Each year awards season culminates in the giant spectacle that is the Academy Awards. Once upon a time, I could count on two or three truly awful looks on the red carpet each year, but the rise of the stylist means that celebrities, for the most part, no longer roam free, sartorially speaking. Take a gander at my list of the worst looks at the Oscars and remember a gentler time when celebs felt free to experiment. We likely won't be seeing these kinds of train wrecks again. Be sure to check out my best-dressed at the Oscars, also in Whoville.

Hilarious. I kind of like the Celine outfit and fedora. Is that wrong? That JPS look definitely made its way to my high school prom. All kinds of girls tried the two piece dress. Eeek.

No, not wrong at all. A few people have told me they like Celine's backward tux. As for Jada, if I had a body like that, I probably would wear a bikini every day.
