The 2012 Oscar Nominations were released today, and, as usual, I’m half way to underwhelmed. But then I began to think of the red carpet and all the praising and bashing opportunities it will bring. And since our invitations here at FashionIndie always seem to get lost in the mail, I took the liberty of putting together a 2012 Academy Awards outfit for myself. Love it or hate it in the Look of the Day.
