It’s alright, you can be real with us: nobody really cares who wins at the Oscars. Sure, we’ll be talking about it next day and it does set a precedent for the rest of the winner’s year, but, for the most part, the ceremony is a sober, self-impressed affair that we watch just to know who was wearing what in real time. With less shenanigans than the Globes, less spectacle than music awards shows and too many speeches that run overlong, many of us just watch the Academy Awards for a generous heaping of pretty.
Each red carpet usually does present us with some surprising sartorial choices, but that said, there usually are some ladies we’ve learned to enjoy and expect some stellar looks from. Someone give their stylists a raise, pronto: here are the ones to watch this coming Oscar season:
Priyanka Chopra might not be up for a statuette this year, but she’s still likely to dazzle nonetheless. With each red carpet this beauty’s attended, she’s slowly started to leave the shapeless Jason Wu gowns and big-bustle skirts for slinky, glittery dresses that make her look statuesque herself. Thanks for representing for the brown girls, P.C.!
