There were a lot of beautiful gowns on display at Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony, as our Booth Moore reported. But at least two actresses got their own wardrobe-related Twitter accounts (set up, of course, by excited folks in the Twitterverse). Angelina Jolie’s stunning black Atalier Versace gown with its thigh-high slit prompted @angiesrightleg. And a possible wardrobe malfunction as Jennifer Lopez was presenting an award got its own provocative handle. Because JLo often wears very-low-cut gowns to the Oscars (this one was custom made for her by Zuhair Marad), this slip (if it happened -- and her stylist says it didn’t) may have been only a matter of time.
