The Best Accessory on the Oscars Red Carpet Is Whoopi Goldberg's Octopus Ring-Bracelet Thing

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Whoopi Goldberg has just descended upon the Oscars red carpet with an accessory that is actually more eye-catching than Giuliana Rancic's obvious product placement smartwatch. Is it a ring? Is it a bracelet? Is that a crabapple-sized pearl??

It's definitely an octopus, and I am here for it.
