Bridget Foley’s Diary: And the Oscar Woes To…

Hollywood can’t get out of its own way.
This week’s news that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will add a most popular movie Oscar not only sent civilian social media into conniptions, but also the Hollywood press and Oscar voters. Reaction was immediate and one-sided, mostly variations on, “what the heck were they thinking?”
Getting less attention, but as important, is the decision that, in the interest of keeping the broadcast to a viewer-friendly three hours, some awards will be presented during commercials, with winners getting their few seconds of fame via edited snippets as at the Tony Awards. That move speaks to an identity dilemma: Is the Oscars’ primary function the acknowledgment of achievement or entertainment? In a perfect world, the two would beautifully coexist, but the world is far from perfect, and Hollywood is hardly a nonprofit enterprise.

Still, it takes a village to make a movie. It’s sad that the organizers of this mega event, supposedly creative thinkers, can’t conjure a better way to reverse the ratings bleed (down 19 percent last year), than to de-emphasize the essential contributions of off-the-radar types. Before the new Popular Oscar gets added, there are 24 awards, which sound

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Sunday, a Day of Dress

Remember the 40-hour work week? Even if you don’t, you’ve probably heard of it. Much of the employed world has left it far behind, and much of the world’s employed now take an approach somewhere between philosophical and pragmatic — whatever it takes to get the job done; constant connectivity has won; lucky to have a job.
All of the above duly considered and acknowledged as legitimate, fashion nevertheless seems extreme in its can-do/will-do gusto. Case in point: this Sunday’s official lineup of CFDA-sanctioned presentations and shows. The Fashion Calendar lists three: Lorod, from 2 to 3 p.m.; Victor Glemaud, from 4 to 6 p.m., and Alexander Wang, at 8 p.m.
In the big picture of a world in turmoil, a random working Sunday may seem a small matter, and as a societal class, show-going fashion employees make poor victims. But given the reality of this industry — the 24/7 relentlessness of the primary show schedule; the parameters of this endless, whatever-it-is-we’re-in-now season that began in early May and will carry on at least through July couture week, encompassing clothes characterized as fall, resort/cruise and spring — was it essential for the CFDA to add a summer Sunday to the schedule? A perusal

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Favorite Looks From the Globes

The unofficial “Oprah for President” movement officially launched. Many women looked lovely in black.
Two points hardly of equal weight, but the social media frenzy over one does not negate the legitimacy of acknowledging the other — inclusive of noting the brands and designers who helped the women realize their looks — particularly at a televised awards ceremony which, until now, has been considered an entertainment show largely dependent on its fashion element for its success.
Had the red-carpet frenzy spun wildly out of control long before Sunday night’s Golden Globes? Of course. And in fact, it’s not a situation limited to the red carpet. On any given day, any fashion journalist will find in her or his mailbox a litany of e-mails from junior p.r.s across the industry boasting that “this or that house is delighted that this or that celebrity wore this or that dress/skirt/handbag/loafer to this or that event — or on the street outside of Starbucks.” The notification stream falls somewhere between tedious and embarrassing. However, most people in fashion know that if someone’s wearing a piece of something you love, you’ll probably mention it. If you don’t know whose it is, you’ll ask. If that makes us all shallow,

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Solo Pierpaolo

Pierpaolo Piccioli is a man of his word. On a brief trip to New York earlier this month for a benefit for Every Mother Counts, he agreed last-minute to a chat with WWD — no major agenda, just a catch-up during which he would reflect on his first full year as solo creative director at Valentino. Somehow, time ran away, as tends to happen, and Pierpaolo flew home. But unlike time, he didn’t run. Rather, we spoke on the phone last week.
WWD: You’ve had quite a year, your first full year as solo creative director at Valentino. What have been the biggest changes for you?
Pierpaolo Piccioli: I think that I work more spontaneously, less over-thinking. I always start the collection with a reflection about the time, and then I work very, very spontaneously. It’s a more instinctive, more direct, more emotional approach to the work.
That is the difference. When you work in twos and you respect each other, you have to confront, you have to arrive to a common point. It’s the only way to work together, to arrive at a good point on which you agree. But when you are alone, I’ve just learned in this year, you can

Boosie Badazz “Dirty Diary,” Young Dolph “Point Across” & More | Daily Visuals 10.25.17

Boosie Badazz has got a story to tell and if you’ve been paying attention to his music you’d know that his life is basically an open book.

To drive that point home, the Banton Rouge rapper keeps the clip to his cut “Dirty Diary” simple and simply lays down on what seems to be a red velvet surface and scribbles into his personal journal. Kinda reminds us of Brandy’s “Sittin’ In My Room” but a lot less happy.

Young Dolph meanwhile prefers to have some exotic company around him and for his visuals to “Point Across” is joined by a bevy of young ladies dinner, drinks and the warmth of a pit fire.

