My Oscar Red Carpet Predictions

February 20, 2015

Who's excited for the Oscars this weekend!? You know I am! While the nominated films were not the most exciting bunch—overall a bit depressing, even for serious Oscar film standards—you know there will be some major red carpet moments this weekend.

Forget predicting who will win Best Film; I'm predicting what the starlets will be wearing on the red carpet. See my picks below, and don't forget to check back on Monday for my review of all the actual looks. Let's see how close I can get to what the stars end up wearing:

Emma Stone
Zuhair Murad Spring 2015 Couture | Armani Privé Spring 2015 Couture
Emma Stone has been killing it on the red carpet as of late, and I expect the Oscars to be no exception. Her unique looks at the SAG Awards and Golden Globes make me think that we're going to see another unexpected gown this weekend, and I was almost tempted to pick this Oscar de la Renta look (I decided it might be a little too casual for the Academy Awards), but both the dresses I picked would look absolutely lovely on Stone while keeping that one-of-a-kind edge of hers we've grown to love. 

The glittering silver of the Zuhair Murad dress would look fabulous against her creamy skin and fiery red hair, and the slinky look of the Armani Privé dress would fit her tall frame like a glove.

Felicity Jones
Chanel Spring 2015 Couture | Alexis Mabille Spring 2015 Couture
British darling Felicity Jones has shown she can rock a vintage silhouette like no other. She feels a bit like a modern-day Audrey Hepburn, with her rich auburn hair and big doe eyes, and she can dress the part of the Hollywood icon, too. 

A sweet Chanel dress would play up her prim and proper side if she wants to go the safer route, but the stunning red Alexis Mabille gown with cascading cape would look great on Jones, too. It would certainly be a dramatic red carpet look, and I would love to see Jones make a daring statement on Oscars night.

Julianne Moore
Elie Saab Fall 2014 Couture | Zac Posen Fall 2015
Oscars mainstay Julianne Moore is likely to take home the little golden statue this year for her performance in Still Alice, so she should be dressing the part of the winner. Though she will probably wear a custom creation from either Lanvin or Tom Ford, I would love to see her in something along the lines of the two above dresses.

She's known for wearing black gowns on the red carpet, so this bejeweled Elie Saab gown would add some intrigue. If Moore wants to go for color, the oceanic blue of the Zac Posen dress would look great against her red hair, and the velvet bodice and shape would be gorgeous on her.

Keira Knightley
Chanel Pre-Fall 2015 | Chanel Spring 2015 Couture
Keira Knightley will most likely wear Chanel. That's a given. And since she is pregnant, I selected two dresses with looser silhouettes. I could see the pre-fall dress working with some adjustments, but I really think the couture look would look great on Knightley while also showing off her baby bump. 

Reese Witherspoon
Carolina Herrera Fall 2015 | Roksanda Ilincic Pre-Fall 2015
Reese Witherspoon is one actress who can pull off a simple monochromatic gown with ease. She's so naturally gorgeous and doesn't need all the sparkle and poof in order to make a red carpet look pop. I picked two dresses with gorgeous color and in cool shapes.

For a Cinderella moment, the Carolina Herrera would be fabulous, but I know she can also rock the peachy hue of the modern Roksanda Ilincic dress.

Marion Cotillard
Both, Christian Dior Spring 2015 Couture
Like Keira Knightley with Chanel, it is a near given that Marion Cotillard will wear Christian Dior to the Oscars. With both of the dresses I picked, I would expect alterations and edits to be made in order to make either one Academy Awards appropriate, but both dresses would look great on Cotillard. More than likely, she will be wearing a custom creation. Here's hoping it's fabulous!

Rosamund Pike
Reem Acra Pre-Fall 2015 | Donna Karan Fall 2015
Rosamund Pike stunned audiences as the deviously wicked Amy Dunne in this year's Gone Girl, by far one of the most fun movies to get any recognition at the Oscars this year. She's been playing up her character's femme fatale sexiness on the red carpet, and I think she's just the one to make a daring statement on Sunday by showing some skin in a provocative but still classy way. 

A crimson Reem Acra dress with side panels would look absolutely breathtaking on her, but the equally seductive Donna Karan look is more her usual style. I'd be fine with either one.

What are you hoping your favorite celebrities will be wearing on Sunday? Who do you think will take home the big awards?
