OSCARS: How the A-List Will Look
One of Oscar's most in-demand stylists is Rachel Zoe Rosensweig, who is as pretty as an actress herself, reports PEOPLE. But the real reason for her popularity is that she's discreet -- and won't name names as to whom she will be dressing on the big night. What she will reveal, however, are her predictions for what will be the hot trends in Oscar fashion this year. "I think color (and) we're going to see a lot of vintage again," says Rosensweig, meaning couture vintage. The stylist, who is bicoastal (and already in Los Angeles in anticipation of Oscar night, March 24) also suspects that we'll witness "shorter dresses, and that we'll definitely see some of those very Audrey Hepburn-esque dresses. You'll see the old Hollywood glamor thing on the red carpet. And you'll see that reflected in hair and makeup, too." What won't we see? Actually, what we used to see a lot of (literally and figuratively): "sheer. It's been overdone in the last couple of years, especially for Oscars." Sheer, she says, belongs at the MTV awards. Rosensweig similarly predicts that there will be plenty of exclusive dresses -- meaning that not only will a celebrity be wearing a distinctive designer gown, but that star will be the only one wearing that particular designer. "They'll be doing that with the real A-list stars, like Nicole Kidman. . . There will be celebs who will commit to wear a dress by a designer only if he/she is only doing them for the Oscars." As for specific designers whose "wears" will appear on the red carpet: Chanel, Yves St. Laurent, Oscar de la Renta, Versace. "I think we'll see Ungaro for sure, as well as Givenchy, Valentino . . . all the people who specialize in glamor will be there. We'll see a lot of the European (designers), a lot of couture, and dresses from the most recent Paris shows."
