umathurman_WTF_large.jpg Until she sported this monstrosity, Uma Thurman had an almost unspoilt Oscars fashion history. She redefined Oscar fashion when she turned up looking pared-down in lilac Prada in the late 90s, and continuously strutted the red carpet in unusual but fabulous choices in following years, including a voluminous Chanel two piece and a plunging 3/4 sleeved gothic number.

Then, two years ago it all went pear-shaped. Could it be put down to a messy break-up and too much time spent in close proximity to Quentin Tarantino? Or did she just love Pirates Of The Caribbean a bit too much? Her Christian Lacroix number was an absolute train wreck, and all the fashion pundits agreed. Of course, About.com reports that she deliberately set out to be the worst-dressed that year because she was fed up of people always looking the same. That would definitely explain a lot!
