Did Sandra Bullock have a wardrobe malfunction?

There's only one thing that could possibly make winning the best actress Golden Globe for a dramatic movie less sweet, and that would be accidentally wearing a see-through dress.

Sandra Bullock, still glowing from her win, turned to the ever-helpful backstage press for a second opinion on her gown.

"My dress isn't see through, is it? I know you guys would tell me right," she said, before she could even answer any reporters' questions.

Bullock's dress, an iridescent purple floor-length gown with a full skirt, does have just a touch of sheer at the back.

    wow I didn't realize there were still that many prudes in the world. Lighten up people there are worse things going on in the world besides messy hair and see-through dresses or talking about having sex with your spouse.

    Sandra Bullock has shown some skin in the movies, however when she strips down to her 'birthday suit' in films (Fire on The Amazon, 28 Days, The Proposal), she is filmed so that none of her 'naughty bits' are showing. She probably has that clause written into her contract before she agrees to appear in the movie.

    As far as the gowns the women wore, all of them looked great, execpt that Drew Barrymore looked like she had a bunch of sea urchins or tribbles attached to her outfit.

    So, love Sandra...didn't get to see the Globes this year, but I've been wondering if she would/could ever get something decent for her to act in, out of the gushy lovey dovey type casting stuff. And as far as Sophia Loren, she *is* the...most...beautiful...woman in the world, in this girls opinion! Always has, and probably for quite a while! Her beauty transmits beyond just the outer, which is definitely timeless, as we are witness to, but her inner beauty is beyond measure! Thank you, for allowing me to speak here in freedom!

      yes very good . I do wish people would also start aiysng to society " believe ", and " do not let doubt enter " because for those of us who did tell the worst part was the being unbelieved and now in our work are just in shock at the amount of unbelief still out there .

    Sandra's dress was hardly indecent, it was simply an unfortunate choice of cut and fabric.
    Anybody that has been to a discount fabric store has seen bolts of this shimmery gazaar for 99 cents a yard. It's something an aspiring but very poor young drag queen would use for his first stab at an evening gown and I fear would use it in much the same way as Sandra's designer did.
    Sophia Lauren was lovely and glamorous but if those of us that can remember and admit it will recall that her breasts caused every bit as much of a stir back in her day, our parents found her indecent and unladylike.
    Lighten up, this is about Hollywood and entertainment. If they went out there looking like ladies of the DAR that would hardly be fun.

    Do these people look in the mirror? Do they think for themselves? What about the ones with the extremely low-cut dresses, as joyces writes. Sleazy. Esp. if what you're exposing is store-bought obviously FAKE boobs! What's glamorous or beautiful about that? Have some dignity, women!

    Sophia Loren outshined them all. The lady is 75 years old, looked amazing and oh so beautiful. The younger actresses could learn a lot from such a lady. She sets the perfect example.

    Re Sandra's dress...it was partially see-thru around the thigh area but nothing risque and nothing to worry about...which I'm sure she didn't think twice about...

    The theme of the night for some of the "ladies" was to bare their breast for all the world to see. All it did was to degrade them to the low class they portray on screen!!!!

    I personally thought Sandra Bullock looked beautiful and her dress was stunning!

    I'm willing to be that if Sandra Bullock's husband had been banging you the night before the Oscars, you'd have wanted to brag about too.
    Hell, he's hot!

    Not only the weird hair styles, but some of the dresses I wouldn't be caught dead in. Pale dress, pale person – couldn't really see the style. Kate Hudson's dress was ugly along with others that I saw. Some of the women have no sense in style for their body shapes. Julia Roberts looks like she weighs a ton. The outfit did not flatter her. Hair half up and half down! Use hair spray to keep it in place – even with the rain.

    Sandra Bullock has always been considered "a good girl". She doesn't show skin in her movies. Nothing wrong with that She is now married to Jessie James, who was married to a porn star. I would think she has quite the material to "trip his trigger". Maybe if more "no class" women would follow her lead, the divorce attorneys in the US would have to find a different line of work.

    Sandra Bullock is attractive and an entertaining actress. But since she talked at recent Oscars about great sex with her husband the night before, I have no respect for her at all. It is totally tasteless and tacky to discuss such a topic in front of millions of people. It teaches our kids and others how to have NO CLASS.

    What's with these hairstyles with the hair hanging down in their eyes? Julia Roberts looked like she just got up, Sandra Bullock's hair– that's how my hair looks after I rake the lawn. Julianna Margulies looked great, except for that hair in her eyes. I'll be glad with this look goes out of style. Sloppy, sloppy, sloppy.

    Another example of being desperate to scare up news. You'd think the Golden Globes would provide enough legitimate stories of interest without having to try and manufacture one out of nothing.

    What did it reveal which did not entertain the press, viewers and readers? That is basically the standard in celeb circles – to always bring something interesting to the limelight.
