Nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for her role in Elle, the French star is a favourite to beat Amy Adams, Meryl Streep, Ruth Negga, and Natalie Portman, as she did at the Golden Globes last month (Jan17), and she's hoping to be a winner on the red carpet, too.

She'll be working with her stylist Jonathan Huguet for the big night on 26 February (17).

"Everything is quite confidential, but we're working on something iconic yet modern with the house we're collaborating with," Jonathan told The Hollywood Reporter. "Isabelle is an icon, but at the same time, she's always searching for something modern and fresh - and French."

For the Golden Globes, the 63-year-old looked radiant in a sky blue Armani Prive gown. She also turned heads at the Lumieres Awards in Dior.

"What I like about Isabelle is that she's a fashionista, she knows the brands and designers," he said. "She's completely open to different things, like more underground designers. She's happy to try different shapes, fabrics, designers."

Isabelle also joins actresses like Evan Rachel Wood and Tilda Swinton in championing a tailored suit on the red carpet.

"It's not unusual for her to have this boyish style because she's really close to houses like Armani, and Armani loves to play with the masculine wardrobe on women. She takes men's suits and puts it in her own way," the stylist shared.
