Aussie actress Cate Blanchett is terrified of trying on any of the designer gowns she's been offered for the OSCARS because she fears her baby ROMAN will ruin it.

THE AVIATOR star has been looking at all the dresses on websites and she'll make her pick in the week leading up to the Academy Awards on 27 February (05).

She'll don the chosen dress for the first time just before she hits the red carpet.

She says, "I've visited STYLE.COM... I'm too scared to put on a dress in case the baby vomits on it."

Blanchett is up for Best Supporting Actress for her performance as Katharine Hepburn in The Aviator.
