This week saw the beginning of awards season, as celeb after celeb trotted down the red carpet for the Golden Globe awards. As Oscar season hots up and we begin to count down the days to the big one, let’s play a little game we like to call fantasy Oscar-ball.

Michelle Williams is bound to turn heads on the Oscar red carpet, having earned accolades for her turn as Marilyn Monroe in My Week With Marilyn. She wore floor-length Chanel last year (above), but this year, just for kicks, we’d like to see her in Peter Pilotto. Graphic prints, whimsical shapes and short hems – perfect for her cute and kooky Mia Farrow hair.

You can’t go to an awards show without bumping into Meryl Streep, and chances are she’ll wear something beautiful and classic – is anyone else bored by how right Streep gets it, dastardly Mamma Mia! aside? Let’s go for a wild card and match her with a Sarah Burton creation for Alexander McQueen. Maggie would approve.

If she can just get the kids down for the night, Angelina Jolie might make an appearance – in floor-length black, perhaps – with an ageing (badly) Brad Pitt on her arm. Instead of her unique cross between demure Morticia and man-eating Jessica Rabbit, we’d like to see Jolie try her hand at a spot of Prada. Sweetheart neckline, anyone?

Do you have any Oscar style predictions?
