Ahhh so much to talk about! I'm working, blogging and googling at the same time... my computer is about to crash! but on to the good stuff
First- 2011 Academy Awards...
There were the usual stunners - Chanel, Marchesa, Elie Saab...
Kunis killed it in this gown. I thought it was J.mendel at first (because I was still in mental shock from seeing the dresses in person... more on that later) but of course it was Elie Saab's Spring/Summer Couture collection
I'm partial to anything nude, sparkly and fitted.. gahhh
^ Beauty Award goes to- Michelle Williams. God I love her
A surprise hit - Kelly Osbourne in this lovely dove grey Tony Ward couture gown
Some pieces that weren't on the red carpet but should've.
"This amazingly beautiful cocoon is made from carefully layered flower petals. The creator? A bee. Specifically, the Osmia bee. Four different species of this bee, Osmia avosetta, Osmia lunata, Osmia rhodoensis, and Osmia tergestensis, make these unique floral bundles.
Discovered on the same day by two different teams in Turkey and in Iran, these flower nests were written about by an international team of scientists that included professors of plant protection, entomology, invertebrate zoology, and agriculture. (Download and read the entire paper here.)

The bees bite off one petal at a time and flies each individual petal back to the nest. When the mother bee has amassed enough petals, she layers the petals into a delicate shell, holding the pod together with nectar and a thin layer of mud.
The bees seem to use different types of flowers to construct their pods, including Geranium, Linum (flax), Helianthemum (sun roses), and others, and did not seem to prefer one type of flower over another.
Inside, the bee will deposit one egg, before sealing up the flower pod by folding down the petals. The baby bee will hatch and grow inside, before emerging in the spring from its flowery home."
After first meeting as students nearly 10 years ago, Prince William and Kate Middleton returned to St. Andrews University in Scotland Friday.
"This is a very special moment for Catherine and me," William, 28, told more than 600 students and reporters. "It feels like coming home." (An additional 300 fans waited outside the university's grounds).Despite the strong winds, Middleton, 29, kept her poise in a red coat, black leather gloves and her favorite suede LK Bennet boots.
According to an onlooker, William "was attentive to Kate, often asking her, 'All good?' or 'OK?', which seemed to reassure her.
"He is absolutely a gentleman. Everywhere Kate walks, he would keep an eye on her to make sure she was alright," the onlooker tells us. "And when they walked through doors or entrances, he would always let her go through first, putting a hand on her back."
More than anything, she's marrying a true gentleman!
