Did I mention that I am going to be posting two Oscar party wish lists a day? After posting 15 wish lists last year (with more stars in general, more stars in each individual list, and sometimes 3 wish lists a day) I had told myself that I wasn’t going to do more than 10 this year. Well that didn’t happen. I had a hard time narrowing down all the stars I felt like could be guests at this years Oscar parties so I have 95 ladies that I have spread over 19 wish lists, but I limited each post to just five stars. No other night, except for maybe the Met Gala, compares to Oscar night. We can see upwards of 200+ looks on all of the red carpets. From the main telecast to the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Viewing Party to the Vanity Fair Oscars After Party we will have all kinds of stars all over each of these red carpets and they build up fast. It makes for one of the most glamorous nights of the year. What makes the parties even more glamorous is that especially at the Vanity Fair party we see stars who were nominated and presenters at the main telecast swap the gown the wore for the ceremony for something else for the parties. Andra Day will be performing her Oscar nominated song “Stand Up For Something” at the Academy Awards and with her dramatic style I am really excited to see what Hollywood’s biggest night. I want to see Andra on the Vanity Fair party red carpet following the Oscars wearing this medium red Zac Posen evening gown in silk faille which features sweetheart neckline, a sleeveless bodice, flap details at shoulders, mermaid silhouette, and a floor-sweeping hem. I feel like Andra and Zac are a match made in style heaven. They both have a flair for the dramatic and classic glamour and this gown would definitely deliver that. Sleek victory rolls, dramatic winged eyeliner, a bold red lip, gold Christian Louboutin ‘Artydiva’ platform bow detail sandals, and a pair of IVY New York ‘Windrose’ rhodolite garnet and diamond earrings all would ensure that this gown is absolutely perfect for the red carpet at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party. Continuing the tradition of the previous years winners returning to the Oscars stage to present the following year and that will include last years Best Actress winner Emma Stone. I HATE the fact that Emma inked a Louis Vuitton contract, and I am praying that she will deliver really major moments on the red carpets on Oscar night. I am shunning the brand even though I know at least one of those gowns will be custom Louis Vuitton. For the Vanity Fair party I went short with this rose red Alexander McQueen Spring 2018 RTW cocktail dress which features a sweetheart neck bustier, thin straps, and feather detailing on the a-line skirt. Usually when Emma is at the main Oscars she goes short for the Vanity Fair red carpet. This is a sexy and romantic moment and I definitely think that it would be a refreshing change of pace to what we have seen from Emma recently. Keep it glam with chic old Hollywood waves, a defined eye, red lips, red Gianvito Rossi ‘Manhattan’ strappy patent leather sandals, and a pair of ruby and diamond Van Cleef & Arpels stud earrings. Kate Hudson has served some looks on the red carpet at the Vanity Fair Oscar party in the past wearing the likes of Atelier Versace, Roberto Cavalli Couture, Maria Lucia Hohan, and Zuhair Murad Couture. I am expecting great things from her this year because I love short hair Kate. She is edgy, sexy, and glamorous and I think that she would rock the hell out of the red carpet wearing this champagne beaded Julien Macdonald Spring 2018 RTW gown which features long sleeves, cutouts that will show Kate’s abs off fabulously, and a column skirt. This is a really sexy and glam moment that I know only a few could make work without it looking trashy or desperate, but I know that Kate would sell it to me. Add a pair of nude Rene Caovilla crystal studded platform sandals, a simple defined eye, rose pink lips, and a pair of Chopard Red Carpet Collection pear shaped diamond waterfall earrings to ensure perfection. Nina Dobrev is usually on the red carpet for at least one of the Oscar night parties be it Elton John or Vanity Fair. I always love seeing her on the red carpets, and I cannot wait to see what her look will be this year. Past years Nina has worn Christian Dior, Elie Saab, Naeem Khan, J. Mendel, and Reem Acra. From custom, to off the rack, to couture, to right off the runway the lewks that Nina has served have all been very beautiful, but she hasn’t made one of my after party best dressed lists. I would love to see her serve a really major lewk that could rival those of regular features like Kate Hudson, Jennifer Lopez, and Kate Bosworth. This black Elie Saab Spring 2018 Couture gown which features a feathered neckline, halter neck, gold feather inspired beaded embroidery, and an a-line layered tulle skirt is definitely something I thank would put Nina on the Best Dressed list. The competition to make a top 10 list on an Oscar night red carpet is fierce, but I think that knowing how good Nina can work a dramatic gown that she would definitely sell this gown to me. A gold Edie Parker ‘Jean’ lizard framed clutch, gold Christian Louboutin ‘Very Rete’ peep toe mesh pumps, smokey eyes, red lips, and a pair of 18k gold Miseno ‘Ventaglio’ diamond disc earrings all would ensure that this is a really amazing moment for Nina. It was at last years Oscars where we got out first glimpse of what Sofia Carson could bring to the red carpet when she stepped onto the the red carpet at the Dolby Theater giving us Disney princess wearing a beautiful Monique Lhuillier ball gown. Since then Sofia has been given moments in designers like Giambattista Valli Couture, Elie Saab, and Christian Dior. I would love to entrust Sofia with my favorite moment from the Christian Dior Spring 2018 Couture collection. I would love to see Sofia take this white domino printed draped gown, but I would want to see her have it lined. I don’t think sheer gowns are really Sofia’s thing, but the shape and this print is something that I think that Sofia could definitely make work. I would let the gown be the statement of this look styling it with a pair of simple black Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudistsong’ sandals, a sleek low bun, thick lined eyes, red lips, and a pair of Djula ‘Beverly Hills’ earrings.
Oscar Night 2018 will take place on Sunday March 6, 2018.
