Tonight is the night! The 2014 Academy Awards is tonight! The biggest night in Hollywood is sure to give some major red carpet moments when the stars start taking to the red carpet in just a few short hours. Among those who will be walking the red carpet, and then presenting later in the evening, is Jessica Biel. Over the past year we really saw Jessica come into a stunning red carpet diva, not once landing on my Worst Dressed list (which she used to frequent). I am hoping that tonight Jessica will keep up her stunning run and this black and green Giorgio Armani Fall 2014 RTW one shoulder gown will do that for her. A black Edie Parker clutch, a pair of black Brian Atwood pumps that feature gold metal detailing on the heel, a pair of gold and emerald drop earrings, and a gold cuff will finish this look off and ensure that Jessica is on the Best Dressed list yet again!
Scarlett Johansson is on the list of people that will be seen during the 2014 Academy Awards in the television commercials but I have NO idea what she will be doing there as she hasn't been on any of the press releases about the telecast. Either way I would love to see the face of Dolce & Gabbana beauty wear this black satin strapless Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2014 RTW gown with a sequined train. It is a tasteful yet subdued with a touch of 60s Hollywood glamour. If this gown had been around in the time of Grace Kelly I think that she would have snatched it up for the Oscars. Witch Grace as my inspiration for the rest of the look I would pair this look with a black crystal clutch, a pair of black Christian Louboutin crystal embellished sandals, a simple pair of diamond earrings, a statement diamond necklace, and a simple bracelet. And for the beauty a bold red lip, a sleek rolled 60's glam hairstyle, and glowing skin everywhere else will finish off this screen siren look.
And the time has come, the last wish for the 2014 Academy Awards, and the 2014 Awards Season in general. Viola Davis, who has yet to win her own little gold man, will be on hand this evening as a presenter. For tonight I am wishing that Viola will actually wear the gown I would LOVE to see Lupita Nyong'o to wear. This black and white Naeem Khan Fall 2014 RTW gown inspired by the 1920's and 1930's is perfect for the Academy Awards. It is glamorous and grand. Finish the look with an emerald Edie Parker clutch, a pair of black sandals, an emerald and diamond bracelet, and a statement pair of emerald and diamond earrings will complete this look and a pair of bold red lips will be the cherry on top.

Naomi Watts has kinda let me down this Awards Season. While playing fashion icon and princess Grace Kelly Nicole Kidman refound her love for fashion, the same can not be said for Naomi who played Princess Diana last year. I am hoping for a jaw dropping moment when Naomi takes to the red carpet at the 2014 Academy Awards on Sunday as a presenter. This black and white 3D embroidered Marches Fall 2014 RTW strapless gown would be a perfect choice for Naomi to make for her red carpet wardrobe. This gown is elegant and odd which I think is something that Naomi loves to work on the red carpet. I would keep the look on the gown by just adding a simple black box clutch, a pair of simple black Saint Laurent sandals, a bold red lip, and a sleek simple up-do so that the emphasis of the look is completely on the gown, which is a work of art.
It has been quite some time since we have seen Penelope Cruz take to the red carpet. Last year Penelope put all of her year into her pregnancy and being a new mom. I am praying for a jaw dropping moment from the stunning Spanish actress come Sunday nights Academy Awards. I think that this silver Oscar de la Renta Fall 2014 RTW silk gown would be the perfect choice for the star who tends to work a very Grace Kelly-esque look when she walks the red carpet. The fitttedness of the gown will show off what is no doubt a banging post baby body while the added train will add the drama needed for the Academy Awards red carpet. A silver Edie Parker clutch, a pair of silver crystal encrusted Rene Caovilla sandals, a pair of stunning earrings and a bracelet from Chopard will finish off this perfect look for Penelope's first post-baby red carpet appearance.
Finally for today I have a wish for one of last years Best Supporting Actress nominees Sally Field, who will be returning to the Dolby Theater tomorrow night as a presenter at the 2014 Academy Awards. The 67 year old actress loves to have fun with fashion and that is something that I admire so much about her. Sally has a perfect body for someone her age and she likes to show off her arms. I am kinda doing that with this J. Mendel Pre-Fall 2014 navy blue gown which features black sheer yoke and sleeves with a floral embroidery. This is a simple gown perfect for Sally as a presenter for the Oscars. I do think that the sleeves need to be hemmed to hit just at the top of the wrist and not half down the hand like it was presented in the lookbook. A black satin clutch, a pair of black satin Salvatore Ferragamo peep toe pumps, and very simple jewelry in Sally's ears will complete this amazing look for her 2014 Academy Awards appearance tomorrow night.

