Golden Globes 2015

photo 1

This Sunday we went to the InStyle Warner Bros Golden Globes after party, which takes place right after the ceremony in the Beverly Hilton Hotel. It is truly an incredible event, and my favorite party of the year. Richard Linklater’s Boyhood took the Best Film award (of course) so once more I got to be in a room with some of the most talented creative people living and working today. There is a thrill I get from film that just inspires me endlessly. The InStyle bash is the most star studded, talented group of people there is so it was a fantastic night. Nikki Deloach wore another gorgeous dress, which I brought from NY for her (Road Trip To The Red Carpet!), by designer Christos Costarellos, and landed on her second Best Dressed list this week. She was listed as Best Dressed for PCAs as well, which was really fun. I also styled the young and talented Sosie Bacon for Sunday’s party, where she wore a Rubin Chapelle dress (see below, we paired it with a Whiting Davis clutch and Forevermark diamonds). More photos from our night below. Continue reading

Tasting Dinner, Obica

photo 3

Last night we went to a tasting dinner at Obicà Mozzarella Bar Pizza e Cucina, where we sampled really fantastic wines, paired with the restaurant’s fresh pastas and lamb, eggplant and mozzarella and amazing desserts (I splurged on carbs, sugar and fun all evening). The night was hosted and curated by Obica’s President and Sommelier Wine Director Raimondo Boggia, who was there to tell us about each wine in detail. The full menu and more photos below. They do these tastings on a regular basis, so highly recommended. Continue reading

Audi Celebrates Golden Globes

Audi photo booth

Still one of my favorite Golden Globes events, the party Audi throws at Cecconi’s to kick off the weekend was packed with familiar names and faces, from Sunday’s nominees to old friends. Michelle Pesce was in the DJ booth and by 10pm the dance floor started up in high gear as usual to Aloe Blacc and a g-rated version of Azealia Banks’ 212 track. Everyone from Naomi Watts, Live Schreiber, Christoph Waltz, Jessica Chastain, Edward Norton and Missi Pyle, came out for champagne, wine, and Cecconi’s amazing craft cocktails and well known pizza and sliders. I ran into a few old friends I hadn’t seen in ages, including Jessica Szohr, who is gorgeous and lovely as ever. One of my favorite actresses, who I photographed in NY a few years ago. More pics from the night below. Continue reading

Winter Road Trip Diary

IMG_9877

Road tripping has become my favorite hobby so instead of flying to LA for Awards Season I decided to drive cross country again, stopping in Nashville, Memphis, Oklahoma City, and Albuquerque on the way to fittings and Golden Globes events. My first stop was on the Upper East Side to pick up half a dozen Delphine Manivet dresses for Nikki Deloach that arrived from Paris for our fitting. From there I went to Baltimore for the holidays, and the morning after Christmas drove to Nashville, where I met a ton of great people, photographed the local stylish kids, and tried as much hometown food as I could. In Memphis I hit the Red Velvet Vintage shop as well as it’s sister store Crazy Beautiful (no relation to the film) and a couple of great used book stores and record stores in Cooper Young, as well as my new favorite road food at Central BBQ. I also managed to barely escape a Continue reading

Happy Holidays!

A_punk Christmas

We’re off to cook, bake, eat and drink, and shower our friends and family with gifts before hitting the highway for The Road Trip To The Red Carpet, my drive from NY to LA for Awards Season. I’m driving through Nashville, Memphis, and Houston for local street style, music, food and young designers, gathering dresses for the girls to wear on the red carpet, and of course lots of photographs. Check back here and on Instagram for updates from the road. Happy Holidays!

Sundance 2015, Ones To Watch

brooklyn

There is a Winona film screening at this year’s Sundance Film Festival in Park City this January. Thank God. It is criminal that she doesn’t have a film every year. The full list of films, including Ms. Ryder’s Experimenter, which I am very excited for, below. Ten Thousand Saints is high on my list of anticipation as well and the documentaries are really through the roof this year, though to be fair, they kind of always are but when you see the list it always seems even better than the year before. Above, a still from Brooklyn, directed by John Crowley, screenwriter Nick Hornby, based on the book by Colm Tóibín. The story: “1950s Ireland: Eilis must confront a terrible dilemma — a heartbreaking choice between two men and two countries, between duty and true love.” Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Domhnall Gleeson, Emory Cohen, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent. There are also a lot of cool shorts screening, including one from an old friend from Bard. Continue reading