Bridget Foley’s Diary Harvey Weinstein: Just Disgusting

Oh, Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna. Your words were not taken out of context. You spoke them into the camera, the entire gist there for the viewing. People who know you and your career and your four-plus decades of dedication to women’s empowerment find it hard to believe that you meant what you said, but you said it: “You look at everything all over the world today, you know, and how women are dressing and, you know, what they’re asking by just presenting themselves the way they do. What are they asking for? Trouble.”
Your comment implies solidarity with Harvey Weinstein’s “apologetic” view of his sleazebag activities: The culture made him do it. Yes, you released a clarifying statement, but that’s not enough. You’ve got to address this head-on, in conversation. I’d like it to be with WWD and me. But somewhere, with someone. Soon.
•   •   •
The greater issue, of course, is not about Donna Karan’s strange, out-of-character red-carpet comment. It is about vile behavior tolerated by various subcultures within the greater culture. The culture of power. The culture of sanctimony and hypocrisy that often emanates from Hollywood. The culture of sexual predation in certain circles of power, that

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Bedford Calls

“The automobile has become our national sex symbol,” wrote William Faulkner in a lengthy evidentiary musing on sex and cars in “Intruder in the Dust.”
Faulkner had but words and wits — and whiskey — to make his point. On Tuesday, Ralph Lauren will support a similar thesis with evidence of a more tangible sort when he shows his fall wear-now collection in the upstate garage that houses his world-class car collection. Three hundred guests will be transported by car — alas, those of the traditional car service variety, no vintage red Ferraris — to the event in Bedford, N.Y., 40 miles north of Manhattan. The collection has been seen before, in museum exhibitions in Paris and Boston. But this is the first time Lauren will open one of his properties for a fashion show.
Asked about the dramatic change of venue, Lauren told WWD that, in considering fashion focus on “experiences,” he thought this would make an interesting tie-in to his fashion perspective. “When someone gets into a beautiful car, it enhances their world. If you get into a racing car, it’s sexy.”
WWD: So Ralph, why Bedford?
Ralph Lauren: It’s one of those things. I was working on my collection and I

Bridget Foley’s Diary: When Should Ivanka Cry Uncle Over Dad?

Before the presidential campaign and election, Ivanka Trump self-identified and was perceived as a businesswoman passionate about women’s empowerment. You’d have been hard-pressed to hear someone speak negatively about her, with words such as lovely, hard-working, self-directed and genuine typical descriptives.

 
And then, Dad ran for president and won.
 
Throughout and after the election, and especially since her role in the Trump administration shifted from merely “daughter,” as she said she initially intended, to G-20 Summit-attending formal adviser, Ivanka has taken her hits, critics questioning not only her qualifications but also her motives and her silence in light of various presidential outbursts. Following President Trump’s shocking equal assignation last weekend of “blame on both sides” when white supremacists, many brandishing swastikas, stormed Charlottesville, Va., to protest the planned removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee, the criticism escalated exponentially, with many wondering, how could Ivanka not speak out? 
 
Whether or not she knew just what she was getting into in accepting her White House role, surely Ivanka knows her father, and she is accustomed to life in shared spotlights, his and her own. Though thrust into the former as a child when her parents’ public marital woes made for tabloid grist, she chose the latter early on. An adolescent flirtation with modeling crossed over to television; at 15,

Publisher: Stone Marshall Studio

Seller: Nathan Lawrence


Ever wonder what life is like in Minecraft? Read Legends and Heroes to find out! Created by Stone Marshall , the author of the popular Flynn’s Log series. The Stone Marshall Studio is developing a new series: Legends & Heroes A hybrid of comic-book style illustrations and short stories. Each issue is fun, challenging, and engaging.  These interrelated  stories follow a series of characters on a journey through life in Minecraft. Relatable characters, thrilling action, and colorful illustrations will suck in readers and leave them excited to read the next adventure! Secrets await! Solve the puzzle, uncover secrets! The Blacksmith and The Apprentice: Issue 1 The ancient art of blacksmithing is a thing of beauty. A lot of hard work goes into the process. It’s very complicated, really. Stoking the flames to many small, contained fires—making lumps of metal into differently shaped items of metal—hitting said lumps of metal with hammers to turn them into different weapons. You can shape metals into whatever item you want. Okay, it might not be a very interesting job, but apprenticing with the best blacksmith in the kingdom is a huge opportunity. Blacksmiths make the tools everyone needs to get about in their day-to-day lives. It’s a very prestigious and impressive position, although this honor is lost when the position is held by Dane, a youthful boy who dreams of greater adventure! Luckily, Dane has a skilled master to reign in his daydreaming. Viegar has quite an interesting past. From his years on the Royal Guard to his close relationship with the previous king, he’s quite a friend to have on your side. There is one other apprentice, Snip, who is much more passionate about his duties than Dane. Between the three of them, they churn out powerful weapons and protective armor, usually with no thanks to Dane. Of course, no cast of characters would be complete without the big man in charge—in this case, a king. By almost anyone’s account, he’s a good and fair ruler, but there is no one in power without enemies. Though Viegar and his workers only want to help their wonderful king, there are still plenty who wish to do him harm. But Dane can only imagine such things. It’s not as if he’d ever be in the position to really make any sort of difference or be in any place of power. Right? And though his apprenticeship is mundane and boring, the young man gets a few moments of excitement. Every once in a while, his master Viegar lets him venture out past the village to visit the caravan, where he can trade and buy supplies. It’s the most excitement Dane ever gets in his line of work. Sometimes, he gets to meet interesting people. Sometimes, he hears interesting things. And maybe, just maybe, he sometimes hears of a new opportunity for himself. But who would want to give up such a life as an esteemed apprentice? But of course, destiny and desire are not always what you expect . . .

