If you caught a glimpse of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville, your first question — even before “What is she doing there?” — was “What is she wearing?!

From the neck up, Glanville went for a classic Old Hollywood look, with a softly curled updo, red lips and a Jeffrey Daniels Unique Designs diamond choker.

From the neck down, Glanville seems to have gotten confused about which awards show she was attending, showcasing her Golden Globes to maximum effect in a dress she reportedly designed herself.

The plunging sweetheart neckline, high-slit ruffled train and dishwater hue were all bold choices for someone who may have otherwise walked the red carpet completely unnoticed.

And attracting attention before the night even truly began is certainly worthy of an award in and of itself.

Tell us: What do you think of Glanville’s daring dress?

Why the heck is Brandi at the Oscars or even mentioned with actual actors/actresses? People has disrespreced all those in the acting profession by even mentioning her name.

She’s trying way too hard!

She looks like she should be walking Hollywood & Vine; she is no red carpet looking lady! She look like a hooka!

Lots of Advertising, Not Much Style. It’s sad to see pretty women do this to themselves.

Besides the boob part needing to be higher, this is a beautiful dress! I’ve seen way worse!

desperately seeking attention. i hope she invested in some strong double sided tape or somebody is getting fined

I thought it was pretty, different and interesting. Not the same old same old. I think writers are hard on the dress because of who is wearing it.
