Tweet Every year, the Vanity Fair Oscar party is the Best!Party!Ever! Last night was no exception. We walked in right behind Paula Patton, who is quite tall and looked RADIANT without that up-to-no-good Robin Thicke by her side. I couldn’t get over her perfect skin. Paula, Glenn Close, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck all had […]

Tweet The men are killing it again! At the Grammys, the dudes outdid the ladies when it came to adventurous fashion, and they repeated their achievement at tonight’s Oscars. Tuxedos are getting lively! I liked the blue tuxes worn by Kevin Spacey and Jason Sudeikis, and the burgundy one worn by Michael Strahan.  E! red […]

Tweet The last time I wore the mermaid outfit by my designing friend Zang Toi, the weather in New York City was monsoon-like. Now, in Los Angeles, the weather is … monsoon-like.

Tweet In my paean to Elizabeth Taylor’s relationship with jewelry, written after the star’s death in 2011, I mentioned that celebrities today are sometimes paid to wear jewelry, unlike Dame Elizabeth, who owned her own diamonds. March’s Vanity Fair — the Hollywood issue — has more information on the price of red-carpet representation. Here is […]

Tweet 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, […]
