Black and red appeared to be the popular colour of choice last night at the Oscars, which made for a lack lustre red carpet. But rather than focus on what the majority were wearing, let’s throw the spotlight on the outfits that, for better or worse, did make an impact.

The award for the most unusual outfit of the evening went to Marion Cotillard (pictured above), who sparkled in a figure hugging mermaid like, Jean Paul Gaultier frock.

Jennifer Garner opted for an elegant, strapless, Oscar de La Renta number, complete with lashings of fabric and tiered layers and accessorised with attention grabbing, statement jewellery.


Katherine Heigl was the epitomy of Hollywood glam, showing off her hourglass figure in a flattering one shouldered red gown by Escada.

Penelope Cruz risked ridicule and chose couture by Chanel, decorated with fashion’s current obsession , feathers.


And Heidi Klum, resembled royalty in a Dior creation that commanded attention!
