Oscars 2014: Best supporting actress Lupita Nyong'o crowned red carpet queen before winning accolade for 12 Years A Slave
Liza Minnelli has won the fashion shocker prize in an electric blue sack
The stars flocked to the Dolby Theater's red carpet for the 86th Academy Awards, with a range of outfits displayed - from a safely-dressed Amy Adams (navy, a somewhat dull choice) to the electric blue sack chosen by Liza Minnelli.
As anticipated, Best Supporting Actress Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o stunned with a pale blue plunging gown to reinforce her status as Queen of the Red Carpet. She was joined by 12 Years A Slave co-star Chiwetel Ejiofor and the drama's British director Steve McQueen.
Pharrell Williams left his famous Grammy Awards hat at home in favour of a suit...with shorts, while Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch appeared looking suave as ever.
Jared Leto ditched the black for a flashy white tuxedo complete with shiny red bow tie as he claimed the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.
The real Philomena Lee opted for a bright, coral number as she arrived to cheer on British film Philomena, based on her life. Judi Dench, who plays her in the movie, was nominated for Best Actress alongside Gravity's Sandra Bullock and the winner Cate Blanchett.
Blanchett opted for a sparkling flesh-coloured dress adorned with giant silver sequins.
Jennifer Lawrence arrived fashionably late after Twitter was overtaken with cries of "Where is she?" only to trip on the red carpet before the ceremony had even begun.
