7 Looks We Want to See on the Red Carpet
SANDRA IN CAROLINA HERRERA
JENNIFER IN DIOR HAUTE COUTURE
Predicting that will wear Dior is like predicting the next Pope will be Catholic. And while we think she’ll go custom (the girl has worn practically everything from the collection!), if it’s an off-the-rack situation, we see her in this high-neck white design with a meshlike sheer polka-dot pattern.
AMY IN ELIE SAAB
We’re putting all our money on plunging. She bared her décolletage quite a bit in American Hustle, and hasn’t stopped since. But the major skirt and feminine floral touches on this gown keep it feeling Oscars-classy, not ’70s-disco-silly.
LUPITA IN J.MENDEL
We spent hours poring over colorful dresses to pick the perfect one for fashion darling Nyong’o and we found it: This vibrant one-shoulder creation with a sophisticated cutout. The actress has never shown this kind of skin, but then again, she’s never won an Oscar either – and there’s a first time for everything.
CATE IN ARMANI PRIVé
Glamorous enough for a nominated superstar on the biggest red carpet of the year, but out-there and polarizing enough for risk-taking , this strapless embellished number will get people talking (even if the actress adds a lining as opposed to showing her underwear to the Academy).
MARGOT IN CUSHNIE ET OCHS
If you’ve seen The Wolf of Wall Street, you know Robbie has the assets to pull off this cleavage-flaunting, cutout dress. We could see her losing the sleeves and requesting it in white, though, since her Globes gown was such a winner.
JARED IN SAINT LAURENT
Okay, we know we said we were picking out gowns, but we’d never pass up the opportunity to talk about Leto and his on-point blazer game. We found this hot-off-the-runway gold animal-print topper with black lapels that would be a nice backdrop for his ombré locks (not to mention a golden statue).
