Last year was a first for Jessica Chastain and she showed up in a gorgeous Alexander McQueen black and gold gown. I would have loved to see it up close. This year she's nominated for Zero Dark Thirty. Dark makes me think of black. Could she wear that color again? She won the Golden Glove, but will she win the Oscar? Will she be a winner on the red carpet?
Another 2012 nominee from The Help that didn't make a positive impression with her Vera Wang designed dress was Viola Davis. The color was fantastic, but it was too tight on her bust and had a funky ruffle.
Berenice Bejo should have worn a bold green like Viola Davis did as opposed to her sheer mint Elie Saab gown. Her true beauty just didn't show through.
My most favorite gown from last year was Michelle Williams in the coral strapless Louis Vuitton gown. She might not have won the trophy, but her dress was tops in my book.
I think it would be fun to go to an awards show. I don't just mean as a spectator, but a participant. I have no idea what I would be nominated for, but I could just imagine myself in a fantastic gown. I did a little searching and came across MissesDressy Formal Evening Dress Collection. I looked through their selection and came up with 3 that I would love to wear on the red carpet. While I am dreaming, I'll just believe that I am thin enough to fit in each of these dresses.
I absolutely love this Mac Duggal Couture gown. The sequined botice is gorgeous and I just love the floral skirt and sheer overlay. I would spend a lot of time holding the overlay out as I went down the carpet.
