Nuns are always chic, of course. Black and white and fashionable all over. Such staunch minimalism is the very essence of elegance, don’t you think? But this just isn’t any old nun who got invited to the Oscars. This is none other than the Mother Prioress at the Abbey of Regina Laudis in Connecticut aka the former Dolores Hart. And you remember Dolores Hart, of course: The actress who starred in 10 movies between 1957 and 1963 – and famously gave Elvis Presley his first on-screen kiss – who then left behind her promising career, and a fiancé, to become a nun. She’s the subject of the Oscar-nominated short God is the Bigger Elvis, and that’s why she was there. As to wtf Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monoco were doing at the ceremony (and sitting in ROW Z!), I have no idea. But they sure do add a dash of class to an otherwise dull evening.
