Marc Jacobs today confirmed that his lower-priced Marc by Marc Jacobs line would be absorbed into the main Marc Jacobs brand. The move was first reported by WWD last week. My main interest in this stems from a Glamour story on the best looks of the Marc by Marc Jacobs line over the years. It […]

You never get over your first love. I don’t mean your middle-school crush or high-school boyfriend/girlfriend. Who cares about those people?! Damn, I can’t even remember any names.  The romantic feelings that last are your first music and fashion loves.  Even if you don’t listen to those bands or wear those styles any more, I […]

Madonna took a bad fall while performing “Living for Love” at the Brit Awards in London last night. Apparently, an Armani cape that was supposed to open when tugged by a dancer didn’t, so Madonna was yanked down several stairs by her neck.

This is certainly my week for international recognition! First, my Pink Elephant and Tipsy Writer Maneater ring was on the cover of Jewellery News Asia. Now, two of my designs are in K-Note, a Turkish magazine that goes to luxury car customers. Hopefully, those readers are luxury jewelry customers too. The pieces are part of […]

In honor of tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards, the always-highlarious Michael K of the blog Dlisted shared a classic clip from the 1995 VMAs, when Courtney Love threw a MAC compact at Madonna before crashing the latter’s pre-show interview with Kurt Loder. “Courtney Love is in dire need of attention right now,” Madonna observed. I […]

I meant to follow up a couple of days ago on my initial post about going to see Eminem and Rihanna perform at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium for their Monster Tour … but I was at a loss for words! My gorgeous friend Jen and I had too much fun in the second row where, […]

It’s Madonna’s 56th birthday today and in honor of the big event I did something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time — photograph as many of my Madonna tour t-shirts as I could find. Here is Henry the dog inspecting 14 concert shirts. The oldest shirt is from 1990, in the top […]

Ten years ago today, I was going to Madonna’s Re-Invention tour at Continental Arena in New Jersey. Continental Arena is now called the Izod Center. But, to me, it will always be the Brendan Byrne Arena, where I went to my first concert (Journey!) in 1982. I had already seen Madonna at Madison Square Garden […]
