The Les Mis is BFFs with Valentino Garavani, so expect to see her in one of his interesting creations. And since she’s yet to do red this awards season, we think now’s the perfect time to break out the bold hue.

It’s no surprise the of Miss Dior often opts for Christian Dior’s designs. And considering her gowns have only gotten more and more dramatic, no one would be shocked if she went all-out in this strapless number (sans bonnet, of course).

Despite a recent departure, the (nominated for the theme song for Skyfall) tends to stick to high-necked and black. It’s as if this Giambattista Valli dress were made for “Someone Like You,” Adele.

proved she’s into plunging and Jessica Chastain proved redheads can do red, so we see no reason why The Master actress shouldn’t slip into this Carolina Herrera stunner (then lend it to us when she’s done!).

She’s new to big awards shows, but has already shown a penchant for gowns that have a touch of romance and a lot of wow factor. Zac Posen’s strapless lilac design has both in spades.

As soon as we saw this purple peplum jaw-dropper come down the Oscar de la Renta runway, we knew we’d found the nominee’s Oscars dress. It’s the one shade she hasn’t tried, and the neckline is just how Jessica likes ‘em: unique.

Perhaps this is more wishful thinking (the world needs to see more of those perfect abs, Kerry!), but we would love it if the Django Unchained star hit the red carpet in this sexy white dress envisioned by designer Pamella Roland.

She’s done everything from sequins to sweetheart, off-the-shoulder to off-the-charts, but based on recent choices, the most likely scenario is that goes for something like this long-sleeved, body-con Monique Lhullier gown. Not sold? This will convince you: it’s backless.
