The Oscars 2014 – Whoopi Goldberg & Alex Martin

For the Oscars 2014 Whoopi Goldberg and daughter, Alex Martin were planning to attend. I stepped in and dressed Whoopi’s daughter Alex Martin. NO, I did not dress Whoopi, but I would have loved the chance since I’ve been on The View with her several times. Last week was hectic as I was suddenly being included in a pilot shoot for a reality show about Whoopi Goldberg’s family and while laughing it up with Alex and her bestie, Lisa on the shoot I was given the task of dressing her for The Oscars. With two days to prep for a Friday night fitting, I called 12 designers and was able to pull in 25 dresses for Alex’s curvy shape and dash over to her place on a rainy night with a seamstress at my side. From Dalia MacPhee to Theia to Tadashi Shoji to David’s Bridal, I filled a room with beading, tulle, taffeta and chiffon. Oh, and that camera crew with us as well to capture all the glamour and giggles of three girls chatting about gowns.

Silvertone beads and sequins chart directional stripes on the cap-sleeve bodice and a gleaming check pattern down the sweeping skirt of a gauzy evening gown flared by wispy godets. A triangle back cutout provides a skin-baring finish.
