Here’s a political throwback: Anthony Weiner, the former New York Congressman and failed mayoral candidate who was brought down by sexting scandals. He’s the subject of the new documentary Weiner, by Elyse Steinberg and Josh Kriegman, who were given extensive access because they were there to shoot a political comeback. Instead, they were flies on […]

The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press had its annual awards dinner at the Pierre Hotel last night, and MrB and I were there. RCFP is different from the Committee to Protect Journalists, the nonprofit that MrB chaired for six years, though both are excellent organizations.  The Reporters Committee is focused on legal issues […]

I’m passionate about keeping clothes a long time … a trait that enables me to do fun collages like this. But what works with a vintage gown can get a little gross with frequently worn jeans. A few weeks ago, it occurred to me that my newest pair of jeans was five years old and […]

It’s easy to get a bad impression of Coachella fashion, especially after the media deluge of stories about how to dress for music festivals, followed by the stories on how music-festival fashion has gone too far. Style cliches abound on Instagram and then are beaten into the ground by style writers: the culturally inappropriate Native […]

Thanks to a friend’s last-minute invitation, I wound up at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame‘s 2016 induction ceremony at Barclays Center last Friday. It was an incredibly entertaining night in a batshit-crazy kind of way. First of all, an awards show where presenters and honorees can swear as much as they like and […]

This spring is the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death. (How did I forget Shakespeare’s wife was named Anne Hathaway? LOL.) To mark the event, the Royal Shakespeare Company has brought the playwright’s Great Cycle of Kings to the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Richard II, Henry IV Parts I & II, and Henry V are […]

I’d heard of singer Andra Day before, but I didn’t truly HEAR her until she performed with Ellie Goulding at the Grammy Awards last month. While she was still on the Grammy stage, I was checking for tour dates and I had my tickets for her March 25 show at Webster Hall by the time […]

I’ve been thinking about re-wearing my gold, one-sleeved, vintage dress since last November. I found the right occasion for it this month at the Catholic Charities Gala Benefit at the Waldorf Astoria hotel. What Wendy Wore Dress: From Allan & Suzi’s vintage/consignment store (2004) Shoes: Prada (2010) Clutch: Sequoia, from Galeries Lafayette (2011) Earrings: My […]

My designing friend Zang Toi showed his fall 2016 collection on February 13 and I’m just now getting around to writing about it! It was bitterly cold that night and I was thinking, “What could I possibly wear that will keep me warm?” Luckily I was able to squeeze myself into a sweater/dress combination from […]

If you heard a piercing scream when Spotlight won Best Picture at last night’s Oscars … that was me. I had practically given up hope because MrB kept saying, “Oh, The Revenant is going to win.” I was also jumping up and down over Mad Max‘s six awards (I thought it deserved Best Director too).  […]
