word has it that there will be a strictly enforced dress code of “white tie and decorations.” i believe that means the full monty for men, including white tie, tails, and wing-collared shirt. oh . . .M . . .G . . . #thisisgoingtobefun!!! i suspect we are in for a delightful show of beautiful and feminine frocks reminiscent of James’ hey day in the late ’40s and early ’50s. fingers crossed!

we’ll hit you back on tuesday morning with a full red carpet report! (yay!)

tell us what you think!!!
