My Suggestions for What To Wear on Oscar Night

in years past I've suggested specific gowns for specific
presenters & nominees....

well, this year I'm doing it a bit easier...
& simply showing you outfits I think

beginning with these exquisite ones from Valentino

below from Alberta Ferretti

this one, from Oscar, is one I WISH someone would wear,
but it's probably too covered up for the stars...
too bad 'cause it's beautiful.

or this one...which is skimpy enough to show some skin & curves,
also Oscar

& below, some images from Elizabeth Taylor's home...
I knew you would want to see them !!!

The dressing room.:

A pile of jewels in the actress’s dressing room.:

Taylor’s cat Fang, roaming over her Chanel shoes.:

A hair-washing station inside the shoe closet.:

& finally, THAT RING !!

The Krupp Diamond given to Taylor by Burton.:

Love the post, off the sholder is my favorite.
Liz's house is a dream, some closet.
Turning 80 this year, I just have deleted a lot
of my cloth. My wants and desires are not important
any more, people are. Keep up the wonderful style.

LOVE your blog. I enjoy every post! I have a quick little story about THAT ring you might enjoy. I have been a Flight Attendant for a gazillion years--back when there were still grooming checks and pride in the job. I had Elizabeth Taylor on my flight and she is still, hands down, my favorite celebrity passenger. She could not have been nicer or more down to earth. All of the crew agreed she was the girlfriend you'd most like to have at your girls night. But at one point, one of the crew said "OH! Is that the Krup diamond? " and Ms. Taylor took it off, handed it to her and said, "Yes, would you like to try it on?". So, of course, we all had to try it on. But there was something just so special about Ms Taylor that she could carry off a diamond that big. It looked a little silly on the rest of us. But, yes, what a ring!

What a WONDERFUL story !!
I admired her from the time I was a young girl, and still think she is & was the most beautiful woman in the world (including Angelina Jolie).

Such beautiful gowns, and I especially like the glam of the third one. But, alas, today's "stars" seem to be dressed by designers who are lacking in good taste. Or their publicists are.
You can have the Taylor bling, I'll settle for the Chanel shoes. Oh, la!
I met her once at a charity event. Kind and gracious, even though paparazzi were invading her personal space. And those remarkable, incredible violet eyes.

Emm. everyone who ever knew or met her said the same. Very grounded, very beautiful.

Your blogs new look is stylish, chic and elegant, like it's author.

I am in Europe and will watch the Oscars tomorrow night, where they are showing a two hour condensed version.

Brooklyn is my favourite movie of the year.

Your selection of gowns are beautiful

Marsha Splenderosa said...

Thank you, Helen. Good for you being in England. I may never have a vacay again as I'm working so much. I think Bridge of Spies was the best movie, however, I really hope Leo wins as he should have won for The Departed. xx's
