My Gown Choices for Oscar Night

I thought it would be fun to dress each actress who
has been nominated, taking into consideration their ages,
their style & their size...
so here are my choices for each of the 10 ladies...

Best Supporting Actress

Helena Bonham Carter
with fabulous shoes, jewelry, &
knowing her, yards & yards of tuille wrapping
& trailing

Amy Adams

Melissa Leo
Alberta Ferretti

I think this is totally cool for Melissa's "about 50" age...

Hailee Steinfeld
Oscar de la Renta
she's so young I hope she doesn't make a
mistake & wear too old...

Jacki Weaver
only Armani, only tailored


for her age & size there was no other choice,
she would look so regal dressed in this
perfect evening suit...

Best Actress

Nicole Kidman,
who never wears frilly,
I thought pale & fluffy for her long tall figure
& light skin


Michelle Williams
Monique Lulliere
red on blondes is a show-stopper look

Annette Bening

she would only need to add killer shoes
& fabulous over-the-top fine jewelry

Jennifer Lawrence
Oscar de la Renta

perfect confection for a 20-year old...

Natalie Portman
Theyskens for Theory


now, we'll wait & see what they actually wear...and
who knows, maybe Anne Hathaway, styled by Rachel Zoe,
will be the scene stealer of the evening...

my opinions on the films:

Colin Firth should have won last year for A Single Man,
one of the best films ever made.  So, here's hoping he is
a shoo-in on Sunday.

The Social Network is also one of the best films,
in my opinion.  Maybe The King's Speech will win,
but if  The Social Network wins Best Picture I
won't be unhappy.

Anything Mark Walberg does is excellent.

Inception was so confusing to me I had to leave it
after only 30 minutes.

Natalie Portman for Best Actress
because she was...

& if I were going to be on the red carpet this is what I
would wear...

a simple little black dress...

Happy Pink Saturday!

I really love the very first black dress with pants.
It's Indian style.

All amazing choices! I can't wait to see what they all turn up in. Have a wonderful weekend, Marsha! xoxo

KarenHarveyCox said...

Such lovely fashions, but I love the pink one of course.

Happy Pink Saturday,


Donnie said...

I love seeing all the fashions. Beautiful clothes.

LPC said...

I love your picks. They suit these actresses very well.

Ann said...

Such a creative Pink Sat. Post. I think your right on with your picks. I especially like what you picked for Natalie Portman and Nicole Kidman. And well your little black dress is a knock out. I'll probably just wear a little something in my closet. HA HA.
Happy Pink Sat.

Ann said...

I could see each of the actresses in my mind with their dresses on. That was fun!

You're good! You can tell you l-u-v it.

(That must have taken a lot of time!)

I'll be thinking of you as I settle in for the red carpet.

I can already envision the tablescape that I would design for these dresses to be seated for dinner. It would be an amazing event. Thank you for sharing. Cherry Kay

I always love your choices. They cannot be beat! Have a great weekend and enjoy the Oscars. I think I'll have to plan a very special Sunday Supper, don't you think?

Atelier de Charo said...

Love the red one!
Happy Pink Saturday!


Acanthus and Acorn said...

Beautiful gowns...all of if only Helena Bonham Carter would wear something that subdued!

Christina @ Fashion's Most Wanted said...

Dear Marsha, great choices. The red is the stand out one for me. I'll stay up and watch the Oscars on Sunday.

I didn't understand Inception either. In the end there were so many things blowing up and so many special effects it just got on my nerves.

Have a lovely weekend xx

Looks like you hit the nail on the head with a lot of these! Maryanne ;)

Heidi said...

Great choices. You have an eye for fashion. I can't help myself to see who wore what, but it is usually the nest day. Have a great time tonight. Love, Heidi

Elizabeth said...

LOVE these picks! The dresses are just gorgeous. I can't wait for tomorrow to see what everyone ends up wearing! Here's hoping they don't disappoint!

Happy Pink Saturday Marsha Sweetie...
A beautiful share today and yes I think we are all excited about the Oscars. I can't wait.

Love Natalie Portmans' choice that you made. So elegant and perfect. But I have to tell you Marsha sweetie, yours was the best. I can see you now. A beautiful selection.

I am so thrilled to hear that your jewelry has taken off, but I am tickled pink that you have came up for air. I have missed you.

I love your Faceted Black Onyx & Smokey Quartz Nuggets bracelet. It is exquisite. You have designed well sweet friend.

Many hugs and much love to you, Sherry

Trouvais said...

Oh that red! Not bad for brunettes, either. Quite the shoulder pads on that little number you'd be wearing. Very "no more wire hangers"-ish! Think you should go with the red instead! XO Trish

Char said...

There's lotsa pretty going on in here!!
Happy Pink Saturday, Char

quintessence said...

Great picks!! I think my favorites were the Monique Lulliere for Michelle Williams and the blue dress for Annette Bening. And you, my dear, would I'm sure look STUNNING in your "little black dress"!!

suesueb said...

You have some wonderful gowns but the black Alberta Ferreti is my favorite! Have fun watching the Oscars and have a wonderful pink week!!

Tracy F. said...

I think I would choose the red gown. How could I resist the temptation to be a "show stopper"? lol

Katta said...

Wow! How lovely aint these gowns, and you really found dresses that would be great on those actresses. I really can see them in them. Have a nic sunday,XO Katta

Jacqueline said...

Dear Marsha,
What a wonderful post and what brilliant should be you who is dressing the stars tonight.
Not many people like the dresses that Helena Bonham Carter chooses but, I LOVE her. She is quirky and always stays true to herself and I think that she would love the outfit that you have chosen for her.
.....and, I am so with you on the film Inception. My husband and I saw it and didn't understand half of it !!!!
I shall be staying up all night tonight for the Oscars as I always do. XXXX

Ruby Tuesday said...

I adore that red dress .. its stunning xx

Kellie Collis said...

These are all glamorous! I'm loving the gorgeous pink gown. Enjoy the fabulous week, Kellie xx

Queen of Dreamsz said...

Hi Marsha,

I think the first black dress with the sexy {bloomers} is my favorite. Not the proper word I'm sure but it's the first thing that popped in my mind. :-)

Happy Pink!
Have a wonderful week...

Stephanie ♥
