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!

    What to wear on every kind of date

    It’s the best and worst time to be a single girl in the dating world. On the one hand, past generations of women didn’t have the freedom, financial independence, access to birth control (depending on your state and employer, of course), or plethora of options to meet new people—online and off—that we enjoy today.

    Your guide to hair accessories

    If you’re anything like me, you probably haven’t gone anywhere near a hair accessory for years—save for the few stretched-out Goody elastics tumbling around at the bottom of your handbag, the slightly rusty bobby pins gathering dust at the back of your medicine cabinet or that scrunchie you use to pull your hair back when washing your face in the morning. For as long as I can remember, hair adornments have been slapped with somewhat of a childish reputation; when’s the last time you saw a girl over the age of 11 wearing a barrette or witnessed a woman past her teen years sporting a headband?
