Oscar night

I really don’t care a whit who gets the Oscar for any category most years, but I do like watching the red carpet.  This year I even managed to get a huge load of ironing done while viewing – bonus!

My favorite look for the evening was Penelope Cruz. I thought she completely captured the iconic elegance of Grace Kelly, and I loved, loved, loved her ensemble.


A close second favorite was Tina Fey. A girl after my own heart (often seen in black), I thought her custom Carolina Herrera black peplum gown was another stunner. Though I am not sure anything will ever top the short black lace Oscar de la Renta dress she wore to the Mark Twain award ceremony in my book….just saying.


What did you think? Any new favorites last night? I probably should have been sewing instead of viewing, but I am going to finish those jeans I never entered into the PatternReview contest TODAY. I will!

Happy sewing!
