I didn’t get to watch all the live red carpet action tonight for the Oscars, but thanks to the wide world of twitter, I kept up to speed with who was wearing what and the best part of any awards show, the fashion! The ladies of Hollywood don’t disappoint and everything from florals, color, classic black, white and red and jewels galore strutted for the cameras.
Take a closer look into my top picks of the night.
1. Lupita Nyong’o in custom Prada. There’s no way this fashion power house is missing anyone’s best dressed list. The color, the cut, the movement and the simple but power packed Fred Leighton jewels are 100% perfection! This level of ice blue dreaminess hasn’t been seen since Cinderella!
2. Charlize Theron in Christian Dior. There’s a reason this lady stands as a face of Dior. This fitted fishtail gown was perfectly styled with her cropped hair and $15 million worth of Harry Winston diamonds!
I know there are some New Orleans transplants right here in San Antonio that miss the excitement of Mardi Gras and the flavors of home.
Luke San Antonio on the riverwalk is bringing it here for you with their special Mardi Gras party on Fat Tuesday, March 4th from 3-8 pm!
During Luke’s extended happy hour there’ll be drink specials, crawfish, shrimp étouffée, jambalaya, king cake and more. Also part of the festivities, there’ll be chances to win t-shirts and Chef John Besh’s Mardi Gras themed Besh Boxes.
Can’t wait to grab a taste of Mardi Gras? Impress your friends and get your pre-party going by mixing up a pitcher of Luke’s own signature hurricane cocktails.
-1 oz. tangerine-infused rum
-1 oz. bourbon barrel ages dark rum
-2 oz. pineapple juice
-2 oz. orange juice
-1 oz. passion fruit juice
- 3/4 oz. pomegranate syrup
there’s really no right or wrong way to do this here, a simple dump and mix will work just fine. If you want to get fancy and have a layering of colors, mix all 5 of the first ingredients together and then slowly pour your syrup down the side of your glass or pitcher for that sunset ombre look.
