Tuesdays are for Mood Boards.....Oscars..

As the Academy Awards are rapidly approaching (Sunday March 7), I am sure designers are scurrying around like mad rabbits putting together one-of -a-kind creations for the stars. In doing a little research, I came across this amazing image of the breathtakingly beautiful Grace Kelly. Apparently with a price tag of $4,000 ( It was the most expensive Oscar gown to date), Grace Kelly arrived in this Slate Blue Satin Gown to accept her Best Actress award for her performance in The Country Girl in 1955. It was designed by one of the most influential and important designers of our time, Edith Head. Ms. Head, who designed for all of the movie studios, knew exactly what worked best on film. Knowing a woman's body, she created designs that would accentuate the positives and used fabrics that would reflect the light.
These gowns that you will see dancing down the red carpet on Sunday will be extremely important to what you will find in the stores later on this year as well as what will be walking down the aisles.
So in honor of Ms. Kelly and Ms. Head, I have created an Oscar worthy adaptation to an elegant, rich and classic wedding.
