Fine and Dandy: Grand Budapest Hotel Halloween

Fine and Dandy shop Grand Budapest Hotel Halloween

oh hello, darlings! remember me? i remember you. and let me say, you've never looked more smashing!

i'm opening the WHORANGE doors today to shine a spotlight on matt fox and enrique crame, the magnificent proprietors of new york's fine and dandy shop. this year, they won halloween with their head-to-toe channeling of concierge gustave h and lobby boy zero moustafa from the grand budapest hotel.

the threads. the vintage luggage. the mendl's box. the 'staches. the attitude. wes anderson would be proud!

congratulations, matt and enrique! thank you for keeping halloween haute and for always bringing how-to handsome to us all.

mad men season 7 - brace yourself

Mad Men poster key art by icon Milton Glaser

while cruising down beverly boulevard yesterday, i nearly crashed my car when i saw this glorious MAD MEN SEASON 7 MURAL tumbling across the wall of the sofitel hotel.

the artist behind the technicolor, art nouveau masterpiece is iconic '60s artist milton glaser (age 84!). mad men's creator, matthew weiner, sought out glaser as his dream key art illustrator for the show's final season, and luckily for all of us, glaser agreed.

similar to enlisting the art of brian sanders for season 6, weiner truly celebrates and honors the master artists of the mid-century. the result is nostalgic, sophisticated, and exuberantly authentic. thank you, matthew!

but wait -- there's more...

AMC released mad men's season 7 character photos, and darlings, it is head-to-toe perfection.

from peggy's enamel daisy pin to gentlemen sporting various shades of mustard, i'm happily drunk in a sea of fringe and polyester. bring on 1969 and bring it on forever!

costumes by janie bryant. photography by frank ockenfels. enjoy!

best dressed. best speech. best liza minnelli encounter. best supporting actress.

i love this woman. congratulations, lupita!

every best actress oscar dress worn since 1929

MediaRun digital illustration Best Actress Oscar dress worn since 1929

hold onto your hair rollers, because tomorrow is the big night, kittens!

the gowns! the glamour! the betting pools (humble brag: i've won over $600 over the past 10 years).

thanks to london-based digitalrun media, we have this truly fabulous illustration bible, which chronicles the gowns worn by oscar winning actresses since 1929. some are iconic, some are infamous. study and commit to memory, darlings. there will be a test.

a few of my faves below. stay glamours, my friends:

Audrey Hepburn Oscar gown givenchy for Roman Holiday

above: bow down! audrey hepburn in givenchy. best actress: roman holiday, 1954. always and forever the queen.

Oscar gown Bette Davis 1939 for Jezebel

above: bette davis works it out in tulle and gossamer "feathers" for her 1939 oscar win for jezebel.

Vivien leigh oscar 1940 gown with the wind

above: the lovely vivien leigh poses with her oscar and dessert plate (two of my favorite things) for her gone with the wind win, circa 1940. (side note: how come red carpet ladies don't wear gown with prints more often?)

Grace Kelly oscar gown by Edith Head the Country Girl 1955

above: perfection - grace kelly in a gown by iconic costume designer edith head. film: the country girl, circa 1955.

Elizabeth Taylor and Eddie Fisher Oscar gown Butterfield 8

above: in 1961, elizabeth taylor wins for butterfield 8. liz wears an ivory silk, embroidered ball gown, waist rose (and sash!), and see-through high neck yellow top. i would totally wear this. and my hair would look fabulous.

Gwyneth paltrow pink Ralph Lauren Oscar gown

above: gwyneth paltrow wins in pink for shakespeare in love. gown by ralph lauren. an iconic dress is born, circa 1999.

Marion cotillard oscar gown by Jean Paul Gaultier

Marion cotillard oscar gown by Jean Paul Gaultier 2008

above: quite possibly my favorite gown in the history of gowns. marion cotillard in jean paul gaultier neptune's muse dress (not the official name -- that's what i call it. jean paul, you're welcome to use it.), circa 2008.

i die.
