Carey Mulligan brought her own utensils to the Oscars

I know the Oscars were last week, but I just wanted to draw your attention to Carey Mulligan’s Prada dress, which was adorned with miniature scissors, forks and all kinds of cutlery. How cute is that? It’s almost steampunk. I love it.

I attended a special screening of the Oscars sponsored by Samsung’s 3D HD televisions. This dress would have been cool to see in 3D, but I must have missed this one. (A note on the Oscars’ red carpet in 3D: While the idea of watching TV in 3D is cool — yes, you have to wear glasses — I’m not sure a red carpet event was the best way to experience 3D for home use for the first time. I think 3D at home would be better used in watching sports, such as a football game. The Super Bowl in 3D would have been awesome!)

  • The L.A. Planning Commission approved Rick Caruso’s mixed-use project at 8500 Burton Way. The 88-unit apartment building planned for near the intersection of La Cienega and San Vicente boulevards will include a Trader Joe’s on the ground floor. More at CurbedLA.
  • The Wall Street Journal has a story on Pinkberry’s latest capital infusion: $5.8 million of a $15 million round. Here’s a story I wrote back in February about the froyo biz in L.A.
  • Bravo is coming out with a new reality show that will follow the staff at Fred Segal Santa Monica, per Reuters. The network is also premiering “NYC Prep,” which looks like it’ll be a real-life “Gossip Girl” so hopefully we’ll see lots of pretty clothes (and bad behavior!).
