Charlize Theronwore a Dior Haute Couture white silk bustier dress with embroidered detailing on the peplum.
Harry Winston diamond stud earrings and bracelets offer the only accent to the star’s look, as both her makeup and super short hair are the definition of subtle.
Jessica Chastainwore a nude Armani Privé custom gown that screamed movie star.
This look unapologetically oozed old Hollywood glamour, especially with Jessica’s soft side-swept waves and her saturated ruby lip.
Normally with her fair skin tone and flame-red hair, this flesh-coloured, monotone palette could be problematic. But the subtle, sequin shimmer of the gown mixed with the bold lippie and the sparkle from Harry Winston diamond earrings and a ’60s-era Harry Winston bracelet pull it all together.
Jennifer Lawrencewore Dior Haute Couture for her big night, and the dress made a big impact.
By choosing to wear a delicate Chopard necklace down her back, Jennifer is undoubtably restarting a back jewelry trend, and I’m eager to see how quickly it takes off.
Jennifer’s flawless skin and subtle smokey eyes keep her makeup look fresh and young, which keeps the voluminous dress from aging her. I have a feeling people will be crying ‘wedding gown’ on this one, but I think it’s stunning and perfectly apropos for the occasion.
Jennifer Anistonwore Valentino red, as she captured stares and camera flashes in her ball gown from the designer’s Spring 2013 Couture runway.
The strapless bodice and full skirt was a departure for Jennifer, who often opts for monochromatic tones and typically favours more body-conscious looks.
Minimal jewels, including geometric diamond earrings and bangle bracelets, along with a matching red Salvatore Ferragamo clutch completed the look.
Naomi Wattsopted for a custom gown from Giorgio Armani Prive. The grey-ish, silver-y sequin gown was a perfect combination of stunning and sexy. Naomi definitely stood out on the red carpet in this beautiful one-shoulder cutout design.
The fully sequined gown called for minimal accessories, and Naomi piled on just the right about of bling with an eye-catching bracelet, cocktail ring, and diamond drop earrings.
The actress knows a good hairstyle that works: the slightly messy updo. The volume of her hair, rosy cheeks and light pink lip complimented the metallic gown perfectly.
