Grown-up style: The Oscars 2013
If I ruled The Academy, Emmanuelle Riva would've picked up an award last night. At 86, Riva is the oldest woman to be nominated for Best Actress - and much as I liked Argo, Amour was easily my favourite film. The Parisian veteran was superb, as was her co-star Jean-Louis Tritignant. I'm surprised he wasn't even nominated, wouldn't have happened on my watch. I was however pleased to see the fabulous Jennifer Lawrence picking up a gong, though if I was Queen of the Oscars she'd have been recognised in 2010 for Winter's Bone. Anyhow, now for the important stuff... didn't Riva look stunning in her navy blue Lanvin gown? Trés, trés chic. Did you notice who else was wearing navy blue?
Yep. The best actor, ever, Daniel Day Lewis. And let's have a round of applause for Rebecca Miller who was doing her bit for dresses with sleeves.
Who were your Academy Award winners?
