Yesterday I attended the press preview for Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait, the new exhibition at the San Francisco Contemporary Jewish Museum. The timing couldn't be better, as the Amy Wineouse documentary is currently screening everywhere, an it seems like there's a wave of recognition an renewed grief for the beehived bad girl who died way too young.
I used to play tennis, from the age of 8 up until I was a teenager. It never looked like this :) This summery campaign by Israeli designer Naama Bezalel is so fresh, and totally tongue-in-cheek -it's the old-school tennis fantasy, not the Serena Wiiliams and Sharapova one. And it gave me an idea for a party I' going to throw this summer.
When I saw this editorial at the November issue of V Magazine, I was, first of all, delighted that Gemma Ward is back. She's one of my very favorite models ever since her breakthrough, and I stayed true to her magical beauty even when she decided to disappear a couple of years ago. Her comeback proves that timing is nothing when you have such timeless appeal.
A couple of weeks ago I got invited to a press preview of High Style, the wonderful style exhibition from the Brooklyn museum. It was my very first visit to the Legion, and in such festive circumstances, too! Being slightly late, I rushed up the historic stairs and found all of San Francisco's finest press representatives gathered at the reception.
After a short speech program, we begun a guided tour, led by the curator Jan Glier Reeder herself, moving through the exhibits. A good looking guy was following us around holding a portable speaker, which I thought was a charming addition. But of course, beautiful creations by Givenchy, Lanvin, Dior and many other designers, from 1910-1980, took the cake on "charming" and "magical".
I'm an only child. As such, I always fantasize about the cool brother or the smart sister I could have. Well, who am I kidding - it's not really true. I've been perfectly fine on my own, but the concept of sisterhood and brotherhood always fascinates me.
