The talented ladies that have been honored with an Oscar nomination in leading and supporting roles this year have put a lot of hard work, time and dedication into their performances. Each and every one of these actresses is worthy of the accolades that are being bestowed upon them. And, when they walk down the red carpet they deserve to be wearing the best of the best, and that is Couture  —  gowns that are rich in embellishment, craftsmanship and heavenly fabrics. Gowns that are no stranger themselves to hard work —   on average, a couture dress consist of hundreds to thousands of hours of painstaking effort.

Most of this year’s Oscar nominees are quite experienced with more than a few noms under their belts (Meryl Streep, Viola Davis, Michelle Wiliams, Octavia Spencer and  Nicole Kidman). Yet, there are a few that are relative newbies having only been nominated once or twice (Natalie Portman, Isabelle Huppert and Emma Stone), and two actresses experiencing their very first nods (of many yet to come, I’m sure) – Naomie Harris and Ruth Negga. I’m rooting for Ruth Negga (can someone please explain how “Loving” was not nominated for Best Picture??), and the enviable Viola Davis. Both delivered awesome portrayals of woman with not a lot in common except for their courage, strength and resilience in difficult, trying times.

I’ve hand curated a selection of couture gowns that I’d like to see each of them grace as they glide down the red carpet. Let me know what you think of my picks!
