Countdown to the Oscars: Fashion Preview

Celebrity fashion’s biggest night is quickly approaching, and “Extra” got a front row seat for the glitz, the glamour and the blinding bling at this year’s Oscar Flashback Fashion Show.

Vogue magazine’s Editor at Large Andre Leon Talley told us to expect a return to old Hollywood this year, with lots of figure flattering gowns and coiffed hair.

Andre also predicted there will be a few showstoppers. “Cate Blanchett will step it up,” he told us. “Jennifer Hudson is the girl to watch; she’ll shine. Angelina Jolie can wear a cotton dress from Wal-Mart and look great.”

Jeweler to the stars, Neil Lane, told us to expect a rainbow of rocks on the red carpet, including orange, brown and tangerine.

Stay tuned to “Extra” as we count down to the Academy Awards!
