2014 Oscar (gown) Predictions!

Holy moly I know I've said this every time I've posted in the last two years but eesh! I have really neglected this poor little blog. If you're visiting for the first time or if you're my fan (I'm pretty sure that after only posting a handful of times since 2012, I don't have many dedicated fans and that's 100% my fault!). 
Anyhoozelbeez, let's get down to bidness: 
Oscar Predictions
No, I’m not going to predict who will win the little gold guy. I can’t even pretend to know what’s going on in the collective heads of Oscar voters. Instead, here are my fashion predictions for Hollywood’s biggest night!

Jennifer Lawrence
Of course she’ll be in Dior. Her new multi-million dollar multi-year contract with the legendary fashion house pretty much seals that deal. I'm not blown away by any of the gowns in Dior's Spring 2014 Couture show -- or any other recent show, really (Spring 2012 was fabulous). By the looks of their last couture collection and because Dior isn't showing in Paris until the Friday before Oscar Sunday, I'm guessing the golden child will be sporting custom Dior. With Rachel Zoe as her stylist, homegirl is going to make sure JLaw is one-of-a-kind perfection. But for kicks, here are some that may work or be re-worked for JLaw:

Julia Roberts:
Homegirl is a wildcard. I wouldn’t be surprised if she wore a fancy lady tux since it’s highly doubtful she’ll win. Plus she had her big gown moment in Valentino when she won her Oscar for Erin Brocavich.

Sandy Bullock:
She had a major Marchesa moment when she won her gold guy for The Blind Side. I’m torn as to whether or not she’ll stick with Georgina Chapman or go with another designer. I’m thinking that if it’s anyone, it’ll be Elie Saab.

Cate Blanchette:
Givenchy isn't showing in Paris until Oscar Day so I'm not too sure how things will work, plus Givenchy hasn't shown a couture collection since 2012 so the chances of Cate wearing Givenchy are pretty slim. RTW is a possible option, but I want to see some haute couture! This makes me sad, angry, and hurt. Here are some predictions for Cate:

Amy Adams:
If I can be 100% honest, I don’t like AA. She bugs me. You know how some people feel about Anne Hathaway? That’s how I feel about Amy Adams. I don’t care what she wears because I probably won’t remember it. I actually wouldn't be surprised if she shows up in something gross from the latest Versayce collection. 

Lupita Nyong’o:
I’m predicting Lupita will be best dressed of the century. Her red Ralph Lauren at the Globes was BEYOND. Since she’s the new girl on the red carpet, I have a feeling she’ll be auditioning dozens of designers. Predicting who and what she’ll wear is an exercise in futility. But, since I’m sitting in the law library with loads of Con Law reading to do, I’m more than happy to pull some predictions! I'm really hoping that she's Tom Ford's girl because really who does over-the-top-fabulous-perfection better than Tom Ford?!

For the afterparties: 
Maybe Anne Hathaway? I'd say Kate Hudson but she's been rocking Gucci like it's her job (and it basically is her job -- but she looks great in Gucci so no complaints here).

No joke this post took me over a week and a half to write because there were so many killer gowns (and so many annoying Blogger quirks). Happy Oscar Sunday, Buttons!
