10 Dresses We Want to See on the Oscars Red Carpet

You might think that being an A-lister is all red carpets and amazing dresses (it basically is), but the Oscars is one of the few opportunities for stars to really wear a gown that puts all their others to shame. It’s where you leave your security blankets behind, and step into something that’ll make headlines.

This year’s award season red carpet circuit has been relatively tame, which is why we’re hoping everyone has saved their best ‘til last for the 88th Academy Awards on February 28.

Keep scrolling to see the gowns we hope land on the red carpet, and who we want to wear each one.

WHO: Brie Larson

WHY: This is the first-time Academy Award nominee's chance to really become a household name. The right fashion choice (read: bold) can sometimes be all it takes.

WHO: Kate Bosworth

WHY: Kate has an otherworldly vibe about her, which perfectly captures the vibe of this dress.

WHO: Lady Gaga

WHY: With her porcelain skin, Lady Gaga would make this blush, spaghetti strap slip dress stand out. Plus, have you ever seen her in anything like this before?

WHO: Rooney Mara

WHY: Rooney's always in black or blush lacey designs, so it would be interesting to see her slip into some colour and something really different.

WHO: Kate Hudson

WHY: Red often is a no-go on the red carpet (for fear of blending in or clashing) but how could you blend in, in this design? Every red carpet needs the WOW moment, and this is it.

WHO: Kirsten Dunst

WHY: Kirsten has the cool-girl vibes needed to pull this off. She'll wear the dress, rather than the other way around.

WHO: Jennifer Lawrence

WHY: So far, we've expected more from Jennifer Lawrence's red carpet circuit, she always looks amazing, but she's played it pretty safe compared to what we're used to. This will more than make up for it.

WHO: Alicia Vikander
