Vera’s Academy Awards Wish

Cate Blanchett, Naomi Watts, Gwyneth Paltrow and Charlize Theron to wear Givenchy Spring 2010 Couture

For Vera’s first wish she’s requested something different.

“Usually in this section readers choose clothes for a person – but I think this dress is that kind of dress (an outstanding one) needs a choice of beautiful ladies to wear it.”

“I have four in my list – all very classically beautiful, rather tall, statuesque and A-list stars – Cate Blanchett, Naomi Watts, Gwyneth Paltrow and Charlize Theron”.

“All of them have already worn Givenchy – despite Gwyneth, she had only shoes – and were outstanding wearing the brand. Why not try this dress?”

” I any cases they all look much much better than Ciara (sorry, Mr Tisci!)”.

All great choices. I even liked Gwynie and Naomi, because even though they are the least obvious, they would still pull of this stunning dress.

Penelope Cruz to wear Chanel Fall 2009 Couture

“I absolutely love Penelope (in Pedro Almadovar’ movies) and she is undoubtedly a very beautiful woman. We all know the list of her favourite designers includes Giorgio Armani, Chanel, L’Wren Scott, sometimes – Alaia and Versace”.

“I hope she has had enough of wearing Armani clothes this year – I just don’t get them. I can’t get them – I’m only twenty! The same applies to L’Wren Scott.”

“We’ve seen her wear Versace to the Oscars before – isn’t it a time for Chanel?.. I remember Pe in Chanel two years ago… Sure, in this Couture Fall 2009 dress worn on the runway by Sasha Pivovarova she will be the best dressed. Fingers crossed.”

Zoe Saldana to wear Alexander McQueen Spring 2010

“To my mind, it is ridiculous that Zoe hasn’t yet worn any piece from Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2010 collection – the collection made especially for her.”

“Well I know cocktail dresses are not “allowed” on Oscars night, but why not something modified?”

“I have seen close-ups of these dresses in Italian VOGUE and Russian L’Officiel and just fell in love with them. They are so delicate! I can’t imagine a better choice for Zoe for this Oscars. A gown based on one of these pieces will be unforgettable, no doubt.”

Carey Mulligan to wear Elie Saab Spring 2010, Aquilano.Rimondi Spring 2010 and Christopher Kane Spring 2010

“I haven’t yet seen Carey in ‘An Education’ as it will be released in Russian theaters after Oscars, so I can only speak about Carey as a red-carpet chick. And you know what? That chick has her own chic, which is a truly rare thing.”

“Of course, I know Carey’s obsession with Prada – a good obsession! – but I want her to try different designers. Real style – is a mix of different designer am not I right?”

“In my point of view, Carey is obliged to wearing colour. You remember how gorgeous Maggie Gyllenhaal was in a printed Lanvin gown last Golden Globes? I do. And I am sure, Carey will be amazing in a lengthen Elie Saab. Same about Aquilano.Rimondi – embellished bustier will be very good also. Christopher Kane is a designer to watch for Carey – this dress in a full length and modified bodice will make her glow. In her own way.”

Anna Kendrick to wear Gianfranco Ferre Spring 2010, Valentino Spring 2010 and J.Mendel Spring 2010

“Anna’s Golden Globes Marchesa dress was too heavy for her. I mean, the silk of the dress was too heavy – Anna is so thin, so light girl, she needs only light gown.”

“Light, sheer silk clothes. In soft, bright colours. She needs something delicate.”

“For the Oscars Gianfranco Ferre and Valentino only need to be modified with their length.”

Kate Hudson to wear Chapurin Fall 2009 Couture, Lanvin Spring 2010 and Valentino Fall 2009 Couture

“Kate Hudson is a beautiful, young, easy-going person. Why doesn’t she play with fashion?”

“I would love to see Kate wearing this dress from Russian designer Igor Chapurin Couture collection. It would be perfect for Kate. And what about this Lanvin pink silk bow-dress? Kate, I beg for you to wear playful, embellished clothes. Leave Roberto Cavalli and Peter Dundas’ Emilio Pucci for Megan Fox and Heidi Montag.”

All very good pics, but I’m not sure any actress would risk wearing such elaborate designs such as those from Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2010 collection to the Oscars.

    Very interesting and exciting choices. I especially like the Valentino Fall 2009 Couture for Kate and the Gianfranco ferre Spring 2010 for Anna. I dont think penelope could pull of the chanel gown, the model is so fierce.

      Thank you!

      As for Gianfranco Ferre’ dress for Anna, I have picked it before she has worn other dress from the collection – I’m glad she followed my advice somehow)

    I love the idea of the MqQueen gown but dont think it will happen cuz they are pulling all of his samples back

      And there is no one to modify the dress.

      • Thomas Monks March 5, 2010 at 16:38 #

        there is still the atelier that creates the looks just not the genius behind them

      The wish was made before his death…

    Zoe Saldana wore the Givenchy gown! And Diane Kruger wore the Chanel one which I also had on my wishlist for Angelina Jolie!!

      Looks like I’m the winner of the wishes, hehe)

      I’m very-very pleased Zoe and Diane did it – shame Diane didn’t make an appropriate hairstyle(

      And, honestly, thinking about Givenchy dress I had Zoe in my mind too – but, unfortunately, she’s a little short for the dress… Still along with Carey she was best dressed of the Oscars.

      But Carey has changed the cards changing her haircolour – of course with the blond she has there’s little chance for her to play with colouful dresses…

      Thank you for your comment)
