And here are your various presenters and performers! Lot’s of variety here and as non-nominees, there’s less pressure to nail it!
Same caveats and parameters apply: no accounting for custom designs or collections that debut after Sunday night, and I only chose from looks that debuted in 2018.

I am beyond excited to share this post with you all. After weeks of scrolling though the latest collections from New York to London, to Paris, to Milan, I finally made my picks for what each Oscars nominee should wear to this weekends ceremony! It’s not a scientific process, but I would say these are 1) all things I like, 2) mostly things I think these ladies might actually pick, and 3) chosen with a soupçon of wishful styling thrown in!
I did set myself some parameters: I could only choose from collections that debuted in 2018. Without parameters, I had dark visions of myself combing through archival images of Chanel shows from 1962 for vintage gems. And that’s a bit much. If there was any information about who they usually wear/might be wearing/have a contract with, I tried to factor that in. One disclaimer: there are still collections debuting through Oscars weekend at Paris Fashion Week, which I won’t be able to see until after the show – but celebrities could and likely will grab things from yet-to-be-debuted lines. And, of course, there’s no way to guess who will go with custom creations, but likely quite a few folks.
That all being said, if any of these actually show up on the red carpet on Sunday, I will proclaim myself a genius, buy a new pair of shoes, and treat myself to an entire cheesecake. Not necessarily in that order.

Now that we’ve taken a look at what everyone wore to Sunday’s Golden Globes, I took a look through the collection from the last year to pick what I would have worn, like I did with the Emmy’s.
This was tougher than I thought. First of all, I wanted to choose a female designer, for the obvious reason that the blackout was partially a statement on the importance of amplifying female voices in Hollywood. Women are actually still in the minority when it comes to leading many of the top fashion houses. Also, aesthetically, I am almost pathologically attracted to bright colors and patterns, so sticking to black was definitely a challenge!
I narrowed it down to two, but simply couldn’t choose, and they’re different enough I decided to share both!
First up is this Reem Acra from her Resort 2018 collection:
I like that I would look like a nicely gift wrapped “fuck you” to the patriarchy.
My second choice is a gown I have been obsessed with for a while now from Alberta Ferretti’s Fall 2017 Ready-to-Wear line:
I love that it adheres to the blackout, but as we know, I can resist neither a cape nor a whimsical, romantic, sparkle.
