The Academy Awards are fast approaching and all of the stars and their stylists are making the final decisions about what they’ll wear on the red carpet this Sunday. Thing is, we can probably guess what they’ll be wearing. Save for those few well-connected fashion-savvy darlings (Jennifer Lawrence in Dior, Anne Hathaway styled by Rachel Zoe, Naomi Watts who just always looks flawless) we’ll probably see what we always see: Strapless sweet heart necklines; mermaid dresses; champagne hues, et al.
We get it–these silhouettes and colors are universally flattering and therefore safe. But if we had our druthers we’d like to see some risks on the red carpet. Sure, taking a risk is scary, since you could end up on a worst dressed list; but isn’t the worst dressed list better than no list at all?
So here, we humbly submit some styles we hope the stars will avoid on Oscar night. (Don’t worry–we’ve got some ideas for what they should wear coming soon!)
