Perhaps due to the serious nature of the film — a biopic of Margaret Thatcher, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom — the ladies in attendance opted for a sober little black dress look. Some were hits, some were misses. And Coco Rocha, bless her heart, accidentally got lost on the way to the Oscars red carpet.
