Our queen is due for an Oscar and dressing like she’s on her way to picking one up. She turned up the dials on her red carpet efforts very early on and she’s continued to delight and confound us through awards season, never quite settling on one style, sometimes nailing it and sometimes going off in a direction we’d have recommended against. We feel like we’ve been watching someone feel her way through a personal style and towards a statement about herself. The looks are all strong as hell. One through-line you can always count on, no matter what other choices she’s likely to make, Laura Dern almost always picks looks that are hard to look away from.

She favors bold colors – especially rich greens, which look great on her, and a style or silhouette that either accentuates her shoulders or plays off them. She likes to project a certain amount of strength in her style and tends to stay far away from ruffles or frills. If it were up to us, we’d tell her to stick with Gucci, since the house’s current fixation on Boho Glam really suits her to a T.
