    Great resource list.

    You placed Meryl Streep on your worst-dressed; whom Yahoo said nothing negative about in their slide-show probably because she is acting 'Royalty' from wayback. But altho' Yahoo gave Maggie Gyllenhaal kudos for "being one of the few who was willing to take a step outside the generic Oscars red carpet box" actually, I think Meryl was the heroine to step out of the box, by asking an Proj.Runway designer to make her a dress for the occasion; this is really a forward-thinking politically correct thing to do in these times. These people traditionally spend five figures on these designer dresses, and often their publicists and stylists tell them what to wear, with no personal creativity and contribution, it seems (and they're artists and costume aficionados for chrissake!). Not to mention how and where these dresses and fabrics were made, and how it often promotes sweatshops and forms of 'slavery' in the garment industry. (Loved Robert Downey Jr.'s fun-loving color approach)

    I have to respectfully disagree about Ms. Streep. I think she is, undoubtedly, one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. But the color of the fabric was anything but complimentary to her skin tone, made her hair look far more yellow than blonde, and the overall silhouette was frumpy on her. She's far too lively to look frumpy.

    Also, most of the celebrities on the red carpet pay absolutely nothing for their attire, jewelry and accessories. Almost all of them are loans from the designers, which is marketing on their part.

    All of that said, you bring up a good point about the ethics of clothing, and true, far too many garments are not made with fair trade in mind. But "regular joes" are just as much at fault, if not more, for the perpetuation of sweatshop garments than celebrities.
