Before gracing the stage at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards, the presenters and winners relax backstage in a temporarily-transformed oasis created by a noted designer selected by Architectural Digest. For 2011, AD chose Michael S. Smith, who was previously appointed in 2010 by President Obama to the Committee for the Preservation of the White House. For Hollywood's big night out, Smith looked back to the 1940s and the elegant library of famed studio executive Jack Warner (as in Warner Bros.), who obviously knew how to relax in style!
We were inspired to create an ensemble keyed off the luxe monochromatic vibe of the room, the sophisticated color palette, & mad-elegant furnishings. In particular, the muted metallic touches whisper rather than shout "silver screen siren" but a vibrant pink notebook adds a fun splash of color, plus it's pretty much mandatory for jotting down your acceptance speech. Here's where to get the look:
