He will give fans an up-close-and-personal look into red carpet style and take fans back in time with the "Evolution of Style" page. Julian continues to act as Senior VP, Strategic Director of Trends for McCann Erickson.

New to Oscar.com this year will be a live blog during the show by humorist and Los Angeles Times columnist Joel Stein. Stein will be blogging live from the red carpet during arrivals and then backstage during the show with up-to-the minute commentary.
