Dress: Dior Haute Couture
The blonde beauty sashayed down the red carpet in this body-hugging white Dior Haute Couture peplum dress and Harry Winston jewels, looking elegant, refined, and every bit the movie star! But she’s known to work hard for that body; the gorgeous actress was recently spotted picking up a pressed juice after a workout at Equinox in West Hollywood just days before the Oscars.
"I’m sure there are women who never have to worry about what they eat, but I do," she told UK Vogue. "I exercise a lot, and I hike a lot. My mom and I hike at least three times a week."

Jennifer Hudson was simply dazzling in this metallic blue, thigh-baring, body-hugging Roberto Cavalli creation. "It took three days of fittings, three hours each day to make my decision. It’s a serious decision. My stylist cried tears of joy [when I finally decided]," she told Ryan Seacrest during the E! Red Carpet pre-show. Hudson maintains her slim silhouette with regular exercise and portion control and says she is more proud of her weight loss success than her Oscar. You go girl!

It’s hard to believe fitness fanatic Jane Fonda is 75, especially after seeing her in this curve-hugging retro ensemble! Channeling her inner Dynasty diva, she wowed on the red carpet with a strong-shouldered, waist-cinching, fluorescent yellow Versace. As an inspiration to women everywhere, the ageless A-lister has always stressed the importance of exercise.
“It gives you a sense of power and control… I realized when I started the business that it wasn’t just about being thin or something. It had to do with your brain, your attitude about yourself, the sense that you had some control over your life,” she says.

Dress: Alexis Mabille Couture
The sexy Star Trek 2 star heated up the Oscars in this gorgeous Alexis Mabille Couture dress that hugged her curves in all the right places. Looking slim and statuesque, the 34-year-old actress added some bling by Neil Lane and a clutch by Salvatore Ferragamo. Just like her fashion, Saldana likes to mix up her workouts, too. “I get bored really easily,” she says. But don’t expect to find her doing crash diets or starving herself. “You can’t forget that you only live once, you have to enjoy the pleasures of life and you also have to enjoy the work in life. That means if you like to eat, then work out, be healthy!”

Instead of her usual black tailored dress, Jennifer Aniston sizzled in this jaw-dropping classic Valentino ball gown. No question, she was red hot! The 44-year-old actress accessorized her stunning look with a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch, Fred Leighton jewels, and of course her handsome fiancé, Justin Theroux. What’s her secret to getting red carpet ready? “I get up and allow 40 minutes to work out every day: cross-training with sit-ups, running, weights,” she recently told People. “I had a knee injury, so I’m not at my fighting-shape weight, which is fine. It’s nice to be a little curvier sometimes.”
