The Secret Politics Of Who Wears What At The Oscars

It's Hollywood's big day and by the end of tonight, our news feeds will be flooded with celebrities in designer dresses trying to make fashion history.

In this episode, The Quicky team finds out how designers get noticed, how they get to style Nicole Kidman or Cate Blanchett, how much money exchanges hands, and how have Aussie fashion houses gone in the race to get their best frocks on the carpet.
