Jennifer Lawrence was the toast of the Oscars 2013 red carpet tonight in a romantic pastel pink gown.

The Silver Linings Playbook actress stole the show from the peers in a shaped Dior Haute Couture gown, with the creped pattern and tiered skirting at the rear making for a beautiful, romantic look.

Arriving at the Academy Awards with her hair in a chic updo, the 22-year-old kept her accessories to a minimum, teaming her gown with a crystal beaded necklace and diamond-encrusted drop earrings.

The stunning blush gown had Jennifer standing head and shoulders above the rest on the red carpet, which was a sea of pastel, colour-pop and embellished gowns tonight.

Also plumping for the pastel trend was Anne Hathaway, who stepped out in a satin Prada gown with a cross-back.

Sadly for the Les Miserables actress - who admitted she only chose the gown three hours before hitting the red carpet - she suffered an embarrassing wardobe malfunction, after going without a bra.

Poor Anne revealed far more than she intended to on the night, with her nipples rather obviously on display under the material of the gown.

Amanda Seyfried, Kristen Stewart and Jessica Chastain were some of the A-listers who kept it pale and interesting on Oscars night, ditching the all-black affair we've grown used to seeing.

Jessica Chastain went for old-Hollywood glamour in a nude Armani Prive gown with silver cobweb-detailing, while Amanda Seyfried wowed in a white and silver Alexander McQueen halterneck gown.

Kristen Stewart hobbled along the red carpet on crutches, having suffered a mystery accident, showcasing the trend for feathers in Reem Acra.

Pillarbox-red was another popular trend in Hollywood tonight, with Jennifer Aniston leading the way in a stunning Valentino ballgown.

The actress typically plumps for safe black on the red carpet, but wowed us in the full-skirted number, which was fitted to the waist and featured a huge, billowing skirting.

While stylists typically advise stars to steer clear of clashing with the carpet in the colour, Jen An wasn't the only one going against the grain - with Lincoln star Sally Field also opting for the hue.

Block-colouring packed a real punch on the Oscars 2013 red carpet, with Reese Witherspoon showcasing a Louis Vuitton peacock-blue bustier gown with black edging at the neckline.

Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman and Adele were just some of that stars who plumped for embellishments on the night, each adding a twist to their LBDs with statement detailing.
