The Oscars 2013 red carpet is THE place to showcase the latest trends in the fashion world.

Jennifer Lawrence and Anne Hathaway were clearly on the same page when it came to their red carpet accessories too, as both opted to wear their necklaces in reverse this evening.

The actresses, who were both nominated at tonight's Academy Awards, proved it's not just important to think about how your gown looks from the front.

Jennifer Lawrence was the first of the two to showcase the look, teaming her blush-coloured Dior Haute Couture gown with a crystal beaded necklace.

From the front it appeared that the Silver Linings Playbook star was wearing a choker necklace, but as she turned to reveal her dress' tiered skirting, we got a glimpse of the necklace flowing down her back.

The delicate necklace added another fashionable element to the rear view of her gown, which had a romantic feel thanks to the creped pattern and tiered skirting at the back.

Teamed with diamond drop earrings and sparkling eye make up, the young starlet dazzled on the red carpet as she made her way inside.

Anne Hathaway was also showing off the reverse necklace look, opted for a more elaborate, diamond-encrusted pendant than Jennifer's.

The jaw-dropping jewels made way to the dress- cross-back detailing, gathering in a bow at the bottom.

But sadly for Anne, the wardrobe malfunction she suffered in the Prada gown was the most talked about point of her gown.

The Les Miserables actress had a fashion faux pas as a result of her ditching her bra, meaning she revealed a lot more than she intended as the satin material revealed her breasts.
