Rene Russo’s wardrobe in The Thomas Crown Affair used to be my favorite movie wardrobe inspiration but that was before I fell in love with everything that Jennifer Aniston wears in each episode of The Morning Show. It actually reminds me of what I used to wear in the corporate world when I moved to […]

Have you ever dreamed of living the luxurious life of Valentino and his business partner and friend Giancarlo Giammetti? Well, now you can since they are selling their lavish summer home, Villa La Vagnola, in Tuscany for €12 million or $13,297,872 USD. The duo bought the property in 1986 and previously listed for sale in […]

I have about a 1,000 photos from Charleston to edit and a travel guide to create but until they are ready, I leave you with Easter weekend images from Chateau de Wideville in France. The chateau is owned by Valentino and these photos are from his friends Carlos Souza and Giancarlo Giammetti. While Charleston already […]

I normally wouldn’t write about historic homes back to back but this one was too good not to post. Today is Valentino’s best friend and business partner Giancarlo Giammetti’s birthday. Over the weekend he celebrated with a very chic crowd of friends at the Palacio dos Marqueses de Fronteira in Lisbon, Portugal. The privately owned home […]

The Chicest Chateau

07 . 08 . 17

Visiting Coco Chanel’s apartment was a bucket list item that actually came true. Perhaps if I wish hard enough, I may find myself at Chateau de Wideville someday. Not exactly sure under what circumstances that might happen but a girl can dream. Chateau de Wideville is the 17th-century home in France owned by Valentino who […]

Wonderful Wideville

04 . 10 . 16

My favorite Instagram accounts to follow are Valentino, Giancarlo Giammetti, and Carlos Souza, especially when they post from Chateau de Wideville, Valentino’s home in France. The gardens are some of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. Taking a walk through them seems like the perfect thing to do on a Sunday but even just looking at the […]

Wunderbar

After three days of 90 degree temperatures, I’m even more ready for fall. I can’t wait for cozy coats and sweaters and trips to European cities like Vienna. The Austrian city is where Bergdorf Goodman Pre-Fall 2015 Magazine photographed these very chic fashions including the Andrew Gn coat above. I’ve never been to Austria but I’m […]

Saturday Disco Fever

04 . 11 . 15

It’s finally warmed up in New York which means it’s time to pull out some colorful spring clothes. As inspiration, I’m loving this outfit that Pippa Vosper wore to an event at Harrod’s in London last week. The rainbow Valentino Sandals are perfectly complemented by her Essie Saturday Disco Fever pedicure polish. Such a perfect name […]

The annual highly anticipated Net-a-Porter Sale is now up to 70% off. There are still many amazing pieces still available so I thought it would be fun to create a few outfits to highlight a few of my favorites. The first outfit is a day look for a not so cold climate or one you […]

“I have to tell you, I am in love with beauty. I have always loved beautiful objects.” This is the opening of Valentino’s new book Valentino: At the Emperor’s Table from Assouline. It perfectly sets the tone for the gorgeous photographs of the dining tables and spaces at his many homes. If you’ve ever seen the documentary, […]

I was very excited to see on photographer Oberto Gili‘s Instagram today that he took the photos for the upcoming book, Valentino: At the Emperor’s Table, that also includes Andre Leon Talley as author.  If you’ve seen the Valentino documentary Valentino: The Last Emperor, you know that Valentino is a consummate host and party planner, or at […]

It has been pouring in Paris all day so I was happy to stay in my dry apartment and watch the Maison Valentino Haute Couture runway show via live feed.  The pre-show video feed was priceless but the actual show itself was heavenly.  I wish it had been ready to wear Valentino where there is […]

I’ve posted about Vaunte before and I’m excited to announce that now you can shop my closet on the site. The team and I spent a fun afternoon going through my barely worn designer items and photographing me in my apartment.  Below are just a few examples of the pieces we pulled out for the […]

Chic in Gstaad

12 . 30 . 13

If you’ve been checking out Instagram this week, you’ll notice that everyone is either relaxing on the beach or skiing on the slopes.  Talk about “fear of missing out.” And because everyone is off enjoying themselves somewhere, it’s clear that many less of you are reading blogs.  Due to this fact, I’ve decided to save […]

I usually like to wait until after Thanksgiving to start posting about Christmas but since it’s starting to look pretty festive around town, I figured what the heck.  Last week, Bunny Williams invited me to Treillage for lunch where the entire place was already decked out for the holidays.  I found out that I had […]

You would expect the apartment of the public relations guru to Valentino to be glamorous and you would be right. Brazilian born Carlos Souza lives in an unlikely neighborhood but the apartment itself is a jewel box filled with his travel treasures and eclectic art collection.  Refinery29 paid a visit recently and I’m loving the gallery […]

I considered boycotting the August 2010 issue of Vanity Fair since Angelina Jolie was on the cover. (I am on Team Aniston mainly because of her hair.) I’m glad that though I didn’t because it was chock full of great design stories including Bunny Mellon’s Secret Garden, Architecture in the Age of Gehry, and my […]
