Oscars 2013... A mini recap

UGH, boo, ick, snooze... [insert dismayed expression here].  This year's Oscars are barely worth mentioning, with nary a gorgeous gown in sight.
Let's recap...

Anne Hathaway borrowed Madonna's crazy cone corset and wore it under a dress best suited for a Bat Mitzvah princess...

How could someone who's usually red carpet ready go so astray. But, oh hey...she won!

Adele rocked some serious hair...

 and Jennifer Lawrence tripped while heading to the stage. At least she was cushioned by her giant Dior couture gown... If only we could all fall so gracefully.  

Seriously though where are all the Oscar worthy gowns? Surely there was room for a colorful stunner like the gowns that just walked the runway at Oscar de la Renta. 

Better luck next year.

London Fashion Week Street Style

Its probably so last week's news...but I'm loving some of the street style looks from London's Fashion Week.

Lots of patterns and textures (stripes, plaid, floral) mixed with cold weather staples (big jackets, a hint of fur, leather) makes for a perfect transition to spring.

Lovely Lee

If you haven't already...check out T magazine's feature on Lee Radziwill. Interviewed at her home in Paris by Nicky Haslam, there is also a short film by Sofia Coppola.

 Lee is famously known as one half of the Bouvier sisters. The other was Jackie Kennedy Onassis.

Often photographed in glamourous getups, she was friends with everyone from Andy Warhol to Truman Capote. Lee even toured with the Rolling Stones and is rumored to have romanced Mick Jagger.

She also graced the pages of Vogue for her great taste in fashion and decorating.

What I love about Lee, (besides the fact she is still super chic at 79) is that she proves you can still be a lady (well coiffed hair and all) and be the life of the (very wild) party. 
Lee says it best. "Why live, if life doesn't engage my curiosity."

Jumpin', Jumpin' at the Superbowl

Rumor has it...  Destiny's Child will be reuniting, alongside BeyoncĂ© at the Super Bowl half time show, this Sunday. Here's a look back at some of their redic get ups (mostly designed by Bey's momma Tina) that proved circa 2002 matchy-matchy wasn't just for Olsen twins.

Even if you weren't a fan of their getups, your still a fan of their music. "Say My Name", (the freeze frame style moves were definitely attempted at many a 4th grade sleepover) "Jumpin', Jumpin'" and "Emotion" followed by basically the entire Survivor album: "Bootylicious" and "Independent Women", to name a few.
