As you might have heard, there is a major awards show fast approaching. This Sunday, the Birchbox eds will be camped out at Bene’s Brooklyn apartment to watch all the Oscars festivities, and live-tweeting the whole affair. (Be sure to follow @Birchbox on twitter and use the hashtag #Oscars to join our red carpet and showtime conversation!)
You can bet that there will be cocktails, there will be scorecards, and lordy there may even be a popcorn bar at our viewing party to keep our spirits high during the four-hour-long show. We’re also taking inspiration from SRSLY and making our Oscars party a black tie affair—though we’ll be skipping those crippling stilettos in favor of good ol’ sneaks. Here’s what we’ll be wearing this Sunday.
Mollie: I have a trusty Jill Stuart pleated gray taffeta number that has served me well—and it’s roomy enough that I can eat all the snacks that I like. I’ll also be using this as an excuse to practice using the clipless iron to get pretty waves. To top it off, a tomato red lip: Lancome’s Rouge in Love in Saint Honore.
Meredith: I don’t want to give too much away, but it’s pink, poofy, and peplum. As far as shoes, since I’ll be commuting from Manhattan, I think my polka-dot Keds will be in order. For hair: a quick topsy-tail updo.
Bene: I’m thinking an easy black number with some shiny beading at the neck (this is the Oscars, after all), a few pops of gold and silver accessories, and my trusty navy Supergas. Since I’ll be cooking (and making popcorn apparently), I’ll go for a simple ponytail and a classic smoky eye.
Rachel: Ideally I’ll piece together an outfit that encompasses my three wardrobe staples: feathers, sequins, and leather. And since I’m going to be walking to this party (and it’s pretty cold out), I’ll definitely be wearing ski socks and my trusty boots. I haven’t decided on makeup yet but you can be sure I’ll be sporting some glittery nails.
