Tweet It’s good to know that People Magazine is capable of recognizing when it’s done something wrong.  Last night, during Scandal‘s premiere, the magazine tweeted (and quickly deleted): As the blog Jezebel later asked, “Because you can’t mean serious business with natural hair?” People didn’t acknowledge the deletion at the time, but simply went from […]

Tweet I was managing editor of People Magazine’s website in 1999, and I’ve subscribed to the magazine ever since I left that job. Today, I was flipping through the Sept. 15, 2014, issue and came across an item about the recent celebrity nude-photo hacking.

Tweet Gorgeous singer/songerwriter Skylar Grey is wearing the double-ax necklace I made for her on the cover of an upcoming issue of Inked Magazine! Notice that Skylar now has a double-ax neck tattoo as well? The axes were part of the logo for her 2013 Don’t Look Down album, hence the design’s importance to her. […]

Tweet A big thanks to Inside Weddings magazine for including my Marie Antoinette earrings in the Spring 2014 feature on purple gemstones. Remember, this is the year of Radiant Orchid! The story says: “Top off spring bridal styles with luxurious violet-hued jewels and gemstones.” I think that’s a great idea. Color livens up a traditional […]

Tweet Cancel your subscription to me if you want, but I think putting Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on the April cover of Vogue is the most interesting move the magazine has made in a long time. This is a much more newsworthy choice than, say, an actress who is shilling her next movie. (Did […]
