After two Bond songs and one adorable, award-winning fall, the Academy Awards are (finally) over. While many of tonight’s winners might celebrate by spilling shrimp cocktail and one too many glasses of champagne all over their haute couture, there were plenty of stars who showed up to tonight’s shindig already looking like a hot mess.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville‘s dress was completely ill-fitting, looking as if she had strapped a pair of Playboy bunny ears across her chest, while Oscar winner Anne Hathaway risked getting upstaged by her own nipples (which put on a very strong supporting performance, might we add). We love us some Helena Bonham Carter… we only wish she seemed to enjoy posing in that gown (help her out, Tim!). They can’t all be winners, sure, but tonight’s show proved many of Hollywood’s best and brightest–Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Garner–can suffer from red carpet fatigue, phoning it in with uninspired, ridiculously expensive versions of gowns we saw frenemies wear at our high school prom. Sigh. There’s always next year?
