The glamorous, glittering fashion parade that dazzles and sometimes baffles the millions of fans has almost come to supersede the prizes at the annual Academy Awards. On the 75th anniversary of the awards, this title presents insider fashion gossip ...
and expert style analysis for a dazzling display of hundreds of amazing gowns through history. The array of outfits donned by the silver screen's brightest stars on the biggest night of the year is absolutely fabulous. Glamorous get-ups, outrageous mistakes and sartorial risks that paid off are collected and elegantly presented in this history of celebrity fashion. All the critics' choices and pans are here: from the gardening clothes worn by Katharine Hepburn for her Oscar appearance in 1974 to Bjork's infamous swan dress of 2001. Unfortunate fashion statements like Demi Moore's combination of bicycles shorts and a split-front gown, or any one of Cher's Bob Mackie get-ups are given repeat performances and little known details are revealed, such as Sharon Stone pairing a Gap turtleneck with giant diamond cluster earring from Van Cleef and Arples and a Valentino skirt, or the red fox fur false eyelashes that Jennifer Lopez batted at the 2001 ceremonies.
