Oscar Dress Predictions 2016

The day is almost here!  Tomorrow is the Academy Awards, and I'm so excited!  As fun the actual awards are, my favorite part is definitely the red carpet.  The Oscars are when are the biggest designers are worn, and generally it's the best red carpet of the season.  I love trying to predict who and what the stars are going to wear; last year I posted my predictions, and though I didn't get any right, I liked some of my predictions better than what the stars actually wore.  This year I decided to up the ante and attempt to photoshop the dresses onto the stars.  I have never photoshopped before this, so I'm actually surprised that it turned out this well.  Anyway, here are my predictions:

(from left to right)

Brie Larson - Giambattista Valli Spring 2016 Couture
Brie Larson is a shoe-in for the win.  So far this awards seasons she's been trying out my different designers and styles, however one thing that has been in all of her looks is that touch of sexiness.  This Giambattista gown would be perfect because of its classic shape with the sexy slit.

Saoirse Ronan - Schiaparelli Spring 2016 Couture
I love Schiaparelli, and I'm dying to see someone wear it to the Oscars.  When I first saw this gown it took my breath away, and it reminded me of the classicism that Saoirse wore to the Golden Globes.  She's gone a bit edgier with some of her other awards show looks, but I think for the Oscars she'll go back to more classic styles.

Jennifer Lawrence - Christian Dior Spring 2015 Couture
Obviously Jennifer Lawrence is going to wear Dior.  You don't see her as often wearing long sleeves, so I think this gown would look gorgeous on her and break from what she is often seen wearing.

Cate Blanchett - Armani Prive Spring 2016 Couture
Originally I picked this look for Cate, but after looking at her red carpet record I noticed that she almost never wears strapless.  With that in mind, I switched my pick to this one shouldered Armani.  Plus with its 1950s, it's reminiscent of the movie she's nominated for, Carol.

Charlotte Rampling - Balenciaga Resort 2016
I don't know as much about Charlotte Rampling as I do about the other nominees.  However after looking at some of her other red carpet looks, I see that she can definitely rock a suit.  This Balenciaga suit would fit her perfectly, while still being appropriate for the Oscars.

Alicia Vikander - Louis Vuitton Resort 2016
Alicia Vikander is currently Louis Vuitton's star child.  She's worn almost everything from Louis Vuitton for the past awards shows, so it's almost a guarantee that she'll go custom.  That being said, I hope the custom is inspired by this patterned one shoulder.

Kate Winslet - Pamella Roland Fall 2016
I had a tough time picking something for Kate Winslet.  She loves the body conscious mermaid, as she's worn that for every show this season.  But it was also difficult to find something that's clearly different from what she's already worn.  This season, she's yet to wear red, so I think this Pamella Roland would look amazing on her.

Rooney Mara - Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2016
Rooney Mara loves Alexander McQueen; she's worn tons of pieces from the SS16 collection.  She tends to stick to the same color palette of black, white, or blush, but I think gold would be just enough of a departure for her that she would absolutely rock it.

Jennifer Jason Lee - Pamella Roland Pre-Fall 2016
Jennifer Jason Lee was another difficult pick.  She's not a leader in the pack, meaning that she's often not focused on.  When I was looking at her red carpet history, 95% of the time she wears black.  I could very much see in this understated long sleeve gown.  However, I recently saw that she attended the Rodarte show at NYFW and loved it.  So if she were to wear a gown from there, I would guess this.

Rachel McAdams - Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2016
After seeing her gorgeous look at the SAGS, I think she'll go big at the Oscars.  This Carolina Herrera is feminine yet classic, just like Rachel.

Julianne Moore - Roberto Cavalli Pre-Fall 2016
Last year she won the award for Best Actress, which means this year she'll be presenting.  She's worn metallic a lot this season; this long sleeve gown has a touch of metallic sparkle on the cuffs of the sleeves, while still being rather sexy.

Patricia Arquette - Resetta Getty Fall 2016
Last year Patricia Arquette wore Rosetta Getty when she won her Oscar.  This year I suspect she'll be much more casual.  To me, this gown looks amazingly comfortable while still being stylish with its metallic sheen.

Daisy Ridley - Roksanda Pre-Fall 2016
Daisy Ridley is Hollywood's new It-Girl and will be presenting an award this year at the Oscars.  The first time people are invited they tend to either go fun or safe - I'm hoping for the latter.  Roksanda is a fun, London based brand, and with Daisy being British I could definitely see her wearing this brand.  I would guess that if she did wear this, the sleeves would be taken off, but even so it's still so fun!

Those are my predictions.  I really hope this years I get at least one right!
