Styling the stars

I’m going to be honest, this year I’ve only seen one of the movies nominated for an Oscar – Moneyball (it happened to be the featured film on my flight from Chicago to SF).  But in reality, I never really watch the Oscar’s because I deeply care who wins – I watch the Red Carpet pre-Oscar nonsense for the fashion!

After reading the list of women nominated for either leading roles or supporting roles, I decided to play Rachel Zoe for a day and try my hand at some Red Carpet styling.

Rooney Mara The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Usually Rooney Mara is the edgy girl at the show – I thought she’d look gorgeous in something a little more elegant – something that showed off her slim frame.  I’d complete her look with a cat eye and deep red lipstick.

Michelle Williams – My Week with Marilyn

With her blond pixie haircut and petite frame, I think Michelle Williams would look great in brightly colored gown with a deep v neck – channel her inner Marilyn Monroe a bit.  I’d finish her look with a raspberry lip and some bold pearls.

Octavia Spencer – The Help

With her sexy curves, I’d dress Octavia Spencer in a lightweight fabric – something that moves when she walks.  She looks especially good in neutral colors.  I’d finish her look with minimal jewelry and a plum lip.

Jessica ChastainThe Help

With her fair skin tone and strawberry blond locks, I would dress Jessica Chastain in a jewel tone dress – something that makes her really stand out.  I’d polish off the look by adding chandelier earrings and rosy cheeks.

Looking forward to watching the Oscar’s (February 26th) – and getting a look at  what everyone is wearing (and to see how good I am at ‘virtual’ styling)!
