Reese is definitely looking chic in this simple Louis Vuitton strapless gown, perfect for petites in a single solid colour.
The horizontal lines on this Tadashi Shoji gown are risky for a petite woman, she still pulls it off as the lower third of the dress elongates her enough and the one shoulder is a flattering silhouette for petites.
Although the neckline on this Alexander Mcqueen dress is overpowering on Salma's short stature, height is still added by her high hair-do and the uniform colour of the dress.
Petite Amanda really portrays a glamorous look with this Alexander Mcqueen dress, complimented with Lorraine Schwartz jewels making her glisten on the red carpet.
A lovely Miu Miu dress that compliments Kerry's slim and petite body frame. The embellishment is perfectly proportioned so it doesn't segment the dress too much.
Kristen is wearing a Tony Ward shimmering black gown that flows elegantly to show off her hourglass silhouette perfectly.
Amy is wearing an Oscar De La Renta feathered gown. Although we love the designer who is famous for feminine dresses with a great colour and cut, the over feathered dress tail seems too bird-like for our liking.
This Giorgio Armani gown is too bland with a colour that blends in with Jessica's skin tone. Although the Zero Dark Thirty star wore a custom made dress, it didn't give enough contrast to compliment her.
We know Kim is pregnant but a tight fitting white outfit is totally ungraceful especially when white shows all your bumps in the wrong places. This Donna Karan dress is a bit understated for the event, she could have made more of an effort!
Melissa's outfit by David Meister makes her look sloppy and under-dressed for the Oscars. Too much fabric and excess paneling is not flattering for a petite woman.
This Marchesa gown could have been a winner but the lower part of the dress from the waist downwards looked messy and unflattering as the folds didn't fall correctly to compliment her usual petite slender style.
Helena always shocks people with her extravagant dress sense and she certainly didn't disappoint. Her choice of Vivienne Westwood is too gathered at the bottom giving a dull and slouchy look.
