So we’ve picked out the dresses we want the nominees to wear–Best Actress & Best Supporting Actress–and ignored what they’ll probably wear, because that’s where it gets boring. We’ve mixed it up with long and short and we hope that whichever look materializes works better than Sandra Bullock’s Bottega moment.
We’ve left out Gabourey Sibide because Marchesa’s already announced they’re making her dress (and based on their most recent collection it’ll be amazing). And we’ve added our Kate Winslet dream outfit at left, because a) she’ll be presenting and b) who needs pants?
The rest of our pics, after the jump!
We weren’t even looking for dresses for Helen Mirren, but this look from Marc AW10 is perfect.
We’re with Anna on this one, hoping Carey Mulligan goes short. We’d love to see her in a McQueen, otherwise this fluffy Marchesa from their AW10 collection demands a pixie cut.
As great as Meryl Streep looks in color, this black and white Armani Privé sheath screams her name.
This Prada might be a bit demure for Penelope Cruz, but that’s not always bad. (And while we’re on the subject, Nine might’ve been disappointing, but Marion Cotillard was robbed of an Oscar nomination.)
Someone has to wear this Chanel, we vote for Vera Farmiga.
Maggie Gyllenhaal should go short and not frumpy. See Marchesa Aw10. And we’d recommend 6″ heels and hair heaped on top of her head.
If we went from Twilight B-list to George Clooney A-list and ended up with our first Oscar nomination, Dior Couture would be an obvious choice.
This Rodarte would look great on Monique, especially with electric blue shoes.
