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.
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!).
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:
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?
