Given the day, I thought I’d share my “La Vie En Rose” column on Giorgio’s, the Saturday night fever at Mmhmm Bar at The Standard Hotel on Sunset.

The future of fashion is here. Well, almost. The first fully articulated 3D-printed piece of fashion is now a reality. This mind-boggling work by Michael Schmidt was brought to life on stage last night at the New York outpost Ace Hotel when Dita Von Teese was laced up within an inch of her life in this high-tech haute couture. […]
On the final hours of 2012, that annual tradition of reflecting on another year in life gets underway. As we have always done individually and together, Andy and I strove to do it to the hilt. […]
Today, action matters.
Even if you’re not in a “swing” state such as Ohio or Nevada or Colorado, it does matter that you get out and vote and show the rest of the country—the world—that there is, indeed, strength in numbers. […]
Yep, you can join us TONIGHT from 6-10 as we celebrate this thing called Fashion Night Out.
Oh wait, is Vogue going to charge me $250 for writing this phrase? […]
As the concrete dries on our new A+R location and we look forward to hanging our “open” sign later next month, reporters are getting hot and heavy about the revival along La Brea Avenue with the September issues in mind. […]
Today I’m 44. Tonight Andy and my dear pals Bryan Rabin and Kelly Cole are throwing down the glam gauntlet at Diamond Dogs, Bryan and Kelly’s weekly fest at Bardot’s in Hollywood. […]
For British director Sheree Folkson, this last week mark’s two milestones: leaving her flower-filled London flat for an extended Spring stay in Los Angeles—and the stateside theatrical debut of “The Decoy Bride,” the romantic comedy starring Kelly MacDonald (of “Boardwalk Empire” fame), David Tennant (famously known for his turn in “Dr. […]
Folks, I’ll be giving a talk on Hollywood and L.A. Style, the dawn of Rodeo Drive, indie boutiques and the indie beauty industry and the role Mr. Fred Hayman played in all of it tomorrow, Friday, March 9, from 11-noon at the downtown campus of Otis School College of Art and Design. […]
It’s a Valentine made in Hollywood, this evening’s installment of “Jane By Design” on the ABC Family network featuring yours truly in what will no doubt be a blink of a cameo on the new hit series. […]
The upshot? There was plenty of design, but only a select few pieces made the A+R cut. […]
Still foxy as ever at fifty, Darling.
CONGRATULATIONS to the talented Arianne Phillips for her Academy Award nomination in Costume Design for her beautiful work on W.E.!
This is Ari’s second Oscar nomination, and so well deserved. […]
By now, it should be no surprise, that if the inimitable Pink Martini is playing in Los Angeles or New York or even now Paris (more on that later), among the shifting ensemble of guest musicians and singers is one performer on the triangle who has become a near-regular: the equally inimitable Queen Bee of Pop (Counter) Culture and co-founder of Paper Magazine, Kim Hastreiter.

Every year, Pantone, that gatekeeper for any industry that relies on color, christens a new shade designated to reflect the aspirations of both the times and the trends. For 2012, that is a reddish-orange hue imbued with the real and imagined qualities of optimism, revival and energy and dubbed Tangerine Tango. […]
It's some work, some play. […]

Excene Cervenka, John Doe, DJ Bonebrake and Billy Zoom performed the album in its entirety tonight at a show I unfortunatley had to miss due to my book signing. […]
