With the Oscars imminent, awards season, also known as red carpet season, is coming to an end. And the season has become almost as important to designers as it has to actors.

In fact, we'd bet money on all of the above being answers to the inevitable "who are you wearing" question this coming Sunday, as they have been since what seems like the beginning of time. But over the past couple of years, there have been some new names in the red carpet conversation.
