Listen, we know Ms. Cyrus wrote a song in a nominated cartoon—sorry, animated feature—about a runaway dog or something, but don’t you think that’s an awfully big dress for someone to be wearing who doesn’t really have a reason to be at the Oscars in the first place? There’s just a lot going on with that outfit. You’ve got the tiers, the seashell belt, the jewel encrusting…we mean, the bling goes on. And while Miley pulled of the princess look better than others on the red carpet (ahem, Sarah Jessica), we still think it was a bit over the top. Are we behind the times? Is she totally working it? Do we need to watch more Hannah Montana to get down with it? Tell us.
