how fun is oscar night? i always love it. this year i exhibited some calliespondence wares at my friend amy’s house during her oscar party. she is quite the splendid hostess and tied in the food items with movie themes!! love it. check out a few of them…
here we have some moneyballs. (er, spinach balls.)
taqueria del sol’s memphis bbq with jalapeno coleslaw on hawaiian rolls. (aloha theme courtesy of the descendants)
and some chocolate pies with no special ingredient a la minnie in the help.
and to sip on, silver screen punch…which might have you seeing silver, or another solid color, by the end of the night. vodka and champagne together – DANGER but soooo good.
what fun – thanks for having me amy!!
so, of course it’s just the best to see the stars all gussied up and the show was actually pretty entertaining…but i’m an easy laugh. i thought billy crystal was great! and i almost cried when my dvr stopped in the middle of meryl’s speech. dadgumit! she is just so lovely, although i was pulling for viola.
now…i’m no angelina fan…damn homewrecker…but seriously, what in the WORLD was she doing with her leg all night. yeah, we know you have long, skinny legs and you’re just oh-so-daring with your big slit. hold the sass.
emma stone is unstoppable. i loved the cut of this dress and props to her for pulling off a red dress so well. and could her presenting have been any more darling?
while a little underwhelming on the bling factor (can she not call in a favor to neil lane and get a vintage diamond necklace on loan like everybody else?), i did love this dress coupled with her tousled hair highlighted so perfectly.
speaking of bling…i just think this dress would be the most fun to wear. who doesn’t love a good paillette fest? love the drama of the bangs too.
those were the ones i loved – well, and laughed at, angie – along with viola davis (that green!!) and cameron diaz (fit her like a glove). worst dressed in my eyes were rooney mara (ick. white lace with weird three dimensional boob saucers), jessica chastain (this girl is drop dead gorgeous – why can she not find a decent stylist!!!!), j.lo (those cutouts – this is the oscars, not in living color lady.), sandra bullock (sooo ill-fitting) and penelope cruz (i think i wore a bridesmaid dress just like that in the 90s).
now i’m off to score a nap…that was a late night!!
