Bravo, Diane! I could not agree more with what you said in your op ed column about the Oscars. But I also think that we have just come to expect TOO MUCH of these stars. They are not perfect, and they are not fashion experts. The entire evening has just become TOO overblown – almost nobody could live up to those standards. Your comment about Halle Berry was also very true. Let’s face it, this woman can wear a paper bag and look beautiful, but her choices often look like costumes…..what a shame for us fashion people who want to see (or hope to see) exceptional fashion translated exceptionally off the runway! Well, there’s always next year.
