Here are some gorgeous dresses (and a few day dresses) that I really hope end up on the red carpet. While I know some of the Marchesa ones are way too outlandish to make anything but the worst dressed list (ie: the dress Charotte Free is rocking), I put them in this post because they are gorgeous in theory, just maybe not at the Oscars. Reem Acra's dresses are glittery and feminine, and one reminds me of the dress Cameran Diaz wore to the Oscars a la Oscar de la Renta. And Carolina Herrera's bird print is to die for.
