OSCAR WATCH: The Los Angeles outpost of SoHo House is back for the second year in a row, taking over another well-known Hollywood “party house,” which will again be decked out by model-turned-interior designer Amanda Masters and flower-and-fashion diva Ariana Lambert. One of the sponsors, A Diamond Is Forever, plans to outdo the other Oscar spas cropping up around town like weeds with its Diamond Aquifer Holistic Retreat, where triple A-listers can get beauty treatments incorporating the stone, from gem-therapy massages to diamond acupuncture facials to “diamond” bright teeth whitenings. Of course, 32 carats/$6 million worth of wearable bling will be provided by the Steinmentz Diamond Group....Also catching up fast in the gem game is the house of Kwiat, which is sponsoring a retreat at The Four Seasons along with Revlon, where it will unveil the jewelry that Charlize Theron’s stylist Lisa Michelle Boyd has designed for the Oscars. Finally, Stuart Weitzman will create an exclusive Oscar shoe for one lucky actress (who will be revealed at a dinner on Feb. 24), embellished with a pair of Marilyn Monroe's favorite earrings. At the Estée Lauder Beauty Spa at the Peninsula, among the freebies is a specially-designed Michael Kors handbag....Meanwhile, the year’s freshest Best Actress nominee, Catalina Sandino Moreno, will wear either Kors or Roberto Cavalli on the Big Night, as her stylist Jessica Paster let slip Tuesday night during the Cavalli dinner at the designer’s new Rodeo Drive boutique.

IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS: Apparently, editor in chief Dan Peres’ Q&A with Britney Spears and Kevin Federline in the March issue of Details (like WWD, owned by Fairchild Publications) put him in the mood for matrimony. Peres is keeping mum about a possible end to his single status, but a source said he proposed to his longtime girlfriend, actress Sarah Wynter, earlier this week. Monday was, of course, Valentine’s Day, while Wynter’s birthday was Tuesday. Now the couple also will be able to celebrate the anniversary of their engagement in mid-February, which makes Peres either the world's biggest romantic or the world's biggest pragmatist. No word yet on a date.
