Today, I thought I would go through them to find some of the Oscar looks that I remembered from my teenage years, thinking in particular of Winona Ryder in Vintage from the 1990s, Angelina Jolie in a white suit and Cate Blanchett in backless Jean Paul Gaultier. I figured this would take a few minutes. Well, I started this morning and at 8pm I'm still going! Major nostalgia is kicking in.

As I want to post something before the Oscars airs tonight, I have picked just a few stand outs and I will do some future posts on clippings from my collection, if only to remind everyone of what life was like for the fashion and beauty obsessed before blogs, online shopping, even the Internet. Magazines were my only window into a more glamorous world.
To give you an idea of the kind of style I like here are some of the stars that I think on the whole get it right every time. They may not be conventional, but they look stunning (I've probably missed out loads that ill come to me later):
- Cate Blanchett
- Michelle Williams
- Julianne Moore
- Maggie Gyllenhaal
- Winona Ryder
- Keira Knightley
- Scarlett Johansson
- Milla Jovovich
