Tweet If you follow my personal Instagram, you know that I’ve been doing a bit of traveling lately. I’m currently in Athens, where I admired the Acropolis from a rooftop restaurant last night. I wore a vintage tiger-striped Clovis Ruffin dress that I got in 2008. (It was a maxi but I hemmed it.) I […]

Tweet As if there had been any doubt, tonight’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala proved that the attendees of this event are very comfortable with “pretty.” Last year’s gala, which celebrated the opening of the “Punk: Chaos to Couture” exhibit, should have inspired a lot of fun theme dressing, but with a few […]

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. What Wendy Wore “Pillow sweater”: Dsquared (purchased at Chalk, 2012) Skirt: Vintage Stephen Sprouse (possibly purchased in 2006) Boots: Prada (2008) Lipstick: Pleasure […]

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 […]

Tweet The real winner of the Grammys was Pharrell’s hat, and now designer Vivienne Westwood is winning too. After the hat was identified as a style introduced by Westwood in 1982 and featured in the video for Malcolm McLaren’s early hip-hop classic “Buffalo Gals,” the website for Westwood’s online World’s End shop crashed because of […]

Tweet Katy Perry wore a polka-dot-and-floral strapless gown on the red carpet at the American Music Awards. I got all excited, hoping she was wearing a 1980s Patrick Kelly … perhaps a ballgown version of the vintage dress currently available at Shrimpton Couture. Nope! Katy’s gown is actually from Oscar de la Renta’s Spring 2014 […]

Tweet Next May, the Philadelphia Museum of Art is going to present a retrospective of one of my favorite ’80s fashion designers: Patrick Kelly. I have a nice little Patrick Kelly collection: The notorious and frequently worn leopard gown (seen in 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011). Bow dress (seen in 2009 and 2011). Black mullet […]
