A host of Hollywood stars such as Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Ben Affleck, Bradley Cooper and Anne Hathaway were among the guests at the annual pre-Academy Awards party at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on Monday (February 4).

Chic cocktail dresses were the order of the day at the luncheon, which saw The Impossible star Naomi Watts don a black Valentino shift dress in lace which she paired with nude Christian Louboutin heels.

Zero Dark Thirty star Jessica Chastain looked positively gorgeous in a floral print Erdem dress which featured navy sheer sleeves and a waist cinching belt.

Anne Hathaway went for a minimal but stunning look in a simple black dress by The Row and strappy sandals.

The 2013 Academy Awards will be hosted by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane on Sunday, February 24 from the Dolby Theater in Hollywood.

Take a look at the style from the 85th Academy Awards nominees luncheon below.
