The Weekend Guide....

With less than 72 hours to go, celebs are being prepped and primped for the *1st Annual Academy Awards. Tents have been erected on the Red Carpet in anticipation for rain. The Academy has even Oscar fans a step by step update of the evenings events. From the construction outside the Kodak theater right down to the decor and theme for the Governor's Ball.

Obviously, I'll be tuning in for the Red Carpet festivities hosted by 'Project Runway' style guru Tim Gunn and 'Good Morning America' anchor Robin Roberts. I absolutely adore Tim Gunn's take on style and look forward to his take on Oscar looks. I'm not a huge fan of Robin Robert''s fashion sense or lack there of.... In the past few years we've seen her go from drab to fab before our very own eyes. Her signature close cropped mane as the result of her battle with cancer has created a buzz for the anchor in the fashion world.

Designer Gilles Mendel and Suze Yalof Schwartz, executive editor at large of Glamour magazine, joined Robin Roberts to help her pick out the perfect Oscar-worthy gown.

"Good Morning America" asked its viewers Wednesday to weigh in on Robin's Oscar dress choices. More than 7,000 viewers lent their opinion for or against one of Robin's final three dresses. The decision still has not been made and Robin still needs your help. Check out the dresses and vote here.
