2014 Oscars

See What It’s Like To Work On The Oscars Red Carpet In Just 45 Seconds

The one thing you need to know about covering red carpets is this: It is every bit as glamorous as it looks and also it is not glamorous at all. It’s a weird biz, honestly: one that finds you peeing in a port-o-pottie in a ball gown minutes before interviewing Benedict Cumberbatch. One second you’re yukking it up with a walking cover of Vanity Fair magazine, and the next your shoving Kind bars into your mouth on a bus back to a parking garage. Not that I am complaining – I am well aware that my job entails standing still in reasonably warm weather with an electric stick in my hand as beautiful humans talk to me. I am very, very grateful for this and I love every second of it. (Almost as much as I love Kind bars.) But it’s a shame we never get to see the unpolished behind-the-scenes side of red carpets, because it’s equally as weird and fun as the carpets themselves.

Please, allow me to solve this problem.

Her rags-to-riches story is as close as a gal can get to a real-life Cinderella story. Our biggest question: will Jared Leto be her Prince Charming?

Pharrell‘s self-described “Gandalf hat” was the most memorable style moment of the Grammys earlier this year. He didn’t rock any headwear at the Oscars tonight, but, in true Pharrell fashion, he hit the red carpet with a look that has everybody talking again. Yes, those are shorts—SHORTS—the superstar artist and producer is wearing with his tuxedo. The crazy part is, they don’t look half bad. In fact, they don’t look bad at all.

These Oscar Outfits Are So Bad They’re Beyond Worst Dressed

View Photo Gallery

The Oscars and “worst-dressed” don’t go hand in hand for most celebrities. After all, the most rich, beautiful and famous people in the world converge on Hollywood to give us a glorious night of red carpet fashion. Unfortunately, not everyone shows up to the Oscars looking good. In fact, some of our favorite celebrities make massive fashion faux pas. Julia Roberts, Kerry Washington & more are the worst-dressed celebrities of the 2014 Oscars red carpet.
