I like to catch Ringo Starr‘s show whenever he’s in town, so I got tickets for his October 31 concert at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn. I figured I’d dress the part of a Beatles fan in the “Mod girl” outfit I’d worn once before for Halloween. It wasn’t until last week that I realized I’d […]

Last Thursday, MrB and I went to a dinner in honor of George Wein’s 90th birthday. George produced the first Newport Jazz Festival in 1954, and the celebration at City Winery doubled as a fundraiser for the nonprofit Newport Festivals Foundation. There were amazing musical performances throughout the evening. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a program […]

MrB and I went to the Broadway production of hot-hot-hot musical Hamilton tonight. Despite the uniformly rave reviews for Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hip-hop interpretation of Ron Chernow’s 2005 biography of Alexander Hamilton, I was dreading the evening a little. I was originally supposed to see Hamilton on March 26, when it was downtown at the Public […]

People say that every boxing movie has the same plot and maybe that’s true (except for Million Dollar Baby, because the hero normally doesn’t get killed by adrenaline injection), but it doesn’t mean a movie can’t excel within that range. I was blown away by the Southpaw premiere last night, as was everyone around me […]

I got my Independence Day look on one day early, for last night’s outing to the rooftop lounge at Ink48. I highly recommend the view there. I wore my Castelbajac sailor outfit, which I like to get out on or around July 4. I mean, when else can you wear something like this? What Wendy […]

If you read this post about what I wore for New Year’s Eve in 1994 and 2004, you must have figured out that I was going to wear the red Versace dress from 2004 again. I can’t resist a 10-year fashion anniversary. What Wendy Wore for New Year’s Eve Dress: Versace (2004) Shoes: Prada (pre-2005) […]

I’ve been loving the ear jewelry that’s emerged in the past year. There are so many options! But the trend that’s (thankfully) replaced the statement necklace started, as many trends do, quite slowly. Miley Cyrus flaunted her ear cuffs in 2012, when she cut her hair short. But Miley’s style is risky — her short […]

Happy birthday to my almost-husband, Paul McCartney! He turns the big SEVEN-TWO today. When I was 13, I desperately wanted to marry Paul, who was inconveniently married to Linda at the time. I subdued my jealousy by telling myself that it would never work out between us, even if he got divorced (and divorce was […]

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m the chairman of the board of alumni trustees of the Columbia Daily Spectator, Columbia University’s student newspaper. Every February, the Spectator has a big awards dinner. We always have high-profile keynote speakers. Recent ones have included Arianna Huffington (Joan Didion presented an award at that dinner as well); Julius Genachowski, […]

MrB gave a speech about ethics in journalism on Sunday night. He was addressing the alumni of an interesting program called Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics. The FASPE website says: “The Fellowships provide journalism, law, medical, and seminary students a structured program of study that initially focuses on the role of […]
