††It’s that time of the year again: the Academy Awards are here, a time when we laud actresses for wearing expensive dresses they don’t own and sporting hairstyles and makeup someone else did for them.†
But how many times has Taylor Swift worn Elie Saab and Valentino? Wouldn’t it be a much more interesting affair to watch us neophytes try to gracefully lug 9-foot trains down the red carpet in 5-inch Manolos?
We’d instead love to see the civilian Oscars: regular people fielding E! reporter questions while remembering not to smudge their lipstick.†
To that end, today we ask you: what would your Oscar style be, from head to toe? What designers would you wear? Would you sport Old Hollywood hair and red lips? A plunging neckline and sequins? Something safe, tried-and-true — or would you dare to go modern, abstract, bold – COUTURE?
We want to hear all about it in the comments below. Describe anything and everything, from pin curls to peep toes!†