Bridget Foley’s Diary: What’s Next for Lanvin?

Can Lanvin make a comeback? That is front-and-center among the many questions swirling around what should prove a fascinating spring 2018 season. While fashion’s current revolving-door mode has set up numerous designer debuts, including those of Clare Waight Keller at Givenchy and Natacha Ramsay-Levi at Chloé, curiosity surrounding the house founded by Jeanne Lanvin in 1889 is unique for two reasons: First, its current fashion identity as perceived by the majority of the fashion-buying population is defined by the work of Alber Elbaz rather than by any concept of its founder; and second, what, from the outside looking in, appears to be a business-side philosophy and infrastructure not intrinsically supportive of the creative process and perhaps lacking a baseline pragmatism.
Given those two issues, is it possible for Lanvin to regain its not-so-long-ago luster? It is, but it won’t be easy. To the first point, exchanges with several retailers revealed a unanimous thought: There remains a customer who still craves the work of Alber Elbaz, and is currently underserved by luxury market alternatives.
Incoming creative director Olivier Lapidus arrived with high hopes and enthusiasm for his new role. In a conversation with my colleague Joelle Diderich, he professed no knowledge of the

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Azzedine Alaïa at Barneys: Happy 35th

“You do not give Monsieur Alaïa parameters!”
So exclaimed Barneys New York chief executive officer Daniella Vitale, referring to the exclusive capsule collection Azzedine Alaïa designed for the store in celebration of his long and fruitful presence there — now 35 years and counting.
The collection consists of eight dresses, some inspired by — though not replicas of — looks sold at the store through the years. It debuts at all Barneys doors on Friday and will be heralded with windows at both New York locations — Madison Avenue and downtown — and the Wilshire Boulevard store in Beverly Hills, as well as with in-store “World of Alaïa” vignettes.
Vitale’s proclamation came in response to something of a rhetorical question: Did Alaïa have carte blanche or did you give him parameters? Yet the gusto with which she answered did more than just amuse. It spoke to the core of Alaïa’s long-term staying power, both at Barneys and in general. Alaïa is a genuine creator, famously uncompromising in his adherence to his specific, highly refined aesthetic and disinterested in diluting the message so as to appeal to a broader audience — a position he has maintained through his current partnership with Compagnie Financière Richemont, which obtained a stake in Alaïa’s

The Diary of a Young Girl

Anne Frank

Genre: Classics

Publish Date: May 18, 2015

Publisher: Hrivik Publishing

Seller: Hrivik Publishing


Discovered in the attic in which she spent the last years of her life, Anne Frank's remarkable diary has since become a world classic—a powerful reminder of the horrors of war and an eloquent testament to the human spirit. In 1942, with Nazis occupying Holland, a thirteen-year-old Jewish girl and her family fled their home in Amsterdam and went into hiding. For the next two years, until their whereabouts were betrayed to the Gestapo, they and another family lived cloistered in the “Secret Annexe” of an old office building. Quotes from the book: “It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.” “I don't think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains.” “No one has ever become poor by giving.” Readers' reviews: “I recommend it highly, especially to young people who may not appreciate , or who may have thought their situation is oppressive.” (Groovin’ guy, goodreads.com) “Read this book!” (B. Murphy, goodreads.com) “Beautiful, haunting, heartbreaking, funny…there are so many words and ways to describe this diary written by an incredible young woman.” (MrsL, goodreads.com)

Lily Aldridge’s Turks and Caicos Travel Diary

Lily Aldridge takes Vogue.com along as she escapes to Turks and Caicos with her family for some beachside R&R.

It was my daughter Dixie’s first beach vacation, and nothing is better than the waters at Turks and Caicos. It’s warm and still and you can see the fish swimming past your toes. She absolutely loved it.

You need your passport to visit Turks and Caicos. It’s such a short flight that it’s easy to forget.

I would put my daughter down for a nap every day after lunch—the hotel has a health-food menu that is delicious, but they have good old-fashioned hamburgers and shepherd’s pie too—and nestle into the beach hammock and read. It was hidden away under some trees right next to the ocean.

We had a pool in our villa at Parrot Cay and I would wake up and dive in! Dixie had taken swimming lessons this summer, so she absolutely loved it.

I was reading All the Light We Cannot See. It was about a German boy and a young French girl during World War II and was one of the best books I’ve ever read. I highly recommend it!

My mom bought Dixie this kite for her third birthday before we had even planned this trip. When we were packing I saw it in my daughter’s room and threw it in the suitcase. I’m so glad I did, because it was really fun to see my husband and daughter running up and down the beach with it.

My official cocktail on the vacation was muddled lemons, strawberries, and mint with soda water and a splash of Patrón Silver. It was the perfect beach drink.

