Deeda Blair: Part Deux

02 . 22 . 21

I had a great response to my first Deeda Blair post about her elegance and New York apartment and I’m following it up with a look at her Georgetown home. She and her late husband William Blair purchased the 1930s red brick Georgian home in the late 1960s when Mr. Blair “was named the first […]

I wrote about philanthropist and art collector Jayne Wrightsman who died April 2019 at the age of 99 and her home at 820 Fifth Avenue last fall. Mrs. Wrightman was a scholar of 18th-century art and furniture and had an eye for the best pieces. Now many of her furnishings and art will be sold at Christie’s October […]

Daybreak

02 . 01 . 20

This is one of my favorite photos I’ve taken in Paris because it shows how you can wear sneakers with different outfits and at different ages and still look chic. When I first moved to New York, sneakers were not a thing you wore outside of the gym. It was all about freezing in bare […]

I love watching Wimbledon for the tennis and the fashion. There is a “smart casual” dress code at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club for spectators but those invited to sit in the Royal Box adhere to a strict dress code which includes “a demure dress for ladies and a jacket, tie and […]

The Golden Globes are tomorrow night and I have only seen one film up for awards. I haven’t seen Mary Poppins Returns and probably won’t watch it until it’s available to watch on demand but Emily Blunt looks beautiful in these photos from the January 2019 issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK. The dogs are pretty […]

I rarely even bother to look at street style photos anymore. I know they will be full of outlandish fashions meant to be photographed instead of women with their own personal style. That’s why I was excited to come across Claire Thomson-Jonville on Atelier Doré. Her perfectly insouciant look led me to believe that she […]

Sam Shepard’s Style

08 . 01 . 17

American playwright, author, screenwriter, actor, and director Sam Shepard passed away last week. He grew up in the Midwest but moved to New York in the 1960’s where he hung out with Patti Smith and Robert Maplethorpe and went on tour with Bob Dylan. He wrote 44 plays including Buried Child but most people probably […]

This awards season was probably the first time many Americans have heard of Isabelle Huppert. The 63 year old French actress made her debut in 1971 and has been nominated for awards since 1975. I was lucky enough to be invited to a press screening of her recent film Elle for which she earned all those […]

Fabulous Françoise

01 . 18 . 15

January 17th was French style icon Françoise Hardy’s 71st birthday.  I am embarrassed to say I didn’t realize the model, actress, and musician was still alive.  This is probably because all of the photos I’ve ever seen of her are from the 1960’s and she is painfully shy so she doesn’t make too many appearances.  It is […]

American Royalty

07 . 17 . 11

I was sad to learn that yesterday was the anniversary of the death of John F. Kennedy Jr., Carolyn Bessette Kennedy and her sister Lauren Bessette.  If America had a couple that could rival the obsession of William and Catherine, it was John and Carolyn.  Looking back at these photos, it’s clear that their style […]
