The countdown to the 86th annual Academy Awards has begun, with the glittering Oscars ceremony taking place on Sunday, March 2.

This is the night that all of the industry's fashion divas and elegant leading ladies make sure they shine the brightest on the red carpet. However, some struck out now and then and surprisingly, even the most stylish ones do end up making the odd faux pas.

Costume designer Lizzy Gardiner turned heads in 1994, when she wore a gown made of American Express credit cards. Outlandish? Yes. But it did work... Gardiner was nominated for her work in The Adventures of Priscilla: Queen of the Desert. And she won.

However, the ultimate fashion disaster in Oscar history must go to singer and actress Bjork - for her Swan Dress. She even pretended to lay an egg on the red carpet.

"What surprises me is that they thought I was trying to fit in but got it wrong, that I expected everyone to be wearing peacock dresses and gorilla outfits! What they don't mention is that I had brought six ostrich eggs with me and I was dropping them carefully on the red carpet. But other people's bodyguards kept picking them up and saying in their thick American accents, ''Scuse me, ma'am, you dropped this,'" she confessed in an interview with GQ magazine in 2011.
