Rose Byrne predicts Marchesa domination

Rose Byrne has created a Marchesa-themed drinking game in honour of the popular designer brand.

The Australian actress joked that she is sure the label will dominate the red carpet at the 84th Academy Awards later this month and has urged fashion fans to drink every time they see a Marchesa design.

The Bridesmaids star also revealed she has already lined-up some "cool" options for her Oscar's outfit.

"I'm trying to think what's the most popular designer. I feel like a lot of people a lot of people are in Marchesa. Okay you've gotta have a drink every time someone in Marchesa walks by. I think you'd be pretty tanked by the time you got to the auditorium," she joked with fashion publication Fashionista.

"I won't reveal too much, but we've got a couple of great really cool options and we're having a couple of fittings soon. But yeah, I want it to be a bit of a surprise so it's exciting to see what's coming in and it's been fun."

Rose also explained why she chose to wear a sequined jumpsuit at the Screen Actors Guild (SAGs) Awards last month.

The brunette beauty said she had had her eye on the design for a while and knew she was going to get mixed reviews from fashion critics.

"I had tried on this jumpsuit a few years earlier and I ended up wearing something else to an awards ceremony and my stylist Penny [Lovell] was like, 'What about that jumpsuit from Elie Saab?' Luckily we could get it back and we just went from there," she said.

"I totally knew it was not going to be received well by everybody, so I was prepared for that. What was really lovely on the night was that I had so many compliments from people at the event and that was really nice, but I went in thinking it would be risky."
