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!

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!

    The 20 best ankle boots for fall

    We’re just going to say it: Ankle boots might be are our favorite type of boots. They’re tough like classic motos when paired with skinny jeans or leather pants.
