A round-up of stylish Oscar clicks

Oscar night is nigh, and if you know me at all, you know that I’m mostly in it for the outfits, right? Lots of cheery chat going on about Oscar-night fashion; here are a few of my favorites:

  • This charming graphic features every dress worn by a Best Actress winner. Love how, for decades, the most popular designer was “Unknown.” And did you know that Sissy Spacey accepted her 1981 award in a jumpsuit? I didn’t.
  • Best slideshow of the week: “25 Years of Questionable Hair at the Oscars.” No explanation necessary.
  • The New York Times has a fun “Red Carpet Project,” documenting 15 years — and 591 outfits — of Oscar fashion.
  • Vanity Fair documents “Their First Oscars” — photos of 10 current nominees on their first trip down the red carpet; including 19-year-old Leonardo DiCaprio, a big-haired-in-the-’90s Sandra Bullock, and evidence that Cate Blanchett was every bit as chic 15 years ago as she is now.
  • Here’s a “fashion showdown” between supporting actress nominees Lupita Nyong’o and Jennifer Lawrence — who’ve been wearing surprisingly similar outfits this season (including matching strapless black jumpsuits).
  • Vogue names its best-dressed at the Oscars over the past decade — and their slideshow begins with Julianne Moore in green, so all’s right with the world.

Join me on Oscar night — I’ll be live-chatting all the way through, starting with the red carpet at 4:30 p.m., right here at P&P. See you then!
