eating at the Oscars

last night was Hollywood's biggest night of the year. everyone looked stunning, Chris Rock killed it as a host, and attention was called to the big (white) elephant in the room. beyond that, Charlize Theron made a point to call attention to the above average burgers that were being served during her backstage pre-show interview, which got me thinking about all of the amazing food that these celebs must chow down on post-show. I'm sure most of the celebs, especially the ladies, avoid heavy meals day of, so once the pressure of looking beyond amazing is off, they're free to celebrate and enjoy quite the spread. Vogue did an overview of the Wolfgang Puck-hosted feast that greets hungry award winners after the show, and here's a taste, below:
