America Ferrera's Oscars gown took 400 hours to make.

The 39-year-old star - who was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for 'Barbie' but lost out to Da'Vine Joy Randolph for 'The Holdovers' - walked the red carpet at the Academy Awards on Sunday (10.03.24) in a stunning pink Versace bodycon gown with a subtle trail made of chainmail, which gave it an unusual glow, and the dress reportedly required the work of seven tailors over a huge number of hours, ABC News revealed.

For jewellery, America opted for items from Pomallato, including the Ode to Milan Castello Necklace, a bold collar design featuring rubellites and diamonds, and the Ode to Milan Castello Ring, featuring a rhodolite garnet and diamonds, as well as simple stud earrings, while her make-up featured a soft smoky eye, nude lip and pink blush.

Before arriving at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, America shared a short behind-the-scenes video on Instagram, showing her getting her hair and skim primed, while her stylist Karla Welch shared her own video of them putting the 'Ugly Betty' star's look together.

She captioned her post: "We thought we'd save the pink for last!"

America had previously admitted being nominated for an Oscar was a "dream come true".

She told Entertainment Weekly: "It's so surreal and a dream come true for me.

"I can so viscerally remember being a kid watching the Academy Awards and watching Halle Berry win, watching Julia Roberts win, and just dreaming one day that I would be in that room."
