Okay, so I am, as ever, a bit late in posting this, but here I am all dolled up for the Oscar party of the mother of my dear friend T. Every year T's mother has an all out party to celebrate the Academy Awards, complete with red carpet and mandatory dress code. This year we were asked to dress as a nominated role. Three guesses who I am. Really, when it came down to it, there was no contest as to what I would wear. My closet is littered with 1930's pieces (or damned good imitations), so, as this did come as a bit of a last minute invite, I went with my only possible choice: Helena Bonham Carter as the Duchess of York.
