30 Greatest Oscar Fashion Flops Of All Time

In addition to the films and the accolades, the Oscars have a long, illustrious history as a place where questionable celebrity fashion goes to die. While assembling our Academy Awards fashion flops list, we realized that, sure, there are always going to be standbys like Cher or Nicole Kidman who reach for the stars, only to land on the Worst-Dressed List. More surprising, however, are the normally smoking-hot stars who somehow manage to biff it super hard on the red carpet. Scarlett Johansson? Kate Winslet? Natalie Portman? Were your stylists out sick … forever? We also discovered that 2004 was an inexplicably terrible year for Oscars gowns. We have no idea why. Don’t take our word for it, though; check out our gallery of worst Oscars looks ever, and tell us which outfit makes you cringe the most.

The Hottest Awards Season Accessory: Golden Globes


Tonight the Hollywood Foreign Breast Press Association recognized actors and filmmakers at the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Tinseltown’s sexiest were on the red carpet, including Halle Berry, Christina Hendricks of “Mad Men,” and PreciousMariah Carey. But we hardly noticed their designer gowns, gigantic jewels, and flawless makeup, because we were too busy focusing on that other enormous accessory of the evening: their, uh, globes. Plunging necklines were abound tonight and we’ve got photographic evidence. Warning: lovely ladies lumps and bumps ahead. [Photos: Getty Images]

Heidi Montag: I’m An Iconic Sex Symbol


We really shouldn’t be surprised at anything that comes out of Heidi Montag’s mouth – after all, she thinks Spencer Pratt is a hot, marriageable catch. But what is news to us, is that her Playboy spread was in fact part of Heidi’s own self-mythologizing plans.

“I wasn’t nervous [about the shoot] because I’d got my body and mind into shape for it. My aim is to become an iconic sex symbol, and the Playboy shoot is the first step,” she told Closer magazine.

Sorry – our mistake, Heidi. We didn’t know you were joining the hallowed ranks of Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren and Brigitte Bardot! Thanks for letting us know. We only anticipate (with horrified head-in-hands mode) what your next “iconic” step will be. And we can’t remember any of these legendary ladies promising to get “triple X” boobs for their husbands. Or pole dancing for the cameras. [Photo: WireImage]


Style Wars: Cruz Vs. Cotillard

Spanish bombshell Penelope Cruz became Spain’s first female Oscar winner for her performance in Vicky Christina Barcelona and French hottie Marion Cotillard became the first actress to win one for a French language film (2007’s La Vie en Rose). The actresses will star alongside Daniel Day-Lewis — not to mention Nicole Kidman, Judi Dench, Sophia Loren and Kate Hudson — in the musical Nine, to be released Nov. 25.

Both Cruz and Cotillard have attended premieres and parties at Cannes wearing elegant dresses and gowns. Despite a bout with food poisoning, Cruz wore a lilac gown while walking the red carpet for Broken Embraces, her latest Pedro Almodovar film. She’s also been spotted in a strapless, skin-colored dress and a cleavage-baring white ensemble. Cotillard has played it more conservatively — going for ultra minimal, elegant black and blue dresses.

Which actress has the best style at Cannes this year? Vote above.
