While we won't be entertaining any parties, we ARE interested in the fashion. We're making our 2016 Oscar Predictions in the Leading and Supporting Role categories, then telling you how to make a few of the Oscar nominees' past looks (similar to ourGrammy predictions). So with no further adieu . . .
Actress In A Leading Role
The nominees in the Actress In A Supporting Role category are...drum roll please . . .
Cate Blanchett - Carol
Brie Larson -Room
Jennifer Lawrence - Joy
Charlotte Rampling - 45 Years
Saoirise Ronan - Brooklyn
We're predicting Cate Blanchett will win. She's seen here in a gorgeous skin toned, sheer, beaded gown at the 2014 Oscars. While her dress cost millions of dollars, a similar look can be achieved for much less with this pattern from AliExpress.
Actress In A Supporting Role
The nominees for Actress In A Supporting Role are . . .
Jennifer Jason Leigh - The Hateful Eight
Rooney Mara - Carol
Rachel McAdams - Spotlight
Alicia Vikander - The Danish Girl
Kate Winslet - Steve Jobs
Seen here at the 2015 Toronto Film Festival, our prediction is that Kate Winslet will take home the Oscar in this category. Feel like a celebrity when you choose a specialty fabric and sew up this Butterick pattern.
Hope you'll be watching the Oscars! Check back with us after the show airs to see if we predicted correctly.
