Playing Dress-Up with Garcelle Beauvais
Christos Garkinos dishes on Oscar season consigning.
It's Oscar week 2012 at Decades. It's our busiest, merriest, and cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs time of the year.
I'm always on the hunt for great dresses during awards season. Hence my visit to Liza Mae Carlin -- one of my favorite clients. She has the most amazing closet -- um, hello that Moschino piece!
Loved that I found that Galanos dress -- I thought it would be perfect for someone at the Oscars.
Cut to: my best pal and actress Garcelle Beauvais comes in to consign an insane Tom Ford dress and to find something for the Elton John Oscar party.
I love playing dress-up with Garcelle. You could put a paper bag on her and it would be the finest paper bag in the world.
I love love love her in the final choice: Prabal Gurung. And then she invites me to grown-up prom -- the Elton John soirée. I'm so excited until wah-wah, she gets an allergic reaction 15 minutes before we have to leave. Seriously. No reality BS there! Luckily, my husband of 14 years is there to rescue the day/night. How cute is he??? We met at a car wash. So L.A., right!?
Meanwhile, Cameron has been working with Melissa McCarthy and her dress for the Oscars. So what do you think of it? Cause Cameron was not pleased with my answer!!!
