My Take on the Oscars 2017

The clear winner at last night’s Oscars was 16-year-old Auli’i Cravalho, and I’m not saying that just because my friend Sam Saboura styled her. I’m saying that because he did a spectacular job, and she looked stunning in everything she wore.

My Take on the 2015 Oscars Red Carpet

It’s all so subjective. I loved dresses that others panned…I chuckled at gowns that others thought were glorious. So here it is…one more person’s (pretty much) irrelevant opinions.

Lorelei Linklater – I know she’s just a kid, but this is trying way too hard to be a grown-up…the wrong kind of grown-up.
