I was super-excited to go to the Vanity Fair Oscar party in Los Angeles last night. This event is a major thrill for me … but that doesn’t always mean I get a new dress for the occasion. I actually enjoy wearing the same dress to events that are just a few months apart, especially if I can do an East Coast/West Coast thing. For instance, I wore my leopard-print vintage Patrick Kelly dress to the Committee to Protect Journalists dinner in New York in November 2010 …

… and I wore it again in February 2011 to the Vanity Fair party in L.A.

In February 2009, I wore a backless Zang Toi gown with what I poetically termed “ass flowers” to the Vanity Fair party.

Then I wore it to a dinner at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in May 2009.

I’ve always been a bit confused about the years in which I wore my Sex-ay Pilgrim Dress by Donald Brooks to two East Coast/West Coast events in quick succession. But now I think that I wore it to the Committee to Protect Journalists dinner in November 2004 (below left), and wore it again to a Golden Globes party in L.A. in January 2005 (below right).

The latest example is the hot-pink Zang Toi gown I wore with a blue, ruffled Junya Watanabe cropped motorcycle jacket to the Committee to Protect Journalists dinner in November.

I wore the same combination last night. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?

The event was fabulous as always. This time, MrB and I even managed to get a turn in the party photo booth. I LOVE photo booths!

I look soooo purty in the lower right corner.

More photos as soon as I recover!

    You look fabulous, Wendy! So glad you had a wonderful time. And your photobooth pictures are priceless!!

  5. Louise says:

    The outfit looks even better this time, I think because you dialed the eye makeup up to eleven.

    Also, if the photo of MrB with his tongue in your ear was actually the next cover of Vanity Fair, I could die happy, my life complete.

  6. Sheila says:

    You look amazing in all the photos, Wendy! I love the frisky Mr. B! Gorgeous gown on you – the blue eyeshadow is da bomb!

  7. Lynn says:

    OMG–those photobooth pics. MrB’s tongue should have its own post!

  8. Your Oscar festivities and glam outfit posts are more fun than the Oscars! Tell Mr. B he’s busted for licking your ear in the photo booth.

  9. sulky kitten says:

    You look gorgeous, Wendy – as ever! Mr B’s tongue has to be your best accessory yet!Don’t wear it out.

  10. Megan Mae says:

    LOL! That upper right hand photo of you and Mr.B is the best thing I’ve seen all day. Cracks me up.
