2015 Academy Awards: Lupita, Octavia, Scarlett & Viola Wish List

Last year Lupita Nyong'o rocked the Academy Awards red carpet in a pretty Nairobi blue custom Prada gown before receiving her first Academy Award. I am excited to see what the stunning actress will bring to the red carpet on Sunday night. I am going to make the safe bet that Lupita will wear another custom Prada or Miu Miu gown for the Oscars on Sunday, but I am going to pray to the red carpet fashion gods that she wears this emerald green Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture beaded chiffon evening gown.. This soft gown would be perfection for Lupita to wear for the Academy Awards as a presenter. Finish this look with an emerald Edie Parker clutch, gold sandals and a bold red lip and Lupita will rock the hell out of the Oscars red carpet.
If anyone is a sure bet in who they are going to show up at the Academy Awards wearing it is definitely Octavia Spencer. The Academy Award winning actress has been loyal to Tadashi Shoji since she first stepped out on the red carpet scene, so seeing her wear any other designer would be very shocking. I was delighted to see that when Tadashi showcased his Fall 2015 RTW collection in New York City last week that there were a bevy of Academy Awards worthy gown in the mix. I would love to see this amazing navy blue tulle ball gown with a cream underlay and black embroidery. I think that this would look fantastic on Octavia who just keeps producing win after win for Tadashi. I would however modify this gown slightly and have the cream underlay changed to be navy, maybe something with a hint of sparkle. A black clutch, navy sandals, diamond earrings, a simple diamond bracelet and a red lip would put the perfect finishing touches on this red carpet look.
Scarlett Johansson will make her major red carpet debut at the Academy Awards on Sunday night since giving birth last year. I am really excited to see what the stunning blonde bombshell will wear on the red carpet. We don't get to see much of what comes down the runways during the Dolce & Gabbana Alta-Moda shows but from what I did see the collection was absolutely amazing. I would love to see ScarJo wear this strapless Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2015 Alta-Moda red tulle mermaid gown. This is a dramatic gown that need a dramatic backdrop and what more dramatic than the Academy Awards red carpet, except for maybe the Met Ball. This corseted gown would show off Scarlett's enviable drop dead gorgeous post baby body. I would finish this look with old Hollywood waves, a red lip and a pair of simple gold pumps would made this the perfect red carpet look for Scarlett to show off that post-baby bod.
Thus far into awards season I have been blown away by Viola Davis. The "How to Get Away With Murder" star had fallen out of my red carpet graces with bland look after bland look. That was shut down when she stepped out in a red va va voom Donna Karan Atelier mermaid gown at the Golden Globe Awards. I am hoping that she keeps up her stunning run when she steps out on the Academy Awards red carpet to make her way to her presenter duties on Sunday night. I would love to see Viola wear this goldenrod yellow one shoulder Monique Lhuillier Fall 2015 RTW flowing Grecian draped gown. I think that this gown is simple enough for a presenter but wow enough for the Academy Awards. Finish this look off with a gold clutch, gold sandals, simple earrings and a glossy lip to ensure that Viola is red carpet ready.
