Madonna + Mackie = Oscars

Today is Hollywood's self proclaimed 'biggest day!'  Wow... I hate to be Mrs. Hollywood, their anniversary didn't even make the cut.  

Madonna performed "Sooner or Later" from Dick Tracy at the Oscars in 1991.  This was the infamous year that she arrived at the award show on the arm of one, Mr. Michael Jackson.  She wore a bead and sequin encrusted white gown with a luxurious fox fur stole that only Bob Mackie can do correctly.

The performance was haunting and beautiful and the Mackie gown added a certain authenticity to the obvious homage to Marilyn Monroe.

Happy Oscar Day!!
