Calling all fashionistas: Oscar wants you. The film academy is adding a "Project Runway" element to the Oscars this year by asking the public to vote on which dress the trophy presenter will wear.

The academy tapped seven emerging designers to create gowns for the competition. They unveiled their entries Tuesday during the annual Oscar fashion show at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' headquarters.

The winning dress "will be seen on Oscar night probably more than any other gown on the red carpet," said Oscar fashion coordinator Patty Fox. She and show producers Laurence Mark and Bill Condon selected the competing designers.

The stars were hot, literally, on the red carpet at tonight's 60th annual Emmys awards -- and that meant the sweeping trend on A-list actresses were updos.

Heidi Klum wore one and so did Mariska Hargitay. Same 'do for Marcia Cross, Vanessa Williams, Julia Louis Dreyfus and Sandra Oh.

The perfect accessory? Dangling earrings, such as Debra Messing in 19th century diamond fan-pendants from Fred Leighton.

The red carpet at the 60th Emmy Awards on Sunday will surely be a parade of beautiful people wearing beautiful things -- the faux pas of years past are out.

These days, designers use the carpet as a second runway and stylists keep their clients picture perfect. Still, armchair fashion critics want to have their say, even if it's only to say how great everyone looks.

Here are some buzz-worthy candidates to keep an eye on:

The hottest accessory on the Oscar red carpet was a baby bump.

Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Jessica Alba and most noticeably Cate Blanchett wore theirs under designer gowns.

For Cody, diamonds are the soul of her shoe issues

The shoes fit — and cost $1 million — but Diablo Cody didn’t wear ’em.

Fancy-footwear designer Stuart Weitzman had selected the Oscar-nominated ‘‘Juno’’ screenwriter to wear his specially designed $1 million diamond-encrusted Retro Rose shoes on the red carpet, but Cody opted to wear a pair of simple gold flats under her flowing Dior leopard print dress instead.

‘‘It was a cheesy publicity stunt,’’ she saidon the red carpet.

Tim Gunn hopes Meryl Streep can make it work on the red carpet.

The "Project Runway" mentor suggested Streep wear something more flattering than last year when the actress, who was nominated for her part as a cutthroat fashion editor in "The Devil Wears Prada," donned a long black dress and was infamously draped in chunky coral and turquoise jewelry.

"I worry about Meryl," Gunn said at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills. "She's so smart. She's so talented. I felt so bad for her last year at this event. I had the highest expectations for her because of the role she was nominated for."
