That’s me, working the red carpet at the 2017 Academy Awards red carpet — talk about a dream come true! It was a crazy whirlwind — after leaving New York on Thursday, I spent Friday and Saturday in Miami at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival, then hopped on a plane early Sunday morning to fly out to the West Coast, where I made a mad dash from the airport to hair and makeup. I called it #5DaysOfBusy.
Along the way, I tried a closetful of dresses on to find the perfect gown, packed tasty snacks to entice the stars walking the carpet over to talk to me (after all those weeks of dieting to fit into those slinky dresses and tuxedos, you know they wanted a treat!), and caught a red-eye back to New York so that I could share my experience with the cast and audience of The Chew first thing on Monday morning. It was a wild, exhausting, exhilarating ride — and I’d do it again in a heartbeat!
Here are a few of the beautiful dresses that I tried on before settling on the gorgeous white gown above from Solace London, accented by jewelry from Fred Leighton, shoes from Stuart Weitzman, and glasses by See Eyewear:
And here’s the full video from today’s episode of The Chew, where you can find out all about my incredible experience. Enjoy!
