Amid a sea of blacks, whites, gold and silver, these ladies made a statement in pink and how!
IMAGE: Julia Roberts built the anticipation for her Oscar look by skipping the red carpet this year. Instead, she turned heads when she entered on stage in a bright pink on shoulder flowy dress with a leg slit by Elie Saab. Photograph: Kevin Winter/Getty Images
IMAGE: Helen Mirren defied age in a pink tulle gown almost twinning with Sarah Paulson who wore a Brandon Maxwell puff dress in the same colour. The 73 year old looked royal as she finished her look with a diamond necklace, bracelet and earrings. Paulson also wore a diamond set and carried a matching clutch.
