The Oscars are fast approaching and many of Hollywood's leading ladies will be garnering dresses fresh off the runways of New York, London and Milan. New York had a plethora of swoon worthy, dazzling gowns, but will they fit the fashion bill for Hollywood's biggest night? Here are a few choice's I think will be New York Fashion Week's best bet for dresses that will grace Oscar's red carpet.
Firstly, Marchesa will definitely be represented on Oscar Night. Naomi Watts and Amy Adams, whom are both nominated, are huge fans of the label's frothy gowns. Remember that guy "Harvey," who Jennifer Lawrence keeps mentioning in her award season acceptance speeches? She's talking about Harvey Weinstein, the executive producer of the Silver Linings Playbook ,who just happens to be married to Georgina Chapman, co-designer for Marchesa. I honestly don't think that Jennifer will be wearing Marchesa, I am sure she has to wear Dior because of her spokesmodel gig. Hopefully, Raf Simons has been constructing something custom fabulous for Jennifer, because so far nothing she has worn on the red carpet this season has been wow-worthy.
Best Bet - Amy Adams in this gorgeous burgundy and gold embroidered gown.
Then we have Zac Posen, whose construction technique is absolute perfection. His dresses fit like gloves on stars like Amanda Seyfried, Glenn Close and Eva Longoria. Amanda Seyfried could wear a Zac Posen gown again, like she did for the SAG Awards, which was a much buzzed about style moment. However, I think she will opt for one of her favorite go-to designers, Prabal Gurung or Valentino.
Best Bet - Naomi Watts, I think this strapless midnight navy blue, column gown would look gorgeous on The Impossible star.
Reem Acra showed an intensely beautiful and dramatically edgy collection for fall this year. I would love to see someone wear one of these designs on the red carpet. Olivia Wilde, Isla Fisher and Carrie Underwood have been spotted in Acra's gorgeous gowns. No nominated actresses are known fans or clients of the label, but maybe someone's stylist will reach out and grab one of these gowns for a Oscar night.
Best Bet - Presenters, Halle Berry or Catheine Zeta Jones, who are faithful fans of the label. I am going out on a limb and hoping that Anne Hathaway will walk the red carpet in this sleeveless black ballgown featuring red embroidery on the bodice and skirt. I think she would be a knockout with her short-cropped hairstyle and a red lip. I like the edgy mesh top, but an underlay or paneling would need to be added to the chest exposing bodice. This is obviously my dark horse pick. What do you think?