Dixie is such a pro flier! We play games on the plane, and she loves looking out the windows. In this picture we were getting close to landing and she was seeing the crystal-clear water for the first time. It was very exciting!

From the Diary of a Strong Woman

I just got off the phone with an old friend and it seems as if our conversation and some others I’ve had recently confirm the same thing. And just the thought of it infuriates me.

Oddly enough, it’s not from a place of bitterness…or maybe it is. I’m not entirely sure. I do know one thing though – I’m tired. I’m tired of the bad rep strong people get. They are not heartless, illogical, unintelligent beings.

It takes a strong person to break off relationships that they know are poisoning them even when they’ll be judged and criticized for it.

It takes a strong person to give up stability for pursuing their dreams and purpose.

It takes a strong person to smile and tell you everything is “ok” when they really want to share the ugly truth.

It takes a strong person to ignore haters, whether they come in the form of friend or foe.

It takes a strong person to keep living and keep going despite crippling failure.

It takes a strong person to say, “You know what, I know my worth and it’s not this.” And then walk away without having any certainty of the future.

It takes a strong person to give from their heart and then be told that they aren’t giving enough.

It takes a strong person to stand in the face of vicious rumors and make no apologies for who they are.

I could go and on but the point is that frankly, I don’t think strong people get the support or praise they’re due.

I’ve seen strong women called a bi*** just because they stand their ground, set boundaries and refuse to be run over. I’ve seen strong men raked over the coals because they don’t fall into the category of the ideal man from a romantic movie. And don’t even get me started on the strong people who are always the shoulder to lean on during rough times but are completely forgotten when things are better. I’m telling you, it’s truly amazing.

It’s amazing how each of these strong individuals has such moving stories of their own. Some are moms who have survived a physical abusive relationship. Some are men who have seen their fathers unapologetically disrespect women. Some are friends who are always there for everyone in their times of need. Some are the local entrepreneur who keeps pursuing a dream when the bank account balance doesn’t add up.

Technically, there is no “face” of a strong person but I do know this – strong people do a lot of things that require great sacrifice and there are many precursors to their success that no one knows about. And despite the way that society bypasses these individuals, I hope that they hold their head high and say,

“Guess what? I am strong because I know the battles I’ve fought and the hurdles I’ve overcome.”

In fact, I have no problem saying that. I am a strong woman and I make no apologies to anyone.

Bridget Foley’s Diary: At Balenciaga, the Who’s Next Watch Begins

Designer departs from storied house. Hasn’t Kering been there and done that recently, when it replaced Gucci’s Frida Giannini with Alessandro Michele? Yet here we go again, with Alexander Wang leaving Balenciaga after what seems like a truncated stay, despite completion of his three-year contract.
Whatever the reasons behind the split, it’s safe to assume that if both sides had been delighted with the relationship, they’d have found a way to continue on despite Wang’s understandable interest in building his own brand and seeking the revenue with which to do so. (WWD reported this week that he’s close to signing a deal with General Atlantic, the growth equity firm headed by William Ford.)
Wang is now on to the rest of his life and career, an extremely talented and still-young designer. He got a bit of a raw deal from the moment the ink was dry on his Balenciaga contract, not from Kering but from the legions of onlookers who opined about the gravitas of the house codes and whether a guy with a youth-oriented, street-centric aesthetic could rise to the occasion. Suddenly, Wang wasn’t a gifted, savvy designer who’d launched his brand within a strata that made sense for his audience,

Kassia Meador’s Surf Diary Is Your Summer Dream

kassia meador summer surf

“It’s that kind of dream of a life that balances surfing, good food, and living simply,” says Kassia Meador over the phone in Los Angeles yesterday. The professional surfer turned wetsuit and surf wax designer is describing what endears the cult beach film Morning of the Earth to her, but she might as well be talking about her own summer. Meador has spent the past few weeks bouncing between breaks in Malibu and Montauk, whiling away the between hours on stretches of golden sand with the lifelong friends she likens to siblings and continuing work on her forthcoming new candle line. “I’ve been on a real high lately,” she admits. Because whether she is bobbing on the horizon with fellow pro surfers Dane Peterson and Jared Mell, enjoying a meditative moment of solitude on the nose of her longboard, cooking fresh vegetables in the Hamptons, or hand-dyeing alpaca sweaters, she is embracing the sense of fun and freedom that drew her to the sport in the first place. “Summer to me is about having those long days in the sun with good people, tiring yourself out [in the waves], sitting around a fire at the end of it telling stories and playing music. Surfing is a big part of that.” Here, she shares a photo diary of her latest adventures and upcoming projects—and don’t be surprised if you get the itch to catch a few waves yourself.

Shy Georgiana Darcy has been content to remain unmarried, living with her brother and his new bride. But Elizabeth and Darcy's fairy-tale love reminds Georgiana daily that she has found no true love of her own. And perhaps never will, for she is convinced the one man she secretly cares for will never love her in return. Georgiana's domineering aunt, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, has determined that Georgiana shall marry, and has a list of eligible bachelors in mind. But which of the suitors are sincere, and which are merely interested in Georgiana's fortune? Georgiana must learn to trust her heart—and rely on her courage—for she also faces the return of the man who could ruin her reputation and spoil a happy ending, just when it finally lies within her grasp. Georgiana Darcy's Diary is Book 1 of the Pride and Prejudice Chronicles and is appropriate for all ages.

