Oscars 2011: FAIL! Nicole Kidman

Let's start with the positives. Her shoes are a pretty colour. And her hair is back to being red which suits her much better than blonde. And her necklace is nice.

That's it. Because we can't but help look at the dress and wonder what went wrong. On paper it seems perfect - Christian Dior, Nicole Kidman, the Oscars. But it doesn't. It's too long in a bad way and the weird sticky out bit at the waist looks unnecessary. It looks a bit like a table cloth that was hastily stapled together in some kind of Changing Rooms nightmare. Wait, did Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen dress her? Is that what the problem is here?
