Where The Party is At

Not only does the beginning of a new season bring Fashion Week, but it also means it’s Film Awards Season! If you were my roommate, you would know how I am a little celebrity obsessed… While I was stalking which celebrity wore which designer, I somehow came across the 85th Oscar’s Green Room at Architectural Digest. How did I not know about this?!

For the past eleven years, a designer is chosen to decorate the iconic backstage lounge. The Green Room is where celebrities or performers go before they are needed on stage, similar to a waiting room. Historically, the room was painted green, but after many years, more attention is being given to the space and designers are putting their own spin on it.

This years room is designed by Madeline Stuart, inspired by director Cedric Gibbons (renderings by Ian Espinoza):
