Film Frenzy

01 . 10 . 16

Awards Season starts in full force tonight with the Golden Globes. I’ve seen a few of the films and performances nominated which makes me more excited to see who wins. I saw Brooklyn yesterday with Saoirse Ronan and absolutely loved the sweet coming of age immigrant story set in Brooklyn and Ireland. Joy is a bit […]

If anyone needs me tonight, I’ll be at the movie theater with my friends to see The Grand Budapest Hotel. Written and directed by the amazing Wes Anderson, with a little help from artist Hugo Guinness, the “complex caper” film is jam packed with celebrities and the fanciful world we’ve come to expect from Wes. […]

Wes’s World

02 . 26 . 14

Just giving you an early heads up that Wes Anderson is profiled in the WSJ magazine that will be available in The Wall Street Journal newspaper on Saturday, March 8, 2014.  His highly anticipated new movie The Grand Budapest Hotel will also be released the day before on March 7th.  I sat next to its star […]

When I saw the trailer for The Two Faces of January, I thought it reminded me of the film Talented Mr Ripley. Then I saw the movie poster which confirmed that the firm is based on the 1964 book The Two Faces of Januaryby Patricia Highsmith, the author of The Talented Mr. Ripley. The Two Faces […]

Today has been insanely busy.  While I try to organize myself and edit photos for a post, I leave you with the trailer for the new Wes Anderson film The Grand Budapest Hotel.  The all star cast led by Ralph Fiennes and quirky story line set in the 1920’s already has me hooked. Unfortunately, it […]

A Parisian Love Affair

09 . 05 . 13

It’s the first official day of New York Fashion Week but I have Paris on the brain.  On NOWNESS today is Escapade: A Parisian Love Affair, “an enchanting new love story inspired by the Parisian luxury design house Pierre Frey.” I love create people and companies that can’t be confined to just one medium and this film is a perfect complement […]

On the Road

09 . 25 . 12

I loved this spread Lost Highway the minute I saw it in the October 2012 issue of Vogue.  It features model Kati Nescher and Garrett Hedlund who stars as Dean Moriarty in the upcoming film On the Road due out in December.  It reminds me of my dad’s road trip photos from the late 1960’s […]

Beautiful Backdrop

09 . 15 . 12

The Beatrice Inn was a favorite with the fashion flock until it closed in 2009.  Vanity Fair editor in chief Graydon Carter recently resurrected the restaurant just in time for Calvin Klein to host a chic party during fashion week. I actually pulled together photos to post of the new space since I love the […]

The Radiant Child

07 . 12 . 10

It’s both sad and amazing that the artist Jean-Michel Basquiat was only 27 when he died of a heroin overdose in 1988. He truly was a talented yet tortured artist who has left us with a beautiful legacy of paintings. His friend Tamra Davis interviewed him in 1986 but the footage remained unseen until now. […]

Coco and Igor

06 . 08 . 10

The little straw boaters in the Resort shows of Jason Wu and Oscar de la Renta reminded me of Coco Chanel which then reminded me that there is another film coming out about the iconic designer. Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky is based on the book Coco & Igor by Chris Greenhalgh who also wrote […]

Even though the film won’t be released until May 28th, the Sex and the City 2 hoopla has already begun. While the fashions will probably steal all the scenes, I am interested in the sets, specifically Carrie and Big’s apartment. While there are some views in the trailer, I was able to find a few […]

I didn’t realize until recently that the film An Education was actually based on a piece of the same name that appeared in Granta magazine in 2003. That led to a longer memoir by Lynn Barber that picks up where the film leaves off. I am in the middle of reading An Education now and […]

A Single Man Sofa

12 . 16 . 09

I had a reader email me a few days ago after seeing Tom Ford’s new movie A Single Man asking if I knew where to find the sofa seen in the film. I hadn’t even had a chance to try to find out before the answer came to me! (I love when I don’t have […]

Designing Woman

10 . 28 . 09

When I was at the Stars of Design dinner recently, I not only sat next to Mario Buatta but also interior designer Geoffrey Bradfield. I had never met him before and found him to be utterly charming and full of life. He mentioned that he just attended a screening of the 1957 film Designing Woman […]

Fashionable Films

03 . 28 . 08

My post about the new movie Flawless brought up a great conversation about other films with fabulous fashions, some that are classics and some that might be considered cult classics. Here is a partial list of my favorite fashionable films, the first being Breakfast at Tiffany’s of course. But while everyone loves the little black […]
