Another Hollywood awards show has come and gone without a good candidate for my coveted Best Dressed/Wear What You Want combo award. Like the Critics’ Choice Awards earlier in the month, Saturday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards had a lot of attractive red-carpet looks, but none that gave me that special “so wrong it’s right” feeling. […]

Glamorous show-business events are great for spotting ultra-high-end jewelry, like the 200 carats of Harry Winston diamonds recently worn by Jennifer Lopez at the Golden Globes. But I swear that the place to see the most exciting fine jewelry is at Jewelers of America’s GEM Awards — “the Academy Awards of the fine jewelry industry” […]

There were lots of pretty looks at tonight’s Critics’ Choice Awards in Santa Monica, Calif. I kept thinking, “I’d wear that,” as I looked at the fashions. For instance, the striped Tracy Reese dress worn by Constance Zimmer of UnREAL is definitely one I’d gravitate to in a store. Embed from Getty Images But nothing […]

I was browsing 1980s vintage while watching the Golden Globes red carpet, and I had to point out this ruffled Pierre Cardin design to my designing friend Stacy Lomman. Stacy is the one who looked through my closet once and said, “Wow! Even your ruffles have ruffles!” I said, “Do you think this has enough […]

Television folks don’t do a red carpet the way the music industry does. After all the eye candy at the MTV Video Music Awards last month, the Emmys were a big letdown. I’m going to give my coveted Best Dressed/Wear What You Want combo award to Scandal‘s Kerry Washington, though her phresh out the runway, […]

MrB and I went last night’s Gerald Loeb Awards, which, as the Loebs website explains, “honor excellence in business and financial journalism that both informs and protects the private investor and the general public.” I wrote about the Loeb Awards in 2010 when my gorgeous friend Alix Freedman — formerly of the Wall Street Journal, […]

Damn! Where was Moonstruck-era Cher when I needed her on Oscar night? For that matter, where was Rihanna? Bad Gal RiRi’s puffy, pink Giambattista Valli gown made a huge impression at the Grammys earlier this month, but it would have been the obvious winner of my coveted Best Dressed/Wear What You Want combo award on […]

Earlier this month, I was in Arizona for the big Tucson Gem & Mineral Show. The temperature in New York fell to about 5 degrees that week, so I was delighted to be in warmer cactus country. I have excellent gem dealers in New York City, but it can still be tough to find very […]
