Last night we had the pleasure of attending the party for the release of Ari Seth Cohen's new book, Advanced Style, and it was a thrill to see so many of the fabulous ladies who appear in the book (and on Ari's blog) in attendance. They were all so lovely! The party was held at the rooftop space of the New Museum, and I was charmed by many of the women, who love to dress up and show their flair!Lady Francesca Todd, (above) – who once owned a lion and an ...

If you listen to Rufus Wainwright for long enough (say 2 or 3 minutes), his lyrics will spoil you. They’re so witty and inventive that you’ll likely be ruined for listening to any other current pop out there. Rather than blabbing on about clichéd emotions, Wainwright tells stories with his music—odd, hilarious, and totally true ones. (The song “Rashida,” off his latest album, Out of the Game, is about a real-deal spat he had ... Read More
 This week's Time magazine cover story about Bill Sears has everyone up in arms. Even though the article is about Sears himself, the cover image shows a woman breastfeeding her large child, and the headline "Are you Mom Enough?' seems to be screaming "Lady, you are a freak!"  Even though the boy on the cover is apparently 3 years old, he looks to be about 5 or 6. Folks are saying this is pedophilia, and perverted. While everyone knows "breast is best" ... Read More
We are in LUV with the Alabama Shakes, especially lead singer Brittany Howard's rock-em sock-em vocal style. This girl can SING. Watch her belt out the band's hit "Hold On" (off the debut album Boys & Girls) on Letterman last night--as you can see, Dave was very impressed. There is much-deserved hype swirling around this band right now, and seeing them live is a must. I was fortunate enough to catch them on Tuesday night here in NYC at an MTV taping, which was ...

If you're under the age of 45, you've probably never heard of the flamboyant glam-rocker Jobriath, but in the mid 70s, he was expected to be bigger than Bowie, and his name and image were plastered all over buses, billboards, and national music magazines. At a time when rockers were flirting with ambiguously gay facades (Bowie, Lou Reed, Elton John, etc.) Jobriath called himself a "true fairy" in the press and was cited by critics to be the next big ...

We were saddened to hear of the passing of the wonderful Zelda Kaplan today, at the age of 95. Zelda has been a fixture on the nightlife scene in New York for years, and was beloved by anyone that ever saw her in her brightly colored African print outfits and large dark sunglasses. She was involved in charities to raise awareness of female genital mutilation, and  women's rights in Africa and was much loved by fashionistas everywhere. Often seen out till ... Read More
Beth Höeckel, a 33 year old Baltimore native, makes beautiful and dreamy art. Her collages will simply blow your mind. They are creepy and sometimes sad, weird and nostalgic. Höeckel uses vintage magazine images (often of women) and places them in space age moonscapes, or against ominous skies, often with their backs to us, gazing at the freaky landscapes she creates. I just love these so much! To see more, visit her site, and check our April/May issue ... Read More
I got very lucky and scored a ticket to see Björk’s BIOPHILIA live show last night at the Hall of Science out in Queens, and I’m so glad I made the trip. Performed on a round stage in the middle of the circular building, underneath a giant Tesla Coil, Björk was flanked on all sides by what everyone knows is THE secret weapon to a compelling show: A chorus of 20 girls! (just ask Karen O!). The voices of the chorus of young women (they are from ... Read More
The snow is falling here again, and the Sundance Film Festival is still plowing through the town of Park City. I’ve been to 21 films so far and the main theme that I’ve noticed is the overwhelming presence of strong female leads and women directors.  One of the hottest films here is Beasts of the Southern Wild, a truly original film that takes place in the swamps of Louisiana, and stars a six year old girl named Quvanzhand Wallis. Melanie Lynskey ... Read More

Dispatches From Sundance

BY Laurie in Movies |

We sent our favorite photographer (and Laurie’s main squeeze) Michael Lavine to The Sundance Film Festival to check out the festival and report back to us on what’s good this year. _____________________________________________ While deeply entrenched in the insanity known as Sundance, I spend most of my time shuttling from theater to theater, waiting in line, watching movies and then talking to strangers about said movies while waiting in another line ...
