Red Carpet Style Predictions

W’s Fashion Market and Accessories Director Karla Martinez imagines the Golden Globe and Oscar nominated actresses in her favorite red carpet worthy looks of the season.

1

These Balenciaga cutout dresses were among my favorite pieces in the Spring/ Summer collections. Marion Cotillard is the perfect French girl to pull these off.

2

Chanel’s silk blouses and long column gowns would bring elegance to the red carpet—simple and classy.

3

Emily Blunt would look stunning in this dress by Carolina Herrera, inspired by a Verdura brooch that Mr. Herrera gave Mrs. Herrera as a gift many years ago.

4

Raf Simons’ Dior collection brings a whole new edge to red-carpet dressing. Jennifer Lawrence should snatch this one up before someone else does!

5

Pucci’s gorgeous dresses tend to be worn by younger actresses, but if you ask me, this goddess gown would be beautiful on Helen Mirren.

6

I would love to see Meryl Streep in this Michael Kors printed ball skirt.

7

When I saw this Monique Lhuillier dress I thought of Sally Field—perfect color.

8

Jessica Chastain is one of my favorite nominees, and she wears color so well. This pink Nina Ricci gown would be beautiful with her strawberry hair.

9

Oscar de la Renta’s bright red dress could be carried off perfectly by Dame Judi Dench.

10

I love this Prabal dress, slightly minimal but body conscious, for Rachel Weisz.

11

I fell in love with this sleek black-tie pantsuit at the Stella McCartney presentation. If anyone can pull it off it is Naomi Watts. I see it with classic Manolo Blahnik satin pumps and great over-size jewels.

12

Rochas is so romantic. This two-tone dress is perfect for Anne Hathaway.

13

Silver and sculptured J Mendel for Claire Danes.

14

Ruffles were so big for Spring and the colors at Gucci were gorgeous. Nicole Kidman would look great in green.
