My fabulous friend Kerry and her whirlwind Oscar extravaganza

Check it! My friend Kerry was lucky enough to attend last night’s Oscars. And in her true rockstar fashion, she shared her pics with me, along with some insider tidbits on what it was like to be a part of Hollywood’s big, fat, glamorous night.

Below are her thoughts! (In bold AND italic, because I’m just that excited for her.)

There are a ton of photographers, and if you are a normal invite, they try to heard you down the carpet as fast as possible. (What a term: ‘normal invite’!)

Ed Begley Jr took our picture in front of the oscars after we took one of him and his wife. Celebrities are nice! 

The carpet is very long and very cool.

Professional hair and makeup can make you feel like a princess – I highly recommend it for nights like these! I went to DryBar for the updo and Blushingtons for makeup… genius locations as they are side by side!  Both took the time to ask what I was wearing, what I wanted and did adjustments at the end if I wasn’t happy with what they had done. So nice.

I wanted a pop of color with the grey so had a bright pink clutch and wrap. and went pink on the nails too! Earrings are my grandmother’s clip-ons. Ring from my mom–it’s platinum with black jade–and the bracelet was, of all things, a bridesmaid gift. (I love how Kerry kept the earrings calmer as not to distract from the drama of her neckline. And bravo to the pop of pink!)

 I always heard it but seeing it in person is so true – sometimes dresses just don’t translate to the TV screen! Emma Stone’s dress was an amazing deep magenta and looked stunning with her red hair, but on screen (they had TV screens set up in the theater so we could all see close ups) it looked bright red. 

And yes, we went to in-n-out after the oscars in full dress and make up.  it was awesome eating a cheeseburger, animal style, in formal attire.  but i was also very happy to be in flip flops by the end of the night! The make up lasted the whole time and still looked good when i washed it all off.  I’m pretty sure there were 20 bobby pins in my hair but somehow it didn’t hurt at all. one of the joys of thin hair!
Loved every minute of it. Felt incredible.
Wow, it sounds like a beyond amazing experience. Thanks, Kerry, for sharing! You looked positively MARVELOUS.
