I attended the Toast To The Red Carpet Live event in Hollywood today. We didn’t hit any traffic so I arrived over an hour early! It was a little weird so I decided to walk up Sunset and get some coffee.
They answered our questions and we dished about what they expected (or wanted) to see on the carpet.
Brooke Burke said shoes never get their moment to shine on the red carpet.
And Carson Kressley hadn’t even decided what he was going to wear yet!? He brought four different jackets and said he would decide last minute.
Molly Simms is 6 months pregnant and absolutely gorgeous.
They were all super nice and seemed like friends in real life
We also met celebrity chef Katie Lee. She created five recipes inspired by the Best Picture nominees. After hanging out at the set and meeting the hosts we headed to the W hotel to watch the live red carpet show.
Added bonus: The champagne was from Domain Chandon my favorite winery in Napa (because they have sparkling wine!) Oh, and Ben and I visited there when we were super drunk on love so I remember it very fondly.
And now I present the five recipes created by Katie Lee.
Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes, inspired by “The Descendants”
Chili-Parmesan Popcorn and Peanuts inspired by “Moneyball”
Brie and Spicy Apple Chutney on Baguette Toasts inspired by “Midnight in Paris”
Unfried Chicken Skewers and Homemade BBQ Sauce inspired by “The Help”
Spotlight Cookies inspired by “The Artist”
I tried one cookie and one cupcake and then stuck to fruit. My grandma used to say you don’t have to keep Lenten promises on Sundays. I know she made that up, but we’re going by Grams’ Bible today folks. God Bless her little heart.)
