How I Would Dress the Oscar Nominees - Melissa Leo

Melissa Leo has been nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for her role in Frozen River. This is a first time nomination for Leo, and she hasn't seen much time on the red carpet.

Since Melissa Leo isn't well known, her "style persona " hasn't been developed yet. With her wild reddish hair, she has a rather bohemian mystic and I'd love to see her use that to her advantage. What better to dress her in than in a 1970's designer print?

Would you rather see Leo wear this Albert Capraro ethereal silk gown from 1975......

....or this print gown with dramatic sleeves from Lillie Rubin 1975?
