There’s only one day on the Jewish calendar more important than Rosh Hashanah for looking your spanking best. And our favorite Hollywood Hebrews were out in full force at the Academy Awards. Here’s six Jewish things about the Oscars red carpet.
Let’s get the bad ones out of the way first.
Bette Midler’s choice of red flowers (roses, perhaps?) was unfortunate. The capped-sleeve Reem Acra dress looked like it had been embroidered onto her body. But it didn’t really matter because all eyes were on Midler’s beaming face. “She was nice enough to make [the dress] in my size,” she laughed.
Ms. Midler Tweeted earlier: “She actually came to my house!”
