It’s Oscar weekend in LA! It’s been a whirlwind few days, primarily because one of my best friends (the famous KSned!) is in town from London, so I’ve been juggling all the Oscar activities with her visit.

On Friday, I spent the afternoon riding around town in the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Force car. My ride was the brand-new 2012 Mercedes CLS63 AMG, a 5.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8 beauty with 516 lbs of torque. (I grew up a Mercedes baby; my family had two 600s that my dad was obviously enormously proud of.) Everywhere we went, heads turned, jaws dropped, and several people flashed us thumbs-ups and stopped us to talk about the car.

The Mercedes-Benz Fashion Force had previous tooled through the streets of New York during fashion week, as I read on my friend Jordan’s blog Ramshackle Glam . I wasn’t sure how this experiment would translate–we were searching for people with the best street style–since nobody walks in LA.

But lo! My trusty driver and I put our heads together and decided the best bet was Rodeo Drive: and, in the end, it delivered! All of the people I found looked absolutely adorable and super-stylish–I filled out questionnaires with what they were wearing, but had to turn them in at the end of the day, alas. Still, I was surprised to discover that most of the people I approached were Australian or Canadian–who knew? Also, I ran into Sofia Vergara on Rodeo Drive and Kris Jenner in the Montage Hotel, but wasn’t able to talk to either of them. Blast.

Still, all in all, a super fun day!
