Berenice Bejo

Berenice Bejo is nominated for her role in “The Artist,” a critically-acclaimed silent film. Bejo’s style is all but quiet, with bold looks and minimal jewelry. We love her elegant, but modern red carpet outfits -- whether it's a stunning day-to-night dress at Paris Fashion Week or strapless gown at the Golden Globes in 2012. The only words spoken in the film are “With pleasure”, and it will be our pleasure to see her on the red carpet for the Oscars.

Christopher Plummer

Christopher Plummer earned himself an Oscar nomination for his work in the film, “Beginners.” Looking classy and GQ, his fitted navy suit and black tux look suave and age-appropriate. Although we don’t know what he will wear to the Oscars, whether it be a bow tie like the Golden Globes, or a classic windsor as seen at the 37th Annual Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards, he is sure to sport a smile on the red carpet.

Melissa McCarthy

Melissa McCarthy shocked "Gilmore Girls" fans and earned herself an Oscar nomination with her outlandish performance as raunchy future sister-in-law, Megan, in “Bridesmaids.” Back in the spotlight on the red carpet, McCarthy shines in jewels and sequins. A pro at accentuating her waistline and beautiful green eyes, this funny girl looks stunning in her short, midnight blue dress at the Palm Springs International Film Festival, and hunter green gown at the Golden Globes in 2012.

Jonah Hill

Branching out of his usual comedy genre, and earning himself an Oscar nomination, Jonah Hill plays a Yale graduate working for the Major Leagues in the film, “Moneyball.” Hill looks like a million bucks in this classic black suit worn at the Palm Springs International Film Festival and tuxedo from the Golden Globes in 2012. With his hair slightly gelled and combed to the side, it makes for a final polished look.

Octavia Spencer

Octavia Spencer won our hearts, and an Oscar nomination, playing the feisty “Minny” in “The Help.” Both of these looks seen at the 12th Annual AFI Awards and the Golden Globes accentuate her waistline and give her a flattering, hourglass shape. In addition, minimal eye makeup and a nude, glossy lip show off her natural beauty. Looking for a final touch? A bold ring and black nail polish add a little dash of sass.

Nick Nolte

Don’t mess with Nick Nolte who plays “Paddy” and earned himself an Oscar nomination in the film, “Warrior.” Seen changing up his look at the "Warrior" premier with sunglasses, and showing off his facial hair at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, Nolte is suited to play any role. Whether it be a casual look or a more put together outfit, his own sense of style always shines through. Nolte keeps us guessing -- we can’t wait to see what he will wear at this year’s Oscars.

Jessica Chastain

Oscar-nominated Jessica Chastain who played “Celia Foote” in “The Help,” is a knockout with these two looks. Sporting a high neckline, fitted waist and zero sleeves, at both the"Coriolanus" New York Premiere and the Golden Globes in 2012, she has made the perfect choice to accentuate her small waistline and toned arms. Showing off her gorgeous face with minimal makeup and flowing hair -- Chastain is no outcast on the red carpet.

Kenneth Branagh

Oscar-nominated, Kenneth Branagh played a hot shot director and actor in “My Week with Marilyn” and with these looks it’s easy to see why. With dimples, a touch of facial hair, and dreamy blue eyes it’s no surprise Marilyn wanted to star in his character's movie. Branagh shows off his sense of style (and color) at the 17th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards with hip glasses for a “Clark Kent” vibe (who doesn’t like that?!). He goes classic in a black suit and tie combo at the 2012 Golden Globes.

Janet McTeer

With those curves no one would have guessed that Janet McTeer played a man in her Oscar-nominated film, “Albert Nobbs.” McTeer knows, elegance is key. Her minimal jewelry and soft curls kept her looking poised at the "Jerusalem" Broadway Opening Night. At the 2012 Golden Globes, she went for a natural makeup look in her slimming black gown. With this beautiful neckline and flattering silhouette, a shirred black dress is always in style.

Max von Sydow

With a smile that will melt anyone’s heart, Swedish-French actor Max von Sydow starred in the film, “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close,” and, with an Oscar nomination, will be joining his fellow cast members at the Oscars. No stranger to the red carpet, Sydow may wear a suit with a patterned tie as seen at the film's New York premiere, or possibly a classic tux, as he wore to the 57th Cannes Film Festival. Whatever the case may be, he is sure to have his best accessory on his arm at the Academy Awards, wife and French filmmaker Catherine Brelet.