Bridget Foley’s Diary: CFDA, NYFW and the B-word

Blink and it will be August. That means that New York Fashion Week is right around the corner.
In anticipation, earlier this month the Council of Fashion Designers of America unveiled its new fashion week logo, the result, Steven Kolb told my colleague Lisa Lockwood, “of the process of creating New York Fashion Week as a brand.”
The B-word. Is there no fashion entity immune to its lure? What does it mean, to create NYFW as a brand? Is it necessary? Should the organizers of NYFW have, as a stated goal, even a secondary one, to promote the week as an entity?
If yes, might such promotion trump promotion of most of the 350 or so brands showing under its umbrella?
Launched as a trade organization for the purpose of advancing the interests of its members individually and American fashion as a whole, the CFDA retains that purpose, as articulated in its mission statement: “To strengthen the influence and success of American fashion designers in the global economy.” Along the way the CFDA itself became a brand, not accidentally but with systematic and voracious attention to promoting itself as an organization. That’s fine; most trade organizations promote themselves as entities separate and apart from

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Lady Ambassadors

My daughter moved from her native New York to Los Angeles not knowing how to drive. The intelligence therein aside, driving didn’t come easily. Fearful of having to ditch the comedy-writing dream and move home, defeated by driving (she failed the road test twice) she happened upon the now (sadly) defunct Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy and passed the test soon thereafter. During one early-morning lesson, Grainne marveled to her instructor Russ about his professionalism compared with that of her previous instructor. “We have to be professional,” said Russ. “We’re brand ambassadors.”
Brand ambassador. I first heard the handle, or at least it first resonated, years ago when W ran a story on a band of Italian socialites recruited by Giorgio Armani. I found it hilarious — the silliest, best nonjob in the world. A decade-plus later the term resides firmly within the professional lexicon as legitimately as any job title, particularly at the luxury sector, as the response from the Mercedes instructor suggests.
Official brand ambassadors are all around us, utilized nowhere with greater resonance than at Dior, which recently welcomed a newcomer into its fold. With the launch of her “Secret Garden” video, Rihanna joins Marion Cotillard and Jennifer Lawrence touting Dior

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Parting Company

The tennis club on Fire Island matched opponents according to skill. One day many years ago, after most pairings were set, two women remained on the bleachers. They introduced themselves one to the other as Donna and Patti, clueless at the time that their names would, among a limited circle, become linked as indelibly as any great pair — Lewis and Clark, Abbott and Costello, Bert and Ernie. After years of friendship, Patti Cohen would go to work for Donna on May 16, 1983, and (save for a four-month hiatus midway through), leave exactly 32 years later, her last official day Friday, May 15, 2015.
The tennis ladies talked a bit before hitting the court. Later, Patti discussed her day with houseguests, including her woeful tennis loss to a long-armed woman named Donna Karan. “Don’t you know who that is?” exclaimed a friend whose mother had a fashion store in Baldwin. “She designs Anne Klein!” Patti didn’t. The next week Donna was a tennis no-show, but returned the following week with an explanation. She and her partner Louis Dell’Olio had gone to Bloomingdale’s to meet the Queen. Yes, that Queen. They took the subway — doubly pragmatic: it stops at Bloomie’s,

The Teenage Diary — The Original Blog

There are so many reasons I feel lucky to have grown up in the low-tech generation that was the late ’70s/early ’80s.

I love the fact that my music came from vinyl and cassette tapes and that the only thing I was able to do on my telephone was talk on it.

And blogging was done the old-fashioned way, handwritten in one of these relics:

2015-05-18-1431972749-17570-Diaries80s.JPG

I was a little fanatical about writing in my diary. I got my first (and still my favorite) Hello Kitty Friendly Diary when I was 7, and I talked to it like it was a person. A friend. A confidant.

But it’s the books from my pre-teen/teenage years that tell the best (and worst) stories — love, lust, passion, fashion, music… it’s all there in these volumes.

The books are like little time capsules; open them up and find much more than you ever could from staring at a computer screen. Feel the pages and feel the love (and angst) of childhood.

Here are five reasons I am so grateful that I never pitched these precious books.

1. Handwriting
Childhood scrawl and my big, bubbly handwriting take me screaming back to high school.

2. The Occasional Collage
Jason should feel pretty special that I’ve hung onto this homage to him since 1987.

2015-05-18-1431973008-727131-Collage1.JPG

3. Mementos
Matchbooks, ticket stubs, napkins, notes and photos are all stuffed within these pages.

2015-05-18-1431974306-5119679-Diarystuff.JPG

4. Song Lyrics
I painstakingly wrote out the lyrics to a Richard Marx song — what is more dramatic than that? NOTHING.

2015-05-18-1431974234-9675386-RichardMarx.JPG

5. What I Wore
The outfits! Day after day of all the the outfits!

2015-05-18-1431976137-1653855-whatiwore.JPG
2015-05-18-1431976881-1054106-whatiwore2.jpg
2015-05-18-1431976190-8592960-whatiwore3.JPG

These are the books of my life. From the mundane, like “today in class we had a “subatoot,” to the major “today we are moving, they are coming to take everything away and I don’t want to be here and Brian asked me to marry him.”

