i’d like to thank the academy…

March 9, 2010 at 1:42 am 8 comments

Here are a few photos from my very small Oscar soiree! Only the two coolest cats came, and boy did we look good. Well, I think we did. But I’ll let you be the judge. :)

Check out my ~spread~ for the evening:

SO CLASSY, RIGHT? I know, you’re super sad and/or jealous about missing it. Tragic really.

First up: grey, sophisticated chic from JORDAN, aka the BOOV. Skinny guy, skinny tie. But Jordan wasn’t messin’ around. Oh no. He went to BARNEYS before he came. To buy shoes. And do you know know whose shoes he bought?

DOLCE & GABBANA. (This will be the one and only D&G tag my blog will ever see, LOL!) You don’t even want to know what he paid for these. Just DRINK THEM IN, folks. They were even more glorious in person.

ALERT: HOT NEW HOLLYWOOD POWER COUPLE! What should we be called? Caradon? Jordara? CaBOOV? The lady wears a black one-shoulder stunner from White House Black Market with red patent Nine West peep-toe pumps, while the gentleman opts for sexy, sophisticated cool hues and D&G shoes.

CaBOOV enjoy ice-cold Coca-Cola from glass bottles. 100% pure class.

Next to arrive: WILLIAM. Boho chic, giving Gosling a run for his money!

Not even Johnny Depp looks this dashing in an artfully draped scarf and a carefully disheveled coif.

What’s this?! Cara was seen canoodling with bad-boy William at the Academy Awards after-parties – are CaBOOV on the outs? Story developing…

They appear all smiles, but is something more going on? Could Cara be coming between long-time friends Jordan & William – the Matt Damon & Ben Affleck of their generation?

JEALOUS EYES! If a picture is worth a thousand words, then Tolstoy could write one of those little piddly novels of his thanks to this shot alone. CaBOOV are beaming, but William can no longer keep up the cheerful facade. The look on his face – is it jealousy? despair? insecurity? or could he be sneakily checking out the starlet before him? Story developing…

AN OSCAR MIRACLE! “I’d like to thank the Academy…” In a shocking upset, William picks up the Korbel trophy for Best Actor – apparently it was all just an act! The trio is as solid as ever! Bravo, William, I say BRAVO!

Ok, back to reality. ;)

Jordan brought Phoebe’s cupcakes!


Double chocolate

Strawberry shortcake

~cupcake love~

How does William manage Gosling-level sexyface while I am shoving my unsexyface with strawberry shortcake cupcake? HE TRULY HAS THE GIFT.

Even though I won the prediction ballot, I didn’t feel right about giving myself the prize, so William received… Chinatown and The Two Jakes! Now we just need to watch them. Movie night, anyone?

Jordan fondles his new D&G shoes.

William the cat – raarr!

The ~D&G shoe bag~

I think CaBOOV are officially kaput. It’s clear he has found a new love…

But hey, maybe we can share – whaddya say, Jordan?? ;)

    I really had a lot of hope for CaBoov, but everyone knows you can’t come between the love of a boy and his shoes. <3

    Adorable, wish I was there!

      LOL, it’s true, Jordan + D&G = LUV4EVA!

      I wish you were there, too. It would have been an even more SAUCY love triangle… square? if you were!

    Hilarious gossip rag entry!

    • 8. Cara  |  March 13, 2010 at 5:35 pm

      Thanks! I should’ve called in one of those ever-so-insightful “body language experts” just to top it off, no? :)
