Kristin Kontrol, X Communicate

kristin kontrol albumkristin kontrol album

New track from Kristin Kontrol, of Dum Dum Girls, which I am digging this morning. It’s got a great 80’s synth-pop sound that gets me excited, and will do the same for you, especially if you are of a certain age and a fan of New Order, Depeche Mode, and all the rest and best of that era. Listen here.

Loewe Fall 2016

_ARC0185

Sometimes fashion gets on my nerves, I’ve always had a hard time drinking it’s Kool-Aid, even when I was an editor at Vogue. When it’s over the top in a silly way or inaccessible except for a few “avant garde elites,” it annoys me, though I’m a die hard Yohji, Rick, Hussein and CDG fan. This collection borders on both (cat necklaces? …really? …has someone spent a little too much time at their desk on YouTube and Instagram? And oversized pieces that barely look flattering on the models who are size double 0?) but the pieces themselves are actually cool on their own without the added touches, accessible and wearable, fun to layer for those of us who treat layering like a paintbrush to play with. The bags are crazy beautiful and the colors are right up my palette. Well done Jonathan Anderson. Lots of inspiration here for fall 2016. Continue reading

Dior vintage glasses

Awards season feels like the holidays all over again for the months of January and December. Not just because there are constant parties and pretty shoes and jewelry to try on but because you literally get bombarded with gifts (and not just the every day ones we are always grateful for anyway). Awards season brings out some of the best gift bags and funnest brands around. Although this season’s most distinctive bag was marred with a bit of controversy, the Madison & Mulholland 2016 Awards Season gift bag was simply filled with a lot of cool stuff. Vintage Dior sunglasses from Retrospecs? Check. Avion Tequila? Check. Jewelry, home wares, travel supplies, beauty products, and even one of the worlds finest chocolates, all in the bag. Check out all of the goodies the nominees and select guests will take home this weekend below. Continue reading

Stella Artois collaborated in a three-part partnership with the luxury limited-edition collectible, and have just released the Visionaire 65 FREE issue, which will be given away for free at a public art installation along with CAA.

LAURA_Prepon_SAG_2016_BW

So excited about the look Laura and I did for SAG awards! She wore one of the dresses we had originally pulled for Golden Globes and it was stunning. InStyle did a great piece on our fittings and my second annual road trip to the red carpet, through the apocalypse which was the nationwide weather back in December. Check out all the behind the scenes here and more photos below from the magical night, when Laura and the rest of the incredibly talented women she works with got the win for Best Ensemble cast! Such a beautiful and magical night all around. So proud of everyone and so excited for the next three season. Continue reading

I finally go to try the affordable magic of Base Color Bar, a new color only salon in Brentwood, founded by master hair colorist Haleh Lekkos. Haleh is going to do for color what Ali did for blow outs. Super fast and easy, with great prices for all services including touch ups and base color. I loved it, and the color was fantastic. Prices start at $45.

Golden Globes 2016

IMG_3388

Sunday night we went to my favorite party of the year, the Warner Bros Instyle Golden Globes after party, where as usual we danced for hours to the tunes Michelle Pesce was spinning, even some Bowie after we all heard that sad news late into the evening. Our lovely Laura Prepon booked a really cool new film,Girl On The Train, so had to miss the ceremony and after parties so she could be on set to start filming, which is really exciting! Yes, of course I was disappointed not to be able to dress her in some of the fabulous frocks I brought with me from New York and Paris, but as much as I love dresses I love the films more and we all do this because of the work and the films so it all works out exactly as it should. Below some more pics from the weekend including a sneak peak at some of the shoes I pulled for Laura. They are holy hotness gorgeous. Continue reading
