Actress Melissa McCarthy is getting some well deserved attention for her laugh-out-loud role in this year's break-out comedy Bridesmaids, so much so that she is an Oscar contender for Best Supporting Actress. The fashion police will be in undoubtedly be in full force, hawking the hits and misses of the night, so finding the perfect dress to flaunt her curvy shape is paramount.

For the Golden Globes (left), VH1 Critics Choice Awards, and last year's Emmy's, McCarthy walked the red carpet in floor-length gowns with long sleeves. Assuming she will stick to that winning formula, we could see her in a gown like this Pronovias lace dress that exudes femininity and will compliment her full figure. Plus, we'd love to see her a little more dolled up than she was for the Golden Globes—more than 40 million people will be watching after all. —Stephanie Davila
