And just under the wire before tonight’s red carpet, here are my picks for the “Best Supporting Actress” nominees!
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!
And finally, let’s wrap up the Grammys so we can shift to our Oscars coverage before this weekend!

How goddamn cool is our former FLOTUS? LORD, I MISS THE OBAMAS.
It’s only a week and a half late, so let’s finish up the BAFTAs!

I love a redhead in red. But the construction here, like with many of Miuccia Prada’s creations, feels sloppy. Scroll to the right and take a look at the belt – why is it so long!? Why was the solution to tuck it in like the rope belt on the cargo shorts of a frat boy?

Cardi B! I don’t even know where to begin! How about with her history making win as the first solo female rapper to take home the prize for best rap album. Or her delightfully giddy and sweet acceptance speech. Or her killer performance. But for me, it begins and ends with this enormous (literally and metaphorically) statement piece from Mugler’s 1995 collection. Apparently it hasn’t been worn since it debuted in the mid-90’s and with Lady Gaga sticking to her new, more traditional Oscar nominee wardrobe, I can’t think of anyone better to pull off an utterly delightful, completely bonkers look like this.
There was a ton of black and white on the BAFTAs red carpet last Sunday, including the Duchess of Cambridge who attended with William.

This is a very Hollywood moment for Kate – she usually pulls out all the stops for her annual appearance at the BAFTAs. This custom McQueen creation is lovely and while I usually don’t gravitate towards white on the red carpet (too bridal) this feels so far aesthetically removed from her unforgettable bridal look that it doesn’t invite the comparison.
She also picked some killer jewels for the occasion. She’s wearing the Queen’s diamond bracelet and the late Princess Diana’s pearl and diamond earrings. And I am delighted to report that her Jimmy Choo pumps are fabulously glittery!
I just got back from a week-long work training in Seattle, so I am all discombobulated and exhausted and WAY behind on posts, but I’m going to try and bang these remaining Grammys and BAFTAs posts out before we move into Oscars coverage!

The erstwhile J. Lo garnered a significant bit of controversy before ever walking down the red carpet when she signed on to preform a tribute to Motown because obviously when you think Motown, you think….Jenny from the Block? Yeah. No.
I don’t mind the dress – I actually like it a lot more than her usual over the top, sexy with a capital “S” vibe. But it’s pulling across the front and the hat is just hilariously extra.
