Liza Minnelli showed that she is an entertainer who is daring, mischievous and classy at the 2014 Oscar Awards. Liza Minnelli initially was the talk of the red carpet for her hair and clothing choices. Her dark black hair was provided a bright royal blue streak that was quite noticeable but matched her outfit which was a royal blue off-the-shoulder blue shirt and matching royal blue pants. This outfit provided a nice dash of colour to an Oscars red carpet that had little in terms of fashion 'daring' as most of those who walked the red carpet were very traditional and safe in their clothing choices.
However, Liza Minnelli spiced up the red carpet and kept social media busy when people became aware of the possibility that Liza Minnelli did not appear to be wearing a bra under her gown and thus parts of her chest were prominently displayed when the spotlight appeared on Liza Minnelli despite the fact she was wearing a gown. This aspect of the clothing may have been Liza Minnelli showing her mischievous side because it is very unlikely she did not know how the shirt would promote her features when the light was directed on her and because the Academy Awards were on the 75th anniversary of her mother's renowned movie, the "Wizard of Oz" she knew that she would be met on the red carpet. Some fashion and entertainment insiders think this was a way for Liza Minnelli to send a message to people that she is still sexy and daring even at 67 years old.
The 2014 Oscars will also be remembered for how Liza Minnelli showed class and the ability to forgive in how she responded to Ellen's joke in which she pointed at her and congratulated her as the best "Liza Minnelli impersonator I've ever seen. Good job sir.". Liza Minnelli noted how the fact that the joke failed because Ellen forgot to mention after the joke that she and Liza Minnelli are friends and that there was no ill will meant by it. Liza Minnelli never used the opportunity to bring more attention to herself or make things tougher on her friend Ellen.
Liza Minnelli did not win an award at the 2014 Academy Awards but she will be remembered as someone who earned a considerable amount of attention at the Oscars because she was willing to push the fashion envelope in the manner that only a star knows how.
