As the youngest Academy Award nominee ever, Quvenzhane Wallis walked the red carpet at the 2013 Oscars on Sunday in Los Angeles.

The nine-year-old wore a navy tulle Giorgio Armani design embellished with black beading. Her princess-style dress was accessorized with a floor-grazing shaw, a sparkly headband, and drop earrings.

One of her more stand out accents was her puppy purse, which was designed after her own dog.

Helen Hunt In H&M – 2013 Oscars

Helen Hunt took to the red carpet in a surprising design at Sunday’s 2013 Oscars in Los Angeles.

Nominated for ‘The Sessions’, Helen could have had any designer of her choosing but she opted for a gown by H&M to support the mass retailer’s global green initiative which she style with a Swarovski clutch.

Minus the navy colour and satin material, the strapless column silhouette looked similar to her look from the SAG Awards. I love an affordable gown as much as the next gal but I wish the material hadn’t wrinkled so much before her red carpet strut. Wrinkles aside, I think the dress worked well on Helen.

While the actress opted for a look from a mass retailer, she sparkled in upwards of $700,000 in jewels from Martin Katz with a multi-strand silver necklace, statement-making bangles, and stud earrings.

Adele In Jenny Packham – 2013 Oscars

Academy Award nominee for best original song for ‘Skyfall’ and a performer of the evening, Adele, took to the red carpet at Sunday’s 2013 Oscars at the Dolby Theater in L.A.

After after a brief trial with colour at the Grammy Awards, Adele opted for her love of black with a dress from Jenny Packham.

I love Adele in a black gown—it looks so lovely against her alabaster skin—especially this beaded embellished design with sheer to-the-elbow sleeves and a perfectly nipped in waist. She looks elegant, confident, and very Oscars-appropriate.

Aside from the sparkle on her gown, Adele accessorized with a ring and earrings from Harry Winston. The singer’s half-up-half-down hairstyle with a little volume and face-framing strands allowed her retro eyeliner to really pop.

Do you love that Adele went back to her signature black dress style?

Anne Hathaway In Prada – 2013 Oscars

Anne Hathaway graced the red carpet on Sunday evening at the 2013 Oscars hosted at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

Nominated for her role in ‘Les Misérables’, Anne chose a pink column-style gown from Prada. The halter neck tied down the back of the dress like a present ribbon. While this design wasn’t my favorite of the night, the dress has a very delicate feel that suits Anne and her equally delicate features well.

The actress joined Jennifer Lawrence in sporting the back jewelry trend by letting her floral necklace from Tiffany & Co. drape past her shoulders. I love the trend, but in this case the necklace competes with the crisscross of the open back of the dress. Anne wore beautiful silver ankle strap heels and a pink Roger Vivier clutch.

Anne completed her Oscars look with a side swept hairstyle and light pink lip to match her hue of choice.

Naomi Watts literally sparkled as she made her way down the red carpet at the 2013 Oscars, hosted at the Dolby Theater, on Sunday evening.

To celebrate her nomination in ‘The Impossible’ Naomi opted for a custom Armani Privé gown. 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.

Rosie Huntington Whiteley joined many fellow fashion-lovers at the Chanel Pre-Oscar Dinner held at L.A.’s Madeo Restaurant on Saturday.

The model wore a jumpsuit from Chanel Spring 2013.

Rosie not only looked fresh in one of spring’s top trends, stripes, but she also stood out in a sea of dresses. She looked beautiful in the strapless, wide legged, blue and white jumpsuit.

To add a dose of elegance to a sporty ensemble she layered on a pearl necklace from Chanel and carried a ‘Lego’ bag from the hosting design label.

Rosie topped off her look with beautifully glossy waves reminiscent of old Hollywood and a pink pout.

Andrea Riseborough In Chanel – 2013 Chanel Pre-Oscar Dinner

Andrea Riseborough made an appearance at the Chanel Pre-Oscar Dinner held at L.A.’s Madeo Restaurant on Saturday.

The actress wore a look straight from the Chanel Spring 2013 runway collection.

Andrea decided to go with a classic Chanel look this time around in a swingy, blue tweed dress with an oversized peter pan collar and red piping. I like that she really went for the classic Chanel style complete with a quilted clutch and cap-toed heels.

Andrea completed her look with a softly curled under ‘do pinned back just above the temple. I think the overall look is lovely, but as it is very sweet and demure, I would have liked to see a less schoolgirl hairstyle for a bit more edge.

What do you think: too sweet, or just perfect?
