Though there are definite trends when it comes to which outfits enable stars to look their best on the Oscars red carpet, there is one star who seems to defy those trends: Jennifer Hudson. The 2007 Academy Award winner wore a brown Oscar de la Renta gown when she won Best Supporting Actress in 2007 and an orange Versace dress in 2011. Both looks won Hudson major praise, despite the fact that orange and brown are the colors least likely to garner a woman praise at the Oscars.

Check out OnlineCasino.ca's full analysis here to find out the looks you're most likely to see on Best Dressed lists following this Sunday's Academy Awards.
