Oscar Night 2013 — Looking Great on the Red Carpet

Sally Field, George Clooney, Jane Fonda, Robin Roberts and other stars were out, and sparkling

Sally Field

En español | Best supporting actress nominee, Field, 66, who has two Oscars already, arrived with her on-screen son, Lincoln's Joseph Gordon-Levitt, 32, instead of her usual date, off-screen son Sam. She tied her costar's bow tie because he didn’t know how.

Jessica Chastain

The star of Zero Dark Thirty said she loved the old Hollywood glamour of her Armani Privé gown, which she called "a very 'Happy Birthday, Mr. President'" dress. The best actress nominee, 35, brought her grandmother Marilyn as her date, and they sat together during the show.

Jacki Weaver

The Australian actress, 65, a best supporting actress nominee, confessed to missing a brunch with her Silver Linings Playbook buddies because it took her three hours to get ready for the Oscar red carpet. Some of that time was spent putting on $30 million in diamonds.

Jane Fonda

Who would ever believe that Fonda, now starring in HBO's The Newsroom, is 75 years old? The two-time Oscar winner (1978's Coming Home, 1971's Klute) and frequent nominee brightened the red carpet in vibrant yellow Versace.

Douglas + Zeta-Jones

In a golden Zuhair Murad dress that looked like the Oscar itself, Catherine Zeta-Jones, 43, with husband Michael Douglas, 68, evoked classic Hollywood. Zeta-Jones took the stage to perform a song from Chicago, which won her a best supporting actress award in 2003.

Dustin Hoffman

Hoffman, 75, recently honored by the AARP Movies for Grownups Awards, walked the red carpet with his wife of three decades, Lisa, 58. He reminisced about attending his first Oscars ceremony in 1967, as a nominee for The Graduate.

Christopher Plummer

Last year's best supporting actor winner is the oldest performer to ever win an Academy Award, which he did at age 82 for Beginners. With his wife of 43 years, actress Elaine Taylor, 69, at his side, Plummer reported for his Oscar presenting duties.

Helen Hunt

Two stunning facts. First, Hunt turns 50 this year. Second, her navy blue gown was made by the retail clothing chain H&M. "I like that they're making clothes in a sustainable way,” said the best actress nominee for The Sessions, who accessorized with $700,000 in jewels.

Bryan Cranston

One of several stars attending on behalf of best picture Argo, Cranston, 56, walked the red carpet with his wife, actress Robin Dearden, 50. No stranger to such ceremonies, Cranston has Emmy and Golden Globe awards for his starring role in the lauded TV drama Breaking Bad.

Jeffrey Katzenberg

The 62-year-old CEO of DreamWorks Animation received the Academy's Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for his work benefiting  education, art and health-related causes. He would bet on no winners from the red carpet. That's not how studio chiefs roll.

George Clooney

Fresh in from Berlin, where he's filming The Monuments Men, Clooney, 51, walked the red carpet with girlfriend Stacy Keibler, 33, and as a history maker. His nomination as a producer for Argo was his eighth in a sixth category.

Quvenzhané Wallis + Halle Berry

To introduce a tribute to 50 years of 007 on film, former Bond girl Halle Berry (Die Another Day) wore a Donatella Versace dress inspired by the spy series. The 2001 best actress winner, 46, bonded on the red carpet with Wallis, 9, best actress nominee for Beasts of the Southern Wild.

Quentin Tarantino

The director of Django Unchained earned an Oscar, his career second, for best original screenplay and got a 
big shout out from best supporting actor Christoph Waltz. (See the next slide.) The wunderkind director, with his date, writer Lianne Spiderbaby, turns 50 next 
month.

Christoph Waltz

Before accepting his second best supporting actor Oscar, both from Quentin Tarantino films (2009's Inglourious Basterds was the first), Waltz, 56, walked the red carpet 
with wife, Judith Holste. Backstage he told reporters that fellow 
nominees Alan Arkin and Robert De Niro are his role models.

Emmanuelle Riva

What a way to celebrate your 86th birthday. The French actress — Oscar's 
oldest-ever best actress nominee (for her starring role in Amour) — 
just beamed as she walked the red carpet.

Jennifer Garner + Ben Affleck

The cutest couple of the awards season, Affleck and Garner, both 40, said it was "mayhem" at their house on Oscar morning. The Argo director — and best picture winner — took their elder daughter to compete in a local spelling bee because mom was busy in hair and makeup.

Sandra Bullock

Oscar winner (for 2009's The Blind Side) Sandra Bullock, 48, was stunning in a glittery sheer black Elie Saab gown, which she paired with diamond earrings and barrette. Her constant companion, preschool-age son Louis, was not in attendance.

Queen Latifah

Striking a pose in white Badgley Mischka, Queen Latifah, 42, did presenting honors with her Chicago castmates — René Zellweger, Richard Gere and Catherine Zeta-Jones — on the 10th anniversary of their musical.

Hugh Jackman

The versatile actor, 44, attending with wife Deborra-Lee Furness, 57, had reason to be doubly anxious as he hit the red carpet. He was a nominee for best actor and he led the cast of Les Miserables in performing a medley from the film.

Daniel Day-Lewis + Meryl Streep

In accepting his third best actor Oscar, earned for practically becoming America's 16th president in Lincoln, Day-Lewis, 55, joked that Meryl Streep, 63, was originally slated for the role. Likewise, he was to play Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady, the film for which his presenter received her third Oscar.

Bradley Cooper

The best actor nominee for Silver Linings Playbook, 38, brought his feather-clad mom, Gloria, as his Oscar leading lady. Forget Ben and Jen. Bradley and Gloria were the night's cutest couple!

Robin Roberts

It was her first week back at work after taking an extended medical leave from her hosting duties at Good Morning America due to a rare blood disorder. Roberts, 52, dazzled in royal blue velvet during her Oscar pre-show coverage.
