You may recall, I wanted to invite Edith Head to my ‘Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner – Silver Screen Edition’ party last week “to hear what she makes of today’s fashion and costume designers – many of whom have been heavily influenced by the glamour she regaled upon Hollywood.” Why you might ask?

I’ve spent many an evening discussing the days of Hollywood glamour past, and I’ve stood patiently as my body was hoisted this way and that, while more than a few pins found their way into my flesh, trussed into tight corsets, then having to learn how to walk as if I had a rope tied around my knees (or in the case of my wedding gown, tied around my ankles), only to look into the mirror and gasp like a little girl who’d just been transformed into a princess.

Harper’s Bazaar looks back at the “dresses and excesses of the coolest rock’n roll nuptials of all time.”

Every second of it had been worth it! No one today can do old Hollywood glamour better than Antony Price, much less his unique couture approach (I’ve been sworn to secrecy). With Oscar drawing near, stars and their stylists should take note! Are you listening Rachel Zoe?

Evidently, my friend and former owner of my modeling agency in London once remarked, “no one could wear Antony Price like Julie Anne.” I was so honored by that compliment when another friend repeated it to me. It’s certainly true Antony has been my favorite designer since the moment we met several decades ago, and I’ll only part with the multitudes of frocks he made me over the years when the Victoria and Albert Museum do a lifetime retrospective on his work.

I miss Tone and all the fun we used to have together.  One of my Facebook friends shared this video with me recently – a documentary on Bryan Ferry, Roxy Music and where it all began. It’s a great insight into Tone’s artistic process, and his highly eccentric perspective on life that intrigues, occasionally infuriates me, but never fails to amuse me. Who’s clothes do you think we will see this year’s Oscar contenders wearing?

Need time for that glammed-up social life your own? The Personal Chef Approach will save you on average 5-7 hours per week, and you’ll still get healthy, delicious, home cooked dinners on the table in minutes  nightly. Watch the video below to see how it works.

What will you do with all that time you’ll save?
