Reeling from the Oscars

Yes, the Oscars had me reeling last night. 

Not because of the host's sexist production number--that inspired a different reaction--but because of Halle Berry's beautiful dress that, to me, recalled sparkly strips of film from a reel.

Clever without being self-conscious or perhaps even intentional, the Versace dress nonetheless paid homage to film-making.

I never thought of film until you pointed out the similarity, but I did think the dress a stand-out for strength and cleanness, without dispensing with glamour.
Fun to watch the Oscars with you last night, via Twitter. Or rather to have a comrade in arms . . . sharing the dudgeon
