My final set of wishes for the 2018 Academy Awards are for the lovely ladies who will be guests of boyfriends and husbands who are nominated and presenting tomorrow night. The Oscars are one of my favorite nights and I am really excited to see what everyone is cooking up for tomorrow night. Hollywood wives can bring just as much glamour to the red carpet. Just ask Behati Prinsloo, Jessica Biel, Leslie Mann, Chrissy Teigan, Anna Faris, and Jenna Dewan Tatum. Camila Alves has been Matthew McConaughey’s Oscars plus one twice. Once in 2011 wearing dramatic yet sleek black KaufmanFranco and again in 2014 wearing a really feminine, strong, glamorous Gabriela Cadena gown. She has long been one of the lovely ladies who can really give the nominees and presenters a run for their money on the red carpet and I really want to see her go big or go home tomorrow night. I don’t mean that literally though. I think that this hot pink and black Armani Prive Fall 2017 Couture strapless gown which features a strong sweetheart neckline, 3D floral embroidery, a wide thin striped waistband, and a column silhouette would definitely deliver a really major moment. I feel like only a guest could make this bold pattern work on the red carpet. I think that with a sleek updo, smokey eye, nude pink lips, a black Judith Leiber crystal tube clutch, black Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ satin sandals, and a pair of pink rubellite Chopard Red Carpet Collection chandelier earrings all would add to the perfection of this look. It’s been eight years since Elizabeth Chambers was last on the red carpet at the Oscars alongside husband Armie Hammer. He was part of the Oscar nominated The Social Network and she wore a tacky high shine black gown. Her plus one style has come a long way. So far this awards season she has complimented Armie on the red carpets wearing Alexandre Vauthier, John Paul Ataker, Gabriela Hearst, vintage Yves St. Laurent, Giambattista Valli, and Self-Portrait and it is making me really excited to see what she will wear tomorrow on the Oscars red carpet. I saw this sherbet orange Georges Chakra Spring 2018 Couture gown which features a knotted draped silhouette, sexy split, sleeveless bodice, and a dramatic train and immediately thought of Elizabeth. I think that this soft, yet bold color would look really gorgeous against her tan skin tone and would definitely be something that would compliment the undoubted black or dark grey tuxedo that Armie will most likely end up wearing tomorrow night. Elizabeth’s stylist might have to cage fight Giuliana Rancic’s stylist, but I definitely think that this would be a much more of a major moment on Elizabeth than it would ever be on Giuliana (sorry G.) Style it with a loose updo, simple defined eyes, a soft pink lip, gold Rene Caovilla ‘Cleo’ crystal embellished coil ankle wrap sandals, and a selection of vintage Cartier jewels including coral and diamond statement earrings and a diamond panther coil watch bracelet to really turn this into the major plus one moment I know that Elizabeth has in her. And last, but certainly not least, is my final 2018 Oscars wish for Leslie Bibb who is the longtime girlfriend of Best Supporting Actor nominee Sam Rockwell. The pair hasn’t been to an Oscars together before, but I am sure that they will turn heads tomorrow night. I would love to see Leslie call up old pal Zac Posen to honestly create a custom look for her (I still remember the dramatic Zac Posen ball gown she wore for the 2012 Met Gala.) I can’t really predict custom gowns, so I went on the hunt for something right off the rack. I think that Leslie would look incredibly chic wearing this navy Zac Posen fitted off-the-shoulder gown in a subtle sheen finish which features an off the shoulder V-neck, capelet like sleeves, and a mermaid silhouette. It might not be bold couture but I think that it fit’s Leslie’s style to a T. A pair of black and navy glitter dégradé Jimmy Choo ‘Romy’ pumps, a romantic updo, light smokey eyes, red lips, and a selection of Harry Winston jewels including a pair of diamond and sapphire pendant earrings and a statement art deco floral diamond and sapphire bracelet would ensure this is just one more absolutely glamorous moment on the Academy Awards red carpet tomorrow night!
The 2018 Academy Awards are Sunday March 4, 2018!
