Oscars 2014: The Gowns We Want To See

The idea for this post came to me out of nowhere, it just popped into my head: the gowns we wish to see on our favorite celebs at this year's Academy Awards.
World famous actors and actresses are about to parade on the red carpet this Sunday on the most important night for the movie industry. This year, I am so excited to see who's gonna win for I've watched many of the movies that are nominated and I'm rooting for a lot of people to win (Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio to name a few).
This post is no gown-prediction kind of post. It's about what I'd like to see on the gorgeous females that are nominated given their taste and style.
I made a little set of paperdolls (which I put together myself - it took forever so if you don't mind, please make a comment to let me know which one is your favorite) and I put a lot of thought into what dress suits which celeb.
Jennifer Lawrence is my favorite young actress. She's a natural beauty, she's down to earth, genuine, spontaneous but also elegant. There is no doubt in my mind that she's gonna go for Dior Couture, since she's the famous house's face but this dress by Stephane Rolland is something I could 100% envision her wear (maybe the fact that there's something very Dior about it).
Lupita Nyong'o is the new thing that has everyone talking in the fashion world. She caught our eye at the Golden Globes, wowed at fashion week and now everyone's out to see what she's going to wear next. I'd love to see her in a beautiful emerald structured gown that will look phenomenal against her complexion and will sit beautifully on her toned body.
Cate Blanchett was my personal favorite at the 2014 Golden Globes. She looked as classy and as refined as ever in Armani. Now I'd like to see her in an amethyst fitted Zuhair Murad floor length gown. She's proven she can work sheer fabrics before so this should be a piece of cake.
Amy Adams is stunning but she has sort of underwhelmed me with some of her previous red carpet choices. I'd love to see her sport a romantic, girly gown that will complement her skin and hair tone. Zuhair Murad does it best.
And now to finish this off, Sandra Bullock (who was really good in Gravity - but I'm not sure if she must win), usually a risk taker, must go for this amazing, embellished Armani Prive dress. No worry about those spaghetti straps - her toned arms put younger women to shame. There's something romantic about this dress, but also something eerie and dark too and I couldn't love it more.


  1. You did a great job with the paper dolls...great selections as well, my favourite has to be Lupita Nyong´o there´s just something about her that´s just amazing. My next favourite is Jennifer Lawrence, love the dress you picked for her.
