It’s less than a week until the 2016 Academy Awards, which means we’re waiting with anticipation to see what Hollywood’s biggest stars will wear. We’re pulling for appearances from fashion week’s most talked-about designers, along with red carpet classics. Taking into consideration each star’s signature look, we’re sharing what we’d love to see them wear come Sunday. We’re expecting over-the-top tulle, meticulous embellishments, and a look or two destined to go down in history.
Read on to see our picks, and then shop gowns worthy of your next moment in the spotlight!
After her romantic Valentino dress at the Golden Globes, we’re hoping Rooney goes for something moody and dramatic, like this sheer Alexander McQueen dress straight off the F/W 16 runway.
The feminine details, youthful mixed prints, and unstuffy elegance of this stunning S/S 16 Giambattista Valli haute couture gown make it our ideal choice for Ronan.
After her showstopping floral Lanvin gown at the Golden Globes, we’re anticipating another princess moment for McAdams. This embellished Marchesa dress from the Pre-Fall 16 collection mixes soft elegance with rich, eye-catching details worthy of the red carpet.
When we saw this Prabal Gurung dress come down the runway for F/W 16 , we instantly knew it would be a perfect pick for Robbie. From the shimmering details to the slinky shape, the style is in line with what we’ve seen her wear before, but still feels totally fresh.
Washington loves to take risks with bold colors and fun textures, which is why we love this jewel-toned S/S 16 Armani Privé couture dress for her come Sunday.
Kate tends to keep her red carpet choices simple and sleek, and this pale pink Badgley Mischka look from the line's Resort 16 collection fits the bill. Paired with dazzling drop earrings, this formfitting dress is a winner in our books.
Moore has a list of major designers (like Tom Ford and Chanel) in her rotation and sticks to them. This shimmering Givenchy gown fits right into her high-fashion formula and would make for an unforgettable Oscars look.
Jennifer Lawrence is a Dior darling, and while she’ll most likely arrive in a custom design, we’re hoping her look is inspired by the fashion house’s latest collection. We’d love to see details like the unusual neckline and elegant skirting of this dress from the S/S 16 couture show.
As both a designer and Lady Gaga’s stylist, Brandon Maxwell is a likely choice for the singer come the big day. While it’s definitely a risk, we envision Gaga forgoing a more traditional gown for this stunning look from his F/W 16 collection.
Cate isn’t afraid to experiment on the red carpet, and after her fringed Givenchy look at the Golden Globes, we can imagine her going in a new direction. We think this romantic yet fashion-forward Valentino look would make for a major fashion moment.
Brie’s style is adventurous, and for the Oscars, we’re hoping she’ll go all out and opt for this Chanel dress from the S/S 16 haute couture runway. Between the cutouts and the shimmering details, it touches on a few trends she’s tried before but still feels totally new.
While it’s a bit edgier than we’d normally see at the Oscars, the details on this Louis Vuitton S/S 16 dress are right up Vikander’s alley. A custom gown with a similar asymmetrical neckline would be a killer red carpet moment for the star.
