Oscar Thanks

Skip to the next if you can’t stand it but it would be criminal not to thank those who helped make Oscar weekend so amazing.

Here’s Dylan being Dylan posing with Oscar in his tux. Note – at the Oscars, EVERYONE has to dress up. Camera crew, assistants, technicians, anyone with access to the carpet for whatever reason has to get dolled up. As such, Dylan rocked it with kicks on the bottom. He wants me to say he was even more handsome than Daniel Day-Lewis. OK.

Also attached – Tanya Kim, the host of eTalk and I during rehearsals madly texting on our blackberries about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. This is when the story first broke that she showed up with her baby bump. We were not the only ones who looked like this at that time. Trust.

Next – TK and I at Baja Fresh during our hour break before the live show. Baja Fresh is just across the street from the Kodak. So of course we had to scarf down some classy chow just before headlining the most glamourous event in Hollywood. Of course we did. Dylan decided to capture the moment because it appealed to his artistic sensibilities.

And finally, TK and I just after we wrapped. Relief!

Many, many, many thanks to Joyce Ma at Tension and Sweet Chemise for designing my dress. I loved my dress. I loved the colour, I loved the fit, I loved that I could eat and I loved that it was gorgeous but not – look at me, I’m the big star. Because a reporter should never be a standout, you know what I’m saying?

Joyce is recreating this dress in cocktail length in black for her fall line. Joyce – I love you.

And to Heather at Kiss & Makeup for my makeup and accessories… she has the amazing eye. Vincent Longo has the BEST eye colours right now and my new favourite bright blue liquid liner. Sienna Miller’s makeup artist actually stopped me to ask what it was.

Click here to visit the site as they’re giving away the most beautiful red shawl and the store has the most gorgeous selection of CC Skye in Canada and online. To those of you who asked – it was these mesh earrings I wore on the show on Friday and these leather bracelets in every colour, worn three or four at a time. My favourite.

If you don’t see what you’re looking for on the site, call the store. They will accommodate you… promise.

Next up – the Juno Awards! And a major, major, major giveaway in the works. Because I can’t possibly and adequately tell you how much I appreciate that it is your loyalty to this site that makes these things possible.

Thank you, love you, owe you.
