Fantasy Oscars Stylist 2019: Best Actress Nominees

Best Actress.png

It’s time for my absolute favorite post of the year: Molly plays “Fantasy Oscars Stylist”! After an exhaustive look through the couture and ready to wear collections from 2018 and 2019, I feel prepared to style this years “Best Actress” nominees. This was no easy task – from a first time nominee and red carpet newcomer, to a woman who once wore a dress made out of meat, these five women really run the sartorial gamut. Read on for my completely subjective, yet utterly flawless, picks for tomorrow’s red carpet – and stay tuned for a rundown of the “Best Supporting Actress” nominees and the myriad of presenters!

Yalitza Aparicio

My Oscars Pick: Georges Hobeika Spring 2019 Haute Couture OR Oscar de la Renta Spring 2019 RTW

Hobeika Sp 19 Yalitza

Odlr 18 Yalitza

Yalitza has had quite the debut run! Within a year she’s gone from a complete unknown to a red carpet star – and done it with aplomb. She’s demonstrated a willingness to try a lot of different styles, so I simply couldn’t pick just one look for her! First up, I would love to see her go big for the grande finale of awards show season in this fairy tale of a gown from Georges Hobeika. A lot of her cocktail and daytime looks this last year have been embellished and ultra-feminine, so this feels like a good fit for her. And if that’s too much for the after-parties, I recommend she change into this white, floral column dress from Oscar de la Renta. It’s an absolute crime that no one has worn this dress yet, and I would love to see Yalitza, the first Indigenous, Mexican actress nominated for an Academy Award, celebrate her heritage in a dress featuring the colors of her home country’s flag!

My Oscars Pick: Alexis Mabille Fall 2018 Couture

Mabille Fall 18 Glenn

It looks likely that Glenn will pick up her first Oscar tomorrow night, and she’ll likely do it while wearing black. She tends to stick to neutrals, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun with it! I have been waiting for someone to wear this tuxedo inspired gown from Alexis Mabille and think it would be perfect for Glenn’s big night.

Olivia Colman

My Oscars Pick: Celia Kritharioti Fall 2018 Couture

Celia Kritharioti F18 Liv

Olivia also has a very carefully chosen color palette she doesn’t seem to stray from. And while I would love to put her in something enormously bustled and Queen Anne inspired – I think I will stick with sleek, elegant, and black with this slightly glittering number from Greek designer Celia Kirtharioti. Feathered fascinator, optional!

Lady Gaga

My Oscars Pick: Giambattista Valli Spring 2019 Couture

Valli Sp 19 2 Gaga

I have been pondering on what Lady Gaga will wear to the Oscars since the awards season buzz started for “A Star is Born” and I am just as unsure as I write this as I was back then. Gaga has gone through a major style metamorphosis as she transformed from “meat-dress wearing pop singer” to “serious Oscar nominated actress”. She started out with a hard-to-top feathered Valentino gown at the premiere in Venice and went big again in a baby blue gown also from Pierpaolo Piccioli at the Golden Globes. In addition to volume, she’s also favored pale pink and feathers quite a bit, so I would love to see her in this glamorous and very old Hollywood Giambattista Valli. Flight stewardess hat, optional!

Melissa McCarthy

My Oscars Pick: Sara Battaglia Fall 2018 RTW

Melissa has had a great red carpet run this season! She has a definite penchant for glitter, so I would love to see her in this beautiful, Oscar-esque gold gown from Sara Battaglia. Although, I would definitely recommend different footwear than these basic bitch black flats!
