How wonderful to wake up to wall-to-wall Oscar frocks coverage on the telly... don't know about you, but my faves included Cate Blanchett's metallic charcoal Armani number, Nicole Kidman's red Balenciaga and Anne Hathaway's black and white strapless dress.
As is now traditional at figleaves.com, we've whipped up a quick guide to what to wear under your Oscar dress (for while we might not take regular sashays down the red carpet, we can certainly take inspiration from those who do).

Known for her quirky, high fashion style, Maggie Gyllenhaal was nevertheless not too proud to admit to Sky's red carpet reporter that her impressively svelte post-baby figure had a bit of help from a good pair of control knickers. Here are a couple of our favourites, from Spanx and Miraclesuit. Click here for more.
She's been responsible for a couple of Oscar horrors in the past, but here's Gwyneth Paltrow looking lovely in a tea-coloured backless dress. Backless doesn't have to be tricky - self-adhesive bras like this one by The Natural are good for smaller cup sizes; Splendour has a good DD+ option. Click for more.
If there's one fashion tip we can take from the Oscars, it's that strapless (and one-shoulder) dresses will be big for this season - Anne Hathaway (pictured), Penelope Cruz, Naomi Watts and Cameron Diaz were just a few of the style setters showing off their A-list shoulders yesterday. Try these from Le Mystere or, for DD+ sizes, Panache. More here.