I did not marry Brian.

We were 17 years old.

In retrospect, it was all very sweet.

It’s all there in these pages. If there was a fire, yes, I would grab these.

As I get older, I want to continue to turn the pages, to touch the napkin from my prom night and get all nostalgic.

I want to show the R.E.M. ticket stub to my children and tell them how it was one of the best shows I ever saw and show them the entry where Mom took me out to brunch so we could talk because she knew I was struggling in school and in life. I want to smile, wince, laugh and cry as I remember who I was.

Lori’s website, Drawn to the ’80s, is where her 5-year-old draws the music hits of the 1980’s. Her blog, Once Upon a Product, is where she writes about food, the ’80s, beauty products and her Mick Jagger obsession.

Photo Travel Diary of a Sustainable Designer

2015-04-01-1427926861-4256986-IMG_8938.jpg

Sustainable designer Laura Siegel shares her journey in becoming conscientious about clothing from backpacking all over the world and finding that the best talent and inspiration lies within each unique destination. Check out some of her personal photos of India.

When did you decide to become a sustainable clothing designer?
After I completed the BFA Fashion program at Parsons, I took some time and backpacked through India and Southeast Asia. It was through these travels that I encountered artisans who have been practicing ancient crafts that have been passed down through generations. With almost every artisan and all the locals I encountered, I did not speak their language, and they didn’t speak mine. So it was through the craft that we communicated.

2015-04-01-1427896867-9680122-sasa04912.jpg

That’s so cool you backpacked and returned with a sustainable start up idea that’s sending a super powerful message. Where did you get the idea to work with two families on your collection?

I decided to start working with Namori’s family for several reasons. For one, he [ the leader of the household] is an extremely talented and skilled weaver. He was looking for work.. So far, by working with him, we have seen really great results and growth for his family and other weavers (ie. that he has began to employ due to the increased workload he has began to receive!)

2015-04-01-1427896813-9408250-WomanembroideringforleisureinBangladesh.JPG

Where are your weavers located? Have you picked up any weaving techniques?
I work with weavers in Kutch and eastern India, as well as Bolivia. The more time I spend with each artisan, the more I’m able to immerse myself in their craft. Though I must admit, the craftsmanship and skill of the weavers are far beyond anything I could ever do myself. It’s something that they’ve inherited from their lineage, something they’ve grown up learning. It’s such an important part of their heritage.
Aside from weavers, I get to work with artisans from all around the world, ranging from Kenya, Laos, Bolivia, Peru and India.

2015-04-01-1427927165-7715967-preppingweftforhandweaving.jpg

What’s the material process like, are they working with material they are already familiar with?
A lot of women throw out sarees (that they buy in the market for cheap). We then take these materials, which are often synthetic, and repurpose them by putting them through a labour-intensive process to turn them into something completely new. While the repurposed material we work with is inexpensive, the labour that goes into converting them into a new textile, into a well-crafted fabric, makes it worth something much more than when we found it.

2015-04-01-1427897272-200141-IMG_86791.jpg
Interesting! What’s your design process like?

I tend to first look at the skills of the artisans I work with, combined with what fibres can be locally sourced (meaning, local in relation to the artisan). So it’s really the resources that are around that I try to work with.

I spend a lot of time with each community, and each individual artisan, developing the textiles and colours for the season, and learning new techniques. I then collect and look at all the fabrics from all the communities involved in the season, before engineering the design layouts and garment shapes.

2015-04-01-1427897313-5538292-IMG_8758.jpg

You mentioned that it’s difficult for you to follow a plant-based/sustainable lifestyle? For one, I’ll give you credit for the recycled paper used for your collection look book-very chic! Tell me about your plant-based ethos?
It’s difficult to fully realize how anyone’s lifestyle really affects our world. Or rather, when not all information is made 100 percent transparent to consumers, it’s tough to make informed decisions. It really requires a lot of research, time and dedication to source the products that do provide that information. The food we eat, the clothes we wear… everything has a story behind it. No matter what it is, everything we buy a journey it’s been through to the consumer. And to be a responsible consumer, you really need to think about that journey — the lives that have been affected in the making of this product, the environmental impact of it all. More products need to have this transparency. You want to feel like you are voting with every dollar, and it is hard to do that when the information isn’t there.

If you could wear a few pieces from the line like everyday, what would you choose? I really like the knitwear for festival season!
You’re right! I would probably chose a fringe sweater, harem pants and kaftan.

2015-04-01-1427927131-1816964-breakfastonthelake.JPG

Okay, last question (since I’m obsessed with adventurous traveling), what are your must-have items when backpacking through Europe?
Kaftan, Belt, Film camera ( with/ Film), Sketchbook/notebook (plus microns-my pen of choice), Flashlight, A map of beaches and fruit farms, Only 1 pair of shoes (most likely a form of sandal), My MEC Backpack (it’s the Canadian in me- I’ve had it for 8 years and it’s going no where).

