I posted an eye-catching vintage dress by Versace’s diffusion label, Versus, earlier this month. Gorgeous designer/blogger/stylist/neighbor/BFF Stacy Lomman took notice and paid me a visit with a big Versace book in hand. She thought she spotted the Versace season that was then re-interpreted by Versus. While I flipped through the book admiring the photos of […]

I’m amused by the many people on my Twitter timeline who think that old age begins at 30. That doesn’t surprise me; I felt the same way. (Now 30 is the good old days to me. Oh, if only I knew then what I know now, etc.) It’s human nature. In 1827, the almost-49-year-old English […]

I was headed out the door when the BET Awards came on last night, but I noticed my Twitter timeline blowing up with derogatory references to singer Usher and his “pink boots.”  During dinner, I kept wondering what he was wearing to cause such shock and dismay. For some reason, I kept envisioning baby-pink cowboy […]

Grace Jones has always been a “Wear What You Want” icon … … but anyone who didn’t know that got schooled by Jones’s performance at Monday’s Diamond Jubilee concert in London. For the celebration of Queen Elizabeth II’s 60 years on the English throne, a leotard-clad Jones hula-hooped through her song “Slave to the Rhythm.” […]

Today is punk rocker Iggy Pop’s 64th birthday, but he’s been on my mind since last month. At the time, I was sitting in a doctor’s office, reading a 2010 New Yorker, when I came across an article on how the often-shirtless Pop was promoting a line of t-shirts. The article noted, “…neither age nor […]

Actress Cate Blanchett has become known for her bold fashion choices. I think we’d all be surprised if she turned up at an event looking merely “pretty.” The couture gown by Givenchy that Blanchett wore to this February’s Oscars was no exception. I didn’t love that dress in an “I want to wear it” way, […]

I laughed out loud — in delight! — when I saw actress Helena Bonham Carter’s wild hair, exposed tulle and, especially, her mismatched shoes at the Golden Globes in January. Would I wear this outfit? No. Do I love a woman whose outfits scream, “Fuck you, fashion police!”? Hell, yeah! I realized Helena had to […]
