While the melding of so many different personalities and styles is what makes a place like Club 57 magic, the work of Keith Haring, Steven Sprouse and Leigh Bowery made a lasting impression on me, and their work seems more relevant than ever today.
The days when beautiful women such as Isabella Rossellini and Lauren Hutton were fired from modeling roles for turning 40 are clearly gone. Go, Jessica!
New York Fashion Week appeared to start to settle down a bit, at least from where we sit across the continent. That is, until the Marc Jacobs show.
Our mothers were right - the right purse makes all the difference to an outfit, and there's never been a better time for a new statement. We all know ...
The line between fashion and art has always been fluid, with some of the world's most influential designers known for creating what can be described as wearable works of art. The connection between art and makeup is arguably even stronger.
We've seen the good, the bad, the ugly, the forgotten and mostly the unaffordable. What sticks and finds its way to stores is what the editors, buyers and trend setters deem worthy. I'm none of those three, but I've been thinking...about New York, where this all began...
Brandon Boyd is a big animal lover. He has a great French Bulldog, who casually lumbers up to greet this writer as I enter the Incubus singer's comfortably zen and groovy home in Los Angeles. And then, there's the cat.

In the 1840s, Benjamin Disraeli, still a long way from being prime minister, wanted to wake people up to the plight of the British working class.
