oscars best actress nominees 2015

The Academy Awards, mostly known as “Oscars”,  is the most watched award show on the planet getting an unbelievable amount of 43 million viewers last year. So it’s no surprise that the who-is-who of Hollywood are putting in a lot of effort to look fabulous on the Oscar’s red carpet. Not only will the celebs be watched on TVs worldwide, but their photos will be in thousands of newspapers, magazines, and shamelessly scrutinising blogs the next day.

The biggest pressure to look perfect is without a doubt felt by the contenders for ‘best actress in a leading role’, so we can only imagine that this year’s nominees Reese Witherspoon, Julianne Moore, Marion Cotillard, Felicity Jones, and Rosamund Pike are having a hard time deciding on a dress for the 22nd of February, the day of the event.

With Haute Couture Fashion Week having just finished and designers most definitely begging the actresses to wear their creations, the options are endless, so we put ourselves in the (expensive) shoes of Reese, Julianne, Marion, Felicity, and Rosamund and made the following predictions for their Oscar outfits:

Reese loves to channel old Hollywood glamour while showing a bit of skin, so this sparkly Zuhair Murad creation might be her choice for the big night.

Julianne Moore often surprises on the red carpet, but always stays elegant. We would love to see her in this dark blue Armani Privée gown.

As the face of Dior, it is very likely Marion Cotillard will opt for a dress from Christian Dior’s latest collection and this pink frock would look amazing on her.

Felicity Jones has had a lot of fun experimenting with different styles on the red carpet this year, so we think she might opt for a showstopper, like this slightly sheer Elie Saab gown.

Lastly, we predict that Rosamund Pike will show of her stunning post-baby body in a sexy Versace dress.
