This past weekend I watched Hoarders for the first time. It was uncomfortable, disturbing, painful at times, watching these people lose their lives in, often, to their stuff. Their junk. Whether you call it collections or memorabilia or memories or garbage, it's stuff. Out-of-control stuff. I had a moment or two of satisfaction knowing I'm the opposite. I love to purge. There are constantly give away bags in my bedroom, full of clothes to drop off at Housing ... Read More

Recently I received a press release from a publicist asking me to share the following clip from a movie called "ITW Pathway." The film boasts a ridiculously amazing cast — including Terrence Howard, Temple Grandin, Rufus Wainwright, Famke Janssen, Will Shortz, Moby, Kent Cullers, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, Jorgen Leth, Dave Matthews, Alan Cumming, Rosie Perez, Aimee Mullins, Bob Mankoff and Will Oldham — and the ...

While I’d be the last one to promote vandalism, a few headliners caught my attention, and made me wonder exactly who the enemy is in the recent graffiti crackdown.
The case that warranted my outrage ... Read More

This past Tuesday was the Rodarte show. The location was top secret and wasn't revealed to the anyone until Monday morning. A little bird texted me the location (a telegram, a bird song and smoke signals would've take way too long). I made my way over to what I consider one of the best and most important shows during New York fashion week to take some street style photos.
Per usual, larger images here. Anna Dello Russo, Editor of Vogue NipponAnna ... Read More

Tomorrow evening Gitana Rosa Gallery in Williamsburg will kick off the fall season with a multimedia exhibition revolving around the male nude. Whether exalted in Greco-Roman times as a figure of heroism or dismissed as an unneeded presence of male dominance, the male body is a fascinating subject. "Hung" recognizes this and the artists featured in the exhibition are working to challenge both men's and women's perceptions of the male nude.Where do we stand in ... Read More

I’m not sure how many of you had the unfortunate experience of being shipped off to camp for a few weeks out of the summer, but for me the trauma lingers on like the scent of insect repellent and sweat after a half dozen games of Capture the Flag. Mom and Dad may have partied it up while you spent your formidable years making birdfeeders out of peanut butter and pinecones, and coaxing fellow campers into eating mysterious red berries, but now it’s your turn for ...

I’ll admit it’s nearly impossible for me to discuss New York's Fashion Week without a hint of cynicism, but when I stumbled upon the Gothamist’s tribute to Fashion Weeks passed I couldn’t help but drool all over my keyboard. The NYC blog does a virtual time warp as it takes a look back at three memorable decades of fashion: the 1960s, ‘50s and ‘40s, and the couture coveted by women around the world.
As you click through ... Read More
