Let's begin with the beginning and the end: Lupita Nyong'o. Killing it softly (or, rather boldly) in Ralph Lauren Collection. The jewels are by Fred Leighton and although Nick Barose did her makeup, I'll say the glow is by her mother and father.
Her entire Glam Squad deserves a round of applause! Bravo to stylist Michaela Erlanger, hairstylist Larry Jarah Sims, the previously mentioned Nick Barose for the perfect Chanel reds on her lips (Pirate lipstick (above) and Profound lip liner) and the positively lovely jazz singer turned manicurist to the stars Deborah Lippman who painted her awesome shimmery pinkish gold Diamonds And Pearls on Lupita's nails.
Kerry Washington's Balenciaga baby bump was flawless, of course. The custom gown? The clutch? Everything! Like Lupita, she too sparkled in Fred Leighton jewels and a beautiful vintage Movado watch.
Kerry is a spokesperson and creative consultant for Neutrogena and her makeup artist Carola Gonzalez put Neutrogena's MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Warm Caramel to good use on her lips.
As much as I loved certain looks, Amy Adams in this bi-color Valentino Couture was one of the few that I could actually see myself in. Her hair was beautiful as well.
She went with soft spring colors from Laura Mercier's Spring 2014 collection on her eyes (Ballet Pink) cheeks (Praline - above) and lips (a blend of Discretion and Tangerine lipsticks. Try Discrete if you prefer a gloss). Absolutely stunning.
Well, Cate Blanchett, being Cate Blanchett, was a vision in this tulle and lace Armani Privé couture gown and Chopard diamond earrings.
Australian actress Margot Robbie is another newcomer to the red carpet. I loved her in this white Gucci and can't wait to see more of her in the weeks and years to come.
Amy Poehler looked great in custom Stella McCartney all night, beginning with this black cady gown with a symmetric bodice topped by a black belt. The geometric cuff by Karla Welch for Jacob & Co. was the perfect compliment to her look.
