The 22-year-old actress looked lovely in a mauve-colored gown with a gathered bodice and an asymmetrical sleeve. Her light brown locks were pulled up into a elegant updo and she kept the jewelry to a minimum. Tres chic!

Before she hit the red carpet, Sarah tweeted a picture of herself posing at a pre-Oscars gathering with the monkey from The Hangover 2, wiriting, "Me and crystal the monkey from hangover 2!!!" She also snapped a shot of a few of the feathered friends from Happy Feet 2.

The 84th Annual Academy Awards aren't all about fashion and footwear, though. This year, stars like George Clooney, Viola Davis, Brad Pitt, Michelle Wiliams, and Meryl Streep are all nominated and are eagerly waiting to hear those five magic words: "And the winner goes to…" Our big money's on the folks behind The Artist. You can catch all of Oscar action on ABC at 7E/4P.
