There are only three weeks left to go before the Academy Awards but the ceremony’s leading ladies are taking an oh so casual approach to what they’re going to wear, starting with Sandra Bullock who laughs that she’ll wear a trashbag if she needs to.
“If I have to wear a trash bag, I’ll stud it with rhinestones and I’ll make it work,” the Blind Side star said yesterday at the Academy Awards annual nominees luncheon at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, reports E! Online.
“I’m not panicky for some reason. I think it’s because there are so many beautiful things out there [and] someone will not want to wear it and I’ll get it.”
Meanwhile, fellow first-time nominee, An Education star Carey Mulligan, said she doesn’t even know what she’ll be wearing to Sunday’s BAFTA Awards, let alone the Oscars.
“I’ve got my dream dresses in my head but I don’t know who will make them,” she said.
She does, however, know her hair color will change. “This is something I’m working on,” she said, referring to her blonde locks. “This is a work in progress.”
And Gabourey Sidibe, the breakout star of Precious, hasn’t even begun her red-carpet prep.
“I haven’t even started looking at colors or anything like that.” she said. “I got a bunch of sketches through emails and I’ve said I’ve looked through them but I lied.”
But as the ceremony nears, Gaby is feeling the pressure to find the right gown: “My stomach’s hurting a little over it,” she said. “I’m a little scared.”
Meanwhile, Crazy Heart‘s Maggie Gyllenhaal is contemplating wearing vintage after donning a ’70s Yves Saint Laurent dress to the Oscar lunch yesterday.
“I think it’s probably made around the time I was born and it’s the Seventies like the movie.”
