The award for Best Supporting Actress goes to Penelope Cruz, Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Heath Ledger won the Best Supporting Actor award. Early actors to walk the red carpet included the stars of Slumdog Millionaire Dev Patel and Freida Pinto. Pinto wore a blue John Galliano gown with one bare shoulder and one lacey arm along with a 100-year-old diamond ring from India. Jennifer Aniston sparkles in a silver Valentino gown.
Oscar Dresses – Amy Adams paired her floor-sweeping Carolina Herrera red strapless gown with a chunky green, blue and red necklace from Fred Leighton. Vanessa Hudgens’s Marchesa gown had the fishtail hem added later by the designer for her. Diane Lane appeared in a Dolce & Gabbana black fishtail gown with Josh Brolin, also in Dolce. Beyonce’s black and gold fishtail dress did the silhouette in dramatic colours, while Anne Hathaway’s white Armani fishtail dress was awash in paillettes, reminescent of Marion Cotillard’s dress from 2008, with a buckle in back. Sarah Jessica Parker wore a Dior Haute Couture strapless gown that she described as “barely mint” and that gave her attention-grabbing cleavage. Heidi Klum paired a bright red Roland Mouret dress that took its cues from origami, with red spindly high heels and chunky earrings and bracelets, including a Diet Coke charm that she designed to benefit a charity. Penelope Cruz’s white vintage Pierre Balmain gown was ruched and embellished with sparkles. Kate Winslet’s one-shouldered gown was two-tone: grey on one side of the body, black on the other.
