Call the ‘sitter, it’s Hollywood’s biggest night out!
Some of our favorite celebrity parents attended the 2013 Academy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (February 24). From mom-of-three Reese Witherspoon, to power couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, to parents-to-be Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum, let’s look at the best – and worst – dressed of the evening.
Parents-to-be Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum rocked the red carpet on Hollywood’s biggest night. Jenna dressed her baby bump in a body-hugging black lace Rachel Roy gown with cap sleeves and a deep V-neck.
The mom-to-be accessorized with one-of-a-kind Irene Neuwirth earrings and Christian Louboutin’s Aida clutch in nude satin.
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck – parents to daughters Violet, 7, and Seraphina, 4, and son Samuel, 1 on Wednesday – looked every bit the glam Hollywood couple.
Walking the red carpet in style, Jennifer looked stunning in a custom Gucci gown paired with Neil Lane jewels and a Roger Vivier clutch. And Ben didn’t look too shabby in his dapper tuxedo, accessorized with his shiny trophy!
Helen Hunt went eco-chic in an H&M couture midnight blue gown in silk satin. The actress – who is mom to 8-year-old daughter Makena – debuted H&M’s eco-friendly initiative with the environmental group Global Green.
Going equal parts glam and down-to-earth, Helen paired the strapless gown with $700,000 worth of jewels by Martin Katz which were sewn right into the dress.

Note: GoodyBlog interviewed Jennifer before the tragic deaths of her mother, brother, and nephew last week. All of us here at Parents are stunned and saddened by the news and our thoughts are very much with Jennifer and her family during this difficult time.
GoodyBlog recently sat down with Oscar-winning actress and singer Jennifer Hudson in New York City during her promotional tour for her new album, Spotlight, and new movie, The Secret Life of Bees (based on the best-selling novel by Sue Monk Kidd). A buoyant, down-to-earth Jennifer dished about her engagement, family, and critically-acclaimed new artistic projects.
First of all, congratulations on your engagement!
Thank you, thank you! It was on my birthday, actually. It was a huge surprise. I was like, “What’s going on?” [laughs] It was the biggest surprise yet, I have to say.
You’ve got the holy trinity of happiness: an engagement, a record, and a movie [The Secret Life of Bees].
Everything keeps coming like a huge big surprise, one after another. It’s a whirlwind, but they’re all very good surprises.
In your new film The Secret Life of Bees you play the mother figure to Dakota Fanning. You’ve played a mother a few times now.
It’s interesting—I always end up with a little girl to mother, for some odd reason. I play Rosaleen who’s a sort of nanny to Dakota Fanning’s character, Lily, and they have a sisterly bond as well.
Is it a natural instinct for you to play a mother?
Yeah, I guess I have it in me. Like, “Oh, I could do this, I could be a mother.” A fabulous one, though. A fierce, fabulous mom.
Would you like to have a family someday, too?
Oh yeah, no question about it.
Big family? Lots of kids?
Not a lot, but a few. [laughs]
The movie is set in the 60s but there’s sort of a modern message
at the same time that families come in all shapes, sizes, and colors.
It’s definitely about that. That was one of the powerful things
about the film. Once you get to the Boatwright sisters, played by Queen Latifah and Alicia Keys’
characters, and Lily, who’s a white girl with all of these black women
raising her—it wasn’t jaded and taken over by the society of that
time and the customs. It was about love. It wasn’t about race, it
wasn’t about [gender], it was about people loving each other, and what
happens when people come together and love each other for who they are
and put that extra stuff aside. It shouldn’t matter what color you are
or what sex you are or what sex you like, and that’s one of the beautiful
things of the film.
