NEW YORK » Amy Adams wore a strapless, dark blue Gucci couture gown and Hollywood’s “it” fashion darling of the year, Lupita Nyong’o, showed up for the Oscars in a goddess look of ice-blue silk Sunday night.
Nyong’o, atop the awards season’s best-dressed lists as she made the rounds for “12 Years a Slave,” pulled off deep plunges front and back — and pleats top and bottom from Prada.
Fellow fashionista Jennifer Lawrence was the girl on fire in a bright orange-red strapless from Dior, while Cate Blanchett went for a heavily embellished Armani gown in a light tan, paired with huge opal drop earrings by Chopard.
Olivia Wilde, among Hollywood’s best-dressed pregnant ladies this year, went for a chic black sleeveless Valentino that draped rather than hugged her baby bump. Fellow pregnant lady Kerry Washington went for pleated as her bump accessory this time around, also not so tight.
Classic dark blues and blacks were joined by jewel tones, including a bright green Vera Wang for Viola Davis, along with paler looks like Nyong’o's for Portia de Rossi, who wore an ivory Naeem Khan with a beaded halter.
Idina Menzel, among the evening’s performers, showed off a diamond collar necklace with her black gown at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. A few men abandoned black jackets for white ones, including Jared Leto, Matthew McConaughey and Ryan Seacrest.
Kate Hudson went full-on Hollywood in draped white Versace, while the night’s more subdued looks included Julia Roberts, in a dark Givenchy with a ruffle at the waist.
Sandra Bullock wowed in a strapless, deep blue Alexander McQueen that showed off draping below the waist and included a short train.
Lady Gaga was also on hand, in a gold strapless gown she wore with a long sash around her neck.
