From Charlize Theron to Jessica Chastain, the Ladies Impress Us on the Oscars Red Carpet

As Hollywood’s finest talent gathered to celebrate and honor the year’s best work in film, these glamorous stars shined on the Academy Awards red carpet.

She was the ‘it’ girl of the night! Jennifer Lawrence won Best Actress and wore a magnificent, sure-to-be-iconic pale pink gown by Dior Couture. Her subtle make-up, smokey eyes, and Chopard diamond necklace (worn backwards) added just the perfect amount of sparkle.

Also in Dior was Oscar winner Charlize Theron in a strapless, sharp V-neckline number. Charlize’s new pixie cut and Harry Winston jewelry made her look even more stunning.

Best Actress Nominees Naomi Watts and Jessica Chastain opted for shimmer and sparkle in Armani Privé dresses. Naomi chose an asymmetrically cut-out silver sequins number paired with rose lips and a purposefully messy hairstyle– a balance of sexy and radiance. While Jessica oozed sex appeal in a nude beaded gown, Harry Winston jewelry, ruby lips, and a classic side-swept hairdo.

Presenter and previous nominee Queen Latifah marveled in a white Badgley Mischka robe. The striking cut accented her face and gave her figure the right amount of oomph.

Oscar winner Sandra Bullock stunned in a sheer Elie Saab garb. Its slight see-through-ness highlighted the intricate detail of the dress, as well as Sandra’s sophisticated sensuality.

Equally elegant in sheer was Lincoln nominee Sally Field, in a vibrant red Valentino gown. The long sleeves and ruffled hem suited Sally, and proved old Hollywood can still be eye-catching.

At 75 years old, Jane Fonda showed off her fit form in a bright canary yellow Versace number. She completed her bold look with Jimmy Choo nude toned pumps and a bejeweled clutch. Simply stunning!

Metallic gowns that shimmered and sparkled were trendy that night, as were nude tones. But as we noticed, the best make up (smoky eyes, pink lips) for such a dazzling dress is: simple and subtle to emphasize a dress’s glimmer.
