SPRING TREND TO TRY
The Graphic Print Dress

I’ve got a photo shoot next week at a “very L.A.” hotel, and have been looking for a graphic print dress to complete the look. Enter Clover Canyon‘s Spring 2014 collection. Inspired by the architecture and landscape of Southern California, the pieces celebrate mid-century modernists like Lautner and Eames, as well as contemporists like Frank Gehry and James Turrell. Seeing how the graphic print dress is definitely an “in” for spring, I thought I’d give the trend a try…

SPRING READY
Closet Refresh

It could be the time change — or the fact that we had 80F weather here this weekend — but my brain has suddenly bloomed into spring mode. Here are some of the pieces I’ve got my eye on that will certainly give my closet a much-needed refresh for the season…

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…

SPRING TREND TO TRY
The White Shirtdress

Despite the current “cool down” here in So Cal, I’m already looking ahead to Spring essentials. And what better item for the crisp Spring air than a crisp white shirtdress? Dress it up with a blazer, or down with chunky sandals — any way you play it, it’s shaping up to be a must-have for the season…

VAN CLEEF & ARPELS
at the Bowers Museum

Last week I had the honor of attending a private gallery tour and dinner at the Bowers Museum here in Orange County to view A Quest for Beauty: The Art of Van Cleef & Arpels. The exhibit details the rich history of the brand over a span of 100 years, as well as the innovation and artistry behind both their iconic and never before seen pieces. Not only is it a rare treat to view exquisite pieces that have adorned famous women in history like Liz Taylor and Maria Callas, but also on view is Princess Grace of Monaco’s collection loaned by the royal family for this exhibit. The entire experience is a delight in deco detailing and truly inventive craftsmanship…

Vogue Paris’ pop-up Hugo & Victor patisserie at retailer Printemps Hausmann steals the Fashion Week pre-show with its pretty in pink paneled walls, 1970′s brass and chrome pieces, and Vogue cover prints from the past. It’s a fun little maison-away-from-maison for the foodie fashion lover…

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!!!!

LE DONNE FORTI
Versace Pre-Collection FW14

Versace nailed it with their Fall/Winter 2014-2015 Pre-Collection, taking the softness of silk satin and pale pink, and toughening it up with black leather, studs and zippers. Add in the crispness of a few good white blouses, the regality of a classic crest, and a little sparkle, and we’ve got all of my fave elements in one very zzexy, wearable collection. An ode to le donne forti (“strong women”) everywhere…
