Kiss Me, Kate Aug30

Kiss Me, Kate

La Kate graces the cover of the latest issue of Vogue (that infamous September issue), and inside are some positively gorgeous shots of her July wedding to The Kills guitarist, Jamie Hince. Vogue.com has even more great shots of Kate’s special day. “I wanted it to be kind of dreamy and 1920s, when everything is soft-focus,” says Kate. “The Great Gatsby. The code name was GG for a while. That light and that kind of fun decadence. It’s rock-’n’-roll Great Gatsby!” When it came to finding a dress for her special day, Moss turned to her close friend, beleaguered designer, John Galliano. She wanted “a classic Galliano, those chiffon thirties kind. I’ve lived in his dresses for years, and they just make me feel so comfortable. But it’s so much more couture, couture, couture. Oh, my God, the work that’s going into the dress!” Enjoy the photos!   Photos via...

Etro Retro Aug23

Etro Retro

The weather has finally started to turn (ever so slightly) in New York. Last night when we went to dinner it was actually chilly. Mother Nature probably has a few more tricks up her sleeve before we’re actually into full-on sweater weather, but a boy can dream – can’t he? When it comes to style, I always joke that I’m a bit of a preppy grandpa. I love a chunky cardigan, an elbow patch… you catch my drift. I was doing a little window shopping last night, and came across this Etro suede-patch cardigan. Ain’t she a beaut? Now, to be perfectly honest I already own this same kind of sweater in probably half a dozen variations – but what’s one more, right? What makes this one so great, is the richness of those oversized patches. Sweater, consider yourself...

Beluga Sevruga Aug11

Beluga Sevruga

It’s nearly Friday, so I thought that we could all use a little something to get the day going. Beluga whales are colloquially known as sea canaries, due to the special squeaks, squeals, and whistles with which they communicate. After having been serenaded by a Mariachi band, perhaps this Beluga will be able to add a little extra flavor to his repertoire! A friend of mind passed this video along, and well, I’ve already watched it numerous times. Click on the photo to check it...

Book of Mormon Aug03

Book of Mormon

This past Saturday we were fortunate to have caught a performance of what is easily the hottest ticket in all of New York – The Book of Mormon. It has been sold out since it opened this past Spring, and following its massive success at the Tony Awards (where it won 9 awards, including Best Musical) it has been the absolute talk of the town. South Park’s Trey Park and Matt Stone teamed up with Robert Lopez (of Avenue Q fame) to create this original new musical – a deliciously salty, religious satire about a group of young Mormon missionaries who travel to a remote village in Uganda. It’s heart warming, super smart, and rip-roaringly hilarious! Run don’t walk! Here’s a little taste of the fantastic soundtrack – which is insanely catchy, and available here. Book of Mormon –...

Christine D’Ornano Aug02

Christine D’Ornano

Last year Elle Decor published a feature on the gorgeous London home of cosmetics executive (and scion), Christine D’Ornano. Over the weekend I picked up a copy of Elle Decor España, and immediately recognized the bold and cheerful interiors. D’Ornano shares the Notting Hill home with her financier husband, Marzouk and their three adorable daughters: Isabelle, Alma, and Inès. Having grown up in a glamorous Paris apartment, style, it would seem, is inherent to Christine. The house is wonderfully sophisticated, but fun and eclectic – with an ease that makes it a beautiful family home. A few of the highlights (for me), include the fabulous pair of Claude Lalanne chairs, the dreamy, blue George Smith sofa, the pink walls of the drawing room, and those yellow dining room chairs! Enjoy the photos.   Photos via Elle Decor & Elle Decor...

Linda Fargo Jul27

Linda Fargo

As SVP of Women’s Fashion and Store Presentation at the venerable Bergdorf Goodman – Linda Fargo is one of the most powerful women in fashion. Remember Meryl Streep’s silver coiffure in The Devil Wears Prada? Guess who was the inspiration. In terms of style and influence, Linda is an arbiter among arbiters – and positively one of the chicest women around. My office is in a building that counts a number of prominent fashion designers as tenants, and a few weeks ago (following an iced coffee run) I rode the elevator with Ms. Fargo. I don’t remember what she was wearing, but she looked chic as hell – and in nearly 100 degree heat, no less! Not only does she have an impeccable sense of style, but she clearly has fun with fashion. Viva La Fargo!                  ...

War Horse Jul26

War Horse

Set during World War I, and based on the novel by Michael Morpurgo, War Horse is the story of a British boy, Albert, and the extraordinary bond that he shares with his horse, Joey. When Britain goes to war, Joey is sold to the calvary. Distraught, and determined to save his horse, Albert enlists in the army – and begins the treacherous journey to find Joey and to bring him home. War Horse is nothing short of remarkable – from the drama and heartache, to the magnificent staging and haunting score. What is most astonishing about this play, however, are the horse puppets – created by South Africa’s venerable Handspring Puppet Company. To say that this play has been a huge success would be an understatement. Since its 2007 London premiere, War Horse has received numerous accolades – including 5 Tony Awards at last month’s awards show (including the Tony Award for Best Play). Hollywood also took notice of this special story, and a Steven Spielberg directed film version will open later this year. Check out the trailer here. War Horse – Only Remembered...

J.Crew Collection Jul25

J.Crew Collection

As an interior designer I am always searching for inspiration, and in terms of what is current, and what’s coming next, nothing is more prescient than fashion. I was perusing the J.Crew website yesterday, and came across the lookbook for the latest collection. As always, the photos are brimming over with gorgeous color inspiration. Gem tones have been so huge recently, and by the look of things, bold color will continue in a big way!   Photos via...

Amy Winehouse Jul23

Amy Winehouse

Although I can’t say that I was surprised, I was most definitely saddened to hear about the death of Amy Winehouse earlier today. Navigating the loss of someone who is already so lost is always a peculiar experience, isn’t it? Amy’s talent was so hugely special, and her sophomore album, Back to Black so astronomically successful – that she seemed almost predestined for greater heights. But with genius often comes madness, and it’s probably safe to say that her demons finally got the better of her. Of course the irony of her most famous song, Rehab, is certainly not lost on anyone. I remember so clearly the first time that I heard the song. We were vacationing on the island of St. Lucia – where strangely, Winehouse herself eventually sought refuge. That song was and is staggeringly special – not in its message, of course – but musically. I’ve been listening to Back to Black all afternoon, and for whatever reason, Tears Dry On Their Own has been in especially heavy rotation. Rest in Peace, Amy. Amy Winehouse – Tears Dry On Their Own All I can ever be to you, is the darkness that we knew, and this regret I’ve got accustomed to. Once it was so right, when we were at our high, waiting for you in the hotel at night. I knew I hadn’t met my match, but every moment we could snatch. I don’t know why I got so attached. It’s my responsibility, and you don’t owe nothing to me, but to walk away I have no capacity. He walks away. The sun goes down. He takes the day but I’m grown. And in your way in this blue shade, my tears dry on their own. I don’t understand, why do I stress the man, when...

Minnie Mortimer Jul23

Minnie Mortimer

The Malibu home of fashion designer, Minnie Mortimer is the latest to be featured in Vogue’s APT with LSD – and just like the clothing that she designs, the interiors are young, eclectic, and quintessential California chic! Mortimer shares the house with her Academy Award winning screenwriter husband, Stephen Gaghan, and their young daughter, Tuesday. Enjoy the photos.
