gowns i hope to see at the oscars.

i love the gathered fabric on this j. mendel gown. not to mention the bodice is amazing. i think this silhouette would be fantastic on kate winslet, perhaps in a color, although kate has proven she can wear pale colors with her light skin tone.
i love this gown for anne hathaway! navy looks amazing on her unbelievable skin. i think this reem acra would be a fun shape for her to try. she has been constantly changing things up this season, but has yet to wear something form fitting and i totally think she needs to show off her newly svelte body. i want her to win so badly and i haven't even seen the movie.

i want penelope cruz to rock this dress so badly!!! this orangey red monique lhuillier would be amazing on her. she has been wearing boring skin hugging gowns lately, but i am eagerly anticipating her return to grand gowns on the red carpet. and yes, it does look a bit like the vintage valentino jennifer garner wore to the oscars in '04, but this gown really is so much more interesting. wear it penelope!!!

amy adams has been consistently fabulous on the red carpet. one of my top picks all season long. i know she seriously loves a demi cup fitted bodice with a full ball gown skirt, preferably with pockets, but i thought the sparkly bodice and swishy column skirt of this badgley mischka would be a departure from her oscar norm, yet still within her comfort zone. 

finally, these are two picks for angelina jolie. i love the sexy rockstar vibe of the carolina herrera. i love angie in black and i can't wait for her to start embracing her sex kitten side again. she has gotten so incredibly skinny lately that the shape of the gown and placement of fabric around the hips would just do amazing things for her curves. i have chosen an alternate just in case she decides to stay "comfortable." i love the goddess flowy-ness of the golden donna karan. and who doesn't love beaded tulle?! i am sure she will look super chic no matter what she wears. i am also sure that she will be avoiding giuliana rancic like the plague. god that interview gave me nightmares. 

i have like 30 more picked out. so perhaps i will post a few more as the awards get closer. don't forget the grammy's and bafta's on feb. 8th.

  1. seriously- love all of your choices and your reasoning behind them. i think you've set the standard pretty high and if they aren't wearing these or something like them, i am going to be disappointed! You'll have to do a side by side comparison as to what they actually wore and what you picked for them. That would be interesting!
