A bit of a different post from me. But first I would just like to say I've been tinkering around a little bit with my blog, and I now have a title header and some new little details. What do you think? Now to the point of this post: for quite a few years now, I have been a die-hard Oscar fan (I blame my mother). I've always been fascinated with the show, but in the recent years I've become much more excited about what everyone is going to wear. This year, I decided at making a stab at trying to predict what everyone (and by everyone, I mean the female nominees and some other presenters) is going to wear. Here we go:
Best Actress in a Leading Role
Julianne Moore - Marchesa Pre-Fall 2015
Julianne Moore is in lead for this award, so I think she needs something classic. She's worn lots of colors so far this awards season, but this color she has yet to wear (it would also look great with her hair color).
Reese Witherspoon - Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2015
Reese Witherspoon is your all American classic girl. Even though Oscar de la Renta isn't an American brand, it's always so classic. Also, I believe that this was the final collection designed by Oscar before his passing, so someone just has to wear a dress from this collection.
Felicity Jones - Elie Saab Couture Spring 2015
Isn't this dress just gorgeous? Since this is Felicity's first Academy Awards, I think she'll go all out by wearing this gorgeous, retro glamour, couture gown.
Marion Cotillard - Dior Couture Spring 2015
Everyone knows that Marion's going to wear Dior, so I think if this gown is made to be full length, it will be perfect for the Oscars.
Rosamund Pike - Zuhair Murad Pre-Fall 2015
So far this awards season, Rosamund has worn either black or white. I think for the Oscars she should mix the two colors and wear one of these for the awards. I love these two dresses; my favorite is the one on the left, but I think the one on the right is more appropriate for the Oscars.
Best Actress in a Supporting Role
Patricia Arquette - Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2015
This dress is great for Patricia because she loves her jewel tones and her curves. This dress brings out both of those things.
Emma Stone - Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2015 (left) Christian Siriano Fall 2015 (right)
Emma has been the risk taker of the season. I would love, love, love to see her in a full length/lined version of this Dolce dress, however I think this Christian Siriano gown is more appropriate for the Oscars but still has the edge that Emma's known for.
Keira Knightley - Chanel Couture Spring 2015 (left) Roksanda Pre-Fall 2015 (right)
Because Keira is pregnant this season, it was a bit harder to find a dress that I think will suit her for the Oscars. Knowing that she does have a contract with Chanel, I think the pink gown on the left would a good prediction. But I also found this Roksanda gown that I know would look amazing on her; and, knowing that Keira's British, Roksanda is a good London based brand.
Laura Dern - Alberta Ferretti Pre-Fall 2015
Laura Dern doesn't make a ton of appearances at awards shows, so I really have no idea what her style is. I felt that this dress is classic but also age appropriate.
Meryl Streep - Carolina Herrera Resort 2015 (left) Lanvin Pre-Fall 2015 (right)
Meryl, Meryl, Meryl. How many times has she been nominated? The Herrera gown on the left is rather casual, but she's been to the Oscars enough. I also picked this Lanvin gown because she's worn Lanvin to the last three ceremonies, so clearly she's a fan.
Lupita N'yongo - Pamella Roland Resort 2015
Lupita: another fashion maven. I picked this because, first of all it's to die for, but mainly because Lupita really hasn't worn this shape or color yet.
Cate Blanchett - Roland Mouret Pre-Fall 2015 (left) Balmain Spring 2015 (right)
Finally we have Ms. Cate Blanchett. She's another one known to take risks. This Roland Mouret would be pretty edgy for most, but for Cate it's really just another dress that she could rock any day. This is why I am wishing for her to wear this amazing Balmain dress. No one else will be wearing anything like this, and since she's not a nominee, she will completely stand out.
I hope you liked this post! Happy Oscars!
