12 Fresh-Off-the-Runway Looks I'm Dying to See at the Oscars

Not that you needed reminding, but the 2023 Oscars are this Sunday. I'm waiting with bated breath to see what everyone will wear (oh, and I guess to see who will win the awards, too). But back to fashion: So many excellent runway looks are simply begging to grace the red carpet, so I decided to round up some of my favorites below.

I'm not exaggerating when I use the term "fresh off the runway." Three of my favorite picks literally debuted on the runway last night at the star-studded Versace show in Los Angeles. Only time will tell which gowns will make the cut. Scroll down to see my 2023 Oscar red-carpet fashion predictions.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
