Best Supporting Actress nominee Amy Adams typically looks exceptional, but this year all I saw was the exquisite Fred Leighton necklace; the rest of her, including her Carolina Herrera dress, just kind of blended in with carpet.

Mickey Rourke arrived in a sleek and tailored, white and black combo from Jean Paul Gautier. Proving even bad boys have a soft side,  it was accessorized with black cowboy boots and a picture of his beloved dog Loki, worn around his neck.

Recently deceased Loki was "the love of my life," says Rourke.

After quite a tumultuous past year, Best Actress nominee Anne Hathaway emerged on a high note. As usual, she was simply radiating in a paillete-encrusted Armani Prive dress and Cartier jewels. C’est magnifique!

Best Supporting Actress nominee Penelope Cruz was stunning in a vintage Balmain gown, circa 1950, the long coveted dress of Destiny. Accented with chunky Chopard jewels, Penelope was “dressed for a win,” according to Project Runway icon, Tim Gunn. Muy Bonita!
