Fashion at the Sundance Film Festival

Every year, towards the end of January, independent Hollywood filmmakers take over the small town of Park City, Utah, for the Sundance film festival. And while most are not there to ski, I find it is the perfect time to take to the beautiful slopes of the Canyon resort, as they are so quiet during [...]

Chanel Ski

It was February 2006 when Victoria Beckham took to the slopes of the Baqueria ski resort in Spain, sporting head to toe Chanel skiwear. Haters criticized the fashion queen for looking so shamelessly branded, while others clamored to get their own Chanel ski wardrobe, complete with a pair of Chanel ski poles and matching skis. [...]

Reflections of New York Fashion Week

As I flew home from New York, I reflected upon the runway shows I had seen last week. Donna Karan’s Valentines Day show was the perfect winter/fall collection. Old Hollywood Glamour meets La Dolce Vita. Stunning use of texture, including fur. Hourglass silhouettes, accessorized with pearls. Her pieces were elegant, sensual and sophisticated. This was [...]

New York Fashion Week February 2011

Over the next few days, the majority of the American fashion industry will be getting ready for New York Fashion Week. A publicist originally hosted the now-infamous fashion extravaganza in 1943 at the Plaza hotel. She named it named Press Week and back then, it was only open to fashion editors and journalists. At that [...]

Reflections on the Golden Globes

It has been a week since the Golden Globes and I can’t help but wonder whether there are any wardrobe regrets amongst Sunday’s winners. In my experience, every awards show serves as a lesson in fashion. I often find the most challenging stage of choosing a special outfit, is deciding upon a purse. I love [...]

Golden Globe Gowns

The 68th Annual Golden Globes was one of the most enjoyable awards ceremonies that I have ever had the pleasure of attending. For the most part, I accredit that to host Ricky Gervais.

Awards Season Menswear

I once attended an awards ceremony and was photographed more than my male companion. He later mused that he believed it was because “women get to wear stunning gowns, while men are restricted by the standard tuxedo, so women are bound to be photographed more.” After soothing his bruised ego, I began to consider whether [...]
