2013 Oscars: Robin Roberts


 
 
Don’t fret- a post with all the details (good and bad) from the Oscars will follow soon but as I was going through the photos and my notes from last night I realized I could not just drop this person in amongst all the other fluff. One year ago, at the Oscars, Robin Roberts felt unusually fatigued. Later she would learn she had a very rare form of bone marrow cancer that leads to leukemia. She took an extended leave of absence from ABC, underwent a bone marrow transplant, and only returned to work last week. 
This is a woman who has faced death, struggled with pain, uncertainty, and fear and yet exudes an effortless grace and charm. She is, without a doubt, my favorite look of the night. Her Marc Bouwer dress is gorgeous- the fabric has beautiful drape, the color is rich, and the style timeless. While she accepted well-wishes, she made it clear the night was not about her- which extraordinary in and of itself. On a night when the best of Hollywood was swathed, cloaked, and bejeweled she was the classiest act in town.
