With our last outfit we got glammed up for the Grammys! This week, award season comes to a luxurious end with the 88th Annual Academy Awards. While we may not be invited to these swanky events, we still love the idea of dressing up for them. When it comes to choosing an Oscars gown you have to go big or go home. No one in the fashion biz makes a grander gown than Zac Posen. Known for his art-like structure, Mr.Posen was an easy go to for our dream dress. This duchess off the shoulder gown is the ultimate showstopper, and it doesn't hurt that it's in our favorite shade of (Kentucky) blue. A big event calls for big jewels. Since our neckline is already so detailed we decided to skip a necklace and go for the lobes. These diamond and sapphire drop earrings by Gemma add just the right amount of sparkle. Even though our gorgeous frock will cover our toes for most of the evening, it is still important to have the perfect shoe. Criscross, tie-back metallic sandals by Aquazarra make a simple statement, and allows our dress to do all the talking. For a soft touch of femininity,  this perspex Kotur clutch detailed with fluttering butterflies and geometric shapes is sure to turn heads. Giving another nod to Zac, we chose a classic red lipstick from his new collection with MAC Cosmetics. Nothing makes for a more regal, Hollywood moment, than a bold red lip. Even though we weren't nominated, in this look not only will we be 'Red Carpet Ready', we'll feel Oscar worthy too!
