The ladies were at their best as they arrived at the 85th Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon at the Beverly Hilton hotel in California.

Jennifer Lawrence, who is nominated in the best supporting category for her role in Silver Linings Playbook, looked gorgeous in a napkin-white Chloé Spring 2013 dress. She combined it with black Casadei pumps and a cobalt blue cocktail ring. She showed off a new hairstyle at the event- sweeping her hair back and down over one shoulder.

Anne Hathaway looked elegant in a black dress by The Row with a cascading ruffle at the back. The Les Miserables actress styled it with matching black sandals, Jamie Wolf earrings, Jennifer Meyer bracelets and rings and completed the look with a simple pink lip colour.

Meanwhile, Naomi Watts also went for black and sizzled in a Valentino frock with rose-inspired embroidery. She opted for Christian Louboutin's PVC and leather 'Paulina' pumps. She kept her look simple with side-parted curls.

Jessica Chastain went for an Erdem's Pre-Fall 2013 dress with bright rose and dusty blue floral embroidery and sheer lace sleeves. She added it with a pair of nude shade Christian Louboutins, leaving her hair loose.

Helen Hunt looked graceful in a Dolce & Gabbana dress with light nude, strappy Jimmy Choo sandals. She went for nominal make up and accessories which include earrings and solo bangle.

Quvenzhane Wallis who is nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for her role in the film Beasts of the Southern Wild looked dashing in a purple David Meister frock, encrusted with gems at the neckline. She combined it with earring, a bracelet, a small hair bow and carried one of her signature puppy purse over her shoulder. The nine-year-old was joined by her Oscar-nominated director Benh Zeitlin at the event.

More than 160 nominees attended the lunch and also posed together for the traditional group photo, ahead of the Hollywood's big night. Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane will host Oscar ceremony at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on 24 February.
