The unique jewellery chosen was all gold with diamonds and included a headband, 19th century snake bracelet and a frog shaped ring, which the actress explained was for good luck.         Sandra Bullock also wore a strapless navy gown, this one by Alexander McQueen. The sweetheart neckline, draped fabric and train created an elegant look.

The halter neck gown was of an ivory shade with a nude underlay and small sweep train. She accessorised with a pearl-studded bracelet and pearl earrings that matched the colour of the dress.         Kate Hudson looked amazing in a classy Atelier Versace creation. The caped gown featured shoulder pads, a silky train and a woven waist detail. The deep v plunge neckline also added a dramatic touch to the delicately beaded dress.         Sarah Paulson wore this champagne shaded Elie Saab dress.
