OUR PICK We'd love to see the actress play up her enviable curves with a shimmering keyhole gown from her favorite designer. A slight adjustment to the neckline (Vergara, after all, always goes bespoke) would allow for just a subtle hint of cleavage. 02 of 08 Nicole Kidman Lester Cohen/WireImage; Courtesy of L'Wren Scott NOMINATION Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture-Drama, Rabbit Hole RED-CARPET STYLE Kidman shows off her tall slim shape with flawlessly fitted sheath gowns like the custom Prada design she wore to the Grammy Awards. OUR PICK A cheongsam-inspired look from the actress's stylist, L'Wren Scott, has the lines Kidman loves along with decadent embroidery. 03 of 08 Natalie Portman Venturelli/WireImage; Chris Moore/Catwalking/Getty NOMINATION Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture-Drama, Black Swan RED-CARPET STYLE Portman goes avant-garde glam with designs like this custom crimson number from Rodarte. OUR PICK Portman has mastered taking chances with texture-we'd love to see her in a petal-covered Jason Wu design that is reminiscent of her voluminous Swan Lake tutus. Bonus: the high-waisted design would cloak her burgeoning baby bump. 04 of 08 Michelle Williams Venturelli/WireImage; Pascal Le Segretain/Getty NOMINATION Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture-Drama, Blue Valentine RED-CARPET STYLE Williams channels '30s sophistication in long, sleek designs like the Jason Wu gown she wore to the Venice International Film Festival. OUR PICK We love the way a high neckline shows off the actress's chic pixie-this silver Elie Saab number is a modern take on the Old Hollywood silhouette. And check out that waist-accenting jersey inset! 05 of 08 Lea Michele Jemal Countess/WireImage; Slaven Vlasic/Getty NOMINATION Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series-Comedy or Musical, Glee RED-CARPET STYLE The diva-in-the-making works all-out gorgeous gowns like the marigold Zac Posen number she wore to the Tonys. OUR PICK We think the petite brunette looks amazing in brilliant color! This trumpet gown from Oscar de la Renta would hug her small shape while harmonizing with her larger-than-life voice. 06 of 08 Halle Berry Lester Cohen/WireImage; Courtesy of Versace NOMINATION Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture-Drama, Frankie and Alice RED-CARPET STYLE Berry rocks body-conscious gowns like this single-shoulder jersey gown from Alberta Ferretti. OUR PICK Could anyone but Halle wear this Atelier Versace design? Its illusion bodice gives a nod to her peek-a-boo Elie Saab Oscar gown, while the bright white shade complements her caramel complexion. 07 of 08 Claire Danes Stephen Lovekin/Getty; Pascal Le Segretain/Getty NOMINATION Best Performance by an Actress in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, Temple Grandin RED-CARPET STYLE Danes shines in metallic gowns with dramatic trains like the Burberry Prorsum look she wore to the Costume Institute Gala. OUR PICK The luminous actress would sparkle in head-to-toe Giorgio Armani Prive beads. A fiery palette is a fitting (and fresh!) complement to her golden mane. 08 of 08 Angelina Jolie Kevin Mazur/WireImage; Chris Moore/Catwalking/Getty NOMINATION Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture-Comedy or Musical, The Tourist RED-CARPET STYLE It doesn't take much to make Jolie sizzle-she favors body-conscious looks in neutral shades like this Versace wrap gown. OUR PICK This noir Antonio Berardi design combines the figure-flaunting shape that Jolie loves along with edgy structured shoulders.
