“…and the Oscar goes to…” Every year the biggest names in the entertainment industry come together in Los Angeles to celebrate their talents and accomplishments over the past year at the glamorous Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars. While celebrities fret over nominations and speeches, millions of people around the world tune in to see their favorite actors and actresses, directors and producers, musicians, writers and crew members take home the coveted award.
Long before the awards, however, many fans tune in to watch their favorite celebrities take the red carpet in what has become an unofficial parade of fortune, fame and vanity.

But, amid all of the dazzling smiles and witty comments, the fashion world is in a whirlwind as they dedicate hours of post-Oscar television to decide who was the best dressed and who was the worst.
