Of course my building would have a false alarm fire situation right when the Academy Awards were starting…I just paused and then got to scoot through some commercials. So many beautiful dresses on the Red Carpet this time. Here are some favs…I have to say I kept thinking that Joan Rivers was going to rip some of them apart tomorrow. We’ll see…

So excited for Sunday’s Oscar telecast. I have a luncheon to go to, but in the afternoon, I will be parked in front of my tv ready to go. Couldn’t resist putting pics of my fav Oscar dresses..hopefully Sunday will offer some new favorites to add here…

Angelina Jolie in Marc Bouwer
Who will make the list??????
Sunday…8pm on ABC
Also, wishing a happy happy birthday to Brooke today!!!
My birthday finally ended last night at a super fun dinner at George’s. A few last minute cancellations left Ricky and Brian with a harem of ladies. Several rounds of truffle fries and champagne later, we ate a delicious dinner and marveled at how many birthday dinners there were on a Tuesday night. When it was finally our turn, they came in with a nutella pizza and a firecracker lit on the top. It was great to catch up with everyone.

I know there will be many people nastily commenting on this delightful picture of Suri Cruise caught thumbing through the pages of on old Vanity Fair magazine, but how funny is she? I get such a kick out of her and her unbelievable life. Even though I was not properly introduced to her on board the Allure of the Seas in November, we were mere inches away from each other multiple times, so we are practically bffs. So, the naysayers can go on and on about her little high heels, her bottles at age 3 and now her reading an adult magazine in a library, but mark my words..someday Suri Cruise, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt and Violet Affleck are going to rule the world…you’ll see.
The evite for Hoby’s birthday party came through the wires two weeks ago promising a fabulous crab dinner on their roof. I was so excited, not only because I have been lucky enough to go to one of their crab dinner before and loved it, but a party on their unbelievable roof downtown is really something to witness. Hoby hails from Baltimore and so the theme was a Maryland feast. Little did I know there would be more than just the crabs flown in…
A few hours before the party, he sent me this pic of the setup..how fun!
When I arrived, a bunch of friends were already there. The weather was fantastic and a perfectly clear night to see all of Miami’s splendour from high above.
Me and Hoby
An amazing raw bar
Lots of friends
