Remembrances of Oscar

(0) Comments | Posted October 23, 2014 | 5:06 PM

Early on - say the 80's - there was that run on fashion phrase "Oscar-Ralph-Calvin-Bill." When Bill died in 2002 it became "Oscar-Ralph-Calin-Donna." This pretty much meant "EVERYONE" who was anyone in the monde of fashion. For the last 40 years in American fashion one could not write, talk, or...

So Teen Vogue Editor Elaine Welteroth trotted in to spiel about Back-to-School Saturdays, which are happening in Simon Malls nationwide.

Hot Summer Shows

(0) Comments | Posted July 29, 2014 | 12:38 PM

Chill from the summer heat and take refuge inside a theatre at two of my all time faves. Blue Man Group, an off-Broadway show, is super entertaining and wild. It's awesome for the entire family and the best part is that they pick people out of the audience to participate...

So cool to see Jessica Seinfeld and her new blonde "do" in our TV studios shooting a satellite media tour with us on Veggie Blend Ins.

Katie Couric did it. So did Zac Efron, Vanesssa Hudgens, Kristen Bell and Dakota Fanning. They worked their magic on camera in front of millions lending their name to Stand Up To Cancer PSA's.

Lavin's Spring 2011 Collection

(0) Comments | Posted October 5, 2010 | 1:20 PM

I think American fashion flocks love Lanvin because it's easy, modern and packs well. The best is the draping. Designer Alber Elbaz is one designer who sculpts with ample bodies in mind. He says he know what it is like to be heavy. Hear he is after his Spring 2011...

Tory, Tory, Tory...OMG, you're doing shoulder pads! I know you wanted to give us the '70s vibe your way and that you did. It turns out you're one of the few who have pulled off this shoulder look and made it modern. The '70s were all over with the peasant...

Michael Kors Mixes Luxury with Comfort (VIDEO)

(1) Comments | Posted September 21, 2010 | 10:22 AM

I miss Bill Blass, but sometimes I think he has been reincarnated as Michael Kors. Kors fuses high luxe and comfort as the all-American look. This means ideas of a classic tee in cashmere or the sumptuousness of a skirt of shrub green shredded taffeta - good for year-round just...

Ralph Lauren Goes Rodeo

(2) Comments | Posted September 20, 2010 | 1:14 PM

Ralph Lauren, the cowboy from the concrete canyons of Manhattan, manipulates the western theme of Indian motifs, mutton sleeves, cognac leathers, fringe and western belts into sophisticated looks that can trot down any Parisian arrondissement. He waters down his rodeo looks with a plain white shirt topping that cowgirl skirt...

Donna Karan Celebrates 25 Years

(2) Comments | Posted September 17, 2010 | 4:51 PM

Can you believe it was 25 years ago that Donna Karan left Anne Klein to strike out on her own? She revolutionized fashion by really tackling the body at a woman's most vulnerable... the breasts, the waist, the hips... She has always worked her magic to either disguise or accent...

So do you really think Anderson Cooper would stop by his friend Diane von Furstenberg's show if it was 3pm Tuesday afternoon?... not. Well, he pretty much always shows up now that she has been showing Sundays, joined by her husband Barry Diller, Sarah Jessica Parker and Rachael Bilson. But...

DKNY Spring 2011 Collection From New York City's Fashion Week

(0) Comments | Posted September 14, 2010 | 6:31 PM

Donna was one of the first to get that she had enough fashion in her to do two lines... one for the working woman (DKNY) with that kind of budget, and one who wants fashion at any price, high up on the corporate ladder or the benefit benefactor list to...

Fashion's Night Out Takeaway

(0) Comments | Posted September 13, 2010 | 2:36 PM

City streets became runways, stores became nightclubs and fashion fans became fashion party
animals. In case you could not or did not want to be there, here are some of the highlights my cameristas caught at the uptown scene.

The Sultaness of Samara

South Africa is holding its breath, waiting to find out if Sibella, one of the endangered cheetah species, is giving birth. She has good reason not to want any human close enough to discover if she is indeed pregnant or has merely eaten a very large kurdu.

Paris Fall Fashion 2010

(6) Comments | Posted July 23, 2010 | 11:22 AM

Last winter designers dared to dabble in fur, but this fall it is all out skin city. The looks filling those designer racks are fur filled. To my eye, it has always been Fendi, J. Mendel, Dennis Basso (in that order) who have been the masters of designer fur-craft. Fendi...

Fashion's Wake-Up Call: Goodbye Illusion, Hello Real World

(2) Comments | Posted February 22, 2010 | 1:43 PM

One more fashion week and we are all that much fashion wiser. Missing: the A-list celebs that designers usually dump thousands on to window-dress their runway shows. Throttled down: the glitz. And, thank god those eighties shoulder pads have been deflated. Love the boyfriend. Dianne Von Furstenberg is extracting "the...

Just the fountain of chocolate for marshmallow dipping, and free flowing champagne said it all. .

The look beneath the big top, the Fall 2010 Mercedes Benz Fashion Show in Bryant Park was certainly not bleak; but it was still a sea of black. The noir-do-wells turned out in studded...

The Big Paris Secret

Paris Fashion Week? Think of it as Project Runway on steroids. Which explains, perhaps, why it took me a few days to retrapper before writing about the experience.

Where to begin? Chanel built a barnyard for its fashion show, where his models were free to frolic in the hay. Alexander...

Warren and the Girls: A Fashion Week Prelude

(0) Comments | Posted September 16, 2009 | 7:34 PM

Okay, I admit it, I ducked out of the first 24 hours of fashion week to join a slightly different group of, let's say, upscale women, at the Fortune 500 Women's Conference. This illustrious group of CEOs, journalists, the Meg Whitmans of the world, NGO heads, and all-around wise women...
