Fashion Review - 80th Academy Awards!

By Veronica Viljoen

The Academy Awards hosted a fashion runway review of reflective looks of Hollywood's Style Icons over the years at 8949 Wilshire Boulevard, Beverly Hills, Februray 13, just days before the 80th Academy Awards at the world renowned Kodak Theatre.

Oscar, Fashion Coordinator, Patty Fox, (above) focused the spotlight on stars whose sense of personal style earned them iconic standing in the world of fashion.

In addition to viewing the georgeous gowns down the runway, listening to Style Expert, Steven Cojocaru, E Entertainment! was an added highlight of the progam to me.
