The Oscars {2013}

I really do love awards season and living in the US is the perfect excuse to stay up late to watch the live telecast (rather than checking the internet every 5 minutes to check out the new arrivals on the red carpet which usually happens back in Australia).

 We didn’t host a shindig like we did last year (I’m starting to struggle a bit now at 32 weeks) but I did stay up to watch it..well almost all of it.

Let me just whinge for a moment: Jennifer Lawrence – wtf, was Silver Linings Playbook that good? And poor Hugh, Daniel Day-Lewis was always going to win Best Actor.

 For 2013 my best dressed awards go to

Naomi Watts in Armani

Jessica Chastain in Armani Prive (that woman is on fire she looks drop dead gorgeous)

P.S I have a crush on Bradley Cooper…I’m just saying…


The Oscars {2012}

We had a few people over to watch the Oscars last Sunday evening. It wasn’t meant to be an ‘Oscar’ party but it ended up that way with Hawaiian mini pizzas (The Decendants), cracker jack popcorn (Moneyball) and chocolate pie (The Help).

{There was no special ingredient in this chocolate pie!}

Credit goes to Tim for baking the choc pie, it turned out delicious! Thank you Eric Lanlard for Cake Boy – it’s a great cook book, never had an issue with any recipe.

There wouldn’t be an Oscar post without discussion about my fav dresses. Here are my top 3.

Milla Jovovich in Ellie Saab. One word, supermodel.

Penelope Cruz in Armani Prive. She looks like an old movie star. Even Joan Rivers gave this one a gold star.

This one might be a little controversial since technically this isn’t the red carpet but my final pick goes to Shailene Woodley at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in Proenza Schouler. Such a fun dress and totally age appropriate.

I just love awards season and checking out the beautiful dresses. So envious, the last time I put on beautiful dress was my wedding dress way back in October 2010. When was the last time you got to get all dressed up?
