Oscar Is In Town

The 2011 Oscars are this weekend and our office is buzzing. While it seems like every year we have one more awards show on the schedule, the Academy Awards are ALWAYS the peak of the season.

This year we'll be watching the fashion with a close eye (as always). We're expecting lots of big statement pieces and color diamonds and gemstones. Stars usually opt for a complete look from designers they work with to create memorable outfits. A lot of hard work is going into this weekend from stylists, PR reps, fashion and jewelry designers, and media. Los Angeles is electric with activity right now.

We're already getting some insider-only rumors about who will be wearing what, so it will be interesting to see what shows up on the red carpet. Sometimes, decisions come down to the last minute, so its always an exciting time pre-show.

Stay tuned, we'll have a bunch to share after the big show!
