Not only does she have the voice of an angel, but to Mr. Ed, she is one, too. Click on Lea and sign petition.

“Imagine for a moment that you’re forced to do hard physical labor all day, seven days a week—whether it’s sweltering hot or freezing cold outside,” Lea Michele says. “At the end of the day, instead of relaxing or sleeping in a comfortable bed, you are locked in a tiny closet all night long.”… Read More »

“Like sands through the hourglass…so are the Days of Our Lives.” Truer words have ne’er been spoken and they also apply to the fashion industry. I mean…who doesn’t squeeze their sorry ass into a tight fitting pair of jeans, leggings or jeggings these days in the hopes of feeling as thin as the models that sashay down the runways. Maybe my comparison is a stretch (as in Spandex). Mercedes Benz Fashion Week kicks off today and someone, somewhere is squeezing into their DLs, throwing on their tight, fitted, cropped jacket with gobs of accessories, readying to make an entrance at… Read More »

While we were toiling around New York City, dashing uptown to Lincoln Center, then down to MAC & MILK, and of course to must-see shows like Alexander Wang at Pier 94 and Rodarte on West 22nd Street, something far more important in terms of fashion was happening in the world that completely went off of Anna Wintour‘s radar. Yes, of course, she is so busy between running a magazine, seeing all the shows of in-book advertisers, plus those that will one day, producing a TV show for CBS-TV on Fashion’s Night Out and producing Fashion’s Night Out, it is understandable… Read More »

Who isn’t excited about the new collaboration between Olivier Theyskens and Theory? Theory is the massively successful brand has never had a designer personality spearheading the label. The success behind Theory, is the theory that great clothes are always in style and that cut, fabric and clean lines will never just be a trend. Good staples are the core of the Theory look and every girl I know swears by the cut of their pants. Trend schmend. The company is a force to be reckoned with, and next up, the Theyskens Theory capsule collection (though I hate the term capsule,… Read More »

Fashion Celebrates Downtown

There is so much hub bub about Anna Wintour‘s planned “world’s largest fashion show” at Lincoln Center during Fashion’s Night Out in September. That bit, coupled with the fact that Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, having been booted from Bryant Park, will also be in the Lincoln Center area is giving me the willies. As a true downtown New Yorker, my heart skips a beat every time I go north of 24th Street. (It used to be 14th Street but I moved to 22nd Street and my friend lives on 24th, hence my new line in the sand.) When you think… Read More »

In today’s Women’s Wear Daily, the discussion is whether New York deserves a Men’s Fashion Week, similar to those in Milan and Paris. Listening to the argument, one has to side with the reality that New York needs one in order for these designers to compete with the international business cycle. Naturally I MEAN WHAT?!? has a different agenda, and are voting in favor of New York Manzie Week. Imagine how much fun we will have, especially with the next series of shows being Spring 11, when light frothy outfits come tra-la-la-ing down the runway on gossamer wings. (Note: Whoever… Read More »
