2014 Oscars: Red carpet grades: Lupita, Angelina, Sandra, Liza and more

It was wall-to-wall nude and black with a few notable exceptions

What do you think? Pharrell Williams wears shorts to the Oscars

It's either a bold move or a fashion fail

So, Pharrell Williams decided that wearing that oversized Vivienne Westwood ranger hat did not create enough buzz. Thus, we get shorts at the Oscars. Shorts. With dress shoes, without socks.
