Halle Berry at the CDG Awards The red carpet can be a fashion war zone, but when it comes to the big and small screen, dressing is an art — as evidenced at the 13th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards on  Tuesday night in Beverly Hills.

Costume designers and their glamorous celebrity fans packed the Beverly Hilton, where eyes were drawn to Demi Moore in a simple but chic Vivienne Westwood blue creation. Husband Ashton Kutcher was the perfect escort, on hand to introduce a reel highlighting the career of Julie Weiss, who nabbed the Disaronno Award for career achievement.

The prize was presented to Weiss ("American Beauty," "No Strings Attached") by A-listers Robert Duvall, Billy Bob Thornton and Diane Lane, looking Old Hollywood and sporting a serious hair tuck.  Demi Moore at the CDG Awards

While Weiss got the biggest accolade, Halle Berry stole the show in a brilliant red Elie Saab gown, receiving the Lacoste Spotlight Award, presented by Samuel L. Jackson.

Despite some Rodarte drama, a gracious Amy Wescott nabbed the trophy for excellence in contemporary film for "Black Swan," while "Glee" got a nod for its duds courtesy of costume designer Lou Eyrich. Click the pic of Westcott and Kristin Davis, above, for more photos from the event.

The Ministry must admit a minor obsession with fashion host Louise Roe, a knockout in a psychedelic constructed print dress from Manish Arora, who was herself excited over sightings that included Ginnifer Goodwin, Claire Danes and a still-stunning Holland Taylor.

Representing the boys were "White Collar" cutie Matt Bomer, "The Twilight Saga" star Kellan Lutz, Bill Maher and Old Spice's resident gentleman Isaiah Mustafa
