Wolfgang Puck is here to make sure no one at the Oscars ever goes hungry — even before the awards start!

The celebrity chef — who is famously in charge of the extravagant Governors Ball menu following the awards show each year — brought his sons, Byron, 21, Alexander, 10, and Oliver, 9, along with him on the red carpet to hand out sweet and savory treats to reporters and fellow attendees.

In addition to gold-dusted mini chocolate replicas of the coveted Oscar statue, the Puck clan brought along 1,800 pieces of sushi, chicken pot pie, king crabs, potatoes and caviar, and lobster.

“For Leo DiCaprio I said I cannot bring a whole bison, so I brought a crab here a King crab from Alaska,” Puck joked with Ryan Seacrest in reference to the actor’s nominated role in The Revenant.

And how did the kids help out with the menu? “I helped peel the carrots,” Alexander said, while Oliver took charge of the chicken pot pies — proving the cooking gene truly does run in the family.

This was just a small taste of what the stars will be feasting on after the show, with a 2,600 lb. raw seafood bar and a 5-gallon homemade hot fudge chocolate fountain (among many other of Puck’s signature treats) expected at the Governors’ Ball.

“Meet me in the kitchen [afterwards] we’ll have a little caviar and a little black truffle,” Puck told Seacrest. Just another perk of being a celeb on Oscar night!

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
