-------

A thin line between love and hate? Not so when it comes to memorable red-carpet dresses, where there’s often a Grand Canyon-sized chasm with us fashion wonks on one side and everyone else on the other. Check out our new feature on the polarizing gowns that we j’adore-d and everyone else abhorred. Which side are you on? Let us know below.

    Yea, yea, very nice, indeed… I’m always looking forward to your pre-Oscar stuff. It was about time someone brought out a list like this! Though, I think you’ve forgotten to mention some outings; for example, what about Uma Thurman’s folkloric Lacroix ensemble (2004)? Or Theron’s bow-alarm at the 2006 ceremony? Those ”critics” don’t have a clue anyway. Who made those stupid terms like ”style police”, ”fashion judge” etc?? They think they’re SUCH experts, but, in general, what they do is spitting on fashion-forward choices and praising almost every safe-as-it-gets plunge-neck gown. So we should let them call Marion Cotillard The Little Mermaid and laugh at Renée Zellweger’s Golden Globes outfit. It’s the only thing they can do.

    The swan costume is not so great. It looks as if she is going to go ice skating at the age of 5.

    I think if the person is willing to try a new style and have the confidence to wear it. more power to them.
