Amy Adams wore over $1.3 million worth of jewellery
The `Fighter` actress wore a Cartier platinum and diamond Haute Joaillerie secret watch bracelet, which was worthover $1 million, teamed with 2-carat diamond stud earrings, worth $35,000, and a Cartier platinum and diamond necklace with a carved 33.24-carat emerald, worth approximately $290,000.
The dazzling bracelet was adorned with a 30.75-carat carved emerald and 575 diamonds.
Unfortunately, there was one accessory Amy didn`t get to compliment her jewellery with, in the shape of a trophy, as she lost out to Melissa Leo in the Best Supporting Actress category.
Amy - who wore a L`Wren Scott cap-sleeved gown - admitted she had put a lot of thought, time and effort into her outfit for the event.
Speaking on the red carpet beforehand, she said: "I haven`t even thought about the winning. I`ve just really, really mostly thought about the red carpet up to this point."
After the ceremony, which was held at Hollywood`s Kodak Theatre, Amy was planning to go out to celebrate, but didn`t intend to be out all night because she had to be home for her nine-month-old daughter, Aviana.
The 36-year-old star - who is engaged to actor Darren Le Gallo - added to `Access Hollywood`: "I`ll go out. Aviana will be asleep by then, so I don`t feel too bad. But I can`t stay out too late - she gets up at about 6 o`clock in the morning. I`ll get up with her. She`s so hard to resist. Really!"
Amy wasn?t the only star to impress in the fashion stakes on the red carpet. Singer Celine Dion looked amazing in a Giorgio Armani Prive gown, while Best Actress winner Natalie Portman wore a plum coloured Rodarte silk gown which flattered her baby bump.
Show host Anne Hathaway - who controlled proceedings with James Franco - made an incredible eight costume changes during the evening, wearing dresses by Valentino, Givenchy Haute Couture, Riccardo Tisci, Oscar de la Renta, Atelier Versace, Giorgio Armani Prive, Tom Ford and Vivienne Westwood.
The `King`s Speech` was the big winner at the 83rd Academy Awards picking up four gongs - Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Director for Tom Hooper and Best Actor for Colin Firth.
