The Academy Awards may be about celebrating standouts on the silver screen, but we all know when it comes to the Oscars' red carpet it's time to salute the stars for another achievement — their style.

Sunday night (February 24) had one fierce fashion standout — the fishtail dress. Spotted over and over in the arrivals area, several celebrities opted to enhance their hour-glass frames with this flirty cut. From Kristen Stewart to Nicole Kidman, Hollywood's elite couldn't get enough of this haute hemline!

Here's our breakdown of the Oscars biggest trend.

Catherine Zeta-Jones: She might not be nominated for an Academy Award, but she still managed to steal the show in her form-fitting, gold Zuhair Murad dress. Polished off with striking Lorraine Schwartz jewels, the brunette beauty was one of our favorites!

Nicole Kidman: Holy haute-ness! The Aussie stunner looked statuesque in her sparking L’Wren Scott dress and shoes. Complete with Fred Leighton baubles, we think Kidman's ensemble was a definite winner.

Reese Witherspoon: We love when stars channel Old Hollywood on the red carpet, and no one worked this style better than our girl Reese Witherspoon tonight. Clad in a body-hugging cobalt blue and black Louis Vuitton, Reese furthered her glam getup with jewelry from the same designer. The best part of Witherspoon's look? Her hair! She credits her recent pregnancy for her voluminous locks.

Amanda Seyfried: Now this is how you do sexy without showing too much. The sultry silhouette of Seyfried's custom Alexander McQueen was balanced with her modest neckline. Add in her Roger Vivier shoes and Lorraine Schwartz jewels and this young A-lister was both alluring and appropriate.

Kristen Stewart: Crutches didn’t cramp this celeb’s style! Stewart looked elegant in a beige Reem Acra strapless gown. She accessorized with Fred Leighton jewels and Jimmy Choo shoes.

Maria Menunous: The 34-year-old television personality looked pretty in pink while donning a striking Romona Keveza dress paired with Jimmy Choo shoes and Swarovski accessories. We loved her flirty bouffant hairstyle, too!

Jennifer Hudson: The sexy singer/actress looked lovely in a blue long sleeve Roberto Cavalli Couture dress. She complemented the gown with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, a Jimmy Choo clutch, Sutra jewels, and pin-straight strands.

Zoe Saldana: The brunette beauty turned heads on the red carpet in an Alexis Mabille Couture dress. She topped off her chic look with Neil Lane drop earrings, Roger Vivier shoes, and a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch.
