OSCARS via INSTAGRAM - March 1st to 3rd

Saying that I was excited to be involved with the Oscars is an understatement. It was a great night for me, my Zac Posen gowns and my girl Lupita. Who tuned in to watch me talk red carpet fashion on CNN? 

  1. Guess who’s going to the Oscars!?! Now the big question is: Which Zac Posen gown do I wear?! 1, 2 or 3?
  2. Making an unexpected pit stop in Las Vegas on our way to LA. Apparently the winds were so strong we didn’t have enough fuel to make it! #OscarsOrBust
  3. So this was my life for 24 hours. I completed my CNN crash course!
  4. This is really interesting - every dress worn by the Best Actress Academy Award winner since 1929.
  5. Piers Morgan and I are ready for prom!
  6. My epic view of the Oscar red carpet from the CNN booth! Thank you to Zac Posen for my wonderful gown and Love Gold for the gorgeous Azva Jewelry!
  7. Up close and personal with my beautiful Love Gold Azva Jewlery - making me feel very old Hollywood.

  9. Change of clothes before I go back on CNN to talk about my Oscar favorites. Another Zac Posen gown with Love Gold Azva Jewelry.

LIFE via INSTAGRAM - December 3rd to 31st, 2013

I’m still having a hard time remembering to write “2014” in the date, so it seemed like the perfect time to do a roundup of some photos from last month. In December I got to visit Yale University, tumblr headquarters and Parsons. I also got plenty of face time with my close friend Zac Posen while working on a special project!

  8. My dear friend Zac Posen made my wedding dress in 2010 and in the December issue of Brides Magazine he put me in his fantastic new bridalwear, Truly Zac Posen, for David’s Bridal. If you’re getting married in 2014, look no further ladies.
  9. Love this behind-the-scenes shot of me and Zac on set together for Brides Magazine. If there is one person who loves to dance more than me, it’s Zac.
