I have been watching the Academy Awards for as long as I can remember. When that fateful Sunday was approaching I would even go as far as to dress up a bit for school. I am a sucker for glamour and a lover of great movies. My mind works a bit like a filing cabinet: putting away the most interesting or influential bits of meaningless trivia to be used for later. So, when I think back on red carpet looks that made it into my memory banks, a lot of them were on the worst dressed list. But hey, I'm okay with that; because those people weren't afraid to take a risk and some of it really was avant garde. If it was me, I would be a red carpet risk taker. You only have one big night...you better make it count!
