Before the stars hit the red carpet on Sunday evening, we took the chance to play stylist and dress this year's power players in the ensembles of our dreams.

Charlize Theron in Oscar de la Renta
Charlize's performance in Young Adult was dark and cynical, but she certainly doesn't need to dress the part when she walks the red carpet as a Best Actress nominee. We think this shimmering Oscar de la Renta pre-fall dress would show off her figure beautifully, and based on the actress' past red carpet choices, we know that she loves a metallic gown.

Rooney Mara in Theyskens' Theory
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo star has already become a fashion industry darling, wearing looks from artsy, edgy designers like Rodarte, Givenchy, and Prabal Gurung with ease. Rooney manages to inject a bit of the Lisbeth Salander moodiness into each one of her red carpet looks, which is why we chose this shiny black Theyskens' Theory gown for her.

Zooey Deschanel in Louis Vuitton
Zooey has the quirky-cute thing down to a science, so we'd love to see her wear this sweet, feathery mint-green frock by Louis Vuitton to celebrate her nomination for the New Girl.
4 of 11
Jessica Chastain in Christian Dior
The Best Supporting Actress nominee for The Help is already known for her ultra-glamorous red carpet moments, and we think she could keep the sophisticated chic coming. This gauzy Dior gown is the ultimate in elegance, and wouldn't it look gorgeous with her coloring?

Michelle Williams in Valentino
The My Week with Marilyn star wore a floor-length floral gown to the Golden Globes last year, but we much prefer this sweet red Valentino version. It's just so her!

Tilda Swinton in Alexander McQueen
If we can count on anyone to give us something avant garde to gush over during red carpet season, it's We Need to Talk About Kevin star Tilda Swinton. She regularly wows the fashion press by wearing pieces from the likes of Haider Ackermann, Jil Sander, and Lanvin, so here's hoping that she pulls out all of the stops again this year and dons this majestic Alexander McQueen by Sarah Burton gown.

Claire Danes in Elie Saab
Claire Danes deserves to wear something showstopping to celebrate her Best Actress nomination for Homeland, and we're confident that this embroidered, sapphire Elie Saab gown will do the trick.
8 of 11
Meryl Streep in J. Mendel
Meryl likes to stay a bit covered up while still making a style statement, which is why we think this bold J. Mendel dress is the ideal choice for the Iron Lady star.
9 of 11
Maggie Smith in Marchesa
A dress fit for a dame, we know that this Marchesa number would look divine on Downton Abbey star Maggie Smith.
10 of 11
Shailene Woodley in Jason Wu
With its voluminous neon pink skirt, this Jason Wu masterpiece deserves to be worn by a pretty young thing who likes to keep it fresh. Enter Shailene Woodley, who is nominated for her role alongside George Clooney in The Descendants. A match made in heaven!

Kate Winslet in Prabal Gurung
Kate Winslet's incredible figure is no stranger to body-con dresses and cut-outs — if we looked like her, we'd show off, too! This sexy Prabal Gurung gown would be perfect for the Carnage star's strut down the red carpet.
