Wheather it’s the Grammy’s or the Oscar’s, you can’t show up wearing that same cocktail dress from last year’s Christmas party.
Here in L.A., we take award season pretty seriously. And if you have the pleasure of attending one of the city’s many hosted ceremonies, we want you to spend as little time possible searching for the perfect outfit. (Maybe all of the saved time can be put towards advocating the lack of representation – but we’ll save that for another article!)
