In early 2014 my dear friend Tony Johnson was nominated for an Oscar for sound on the second Hobbit movie. I was supremely excited and a tiny bit envious of him and his wife Jacqui until they announced that they had got me a ticket to go too. How amazeballs is that! But the big question: what to wear? In the end I had this pink silk number made by a lovely Auckland dressmaker but once the Oscars were done and dusted, I found myself still wanting to wear it. And so I did. And still do.
