Talk about a power couple: Matthew McConaughey took home an Oscar, while wife Camila’s stunning custom Gabriela Cadena gown beat out some of the night’s nominees for a spot on our editors’ picks list. But the 31-year-old Brazilian beauty says it’s never her intention to be in the spotlight when she’s on the red carpet supporting her man.

“I wanted to keep it simple because I want to show respect toward the reason that I’m there. I think that everybody who goes to a special event has their place,” McConaughey, who teamed up with Bailey’s before the Oscars, tells PEOPLE. “I don’t necessarily feel comfortable showing up with the biggest dress of the night because I’m not one of the nominees.” But despite her best efforts, her pale pink, draped dress with a regal half cape gown was awfully hard to overlook.

McConaughey dished on the process of creating the dress from scratch, looking at numerous sketches and working with the designer to nail down the gown’s shape and pastel color. “The wow factor means doing a silhouette that I’ve never done before … It took me a minute, but I love it!” she says. “We wanted to stick with the natural colors, but I had this one tone that would not leave my mind. We were supposed to do it a different color, but last minute I called and said, ‘Do the dress in this color.’ It was not leaving my mind.”

We think quite a few fashion fans had the same sentiment Sunday night. What do you think of the star’s Oscars outfit? Is she on your Best Dressed list? Tell us below!

One of the many hats Angelina Jolie wears (actress, mom, humanitarian) is “jewelry designer.” And one of her biggest fans is her doting partner Brad Pitt. So what better way to showcase her designs than on the biggest style stage in the world: the Oscars?

Sunday night, Pitt could be seen sporting pieces from Jolie’s Style of Jolie jewelry line with Robert Procop, including a dramatic ring consisting of a large dark stone of an asymmetric cut resting in a matte gold setting. It’s no surprise that Pitt considers his talented partner “”my better, other-worldly half,” as he told PEOPLE Sunday night.

Pitt also has a set of cufflinks created just for him by Jolie as a gift, consisting of tablet diamond set into yellow gold. In addition to being stylish, they have sentimental value. “Brad’s specially designed cufflinks were a gift from Angelina one year for Christmas,” said Procop in a statement. Sure beats socks!

What do you think of Pitt’s show of support for Jolie? Do you like the look? Tell us below!

After her hair trial Friday, Anna Kendrick had us expecting a romantic, curly updo to go with a dramatic dress. So we have to hand it to her for keeping us on our toes, arriving on the Oscars red carpet with a sleek, simple updo to go with her modern, sheer J. Mendel dress.

First things first: The hair was a huge hit. “Everyone said as she left that they were very thankful. Her clothing stylist was like, ‘I’m so glad, you did such a great job, she looks really amazing’ and it was really nice. But it was always going to look amazing on Anna, wasn’t it?” he says.
