Earlier I put my wishes out into the universe for the ladies nominated for Best Actress at this years Academy Awards, and Best Actor nominee Rami Malek, to wear on the red carpet at the Oscar Nominees Luncheon next Monday. Now it is time to celebrate the five beautiful women who are nominated for Best Supporting Actress. I don’t think that this title is going to be as much of a fight as the Best Actress winner. There is a clear favorite to win and anyone else winning would be a major upset. Amy Adams was a favorite to win this year, it is her sixth nomination after all, but after loosing the trophy at all the other major awards this season I don’t think that she will end up with a little gold man this year either. I personally love Amy and I believe that her performances in Arrival (which she wasn’t even nominated for) and American Hustle should have earned her one of those coveted trophies, but I guess Amy is just going to have to keep on working. I have been all over the map with her style this year so far from indifferent, to loathing, to love. She finally got it very right wearing a custom black Celine peplum ruffled column gown this past Sunday at the SAG Awards. I want her to keep her momentum going stepping onto the red carpet at the Oscar nominees luncheon wearing this white and black floral print Maticevski Spring 2019 RTW off the shoulder pencil dress. I was looking for chic ‘ladies who lunch’ looks for this red carpet and I saw this dress and had to figure out which nominee I thought would look the best in it. Immediately my mind went to Amy. She loves a great structured dress and I definitely think she would be able to sell this dress to me on this red carpet. Pair it with chic waves, defined eyes, red lips, and a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Jumping’ asymmetrical strap patent leather pumps and it would just scream lady like glamour from head to toe. Emma Stone set the bar really high for herself kicking off awards season wearing a blue, purple, and silver metallic floral print jumpsuit from Louis Vuitton on the red carpet at the Palm Springs Film Festival Awards Gala. It was one of the best LV moments that Emma has ever had. Unfortunately she hasn’t been able to sell anything else to me over the course of this awards season at all. I was really hoping she would. I had hopes that maybe she would step away from LV and give some chic looks from friends like Givenchy, Erdem, and Prada. But that has been a no go. So I have to say I had a hard time finding the right look for her to wear on this red carpet next week. I settled on this navy Louis Vuitton bi-material dress which has a plain ribbed knit top combined with a skirt in Monogram tweed. The dress features long sleeves, pockets, and a silver zipper down the front. It isn’t a boundary pushing look by any means, but it would be a chic daytime moment for Emma to wear for the Oscar nominees luncheon especially if paired with sleek hair, navy smokey eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of navy glitter Nicolas Kirkwood ‘Mira’ pearl embellished curved heel pumps, and simple emerald cut diamond Cartier drop earrings. As I said in my earlier post for this red carpet the Academy has really gone crazy for Roma. I was SHOCKED when they announced that Marina de Tavira had earned a nomination in the Best Supporting Actress category. She wasn’t nominated at any of the other awards shows so it really did come as a surprise. I am excited though to see what she will bring to the red carpet. She is also working with stylist Sophie Lopez like her fellow nominated co-star Yalitza Aparicio. Sophie has been putting Marina in a lot of Vivienne Westwood lately and I am hoping that since she has earned this nomination we see her expand her world of designers. I thought that this white Carolina Herrera Spring 2019 RTW off the shoulder shift dress which feature orange banding on the neckline, floating chiffon sleeves, and colorful floral embroidery would be a perfect look for Marina to bring to this red carpet. The appropriate look for this red carpet is the perfect meshing of casual and cocktail and I definitely think that this dress achieves that perfect balance of the two. It could be very cocktail, but it could also be very beachy casual as well. A romantic updo, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of silver, blush and gold Gucci ‘Millie’ sandals, and Irene Neuwirth ‘Gumball Grape’ chrysoprase drop earrings would all add the perfect finishing touches to ensure that balance is perfect. I am blaming Rachel Weisz’s poor fashion choices this year on the fact that she just had a baby. I don’t want that to sound like she is showcasing post baby weight or anything because I don’t think that. I just think that maybe some sleep deprivation that comes with just having a baby has clouded her judgement about what is good and what is not. I really want Rachel to get back on top form starting Monday at the Oscar nominees luncheon and just keep on hitting a stride all the way through the Oscars. She is a beautiful woman so I know that she can really deliver a chic moment on the red carpet. I decided to channel Rachel’s inner “Pretty Woman” with this chocolate brown Prada polka dotted crepe de chine midi dress which features a classic mock neck, gold button detailed cinched waist, and a micro-pleated A-line skirt. I don’t think anyone can wear a brown polka dotted dress without some sort of comparison being made to Julia Roberts iconic character and her polo ensemble. I definitely think that this would be a really chic moment on Rachel and adding a sleek bun, defined eyes, red lips, and a pair of simple brown suede Sergio Rossi pointed toe pumps would ensure that this is a perfect look for her to hit her stride in. Last, but not least, is the gorgeous Regina King. I think that she is most likely going to take home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress thanks to her performance in If Beale Street Could Talk. Typically the SAG Awards predicts who will win the Oscar, but Regina wasn’t nominated for a SAG Award and the winner Emily Blunt didn’t get an Oscar nomination. So I think that bodes really well for Regina taking home a little gold man at the end of next month. I have LOVED what she has been wearing on the red carpet so far this awards season and I cannot wait to see more. She is one of the few stars who I picked a hot off the runway couture look to wear for this daytime event for. I was looking for the perfect look and when I saw this acid green Ralph & Russo Spring 2019 Couture suit which features an embroidered gold and green crystal serpent belt I fell in love. It is more of a fashion moment that I typically expect from Regina, but I definitely think that she would sell this look to me like it owes her back rent. A sleek bob, simple defined eyes, nude lips, and a pair of lime suede Jimmy Choo ‘Romy’ pointed toe pumps would all ensure that Regina kicks off the final dash to the Oscars in high style.
The 2019 Academy Award Nominees Luncheon will take place on Monday February 4, 2019.
