Worst Dressed Red Carpet

'Tis a surprise most pleasant that the majority of gowns paraded on the Oscars red carpet last night were pretty and flattering. Of course there are always a few celebrities who get it wrong and end up looking like they dressed themselves (goodness forbid). Thus it is with a heavy heart that Reese Witherspoon, whom we depend on for her usually flawless looks, tops our worst dressed list in an electric blue and black draped mess of a gown by Rodarte. I feel like someone punched me in the eye and Reese looks black and blue, blurry and puffy. Among the small flock of mermaid dresses on the red carpet, Beyonce's black and gold flower print Armani Prive gown looked like a large gilded carpet. Someone please physically restrain her from the clothing rack with the mermaid styles already! I'm a big fan of curves, as long as they don't appear to grow as the night wears on. Goldie Hawn, who is in slight denial about her 60+ age, looked like a tropical fish with a missing head. She should have grown her wrinkles-hiding hairstyle just a tad passed her waist to hide her ill-fitting pancake top.
