About a hundred Hollywood stars were out and about in Los Angeles, California on February 25 (February 24, US time) for the 85th annual Academy Awards.
Of course, the ladies— particularly the top nominees— decked out in their fabulous formal wear and wowed the crowd at the red carpet.
JESSICA CHASTAIN. Zero Dark Thirty star Jessica Chastain continues to prove that she deserves to be on any best dressed list as she stepped on the Oscars red carpet wearing an Armani Prive gown.
During her interview with the Associated Press (AP), the best actress nominee called her outfit the “Happy birthday, Mr. President dress,” saying it exudes much of old Hollywood glam.
Truly, the gold metallic dress’ classic sweetheart neckline, mermaid bottom, and awry vein patterns gave off a sexy vibe.
Jessica completed her retro look with side-parted hair set in big waves, and full red lips.
NAOMI WATTS. Best actress nominee Naomi Watts looked all shiny on the red carpet wearing a fully sequined Giorgio Armani dress.
It would’ve been just a simple corset sheath gown, but a crescent cutout on the left shoulder gave it an element of surprise.
Given the dress’ striking silver metallic color, the The Impossible star made sure to keep her accessories to a minimum and her hair bunched into an updo, giving her a clean look.
JENNIFER LAWRENCE. Meanwhile, 22-year-old Jennifer Lawrence looked pretty on the red carpet wearing a white Dior Haute Couture ball gown.
The best actress nominee for Silver Linings Playbook told the AP that it was the first and only dress she tried on for the event.
She completed her pristine look with a bun hairstyle, Chopard jewels, Brian Atwood heels, and silver Clare Vivier purse.
UPDATE: Jennifer Lawrence won the Oscar for best actress.
ANNE HATHAWAY. Always a stunner on the red carpet, Anne Hathaway has once again become the talk of the town because of her fashion choice.
The Les Miserables star wore a pale pink Prada dress, which seemed a little too light and sheer that her nipples have started to become too visible for imagination.
Despite that minor boo-boo, however, the best supporting actress nominee still managed to look sharp and chic in its high square neckline and column silhouette.
She still sported her mod pixie hairdo and accessorized with some precious jewels.
UPDATE: Anne Hathaway received the Oscar for best actress in a supporting role.
AMY ADAMS. Amy Adams reverted back to her old princess image— from her days as star of the Disney movie Enchanted— as she walked the red carpet a fluffy ball gown.
The gray Oscar dela Renta creation featured a textured bustier top with sweetheart neckline, and a train skirt with ruffled layers of chiffon.
When asked about her thoughts and expectations for the evening, the best supporting actress nominee said that she’s more concerned about her train not getting stepped on rather than getting an award.
She tells AP when asked for advice on how to avoid getting stepped on at the red carpet, “Be responsible for your own train.”
