Al Selvin knew a great city, train line, bike path, restaurant and musician when he saw it. I hope we will continue to make L.A. a city worthy of his blessed memory.

Looking back at the 1940s in Beverly Hills, it seems extraordinary now. Everyone seemed to know movie stars, they were not such a big deal. June Haver was in my class, and I helped her put on makeup in our high school bathroom the day she landed a contract with Fox Studios.

It is interesting that while living in Paris, my parents resisted any French influence and continued their Russian way of life: eating Russian food, reading Russian newspapers and books, having Russian friends, and speaking Russian at home.

In 1940, Beverly Hills was not really developed yet; we bought a four-bedroom house for the seven of us. Sarah was attending Berkeley and slept on a couch on the weekends she was home. I was in the eighth grade and my brother in the second. Life in Beverly Hills was bewildering.

Disturbing, melancholy, troubled, maddening, intimate. These are a few words that come to mind when one comes across a painting by Alexander Yulish. His work has been compared to Picasso, Pollock, and a hint of Francis Bacon.

The Iran deal will stand, at least until the next presidential election. Despite disapproval by a non-partisan majority of both houses of Congress, not to mention the American people, because of the incredibly low threshold to sustain a veto, not to mention White House arm-twisting and purely partisan support, the deal will stand.

As a designer, slash, travel blogger, I like to think that I have my finger on the pulse of, well, design and travel. Imagine my delight when I discovered that I would be in Los Angeles just when the ultra-cool French hotel brand, Mama Shelter, would be opening their first United States outpost.

Forget Elosie at The Plaza, or Carrie Bradshaw at Le Plaza Athenee in Paris, France. I always feel like a princess at my number one hotel in the world, The Beverly Hills Hotel, or Hotel California, nicknamed by The Eagles as the title of their record album of the same name.

My dad loved to play the guitar in his heavily wooded paneled study where he also smoked his fine cigars. Maybe that was the Iberian in him, and I got a bit of it too, by osmosis if not genetics.
