Happy Birthday Diana Ross

diana rossThe soulful Diana Ross turns another year older today!! I’ve read the nicest things about this woman and it only makes me wish I’d run into her at a super market to say hello. If that happen, I know there is no way I’d be gutsy enough to approach her.  She is one of the most stylish diva’s out there. Happy Birthday Diana!!

Rebel Girl: Isabella Blow

She is an iconic female in the fashion world who still inspires today. Before Lady Gaga there was Isabella- but those two ladies are in no way to be compared. Isabella Blow is someone who influenced people in high fashion and styled some of the greats.  Isabella lived a dream in a world that included Alexander McQueen, Anna Wintour and Andre Leon Talley to name a few. She was a muse for the great man behind all those crazy hats, Philip Treacy. It’s a dream that only few will grasp in this lifetime. I’ve been reading, “Blow by Blow” written by her husband Detmar Blow and its very factual and emotional. It gets you caught up in the turmoil she’s succumbed to throughout her life and it only makes you idolize her more. Then you realize no one has it easy in life. From here on out I believe Isabella’s iconic fashion, artistry and perseverance will transcend.

Araks Fall 2013 Ready to Wear

Araks Yeramyan  is known for her androgynous and flawless designs. She was a Marc Jacobs intern, on the J Crew design team and has an established lingerie collection.  The Araks Fall RTW collection is a coalesce of Tahitian florals meets night-time getaway. The straight lines and Edwardian silhouettes makes the collection reminiscent of Katherine Hepburn’s androgynous style. araks_032 araks_031 araks_024 araks_023 araks_021 araks_019 araks_012 araks_006 araks_005 araks_003 araks_002

Happy Birthday Mia Farrow

Mia Farrow

Celebrate Mia Farrow’s birthday today! She starred in lots of classic films including Rosemary’s Baby, which was her first leading role. She is a former fashion model and her resume includes 12 Woody Allen films. One of her recent roles is in the film Dark Horse written and directed by one of my favorites Todd Solondz. His films are so unexpected and jaw dropping! If you’re in the LA area you can head down to Cinefamily tonight to see Farrow in the 1977 film Full Circle. Recently Farrow has been recognized as a humanitarian and activist. Check out her site to see what you can do to help.
