Slideshow: Lovely Ladies To The Rescue!

There were so many people at this dang Gala, it felt like more of an event than the Academy Awards (which is a pretty big event in celeb land). We could have included so many more — Emmy Rossum, Fergie-Ferg, Molly Sims, etc. — but these ten ladies about the jump stood out the most.
