The starlet donned a sparkling red L'wren Scott dress and dazzlingChopard High Jewelry diamond earrings for her post-pregnancy Oscar appearance, stepping out out to support her hubby.
Javier was nominated for Best Actorfor Spanish flickBiutiful – his third nomination to date - but was pipped to the post by Brit actor Colin Firth, whose film The King’s Speech swept the board at the event.
