You can imagine what the 2018 Oscars red carpet might look like all you want, but considering this award season's past trends — women are wearing black in support of the Time's Up movement, but stars wore white roses to the Grammys and the Brit Awards — a lot must be taken into consideration. Celebrity stylists share sneak peeks of their preparation before Sunday night, but we made it our duty to tap a professional forecaster, too.
Moda Operandi's Elizabeth Leventhal is the general merchandising manager of Ready-to-Wear for the high-fashion shopping site. Elizabeth tracks the runways and keeps a careful eye on how the looks we see translate to the red carpet, as well as in stores. Elizabeth worked with us to determine what this year's stylish nominees just may wear for Hollywood's biggest event. Ahead, brush up on the leading females, read up on Elizabeth's trustworthy predictions, and shop the dresses if you're feeling fancy.
