I found a cool fashion slideshow at The Guardian today. See the whole collection here. And I learned a new word! The title of the article is "Oscar Fashion: How To Do Off-Piste."
Come again? The online dictionary says "off-piste" refers to snow skiing, and means "Existing or taking place on snow that has not been compacted into tracks." So, off the beaten path. You all likely knew that already, but I live in Florida. We had a few snowflakes back in 1986.
There will be a lot of body-con gowns at the Oscars tonight, and strapless prom-like dresses, and some marvelous nude columns. There may be some off-piste as well, and I'll be looking for that.
Here's my girl Tilda Swinton in 2008. She took a lot of heat for this Lanvin dress, but I loved it on her.
Florence Welch is another woman who skis off the beaten trail, and looks like her own gorgeous self in this Valentino gown.
Although she's often called a "worst dressed", I think Diane Keaton is fab in her androgynous style, and she's her own drummer. Here she is in 2003.
And of course, the inimitable, always-off-piste Cher in 1986. Go big or go home.
Will you be watching? Have a wonderful evening and stay fabulous,
