The Year of Modesty: Oscars 2014

As i sat to watch the Oscars on TV a couple of nights ago, i was happy to notice that more & more stars were turning out to the Awards ceremony and After Party in more modest outfits than ever before. I saw length and sleeves! I saw age appropriateness for some. And i noted two things:

1) Camilla Alvez's glorious dress transporting everyone back to old Hollywood glamour at its best; and

2) A fellow Muslimah, Zaineb Abdul Nabi, on stage. She was one of 6 out of 1,000 film student applicants chosen to attend the prestigious ceremony.
