What Dresses Will We See at the Oscars This Year?

The Oscars are coming up on Sunday, February 28th,. While I don't care one way or the other about who wins and who loses, I love to watch the stars' arrival on the red carpet. Who will be on the best and worst looks? Which designers will be represented?

I looked through a selection of recent fashion shows (Spring 2016 Couture and Fall 2016 Ready-to-Wear) and picked out some of my favorite looks from each designer. I stuck to designers who are red carpet regulars. There are, of course, plenty more, and I may do a second post later in the week. For now, though, what do you think of these?

Armani PrivĂ© Spring 2016 Couture 

Giorgio Armani's collection is rife with lavender looks. The gown at bottom center seems most red carpet-ready to me, but I hope to see something more surprising, like top center or top right. Actresses we might see in Armani Privé include Cate Blanchett, Hilary Swank, Naomi Watts, and Uma Thurman.

Chanel Spring 2016 Couture

I wasn't especially impressed by anything in this collection, but we may see Kiera Knightly wearing one of these looks, most likely one from the top row. Other actresses who may wear Chanel include Julianne Moore, Kristen Stewart, Blake Lively, and Sarah Jessica Parker.

Zuhair Murad Spring 2016 Couture

I had to limit myself from six looks from this collection; there were several more that were definitely Oscar-worthy. Actresses who may wear Zuhair Murad include Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jennifer Lopez, and Chrissy Teigen.

Valentino Spring 2016 Couture

Valentino's collection was maybe slighty out there for the Oscars, but wouldn't it be great to see someone wear something different for a change? I'd love to see any of these on the red carpet.  Actresses who we may see in Valentino include Kirsten Dunst, Keira Knightly, and Anne Hathaway.

Alberta Ferretti Spring 2016 Couture

This whole collection is a knock out, with a very Downton Abbey 20's influence (as had many collections this season). Will anyone be bold enough to wear something like the first look? Probably not. Or maybe Kristen Wiig, Jada Pinkett Smith, Kate Beckinsale, Anna Kendrick, or Laura Dern will step it up this year.

Elie Saab Spring 2016 Couture

Elie Saab's collection is inspired by India. Will we see Jennifer Lopez and Emma Stone wearing this designer again this year? Kate Beckinsale, Mila Kunis may also choose Elie Saab.

Jenny Packham Fall 2016 ready-to-wear

Jenny Packham is another red carpet regula (and a big favorite of Kate Middleton). This collection harkens back to the 1970s and has a silhouette for just about every body. Julianne Hough, Vanessa Hudgins, Christina Hendricks, Sandra Bullock may wear this designer on Sunday.

Carolina Herrera Fall 2016 ready-to-wear

These two looks seemed most red carpet ready. Tina Fey, Renee Zellweger, Amy Adams, Christina Hendricks have all worn Herrera on the red carpet in the past.

Christian Siriano Fall 2016 ready-to-wear

Will we see any of these three Christian Siriano looks on the red carpet? I'm thinking #3, but it's pretty safe. Pretty please can someone wear #2? Christina Hendricks? Lady Gaga? Shailene Woodley?

Here's two more looks with potential.

Schiaparelli Spring 2016 Couture

Vivienne Westwood Red Label Fall 2016 ready-to-wear

Of course we'll see Dior, Givenchy, Prabal Gurung, Alexander McQueen, Gucci, and Versace on the red carpet as well. So what do you think my chances are? Will anyone wear any of the looks above?
