What 18 Children Wore to the Oscars

Beasts of the Southern Wild's 9-year-old star Quvenzhané Wallis faces a formidable challenge on Sunday. The youngest-ever nominee for the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role, the puppy purse enthusiast needs not only to maintain composure, but to look appropriate in a black-tie environment while she does it. Wallis recently fretted, "fashion is my kryptonite," and worried about tripping on a gown. So what should a 9-year-old wear on the Oscars red carpet? We've asked that question before, looking at designers' kid-size clothing lines. This time around, we look at history, from tween Angelina's lace, to Shirley Temple's ruffles, to young Judy Garland's furs.
