I hope you will take the time this Wednesday, May 6, from 7-9 p.m. to join Moby, Shepard Fairey and yours truly in a panel helmed by our friend Brad Grossman, who’s taken the uber inquisitiveness that made him Brian Grazer’s right hand guide for so many years and in 2008 finally founded the Zeitguide, a multi-media platform that guides a wide swath of industry leaders through leading-edge issues in our constantly changing culture.

The best part of doing a feature on Carine Roitfeld? Her rapid-fire thank-you, which came with all the enthusiastic effervescence one expects from this spitfire in stilettos. The following story appeared in the Winter 2013-2014 issue of 7Hollywood Magazine, which featured no fewer than seven covers, including Karl Lagerfeld, Courtney Love, Laetitia Costa, Irina Shayk, Jared Leto, Dakota Fanning—and Carine, as seen as the start of the slide show.

Resistance appears to be futile. I’ve tried keeping at bay a wee longer the inevitable Elmo invasion that happens to every parent of a toddler.
It has not been easy. There was the gift of an Elmo-emblazoned sippy cup from the nanny. […]
Helen Gurley Brown died today at the ripe age of 90. While I didn’t always agree with everything that came out of her mouth or her mind—particularly in her later years where her judgement crossed the line at times—I appreciated her penchant for living her life her way, boldly, unapologetically and, clad in fishnets until the end of her days, with joie de vivre.

With cities increasingly brimming with wonderful boutiques, it’s always valuable to get an inside tip. I’ve long enjoyed RackedLA‘s “Shopping Confidential” column because of this.
When RackedLA contributor Yale Breslin contacted me with an invitation to submit my secret shopping spot, it was my pleasure to be able to share a place I’ve written about in LVER before and can never get tired of recommending, since I never grow tired of this designer’s wonderful work. […]
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. […]
It’s an expansion of sorts.
As you Dear LVER Reader know all too well from reading this site, Andy and I enjoy life to the max. With that in mind, we are expanding our offerings on the retail level by becoming one of the 150 “curators” on OpenSky, a curator-driven marketplace allowing users to select from a tightly selected group of experts in the fields of lifestyle, food, kids, beauty, health, home and other categories.[…]
This vid birthday card of sorts from my sister Blanca Apodaca and her other half Michael Serwich is a riot. It ran on the “Banana Splits” TV show in the 1960s, probably some time around the year I was born (that would be 1968). […]
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. […]
Friends at Harper’s Bazaar had their skates on this morning. On the heels of Michel Hazanavicius beating Martin Scorcese at last night’s Academy Awards for Best Director bragging rights for his equally praised “The Artist,” which took the ceremony’s top honor as Best Film of the year, the magazine unveiled just minutes ago a portfolio appearing in the April issue inspired by the film and created in collaboration with Michel.

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. […]
