if I was going to the oscars.

25 February 2012

This will be the first year in many that I won't be watching the Academy Award broadcast. In years past, I've created an appetizer spread to rival the parties underway in L.A. and popped the cork on champagne as I happily snuggled into an evening of watching my favorite movies and fashion come together.

The awards aren't broadcast here in Tbilisi and, frankly, no one seems to care. When I asked a Georgian acquaintance if the awards were shown on television, she responded with: "Oh, no one really cares about that here." And, while I can download movies, music, books, etc. from the Internet, the speed is more than (extremely) slow. So, this year, as I live in a far flung destination, I'll connect with my annual tradition by spending a bit of time dreaming about 'my Oscar dress'. After hours of debate and virtual dressing room visits, I present to you my final 18 dresses that I would wear to this year's Academy Awards. What do you think?!
