The 85th Academy Awards promises to be an elegant affair, with glamorous celebrities, fashionable frocks, and priceless jewelry promenading down the large red carpet outside the Dolby Theatre, so why would the winner's names be printed on just any old piece of paper?

Designed by Marc Friedland, and first used during the 2011 ceremony, as well as in 2012, the envelopes are handcrafted from a high-gloss, iridescent metallic gold paper stock, with a red lacquered lining featuring the Oscar statue hand-stamped in satin gold leaf.

The 85th Annual Academy Awards will be handed out in a live telecast ceremony held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on February 24th.
