Guys. This is it. This final post of awards season. It’s been a completely wild few months – from launching this thing soon after the Emmys, to closing out the busy season with the last two weeks of Oscars coverage. I’ve had a blast and want to thank each and every person who has stuck with me and kept reading!

And while awards season may be over, stay tuned for a lot of great stuff over the next few months. Next week we’ll be catching up with Will and Kate and Meghan and Harry who got up to all sorts of fun while I was busy blogging about awards season. Both Cannes and the Met Ball are coming up in May, as well as the terribly exciting Royal Wedding. So thanks for being here, and thanks for continuing to be here! xx

Oscars After Parties 2018: The Musicians

A handful of musicians (or general music-film multihyphenates) attended the Vanity Fair and Elton John after parties.

THIS. I’m in awe. This is absolutely sublime: it’s exceedingly HER, while also being completely different (re: a color) than what she usually wears. An excellent collaboration with flawless execution. And if you haven’t checked out the two new songs she dropped a few weeks ago, please check them out. They’re virtually impossible not to dance to.

Oscars After Parties 2018: Models Being Models

Models did model things: expect much sheerness and shortness, some successes, and something that makes me suicidal with disgust. I have placed these in order from YES to DEAR GOD NO.

Bow down now, because it only goes downhill from here. As always, Naomi schools the kids.

Oscars After Parties 2018: Costume Changes

A whole bunch of folks changed before they headed to the perennial Vanity Fair shindig. Some for the better…some, not so much.

She is positively statuesque. Is there a Zendaya Barbie yet? If not, there should be, and she should wear this dress. I’m surprised at how much I like it – I don’t usually gravitate towards non-colors. It’s the Zendaya Effect: she can convince you of just about anything.

Oscars 2018: Closing Out the Red Carpet

These posts took much longer than I anticipated – battling my third virus of the winter season took up a lot of quality blogging time. Many thanks to everyone reading for their patience! Here are the rest of the red carpet looks from last Sunday’s ceremony. Stay tuned for coverage of the after parties this week, as well as some posts catching up with Kate and Meghan across the pond.

I predicted Emma would go with something custom from Louis Vuitton – if only because everything that came down their runway was awful. I like this more than I thought I would although I wish the fit was a bit more carefully tailored.

Oscars 2018: SHINY!

There was a decent amount of shiny…but the magpie in me ALWAYS wants more glitter.

I can 100% guarantee that this is the first and only time Jennifer Lawrence + Dior = Good. Their partnership has produced less than stellar results, but this is really superb – and as a bonus, was one of my picks! I love how it looks different on stage from on the red carpet – it has a very liquid quality to it. Oh, and it also looks good when you’re heaving your wine-drunk ass over a row of chairs. Never change, Jen.

Oscars 2018: Black, White, and Neutral All Over

This was one of the largest categories of the night – sometimes I think awards show fatigue sets in and folks phone it in or go too “safe” for the big dance.

I am a big fan of Allison’s style, but this is too pale for my taste. I see what they were going for and in almost any other color I would probably love it.
