Oscars Predictions: What Might They Wear?

The Academy Awards may be the biggest night in Hollywood, but next to the MET Gala, it’s also the biggest red carpet event of the year. Of course we care about the films, but what will the actresses wear? Guessing has gotten the best of us and so we’ve compiled a list of dress predictions for this year’s Oscar red caper elite.

Jennifer Lawrence 
Jennifer Lawrence will undoubtedly wear Dior – she’s been the face of the French label for nearly a year, wearing the famous French label on every red carpet occasion. Her 2013 Oscar Dior gown was stunning and elaborate, so we thought maybe a shorter, simpler piece would be suitable for the 23-year-old. Plus, this one look easier to move around in.

Amy Adams
Amy Adams and a plunging neckline are a dynamic duo. The American Hustle star has been staying true to her character from the Oscar-nominated film – this minimalistic Badgley Mischka piece, with its plunging neckline, would look stunning on Adams.

Cate Blanchett
Zac Posen is the ultimate red carpet designer and Cate Blanchett is the ultimate fashion-forward red carpet actress. Put these two together and its a fashion moment made in heaven.

Lupita Nyong’o
Lupita Nyong’o has quickly become a red carpet favourite with her striking and sleek ensembles. This Giambattista Valli Spring 2014 Haute Couture gown is one we’d love to see Nyong’o rock at the Oscar’s this year.

Sandra Bullock
Sandra Bullock’s red carpet looks can be hit-or-miss but, nominated for best actress, girl has got to take this dress pick seriously.This lace Naeem Khan dress would be so flattering and sophisticated, and would totally flatter her super-fit body.

Anne Hathaway
This Chanel dress would look good on so many women, but we’d love to see it on Anne Hathaway. Its iridescence is extraordinary, and it’s playful and elegant at the same time.

Charlize Theron
Charlize Theron wore a killer white dress last year, and so we want to see her in white again, but this time in this Elie Saab beauty. It’s the epitome of minimalism which is the look Theron evidently goes for.

Emma Watson
This Sunday, Emma Watson will lose her Oscar red carpet virginity (yay!). We all know she loves to play with geometric shapes and colour-blocking on the red carpet, so we’re hoping she’ll make a daring choice. This Oscar de la Renta frock would be the perfect pick for the British beauty–check out the embroidery on this number. J’adore.

Angelina Jolie
Someone needs to show up in a suit this year. It’s bold and empowering so we think Angelina Jolie should totally shock-and-rock in this sleek Saint Laurent ensemble.

Jessica Biel
A daring choice but if anyone can pull this one off, it’s Jessica Biel. Her long model-esque figure would fit this Jason Wu gown like a glove.
