And The Winner Is....

I can hardly contain my excitement!  As well all know (or should know), Sunday is Oscar night.  This is one of my favorite nights of the year!  I don't want to hear about the fact that it's political, fixed, or unfair - even if that is true I don't care about that right now.  I love the pomp and circumstance, the awkward acceptance speeches and the occasional one that makes you really feel happy for the winner.  I love the awkward scripts, the best of the best actors who panic when the teleprompter fails, and the (far too occasional) fantastic host.  And I love the fashion - duh.  :)

And though I won't be watching this year (as far as I know, they don't really show it over here, at least not on any of the channels I get.  BOO!), I'll be devouring the videos and red-carpet shots the next morning.  

If I ever live State-side again I will - without doubt - throw an Oscar Soiree.  And if I ever live close to my dear, hilarious, also-Oscar-obsessed friend Sarah (who just started a fabulous blog, which you must read), I know we'd throw an Oscar party to rival the Governor's Ball.  Right, Sarah?

And if you're going to throw an Oscar Soiree, dahling, you must dress the part.  There's no point in throwing an oscar party if you're not going to win best costume.  I personally think I'd go all out, but in case that's not your thang, here are two looks (one red-carpet ready, one after-party chic) to inspire you to look like a winner on the big night!  And whatever you choose to wear, make sure there's a little sparkle, otherwise it's just plain wrong.  A sin, even.

And now for the party looks:




  1. Gracie I love this! I am throwing an oscar soiree, well since it won't be super classy, we'll call it a get-together. and how I wish you could be here!
    We'll make you proud! There'll be ballots and fromage and wine :)

  2. Sounds amazing (and perfect)!!! Have so much fun!! :)

  3. AH! Love this post! And yes, whenever we're on the same continent again we will and MUST throw the biggest most glam Oscar gala ever. It will be legendary!

    As for watching the show or pre-show itself, you may want to check out E!Online. They did a live feed online of the Globes arrivals and will most likely do the same with the Oscars. Just a thought!
