As an ex-fatty, I have mixed feelings about the recent hubbub surrounding the new fat covergirls of Sports Illustrated. I get it, but maybe they could have worn a one piece bathing suit for that cover shoot. … Read More »

Tom Ford Tux for Spring '14.

Two years ago, the tuxedo started going through a metamorphosis. Solid black was sooo over whereas florals and vibrant colors were becoming the new black in men’s evening wear. Guess who they were inspired by? Moi! For Spring 2014, Tom Ford continues serving up untraditional, elegant formal attire such as this lovely floral printed tux (above). Below is my blog post from August 19, 2011 that references this chic, new look that also, when you scroll down will see that I started this whole trend eons ago…at my Bar Mitzvah. This is simply unfair. Two of the world’s most acclaimed… Read More »


The war of the fashion glossies is on. And although Anna Wintour is sure to act like it is business as usual, I am sure the back room arm twisting for advertisers and editorial is about to get really sick. Poor… Read More »

The LeSportsac pedicabs were the best way to get around town on Fashion’s Night Out.

After seeing how enthusiastic and motivated consumers are that come out in droves to suck down all the free booze and “shop”–using the term loosely here–there is so much more to do altruistically speaking. All this good-will can be harnessed and the giving aspect of this event can be multiplied exponentially. … Read More »

Yes, you are reading that correctly.

Who is more stunning than Kate Moss? Vogue will hit their September issue out of the park with the cover to end all covers shot by Mario Testino. Do you remember in the documentary, The September Issue, with all the fuss about Sienna Miller being featured on the cover? What was that? He hair was styled like a tomato. And what has she done since then? There is no comparison to when a fashion magazine cover features a supermodel rather than an actress-ish. Excuse me, I saw The Help and Emma Stone is cute, but you can all relax. There’s… Read More »

Will you become a Valli Girl?

Let me be the first, well, perhaps the second person to congratulate Macy’s for doing a fashion-focused series of collaborations to generate heat and foot traffic. The newest collab is with Giambattista Valli for Impulse. All I can say is that creating fashion designer collaborations sure beats the celebrity-turned-designer nonsense from seasons past. Sure, Jessica Simpson is a billion dollar brand, but there will always be exceptions to every rule. With the demise of the Sarah Jessica Parker for Halston hullabaloo, maybe the fashion industry can rejoice and enjoy fashion designers again. And while I am at it, perhaps with… Read More »

Mario Testino captured the essence of Kate Moss in this cover of Vogue Brazil, where they are not afraid to be risque. Unlike here, with the horrendous image of Reese Witherspoon and her pursed lips on the current cover of American Vogue. Anyway, in this age of major airbrushing, I wanted to point out that this image of Kate is so airbrushed that it looks like an illustration, where the artist actually used the airbrushing technique. Look, I am not judging anyone here, if I were to be on the cover of anything, the Yaba Daba Doo Gazette, I would… Read More »

Kobe Bryant did the unthinkable. In a moment of heated passion and utter annoyance at a play on a basketball court, he spewed the two words that no homosexual likes to hear. This quickly became GLAAD’s call to arms, rainbow flag in hand, crying (with tears) foul. There was a time that simply the F-word was taboo extraordinaire on the courts with penalties mounting as the inner city kids were taking over the sport. This recent Kobe-Gate multiplies the drama times two because when he screamed F**cking Fa**ot, he was not just whistling Dixie. It was a double entendre and… Read More »

All I can say is that the new Vogue Paris cover featuring model, Giselle Bundchen, is the best news. They tend to anyway, but with Emmanuelle Alt at the helm of the pub since the abrupt resignation from Carine Roitfeld, I am glad that some things don’t change. The worst part of most American fashion magazine are their covers. Excuse me, Jennifer Hudson is a lovely girl and Jennifer Aniston is best served on the small screen, but please, leave most Jennifers off the covers of Vogue and that includes Jennifer Garner, who I think is stunning. What can I… Read More »
