What They Should Be Wearing To The Oscars

Can you believe that Academy Awards are on tomorrow night? Typically I watch them...and I probably will this year too (or at least a little bit of it). I do have a few gripes about the Oscars:

1) They last FOREVER...
2) I haven't seen any of the movies.
3) It's on when one of my favorite shows is on (Girls).
4) The speeches are boring.
5) Did I say it lasts forever???

The part of this award show that is my favorite starts before the actual show. I'm talking about the red carpet! Isn't that the real reason we all tune in anyway? You gotta see the dresses!

I thought it would be fun to pick dresses that I feel the Hollywood starlets should be wearing...and then tune in to see if I'm right. Here are my picks for this year:

Anne Hathaway in Christian Dior Spring 2013 Couture

Amy Adams in Valentino Spring 2013 Couture

Jennifer Lawrence in Oscar de la Renta Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear

Jessica Chastain in Giambattista Valli Spring 2013 Couture

Naomi Watts in Jenny Packham Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear

What do you think of my dress picks? I am seriously in love with that bright pink Oscar de la Renta dress...and would be so happy if anyone would wear it there. What do you think the stars should be wearing on their big night???

Will you be watching the awards or just the red carpet?

I didn't watch this year - I figured I'll be seeing the dresses and everything being covered via magazine and blog for the next 3 weeks, so I'll be able to stay on point. Plus, I can't justify not watching The Walking Dead to find out who won best technical supporting whatever.
Your picks are gorgeous though - I thought Kerry Washington was another clear front runner for best dressed :)

Diane, I always love to see what you chose because it's ALWAYS better than what reality turns out to be -- though you were kinda of close with Naomi's sequined/clean-lined choice!
And yes - way too long. I haven't watched in years because of that. The red carpet bit is my favorite.
Hope you had fun watching the bit you did!
