Valentino Rockstud Collection

When I read  that Bergdorfs  was displaying a sneak peek of Valentino’s Rockstud  Collection for two days only I had  to take the trip to  58th and 5th to check it out.  MA and I drooled  over the collection made exclusively  for Bergdorf Goodman including  bags, shoes and iPad cases (yes, iPad cases) that any girl would die for.

Do you share our love for the rockstud trend?

Top 3 Fashion Documentaries

With an extreme love for fashion, there’s nothing  better than a  revealing documentary  to  provide  an educational  sneak peek  inside the fashion world. Below are some of  the  must-see documentaries  for any fashionista,  showing that what may seem glamorous on the outside can actually be damaging on the inside.

1. Picture Me  –  follow model Sara Ziff  on her rise to  top model status and learn about the darker side of a models life.

2. The September Issue –  a rare  look at Vogue  and Anna Wintour along with creative director, Grace Coddington and much-loved editor-at-large Andre Leon Talley.

3. Valentino: The Last Emperor  – watch Valentino and his companion of over 50 years, Giancarlo  Giammetti,  unfold  his final couture show in Rome  (left me with goosebumps!).

Do you have any favorite fashion documentaries?

NYC Fashion: Rainageddon

So yesterday we had some weather in New York. Not the snowfall we’ve grown accustomed to over the past couple months, but cold, hard rain. The kind that comes down sideways. I actually enjoy rainy days when I can curl up in my apartment and not leave the couch, but on a work day the rain can be a huge inconvenience.

Even with the weather being dreary, you still need to look polished whether you’re running to an event or meeting a client for lunch. Here are a few of my favorite rainy day looks from seriously stylish chicas:

Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark on Broadway

I’ve always been a theatre buff so when my mom mentioned she wanted to see Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark  on Broadway last night, I was more than thrilled.  Poor reviews  of  the  $65 million musical (still in previews) had me wondering – could it really be that bad?

The production quality overall was surreal. The set, the costumes, the visual effects and of course, the aerial stunts over the audience set the bar high for future Broadway shows.  Plus  I had an extra bonus sitting  behind  me – a woman who  screamed every time  an actor  soared  overhead (hysterical!).

Unfortunately, the plot and newly added characters  only led to pure confusion and several “huh?”  and “why?” moments.  The music?  Let’s just hope the  recently hired  musical consultant  can work  wonders.

Between  several  injuries and delayed openings, Spider-Man has been called the most controversial Broadway musical and  one giant  PR disaster.  However,  I’ll be the first to admit that the only reason I really wanted to see it was because it has become such a spectacle. So is it a PR disaster, or has all of the controversy just led to  an eagerness  to  purchase tickets?

I’ll let you decide.