Makeup Artist Pat McGrath’s Insta-Beauty Diary: A Look Back at the Fall 2015 Shows

Pat McGrath Owen Wilson Ben Stiller Zoolander Valentino

“The return of makeup, from zero to full throttle,” is how backstage whiz Pat McGrath described the message of the fall 2015 collections in New York City, Milan, and Paris. “Things ranged from pure untouched skin to the bravest, most individualistic interpretation of beauty you can imagine.” For McGrath, who documented each look on her Instagram account (@patmcgrathreal) for her legions of faithful fans, that meant conjuring anything from tough-edged kohl eyes (Louis Vuitton) and pristine complexions (Valentino) to stained red lips (Bottega Veneta) and dramatically painted faces (Maison Margiela). Through it all, she says, there was one common theme of the season: “It was about character, bringing the face to life, capturing the personality of the girl.”

For many, the exquisite facial jewelry McGrath created for designer Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy—eyelashes dropping with pearls, suspended ruby teardrops, and glittering septum rings—crystallized the concept, becoming a runway highlight of the season. Although, according to McGrath, one backstage moment also ranked high on her list: the selfie she snapped with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson backstage at Valentino, where the actors made their much-documented Zoolander cameo. Here, a look back at her best Fashion Week beauty moments, which promise to offer fresh makeup inspiration as soon as this weekend.

Chanel Iman of Dope Gives an Off-Duty Photo Diary Tour of the Sundance Film Festival

Chanel Iman’s itinerary may span from New York to Paris during the hustle and bustle of Fashion Week, but this time, the model’s whistlestop tour took her on a snow-sprinkled adventure in Park City to kick off the Sundance Film Festival for her movie, Dope. In the much-buzzed-about film, set in the streets of Inglewood, California, Iman joins a fashion-studded cast that includes A$ AP Rocky and Zoë Kravitz. A true street style star knows how to translate an urban, off-duty look for the slopes. Here, from press day to the premiere, see Iman’s asphalt spin on her ski-city wardrobe for her big screen splash.

A tampon string hangs from her vagina as James fucks her asshole! In Danas living room, she and sensually pervy brunette Adriana Chechik tell porn stories like guys, bitching about wining and dining girls and then getting no sex. Dana stuffs a toy hand up Adrianas lubed anus. At a luxury beach hotel, Dana and young stud Tyler Nixon are visibly nervous till she admits to jerking off to his pics. They make love all over the suite and on the balcony as the waves roar. Dana visits James place for morning coffee and sex. They discuss their porn past, sex preferences and weird fantasies as they do it, and after a whispering, gasping fuck, he creams in her coffee. She likes it!

Diary of a Snow Shoveler

December 8: 6:00 PM. It started to snow. The first snow of the season and the wife and I sat for hours by the window watching the huge soft flakes
drift down from heaven. It looked like a Grandma Moses print. So romantic, we felt like newlyweds again. I love snow!

December 9: We woke to a beautiful blanket of crystal-white snow covering every inch of the landscape. What a fantastic sight! Can there be a more
lovely place in the whole world? Moving here was the best idea I’ve ever had. Shoveled for the first time in years and felt like a boy again. I did
both our driveway and the sidewalks. This afternoon the snow plow came along and covered up the sidewalks and closed in the driveway, so I got to
shovel again. What a perfect life.

December 12: The sun has melted all our lovely snow. Such a disappointment. My neighbor tells me not to worry; we’ll definitely have a white
Christmas. No snow on Christmas would be awful! Bob says we’ll have so much by the end of winter that I’ll never want to see snow again. I don’t think
that’s possible. Bob is such a nice man. I’m glad he’s our neighbor.

December 14: Snow, lovely snow! We had 8″ last night. The temperature dropped to -20. The cold makes everything sparkle so. The wind took my breath
away, but I warmed up by shoveling the driveway and sidewalks. This is the life! The snowplow came back this afternoon and buried everything again. I
didn’t realize I would have to do quite this much shoveling, but I’ll certainly get back in shape this way. I wish I wouldn’t huff and puff so.

December 15: 20 inches forecast. Sold my van and bought a 4×4 Explorer. Bought snow tires for the wife’s car and two extra shovels. Stocked the
freezer. The wife wants a wood stove in case the electricity goes out. I think that’s silly. We aren’t in Alaska, after all.

December 16: Ice storm this morning. Fell on my butt on the ice in the driveway putting down salt. Hurt like heck. The wife laughed for an hour, which
I think was very cruel.

December 17: Still way below freezing. Roads are too icy to go anywhere. Electricity was off for five hours. I had to pile the blankets on to stay
warm. Nothing to do but stare at the wife and try not to irritate her. Guess I should’ve bought a wood stove, but I won’t admit it to her. I hate it
when she’s right. I can’t believe I’m freezing to death in my own living room.

