In celebration of the Oscar-dress battle beginning and in commiseration over Sex And The City: The Movie being snubbed by the Oscar panel, we've decided to dedicate this fine Friday to the Alternative Oscars Style Awards. Because you know they should exist...
Best use of dance-wear
The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button
Has ever a wraparound cashmere cardi looked so gorgeous? Cate Blanchett made us want to install a ballet bar in our living room and actually learn how to plié. Something we never thought we'd say.
Best vintage accessories
Angelina Jolie, Changeling
Before she ends up in the institution, obv. The felt hats, leather gloves and boxy bags were enough to distract us from our it's-actually-quite-easy-to-forget-that-Angelina's-Angelina thoughts that were dominating our Changeling experience.
Most iconic scarf
Freida Pinto, Slumdog Millionaire
Didn't we tell you that this season is all about the ‘It' scarf? Case in point: Slumdog Millionaire is a riot of action and colour, yet it's the vision of Freida Pinto's mustard-coloured scarf fluttering around her gorgeous face that still sticks in the memory. V. Good. No wonder she wore that colour to the Golden Globes.
Best use of aprons
Who knew an apron could be so sexy? Well, if you're a 1950s-style housewife trapped in suburbia. We wouldn't recommend you try this at home. But it did fill our desperate Mad Men void.
