Tweet I’ve discovered yet more photos from my 1983 school trip to Hailsham, England. Here’s a good before-and-after pairing. The photo on the left was taken before our departure. It looks like I’ve got on the same head-to-toe outfit I wore here: hot pink Izod shirt, pleated jeans and those appalling Capezio jazz shoes.  The […]

Tweet I went to a party last night and, as you might have guessed from yesterday’s post, I wore my vintage Zandra Rhodes dress/caftan. Hair-styling goddess Julie Matos of the Warren-Tricomi salon put a lot of thought into the right ‘do for my outfit. Zandra is famous for her bright pink hair … View image […]

Tweet E! Online has compared Lady Gaga’s latest hairstyle to Pippi Longstocking‘s braids. But when I saw E!’s tweet, I didn’t think Pippi at all. What I thought was, “Been there, seen that, got the t-shirt.” The braided lady on that t-shirt is gorgeous Wall Street Journal artist Noli Novak. When I worked at the […]

Tweet I do love those old-school Minnetonka moccasins from my last post, but what’s a moccasin lover to do when she’s invited to a black-tie soirée? Upgrade to mirrored Gucci moccasins, of course! These are my kind of crazy, but when it comes to online window shopping, I’m still more in love with the pink […]

Tweet I normally wear my hair as straight as I can get it, but I will wear it wavy/curly for a special occasion. I just came across this photo, taken on New Year’s Eve 2004. It would have been nice of my photographer, MrB, to tell me that one of the little satin loops sewn […]

Tweet Earlier this year, my hair guru Keith Carpenter tried to persuade me to go back to the kind of pixie style he gave me in the 1990s. I was like, “NAHHHH,” because I love my mullet. I’ve done variations on mullet-y hairstyles — short on top, long in the back — for years. This […]

Tweet I had a private event at the Plaza Hotel last Thursday in order to present my entire Maneater ring collection to press and retailers. The centerpiece of the display was supposed to be my new Pink Elephant and Tipsy Writer ring, but it was absent for a good reason — a photoshoot related to […]

Tweet I hope you’re all having a wonderful summer day, complete with everything I loved about summer in the 1980s: pool floats, snake-patterned bathing suits and teased-up hair. Well, maybe not the teased-up hair. That never went well with pools.

Tweet Last week, I asked my hair guru, Keith Carpenter, for a mullet-y haircut. As the Beastie Boys song “Mullet Head” goes, “Cut the sides, don’t touch the back!” I was inspired by Lady Gaga’s longtime friend and DJ Lady Starlight. I was hyp-mo-tized by Starlight’s hair at Gaga’s Roseland concert this spring. #482086591 / […]

Tweet The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala takes place tonight, but the event wasn’t always a spring thing — it used to be held in December. I went three times in the 1990s, when regular people could buy reasonably priced tickets for dessert and dancing after the celebrity dinner. I still have […]
