How I Would Dress the Oscar Nominees - Kate Winslet

Let's have some fun this week! The Academy Awards takes place this coming Sunday, February 22. I'd love to see more vintage evening gowns worn on the red carpet, so let's choose a dress for the Best Actress nominees.

Kate Winslet is nominated for her role in The Reader.

I think Kate would look great wearing the designs of Madeleine Vionnet from the 1930's.

Would you rather see Kate in this 1938 gold lamé sheath with a net overskirt embroidered in graduated gold lamé circles or....

...this 1936 white bias cut satin gown with its asymmetric one-shoulder design and line of rhinestone bows all the way down the side?

Which would you choose?

My vote is for the gold lamé sheath with a net overskirt embroidered in graduated gold lamé circles. That dress looks amazing. I think it would look great after sitting down a while also and not crease as the biascut silk. ( I´m thinking about how the dress will look standing on stage receiving the award) By the way the dress would look so great on stage! And the award would be a real nice accessory.

The gold lamé ... I'd love to see that on Kate the Great.

Looks like we're unanimous with the gold lamé, as that is my favorite too. Kate needs a little sparkle!
