I’ve taken quite the hiatus from blogging, working under the radar on some design elements for the cyber incarnation of my life that is this medium. But last night was my Super Bowl Sunday, also known as the Academy Awards and I could not let the opportunity to opine on cinema and fashion’s biggest (albeit frivolous) night; The Oscars present the opportunity for me to get lost in these two favourite realms of mine. In chronicling this year’s golden globes red carpet, I discussed both glorious and the gravely gruesome looks. In recapping this valediction to Red Carpet season, however, I think I will stick to underscoring the looks I found to be the most notable of the night. Most certainly, the trend of the night was– to bastardize the name of a warm up from a former dancer teacher of mine– super jazzy disco diva shimmer!

There was everyone else at last night’s Oscars and then there was Charlize Theron. She came “glad in the light of a pole star”. Head to toe perfection.
