New York Fashion Week + 2012 Oscar Fashion Predictions

Happy Monday!

I was looking at all the gorgeous new designs from New York Fashion Week when I came across www.fabsugar.com's list of the best dresses from both top and up-and-coming designers who showed off their collections last week. 

FabSugar also named who they think should wear those beautiful creations on the red carpet... to make it even more fun, let's see if the following celebrities will wear something similar on Sunday for the 2012 Academy Awards! :)

1. Designer: Ralph Lauren
Who should wear it: Viola Davis
(Best Actress Nominee for The Help. The Help is also up for Best Picture.)

Ralph Lauren

Viola Davis looks great in bold colors and one-shoulder gowns.

2. Designer: Ralph Lauren
Who should wear it: Angelina Jolie
(Presenter. Brad Pitt is a Best Actor Nominee for Moneyball. Moneyball and The Tree Of Life are both up for Best Picture.)

Ralph Lauren

Angelina Jolie often opts for simple and understated (but elegant) dresses -- this Ralph Lauren dress is simple at first look, but its beading gives off a vintage glamour vibe.

3. Designer: Marchesa
Who should wear it: Rooney Mara
(Best Actress Nominee for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.)

I really hope Rooney wears something bright and colorful on Sunday... but I have to admit, she does the "dark and edgy" look well.

4. Designer: Lela Rose
Who should wear it: Shailene Woodley
(The Descendants is nominated for Best Picture.)

Lela Rose

Not gonna lie, I was sad when I found out Shailene wasn't nominated for Best Supporting Actress, but oh well, hopefully she'll have other opportunities to show off her talent.

And I hope she attends the Academy Awards on Sunday -- she's quickly becoming a red carpet favorite and I am loving her feminine style.

5. Designer: Prabal Gurung
Who should wear it: Michelle Williams
(Best Actress Nominee for My Week With Marilyn.)

Prabal Gurung

Michelle Williams is known for her simple and no-nonsense style.
This dress is so her, but for the Oscars, I hope she goes for a floor-length version.

6. Designer: Carolina Herrera
Who should wear it: Meryl Streep
(Best Actress Nominee for The Iron Lady.)

Carolina Herrera

Sophisticated and classic = perfect for this brilliant actress!

7. Designer: Naeem Khan
Who should wear it: Bérénice Bejo
(Best Supporting Actress Nominee for The Artist. The Artist is also up for Best Picture.)

Naeem Khan

The Artist star is described as "elegant, feminine, and glamorous", and those words describe this gold lace dress perfectly.

8. Designer: Jason Wu
Who should wear it: Emma Stone
(Presenter. The Help is nominated for Best Picture.)

Jason Wu

Emma Stone has perfected the art of combining gorgeous colors on the red carpet -- I think she's gonna look great in this Jason Wu creation.

9. Designer: Zac Posen
Who should wear it: Jessica Chastain
(Best Supporting Actress Nominee for The Help. The Help and The Tree Of Life are both nominated for Best Picture.)

Zac Posen

Jessica Chastain has the same hair color and complexion as the model... the dress looks fab on the model, so we can be sure that the first-time Oscar nominee will look amazing in it too.

10. Designer: Ralph Lauren
Who should wear it: Jennifer Lopez
(Presenter)

Ralph Lauren

Who else can pull off this over-the-top gold ostrich cape but Jennifer Lopez?

  3. I love all of your choices! If Jennifer Lopez wears that last one, she will totally steal the show! I hope Meryl Streep wears the Herrera dress or something like it, because she always looks so frumpy, and this would be a little less old lady. xx
