Tim Gunn hopes Meryl Streep can make it work on the red carpet.
The "Project Runway" mentor suggested Streep wear something more flattering than last year when the actress, who was nominated for her part as a cutthroat fashion editor in "The Devil Wears Prada," donned a long black dress and was infamously draped in chunky coral and turquoise jewelry.
"I worry about Meryl," Gunn said at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills. "She's so smart. She's so talented. I felt so bad for her last year at this event. I had the highest expectations for her because of the role she was nominated for."
Gunn's most looking forward to seeing fashions on Cate Blanchett, Julie Christie, Angelina Jolie and Helen Mirren, "the most stunning and ravishing woman on the red carpet" at last year's Oscars.
"If everyone follows current fashion trends, we should see a lot of jewel tones, black and ivory, and a little birdie told me we'll see lots of yellow on the red carpet," said Gunn. "But, boy, yellow is a difficult color. Very difficult."
