Pawsing on the Oscars Red Carpet : Felicity Jones and the Silver Sheen

Ella the Catwalk Kitty reporting from the red carpet at the 2015 Academy Awards.  Forgive the delay but there was a minor incident with security that required a bath and restoration of feline dignity.

Felicity Jones was the first to catch our eye, a shimmery vision in a beautifully feminine Alexander McQueen duchesse satin gown and vintage Van Cleef & Arpels jewels and clutch.  While I can't help wishing there was a hint of a slightly-undone top-knot peeking over her head for a touch of counterpoint with the flowered and beaded bodice, her smooth tresses were an elegant choice and likely the wiser one ~ so I restrained my pen and brush from embellishing the truth on this occasion. 

And now, the champagne corks are still sighing, so shall we slip into the Governors Ball for some of Wolfgang Puck's 'comfort-food-meets-pure-decadence-bites' and trademark pizzas?  Our gowns come with built-in spontaneous drycleaning.  And on that note ...

Happy Oscars 2015 to you !

  1. Glad you chose this (one of my faves of the evening) to render in your inimitable style, ma belle. My wish for you: a pressing need for one of these gorgeous gowns (as in our Hugh needs an escort for the Oscars or the Tony awards and must have YOU on his well-toned arm).

  3. It took a while, Ms M. You know how it is ~ one has to do it so delicately as to have Kitty think no-one noticed ... {PS: Thank you !!}

  4. I didn't even watch the awards show and I'm in L.A.. I have a friend who is a chauffeur and carts the celebrities to and fro. Last was Maggy Gelenthal (sp). She was fun - gave him her gift bag. The Academy was a carload of British models - he was not impressed.
