It was a great, big, beautiful tomorrow at Disneyland on May 9 for the bow of Disney’s adventure “Tomorrowland,” director Brad Bird‘s nod to Walt Disney’s vision of a utopian future in which science rules.
Disney pulled out all the stops by walling off Disneyland’s Tomorrowland to premiere guests, transporting them away from the throngs of park visitors into a party world of their own, complete with no waits to ride on all of the land’s attractions. That’s right. The longest wait was five minutes for Space Mountain. The vastness of Tomorrowland made for one of the least crowded premiere parties ever. It was a dream come true for Disneyland enthusiasts and jaded premiere attendees alike.

Last night was the biggest event of the year for the movie industry. So it seems only fitting that the film that will be on everyone’s lips at the 2016 Oscars should be represented in some way. Why not with fashion? Willow Bay did not disappoint. The wife of current Disney CEO Bob Iger was in a Rodarte Yoda evening gown that was first featured at 2014's New York Fashion Week. The Rodarte collection also featured Star Wars gowns with images of Luke Skywalker, C-3P0, the Death Star, and more. Did Willow Bay choose Yoda because he is one of her favorite characters? Was it because the black and gold trim suited her complexion? Or is Bob Iger trying to tell us something about “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Perhaps Ghost!Yoda is in our cinematic future.

3. Tim McGraw singing “I’m Not Gonna Miss You.”
4. Opening number, “Moving Pictures,” made us fall in love with movies all over again.

Oscar gold was complemented by silver gowns on the red carpet for the 87th Academy Awards.
The evening’s trends were all embodied by one red carpet maven: Lady Gaga, in her silver Azzedine Alaia gown with red elbow-length gloves that weren’t unanimously loved by viewers.
Gaga was joined in silver by lead actress nominee Felicity Jones, who rocked an embellished silver Alexander McQueen frock. Laura Dern, nominated for supporting actress, also got the memo, sporting a pewter strapless Alberta Ferretti gown that recalled an elegant suit of armor. She said her turquoise stone ring was in memory of lung cancer patients such as “Wild” author Cheryl Strayed’s mother, as that’s the color of the American Lung Assn. Lung Force initiative .
