Kelly Ripa Searches for the Perfect Oscar Gown

02/23/2012 at 04:30 PM ET

Finding an Oscar dress isn’t easy — just as Kelly Ripa! The talk show hostess is busy looking for the perfect gown to wear while hanging backstage at Sunday’s show and interviewing stars for her morning-after LIVE! with Kelly special.

In the clip above, from the Celebs on Facebook page (which Ripa is taking over for the weekend), she tries on every kind of gown, from fitted to flowing, Marchesa to Marc Jacobs. Her husband, Mark Consuelos, is on hand, too, to offer support in the form of comments like, “It’s very Princess Leia,” and “I’m a guy, I don’t understand high fashion.”

Watch the video for more from the cute couple, and to hear Ripa’s secret plan for filming the stars Sunday night. Tell us: Are you excited for the Oscars?

Well, despite the above post, I’m going to go ahead and ccizirite. We were asked out opinion after all!The eyes are not right. Brad Pitt’s eyes are bigger as compared to the rest of his face. Also, his eyelids are more rounded on top, on the wax figure they are straight.If you’re going to make Brad Pitt, you have to get the eyes and lips right! (Pretty good on the lips, btw)
