Oh, To Be Young and Beautiful

Here's what I loved about Baz Luhrmann's wonderfully directed version of F. Scoot Fitzgerald's novel "The Great Gatsby" (besides Leonardo DiCaprio of course). Hello Miuccia Prada! I would just die if my designs were featured in a film like this. OH! The clothes, the clothes, the clothes, I just couldn't get enough of it. Daisy's (Carey Mulligan) crystal Miuccia Dress with that fur and crystal chandelier like shawl gave me so much life. Even Jordan's (Elizabeth Debicki) dresses were stunning (including the party goers), and let's not forget Leonardo DiCaprio in that white suite (or ANY suit for that matter), I mean he even made it look good while it was wet (who else can do that??). Oh, and the movie was pretty good too.

Revenge Wears Prada

For all you book lovers ( like myself ) the long awaited sequel to one of my favorite entertaining reads " The Devil Wears Prada", Lauren Weisberger gives us "Revenge Wears Prada". You can pre-order you copy today on Amazon or iBooks. With iBooks you can even get a sample of the first couple of pages. Available June 4th, 2013.

Almost a decade has passed since Andy Sachs quit the job “a million girls would die for” working for Miranda Priestly at Runway magazine—a dream that turned out to be a nightmare. Andy and Emily, her former nemesis and co-assistant, have since joined forces to start a highend bridal magazine. The Plunge has quickly become required reading for the young and stylish. Now they get to call all the shots: Andy writes and travels to her heart’s content; Emily plans parties and secures advertising like a seasoned pro. Even better, Andy has met the love of her life. Max Harrison, scion of a storied media family, is confident, successful, and drop-dead gorgeous. Their wedding will be splashed across all the society pages as their friends and family gather to toast the glowing couple. Andy Sachs is on top of the world. But karma’s a bitch. The morning of her wedding, Andy can’t shake the past. And when she discovers a secret letter with crushing implications, her wedding-day jitters turn to cold dread. Andy realizes that nothing—not her husband, nor her beloved career—is as it seems. She never suspected that her efforts to build a bright new life would lead her back to the darkness she barely escaped ten years ago—and directly into the path of the devil herself. . .
