Learning from last year’s mistake (a.k.a the “curtain dress”), Adele chose a number by Jenny Packham to stun the red carpet this year. The best original song winner for “Skyfall” played it safe but still looked fabulous. Adele wore a beaded black gown with sheer sleeves and paired it nicely with a simple half-up, half-down hairstyle. She kept her make-up simple with sleek black eyeliner and executed this look perfectly.


Jennifer Lawrence 

Best Actress for “Silver Linings Playbook” wasn’t the only thing Jennifer Lawrence won tonight, she also stunned in this Dior Haute Couture gown. The actress accessorized it perfectly with a Roger Vivier clutch and sparkling Chopard jewels. She added her own personal flare by wearing the diamond Chopard necklace backwards, could we love her more?

Anne Hathaway 

Despite winning best supporting actress, Anne Hathaway fell victim to a major wardrobe malfunction this year. She arrived wearing a gorgeous petal pink Prada dress but that immediately took a back seat to her nipple crisis. It probably wasn’t the best choice to pick out you’re outfit 3 hours before the event, Anne. She definitely forgot some crucial elements, let me introduce you to breast petals. Her nipples were literally poking out of her dress, which inspired some hilarious trends on Twitter including #Nipplegate #LesNipplerables and someone even went as far as @HathawayNipple, so great. 


Amy Adams 

The Best Supporting Actor nominee for her work in “The Master” looked glamorous in Oscar de la Renta. The beautiful pale gray gown featured a beaded bodice and ruffled tiered dress. The bottom was full, very full, and yes there was a train. But instead of looking like a fairy-tale princess, Adams looked more Hollywood Glam by accessorizing it perfectly. She finished her look with a chic up do and simple diamond earrings. Although she didn’t win, Adams rocked the red carpet and is sure to land a spot on the best dressed.
