LOS ANGELES - Hollywood's biggest fashion parade, the red carpet outside the Oscars, began heating up on Sunday ahead of the world's top film awards where silent movie "The Artist" is widely seen as the choice for best movie.
Early arrivals included "Artist" actress Berenice Bejo, who is nominated in a supporting role, in a mint green dress, "The Help" star Jessica Chastain in a stunning black gown embroidered in gold and "Descendants" actress Shailene Woodley in white.
Fans who had waited all day lined the red carpet in stadium seats to cheer their favorite stars including George Clooney and his girlfriend, Stacy Keibler. Photographers snapped thousands of pictures and television cameras rolled.
Tim Gunn, co-host of popular fashion TV show "Project Runway," called the Oscars' red carpet, "the runway to end all runways."
But it is later in the evening that the action really begins when comedian Billy Crystal, who returns as Oscar host for the ninth time, takes the stage and the awards begin to flow.
