 The early bird gets the cleavage shot! Brandi Glanville was one of the first stars to hit the Oscar red carpet on Sunday, Feb. 24 in L.A. And, boy, did she take advantage of the photo opportunity.

The Bravo star wore a jaw-dropping, flesh-colored mermaid dress with thigh-high slit and a plunging neckline that showed off her barely-contained cleavage.

Glanville reportedly designed the head-scratching gown herself. She also wore a skimpy, self-designed dress to the book release party for her memoir Drinking & Tweeting

Earlier this morning, she tweeted, "Chilling at the...Oscars..Um yep."

Tell Us: Do you think Glanville’s dress is appropriate for the Academy Awards?
