Academy Of Motion Pictures And Sciences - Jennifer Hudson Shines On Oscars Red Carpet

Bright colours were dominant at last night's (27.02.11) Oscars with Jennifer Hudson standing out in her orange dress.

The singer-and-actress showed off her new slimline figure in a stunning floorlength gown by Atelier Versace and while it may have been too much for some women, Jennifer managed to pull it off.

Sandra Bullock - who won the Best Actress accolade at last year's ceremony - also stood out on the red carpet at Los Angeles' Kodak Theatre in a bright red strapless Vera Wang dress, which she chose because she wanted her 13-month-old son Louis to recognise her on TV.

She said: "I chose this Vera Wang gown because my son recognises the colour red, so I figured if he saw me on television he'd look at me instead of Gwyneth (Paltrow) or Nicole (Kidman), which is what usually happens."

Best Actress winner Natalie Portman showed off her growing baby bump in a purple Rodarte dress, while British star Dame Helen Mirren stayed true to her Roots by wearing Vivienne Westwood.

She said of her choice: "I'm flying the flag to support British fashion. She just opened a store here in Los Angeles so I wanted to show everyone how beautiful her dresses are."

Penelope Cruz made her first red carpet appearance since the birth of son Leo last month by looking stunning in a sparkly maroon L'Wren Scott dress, while Halle Berry, Nicole Kidman and Michelle Williams opted for neutral and white shades.
