Tilda, I loved you in The Chronicles of Narnia, but seriously... sweetie... what's up with the one-sleeved velour dress?
Tilda's Academy Awards ensemble made me think that Christian's chocolate with black lace prom dress from PR4 really wasn't bad at all. And it was. Bad. Just like his hair.
No, the only thing more bizarre than Ms. Swinton's Oscar gown is this clip that my buddy Don just showed me.
This is Debbie Reynolds from sometime in the mid-60's singing If I Had a Hammer.
That's right, Princess Leia's mom sings a protest song. While sporting a beehive hairdo. And she has backup dancers. As one commenter said on YouTube...
"This is a three ring circus - - and a train wreck - - all in one."
Eat your heart out Peter, Paul and Mary.
P.S. Ms. Swinton made up for her odd appearance in her Oscar acceptance speech by mentioning George Clooney's Bat-suit from his one-time stint as The Dark Knight in Batman & Robin. Tilda said...
"Clooney, you know, the seriousness and the dedication to your art, seeing you climb into that rubber batsuit from Batman And Robin, the one with the nipples, every morning under your costume, on the set, off the set, hanging upside-down at lunch, you rock, man."
Perhaps Ms. Swinton was wearing Uma Thurman's Poison Ivy costume under that monstrosity.
One never knows. Do one?
