Oscars 2017: Best Actress Nominees' Best Ever Fashion Moments

So we only have two days to go until THE biggest event in the calendar for both film and fashion. And the contenders for Best Actress Oscar include some stellar names. Meryl Streep (Florence Foster Jenkins), Natalie Portman (Jackie) and Emma Stone (La La Land) are a dream to see in the same category and it's going to be tight; then when you add in Isabelle Huppert (Elle) and Ruth Negga (Loving), you just know the fash is going to be more hit than miss.

As far as the actual gong goes, Miss Stone is clearly going to take it home unless we see one of the biggest shock stories in years. I definitely don't begrudge Emma that for her as-always charming performance, but Miss Portman is my ultimate girl crush so I wouldn't mind her stealing the spot one bit. Aaaaanyway, I decided to take a look back over some of the leading ladies' best fashion moments in anticipation of the big bulb-popping, outfit-savaging event, as stylists across the land pour their last reserves of energy into making their clients the best-dressed. So without further ado ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce the nominees...

So many incredible outfits, these ladies are giving us a delectable feast of fashion! Which is your favourite look? And who's your favourite for the Best Actress Oscar this year?

And the Winner Is...

Emma Stone

There were so many more looks I could've picked out for Emma that it was difficult narrowing them down. With stylist Petra Flannery by her side, who's regularly lauded as the best in Hollywood, Miss Stone can do no wrong. It's her confident use of colour which really makes her a favourite of mine, and she just nails it time and time again. She regularly rolls out classic silhouettes with feminine flourishes like with sweeping skirts, bows and Peter Pan collars, with the odd touch bringing it up to date such as a deep V, spaghetti strap or one-shoulder. Bravo Emma, can't wait to see what you wear to this year's event!
