A Guide to All the Quick Costume Changes During the Oscars

If you blinked (or ran off to go to the bathroom during some of the musical numbers) you may have missed the quickie wardrobe changes during last night's Oscars ceremony. Several actresses--like Anne Hathaway and Charlize Theron--changed out of their red carpet gowns into, well, other red carpet-ready gowns, for their on-stage performances.

While we're used to runway models doing these kinds of changes, dressing a celeb for an event like the Oscars is usually an hours-long process, which makes it that much more impressive that these stars and their stylists had to switch it up mid-show. (Imagine the backstage entourages on hand!) With the exception of Catherine Zeta-Jones, all of the swaps were generally for other designer gowns and weren't too costumey (prompting me to wonder, "Why bother?" But I suppose if I had the chance to wear multiple gorgeous gowns, I'd definitely do it. Plus, there's the sweat factor while singing/dancing.).
