In 2012, Andy Cohen asked Meryl Streep on Watch What Happens Live, “Name one bad film that you have made.” Her answer was, “Still of the Night” a film in 1982 in which she co-stared with Roy Schieder and re-teamed her with her Kramer vs. Kramer director Robert Benton. It wasn’t an Oscar contender but I enjoy the […]

Happy Valentine’s Day and President’s Day weekend! I know a lot of people will be leaving the city this weekend but there are a lot of things happening for those who have decided to stay or those who will be visiting. I’m not really that into orchids but Jeff Leatham, famed artistic director of the […]

What a week. It started out with torrential rain and flash flooding in New York and it’s ending with record breaking temperatures of over 100 degrees in Europe. Climate change is real and it’s one of the reasons I like traveling to cooler locals each summer. Next Thursday, I’m headed to Nantucket for Nantucket for […]

After a beautiful start to the long holiday weekend, many areas of the East Coast experienced cold and rainy weather today. It looks like Memorial Day might not be a wash out but when bad weather returns, you might want to think about heading to a theatre to see one of these wonderful documentaries. I […]

The best thing about the end of the year, besides pumpkin pie and presents, are all the anticipated fall films that are about to be released. The best movies always come out around the holidays so they will be fresh in people’s minds when they consider films for Academy Awards nominations. Not sure if remake […]

It’s that time again. Awards season has begun and the 2017 Golden Globes did not disappoint. There seemed to be an exceptionally great group of films and television shows nominated this year but more importantly, the stars shown on the red carpet. Here’s my round up of some of the best. I absolutely loved Kristen […]

Film Frenzy

01 . 10 . 16

Awards Season starts in full force tonight with the Golden Globes. I’ve seen a few of the films and performances nominated which makes me more excited to see who wins. I saw Brooklyn yesterday with Saoirse Ronan and absolutely loved the sweet coming of age immigrant story set in Brooklyn and Ireland. Joy is a bit […]

If anyone needs me tonight, I’ll be at the movie theater with my friends to see The Grand Budapest Hotel. Written and directed by the amazing Wes Anderson, with a little help from artist Hugo Guinness, the “complex caper” film is jam packed with celebrities and the fanciful world we’ve come to expect from Wes. […]

Wes’s World

02 . 26 . 14

Just giving you an early heads up that Wes Anderson is profiled in the WSJ magazine that will be available in The Wall Street Journal newspaper on Saturday, March 8, 2014.  His highly anticipated new movie The Grand Budapest Hotel will also be released the day before on March 7th.  I sat next to its star […]

When I saw the trailer for The Two Faces of January, I thought it reminded me of the film Talented Mr Ripley. Then I saw the movie poster which confirmed that the firm is based on the 1964 book The Two Faces of Januaryby Patricia Highsmith, the author of The Talented Mr. Ripley. The Two Faces […]

Today has been insanely busy.  While I try to organize myself and edit photos for a post, I leave you with the trailer for the new Wes Anderson film The Grand Budapest Hotel.  The all star cast led by Ralph Fiennes and quirky story line set in the 1920’s already has me hooked. Unfortunately, it […]

A Parisian Love Affair

09 . 05 . 13

It’s the first official day of New York Fashion Week but I have Paris on the brain.  On NOWNESS today is Escapade: A Parisian Love Affair, “an enchanting new love story inspired by the Parisian luxury design house Pierre Frey.” I love create people and companies that can’t be confined to just one medium and this film is a perfect complement […]

On the Road

09 . 25 . 12

I loved this spread Lost Highway the minute I saw it in the October 2012 issue of Vogue.  It features model Kati Nescher and Garrett Hedlund who stars as Dean Moriarty in the upcoming film On the Road due out in December.  It reminds me of my dad’s road trip photos from the late 1960’s […]

Beautiful Backdrop

09 . 15 . 12

The Beatrice Inn was a favorite with the fashion flock until it closed in 2009.  Vanity Fair editor in chief Graydon Carter recently resurrected the restaurant just in time for Calvin Klein to host a chic party during fashion week. I actually pulled together photos to post of the new space since I love the […]

The Radiant Child

07 . 12 . 10

It’s both sad and amazing that the artist Jean-Michel Basquiat was only 27 when he died of a heroin overdose in 1988. He truly was a talented yet tortured artist who has left us with a beautiful legacy of paintings. His friend Tamra Davis interviewed him in 1986 but the footage remained unseen until now. […]

Coco and Igor

06 . 08 . 10

The little straw boaters in the Resort shows of Jason Wu and Oscar de la Renta reminded me of Coco Chanel which then reminded me that there is another film coming out about the iconic designer. Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky is based on the book Coco & Igor by Chris Greenhalgh who also wrote […]

Even though the film won’t be released until May 28th, the Sex and the City 2 hoopla has already begun. While the fashions will probably steal all the scenes, I am interested in the sets, specifically Carrie and Big’s apartment. While there are some views in the trailer, I was able to find a few […]
