And The Oscar Goes To…

The Oscar winners for the year will finally be revealed to us tonight and that naturally has me thinking about The Dresses!

Do you have this book?…

Hal Rubenstein interviews designers and tells the stories behind these iconic garments.  There are over 200 images of unforgettable dresses and wonderful observations about the style makers and stars wearing them.

I get in a frenzy in January each year attempting to see all of the nominated films and again this year I have done my best but still have a couple of movies left to see.

The anticipation of who will be wearing what on the red carpet is maybe the best part of the show!

Here are a few of the images from the book, some from Oscar night and some others.

Who could ever forget the Scarlett O’Hara dress for Carol Burnett by Bob Mackie?  He said “It provoked the greatest blast of laughter I’d ever heard from an audience.  And I’ve been around forever.”…
