But the decision still has not been made and Robin still needs your help. Check out the dresses below and click "comments" to read what other viewers have written. Then, tell us what you think.
Becoming the Belle of the Ball
Picking a dress for a special event is never easy, and when the special event is Oscar night, the task is that much harder.
That's the dilemma facing Robin Roberts: She will be shoulder to shoulder with Hollywood's most famous and beautiful, so she'll need to look her best.
Since Robin's not a clotheshorse -- though she definitely knows what she likes -- she decided to enlist one of her favorite fashionistas, Suze Yalof Schwartz, executive fashion editor at large of Glamour magazine, to guide her on the perfect look.
What they came up with blew her away. There were so many gorgeous options, and yet sadly, Robin can only wear one. And even though Suze guided this process, Robin needs your help, too.
Below are Robin's top three choices. Use the comment board at the bottom of the page to let her know what you think and check Robin out on the Oscars red carpet this Sunday, to see what she finally chooses.
Classic Look in Reem Acra's Cobalt Blue Goddess Dress
A New York based designer since 1997, Reem Acra creates dresses that are among the most coveted and glamorous for red carpets, weddings or other special events. She's famous for dressing stars like Eva Longoria Parker (Golden Globes 2009), Angelina Jolie ("Changeling" Cannes Premiere 2008), Kate Beckinsale (Grammy Awards 2009) and Christina Applegate (Emmy Awards 2008), among others.
When Robin went to the dress fitting, she asked, "Somebody at home, what should they look for? It's their Oscar night! What should they look for in a dress?"
"The dress should give you confidence," Reem answered. "Once you see it and once you feel it, that's it."
Accessories would include a bag by Valentino and shoes by Manolo Blahnik.
