Jennifer Hudson, a onetime Best Supporting Actress winner, donned a long-sleeved, midnight blue lace dress by Roberto Cavalli for the 2013 Oscars. It was certainly a shade not worn by other celebs on the red carpet, and it made her stand out.

The frock covered her up, allowing for little flashes of skin from underneath the lace. It actually looked like second skin and had a bit of an exotic vibe.

J. Hud also wore her black hair (read: mega extensions) sleek and stick straight, paired with heavy bangs that framed her face. It was a sexy coif, for sure.
