Helen Hunt In Dolce & Gabbana - 85th Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon‘The Sessions’ star Helen Hunt attended the 85th Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon on Monday at The Beverly Hilton hotel in California.

The Oscar nominee chose a pewter-toned, knee-length dress by Dolce & Gabbana for the occasion. It was straightforward and simple—and safe.

But this classic approach works for the actress, and the understated sophistication was there.

The square neckline remained uncluttered with any jewels, and the ruched fit was flattering.

The shoes, on the other hand, were not. A dynamic pair might have elevated this look, but the light nude, strappy Jimmy Choo sandals did nothing for the dress.

Minimal earrings and a bangle, along with lightly tousled waves and radiant natural makeup, were the finishing touches.
