There was plenty of excitement, nervous energy and a touch of simmering rivalry as the Oscar hopefuls arrived at the 85th Academy Awards nominees luncheon in Beverly Hills.

Anne Hathaway (30) and Naomi Watts (44) kept things chic and simple in little black numbers.

Les Miserables star Anne was wearing one of the Olsen twins' designs and teamed her shift dress with black open toe sandals.

Naomi went for a slash neck Valentino dress with a heavy black lace overlay and deep pockets. The star completed the looks with nude Louboutin heels.

 

Malfunction

She may have suffered a wardrobe malfunction at the SAG Awards, but Jennifer Lawrence (22) hit the right note in her gleaming white Chloe cocktail dress.

The strapless dress featured a peplum hemline and Golden Globe-winning actress Jennifer finished the look off with plain black courts and a tousled up do.

Zero Dark Thirty Jessica Chastain (35) looked fabulous in a floral Erdem dress.

The navy dress ended on the knee and featured an overlay with bubblegum pink applique flowers. Jessica, who is heavily tipped to bag best actress in this month's Oscar's, made the look pop with matching pink lipstick and nude heels.

Amy Adams (38) went for a chiffon purple floral tea dress with nude heels. The delicate dress ended on the knee and featured a high neckline.

And the boys also turned out well and looked sharp in suits.

Silver Linings Playbook star Bradley Cooper (38) went for a charcoal suit with a pale blue grandfather shirt. Ben Affleck (40) looked dashing in a black suit with velvet detail on the lapels and a white shirt.

Robert De Niro (69) mixed things up with a navy jacket and grey suit trousers, while Denzel Washington (58) went for a dark grey suit with a pale pinstripe shirt.
