It's the big one. The power pairing. Brad's lady faces his boyfriend's boyfriend lady in an imaginary red carpet showdown. As much jumping around and evil stare training as Angelina Jolie has from Tomb Raider and Mr. & Mrs. Pitt Smith, George Clooney's plus one, Stacy Keibler, actually used to kick REAL ass for a living. My money's on the Keibster for a physical throw-down, but it's a level playing field fashion-wise. [caption id="attachment_1221" align="aligncenter" width="610" caption="Come on girls, show up those boyfriends. Get your glamour ON."][/caption] Stacy has done us proud on the red carpet since stepping on the George Clooney girlfriend-merry-go-round. With every appearance she has stood out from the other gals, keeping it classy, chic and simple. She did classic red Valentino for the Golden Globes and a black Marchesa for the SAGs, so my hope is that George will give her permission to  go out of her comfort zone and wear some knock-out glamour. Stace's paid her dues. She might be close to her use-by date. It's time to shine. [caption id="attachment_1218" align="aligncenter" width="610" caption="There are plenty of waitresses in the wings - shine on Stacy, in Carolina Herrera Fall 2012, Reem Acra Spring 2012 or Elie Saab Spring 2012."][/caption] Angelina doesn't need to take risks. Angelina doesn't need a dress to make her shine. Angelina barely has to apply make-up and blow dry her hair. She's ANGELINA. With that face she could show up in one of Jennifer Lopez's old velour tracksuits and still hit the best dressed list. I'm not saying she's lazy when it comes to fashion, okay, I am. She can be lazy when it comes to dressing for premieres and awards ceremonies. Angie time and time again falls back on black and grey and is a little too reliant on french bridal up-dos. What's that I hear you say, she's a mom to six kids with a seventh allegedly on the way? Sorry people, she's a multi-millionaire with nannies up the yin-yang so she's never left short of forty winks and totally has the time to get dolled up for these shin-digs. So what will she un-enthusiastically wear to the Oscars? We got a little over-excited with dress choices for Angelina. We hope she either embraces the '20s/'30s trend, a killer tuxedo with some even killerer jewelry or brings some colour. [caption id="attachment_1219" align="aligncenter" width="610" caption="If she goes dark (likely) Angelina can channel 1930s glamour in Gucci Fall 2012, Badgley Mischka Fall 2012 or Temperley Spring 2012"][/caption] Remember that yellow Cannes dress? Angelina, make an effort. Do it for us. [caption id="attachment_1220" align="aligncenter" width="610" caption="Be it her go-to grey or a huge splash of colour, we hope Jolie gets a gay guy and not her house keeper to do her hair: Valentino Spring 2012, Elie Saab Spring 2012 or Michael Kors Fall 2012."][/caption] That wraps up BOHOMOTH's Oscar Fashion Face-Offs.

    L to the OVE this, Shiny.

    Can’t wait to see what they wear tonight. ‘Wonder how much longer Stace has left on her contract as George’s plus one?
