every best actress oscar dress worn since 1929

MediaRun digital illustration Best Actress Oscar dress worn since 1929

hold onto your hair rollers, because tomorrow is the big night, kittens!

the gowns! the glamour! the betting pools (humble brag: i've won over $600 over the past 10 years).

thanks to london-based digitalrun media, we have this truly fabulous illustration bible, which chronicles the gowns worn by oscar winning actresses since 1929. some are iconic, some are infamous. study and commit to memory, darlings. there will be a test.

a few of my faves below. stay glamours, my friends:

Audrey Hepburn Oscar gown givenchy for Roman Holiday

above: bow down! audrey hepburn in givenchy. best actress: roman holiday, 1954. always and forever the queen.

Oscar gown Bette Davis 1939 for Jezebel

above: bette davis works it out in tulle and gossamer "feathers" for her 1939 oscar win for jezebel.

Vivien leigh oscar 1940 gown with the wind

above: the lovely vivien leigh poses with her oscar and dessert plate (two of my favorite things) for her gone with the wind win, circa 1940. (side note: how come red carpet ladies don't wear gown with prints more often?)

Grace Kelly oscar gown by Edith Head the Country Girl 1955

above: perfection - grace kelly in a gown by iconic costume designer edith head. film: the country girl, circa 1955.

Elizabeth Taylor and Eddie Fisher Oscar gown Butterfield 8

above: in 1961, elizabeth taylor wins for butterfield 8. liz wears an ivory silk, embroidered ball gown, waist rose (and sash!), and see-through high neck yellow top. i would totally wear this. and my hair would look fabulous.

Gwyneth paltrow pink Ralph Lauren Oscar gown

above: gwyneth paltrow wins in pink for shakespeare in love. gown by ralph lauren. an iconic dress is born, circa 1999.

Marion cotillard oscar gown by Jean Paul Gaultier

Marion cotillard oscar gown by Jean Paul Gaultier 2008

above: quite possibly my favorite gown in the history of gowns. marion cotillard in jean paul gaultier neptune's muse dress (not the official name -- that's what i call it. jean paul, you're welcome to use it.), circa 2008.

i die.

whoranging at the parker palm springs


darlings, if you need a winter getaway, palm springs is the place to be.

it's winter warm, winter mellow, and a winter sunshine wonderland.

one or our favorite spots is the parker hotel. the jonathan adler designed destination is a welcoming stomping ground with its lush grounds, experimental croquet, suspended egg chairs, poolside lounging, and groovy details around every corner.

and, the bedside reading is judith krantz's scruples (just to set the mood). need i say more?
