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. […]

Friendship is a gift. There were gifts aplenty Sunday night in honor of Bryan Rabin, whose latest milestone is a reminder to all of us how long we’ve been connected and, in most cases, due to the many good times orchestrated by the thin, white duke himself. […]
Great art does not happen in a vacuum. There is always some thing, some one—especially some one—who played a role and, very likely, one that is more collaborative than even the credited genius might admit. […]
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. […]
My pals at Paul Smith just shared this sketch of the three-piece suit the Brit fashion house tailor made for best actor nominee Gary Oldman’s big moment today at the Academy Awards. […]
Life is good for Gary Oldman. As he charms his way through interviews and parties in L.A. this week in the run up to hearing his name announced in the best actor category at this Sunday’s 84th Academy Awards, he also marked the opening of his collaborative photography exhibition with lensman Jack English Thursday night at the Paul Smith flagship on Melrose Avenue.

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. […]
With Andy spending his last night faraway in Paris after a freezing weekend navigating Maison et Objet, I thought of the upcoming release by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Frederick Wiseman on that marvelous Parisienne institution, the Crazy Horse. […]
If the best job in the world is one where it doesn't feel at all like work, then being able to glam it up and cohost a party with truly fabulous pals such as Tracee Ellis Ross, Hutton Wilkinson and Nina Clemente (as we're all pictured above) was a great gig, indeed. […]
Just got off the phone with the charming Hutton Wilkinson, the keeper of the flame of the most fabulous Tony Duquette estate, busy as ever it seems and these days because of the collaboration between Tony Duquette Inc. […]
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. […]
