belles of the ball

There were so many beautiful dresses at the Oscars last night, but these two were hands down my favorite. Kiera Knightley looked like a dream in Valentino. Styled by Leith Clark, the gown was feminine and whimsical and I think Kiera should live in it. Ms. Leith posted a detailed shot of the dress on instagram... it's beautiful. Chloe Moretz in Miu Miu looks like an extra from my favorite film, Marie Antoinette. The cut of the gown, and that floral silk! Good grief. Also, how cute are those pockets? A perfect solution to the "what do I do with my hands" problem :)

why don't you... indulge your feminine side?

I wish that I could tell you why this unabashedly feminine behind-the-scenes film was made or where its resulting photos were published, but I haven’t the faintest idea! I’d love to know - this short is absolutely stunning. It totally brings to mind Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette, don’t you think? Though the some of the clothing choices are a bit too hip for my taste (don’t get me wrong - they’re fab, I just could never pull it off!), the setting is phenomenal. A gorgeous countryside manor with an equally gorgeous interior? Yes, please! I'd like to give a big shoutout to Vincent Kos for creating this little flim - dear sir, you've made my day :) 


on this day in history...
