Just 4 more sets of wishes for this years Oscar parties lie ahead before I start getting to the actual red carpet looks for the main ceremony. The party looks can be just as glam, sometimes more, than the looks that are on the red carpet at the main ceremony. We have never seen supermodel turned actress Cara Delevinge on the red carpet at the Vanity Fair Oscar party, but after a jam packed year last year promoting Suicide Squad and 3 films expected this year it would not surprise me if she is on the red carpet this year. If Cara does I would love to see her bring her dark glamour to the red carpet wearing this black to gold sequin ombre Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2016 Couture slip like gown which features a plunging neckline and sexy sky high thigh split. This gown meshes the glamour of disco with the minimalism of the 90’s in a modern way and I really think that it could be a killer red carpet moment for Cara. Styling the look with Veronica Lake waves, a smokey eye, dark matte lip, and a pair of strappy black sandals would definitely ensure that Cara kills her first Vanity Fair party red carpet. 2015 was the year of the rise of Gigi Hadid and it began with her walking the red carpets at the Vanity Fair Oscar party wearing a gorgeous black Atelier Versace gown. It was then that I took notice and was hopeful that I was going to find a new model crush, sadly most of Gigi’s red carpet moments since have been extremely underwhelming. If she skips the Dolce & Gabbana show during Milan Fashion Week I would love to see Gigi come back to the Vanity Fair red carpet. To do so in high style I would love to see Gigi wearing this gorgeous lilac Atelier Versace Fall 2016 Couture sleeveless gown which features layered detail, beautiful and subtle crystal embellishments, and baby pink lined ribbon fringe. I think that this gown needs a supermodel to make it really work on the red carpet and I know that Gigi has the chops to really make it a chic and glamorous moment on the red carpet. A sleek low bun, lined eye, pink lip, diamond cluster earrings, and a pair of silver sandals would really make this a gorgeous moment for Gigi. Kate Beckinsale is one of the presenters at the Independent Spirit Awards the night before the Oscars so I can pretty much say that she is a pretty safe bet to be one of the Vanity Fair party guests. Kate has worn so many gorgeous looks from Atelier Versace, Elie Saab, Romona Keveza, and Kaufmanfranco in past years on the Vanity Fair red carpet and I am sure that there is another gorgeous look in store from her for next Sunday night. I would love to see the statuesque side of Kate wearing this Colombian emerald Marchesa Pre-Fall 2017 gown which features an asymmetric one shoulder silhouette, peplum waist, and column style skirt. I have a feeling that Marchesa will be one of the top designers of the night for this years Academy Awards (much like it was last year) and Kate would definitely be a perfect match for this gown on the red carpet. A chic updo, gold set diamond drop earrings, a gold clutch, and a pair of gold sandals would really make this a gorgeous moment for the red carpet. Nina Dobrev has been a guest at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar party pretty much since she came onto the scene when The Vampire Diaries first started airing. Nina may no longer be on The Vampire Diaries but she is still a big star and I would imagine that she will be out in some sort of way on Oscar night next Sunday. For the Elton John (and/or maybe the Vanity Fair) party I would love to see the sexy side of Nina with this bold blue Mugler Pre-Fall 2017 silk wrap style gown which features metal discs at the shoulder, a plunging neckline, and a sexy side split. This gown is total modern glamour, sleek and sexy while incredibly elegant at the same time and I know that Nina has the chops to really make this gown work on a red carpet. Styling the look with sleek locks tucked behind the ears, a smokey eye, diamond drop earrings, a silver clutch, and a pair of silver sandals would just add the perfect finishing touches to this look for Nina. Taraji P. Henson has not yet been announced as a presenter at the Oscars next Sunday but since she is one of the stars of the Best Picture nominated film Hidden Figures I would expect that she will be on the main stage red carpet, whether or not she is a presenter or not. If she is not on the main Oscar carpet I would be sure that she will step out at the Vanity Fair party. Doing to so wearing this black Zuhair Murad Spring 2017 Couture cap sleeve gown which features red embellishments on the bodice, a bit of a plunging neckline, and a side high low skirt I think that Taraji could have one of her best red carpet moments ever. This gown is old Hollywood done is such a burlesque way that I think would just accentuate the sexy air that Taraji exudes on the red carpet. I would keep the styling very simple with a pair of black Christian Louboutin sandals, a smokey eye, red lip, diamond cluster earrings, and a sleek bob to really ensure that this gown is a major moment for Taraji on Oscar night.
Oscar Night 2017 is Sunday February 26, 2017.
