All of which will look amazing with this Rachel Pally maxi dress I am in love with.

Stephen Shore at 303 Gallery

Stephen shore show

Stephen Shore has a new show opening at 303 Gallery in September. I can’t ever get enough of his work, the original everything as far as color photography goes. Sometimes I wish I hadn’t dropped his photo class (three semesters in a row) while I was at Bard but being a film major was expensive enough without adding photo classes before the advent of digital. I still feel like I learned a lot from him. Incredible artist. The show opens September 11th through November 1st, 2014.

The Fifty Shades of Grey Trailer

Estella_MG_2596

Don’t even pretend. I know you want to see Fifty Shades of Grey on the big screen as much as I do, if just for the curiosity of how the casting chemistry plays out. I really like Dakota Johnson and was disappointed when Ben and Kate was cancelled last year. She’s sweet, funny and has a lot of charm onscreen. I can’t find any episodes of Ben and Kate on Hulu anymore and wonder if they took them down in anticipation of the release so we wouldn’t see her as the funny girl she is and take her more seriously as the innocent girl from Fifty Shades, which I’m sure she will play equally well. The film opens February 15, 2015. The trailer below. Continue reading

Royksopp & Robyn

One of the best collaborations of the year from two of my favorite artists. Royksopp and Robyn premiered their video for “Do It Again” today. The track is sublime and the video is intense and fantastic. Reminds me a little of Eve Sussman’s The Rape of the Sabine Women film she did in 2007.

Megan Hess has a gorgeous new book coming out in October from Rizzoli. The Dress: 100 Iconic Moments in Fashion is a beautiful sketchbook of some of fashion’s most stand out pieces from Dior, Chanel, Prada, Versace, and so much more.

She also does limited edition prints, stationary, scarves, and other accessories with her addictive drawings. Megan’s video and one of my favorite prints below. Continue reading

Things To Do With Lip Balm

Kiehls lip gloss

Years ago I started using Khiels beauty products daily for hair, skin and lips. One of my favorites is still the berry color lip balm and when room is limited in my bag or clutch this is the only thing I bring out with me because it’s the perfect touch up for lips, eyes and cheeks. Try dabbing a little on your eye lids for a sexy shimmer, your cheeks for a healthy glow and your lips for subtle shine.

Day Look, Working

My new beauty obsession is this gently effective Fresh Black Tea age delay lotion, which fits perfectly in my day bag and can be reapplied throughout the summer days, when skin feels like it needs special lovin’ in the sun. It’s got black tea and lychee seed and blackberry leaf extract for a light texture that layers well with my other products. Clockwise above a day look for the office: Halston cotton and silk-blend dress, See by Chloe leather bag, and Nicholas Kirkwood striped leather pumps.
