High-fashion can be ridiculous. Runway shows are meant to be dramatic: there is no way the average woman could wear couture. But everyone pretends that showing fashion like this is totally normal.Except these guys:The gay gene is totally connected to the funny-bone, and there are few people as funny . . .
You know that bag of candy in the back of your pantry? The one you try not to take out very often? But sometimes, nothing else will do and you just have to have a few pieces.Tim Gunn's new book is on my Kindle and it's taunting me like a bag of mini-chocolate bars.You might remember Tim from . . .
Last night's fashion show benefit at Santana Row was beautifully staged and so much fun. I was lucky enough to attend with women who also watch Rachel Zoe, so we could make RZ-like comments all night. Such as "I could so see Demi in this. Or Cameron."Oh. My. God. Covet these. Not that I could walk . . .
This post is for a specific girlfriend of mine, and when she sees this, she will know it's for her. Immediately.You see, I spent a week with her at her vacation home. She couldn't stop razzing me because I wore my pink thermal jammies and purple scrunchie to bed. I think it was the scrunchie that . . .

What woman would be caught dead walking around in this Mad Hatter getup? And what straight man would want to be seen with her if she . . .
Age creeps up on us so imperceptibly that it's hardly noticeable.Until one of our icons dies, or, as in the case of designer Valentino, retires.I was reminded of the passing of time today when I saw the wonderful documentary, Valentino: the Last Emperor. I highly recommend it.Valentino has been a . . .
Everyone's Mad Men crazy and with good reason. The show's masterful depiction of the world in March 1960 is a fascinating exploration of an adult life even we Baby Boomers were too young to really take in.But what I'm loving most are the fashions, all very tail-end-of-the-1950s. Beautifully . . .