December 20: Electricity’s back on, but we had another 14″ of the stuff last night. More shoveling. Took all day. Snowplow came by twice. Tried to
find a neighbor kid to shovel, but they said they’re too busy playing hockey. I think they’re lying. Called the only hardware store around to see
about buying a snow blower and they’re out. Might have another shipment in March. I think they’re lying. Bob says I have to shovel or the city will
have it done and bill me. I think he’s lying.

December 22: Bob was right about a white Christmas because 13 more inches of the white stuff fell today, and it’s so cold it probably won’t melt till
August. Took me 45 minutes to get all dressed up to go out to shovel and then I had to pee. By the time I got undressed, peed, and dressed again, I
was too tired to shovel. Tried to hire Bob, who has a plow on his truck for the rest of the winter, but he says he’s too busy. I think he’s is
lying.

December 23: Only 2″ of snow today. And it warmed up to 0. The wife wanted me to decorate the front of the house this morning. What is she … nuts???
Why didn’t she tell me to do that a month ago? She says she did, but I think she’s lying.

December 24: 6.” Snow packed so hard by snowplow, I broke the shovel. Thought I was having a heart attack. If I ever catch that guy who drives that
snowplow, I’ll drag him through the snow by his hair. I know he hides around the corner and waits for me to finish shoveling and then he comes down
the street at a 100 miles an hour and throws snow all over where I’ve just been! Tonight the wife wanted me to sing Christmas carols with her and open
our presents, but I was busy watching for the snowplow.

December 25: Merry Christmas. 20 more inches of the slop tonight. Snowed in. The idea of shoveling makes my blood boil. I hate the snow! Then the
snowplow driver came by asking for a donation and I hit him over the head with my shovel. The wife says I have a bad attitude. I think she’s an idiot.
If I have to watch “It’s a Wonderful Life” one more time, I’m going to kill her.

December 26: Still snowed in. Why did I ever move here? It was all HER idea. She’s really getting on my nerves.

December 27: Temperature dropped to -30 and the pipes froze.

December 28: Warmed up to above -20. Still snowed in. SHE is driving me crazy!!!

December 29: 10 more inches. Bob says I have to shovel the roof or it could cave in. That’s the silliest thing I ever heard. How dumb does he think I
am?

December 30: Roof caved in. The snow plow driver is suing me for a million dollars for the bump on his head. The wife went home to her mother. Another
9″ predicted.

December 31: Set fire to what’s left of the house. No more shoveling.

January 8: I feel so good. I just love those little white pills they keep giving me. Why am I tied to the bed?

Cannes Film Festival Diary 2014

This is an unbelievable year for Canada at the Cannes Film Festival. In addition to our film The Captive by Atom Egoyan, there are two other Canadian films in competition (Maps to the Stars directed by David Cronenberg and Mommy directed by Xavier Dolan). That’s three Canadian films out of just 18 films in the Official Selection. In addition there are several films by Canadians in the sidebar competitions including Stephane Lafleur’s Tu Dors Nicole and of course, Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut Lost River. It’s also a very special year for Atom Egoyan. It’s been 25 years since he first came to Cannes as part of the Director’s Fortnight with Speaking Parts and 20 years since Exotica screened in the Official Competition. The Captive is Atom’s sixth film in competition.

This is my fourth trip to the Cannes Film Festival but this year it’s different. In the past I’ve come here to be part of the Marche du Film, basically a convention of thousands of film producers, distributors, government culture agencies and sales agents, scrambling to meet and sell their projects. Very unglamorous in a very glamorous setting on the French Riviera. Oh, the indignities I’ve had to suffer trying to get into a party! Literally pushing myself through a throng and past security clandestinely because my market pass didn’t quite cut it in the mysterious hierarchy of Cannes. I’m told that having a film screening at the Cannes Film Festival especially in the prestigious Official Selection section of the festival is like sitting at the cool kid’s table and access will magically appear. I look forward to confirming this in the next few days.

I sat with my friend Teri Hart, on air host with TMN, on the plane on the way over. She asked if I was nervous at all and surprisingly I’m not. I’m honored and thrilled to be part of the film but not nervous. As a producer, we are more behind the scenes so we tend not to get as anxious as the director or the stars of the film who are in the forefront and put their creative hearts on their sleeve. It has been a long process making The Captive — we shot the film in February and March 2013 and developed the script and financing for at least three years before that. Getting a film made is a long process but this has been relatively quick I and am grateful to work with a director of Atom’s stature who can “fast-track” a project.

As I mentioned producing is a more behind-the-scenes job. My producing partners, Jennifer Weiss and Simone Urdl and I arrive in Cannes today to confirm all of the logistics of the next few days. I could never have imagined the work that goes into organizing all of this. Friday morning there is a press screening, then a press conference, then meeting with French press. There is a pre-screening cocktail reception sponsored by Chopart, the red carpet, the screening and after-party at Silencio — the Cannes pop-up version of the famous underground (literally) Parisian private members nightclub owned by David Lynch. Then Saturday is another full day of press and events. So not only do all of these events need to be set up and organized but there is the added complication of getting our five movie stars here (along with their agents, managers, publicists, stylists and hair and makeup people) and getting them from event to event. Luckily. we have a great team here to make this happen. So stay tuned in the next few days and I will be sharing all the fun details.
