The 85th Annual Academy Awards was a cornucopia of great talent and enviable fashions coming together to celebrate the magic of the silver screen. Half the fun is watching the most beautiful women in the world walk down the red carpet in dresses as magical as anything we’d see on film. Indeed, many of the ladies this year seemed to be in the fairytale spirit judging from the number of ball gowns with trains and similar silhouettes that dominated the evening.
Let’s lead with Amanda Seyfried’s lavender gown with keyhole detailing.

The structured number boasted exquisite embroidery in pale yellow and a fabulous train which lent grace to her lissom form. Her pale skin tone lit up by the colors, Amanda looked regal!
Amy Adams has played princess in many movies and her powder blue strapless gown could be borrowed from any of those wardrobes.
