Oscar Gold

Did you catch the Oscars last night? The celebs were out in style...and no Grammy-esque memo needed...private parts were seemingly on lock down.

It seems that, overall, most played it pretty safe. I definitely saw some lovely dresses, but nothing that really surprised me (a la Gwyneth Paltrow's white cape gown from last year).

Before we get to my three faves...I must note that I really did not enjoy Anne Hathaway's pink Prada gown. Worst dart placement. Ever. See for yourself.

Nipplegate aside, here are my top three faves of last night's ceremony...

Kerry Washington in Miu Miu. Not a designer you see too often on the red carpet, but this gown's bodice detail and coral-red color are incredible.

Naomi Watts in Armani Prive. How amazing is this dress?

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture and *the best* makeup and hair. Total beauty. Did she steal JLo's makeup artist for the night?

Top Three Grammy Gowns

Well...even though the stiffs behind the Grammys sent out the *don't show your lady bits and man parts* memo, plenty of stars still pushed the envelope last night. I spied a handful of sheer ensembles, racy slits and a mass of side and under boob.

Did the stars take the memo? Well...kinda. We didn't see any pasties a la Lil Kim...so there's that?

Anywho, below are my three fave gowns from last night...which were yours?

Currently Craving: Winter Steals

If you're like 99% of the shopportunistic public, you probably enjoy a great deal. And being that we're deadlocked into the winter season, now is the seemingly perfect time to score some rawr-some winter deals.

I very much appreciate in season shopping, because let's be real - unless you're purchasing a very, very trendy piece, you'll likely wear a gorgeous wool coat for years on end. Thus, the inspiration for today's craves. Whether you seek an uber warm North Face puffer or a pair of gorgeous boots, those scores are definitely ripe for the picking.

Happy shopping!
