Faster than expected, yay ! But enough about me, did you enjoy last nights Academy Awards? I sure did but honestly anything would’ve been better than the train wreck of a show they had last year… Gonna go see The Artist as soon as it opens here, I gotta see what all the fuss is about !
Nina Garcia mentioned on the red carpet that Rooney Mara resembled Audrey with her lean figure and thick, dark eyebrows.. Well yes, there was a resemblance but I felt like the radiant Michelle Williams had more of Audrey’s adorable, kind spirit about her last night. But on the other hand, Mara was wearing Givenchy…
Today is the night of the most anticipated gala of the year, the 84th Academy Awards !
- Audrey Hepburn won one Academy Award during her career, for her performance as Princess Ann in Roman Holiday. She was however nominated four more times after this: 1954 for Sabrina, 1959 for The Nun’s Story, 1961 for Breakfast at Tiffany’s and 1967 for Wait Until Dark.
- The dress Hepburn wore to collect her award was voted the greatest Oscar dress of all time by TIME magazine in 1995 and no wonder - it is quite stunning, isn’t it?
The dress was sold in an auction last November to a private collector for £84 000.
