PHOTO BLOG: Fashion beyond the red carpet

Oscar buzz often has less to do with film awards than with the pageantry of the event -- especially what the stars wear on the red carpet.

In honor of the Academy Awards this past weekend, World Vision celebrates our stars -- children -- and their cultural pageantry and expressive styles of dress.

Sponsor a boy or girl in need. When you help provide for basic needs, you give your child the opportunity to experience life in all of its fullness, as these children are doing all around the world.


    Beautiful children.

    Their outfits are beautiful--the girls are beautiful inside and out.

    This was a terrific idea! and these girls ARE absolutely beautiful- their clothes are inspired! Love this!! Thanks for sharing!!

    Natural, innocent beauty. They make me smile and, no offense to the "red carpet", but these girls are prettier!

    Definitely agree that these girls are beautiful. Glad they were able to make you smile! -Jonathan, WV staff

    Truly beautiful young ladies!

    Hi Sofia-
    Aren't all of the bright colors so beautiful? Seeing how different cultures use color and fashion is always a highlight for me!
