Tweet The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala takes place tonight, but the event wasn’t always a spring thing — it used to be held in December. I went three times in the 1990s, when regular people could buy reasonably priced tickets for dessert and dancing after the celebrity dinner. I still have […]

Tweet The Philadelphia Museum of Art celebrated its Patrick Kelly “Runway of Love” exhibit with an opening night party on Saturday. MrB, gorgeous designing friend Stacy Lomman and I put on our party clothes and drove to Philly for the celebration. I’m a big fan of Kelly, who died — too young, of AIDS — […]

Tweet I braved yesterday’s late spring chill in an age-inappropriate Stephen Sprouse mini. This is what happens when one hasn’t done the laundry OR the dry cleaning in a very long time.

Tweet The last time I wore the mermaid outfit by my designing friend Zang Toi, the weather in New York City was monsoon-like. Now, in Los Angeles, the weather is … monsoon-like. MrB said cheerfully, “At least you’re dressed to swim home!” Indeed I am! What Wendy Wore Halter and skirt: Zang Toi (2013) Shoes: […]

Tweet As I expected, many of the guests at tonight’s Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art wore beautiful evening gowns, rather than anything related to the “Punk: Chaos to Couture” exhibit that is being celebrated. Some of the gowns are very striking, but they’d be suitable for practically any red-carpet occasion. Actress […]

Tweet Every year, my invitation to the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art gets lost in the mail. It’s such a shame, because I would wear a real costume to match the party theme, instead of one of the generically pretty designer dresses that so many guests fall back on. Remember the […]

Tweet I was super-excited to go to the Vanity Fair Oscar party in Los Angeles last night. This event is a major thrill for me … but that doesn’t always mean I get a new dress for the occasion. I actually enjoy wearing the same dress to events that are just a few months apart, […]

Tweet I’m in Los Angeles for Oscar festivities! I’m not going to the ceremony this time, but that’s okay. I’ve already lurked seductively behind George Clooney on the Oscar red carpet once in my life — who could ask for anything more? Last night was The Weinstein Company’s pre-Oscar part at Soho House. Dorothy Pomerantz, […]

Tweet One more photo from New Year’s Eve, courtesy of my harem-loving friend Jesse. Artsy, isn’t it! UPDATED TO ADD: Oops! I lied. Here’s one more. How could I not share the photo that Stacy Lomman took of me heading back to my apartment? Also, I love that Stacy included me in her list of […]

Tweet A “hostess gown” is described by the website Vintage Fashion Guild as “a dressy full length garment for [home] entertaining, but not as formal as evening wear. Other than the full length, the lines followed current fashion.” The style was most popular from the 1930s to the 1970s, according to the site. In a […]
