Chanel, Valentino, and Dior presented their Couture Spring 2016 collections in Paris. And we’re hoping that the best actresses of the year were paying attention, and will chose their gowns for the SAG awards from the lacy, shiny new options. Here, our picks for what Brie Larson, Cate Blanchett, Alicia Vikander and more should wear tonight. Cate Blanchett in Givenchy
The Carol actress is a fan of the brand–and one of the few stars bold enough to wear an unusual color on the red carpet. Photo courtesy of the brand.
Brie Larson in Chanel
As demonstrated by
her winning look at the Golden Globes, the Room actress loves a halter neck and a sparkle. This Chanel number is glamorous, and the length is especially good for an awards show that doesn’t require a full-length gown. Photo courtesy of the brand. Rooney Mara in Valentino
This dramatic dress looks like it was made for the Carol actress. All she needs is a dark lip and slicked back hair, and she’s got a winning look. Photo courtesy of the brand.
Saoirse Ronan in Giambattista Valli
There were a lot of youthful, short options from the Couture Spring 2016 collections–but none better for the Brooklyn actress than this Giambattista Valli Couture frock. Ronan has tried this silhouette before with great success, as it shows off her legs. Photo courtesy of the brand.
Alicia Vikander in Christian Dior
The Danish Girl actress has been wearing
custom Louis Vuitton for many of her recent appearances, but we’re hoping she tries this fresh-off-the-runway Christian Dior Couture look. The sheer lace layered over a white skirt is refreshing take on red carpet dressing. Photo courtesy of the brand. Helen Mirren in Jean Paul Gaultier
The grande dame would stun in this form-fitting black number. Perhaps with alternate hair and makeup. Photo courtesy of the brand.
