DRESS DOWN Jolie's Oscar frock was nabbed in London

Angelina Jolie may have to go to the Oscars naked. Her Oscar gown, along with the jewelry and accessories that went with it, was stolen on Wednesday, and the designer says he doesn't have time to prepare a new one, Reuters reports. Jolie's Oscarwear, and the gowns of eight other Academy Award attendees, were stolen right out of designer Scott Henshall's car, parked in London's posh Knightsbridge neighborhood.

''There is no way I can remake Angelina's or any other dresses in time'' Henshall told London's Evening Standard newspaper. ''There were 20 outfits in the collection and now the nine most glamorous have gone.'' He described the ''Girl, Interrupted'' Oscar winner's gown as a tight-fitting corset dress adorned with cherubs. He valued it at 3,000 pounds (about $4,700). Police are investigating.
