Oscar dress predictions: just three days to go!

20 February 2009


It's only three days to go until the Oscar awards ceremony on Sunday night, and so even though London Fashion Week will still be in full swing, we're thinking all eyes will be on only one thing: red-carpet dresses! Leading the pack is Brit actress-du-decade Kate Winslet, but since she's fallen into the habitual curve-hugging LBD rut, we think it's much more exciting to think about Etro-loving Marisa Tomei, Slumdog's star-that-can-do-no-wrong Freida Pinto and Rachel Zoe's new project, Anne Hathaway. Plus Meryl ‘Mezza' Streep seems to have started recycling 20-year-old Armani pieces to wear down the red carpet, so there's no way we can predict what she'll be wearing without taking a sneaky peek into her wardrobe. So on to the predictions... And just an early heads-up – we'll be live-blogging about the red carpet from 11pm London time, PLUS our Grazia newshound is out in LA Twittering every fashion move she sees!

We love Marisa's quirky red-carpet style, especially since she seems to look utterly divine in every dress she wears. Given the success of her BAFTA Etro ensemble, we'd love to see her continue on her fashwan rampage in this divine piece from Temperley London's A/W '09 collection. We won't be too cross if she decides against the headpiece though...

freida pinto

Freida Pinto is seriously having a moment right now, and since she's been dressed by everyone from Chanel to Oscar de la Renta we're pretty sure she'll be working a pretty big name down the red carpet on Sunday. Rumours have it she's considering Matthew Williamson, but we'd love her to wear Marchesa. Not only is it one of her favourite labels, but we reckon every single piece from their new collection shown in NY this week is more than Oscar-worthy...

anne hathaway

Rumour has it that Badgley Mischka have confirmed they will be dressing one of the Best Actress nominees, which means (realistically) it's between Anne, Ange and Melissa Leo. And since Miss Hathaway has taken on Hollywood's fave stylist Rachel Zoe, we reckon she could steal the show in this gorgeous strapless gown from the label's S/S '09 collection...
