Hollywood’s finest leading ladies led the way in pale and interesting gowns at the film industry’s biggest night of the year, the Academy Awards, on Sunday.
Jennifer Lawrence, who took home the Oscar for Best Actress for her part in Silver Linings Playbook, also triumphed in the style stakes in her strapless Dior Haute Couture gown. The 22 year old highlighted her slim waist in the pretty gown, the train of which caused her to have an unfortunate slip up as she made her way to collect her award.
But Jennifer wasn’t the only star who opted for a pale hue on the red carpet at the ceremony.
Zero Dark Thirty star Jessica Chastain, who missed out on the Best Actress prize to Jennifer, looked both elegant and ethereal in her sequinned Armani Prive nude gown, with her fiery hair in vintage style soft waves.
“It’s very Happy Birthday Mr President,” she laughed of her decision to pay homage to old Hollywood as she chatted to E!’s Ryan Seacrest.
Jessica’s fellow redhead and Oscar nominee Amy Adams looked equally striking on the red carpet in a powder blue princess dress by Oscar de la Renta.
Anne Hathaway, who took home the Best Supporting Actress award for her role as Fantine in Les Miserables, channelled style icon Audrey Hepburn in her pale pink Prada dress, which featured a bow detail on the back.
According to reports, the actress had changed her mind and swapped from the original Valentino gown she had been planning to wear just before the ceremony. She said: “I didn’t know until three hours beforehand!”
Another popular trend on the red carpet was metallics, with Naomi Watts and Catherine Zeta Jones all sporting glittering gowns. Plenty of celebrities opted for heavily embellished creations, including Sandra Bullock in Elie Saab, Nicole Kidman in L’Wren Scott, Amanda Seyfried in Alexander McQueen and Kristen Stewart, who arrived on crutches in a Reem Acra dress.
