"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Brandi Glanville was not someone most expected to see on the Oscar red carpet, but she certainly made a splash Sunday afternoon. Donning a nude, mermaid style gown, Glanville's fashion selection raised eyebrows for its skimpy top half. The gown, with a barely there bodice that looks seconds away from a wardrobe malfunction, also included a thigh-high slit showcasing the 40-year-old reality star's long legs.

If Glanville's gown continues to receive negative reviews, the only person Glanville has to blame is… herself! The reality star told RumorFix that she was designing her own Oscar gown for her "My BrandB" line. From the looks of her creation, it seems Glanville may have needed more fabric.

Glanville was walking the carpet before reporting for her job that evening, as a fashion correspondent for the On The Red Carpet live stream show for OnTheRedCarpet.com.