The queen of effortless glam Kate Hudson will be on hand Sunday night to present during the 2014 Academy Awards. Kate always makes some appearance during Oscar night looking 100% Flawless, like usual, and I was hoping to see her wear this sexy yellow Atelier Versace Spring 2014 RTW long sleeved gown no matter if she was attending the main ceremony or the one of the fabulous after-parties. The first thing that I would make sure to do is have this gown altered to remove the hood that was featured on the runway. This hood was great for the theatrics of the show but I don't think would translate well off the red carpet on anyone that's not Lady Gaga, Rihanna, or Ciara. A pair of gold peep toe pumps and very simple jewels will make sure that this gown is perfect for the red carpet.
A very pregnant Kerry Washington will also take to the stage at the Dolby Theater on Sunday night as a presenter during the 2014 Academy Awards. Having been mostly a miss on the red carpet during this awards season I am hoping that Kerry will finish off this red carpet season in big grand glamorous style. This white Dennis Basso Fall 2014 RTW trapeze gown with black and gold abstract print is perfect for this red carpet. A gold satin Prada clutch and black Christian Louboutin pumps will complete this look. Simple hair and makeup will just add to the glow that Kerry already exudes on the red carpet with her pre-baby glow.
1950's and Alfred Hitchcock film darling Kim Novak will take to the red carpet at the 2014 Academy Awards on Sunday night before taking to the stage as a presenter later in the evening. While for most red carpet Kim wears formal pantsuits, I am hoping that the timeless actress will don a grand gown for the biggest night in Hollywood. I think that this navy Marchesa Pre-Fall 2014 gown with sheer 3/4 length sleeves and silver floral embroidery will finish off this perfect look for the Academy Awards. I would finish this look off with a pair of silver Roger Vivier silver satin flats with a crystal buckle and a pair of simple diamond drop earrings to give Kim a true Hollywood red carpet moment.

Glenn Close has a close relationship with Zac Posen and he almost exclusively dressed the 66 year old actress and I am sure that is not going to change come Sunday night at the 2014 Academy Awards. For this years ceremony where Glenn is a presenter I would love to see her wear this navy blue Zac Posen Fall 2014 RTW gown which features long sleeves and a built in cape. I am in LOVE with this gown, continuous readers know I love me a red carpet look featuring a cape, and I think that this is the perfect look for Mrs Close for this occasion. A pair of navy Salvatore Ferragamo pumps, a navy Prada satin box clutch, and some stunning diamond cluster earrings will finish out this perfect ensemble for the 2014 Academy Awards
This is the first time that I have ever featured Goldie Hawn on this site, so lets give her a warm welcome. Goldie, along with daughter Kate Hudson (who's wish will post tomorrow), are both slated presenters at this years Academy Awards. Goldie still has that loose BOHO chic look that she helped make so popular in the 1970s. For Sunday nights awards I am trying to mesh that BOHO ascetic with the high glamour associated with the Oscars. This gold Jenny Packham Fall 20114 RTW long sleeve beaded gown would be a perfect choice for Mrs. Hawn. This gown would look elegant and dazzling while still being laid back and sexy. These are all things that Goldie looks for in a red carpet ensemble, and most importantly it is age appropriate. Finish the look with a pair of gold stain peep toe pumps, a gold box clutch, and a simple pair of gold cluster earrings and Goldie will dazzle me on the red carpet.
At last year's Academy Awards Jennifer Garner worked the red carpet in an absolutely AMAZING Gucci Premiere gown, and I am hoping that she will give us something just as amazing to talk about this year. I pulled this blush pink Oscar de la Renta Fall 2014 RTW ballgown but there is just something about it that reads a little safe for me. This might be my choice because of the fact that Jennifer hasn't worked any interesting looks while promoting her film 'Dallas Buyers Club,' which is nominated for Best Picture on Sunday night. If she goes this route a pair of gold sandals, a gold clutch, and some dazzling diamonds might help lift this look to a wow moment on Jenn but I am still holding out that she will find the most stunning custom gown in the world like last year.

