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.

Catherine Zeta-Jones In Zuhair Murad – 2013 Oscars

Catherine Zeta Jones put the Oscar himself to shame on the red carpet at the 2013 Oscars held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

The ‘Chicago’ star glittered in a stunning Zuhair Murad Spring 2013 Couture gown with gold art deco swirls.

Catherine long-ago mastered the art of looking sexy and classy simultaneously, and tonight, she doesn’t disappoint.

Dripping in Lorraine Schwartz jewels, gold and unadulterated sex appeal, the lovely star effortlessly wears a gown that could easily overpower a less confident woman.

Ultra long lashes are the most dramatic factor of her otherwise subtle makeup and simple, glossy waves keep the entire look in the easy glamour zone rather than moving into a more forced territory.

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.

Halle Berry added a dose of sex appeal to the red carpet at Sunday’s 2013 Oscars at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.

The ‘Movie 43’ star wowed in a silver and black Atelier Versace gown.

Per usual, Halle looked stunning in this sequined striped gown, and the curved effect of the stripes made her hourglass figure even more va-va-voom. The strong, structured shoulders and long sleeves played perfectly off the peekabook neckline

Halle went for a bed-head messy hairstyle of the best variety that was accented with black drop earrings.

Emmanuelle Riva In Lanvin – 2013 Oscars

As the oldest ever Best Actress nominee, Emmanuelle Riva was sure to get lots of attention as she made her way down the red carpet at the 2013 Oscars held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

The ‘Amour’ actress looked perfectly elegant and age-appropriate in her custom Lanvin gown.

Her red lip proves she knows how to work a current trend, and her statement diamond necklace is an Oscar-worth addition to her ensemble.

What do you think, should the French legend have taken more of a fashion risk, or did she score a win by playing it safe?

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?

Amy Adams In Oscar de la Renta – 2013 Oscars

‘The Master’ actress Amy Adams made a grand entrance at the 2013 Academy Awards red carpet today at California’s Dolby Theatre in the Hollywood & Highland Center.

Before the show even started, the nominee paraded out her own Oscar—Oscar de la Renta, that is—wearing a fairytale-inspired, princess ball-gown by the designer.

The powdery blue colour of this confection could have faded into the background, but not with its extravagant design that featured fluffy layers of feathery tulle that trailed several feet behind her.

Her train nearly needed its own entourage to maneuver down the red carpet line.

Like Jessica Chastain, Amy didn’t go too far with her accessories. With the sweetheart bodice, she skipped a necklace and wore a pair of simple diamond drop earrings and a braided rope bracelet.

Her auburn locks were pulled into a twisted updo, while a petal-pink lip played into the extreme softness of this look.

Up next for Amy is taking on the role of Lois Lane in ‘Man of Steel.’ Was she a superhero of style for you?

Queen Latifah In Badgley Mischka – 2013 Oscars

oscars-queen-latifah

Queen Latifah was one of many actresses to chose white at the 2013 Oscars held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

The ‘Steel Magnolias’ actress and producer wore a simple Badgley Mischka gown with beading along the straps.

As a CoverGirl spokesmodel, it’s no surprise that Queen wore a striking berry shade of CoverGirl lipstick and the shade–along with her lashes, which went on for days, were a beautiful accent to the stark white gown.

I love how simple Queen Latifah kept it on the red carpet, and the white is beautiful against her mocha skin.
