Best Actress winner Jennifer Lawrence was among the best dressed in a Dior creation. Best Supportng Actress nominee Amy Adams too looked stunning. She wasn’t the only one with a long, dramatic train. Sally Field had one too, age-appropriate, yet reminiscent of singer Rihanna at the recent Grammy Awards. Best Actress nominee Naomi Watts rocked a slinky gunmetal number. Norah Jones and Stacy Keibler too favoured the metallic hue with much success.

Naomi Watts confidently pulled off this sexy Armani Prive creation. Minimal jewellery, simple hair and make-up let the dress speak for itself. Edgy, unique and very memorable.

Veteran actor Sally Field showed us how it’s done in her stunning, age-appropriate Valentino design. Flawless make-up and a confident smile complete the look

Stacy Keibler has a difficult feat to achieve every time she steps on the red carpet — stealing the limelight from beau George Clooney. This Naeem Khan gown does her that favour with its beautiful cut and sexy sheer back. Not to forget, the hair is impeccable.

Olivia Munn looked beautiful in her fresh-off-the-runway Marchesa gown. A sideswept updo and bright lipstick complete the look.

Jessica Chastain stuck to her signature aesthetic, but looked good nonetheless in her strapless Giorgio Armani gown. As usual, there was minimal jewellery, a bold lip colour and no clutch.

Salma Hayek poured her curves into this stunning Alexander McQueen gown. The actor is known to favour cleavage-baring silhouettes, but we’re very grateful for this exception.

The youngest-ever nominee at the Oscars, Quvenzhané Wallis, looks all grown up in her navy blue Giorgio Armani gown. Her accessories include a purse designed with her own dog as inspiration, which she’s been carrying wherever she goes.

Naomie Harris rocked the thigh-high slit in her eco-friendly, award-winning creation by Ghanian designer Michael Badger in a Red Carpet Dress Challenge. The colour is a non-chemical dye, the gown is made using organic material and recycled zippers and is even embroidered with candy wrappers. That’s A for effort.

Charlize Theron’s sporting her new cropped hairdo with aplomb. Her Dior Haute Couture gown is well-tailored and fits her like a dream. Minus one bracelet and plus one dainty necklace, she might’ve looked even better

Amy Adams was the belle of the ball in her Oscar de la Renta gown. The layers of tulle added plenty of drama, so skipping heavy accessories was a wise decision. She was among the best dressed at the event.

Before changing for her act on stage, Norah Jones hit the red carpet in a gunmetal Tadashi Shoji number. The gown flattered her figure beautifully and the hairdo kept things interesting.

Comic relief
Trust Jim Carrey to take fashion risks on a red carpet. He wore these outrageous ‘shoes’ to an Oscar viewing party, making quite the statement amid all the women in their sky-high heels.
