70th Annual Golden Globe: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

The chilling 55 degree weather didn’t stop the celebs from glamming it up for the 70th Annual Gold Globes. The night turned out to be filled with surprises including Jodie Foster coming OUT, even though it wasn't a mystery as well fashion hit and misses. From Hunger Games starlet Jennifer Lawrence looking dazzling in her red Dior Haute Couture to Helen Merrin looking like the total GMILF in Badgley Mischka. Then there is the group that should have looked in the mirror a few more times, or maybe just hired and REALLY honest stylist, like break-out star Nene Leakes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, a Hollywood make over should be underway for her, but they should certainly keep some of her Atlanta sass. And then there is the downright ugly, the industry is a great outlet for individualism but sometimes an event is an event and you should look you BEST.

London's Mens Fashion Week: F/W 2013

Alexander Mcqueen

The label recently opened a men's shop on Savile Row, where Beau Brummell kick-started male style as we now understand it more than two centuries ago, where McQueen himself began his career more than two decades ago, so there was purest logic to the attention paid to hyper-tailored tradition, and its roots in military dressing. But it was purest McQueen to explode that tradition, fracturing the pinstripes, patchworking the classicism, layering a velvet jacket over a silk dressing gown for the kind of languidly decadent effect that is as timeless as Oscar Wilde's prose. OMG I so what EVERY SINGLE PIECE, some just to stare at...

London's Mens Fashion Week: F/W 2013

Topman Design

The brand that has launched a ton of fashion men running around New York City, has revealed its collection and I can NOT wait to grab a few items when they hit our shores. Huge parkas with matching deep-pleated cotton drill pants evoked vintage images of the gentleman explorer. Peacoats printed with Tibetan patterns and knits woven with the om symbol hinted at the Shangri-la he might find when he reached his mountaintop. The shift in the show's color scheme from winter white to rich Buddhist oranges and fuchsias made the journey even more vivid, with a blast of George Harrison's "What Is Love?" to reinforce our traveler's spiritual enlightenment
