With less than two weeks to this years Oscars ceremony there are some very busy fashion stylists in LA right now.

The Oscars red carpet is the biggest runway on earth with the Hollywood A list competing to get their hands on the most fabulous frocks.

And it’s all down to the celebrity uber stylists to broker the deals and get the biggest designers names onto their clients backs.

Appearing on the worst dressed list simply isn’t an option if you’re nominated for an Oscar. 

But what if success isn’t about the choice of designer but simply all down to colour?

According to fashion retailer Accessorize the luckiest colour for a Best Actress is gold with 43% of all nominees who wore it going on to win. 

So while Olivia Coleman looked stunning in a demure Emilia Wickstead gown at the Baftas on Sunday night it looks like she might need to bling things up for the Oscars.

A quick look proved that the theory does seem to carry some weight with winners Emma Stone, Meryl Streep both scooping Oscars dressed in gold. 

Meryl Streep wore a gold Christian Leigh gold beaded gown to collect her Best Supporting actress Oscar in 1980 for Kramer Vs Kramer and again to collect her Best Actress Oscar for Sophie’s Choice in 1983.

It looks like monochrome is not the way to go for anyone hoping to get their hands on that coveted gold statue.  Olivia, I hope you’re listening.

Accessorize have also revealed the luckiest colour for a supporting actress is yellow. 

And if it’s by Georgio Armani then even better as the Italian fashion house has racked up the most winners, with the likes of Mira Sorvino wearing a beautifully crafted gown for her 1996 win. 

Yellow also turns out to be the luckiest colour to wear overall for nominees across both categories with 60% of stars going on to win.

Combined with an illusion neckline, short sleeves and a hemline above the knee, you’re on to a winner.

And American designer Bob Mackie takes the crown for luckiest designer with all the nominees who wore his gowns going on to win an award.

Accessorize also identified the unluckiest colour for a Best Actress hopeful turns out to be green.

In the last four decades 14 of the Best Actress nominees have chosen to wear green on the red carpet, with all but one losing out on the winning title.

However, there are exceptions to every rule and wearing a rather green beaded top and trouser ensemble did nothing to scupper Emma Thompson’s Oscar hopes in 1993.

For Best Supporting Actress the colour to avoid is grey. 

Nominees for this award should avoid it all costs, along with a high neck, or they’ll most likely be left disappointed – just like Kate Hudson in 2001 when she wore this exact style.

And the unluckiest colour overall?

The hue to steer clear of turns out to be silver with 92% shimmering hopefuls missing out on the winning title.

A high neck, capped sleeves and dipped hem are all styles to avoid, with only three out of the 23 actresses wearing a high neck taking home the award on the night.
