if i were a celebrity stylist: the oscars

One of my the OG bloggers in my life always does an Oscar red carpet round-up that I look forward to reading every year. This year, I thought I’d try my hand at being a stylist to the stars and had such a blast sifting through the Couture shows on the Vogue website. Gah, why can’t I be a movie star? Below, I’ve dressed some of my favorite stars: nominees, presenters, and red carpet queens… Here’s what I got:

Constance Wu

This Ralph & Russo Spring 2019 Couture gown is a legit D R E A M. This gown would suit Constance, who is presenting tonight, so well - This color + the floral-inspired beading would be such a breath of fresh spring air on the carpet. Can’t you just see it?

Emma Stone

Emma is a nominee tonight so I’d love to see her make a departure from the muted, demure looks she’s been sporting lately - The color of this Zuhair Murad gown would be incredible on her with a diamond statement earring.

Helen Mirren

Let’s be real, the dame can do no wrong on the red carpet but I’d love to see her in this champagne-colored Givenchy. The beadwork is stunning, and I think that this silhouette would really suit her.

Charlize Theron

We all know that Charlize is some kind of unicorn. Like, how is she real? So statuesque and just a complete stunner - The woman could wear a paper bag and still be the best dressed on the carpet. BUT, if it were up to me.. I feel like this Elie Saab gown was made for her. This color is in a word: incredible - Just picturing Charlize in this gives me goosebumps. #bestdressednominee

Emily Blunt

Emily is SO always SO ladylike, she’s always one of my red carpet favorites. I tend to prefer her in a deeper color as opposed to the pastels/nudes she typically wears. I think that this Dior gown would be incredible on her (full-length, of course) - The silhouette is simple but SO stunning, the plunging neckline adds a hint of sexiness that we don’t always see from Emily on the carpet. UGH, and the belt is SO good.

Lady Gaga

Gaga, Gaga, Gaga… I’m not sure that she’ll win tonight but she is hands down the most anticipated red carpet arrival, in my opinion! We all know she’ll likely show up in something custom but if I had the Spring 2019 Couture runway looks to choose from, I’d put her in this Elie Saab gown. This dress is such a stand out and I think the cut and color would look amazing on her. Probably too tame for Gaga but paired with some mega topaz or pinky-ruby statement earrings this look would be… WOW.

Lupita Nyong’o

Talk about a fashion icon - Lupita always kills it on the red carpet. She’s not afraid of color and I think this Valentino gown would look RIDICULOUS on her. She’s probably the only star that I could picture pulling this gown off. Lupita is petite though, so this would need to be much more tailored to her than it is on the model that so she’s not overwhelmed but all of the fabric. Add some diamond studs? Yes, please.
