It’s not unusual to see dresses at award shows fresh off the runway. After all, top stylists are front row fixtures at every major designer show and with no other big red carpet spectacle on the horizon other than The Oscars, we’re going to venture a guess that a couple of the standout dresses from New York Fashion Week will appear on the red carpet this Sunday. At least, here’s hoping.
Below are the dresses we’d fancy seeing tomorrow night and who we hope to see them on…
Designer: Bibhu Mohapatra
Who will wear it: Rosamund Pike
Why: This Bibhu Mohapatra dress is all the rights amount of cool, as is this year’s favorite villain, Ms. Gone Girl herself.
Designer: Carolina Herrera
Who will wear it: Reece Witherspoon
Why: This modern princess piece needs to make an appearance immediately and Reece would rock this flawlessly. Hello, Cinderella!
Who will wear it: Marion Cotillard
Why: Because we think Marion is overdue a red moment and this Marchesa dress is one of the standouts for Fall 2015.
Who will wear it: Keira Knightly
Why: Because Delpozo is so good it makes us cry. Kind of like Keira…
Designer: Christian Siriano
Who will wear it: Felicity Jones
Why: There’s something so timeless and romantic about Felicity. The same can be said about this Christian Siriano dress.
Designer: Peter Copping for Oscar de la Renta
Who would wear it: Jessica Chastain
Why: Because this blue against her red hair are a match made in award show heaven.
Designer: Jenny Packham
Who would wear it: Laura Dern
Why: With a body as lean and tall as Laura’s, she can do no wrong. We think this bronze Jenny Packham dress would look like heaven on her.
Designer: Naeem Khan
Who will wear it: Julianne Moore
Why: Everyone expects Julianne to show up wearing either black, green or maybe a deep blue on the red carpet. Our guess is that she will surprise us all and go a bit more pale this year.
Designer: Zac Posen
Who will wear it: Lupita Nyong’o
Why: Lupita can pull off just about anything under the sun, and it would make us SO happy to see her in the most talked about dress this New York Fashion Week.
Designer: Rosie Assoulin
Who will wear it: Emma Stone
Why: Is it casual for the Oscars? Yes. But hear us out: Emma is no stranger to casual attire during award season (ie: the pantsuit from this year’s Golden Globes.) So while this is definitely a long shot, we think Emma would knock this Rosie number out of the park if styled correctly. Some ruby accessories, a fierce pump and a stunning up-do and everyone will forget the short hemline.
