When we found out that Ellen DeGeneres would be hosting the Oscars, we first got excited thinking of all the good celebrity fodder for her jokes, and then we moved onto thinking about what she should wear. We know that PEOPLE’s current covergirl will wear a variety of suits and tuxedos, so we decided to make her job a bit easier and select three looks from Fashion Week for her to consider.
Probably our favorite is this edgy Saint Laurent design (top left). We love the classic white ruffle shirt and the bowtie. And the longer jacket makes it feel a bit more formal, perfect for her opening act. Next, the gray Ralph Lauren number feels like something the TV host would be comfortable in and would look great with her favorite sneakers. (Plus, she totally looks awesome in gray!) Of course, we know DeGeneres would put a crisp shirt underneath — we’re not expecting her to pull a Cara Delevingne or Suki Waterhouse with the whole no-bra-under-blazer trend! Lastly, we selected a totally out-of-the-box Prabal Gurung design for the star. We love the black-and-white combo on the blazer, and we think she can pull off anything. Prove us right, Ellen!
Regardless of what she wears, DeGeneres is totally prepared for her hosting gig. “I thought, Why not challenge myself? I’m comfortable right now and it’s never good to be comfortable as a performer,” she tells PEOPLE. “Hosting the Oscars is pretty much the scariest thing you can do. To me, this is right up there with bungee jumping!”
