E!'s Glam-O-Strator — Highlight of the Oscars


I have to agree with Tom Shales, the TV critic of the Washington Post, who began his review of the telecast in today's paper, "Alternately (and sometimes simultaneously) a bore and a horror...."

But he did give a paragraph to a very nice new wrinkle in E!'s pre-Oscar red carpet coverage, the Glam-O-Strator, in which the network's fashion analyst uses an on-screen pen to demonstrate, via lines and arrows a là Phil Simms during NFL telecasts, why a gown is indeed a Versace or suchlike.

Shales wrote, "An E! innovation this year: The Glam-O-Strator, a modified version of the "telestrator" used for football games, except this time it was used for designers and other interested parties to comment upon, and circle key elements of, glamorous dresses worn by women attending the show."
