Straight From The Oscars!

After a week of prepping, fitting and accessory shopping, the Oscars turned out to be exactly as magical as incredible as I hoped! Even a little LA drizzle couldn’t get Hollywood down, and I had the best time interviewing stars on the red carpet. (Seriously, what a year for fashion. Those gowns!) Here’s a quick look behind the scenes at my day leading up to the Academy Awards.

9am: I’m getting ready for the Oscars red carpet at the Roosevelt Hotel with the Access Hollywood team, we’ve worked together for three years now, so they’re like family! Once I get my giant dress there, it’ll be time for glam!

10am: We decided upon an edgier look: a midnight blue smoky eye and slicked back, wet-look hair. (Perfect for today’s rain, too!)



1pm: I put on my Monique Lhuillier gown, which is surprisingly comfy, my Alexandre Birman strappy sandals, House of Harlow clutch, jewelry courtesy of Bluefly and its time to hit the red carpet! On the way I see a few cops and can’t resist snapping this pic!

2pm: We are rolling! The stars roll up and I’m impressed with how many risk-takers there are. Emma Stone has a beautiful Great Gatsby-esque hair style, a coral lip, and a stunning Elie Saab gown. Julianne Moore’s black and white Chanel Couture apparently took almost 900 hours to make! And my favorite of the night, Gwyneth Paltrow’s pale pink Ralph and Russo, with a giant rose on the shoulder. Gorg!

5pm: I finish reporting from the ‘princess tower’ overlooking the red carpet. (Giving Bradley Cooper a kiss before I go ;).)

6pm: Time for the after parties! I switch into a fun purple printed Monique Lhuillier gown, Nicholas Kirkwood heels and Baublebar earrings. I watch the Oscars with friends at InStyle’s party and finally get to eat a big meal! Paella and roasted veg, followed by chocolate peanut butter popcorn… yum! Then it’s off to Elton John’s party down the road. But I’m Cinderella tonight and have to be in bed by midnight, I’m getting up at 3am to give my fashion hits and misses on The Today Show…

I guess I’ll sleep next week some time, haha!

  • I remember the first time I met Ralph Lauren. I was working at in London, and was flown to Moscow (yes Moscow!!) for the launch of his flagship store there. The runway show was epic: a live orchestra played, and afterwards we drank frozen vodkas shots with pickles, and ate supper at the ambassador’s home under a hundred candelabras. We danced til the sun came up. Tonight, I’m getting a sneak peek at his @skyatlanticuk documentary, #VeryRalph, which I’ve been DYING to see, and it was incredible! Catch it tomorrow on @skyatlanticuk, or on demand any time. #ad
  • #ad Friendsgiving has become a very happy tradition for me. Living in LA, all us Brits had families far away so to celebrate the holiday we would gather to cook, eat, drink, play games, and laugh for hours. I was naturally always in charge of cocktails and this year I’m making the @ketelonebotanical Botanical Spritz. So easy to make and so delicious with no sugar and no carbs- just add club soda and fresh fruit to your favourite varietal in a wine glass! Can’t wait to bring this tradition back to England this year! #PeachandOrangeBlossom #KetelBotanical #BotanicalSpritz
  • I had so much fun shopping for Honor at @ilgufo_official today- and I got to chat to the Italian heritage brand’s elegant CEO @alessandrachiavelli ... watch it all on my stories. How are Italians just always so impeccably chic!? #ad #ilgufo_official
  • Today we walked to the town square and listened to the trumpets salute our fallen soldiers, we watched the helicopters fly overhead, and we listened to the choir sing. I wish Honor could have met her brave great-grandfathers, who fought in the RAF and the army, but I shall make sure I tell her all about them, and that every year we will proudly wear our poppies. #LestWeForget #RemembranceSunday
