|Who will win the big prize? And more importantly, who will be the best dressed?|
I could write a whole article on why Brie Larson will be taking home a little golden man for her role in Room or lament the impending death of "Leo doesn't have an Oscar" jokes (as much as I hate to say it, dude's probably going to finally win an Oscar for The Revenant) but come on, do you really think the awards are the most important part of the Oscars?
Here at the Fashion Barbie, it's all about the red carpet, so in preparation for an exciting weekend of couture and custom gowns worn by the leading ladies of Hollywood, I'm sharing my predictions (and hopeless wishes) for what the nominees will be wearing.
Keep reading to see my picks!
|Alexis Mabille | Reem Acra|
|Carolina Herrera | Naeem Khan|
|Alexis Mabille | Alexander McQueen|
But, if Cate has to wear a more universally-appealing dress, Alexis Mabille has just the thing: a simple blue gown with a trailing train and lace back. It's the kind of sophistication that Blanchett exudes, and I'd be just as happy to see her in a lovely dress like this on the red carpet.
|Carolina Herrera | Jenny Packham|
Jennifer Jason Leigh
|Andrew Gn | Derek Lam|
|Ralph Lauren | Christian Dior|
If Lawrence were to go with another designer, however, I think she could do wonders with this rich velvet Ralph Lauren dress. It's simple columnar shape works with Lawrence's figure, but it's the deep purple hue that will really take people's breathes away.
|Naeem Khan | Marchesa|
|Marchesa | Reem Acra|
|Marchesa | Roksanda|
Also, because Mara has such a distinct style, I could also see her wearing any of the Rodarte gowns from the Fall 2016 collection or any of Gucci's kooky dresses.
|Nina Ricci | Delpozo|
Saoirse Ronan is only nine days older than me (!!!) so she should wear something sweet and youthful. I adore this fifties-style baby blue Nina Ricci dress; with the right jewels it could be a spectacular Cinderella moment dress. But I also think Ronan is the perfect girl to wear a Delpozo gown (seriously, more celebrities should be wearing Delpozo on the red carpet). I want Ronan to look like a 21st-century princess, and I can't wait to see what she wears.
