About this time of day seamstresses are making last minute adjustments to designer gowns, prepping them for their red carpet close ups. And we’re all guessing, what will Natalie Portman wear? Nicole Kidman? Halle Berry? Michelle Williams? And newcomer Jennifer Lawrence? All are nominees for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama. It’s a designer’s dream line up. From Michelle Williams’ ingenue style, to Nicole Kidman’s flawless sophistication, one thing’s for certain, there will be red carpet fireworks, maybe a new designer showcased, and we can’t wait. Designer Elie Saab became an overnight sensation when Berry famously wore his dress to accept her Best Actress Oscar. I asked Sahar Sanjar, founder of the heavy-hitting boutique showroom laChambre PR, where Saab’s collection lives in LA, why his dresses might win top honors tonight. “Mr. Saab creates pieces that literally make people sigh. I have heard it, and am guilty of doing the same. When you put on an Elie Saab dress, you feel as though it were made for you. You have never felt sexier, more sophisticated and confident.” We’re convinced. Let the red carpet games begin!
