This is how I feel when I see some of the dresses that are worn on awards shows:

Granted, there are some classy ladies that show up in gorgeous gowns, but there are also these:

Lady Gaga, 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards
This looks like a flying saucer, but then I've always suspected 
she was an ET!

Lady Gaga again, recently in London.
This dress is made of bubble making machines &
actually blows bubbles!

M.I.A., 2010 Spike TV 'Scream' Awards
He wore this as a response to the claim that the 
burka was repressive to women.  
Someone should have repressed him!

Erin Wasson, 2012 InStyle Golden Globes After-Party
There must have been a terrible accident on the way to the party!

Margaret Cho, 2004 Grammys
This reminds me of a friend who said after staying 
in a lush resort in the jungle in Kenya, 
"You had to be careful not to step in peacock poop 
on your way to the dining room!"

Bjork, 2000 Cannes
I have some Santa table decorations that open like this!

Toni Braxton, 2001 Grammys
A satin poncho with a belt?

Lil' Kim, 2012 'Return on the Queen" Tour
Why does this make me want some Kellogg's Frosted Flakes?

Nicki Minaj, 2012 Grammys
The first female pope?
(Her date was dressed as the ACTUAL pope!)

Annie Lennox, 1995 Grammys
Welcome to the Mickey Mouse Club!

Jennifer Lopez, 2000 Grammys
How does it stay in place--Scotch Tape?

Rose McGowan, 2010 MTV Video Music Awards
I have NO idea what to say about this one,
except that she should have worn a dress!

And some that will NEVER be forgotten:

Bjork, 2001 Academy Awards
A swan or the ugly duckling?

Lady Gaga, 2010 MTV Video Music Awards
Of course those are real slabs of meat--
hamburger would have fallen off!

Cher, 1988 Academy Awards
I think she deserves a category of her own!

Cher, 1986 Academy Awards
I wish I had HER body!

An interesting fashion statement for the mature woman.

 And, as if those weren't funny enough, some cartoons:

On a totally different subject, 
congratulations to Diana Nyad!!

It occurred to me lately that nothing has occurred to me lately----fishducky
