Sure, nearly anyone can look decent at the Oscars with the assistance of a stylist, makeup artist, hairdresser, and an arsenal of assistants. However, it takes a special sort of celebrity to show up to the biggest event in the film industry and look questionable . Of course, we know that fashion is subjective and yes, we realize some of our choices are controversial, yet the following ladies made us shake our coiffed heads in disbelief, wonder, and occasionally all out shame. Curious as to who they are? Keep reading, darling.
1. Busy Phillips
Michelle Williams’ BFF, Busy Phillips of Cougar Town, is notorious for playing wacky characters often bordering on the edge of nymphomania. Yet, this particular look demonstrates another sort of psychosis. Specifically, the bright peep-toe heels coupled with the lengthy blue earrings was daring, but as General Custer has shown us, bravery doesn’t always result in success. Oh, and as for the Dolce & Gabbana dress? Great cut, but the fabric looks like something you’d find at Wal-Mart in the bargain bin.
2. Sandra Bullock
Admittedly, we feel like jerks mocking Sandra Bullock for anything whatsoever because she is America’s sweetheart. But, the fact remains that this Marchesa frock looks as if there are bejeweled zombie hands reaching for Bullock’s derriere and internal organs.
3. Rooney Mara
Rooney Mara’s ethereal beauty has been on full display this award season and trust us when we say that we adore how she stands out amongst the bevvy of blonde, tanned, and busty celebs who are typically on our radar. Yet, we’re sad to report that this Givenchy gown makes the twenty-six year old’s bust look as saggy as that of a centenarian who’s given birth to enough babies to result in double digit figures.
4. Sherri Shepherd
Perhaps you aren’t a fan of Sheri Shepherd for her insistence that the world may not be round, but we think we have discovered an equally grievous error: wearing a black bra underneath her plunging dress. By the way, despite some serious research we couldn’t figure out who designed this
I Dream of Jeannie atrocity frock and as such, if you have an insider connection to the dark world of obnoxious TV hosts’ preferred designers drop us a line, okay?
5. Melissa Leo
We understand that at fifty-two Melissa Leo may not want to show off her guns. But, we suspect that this Reem Acra gown could be immensely improved by lopping off the awkward gold top. After all, the only person who can make a collared blouse work at the Oscars is the eternally sexy Sharon Stone.
So, what did you think of our list? Anyone we shouldn’t have added? How about anyone we missed?
