THERE is no bigger night on the Hollywood calendar than the Academy Awards - no award holds such prestige in the film industry, no red carpet enjoys such scrutiny and no event attracts a guest list so star studded. Aquick look at some of the best dressed ladies.
In terms of the style, this year's big fashion story was a preference for the palest of hues. Three of the year's Best Actress nominees - Reese Witherspoon in Tom Ford, Julianne Moore in Chanel and Marion Cotillard in Dior - all wore white, while Jennifer Aniston, Zoe Saldana and Lupita Nyong'o chose gowns in shades of nude. The trend continued to the after-parties, where Natalie Portman and Beyoncé wore almost matching pure white designs.
A big night for the Brits, nominees Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayneboth flew the flag for London style in bespoke looks by Alexander McQueen while Keira Knightley dressed her baby bump in flowing Valentino.
