Polkadots and Pizazz; An Evening with Diane Keaton

An Evening with Diane Keaton
My daughter and I had a very relaxing Mother's Day together doing girly stuff like pedicures and shopping.
We've been looking forward to attending the Smarttalk series finale together at Wilmington's Dupont Theatre. We both love Diane Keaton, and I can't think of a better way to cap off Mother's Day!
Diane Keaton looked fabulous in her polkadot skirt, black leggings and classic turtle neck top!
Diane has starred in more than 50 films. My favorite is "Something's Gotta Give" with Jack Nicholson and Keanu Reeves. My daughter loves "The First Wives Club." I love her style, and I've copied her Annie Hall look many times. 
Movies, fashion, and family: Diane beautifully crafted her life story onto a large screen, photo montage "Litttle Memories:Lost & Found." Her combination of movie clips, fashion shots, and family home movies really gave an intimate look at her life and career.
Diane became a Mom late in life, and said she looks like the grandma at the daycare. However, Diane's idea of beauty in people is a combination of love + admiration. Memories of her Mom are her inspiration to fight against the concept that age is an act of submission. She wants to experience life and express the way the world affects her. And she does this so well. 
Happy Mother's Day: It was heart warming to hear Diane's admiration for her Mom, and it was cool to find out that she truly inspired her and supported her dreams to become a famous actress, as well as her fun fashion style. Both shared a love of scrapbooking, and Diane treasures these along with the detailed journals her Mom kept.
Intimacy and Ordinary: Diane helped both parents battle tough illnesses. Her father's revelation that he wished he'd taken more risks inspired Diane to adopt children of her own. Diane shared that her children, Dexter and Duke, are the best thing that ever happened to her, and they give her many spontaneous life lessons. I could totally relate when she said, "Nothing can outshine a mother listening to her children talk." She also said "intimacy and ordinary" are now her inspiration. I'm so happy Diane was able to become a Mom and experience this joy!
Hollywood: I loved the movie "Something's Gotta Give." Diane shared , she adores Jack Nicholson, and he was definately the better kisser and age appropriate:) During filming, Jack teased her about her hair rollers. Steve Martin was another favorite to work with in the "Father of the Bride." Diane described him as "charming and a perfect gentleman."
64 Years Young: Besides her film career, she's very active in home restoration, and at 64, she's a spokes-woman for a L'Oreal cosmetics and and she flips houses.

Diane Keaton was a great highlight for the 2010 Smarttalk series, and I can't wait for next season.
Back stage with Diane was awesome!!!!!!!!!
