Gimme 100-1 on Vicky B

Oscar night is fast approaching, so how would you like to combine your love of nice frocks with some good old grubby money making? Paddy power - the bookies with the best name after Bill Hill - have offered odds on which designers will feature on the red carpet.

Grazia offer their considered view on which dressmaker is worth a punt on Sunday night:

'9/4 is the favourite - Alexander McQueen, this means he's very likely to win – so if you put £10 on you’ll only win £32.50 (rubbish)
Lanvin and Oscar de la Renta are both at 8/1 so with that £10 you could stand to win £80 (plus your bet, so £90)
Alberta Ferretti in at 12/1 so . . . a good return of £130!
A Victoria Beckham dress would be a riskier punt at 100/1 – although if this actually happened you could pocket a grand from your £10 investment (!)

Others on the list include Bottega Venetta, Balenciaga, Chanel, Armani, Christian Dior, Stella McCartney and Prada.'

We like our odds high, so we'll be taking a flutter on our own Vicky B, especially as the rumour is she'll wear her own design on the night. We wonder if that counts...
