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).  […]

MrB and I held our New Year’s Eve dinner for friends at Narcissa, the restaurant at the Standard Hotel in the East Village. As planned, I wore a new-to-me, secondhand dress that I got because of its Klaus Nomi-esque shoulder pads and V-shaped sheer panel in the front. What Wendy Wore Dress: Brian Lichtenberg (purchased […]

Tonight, the fine folks of Platinum Guild International had a little soirée for designers and press at Parlor. I had designs from my Punk Platinum collection on display. I also brought my one-of-a-kind Luna ring, which is set with 1.90 carats of diamonds and a South Sea pearl. Who knew it would look so good […]

I’ve got a 1980s Bain de Soleil ad jingle stuck in my head: “Bain de Soleil, for the Saint Tropez tan …” St. Tropez was the third and final stop on our recent trip to Europe. Our friend Scott was having his 50th-birthday party at the beautiful chateau where we’d celebrated his wedding in 2008. […]

My hair guru Keith Carpenter and his partner Olivier had a dinner party on Saturday at their beautiful apartment in Brooklyn. I dressed in the same Zang Toi jacket/faux-garter tights combo that I wore to see Cabaret in January and to Zang’s Fall 2014 runway show.  What can I say? I like this outfit! What […]

I’m quite proud of this photo I took at the Weinstein Company’s Oscar viewing party. I was just trying to get a picture of MrB’s pearl cufflinks, but I managed to get a mini outfit photo. There you can see MrB’s Armani tux; Pucci bow tie; the Cartier watch I gave him for our wedding […]

I’m in Los Angeles, thrilled to be away from the 1 degree winter weather at home in New York. Last night, we went to a super-fun Oscar viewing party hosted by movie producer Harvey Weinstein, followed by the Vanity Fair after-party. There’s been a couple of times when I’ve worn a dress to the black-tie […]

On Dec. 31, 1994 — 20 years ago today! — I rang in the new year with my gorgeous sister and friends at the re-opened Studio 54. I have never been a big fan of crop tops, but I made an exception for a cropped, silver twinset by Cynthia Rowley. I might have gotten it […]
