The Oscars red carpet 2008 – who wore what

Normally I’d be gushing about a dress I loved on the Oscar’s red carpet, but unfortunately not one of them stood out to me!

Who wore your favourite red carpet look?

Did you like the red trend on the red carpet?

My quick thoughts were: Heidi Klum’s custom made Dior dress was a little severe, Miley Cyrus looked very grown up in her red Valentino, Nicole Kidman looked a little awkward in her simple black Balenciaga gown (the bling was a tiny bit OTT), Anne Hathaway looked ok in her red Marchesa (flowers over and under the bust line?!), Amy Adams looked fabulous in Proenza Schouler, if not a little simple, while Cameron Diaz was a little ‘Heidi Klum’s Dior gown from the 2007 Emmy’s’, just in pale pink.

Why didn’t more people wear anyone wear Chanel, Dior, or Armani couture?!

  • Mia says:

    I agree, I don’t know why everyone is showing pictures of Heidi’s dress. There is too much skirt, too much around the back of her head, and her hair is in a huge bun.

  • Kitty says:

    I didn’t think much of the dresses in general.
    nothing stood out for me either.

    all rather bland…

    I wonder if due to the strike no one thought the Oscars would happen?
