Oscar Party Fashion: A Guide To What To Wear This Sunday

by Natalie Decleve · February 25, 2011

    With the Academy Awards coming up this weekend, everyone wants to know what to wear to an Oscar party that will make the red carpet proud, even from the comfort of a Manhattan living room or bar. Well rather than donning a ball gown or a tuxedo, why not try a look inspired by your favorite nominee for best picture?

    Rodarte would be proud of this tutu dress and Chloe ballerinas to represent Black Swan, and what could be more apropos than a one sleeved orange sheath dress for 127 Hours? In a Michael Kors tuxedo blazer and uber chic black and white Philip Lim pumps, you'll be every bit as dapper as Leo and JGL in Inception.
