Angelina Jolie will take to the 2014 Academy Awards as one of the nights many glamorous presenters. It’s not quite a shock as her long term lover Brad Pitt is nominated as a producer for ’12 Years a Slave,’ and Ange took home the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the 2013 Academy Governors Awards. I figure that for this red carpet that Miss Jolie will don her favorite color, black, but I think that doing so in this strapless Elie Saab Spring 2014 Couture embellished gown that features silver ombre embellishments fading from the bottom. In the last year every single one of Angelina’s red carpet looks, sans one black Michael Kors ensemble, came courtesy of one of 3 designers: Ralph & Russo, Saint Laurent, or Versace. I am hoping she breaks that run come Sundays awards but I am placing a pretty safe bet that she will revert back to one of her 3.
Earlier this month Anna Kendrick was the darling of New York Fashion Week, popping up in the front row of several major red carpet brands like Monique Lhuillier, Reem Acra, and J. Mendel. Despite taking in numerous fantastic gowns that we will undoubtedly take in on Oscar night I have chosen to put Anna in this gold Emilio Pucci Fall 2014 RTW embellished halter gown. I think that if Peter Dundas, the creative director of Emilio Pucci, added a liquid gold fabric underneath this gown as its lining this would make a perfect gown for the 2014 Academy Awards and not just a gown destined for a red carpet premiere or Oscar after-party. A pair of gold simple sandals, a gold Kotur clutch, Anna’s hair worn in loose curls, and some very simple jewels will make this look just that much more perfect for Hollywood’s biggest night.
It was never a surprise to me when the Academy announced that Anne Hathaway would be attending this years Academy Awards as a presenter. As the winner of the Best Supporting Actress award last year, Anne will be on hand to give another worthy winner their statuette. Having traded out longtime stylist, and friend, Rachel Zoe earlier this year for Penny Lovell, who dresses Rose Byrne and Bella Heathcote, I am expecting some major magic come Oscar Sunday. Rachel Zoe never pulls gowns from Elie Saab, sticking to all the really big names to pull for red carpets like Dior, Chanel, Posen, and de la Renta, and Lovell loves herself a major Elie Saab moment. Lovell gave Rose Byrne her now iconic Elie Saab Couture white jumpsuit moment
at the 2012 SAG Awards. I am praying for Anne’s first Elie Saab moment to come this Sunday via this white strapless Elie Saab Spring 2014 Couture completely embellished gown. This is a perfect statement for the Oscar winner, and presenter to make, especially because Anne has 3 movies slated for release this year. A white Edie Parker clutch, a pair of silver sandals, and some bomb ass statement diamonds in her ears and on her wrist will give Annie the moment to make up for her ugly pink Prada disaster last year.
Jennifer Lawrence will not be the only Christian Dior girl that will take to the 2014 Academy Awards red carpet, she will be joined by J’Adore Dior spokesmodel Charlize Theron. For this awards show, unlike for Jennifer, I did look to the Spring 2014 Couture collection. I did not see any major looks for a nominee but I think this red and white completely sequined gown with stylized circular cutouts would be perfect for the Oscar red carpet veteran. Since last years awards Charlize’s hair has grown out from short and boyish to a cute and fun pixie. I think that this dress, accompanied with a red satin box clutch, a pair of red satin sandals, and some very simple diamond earrings will give Charlize that stunning red carpet look that the Oscars red carpet calls for.
And finally for today we have a wish for first time Academy Awards attendee and presenter Emma Watson. Emma has worn nothing but couture this year and why would that stop for Hollywood’s biggest night? At the Golden Globes Emma shocked with a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Dior Couture frock that was a gown in the front and pants in the back and for the Elle Style Awards Emma channeled the 1960s in black and white Giambattista Valli Couture. For the Academy Awards on Sunday night I think that Emma will go for a classic old Hollywood glamour look via this cream beaded Chanel Spring 2014 Couture gown with a deep-v neck. Emma has had her share of Chanel Couture moments on the red carpet and I think that she will wear the brand for her first Oscars. I would keep this look simple with just a pair of gold sandals and very simple vintage jewelry to keep the focus completely on the gown.
