Worst Dressed Award
I love Tilda Swinton and her very unique style – which is not to everyone’s tastes – but I just did not like this Lanvin dress.
I hated that one long shoulder. It really did not work for me.
Risk That Failed Award
Julie Christie tried to be edgy, tried not to conform to the norm by choosing a cocktail dress which she designed herself along with long pink sheer gloves from the Louis Vuitton Spring 2008 collection, but just ended up looking very confused.
Worst Pouting Award
Miley Cyrus posing and pouting was SOOOOOOO inappropriate. So many young girls would have tuned in the Oscars just to see a 15 year old girl, pouting like Paris Hilton.
Her Valentino Resort 2008 red gown was stunning though, thankfully not to short nor revealing.
She completed her look with Neil Lane jewels and a Mary Norton clutch.
Most Disappointing Award
The L’Wren Scott diamond necklace was too over powering on Nicole Kidman’s simple custom-made Balenciaga gown. The necklace was obviously designed to detract you from her baby bump and it worked.
The looks is completed with a Bottega Veneta clutch.
Worst Haute Couture Award
Sarah Larson was way out of her league in this Valentino Spring 2008 Couture strapless gown.
Girlfriend did not own it. She just hobbled alongside George Clooney, smiling like a Miss World contestant.
This is why I love Keisha Whitaker so much. Keisha owns a dress, and outshines her husband Forest, despite him being the star.
Sarah’s hair is also terrible. It is a little lighter in colour than usual, but she could have put it up or done something different.
Worst Hair Award
I was not crazy about Jennifer Garner’s hair. For an updo I found it a little messy on the left-hand side.
I was not particularly in love with her black silk taffeta Oscar de la Renta fishtail gown either. The skirt was way too busy.
Jennifer wore Van Cleef & Arpels diamonds and a Roger Vivier clutch.
Back To Black Award
I was not shocked that Ellen Page wore black tonight.
Her in vintage gown from Jean Louis Scherrer Haute Couture collection was just a tad boring. I loved how they tried to jazz up her outfit with the long Fred Leighton necklace, but it was not enough.
Her metal and metallic leather hard frame vintage Judith Leiber purse completed the look.
DeJa Vu Award
Amy Adams emerald green strapless satin Proenza Schouler gown gave me a touch of deja vu, back to last years Oscars, where Isla Fisher’s look was very similar.
The dress itself is beautiful, as she is in it, but she loses points for not being original.
Amy teamed her dress with an Art Nouveau French gold-mesh purse by Fred Leighton that would not even fit a credit card.
Worst Pregnant Award
After Cate Blanchett looked amazing in Vera Wang at the Spirit Awards, I had high hopes for her Oscars dress.
Unfortunately she let me down big time in this Dries Van Noten gown. What I particularly did not like was the neckline. It was a little bit to busy for me.
Her look was completed with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and a Roger Vivier clutch.
Worst Use Of Colour Award
Ryan Seacrest called the colour on Kelly Preston’s Roberto Cavalli dress “stop-light amber”. I just call it hideous.
Most Boring Award
Rosamund Pike RM by Roland Mouret dress is a pretty colour, but I was nothing but bored by it. It’s the Oscars, jazz it up a little.
When Will You Get It Right On The Big Night? Award
I love this Roberto Cavalli white dress, especially the snake-skin beaded detail, but I really disliked the way her breast sat in the dress. Very unflattering.
