SUPERMODEL HOME
Karlie Kloss’ NYC Townhome

Nate Berkus is everywhere…and I don’t mind. Absolutely love what his team created for fashion model Karlie Kloss and her new West Village townhome — it’s sophisticated, fun, and cheery all in one, just as I assume she would be. If you look closely, you’ll see they integrated pops of color and pattern on top of a neutral foundation of black, white, tan and gold = perfect for future evolution as she evolves herself…

VAN CLEEF & ARPELS
Boutique Opening Event

I’ve been so busy the past few weeks that I have not had the chance to share this fantastic event I recently attended! You may remember I had the unique experience of attending a private gallery tour and dinner at the Bowers Museum to view the A Quest for Beauty: The Art of Van Cleef & Arpels exhibit. So it was such an incredible honor to then be invited to the reopening of the Van Cleef & Arpels South Coast Plaza boutique just a few weeks later. Surrounded by beautiful jewelry and beautiful people (like Kate Bosworth and Lisalla Montenegro – stunners!), serenaded by a string quartet, and served tray-passed Champagne is an excellent way to spend an evening! The redesigned space is plush and luxurious, with gray dupioni silks, silver leaf, crystal and chrome that enhance the exquisite art of Van Cleef & Arpels so well that I thought to myself, “time to redecorate!” A few of the highlights from the evening…

CRAZY. SEXY. COOL.
Rosie HW on The Coveteur

I haven’t had the pleasure of perusing The Coveteur in some time, so I was especially blown away by model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s glamorous digs. We all know that girl’s got mad street style skills, but I guess I didn’t realize just how super self-aware she is of her look, at a young 26. It’s a plush Parisian prettiness with a slightly 70′s boho flair — and mixed with the cool tropical L.A. vibe of her home — I am ALL about it. Not to mention her new line of lingerie is the kind of loungewear I believe every woman should own (ditch those sweats, ladies!!!). Color me impressed with little Miss RHW…

KATE MOSS IS 40
Life is Good

After coming off strong from her first Playboy shoot this month, Kate Moss celebrates her 40th birthday today and appears to be at the top of her game. For someone who’s been in the biz since 14, it’s no wonder that this prolific pro is still #1 — and still has time to be a savvy businesswoman and adoring mum. Here’s a look at her work this past year…she rocked 39!!!!

(MAJOR) GIRL CRUSH
Daun Curry, Modern Declaration

It’s been two years now since I first discovered her work, so I can safely say, yep, major cross country crush going on here. But there are a few select women who seem to “wow” you over and over again, and Daun Curry is one of those women for me — she’s ridiculously talented, a mom of a 3-year old little girl, and stunningly gorgeous on top of it all. She’s got it all right? New York Social Diary recently had the chance to sit down with her for a heart-to-heart and a home tour of her NYC apartment…

THAT 40′s WOMAN
Jen Aniston for Glamour

I begrudgingly enter a new decade on Saturday(!), but it’s women like Jennifer Aniston who approach it with grace that inspire me to get over it, and own it. That said, I usually feel a tad too old for Glamour, but at the airport about to board a plane, I was sucked in by the art direction and styling (duh), and more so, how she just seemed to “glow” on the cover. Dare I say she looks better than she ever has? Chalk it up to personal trainers/chefs and Photoshop, but I would guess it’s a bit more than that: that inner beauty that comes from happiness, humility, and being comfortable with yourself. If that’s what the next decade has in store for me, I got this!

PURE JOIE
Fall 2013 “It” Girls

Another inspiration pinboard find: the latest ad from one of my favorite lines, Joie. I have more Joie in my closet than any other, so I’m especially excited that they’re stepping up their brand to a whole ‘nother level by recruiting Julia Restoin Roitfeld (artist and daughter of Carine, ex Vogue Paris Editor-in-Chief), Poppy Delevingne (socialite and sis of model Cara), and Anouck Lepère (model and real-life friend of  Dries van Noten and Olivier Theyskens) for this beautifully conceptualized vision. CEO and Creative Director Serge Azria explains, “Our concept has always been casual, comfortable, and luxurious, with each of these women embodying that idea.”  Lesson here: live, learn, love and work your own personal style, and opportunities will abound!

HIGH TECH STYLE
Kate Moss’ New Collab

Black, gold, croc ‘n studs…Kate Moss infuses her new “fashion tech” accessories line with her signature rocker chic style. She explains, “My phone’s as much a part of my look as my bag or shoes, and yet there’s so little choice out there.” Word. Not only do I dig said look, but I so admire how she has created and really owns her style, and works her personal brand in so many ways! No surprise I’m digging this collection too…

CHANNELING BARDOT
Diane Kruger in Marie Claire UK

Wow. I almost didn’t recognize Ms. Kruger in this editorial featuring couture fashion by Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, and Mary Katrantzou. The sexy sunny 60′s retro vibe she’s exuding is really working for her. Calling all bombshells…

BACK TO BASICS
Easy Chic in Black & Gray

Street style-wise, model mommy Miranda Kerr seems to do no wrong — even when she’s not trying. This casual chic look built around a simple gray tee maxi is so basic yet so well put together, that I’ll be putting it into heavy rotation immediately!
