The Oscars for Fashion Disasters Go To...

Worst Dressed Female Nominee: We have a tie! Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Connelly will have to share this trophy. Nicole, who usually looks pretty good at these fashion-fests, was playing the invisible girl this time. Her Chanel dress was almost as pasty white as her skin and the overall effect made her look like a ghost from her flick, The Others. Jennifer Connelly may have won a little golden guy for Best Supporting Actress but she won't win one for Best Supporting Dress. It was a weird, just plain ugly, faded color with an unflattering neckline. Oh yeah, and did she have a heinous incident with her neighbor's cat while climbing into the limo? All the shredded fabric made me think something had attacked her dress.

Worst Dressed Male Nominee: Crusty Rusty wins hands-down. Russell Crowe was his usually happy self. (It's amazing this man's nickname isn't "Sunshine" because he always seems so perky - not!) It looked like someone found him sleeping in an alley in his suit and dragged him into the show without giving him a razor. Hey, beards aren't bad, I guess, but they do require some sort of maintenance. And this Aussie needs to start joggin' around the outback, he's not the Gladiator he used to be.

Worst Dressed Couple: Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman. Okay, they're new parents and you have to cut them some slack because it ain't easy caring for a newborn. But seriously, Ethan Hawke has looked like an early 1990s grunge-head since before it was cool.... Well, guess what? It's not cool anymore. Dude, shower already! And Uma's hair was way weird and her dress, way small in the top area. And why didn't someone - anyone - tell Ethan about that giant blob of lipstick on his cheek? I thought he'd been slugged by someone on the red carpet.

Worst Dressed Presenter: Gwyneth Paltrow. She was the scariest looking thing I have ever seen. Seriously. Her top was this puckered see-thru thing, her make-up made her look like a rabid raccoon, her top made her stomach look all rolly and freaky, her hair looked like something from The Sound of Music or the can of a Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate box and... did we mention her top? It still gives me the heebie-jeebies just thinking about it.

Dishonorable Mentions:

  • Jennifer Lopez

  • Heather Mills

  • Audrey Tatou - The French star of Amelie wore too many layers, not enough colors.

    I would also talk to them and tell them how you feel. If they still say they are signing you up for the membership as a 13 year old and it scares you that much I would just tell them to leave you off the membership until you do turn 13.

    I think every house has some drama going on in it everyday. In my house my Mom is a divorced mother of 3 kids. My older sister is away at college but when she was here there were yelling matches between my mom and her about staying out too late and getting a speeding ticket. Also with my mom being the only one raising us she has to work full time leaving me to watch my little brother who is 10 after he gets home from school. There also can be some battles that go on there and my mom doesn't want to here it from me or him when she walks through the door after work. I just try to not make it all personal and chalk it up to the stress of everyday life.

    Hey! Yeah, I'm also one of those girls who doesn't wear makeup either... maybe on a rare occasion? Or if pestered into it.  I definitely understand where you're coming from with this. My mom doesn't exactly try to get me to wear it, but is she did, I wouldn't be to happy out this either. Don't feel bad. You're beautiful no matter what; makeup doesn't  define you -unless, of course you let it...  She probably wants you to feel "more grown up,"  or thinks it's nice for a "young lady," or that'll "boost your confidence." I don't know, there could be plenty of reasons.  If you feel uncomfortable the best thing to do would be to talk to her about it. Respectfully tell how you really feel and make sure she's listening.
