What would you wear, if you were nominated for an Oscar?
Important to remember that if you were nominated, it’d mean you were a talented actor. I would hope that recognized talent brings confidence. It certainly would, if I were the boss of the world. So you’d want to look good, but also reflect yourself, more than the style of the day.
I’d have to go with blue. Maybe navy, the Sturdy shade, with texture. Add big pearls. Maybe powder blue, with Artsy curling flowers. Dangling diamond earrings. All jewels from Beladora, because loyalty to old friends trumps simple carats. Except the headband because Nancy is all out of them right now. Not worn as a tiara mind you. I’d use my celebrity power to get the shoe people to make me custom 2 inch heels. And I’d wear a nude lip, or a red one, depending how I felt that night.
I still think that the best part would be the confidence. Particularly from, as Sue noted today today, “our favorite “certain age” contingent: Dame Judi Dench, Meryl Streep, June Squibb. I always appreciate the elegance they bring.” But I’m good with the confidence of the young, too. Sparkle on, you talents, sparkle on.
