Michelle Williams did the same, wearing minimal makeup with her beaded Chanel dress. She had subtle smoky eyes, pale pink blush and pale pink lipstick. All in all, she looked gorgeous!

Michelle Williams went from teen star to indie darling almost overnight. After her stint on Dawson's Creek, she took a break to focus on more serious acting pursuits. Since then, she's received critical recognition for her roles in Brokeback Mountain, Wendy and Lucy and Blue Valentine. She's been nominated twice for an Oscar and with the careful attention she pays to her career choices, she's sure to be nominated many more times.

The 83rd Annual Academy Awards were held February 27, 2011 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. James Franco and Anne Hathaway hosted the festivities, which honored the best films of 2010. Hathaway, who employed her stylist gal pal Rachel Zoe to dress her for the event, looked fabulous as always. And as well she should: Zoe's fee was reportedly astronomical!
