2016 Academy Awards


I live to see the Academy Awards and absorb all the amazing fashion.  This year was half disappointing and half very rewarding. Since there are so many awards shows these days in a concentrated time frame, it is frustrating to see actresses wearing not their best choice to the biggest one of them all.  Nevertheless, there were some stand outs...


Naomi Watts looked A M A Z I N G in Armani Prive.  I love the dress, her hair and her jewels--so elegant.  She looks like a true movie star.



Olivia Munn in Stella McCartney


Sofia Vergara in Marchesa..she is meant to be on the Red Carpet.



Emily Blunt pretty in pink with her baby bump in Prada


Jennifer Garner dressed to kill in Atelier Versace



Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive




Saoirse Ronan in Calvin Klein Collection



Jennifer Lawrence in Christian Dior



Julianne Moore in Chanel Haute Couture




Charlize Theron in Christian Dior




Rooney Mara in Givenchy Haute Couture




Brie Larson in Gucci




Margot Robbie in Tom Ford




Reese Witherspoon in Oscar de la Renta


and a close up of her Tiffany jewels..


Some favorite moments...




Kate and Leo on the Red Carpet.

 I don't love Kate's dress but I die over them walking the Red Carpet together.




and then the 6th time was a charm for Leo.  So happy that he finally won.  His speech was so great and I loved the end when he said "I don't take this night for granted".


And then the Vanity Fair Oscar Party...




Elizabeth Banks in Ralph & Russo


Tory Burch in Tory Burch



Carey Lowell



Serena Gomez in Louis Vuitton





Leo and Chris Rock




Jennifer Garner and her Alias dad Victor Garber




Lovebirds Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton




Jennifer Flavin and Sylvester Stallone-my heart broke for him




Lynn Wyatt and Georgina Chapman


So many fun pictures..I might add more later.


Happy Leap Year Day!

Leo

Academy Awards weekend is finally here.  I cant' wait for Sunday night, one of my favorites of the year.  There are so many people I am hoping to win but no one more than Leonardo DiCaprio.  He has been so deserving for so many years (in my opinion), that it is time to award him for his amazing work.  He has won many Golden Globes but not an Oscar. I thought a timeline would be appropriate..

Did you know that one of Leo's first roles was as Mason Capwell on Santa Barbara?  BFF Denie and I raced home from school every day to watch that show...

Next stop, Growing Pains.. 


 This Boy's Life...


What's Eating Gilbert Grape..

Basketball Diaries...

Romeo + Juliet..

and then Titanic..and every girl in the world fell in love with him...

 The Beach..
Catch Me if You Can...


Gangs of New York...


and then The Aviator.  This is the film that should have garnered Leo his first Academy Award.  He was unbelievable playing Howard Hughes.  He lost to Jamie Foxx playing Ray Charles.

 One of my personal favorites, The Departed...
Blood Diamond...

 Shutter Island...
Revolutionary Road..teaming back up with Kate Winslet...

 Inception...
J. Edgar..
 D'Jango Unchained...
 Amazing in the Great Gatsby..

The Wolf of Wall Street..


and finally The Revenant!

I haven't seen The Revenant yet, but it definitely looks Oscar-worthy.
 My fingers are also crossed for Sylvester Stallone-always a favorite.

You know where I will be on Sunday,

The First Monday in May

Another behind the scenes video at Vogue has been in the works. Filmmaker Andrew Rossi followed Anna Wintour and her fellow event Chairs while they planned the 2015 Met Ball,  China: Through the Looking Glass.

  Most mere mortals will never score an invite to this exclusive Ball, so this will be an entertaining treat.  Set to open the Tribeca Film Festival on April 13th, this in-depth film shows what it takes to pull off this huge event and tackles the question about whether fashion should really be considered art.
  The trailer is here:
