YES - It is the Oscars on Sunday so put the champagne on ice and get your party frocks on!

This should be THE biggest party night of the year but, unfortunately, for me at least, this year is a complete and utter non-event because I am not that bothered about any of the films on the shortlists.

The full list of nominees is here:

I will be backing War Horse and The Help on the night as they are both films which I loved and really enjoyed this past year. However, in all honesty, not that bothered!

My review of War Horse is here:

Hmmm. It will be interesting to see how The Artist does on the other side of the pond... Surely War Horse will scoop something for Speilberg. I hope so, but I'm still emotionally invested in Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy, so I'd like that to get recognised too, although it's more unlikely. Am awaiting dvd releases to even see any of the others – Anonymous and My Week With Marilyn in particular.

The good news is that the beautiful BC is known to be attending in a sharp new blue Spencer Hart suit with his slightly strange Star Trek related hair cut, so it can't be all bad. We should get a pretty picture or two at least. :-))

As usual, you are way more clued up than me!

I did not know BC was attending, much less in a Spencer Hart suit, and I still have not seen his new hair cut!

This leads to the pic of Benedict in his Spencer Hart Suit with the new hair cut. It's from the Spencer Hart twitter account. Unfortunately due to my ineptitude with links you'll probably have to type it in yourself.

Yes, thank you for that ... it worked!

But I do not like! The suit or the haircut!

That is indeed the one! :-)

The hair's a bit weird all long at the front, but it's probably just like that so it can be slicked back for whatever look he needs for the film. I don't mind the style too much. That is definitely not the best pic of his hair at the moment!

However I'm not a great fan of these light blue suits he goes for. See the hair without the suit and I think he looks much better: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150588100563063.388175.90824638062&type=1

Anyway, sorry, I seem to have derailed the post about Oscars into a Benedict style discussion! It is interesting however how very different he can look, and that he would rather cut and dye his own hair than be bewigged. :-)

You have NOT derailed the post about the Oscars - there was nothing to derail! That is what I mean about the Oscars this year - a total non-event. Talking about Benedict's hair is more interesting than talking about any of the films or the actors! And we NEVER talk about Benedict's hair; which just goes to show how boring the Oscars are this year, BC attendance notwithstanding!

I like the hair colour. I love him with black/very dark brown hair, but I'm not so sure about the cut.

Yay my link worked. I'm getting better with all this technical stuff.

Yay for you and technical "stuff"!

Still ignoring the topic and harping on about the suit...

I was not going mad, or colourblind, or both. That suit was indeed BLUE. Cut and paste from the people who make it their business to know at http://wearsherlock.tumblr.com/

The top left/right images show Benedict at his suit fitting in Spencer Hart’s pop-up tailors at the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood. Images courtesy of Spencer Hart: TWITTER / BLOG (More information about the fitting at their blog).

SUIT / On the red carpet
Benedict wears a tailored Spencer Hart single breasted suit in dark Midnight Blue. The suit jacket features three pockets, peaked lapels and three cuff buttons. Beneath the jacket he wears a low cut black silk waistcoat.


Well whatever. It fitted him like a glove and looked fabulous. I'll shut up about this now. :-))

I think I will appoint you our new Fashion Editor!
