If there’s ever a runway season that brings with it Oscar-worthy gowns, it is couture. And, because it simply so occurs, the spring couture collections debut proper in the midst of awards season—actually jaw-dropping robes ripe for the choosing for probably the most glamorous of the Hollywood set. How’s that for comfort?

Throughout the board, the nominees are onerous hitters within the style world, from Cate Blanchett’s traditional Hollywood glamour to Saoirse Ronan’s youthful model; Jennifer Lawrence’s penchant for pink carpet princess moments and Rooney Mara’s love of edgy black robes. One factor’s for positive: We will not wait to see what these fashionable nominees select this 12 months—and, as we anticipate the glamour of the Oscars, we’ve got our fingers crossed that we see not less than a couple of of the unbelievable couture gowns of the season!

Armani Privée put an edgy spin on a pastel gown with deep black embellishment that appears to drip down from the bodice, revealing comfortable purple silk below.

This gold Valentino gown virtually screams Oscars, with its metallic gold hue, harking back to the award itself.

Oscar evening is a night to tug out all of the stops on the subject of style: The bigger the higher. In red-carpet-worthy model, Giambattista Valli created a brilliant red gown of cascading tulle that we hope makes an look at the awards.

Night glamour hit it large in Givenchy’s sequin-studded couture collection this season. Our favourite Oscar evening alternative? A protracted-sleeve gown in deep purple metallic, with a refined skin-revealing cutout in front.

For the woman on the lookout for her princess second, Elie Saab’s collection is difficult to beat. We’re notably in love with this high-neck, sleeveless beaded robe, nipped in on the waist by a metallic belt.

Our fingers are crossed that not less than one nominee steps onto the carpet, dripping with Old Hollywood glamour. And, truthfully, what higher approach to try this than in Chanel haute couture?
