Let's Play Barbie: Oscars 2011 Red Carpet

The Oscars is The Event of all events for actresses (or their stylists) to pull out all the stops and dazzle viewers with world class fashion.  Unfortunately, everyone is afraid of being on worst dressed lists and ends up playing it safe.  But!  What if I could choose what actresses would wear on the red carpet?  Well, I'm glad you asked...


Anne is hosting, which means many costume changes (I hope!).  Her uber important role, coupled with an incredible ability to pull of tricky couture gowns, should result in some stunning fashion moments.  I have an amazing lineup chosen for her.

                    Christian Dior Couture Spring 2011, Rodarte Fall 2011, and Prabal Gurung Fall 2011

Louis Vuitton Spring 2011, Gucci Fall 2011, Atelier Versace Spring 2011, Diane von Furstenberg Fall 2011


Michelle has a penchant for slightly frumpy and overly twee dresses.  She is never going to do straight up  bombshell, and I am ok with that.  Keeping this in mind, I have chosen some modest, yet fabulous, couture options for her. 

                                     Christian Dior Couture Spring 2011, Valentino Couture Spring 2011, Elie Saab Couture Spring 2011


The Best Actress Oscar favorite (or so I hear) needs a fierce maternity gown to live up to her Black Swan role.  These dresses would be perfect for a Black Swan reference, and I think they would work as maternity wear...although I am not an expert in this area.

This is a woman after my own heart, who actually takes risks on the red carpet.  I have decided it is time for her to have a McQueen moment.  She can pull it off, so why not?

Tilda always brings the avant garde to the red carpet.  With her striking features and commanding presence, she can pull off just about anything.

                                Haider Ackerman Spring 2011, Givenchy Couture Spring 2011, and Alexander McQueen Spring 2011


Cate the Great has proven time and time again to have impeccable taste.  She would work these sparkley column gowns to the max.

              Armani Prive Spring 2011, Oscar de la Renta Fall 2011, and Ralph Lauren Fall 2011


There is a 99.9% chance that January Jones will wear Versace, since she is the face of their spring ad campaigns.  I would be completely happy with that, because these gowns are works of art.

        Atelier Versace Spring 2011


Helen Mirren looks indisputabley awesome for her age.  I am always amazed at how stylish and well put together she is on the red carpet.  She seems to favor Elie Saab, whose feminine designs work well for her.

 Elie Saab Couture Spring 2011, Naeem Khan Fall 2011, and Ralph Lauren Fall 2011


Amy is kind of run-of-the-mill when it comes to the red carpet.  I think she should amp up her style with this dramatic Gucci (fresh off of Milan's runways) or Reem Acra.

Julianne is a gorgeous woman; it's a shame she usually ends up wearing dresses that don't work for her on the red carpet.  I think she should stick with a sleek, flattering silhouette.

Atelier Versace Spring 2011 and Neem Khan Fall 2011


And lastly, Helena always brings the kooky to the red carpet, which is why I love her!  She likes her dresses dark and a little bit crazy, and I found just the one for her.

                         Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Spring 2011

That's a wrap.  I can't wait to see what turns up on the red carpet on Sunday!
