Our #ccOscars14 Oscar Viewing Party at Soho House + swag bag contest!

By Coco


After our amazing day at The Four Seasons it was time to scurry downtown to the Soho House for the main event.

We love the Oscars and after hosting a fun viewing party last year at my place, we thought it would be even better to have a bit more space and invite more people.  We booked the private room at Soho House, created a custom menu that coincided with the Best Film nominees and a delicious specialty drink menu courtesy of Grey Goose.


We ate:

Gravity:   Meteors or meatballs, spicy tomato, pecorino

Her: Assorted pizzette – She encourages him to eat pizza

12 Years A Slave: Mini blackberry tart – the blackberry Chiwetel’s character uses to write the letter

Dallas Buyers Club: Short rib, horseradish, gruyere sliders – the one meal Mcconaughey’s character eats is a steak dinner so the short rib slider was our nod to that

Captain Philips: Beef empanadas – we wanted samosas as they’re eaten in Somalia (where the pirates are from in the movie) but they couldn’t make them small enough so empanadas were a delicious alternative

Philomena – French fries – the movie set in Ireland and though we could have served salad with croutons (the one thing Dench’s character mentioned she loved)  we went with a potato dish that we knew everyone would gobble up

Nebraska- Beer battered fish – the main character drinks a ton of beer and most people enjoy beer battered anything

Wolf Of Wall Street: Spicy shrimp, chili aioli – a stand in for the lobster that Leo’s character throws at the FBI

And we drank (see menu and recipes HERE) Le Fizz and Lower East Side were my fave!




There wasn’t enough seating but look how chivalrous these boys are?



My favorite little guy even showed up in a tux!









We had mini awards and gift bags at the party and Janet (above in red) won as our Best Dressed – how fab is she?  Her prize was a Felony Case snakeskin iphone 5 case.  Because not all of you were able to join us at our event, we wanted to give you all a chance to win 1 of 2 of our insanely packed gift bags!!!

    Jared Leto, super sexy in his white suit – although I would had perfered he wear nothing but his ombre 😉

  2. Kristen Lam says on

    Best dressed, so many choices this year makes it hard to choose!!! But I’m going to pick Charlize Theron in Dior, she looked amazing!!!!

  3. Raquel Bettencourt says on

    Without a doubt the best dresses at the Oscars was Kate Hudson in that Versace gown. Absolutely stunning! I see a new wedding gown trend coming from that for sure.

  4. Joyce Ng says on

    I do agree with you, love love the vintage and elegant style of Kate Hudson !!

  5. Melissa Masternak says on

    Best dressed: Camilla Alves …I loved her pale pink gown

  6. Melissa Masternak says on

    Camilla Alves…loved her in pale pink

  7. My best dressed was lupita Nyongo. She looked absolutely stunning and her acceptance speech was the perfect icing on the cake.

  8. Kira Simon says on

    Loved Charlize Theron! She killed it in that dress!

  9. Shanika says on

    Best dressed was Lupita Nyong’o. I just loved it from head to toe plus the colour choice was on point!!!

  10. Allison McCormack says on

    Olivia Wilde in Valentino!

  11. Natasha Anderson says on

    I truly loved Kate Hudson but as soon as I saw Lupita I just gasped. She was definitely my best dressed, like an ethereal Queen! 🙂

  12. Lieann says on

    I was say Lucia with the plunging neckline and the narobi blue she looked amazing and just the perfect touch of accessory with 🙂

  13. Lieann says on

    I hate auto correct I meant Lupita not Lucia. Like I said on the previous post the plunging neckline and the narobi blue and just the perfect touch of accessories.

  14. Larissa Tabosa Duarte says on

    Omg, there were so many amazing dresses! I also loved Kate Hudson’s dress, also her after party dress was amazing!

  15. Nix says on

    Sandra Bullock in Alexander McQueen. Flattering, flirty, and sexy

  16. Nic says on

    I really liked Sandra Bullock’s blue dress.

  17. Kosi Agamah says on

    My best dressed vote goes to the belle of the ball Lupita Nyong’o. Not only did that pale blue make her skin look even more radiant but it also reminded me of the dress Baby wore at the end of Dirty Dancing. I was semi hoping Jared Leto would be Patrick Swayze and lift her up so she could shine even brighter. 🙂

  18. Not to be unoringinal… but my fave pic for best dressed was also Kate Hudson. She looked very old Hollywood glam in her stunning Atelier Versace gown.

  19. Aliza Scotland says on

    I think hands down best dressed goes to Kate Hudson! Her dress was so elegant and showed just enough skin.

  20. There were a lot of of great numbers. I really like the simplicity of Kelly Osborne’s dress

  21. Shivani says on

    A HUGE toss up between Angelina and Kate Hudson but I have to go with Angie’s Elie Saab! She rocked it beautifully!!

  22. lilyrose says on

    Lupita N’yongo. The Nairobi Blue gown was absolutely timeless and the head piece just tied it all together. She reminded me of Cinderalla going to a ball.

  23. Best dressed was hands down Lupita Nyong’o! She can wear any colour gown and it will compliment her flawless complexion. She added a simple headband and managed to slay! Effortless beauty

  24. raz says on

    Love love love Sandra Bullocks dress so hot and classy

  25. Ann says on

    Best Dressed for me is Cate Blanchett! She just looked like she was floating thru the place. I loved it and I love Armani. Win Win for me.

  26. Lysan says on

    I loved Lupita’s Prada gown. The colour looked flawless on her! xx

  27. Jen Smith says on

    My pick for best dressed goes to LUPITA NYONG’O who wore the ice blue custom Prada flowing dress. She looked so elegant and paired perfectly with the twee headband.

  28. Tamaira Davidson says on

    I loved Cate Blanchett in a stunning gold Armani Prive gown embellished with sequins and gold Swarovski crystals, she wins best dressed in my books
