Everyone who earned a coveted nod gathered at the Beverly Hilton Hotel for the 2018 Oscars Luncheon, where they schmoozed and reveled in the excitement of being recognized.  Two ladies who seemed extra thrilled to be there with each other? Lady Bird director Greta Gerwig and the film's star Saoirse Ronan. The friends and coworkers shared a sweet moment inside the luncheon, embracing each other amidst the excitement. Naturally, they both looked very chic for the occasion with Ronan wearing an orange and red slip dress and Gerwig in a pink and blue tweed look.  They weren't the only ones enjoying the special lunch together. Laura Dern shared plenty of snaps from the afternoon on Instagram, posting shots of herself with various nominees, including Kobe Bryant, Meryl Streep, and Timothée Chalamet.  Below, see more of the best lead and supporting actress nominees—already winners in our eyes—at the luncheon.

Jessica Chastain Takes the Plunge in Black Lace Gown at the Palm Springs Film Festival

Despite the freezing temperatures plaguing the country, Jessica Chastain brought the heat to the red carpet at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on Tuesday. As she was honored with the Chairman’s Award, the flame-haired beauty took her style cues from a by-gone era, revealing a sexy hint of film noir for the occasion. Looking every inch the leading lady, Chastain took the plunge in a black halter-style couture gown that teased some skin with delicate lace and a daring high-slit.  The two-time Oscar nominee topped off her elegant ensemble with a swipe of red lipstick and sparkling drop earrings that peaked out from her bombshell waves. Chastain was also joined on the red carpet by fellow style stars, many of whom eschewed black for a more colorful palette. Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot—who collected the Rising Star Award at the gala—looked like a ray of sunshine in a canary yellow number with plenty of cut-outs, while Salma Hayek opted for an eye-catching Gucci gown in emerald green.
