Ellen Degeneres Gets Glam For the Oscars

02/06/2007 at 06:12 PM ET

Oscar fans brace yourselves: Ellen DeGeneres just may pull a Beyoncé. The ultra-casual talk-show host will leave her khakis and sneakers at home Feb. 25 when she helms the Oscars, thanks to names like Gucci, and is – ready for this? – considering multiple outfit changes.

“Everybody’s sending me stuff,” she tells W magazine in its March issue. “Gucci sent me this amazing package with all kinds of different designs and different fabrics, in a beautiful box with my name engraved in gold plate. I picked some fabrics … They’re making me something. Zac Posen made me a gorgeous tuxedo. Viktor & Rolf is making me something. … I wasn’t planning on changing because it’s just different suits, but I may do it, because I’d like to thank them all for making me stuff.”

Love, love, LOVE Ellen!
I’m sure she’ll look amazing – I can’t think of a single better person to host the Oscars.

I’ve never seen her wear a dress. Maybe she will to be different.

Ellen is such a genuine person, and she is still SOOO funny~ She is really humble and very kind. She has the kind of figure that looks great in clothes (and)whatever she decides to wear…She’ll look great.. Her personality always shines through~

I must say, I am VERY curious about how she’ll look dressed up! Don’t get me wrong, I think Ellen is awesome, but some women just don’t look good in dresses and heels, and I think Ellen might be one of those types. She’s kinda like Whoopi Goldberg in the sense that she looks good in slacks. It suits her better. I hope I’m wrong and she looks hot!

She is such a survivor! And her show is hilarious! Awards shows are so much better when people who are actually funny host it, instead of unfunny people trying to hard to make everyone laugh. I think its a great idea for her to change outfits. Just beacause she doesnt do the whole “gown” thing doesnt mean she cant be glam! GO ELLEN!

kelly on

yea im totally glad shes getting glammed up! good for her! it would be even more shocking for her to wear a dress though hahaha…..

Marina on

She’s gonna do great, any outfit she’d dress she would look, gorgeous…..
You’re gonna be an excellent host…

Elda on

rachel b. on

She is goofy, gay and she be retired and acts like a humble person but is really messed up.

Jackson on

I love Ellen! She is such a hoot and so genuine. I know that she will look fabulous in whatever she wears. She’s the greatest host and I can’ wait to see her.

Rachel B- what are you talking about??

Crystal Beach girl on

Yeah Rachel B, could you be a little clearer??? I know a lot of us are so eager to say our opinions and end up forgetting to type some of the words. I usually can figure out what is trying to be said but this one has got me. I’m looking forward to the Oscars myself. It should be interesting what she is going to be like.

Rio on

Yeah what Crystal Beach girl said -> ? WHAT ?!

I think Ellen is waaaay cool. She’s funnier than heck, and she’ll do an amazing job hosting the Oscars!

Amanda-Lake Charles,LA. on

LOVE HER!!! LOVE HER!!! LOVE HER!!!I’m sure she’ll look great!!! What a positive spirit she has!I Tivo her EVERYDAY!! Never miss a show and the same will go for the Oscars :)

Carolina on

Ellen is so incredibly funny! She is a talented comedian and will be an even more amazing host.

Crystal Beach girl on

Huh, Rio?? What are you saying? I think Ellen is very funny. Let me say it slowly for you. I A M L O O K I N G F O R W A R D T O T H E O S C A R S T O O !

rachel b. on

Stop rideculing me! I mean’t, what I said, and she is not high on my list as an actress or comedian. She is fashion for glam in a gay sense, I guess.

Meaghan on

I am actually very anxious to see Ellen with a wardrobe change! I think she’ll look amazing! Something different, change is good. But, I must say this picture of her ^ does her no justice what so ever. And please, people (I dont mean to be rude BUT) consider getting a life and stop arguing about people’s opinions on blogs?!

Jeannette Baldwin on

I love Ellen too but someone NEEDS to dress her. I cannot stand her “curled up” toed shoes or the scarves she sometimes wears. It makes me think of some 50’s Hollywood director minus the smoking jacket and pipe. I also don’t care for her low-riding slacks.

melatonindosage on

i watched Ellen Degeneres show whenever i can. she has a very good and funny talk show.

Arthritistreatmentlab on

Ellen DeGeneres is one of the best talk show host that i have ever seen. She is smart and funny too