Angelina Jolie will take to the 2014 Academy Awards as one of the nights many glamorous presenters. It's not quite a shock as her long term lover Brad Pitt is nominated as a producer for '12 Years a Slave,' and Ange took home the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the 2013 Academy Governors Awards. I figure that for this red carpet that Miss Jolie will don her favorite color, black, but I think that doing so in this strapless Elie Saab Spring 2014 Couture embellished gown that features silver ombre embellishments fading from the bottom. In the last year every single one of Angelina's red carpet looks, sans one black Michael Kors ensemble, came courtesy of one of 3 designers: Ralph & Russo, Saint Laurent, or Versace. I am hoping she breaks that run come Sundays awards but I am placing a pretty safe bet that she will revert back to one of her 3.
Earlier this month Anna Kendrick was the darling of New York Fashion Week, popping up in the front row of several major red carpet brands like Monique Lhuillier, Reem Acra, and J. Mendel. Despite taking in numerous fantastic gowns that we will undoubtedly take in on Oscar night I have chosen to put Anna in this gold Emilio Pucci Fall 2014 RTW embellished halter gown. I think that if Peter Dundas, the creative director of Emilio Pucci, added a liquid gold fabric underneath this gown as its lining this would make a perfect gown for the 2014 Academy Awards and not just a gown destined for a red carpet premiere or Oscar after-party. A pair of gold simple sandals, a gold Kotur clutch, Anna's hair worn in loose curls, and some very simple jewels will make this look just that much more perfect for Hollywood's biggest night.
It was never a surprise to me when the Academy announced that Anne Hathaway would be attending this years Academy Awards as a presenter. As the winner of the Best Supporting Actress award last year, Anne will be on hand to give another worthy winner their statuette. Having traded out longtime stylist, and friend, Rachel Zoe earlier this year for Penny Lovell, who dresses Rose Byrne and Bella Heathcote, I am expecting some major magic come Oscar Sunday. Rachel Zoe never pulls gowns from Elie Saab, sticking to all the really big names to pull for red carpets like Dior, Chanel, Posen, and de la Renta, and Lovell loves herself a major Elie Saab moment. Lovell gave Rose Byrne her now iconic Elie Saab Couture white jumpsuit moment at the 2012 SAG Awards. I am praying for Anne's first Elie Saab moment to come this Sunday via this white strapless Elie Saab Spring 2014 Couture completely embellished gown. This is a perfect statement for the Oscar winner, and presenter to make, especially because Anne has 3 movies slated for release this year. A white Edie Parker clutch, a pair of silver sandals, and some bomb ass statement diamonds in her ears and on her wrist will give Annie the moment to make up for her ugly pink Prada disaster last year.
Jennifer Lawrence will not be the only Christian Dior girl that will take to the 2014 Academy Awards red carpet, she will be joined by J'Adore Dior spokesmodel Charlize Theron. For this awards show, unlike for Jennifer, I did look to the Spring 2014 Couture collection. I did not see any major looks for a nominee but I think this red and white completely sequined gown with stylized circular cutouts would be perfect for the Oscar red carpet veteran. Since last years awards Charlize's hair has grown out from short and boyish to a cute and fun pixie. I think that this dress, accompanied with a red satin box clutch, a pair of red satin sandals, and some very simple diamond earrings will give Charlize that stunning red carpet look that the Oscars red carpet calls for.
And finally for today we have a wish for first time Academy Awards attendee and presenter Emma Watson. Emma has worn nothing but couture this year and why would that stop for Hollywood's biggest night? At the Golden Globes Emma shocked with a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Dior Couture frock that was a gown in the front and pants in the back and for the Elle Style Awards Emma channeled the 1960s in black and white Giambattista Valli Couture. For the Academy Awards on Sunday night I think that Emma will go for a classic old Hollywood glamour look via this cream beaded Chanel Spring 2014 Couture gown with a deep-v neck. Emma has had her share of Chanel Couture moments on the red carpet and I think that she will wear the brand for her first Oscars. I would keep this look simple with just a pair of gold sandals and very simple vintage jewelry to keep the focus completely on the gown.

Sorry everyone but If I Was A Stylist is down until 2/26.14. This is literally the worst possible time but I have lost everything that needed to be scheduled due to a tech error. I will be spending tomorrow working on rebuilding all this information. Thanks for understanding. The Oscars Posts will be back up tomorrow.
