What Would You Wear To The Oscars?


The Oscars or the Academy Awards have given us some gorgeous fashion to oogle at over the years. A few examples above from different eras - 1930s Mary Pickford 1940s Gene Tierney 1950s Audrey Helpburn (large pic) 1960s Anne Bancroft and Sidney Pointer 1970s Mia Farrow 1980s Molly Ringwald 1990s Ashley Judd 2008 Amy Adams - show that classic design never goes out of fashion. For more photos go to the official Oscar website.

If you'd like your own covetable outfit there are many independent online sellers who can frock you up for any formal occasion. Here are a few that I like. Just click on the pics to go to these designers' stores.

Or if you'd like to walk the red carpet one day as a film maker, you could make your own indepentent film. In the closing paragraph of Michel Gondry’s book You’ll like this film because you’re in it, the author offers to send all readers a free digital camera if they send him a proposal for a community movie.

I would want to wear a black, jet embellished, vintage 1920s dress. I'd even want it partly ripped and deconstructed, I want an authentic 1920s dress!!!
