Would you let JCPenney design your Oscars dress? Okay, before you react, hear us out.

Recently, when Entertainment Tonight asked, "What will you be wearing to the Oscars?" Academy Award nominee Sandra Bullock said she was asking everyone to submit dress sketches—including JCPenney. Even though Bullock was probably joking around, the design team over at JCP took her request to heart and their head designer, Geoffrey Henning, came up with four Academy Award looks for Bullock—all inspired by pieces from JCPenney's spring-summer 2010 collection. Not bad, eh? We're partial to the print gown. Which one would you pick?
