Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Amy Adams Let Their Hair Down For THR Nominees’ Night

The Hollywood Reporter Oscar Nominees Night

So, Monday was a busy day for Oscar nominee’s and various other stars who buff up guest lists around this time. ‘Tis the month of the Academy Awards and the lead-up to it always has a bunch of events and and other awards shows crammed into a two-month period. The Oscar nominees’ luncheon happened in the afternoon, and as we’ve already reviewed, it was a bit of a boring affair, sartorially speaking. Things looked up a tad more at night, at The Hollywood Reporter Nominees’ Night at Spago, in Beverly Hills.

Where Jennifer Lawrence got it it wrong in Chloe in the afternoon, she fared better here in a nude, bedazzled Versace number with metallic, neutral peep-toe heels. The look is sexier, as the hair’s also thicker and more tousled. Now if only Jen’s team would get their lengths right. This dress should have had a couple of inches lopped off. Jessica Chastain‘s Erdem afternoon look was elegant and feminine, but she sexed it up for the night taking on a black Givenchy Resort 2012 peplum with a draped bodice, paired with a pair of hot smoky, kohl-laden eyes. We like the architectural effect, even though it’s a tad fussy. While Amy Adams earlier outfit somewhat tanked, she did heaps better at the THR bash wearing a lovely, lacy black, peplum dress. She didn’t ditch the nude heels, though. Why, Hollywood, why? With all the shoe designers of the world throwing shoes of every color and size at you — you pick nude, clunky pumps.

Many other celebrities walked the red carpet, as well. Naomi Watts was back, but this time, in a white blazer and tight silver pants which looked effortlessly cool on her. Julia Stiles was there in a deep purple, long-sleeved dress, while Morena Baccarin chose a white patterned flounced frock. Lauren Dern highlighted her incredible figure — how is this woman 45-years-old — by cinching her simple black dress with a belt. And finally, Natasha Bedingfield jollied things up wearing cherry red tights, as pants. We don’t even mind, because she has the personality to pull things off that most people can’t! You can see it all in the gallery below.

Will Francesca Eastwood Be As Successful As These Past Miss Golden Globes?

Francesca Eastwood, next year's Miss Golden Globe, could end up like Hollywood stars Melanie Griffith or Linda Evans, who held the title when they were young.

Being named Miss Golden Globe (or the rare Mr.) must be a strange honor — as far as we can tell, it’s basically the Hollywood Foreign Press saying, “Hey, you’re a young, attractive daughter/son of someone famous. Will you please wear this fancy gown and help hand out awards so we don’t have to hire a model?” On the other hand, it’s also sometimes a nice way for a PYT to get his/her name and face out there. Clint Eastwood’s daughter Francesca was named Miss Golden Globe for 2013 yesterday, and she’ll actually be following in the footsteps of her older sister Kathryn (2005), which is a first. What we’re really wondering is whether the actress — who’s now known mostly due to her mom’s reality show, Mrs. Eastwood and Company — will also be following in the footsteps of the Globe honorees who did make a name for themselves, from The Beverly HillbilliesDonna Douglas and Dynasty‘s Linda Evans to Melanie Griffith and her daughter, Dakota Johnson (Ben and Kate). Check out the ladies (and man) who turned this into a golden (sorry) opportunity:
