On Air! (left to right) Nick Verreos, Tabatha Coffey, and Marc Istook
Here we are on the day of the Oscars right as we were about to go LIVE to do our TV Guide Network "2013 Academy Awards Red Carpet Show Hosted by Chris Harrison" Show. I wore a Dolce & Gabbana black with tiny white polka-dotted silk satin tuxedo jacket I bought (Yes, BOUGHT Can you believe it!?), with my Zegna tuxedo shirt and Marc Jacobs Collection tuxedo pants. My NIKOLAKI design--and life--partner, David Paul styled me as he always does. Thank You David! For our filming position, we had a great location on the "balcony" position--or "Sky View" looking above the red carpet. We were right next to Kelly Osbourne and Ross Matthews of E! and various other Entertainment Shows--each of us had our own "box" on the balcony.
Tabatha Coffey--Tabatha wore a strapless black mermaid shaped gown featuring gathered tulle and lots and lots of feathers, from Mark Zunino. Oh and yes, she had many, many diamonds as well.
Greek Brothers: Nick Verreos and Christos Garkinos co-owner of Decades and star of the new Bravo show "Dukes of Melrose".
Here are some shots of the Academy Awards Red Carpet from my balcony position, right as we began our "Countdown" Coverage around 2pm and then progressively as the carpet began to fill up with guests, attendees and yes, all the A-List Hollywood Glitterati:
2013 Academy Awards Red Carpet--Right in the beginning...
Here are some shots of the Stars on the 2013 Academy Awards Red Carpet from my "Sky View" TV Guide Network balcony position:
Amy Adams--in her Oscar de la Renta gray-blue ball gown (with her publicist holding her purse nearby)
Anne Hathaway--in her now-infamous dusty pink Prada gown (from the back)..
Amanda Seyfried in Alexander McQueen (left) and the Valentino gown Anne Hathaway was supposed to wear (right).
As we all now know she was supposed to wear Valentino (Valentino's PR people even Tweeted that she was wearing their gown! Ooopsie!) but decided to change her mind right before when someone told her that her "Les Miserables" co-star Amanda Seyfried's Alexander McQueen gown might look "too similar" to hers. I think she should have stuck to her original Valentino.
Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones
Until Next Year!!! Happy Awards Season!!!
