While acting honours were given to both Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer for their performances in “The Help” they both received best-dressed ensembles as well. Davis shined in a white, Grecian gown by Marchesa with gold detailing, while Spencer wore another Tadashi Shoji in a sparkling, draped silver gown hitting her in all the right places.
Many red carpet hits had pops of colour with Michelle Williams in a red Valentino with lace cap sleeves, along with matching Lanvin clutch, heels and Fred Leighton for Forevermark jewels. Emily Blunt was a knockout in a jade-hued Oscar de la Renta gown with a bow shoulder detail and sexy slit. Kyra Sedgwick just gets better with age and looks red hot in a cutout Pucci gown. And va-va-va voom Sofia Vergara worked that hot pink Marchesa like a pro.
Emma Stone looked elegant in a black, tea-length Alexander McQueen number with a lace bodice. Other black show stoppers were Angelina Jolie’s backless satin Jenny Packham gown paired with gold, vintage jewelry, a Louis Vuitton clutch and Stacy Keibler in a lace Marchesa gown.
Riskiest choices came from “Bridesmaids” star Rose Byrne, who opted to wear pants on the red carpet, being a white, beaded Elie Saab jumpsuit and Zoe Saldana in a white Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci gown and Tiffany jewels.
