"Fasten your seat belts. It's going to be a bumpy night." I stayed up way too late last night watching All About Eve.
Conclusion: Eve Harrington was the original Tom Ripley. (Also, Bette Davis was a serious force to be reckoned with. And Marilyn Monroe was such a STAR.)
Edith Head's gorgeous costumes — the film won the Academy Award for Best Costume Design, along with five others — are reason enough to watch the classic film, although you should probably just watch it for the same reasons you might watch Casablanca, Citizen Kane or Singin' in the Rain, too. It's good.)
I say this every year: I really need to go to a ball.
Trends I hope to see tonight:
Every day, I'm [American] Hustlin'
The '70s are back.
Up Your Sleeve
Sleeves are in. I call this the Kate effect.
(Although after Lupita Nyong'o's Ralph Lauren gown at the Golden Globes, I'm not sure anyone will dare to done a cape.)
Killing Me Softly
Pretty is always in.
You Make Me Happy When Skies Are Grey
Grey is not boring.
Saturated colour isn't boring either.
We'll all be wearing a lot of this colour in 2014. Get ready.
What I'd Probably Wear
I am currently plotting a way to wear the middle outfit. I have a fall wedding to attend....
Angelina, I dare you.
P.S. Here's an infographic of all the "Best Actress" Oscar dresses.
