Legendary Oscar Gowns Go On Display

Barbra's Infamous 1968 Transparent Scassi Gown is one of the dresses going on display at this years "A Celebration Of Oscar Fashion". The event is a private affair hosted by Laura Ziskin and Andre Leon Tally for invited guests, press, stylists and Academy members.

"There's no way anybody could have worn that other than Barbra Streisand...it was that moment in fashion."

Barbra makes Best Dressed List for 2006

Barbra has a mention in Mr. Blackwell's Best Dressed List for 2006. We presume the nod is for Barbra's tour outfits, as this was her only public appearance of 2006.

Streisand Foundation Update

Thanks to the Streisand Foundation for this update.

Hi Craig,

Since the tour wrapped a month or so ago, the Foundation has committed $1 million dollars to the Clinton Global Initiative. In addition, the Foundation has awarded $10,000 to arts and music programs in 14 inner-city schools in each of the US cities Barbra performed. There will be a matching $10,000 equipment donation by Sony, Ms. Streisand's record company, to follow as well.

Live CD Confusion

I've had so many emails from people confused over when the Streisand Live CD (from the recent tour) will be released. Some websites are saying February, while others are saying March. I spoke to Barbra's record label yesterday, and they said nothing has been confirmed. The confirmed release date will be forthcoming. I'll post it (along with track listing), as soon as I get it. You can pre-order the album here, and you'll receive an email when the CD is shipped.

As for the DVD from the show -- I have a feeling that it's a LONG way off yet. There's no official word on the release at present.

Happy New Year

Dear Barbra Fan,

Happy New Year to you ALL! Thanks for your support during 2006.

I hope to have some more Barbra News for you very soon.
