Oscars Fashion Misses or When Bad Dresses Happen to Good People

Yes, Yes, Yes, The Daily Telegraph U.K. is at it again! Apparently not as bad as those which they labeled "no-nos," but I guess worthy of some added commentary. Though there are two or three who managed to escape the usual comments.

While I'm luke warm on a most, I disagree with their assessment of Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman & Renee Zellweger....see what you think.

KELLY OSBOURNE IN TONY WARD COUTURESo busy, too fussy... Kelly-O's style is off-centre once again.

KELLY ROWLAND IN DONNA KARANThere's something very conflicting about the direction Kelly's dress wants to take; this is what we'll call a sartorial crossroads.

ZOE SALDANA IN ALEXIS MABILLEWe really want to love this gown, honestly, but the fussy bow-belt is a touch too much.

JANE FONDA IN ATELIER VERSACEA real opinion divider of a design, we admire Fonda's embrace of bold colour, but we wish she'd left the waist-cinching detail on that cruise-liner...

OLIVIA MUNN IN MARCHESAYes, this might be Marchesa, but we can't help feeling like this gown is an ill-advised throwback from some studio's costume department...
REESE WITHERSPOON IN LOUIS VUITTONThis gown just doesn't flatter Witherspoon enough - OK, she's not long had a baby, but how about celebrating those new mother curves?

CATHERINE ZETA JONES IN ZUHAIR MURADThere's no escaping the fact that the bottom tier of Catherine's dress makes us think of an ice-skater...

NICOLE KIDMAN IN L'WREN SCOTTEmerging from the carpet like blazing-hot tarmac with a few old chandeliers thrown in for good measure, Kidman misses the mark once more.

NAOMIE HARRIS in a Michael Badger gown made from recycled sources Harris really let us down in this old-fashioned mustard concoction. Should that be 'recycled sauces'?
