The hot summer weather is upon us, even if it’s not officially summer. Seems mother nature (and global warming) isn’t paying attention to the calendar. So when I received an invitation to attend the AFI Life Achievement Awards ceremony at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, I knew I wanted to wear something effortless. This dress, a diaphanous backless dream created by Octavio Carlin, won the contest. Together we bore witness to a history-making night celebrating the musical genius of John Williams, aka the man who has scored my life’s most memorable moments. I chose to highlight my back because, well, I like it. Dressing made simple; wear clothes that celebrate your best features, and when the temperatures rise, choose something as lightweight as possible.
