Reviewing Oscar Nominees’ Award Season Gowns


On Sunday night, millions of people will turn on their TVs to see members of the film industry honored for their craft what all the stars are wearing to the Oscars. By the time the ladies in the Best Actress categories have walked the red carpets at the Golden Globes, SAGs, and BAFTAs, the gown bar has been set very high. Jennifer Lawrence has already worn a trio of magnificent Christian Dior Couture numbers, Helen Hunt has shown up in two very sparkly dresses, and Amy Adams has looked radiant in two variations of lace. But these gowns are like very expensive breadcrumbs, leaving a sartorial trail that could give us a hint of what is to come. Anne Hathaway has worn Burberry, Giambattista Valli, and Chanel, is it finally time to go with her good friend, Valentino? Jessica Chastain's choices have all had an old Hollywood-feel, so fingers crossed for some sparkle? And then there are of course the wild cards, Emmanuelle Riva and Quvenzhané Wallis, who haven't made appearances at these big events, what can we expect from them? Take a look back at what the nominees for Best Supporting Actress and Best Actress have worn so far this awards season, and start placing your bets.
