Who Will Wear What To The Oscars? Just Call Us The Red Carpet’s Mystic Meg

Who Will Wear What To The Oscars? Just Call Us Mystic Meg

We've crossed off the Golden Globes and the SAGs from our red carpet calendar - so now we're all gearing up to the big 'un: the Oscars. Our main question is what will the leading ladies wear this year? While we can't do a mystic meg and tell you what exactly will go down on the night, we can play the guessing game. So we've put on our stylist hats and made our red carpet wish lists...

1. Keira Knightley

There's one thing for sure, Keira Knightley won't be wearing anything bodycon. Keira said to E! News of maternity red carpet dressing: “Does it make it harder? It just means that you’re not going to wear anything tight, for me. Actually people do wear tight things don’t they, when they’re pregnant. I don’t want to go for that. There we go, so it’s just all quite loose, which is quite nice. I’m quite comfortable."

Keira might fly the flag for Great Britain like she did at the SAGs opting for a UK designer such as Erdem. Or she might turn to her old favourites, Chanel or Valentino. See some possible KK options in the gallery below...

2. Emma Stone

If you're a designer, Emma Stone is the one you want wearing your dress at the Oscars. She has led the awards season race so far in a Lanvin jumpsuit at the Globes and black Dior tuxedo-inspired gown with sheer skirt to the SAGs. This awards season she has been anything but predictable - will she continue to go against the frothy grain, or will she fall into the arms of Valentino and be the first to wear their Spring 2015 couture collection? See some of our options for Ms Stone below...

3. Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon is in the capable hands of Leslie Fremar, who also styles Julianne Moore. She favours the classics - your Lanvins; your Armanis. She often wears All American designers such as Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Zac Posen. Her go-to silhouette is body-skimming, strapless and with a slight kick at the skirt. While she does look great in monochrome and metallics, she also pulls of Legally Blonde pink better than anyone...

4. Felicity Jones

Felicity Jones has been hailed as the Lupita Nyong'o of 2015. Felicity doesn't have any brand loyalties just yet - she has been hitting the red carpet in delights from Dior, Erdem, Prada, Osman, Valentino, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, Prabal Gurung and Elie Saab. Of course she also has the best dressed co-star as her Oscars side-kick: Mr Eddie Redmyane.

5. Marion Cotillard

Marion Cotillard will be this year's Jennifer Lawrence. No, no, we're not suggesting that she will fall over her heels or talk about Big Macs, but she is bound to wear Christian Dior. Marion is a senior face of Dior and has been appearing in Lady Dior campaigns since 2008 - she also has her very own Dior mannequin so that designers can make gowns to fit her perfectly. We're hoping that Raf Simons is creating her a red carpet version of the couture stripey full skirts which hit the runway earlier this month...

** 6. Julianne Moore**

Julianne Moore was named Best Actress at the SAGs and the Golden Globes, standing her in VERY good stead to go home with the gold man come February 22nd. Julianne wore Givenchy Couture to the SAGs and the Golden Globes, so imagine her stylist Leslie Fremar is plotting with Riccardo Tisci for the Oscars as we type.

Julianne said to Grazia about her red carpet style: "It's always a challenge because you want to wear something that's beautiful and you want to wear something that you can move in, and then 9 times out of 10 I wear something that is beautiful and I can't move in it. I'm always swayed by beauty and not practicality. But it's a great problem to have! I love it." Givenchy feathers it is then?
