If I were an Actress

I actually was a jobbing actor for a short time but never with enough success to have been considering what I could wear on the red carpet.  But with the awards season in full swing I keep finding myself choosing outfits for the stars.  So I thought that I would share my styling choices with you.

I would love to see Nicole Kidman in a soft toned dress as she does pale skin against pale fabrics so well.  My 2 top options so far are this gown by Elie Saab,

Or this gorgeous Marchesa gown..

For Michelle Williams I would love to see her in something fabulous and reminiscent of the yellow Vera Wang dress from the 2006 Oscars.  So I have picked 2 very different looks, the first is this delicate violet coloured dress from Elie Saab which I think would look stunning on her.

The 2nd is this great dress by Oscar de la Renta which would be a fabulously sexy dress for her.

Amy Adams is stunning and I always love seeing her red hair contrast with colourful dresses, so my first choice would be this adorable dress from Carolina Herrera as the clash with her red hair would make a great statement.
But I also think she looks great in bottle greens so I have also picked this Elie Saab number which is probably a bit of an obvious choice.

Of course I have had thoughts about Natalie Portman's choices and it is taking me longer to pick her outfit especially as she is pregnant..  I would love to see her in something Black Swan Esq like these 2 Marchesa options.

But because of her baby bump I think she will be opting for something less fitted like this Emanuel Ungaro dress.

Or this beautiful Marchesa one shoulder gown however I am hoping to find something a little more spectacular.

Then last but by no means least...  Tilda Swinton, I know she is not up for an award but her choices are always so interesting that I just had to have a look seeing as she has already worn the Jil Sanders look which was an obvious choice for her.  So I have come up with this great number by Alexis Mabille.
I can't wait till the actual night to see what gowns will be gracing the carpet this year and will obviously be giving my opinions on the best and worst!


  1. The Marchesa in the second pic is my favourite its gorgeous! I thought Amy Adams hair looked very severe, it didn't in the pics but it did watching the red carpet live, I would have gone for softer hair for her and can't wait to see all the Oscars gowns, I bet we will see some of your choices - I hope so.

  2. gorgeous dresses. Can't even imagine what it must feel like to be a model and get to wear those beauties down the runway.
