We have seen some gorgeous gowns hit the runway at the spring couture shows in Paris this week but Valentino's collection is on another level. Since these breathtaking gowns were made for the red carpet, I have decided to match each look with the actress who should wear it to the Academy Awards. Let's get started!

This was the first gown to hit the runway. Am I crazy, or would this look stunning on Anne Hathaway?

According to WWD, when this model hit the runway in this "black, birdcagelike cape," the audience started clapping. Did you catch my cape story yesterday? Capes are here to stay!

Rooney Mara should rock this dress when she heads to the Academy Awards. I hear she will be a presenter and her pale skin will look beautiful against this gown.

Sienna Miller, this is the fun, colorful gown for you. Now, how will you wear your hair?Valentino Spring 2013 Couture Show\\Photos: Courtesy of Glamour

Jessica Chastain: When you're considering Oscar looks, how about this one?

WWD said that at the end of the show, Valentino Garavani rose to his feet and was visibly emotional as he embraced the designers who succeeded him at Valentino. Who could blame him: it was a ravishing collection.

What do you think Valentino's runway show? Do you agree with my dress/actress picks? Or, do you have a better idea? Discuss!
