sequins enforced. marc jacobs' party dress code.

Marc jacobs gloss party rabbit ears

kittens, marc jacob's ny fashion week party invite just arrived and i am RSVPing YES for you and me!

here's the skinny: marc's september soiree is a book launch for gloss: the work of chris von wangenheim. if you are not familiar with mr. wangenheim's photography you gotta check it out! his notorious lens captured the coke and lamé filled '70s better than anybody. his muses were the denizens of studio 54, supermodel gia, and dobermans. He was even the inspiration behind the 1978 film the eyes of laura mars, which is one of the trashiest (i.e. most fabulous) fashion photography/horror flicks ever made. 

now, onto the party!

mr. jacobs' fashionable fete will honor chris von wangenheim with the swankiest, sickest, most sequined, and sans subtle dress code ever! in fact, he is so passionate about the party attire, he even specified it with all caps in his invite.

the instructions read:


 let's unpack these looks, shall we?

Vintage lipstick assembly line

kittens, i have tried every single pinky, nudey, rosey lipstick on this unicorn planet. from sticks to stains to sheers, i am always on the search for the perfect pinky shade that will take me from palisades client meetings to downtown go-go dancing.

after years of tint testing, i've composed my top ten lippy picks below. these go-to gals can be worn solo or layered in any combo. they all work well together much unlike our congress.

do you have any favorite pinky neutrals? let me know and i'll give 'em a spin!

Pink and nude lipsticks lip liners and lipgloss

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!

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.

Vivien leigh oscar 1940 gown with the wind
