Also joining the pearly brigade was Gwyneth Paltrow. It's unlikely even Superman could pull off a cape at the Oscars, but the supermum-of-two wore her white Tom Ford number with aplomb.
The red carpet whitewash continued with Rooney Mara, who was angelic in ivory Givency. She joined ethereal goddess Milla Jovovich in beautiful Elie Saab couture.
Other stars had opted for show-stopping shades of traffic light red including Natalie Portman, who was a scarlet starlet in vintage Christian Dior from Spring 1954.
And Emma Stone was tied up in a berry, bow-adorned Giambattista Valli frock.
Michelle Williams, meanwhile, paired her newly peroxide pixie cut with a burnt orange Louis Vuitton number that flattered her trim physique.
