After some questionable choices throughout awards season, Jessica
Chastain finally hit a perfect note at the 85th annual Academy Awards in
a metallic Armani Prive gown. “I chose it because I’m such a fan of
movies, I love cinema so much, and when I saw it, it’s a very ‘Happy
birthday Mr. President’ dress,” she said on the red carpet. “It reminds
me of old Hollywood.”
Another favorite was Kerry Washington from
“Scandal,” who wore an embellished Miu Miu gown with a sleek red skirt.
She kept it simple accessory wise, with just a simple ring as jewelry.
Zoe Saldana, who is poised to reprise her role as Uhura in the upcoming
“Star Trek” sequel, wore a structured Alexis Mabille Couture gown, with a
belt and daring floral shoulder piece.
Jennifer Hudson made a
surprising choice, in a long-sleeved, metallic gown by Roberto Cavalli
Couture. She accessorized with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, a Jimmy Choo
clutch, and Sutra jewelry.
Finally, we have to give props to “Les
Miserables” ingenue Samantha Barks, who went with a plunging Valentino
dress and statement jewelry.
