I’m quite smitten by D. Kim’s wry illustrations on Etsy. Above: A jumble of glass lanterns, a new take on the silhouette and subway entrances. (I need directions to the station that takes me many moons away!) Kim is a Brooklyn artist, with humor, talent and an edge. Bravo.
Hello everyone. It’s very late here but I’m wide awake. They were serving chocolate martinis and trays of Godiva bonbons at the Elton John party. I’ve had way too much sugar. And now I’m on the Internet and watching Oscar recaps on TV. So, what did you think of the Oscar fashions? The colors were very neutral this year, with fewer diamonds. Bling is out. White is in. Everyone looked like a bride. I’m longing for the days when Nicole was wearing chartreuse.
I loved Kate Winslet as Marianne Dashwood in Sense and Sensibility and she was brilliant as Clementine in the Eternal Sunlight of the Spotless Mind. (It was horrible the way people criticized her for gaining a few pounds after Titanic.)
She looks beautiful (and charming while crying during acceptance speeches.) Can’t wait to see how she does tonight. She has stiff competition though. What an amazing group of actresses!
Comment from the talented Tina Tarnoff: “She is just amazing, so strong and vulnerable at the same time. I loved the interview and the amazing photos of her as Deneuve in the December Vanity Fair. Here’s the link. I do hope she wins!”

Here are some wonderful old photos of Audrey, Grace and Elizabeth with their Oscars, always the most popular guy in Hollywood this time of year. Are you watching the Academy Awards tomorrow night? Who are you rooting for?

I love this photo of Jennifer Lopez wearing the now iconic sequin and tulle Oscar de la Renta dress. I cut this out of a magazine awhile back. Of course now I can’t remember where it appeared. (Do you know!? Vogue, perhaps). It’s gorgeous! Would you wear a short dress like this to formal event?
UPDATE: The photo is from Elle magazine, September 2005. Thank you anonymous!
