Happy Leap Day, Lovelies!
Today’s treat only comes around every four years so make it count!
Get your Flirt On…
And embrace the day in a sparkly way!
“Pick the day. Enjoy it – to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as
they come… The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present – and I
don’t want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future.”

It’s not ’til after midnight that the real party gets started on Oscar’s Eve, darlings!
As soon as Best Picture is announced (The Artist ~ c’est si bon!), the stars are whisked away from the Oscars in their limos to the real party of the evening. Here are some of my fave shots of the festivities at the Vanity Fair soirée at the Sunset Tower Hotel last night…
Kate Hudson ~ orange crushing on this gorgeous frock! Perfection.
Kate Bosworth ~ After-Party pretty.
Katie & Tom ~ I’m surprised Suri let them go without her. Maybe she gave them a curfew.
Cameron slipped into something more coral ~ and cute!
And then God created woman ~ Rosie Huntington Whitely (soon to be Statham).
Julie Bowen ~ pretty in tangerine with gold accents.
Julie and the equally-adorbs Leslie Mann ~ love these ladies!
Le Stud ~ Jean Dujardin.
Tory Burch ~ demure in one of her own darling designs.
Gwynnie ~ sans cape.
January Jones ~ or…Patricia Arquette?
Rooney Mara ~ so lovely, à la Audrey!
Simon Baker ~ le sigh.
Scorcese ~ drink!
Always adorbs Leslie Mann with hubs Judd Apatow.
Leading lovelies ~ Octavia and Meryl.
George Lucas & Chris Rock ~ Black Tie BFF’s.

Steve, Gwyn and Martin ~ great candid shot! Stars, they’re just like us.

Bon weekend, lovelies!
Are you as giddy as I am to see the Oscar Red Carpet tomorrow? It’s time to bring on the Ooh La La! Based on what I’ve seen come down the catwalk for spring, I have high hopes for a promenade of pretty ~ pastels, brights, bows, lace, tulle, ruffles, chiffon, chignons, high ponytails and heels.
This year’s nominees have proven to be a charming batch of stylish and smart cookies so good taste in gowns should be a given. Let’s hope all the designated darlings get their sparkle on tomorrow!
Certain Hollywood icons are a tough act to follow, but here’s a quick look back on some of my fave lovely ladies who have set the stage for style, class, and charm at the Oscars over the years…
Audrey Hepburn, 1954 Best Actress for Roman Holiday
Grace Kelly, 1956
La Liz, 1960
Golden Gene Pool ~ Natalie Wood with Warren Beatty, 1962
Goldie with Kurt, 1989
Best Bud Beauties Salma & Penelope, 2002
Diane Lane, 2003
Michelle with Heath, 2006 ~ lovely and bittersweet
One of my all-time fave Oscar frocks ~ Diane Kruger in Elie Saab, 2006
Gorgeous Girlfriends Beyonce & Gwynnie, 2007
Golden Girl Jen Aniston, 2009
The ladies above know it, Audrey and Kay sang about it in Funny Face, and it still rings true today ~ a real lady knows the secret of how to be lovely! Sometimes it’s as easy as un, deux, trois…
“It’s all about good taste.” ~Giorgio Armani

With rising temps expected to top off at 70 degrees today, I’m in the mood for the zing of spring! I’d love to kick off the season fashionably early with these smokin’ Prada Bow Tail Light Slides ~ lust-have item #44 on my sizzling spring wish list. Bows and tail lights? Brilliant.
Or, add extra edge with these Flame Slides that put the Prrrr in Prada…
I’ll catch you in the rearview mirror of my lipstick case, lovelies!

Local lovelies ~ if you haven’t had the chance to check out the new Anthropologie in Old Town, be sure to pop by and see the pretty! Poised at 612 King Street (former home of JJ’s Hallmark), it’s open, bright and airy ~ a nice change from the darker interior of its Georgetown sister. With temps near 70 today, it’s also the perfect time to check out the pretty spring things it has in store for you!
Ahoy, matey! Nautical stripes…
Au courant mix of brights and pastels…
Spring staples ~ denim capris, eyelet peasant blouse…
The employees are also super-sweet, knowledgeable and helpful!
