The 85th Annual Academy Awards was an amazing showcase of elegant fashions, beautiful people and show-stopping performances. The common theme evoked a sense of “old Hollywood” meets modern day trends. From Best Actress Oscar Winner Jennifer Lawrence, who selected a pale pink Dior Haute Couture princess-like gown, to Best Actress nominee Naomi Watts, who opted for a glittery modern/classic gown designed by Armani, the styles were stunning. Proof that many Hollywood stylists got it right this year! Hamptons icon Steven Spielberg may not have won the Oscar for Best Director for the film Lincoln, but he looked amazing in a classic black tux. Equally as important as the attire one wears to the Academy Awards are the stylistic designs that go into dressing each movie set. Lincoln is a masterpiece of not only film, but also of production design. Every scene brings the audience back in time with genuine authentic décor from the 19th century by including such details as the use of brilliant handmade lace. In fact, the lace table clothes and drapery used in the film are so rare, they are still created using original looms designed by MYB Textiles of Scotland.

Another ritual amongst the Hollywood A-listers involves a great deal of pampering. Although the drive over to the Spa at the Four Seasons or Beverly Wilshire it a bit far, we can drive to The Spa at Gurney’s Inn in Montauk. Gurney’s Spa provides the same amenities and services the stars love to indulge in. This March in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, treat yourself to one of the spa’s many organic green treatments such as Gurney’s famous Seaweed Wrap, refreshing Marine Kur Therapy or Brush and Tone Therapy. Gurney’s Inn, 290 Old Montauk Hwy., Montauk, 631-668-1892, gurneysinn.com.
