Oh No! Oscar Boredom



Although I find the actual academy awards rather long winded and a trifle boring...I love love love the RED CARPET fashions. As usual, I have not been able to wait for the award show on tele tonight and have been surfing for my fashion fix on the net this afternoon.


Bad news I'm afraid...It's all looks rather dull! SAFE and black. Even OUR Cate and OUR Nic look a little black & dreary...they are both pregant though so I'm letting them off with a warning this time.


However, there are a few killer red frocks worn by Katherine Heigl, Helen Mirren, Miley Cyrus, Ruby Dee, Anne Hathaway and Heidi Klum to cheer me up thank God. Anne is the stand out in her beautiful Grecian gown although it seems to have flowers sprouting out of the front of it and her makeup is a little garish. Katherine Heigl's dress is also rather spectacular.








Renee Zellweger's silver frock is the winner for me so far - even if this photo does make her look like a little toothpick, she looks so elegant!
The beading on the dress is devine!

i like anne hathaways dress, i think the flowers add that little bit extra compared to most of the red dresses...but all in all i found alot of their choices rather boring...we need to bring back cher, lara flynn boyle and bjork to trash things up...whatcha reckon?

absolutely! what's an academy awards without a swan frock or a tutu for pete's sake??? They should have invited Bai Ling...she's always good for a shock frock too!

Agreed that the fashion was absolutely safe this year. I mean, I understand that with how much celebs get torn apart afterwards, they might be reluctant to get adventurous but it's the *Oscars.* Even all of the red gowns started to seem a little monotonous to me given that they were all the same fire engine color.
