Dress Disaster: Oscar Gowns Go Missing at the Airport

Imagine this: You’ve sifted through hundreds of dresses for an oh-so-special occasion and finally found the perfect one. And then… it gets lost at the airport. Pretty rough, right? Now imagine you’re the one responsible for losing said dress, and it’s for – wait for it – an actress attending the Academy Awards. Well, this horror movie–like plotline actually happened to Donna Karan PR rep Aliza Licht yesterday. And get ready to grab some popcorn, because she chronicled the whole ordeal live on Twitter.

Screen Shot 2014-02-25 at 5.04.50 PM

Lucky for her (warning: spoiler alert ahead), the dresses were found. I have to admit, though, as I read each of her tweets, I became less and less nervous for Aliza. And no, it wasn’t because I thought the dresses would soon be found. It was because the girl is straight-up hilarious in the face of a job-threatening situation. Worst-case scenario, the dresses were lost forever, and she would have been fired. But on the bright side? She would have wound up with a pretty good screenplay on her hands and a great Candy Crush score. Sounds like a solid ending to me.

‪@MLahage: Fashion can define a moment in social and political identity, is today’s ‪#fashion too safe? #NYFW
Good question. Let’s go ask Lady Gaga.

‪@peoplemag: David Beckham takes a sweet selfie with the kids at wife Victoria’s fashion show. PIC: ‪http://peoplem.ag/ttqhm

Cool as this is, we can’t help thinking it’s an egregious waste of chocolate.

‪@CMYKaboom: I can tell its Fashion Week because all the in-cab commercials are about fashion. “Buy shoes,” they whisper to me in a seductive purr. ‪#nyfw
We’ve never needed to be seduced into buying shoes. Not once.

@scalzi: Reading a bunch of depressing articles first thing in the morning probably wasn’t the right way to start the day.
Well, you came to the right place. Let’s fix that.

@Mediabistro: Twitter’s Grammy Traffic Is Flat, And So Are the Grammys’ TV Ratings http://on.recode.net/1jEcRmK  (via @Recode)
Maybe it’s because some of us watched Sean & Catherine’s wedding instead. #TheBachelor #oops

‪@NYCeditor: Boot report: Mostly clear, but definitely icy. Yes to boots.
We agree. We’ll continue to agree until March, at the earliest.

‪@HotelFoxtrot: I will never love anyone as much as I love hitting snooze.

@BostonDotCom: Well, this changes things. Toothpaste now comes in a mint chocolate flavor. ‪http://bo.st/1dKZ8CD  ‪pic.twitter.com/NihbPbcZSf
This would just make us want more chocolate. Purpose, consider yourself defeated.

‪@LitAgentMarini: Hate leaving messages for people! I always sound RIDICULOUS cause I forget what I want to say!
The possibility of having to leave a voicemail is precisely why we text first.

‪@tyrabanks: So you know when you’re hungry but too tired to get out of bed to get something to eat…yeah, me neither.
Tyra. JLaw. Us. #BFFs #prettyplease

‪@TIME: Just how addicted to the Internet are you? Take our quiz ‪http://ti.me/1d66L6l 
We already know that we don’t want to know.

‪@SportsCenter: Marshawn Lynch made it six minutes and 21 seconds into Super Bowl Media Day before leaving.
Which just barely beats our record for walking down Newbury Street without trying something on.

Sorry, but there is nothing – nothing – bad about coffee. #ourfirstlove

Okay, it’s decided. We can officially visit China now.

The ReTweet on Rue La La

‪@Mediabistro: ‪#mbchats What do you think about nightclubs banning photos? ‪http://mbist.ro/1cN5FMy  (via ‪@PRNewser)
We think our social media feeds are about to get a lot less interesting.

‪@jenniferweiner: Lucy’s chiron still insists that she is a “free spirit.” She arrives in the same limo as a psychiatric nurse. Coincidence? ‪#bachelor
Regardless, we may have to steal that job title. Wonder if free-spiriting comes with any tax benefits.

‏‪@katespadeny: skip the gym. go ice skating.
You don’t have to tell us twice.

‪@alexa_chung: Overheard: ‘What I like about this guy is that he puts the apostrophe in the right place when he texts “you’re”‘. <– WHAT A CATCH!
If the good grammar came with dinner and a nice bottle of wine, it would work just fine for us.

‪@bryanboy: I’ve come to the conclusion that winter is my season
Can we borrow that conclusion, at least until the #polarvortex has passed?

‪@VintageCellars: What was your favorite ‪#wine you discovered in 2013?
After all that holiday fun, we’d venture to say that no wine is our favorite. Until next week.

‪@peoplemag: Selfie was the word of the year, and even our pets got involved! See the cutest furball selfies of 2013: ‪http://peoplem.ag/rG0yb 
If 2014 is even half as cute as this, we fear we might hit critical mass by, like, March.

‪@lindsaycwrites: I need to put on a bra and act like a human being today.
Says who? Today is a fleece-pants-all-day day, as far as we’re concerned.

‪@ComicBookGrrl: New reality show: ‘Top Chef MMA’. When the host doesn’t like a dish, instead of complaining he straps on the gloves and fights the cook.
We’ll even pass on watching the Rose Parade if this is somehow magicked into existence.

‪@scalzi: I’m having cookies for breakfast. Judge me all you want.
No judgment. Just jealousy, as our resolutions kicked in approximately 12 hours ago. #hello2014
