It was one of the biggest nights of their lives. And the Best Actress nominees pulled out all the stops as they stepped out at the Oscars 2015 on Sunday night. Julianne Moore, Marion Cotillard, Reese Witherspoon and Felicity Jones shimmered and shone in their dazzling designer gowns.

The beautiful actress kept her beauty look simple, wearing a chic low side chignon, copper eyeshadow and mauve lipstick. Marion Cotillard turned heads in a white Christian Dior Couture number that featured hundreds of cutout holes.

Onlookers were in for a surprise when Marion turned around – the dress featured a baggy back with a black, low-sitting belt making for a ruching effect. Felicity Jones, who is nominated for her role in The Theory of Everything, was every inch a fairytale princess in a Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gown. The actress made a departure from her usually demure style in favour of this show-stopping number with an embellished bodice and a full skirt.

Pale and interesting was the theme of the night, with Lupita Nyong'o, Karolina Kurkova, Gwyneth Paltrow and Naomi Watts all rocking muted colours. Lupita Nyong'o stunned in a Calvin Klein gown embellished to the max – she revealed to reports that it featured over 6,000 pearls.
