Jennifer Hudson’s shiny, second-skin blue Roberto Cavalli almost looked like an animal print.

Amy Adams might not have won any awards, but she sparkled in a powder blue princess dress by Oscar de la Renta

Jane Fonda wore bright taxicab yellow by Versace showing that you can go bold at any age

Jennifer Lawrence was the belle of the ball in a white-and-pale pink strapless gown with fitted bustier and poufy hemline, diamond-ball earrings and a delicate long necklace that hung down her back.

Reese Witherspoon got the strapless memo, but changed up the colour palette in a cobalt blue and black Louis Vuitton, and glammed it up with some old-school sculpted Veronica Lake curls.

Charlize Theron was sleek in an angular strapless dress with a fashion-right peplum and a buzz-cut hairdo.

Jennifer Aniston stood out from the crowd in a fire engine red ballgown by Valentino

Amanda Sey-fried’s metallic hal-ter dress by Alexan-der McQueen with a keyhole opening was three months in the making

Jessica Chastain in a glistening copper-tone strapless gown with mermaid hem, looked like an old-world glamorous movie star. “I chose it because it was a throwback to old Holly-wood. It’s a very ‘Happy birthday, Mr. President’ dress,” she said.

Kristen Stewart had on an even paler blush gown; hers a hand-beaded strapless with tulle inserts by Reem Acra. She accentuated her gown with a 19th-century Fred Leighton necklace with 91 graduated diamonds.

Naomi Watts wore a gunmetal beaded gown with a geometric cutout on the bodice, also by Armani.

Anne Hathaway had “an Audrey Hepburn moment” in her pale pink Prada dress. But the awkwardly placed darts in the bust led some to criticse her look. The actress said her dress with a seemingly sweet vibe but with a strategically open back and sexy sides, was a last-minute choice. “I didn’t know what I was wearing until about three hours ago,” she said.

Halle Berry said she trusted Donatella Ver-sace to dress her like the Bond girl that she has been on the big screen. She ended up in a silver beaded-and-black gown with long sleeves and V neck.
