Suzanne Somers with a purple fur at an Oscar party
Suzanne Somers pauses for a photo while arriving at the annual Vanity Fair Oscar party held at Morton's Restaurant in Hollywood, California. The date was February 28, 2005. Suzanne Somers was not nominated for an Academy Award that year -- she was simply attending the party, as so many of us do in the awards ceremony that is life. The winner for best actress that year was Hilary Swank for Million Dollar Baby; the same film won as best picture, and its director Clint Eastwood was named best director. Suzanne Somers was born in 1946, so she turned 59 the year this photo was taken.
