Nuns on the Carpet: Gwyneth Paltrow and Shailene Woodley Oscars 2012
A couple more Oscars posts I think and then we’ll get back to talking about knitting.
What was with all the nuns on the Oscars red carpet? Are they doing a remake of the Sound of Music or something?
Gwyneth went all Mother Superior on us – an utterly gorgeous dress though she’s not a good enough actress to make the born again virgin stuff convincing.
While Shailene Woodley turned up as the demure young penitent.
Gloriously, and rather randomly there was even a real nun walking the carpet. Mother Dolores is a former co-star of Elvis’ who now stars in a documentary about her life as a nun.
And speaking of the Sound of Music there were huge cheers at our Oscar party when Captain von Trapp FINALLY received his Oscar – a moment spoiled only by his refusal to lead the auditorium in a rousing chorus of ‘Edelweiss’.
