The Aegis Foundation threw a fabulous party last night benefiting both the Smile Network and the Aegis Foundation.  The 21st Annual Oscar Experience Minneapolis was enjoyed at the lavish Muse in downtown Minneapolis.  The venue was filled with elegant women, dapper gentlemen, delectable food, and large viewing screens for all to experience the Oscars extravaganza happening in Los Angeles, CA.

William Panzarella {Founder and Executive Officer of the Aegis Foundation} greeted guests, worked the room with a smile, and even handed out Swag bags at the end of the night.  He was genuinely a pleasure to meet.  He has been quoted saying, “Giving back.  It’s a simple concept.”  Here I am with Kathie Moss {my friend}, William and Natalie Auger.

Kathie, William Panzarella, Tammy & NatalieThe evening was co-hosted by the splendid Christopher Hopkins, owner of ReVamp Salon and Spa, who graced our stage in a noteworthy velvet jacket.

Tammy, Christopher & KathieWe all Ooo’d and Awwh’d as the A-list celebs sauntered across the Red Carpet.  Here are a few of my favorites.

Gorgeous gowns Oscars 2014[Sandra Bullock in Alexander McQueen, Amy Adams in Gucci Premiere, Lupita Nyong’o in Prada custom, Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture, Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive, and Chrissy Teigen in Monique Lhuillier dress]

And I kept whispering to myself all night… Why did Anne, Charlize and Olivia have to copy me?!  Really, they couldn’t have come up with something on their own?  I thought I saw their stylist stocking me this past week.  OK, all joking aside, these talented women looked exceptionally striking in their monochromatic sheath gowns.  {And here’s an ecstatic me receiving my faux-Oscar}

Why do they have to copy me Ohhh, Another category, another award.  *sigh*  Like Ellen said, I’m just greedy.  Oh wait, that was Amy Adams she was talking about, not me.  Sometimes I get confused.  Ha!  In my mind, this was us ladies receiving the Best Costume Design or the Best Picture Award, I couldn’t decide.

We'd like to thank our husbands...{Because} the Muse was all a’glow:
