Met Loves Models



The Metropolitan Museum of Art  held an amazing lunch to tribute the models of Versailles in 1973. That fashion show featured american designers like Stephen Burrows and Oscar de la Renta who showed the worlds stage what “cool” looked like. No backdrop, no models holding cards with numbers on them, just Liza Minelli singing, pregnant Donna Karan dressing models, and clothes which were supposed to be made for inches and made in European cm. Still with all the backstage chaos one word comes from that show, cool. Even Hubert de Givenchy  recognized that americans are cool. Simple, straightforward dressing, beautiful african american models, short cropped hair, and tons of attitude.  It gave me goose bumps to hear the anecdotes at the Met in the Temple of Dandor.  This moment struck me as so amazing that I wrote a book all about it called American Style.

My Golden Globe 2011 Winners In Fashion – Green Is The New Gold

From Angelina Jolie to Catherine Zeta Jones and Mila Kunis, green is in. I mean really in. I thought gold and seventies were the fever for Spring, but the Golden Globes took the forecast out of Spring and made it green.

Watch What Happens



Are you ready, I mean really ready? As of February 15, 2011, The Real Housewives Of New York are going to be on Bravo, Tuesdays at 10pm. NBC invited all the talents to Los Angeles for the TCA’s (Television Critic Association). I got to meet SNL’s Amy Poehler, hang with Tori Spelling, talk burgers with celeb chef Bobby Flay, reminisce about Australia with Brian Curtis, and hang with The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. For all you fashion insiders who wanna know, I wore BCBG white eyelet dress to press interview, with a colorful Victoria Secret bra. And for the red carpet, I went with a  little black  Dolce & Gabbana dress, and added two of my bracelets from my new collection to give it more of a New York edge.

Are you ready for some HOUSEWIVES????

Excercise is Great..Period

Us Weekly invited me to host a spin class at Soulcycle in Tribeca of New York City. I love the kinetic energy from spinning vs the frenetic energy of New York City. Who knew how awesome the instructor and music would be. I got a killer workout that effected my whole body. January is get fit month. My only advise to even myself is…. MOVE. Soul Cycle is awesome spinning( I’m officially a spinerina) and good food for the soul and body. Feel good, get fit!
