Pretty damn speechless, I must admit.  This editorial by Steven Meisel for the April 2015 issue of Vogue Italia completely caught me by surprise — it took me a moment to realize I wasn’t actually looking at something from decades ago!  Styled by Karl Templer and starring Karen Elson and Christopher Niquet, this glamorous silver-screen vision of fluid dance steps and gowns that appear to float on air is a treat indeed.

The Natural: Jess Gold for Marie Claire Australia, July 2014

Quiet, tailored and natural, photographer Nicole Bentley has captured exactly what I want my summer to feel like, look like, wear like…down to the wild hair and the amazing eyebrows.  Have we ever discussed my lackluster brows?  While my mother and sister have had to wage a lifelong battle with theirs, mine just decided to never show up.  Fact: I’ve never ever had them done, ever.  Rather, since I was old enough to care, I’ve filled them in using a variety techniques and have always harbored intense jealousy at those lucky to be born with “strong brows” like Jess here.  I suppose the grass truly is always greener…even when it comes to eyebrows.

Dear Claire Dhelens,

As you are a French Voguette (a fashion and accessories editor to be precise), I was primed to be a fan.  In fact, I’m sorry that it has taken me so long to identify you among that amazing posse of black-clad, long-limbed ladies that traipse through the Tuileries.  I’ll admit that Emmanuelle and Capucine caught my attention first — je suis désolé!  But with your American west-themed editorial for the children’s supplement of French Vogue, you’ve got my attention.  In fact, you’ve even managed to get me to post pictures of kids on here.  No mean feat, let me tell you.  This happens virtually never.

Bisous,M.

With that said, I’ll just allow everyone else to enjoy these lovely photos by Andreas Sjodin, styled by Mme. Dhelens.

Bambi Northwood-Blyth stars in an editorial shot by Annemarieke van Drimmelen for the July 2013 issue of Vogue Netherlands that perfectly captures all that I’m feeling this summer.  It’s been a long while since we’ve looked at an editorial together, as I wanted to hold off until I found something that really spoke to me, and I’m so happy that I did…

Dear Vogue Spain, please exit my brain.

In an editorial featured earlier this month, Vogue.es drew inspiration from 40’s film noir — namely the Veronica Lake and Alan Ladd classic The Blue Dahlia — to put together a series of looks in the spirit of Ms. Lake, Marlene Dietrich and Gene Tierney.  You can probably guess whose look immediately caught my eye.  Also doesn’t hurt that Ms. Dietrich happens to be my birthday twin.  Imagine that.  In any event, these gorgeous photos have inspired an earnest need — like you wouldn’t believe — for a stole.  Perhaps this winter shall be known henceforth as the winter of the stole…  Thoughts?

McQueen Trumps All

09/01/2013 § 2 Comments

Harper's Bazaar Feb 1965.

Last weekend like a proper New Yorker, I attended a brunch of the “all you can drink” variety and the service was so efficient that it proved impossible to keep track of how many glasses of champagne we actually had.  And as half-full glasses were filled over and over, the conversation slowly and predictably degraded from such high-minded topics such as art, current events and important life decisions to…the most attractive people of all time.  I hear this is a common side effect of champagne.

While my initial choices were cast aside as a bit conventional and surprisingly boring (my deepest apologies to Jon Hamm and George Clooney), when I mentioned Steve McQueen there was a murmur of immediate approval — here was someone who everyone agreed upon.   The next time when I’m faced with this question, I’ll just go ahead and play my trump card early.

From the February 1965 issue of Harper’s Bazaar, a trifecta of icons:
Steve McQueen, Jean Shrimpton, and Richard Avedon.

Flying Into Fall

12/08/2012 § Leave a comment

In love with the Fall/Winter lookbook by the Tulsa boutique Miss Jackson’s!  Shot at Tulsa International and featuring a gorgeous 1952 Daimler and a beautifully restored airplane, the nostalgia these photos invoke is most fitting when you consider the fact that Miss Jackson’s has been serving the Tulsa area for over 100 years.

Nacho in Bridgehampton

It’s been awhile since we’ve talked about polo but these gorgeously horsey photos of Argentine polo star and Ralph Lauren model Nacho Figueras, taken at Two Trees Farm in Bridgehampton, seemed like good reason to bring it up.  Even better?  There’s also a behind-the-scenes video clipYou’re welcome.
