On February 28, 2016 join me at Bokeh Lounge for the Alhambra Film Festival Oscar Viewing Party.  As the Editorial Director of Love IT! EVV and all around beauty and fashion lover, I will be using my knowledge to help judge and award the Best Dressed. 

You can scour the internet for all of the trends OR you can follow these simple steps to get closer to having that trophy in your hands!

The Oscars 2014 | According2Kana

In my line of work, it is expected of me to stay up on all the trends of the award show, but to be honest I have NEVER watched the Oscars.

I think I chose a really good year to though. Ellen DeGeneres was an amazing host. I found myself entertained the whole show. From her taking selfies with the stars in the audience to feeding them pizza in their formal outfits, she took all the stuffiness out of my idea of what the award show would consist of.

Highlights for me:

  •  Seeing Hair & Makeup Artist winners Adruitha Lee and Robin Mathews. As a makeup artist it is so cool to see how far you can take your profession and that other people realize the weight hair & makeup carries as far as helping tie together the vision that films try to portray.


  • Meryl Streep gettin' it with Pharell during his performance.
Love this!!

Love this!!

...AND

  •  Lupito Nyong'o giving her acceptance speech. I got teary eyed. I think it is amazing that she recognized that it took someone else's pain for her to be there. The the words that struck me the most were "no matter where you're from your dreams are valid". 

I laughed, I cried, I felt it all...

But I did not forget what I came for! A bit of fashion & ya'll know I have to add some Local Love in when I get a chance. Below are my favorite looks of the night with a few correlating Paparazzi Glamour & Gown looks! 

Overall great show & I will definitely be watching next year!!
