American Hustle star and best actress nominee Amy Adams stood out from the pack in a bright pink Roland Mouret dress and Neil Lane diamonds.
Best supporting actress nominee Julia Roberts chose an ivory and black custom printed silk pleated gown by designer Juan Carlos Obando, accessorizing with a Barbara Bui python baguette clutch and a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses.
Blue Jasmine star Cate Blanchett, who is the front-runner for the best actress Oscar, was dressed head-to-toe in Lanvin, including a bottle green stretch crepe dress, crystal-embellished leather belt, and black suede sandals.
