Some American celebrities have been accused of turning the Oscar event into a runway for the display of weird attires in a bid to look different and unique.

The world's biggest stars were gathered in Los Angeles yesterday for the 88th Annual Academy Awards in Hollywood. In an array of elaborate custom-made creations they transformed the red carpet into a runway, but not everyone managed to shine.

Leading the pack is former supermodel Heidi Klum, whose flowing purple creation missed the mark when it came to Oscar glamour. The floor-length gown was a disappointment from the blonde beauty, who is a red carpet veteran.

Best Supporting Actress nominee, Alicia Vikander and Sandy Powell also failed to impress on the red carpet.
