Rate the Oscars 2012

Last year instead of doing a ‘Rate the Dress’ the day after the Oscars, I did a round-up of the Oscars looks with my rating. It’s quite fun for me to have a chance to rate things, and you seemed to enjoy it, and the informal vote on facebook was very much in favour of it, so I’m doing it again this year. I have to say, while I liked a lot of this years Oscar’s dresses, there weren’t a lot of really interesting dresses.  It was a dull and boring lot overall.  But there were a few I can talk about.
