Lady Gaga brought the wow-factor: not just in her beautiful rendition of 'Shallow' with Bradley Cooper, but also in her structural Alexander McQueen gown. She was also lucky enough to wear the 128.54 carat Tiffany diamond, last worn by none other than Audrey Hepburn.

Gemma Chan was another to opt for a candy pink shade. Statuesque in her Valentino gown, the 'Crazy Rich Asians' star was the picture of serenity (probably thanks to those pockets).

Sarah Paulson took this shade a little deeper and chose a raspberry pink Brandon Maxwell gown. Matching Chan's Valentino number in volume, the waistline cut-outs made for a highly polished ensemble.
