In the days leading up to the Academy Awards, a plethora of stunning evening gowns are being seen at the Fall/Winter shows—many of which go on to grace the red carpet. Here, we've matched the key Oscar attendants with their winning runway looks.
Nominated for Best Actress (Room)
Brie larson’s recent red carpet appearance (in cut-outs and sequins at the Golden Globes) was knock-out sexy—if anyone could pull off Cushie’s plunging neckline with stylish aplomb, it’s her.
Nominated for Best Supporting Actress (Carol)
If Rooney Mara had a red carpet rule book, the first chapter would be a lesson on monochrome. Rarely dressed in anything else, a floor-length lace gown from Rodarte—wistfully romantic with a touch of the macabre—would suit the actor perfectly.
Nominated for Best Actress (Joy)
America’s sweetheart had her “Oscar moment” back in 2013 when she fell (beautifully, it must be said) on her way to collect her award for Best Actress. But who says she can’t have a second in Naeem Khan’s golden gown?
Nominated for Best Actress (The Danish Girl)
Our current style crush, the Swedish actor Alicia Vikander is also a classically trained ballerina. Just think how well J. Mendel’s bustier gown would frame her figure in graceful folds of gunmetal gray.
Nominated for Best Actress (Spotlight)
Florals and color are favored by the Candian actor, but we’d love to see her in something theatrical for her first Academy Award nomination. Marchesa, the label designed by Georgina Chapman (wife of producer-giant Harvey Weinstein) nails red-carpet drama with black tulle and floral appliqué.
Nominated for Best Actress (45 Years)
Past appearances suggest the iconic actor is not inclined to stray from her preference for black tailoring—no bad thing: we deem Rampling the ideal woman to showcase just how fabulous Brandon Maxwell’s modern suiting can be.
