A Shah’s Life

Aperlai by Alessandra Lanvin

Aperlai by Alessandra Lanvin

  Alessandra Lanvin is as lovely as the beauty she exudes and the Aperlai bombshells she creates. I had the fortunate opportunity to sit down one-on-one with the Turkish/Italian stunner in Paris which lead to my latest piece for the New York Post Alexa. Read it online here: http://nypost.com/2014/03/18/alessandra-lanvins-stylish-view-from-the-top/ In addition, I have made a selection(…)

Mon Choix

Mon Choix

The top Parisian heads behind L’Officiel Magazine just launched their Latin counterpart – L’Officiel Mexico with their first issue coming out this month.  Not only did I have the pleasure of covering Fashion Week on their behalf, I was also chosen to be featured in their “Le Choix” section.  This has always been one of(…)

Cool Rider

Cool Rider

“If you really want to know,   What I want in a guy… Well, I’m lookin’ for a dream on a mean machine, With hell in his eyes.” Oh how right you are Michelle Pfeiffer. During Haute Couture Fashion week in Paris, just after the Valentino Show, I had a rare second to promenade around the cobblestone(…)

Nausheen Dreams of Sushi

Nausheen Dreams of Sushi

Just over two years ago, my travel editor Andy Wang rang me up and proposed that we check out this new documentary “Jiro Dreams of Sushi.” The film documents the day in, day out of an 85 year old Japanese chef, Jiro Ono, who runs a 3 Michelin starred sushi joint out of the bottom(…)

If it Ain’t Over the Knee…

If it Ain’t Over the Knee…

  … I don’t want to see it. Call it a fad, a minute obsession, a “girl and her shoes” type of infatuation, but honestly I don’t care.  It’s all I want to wrap my “Big Apple” shellac’d toes in at the moment. Over-the-knee boots, in my humble opinion, are a fresh way to accessorize(…)

VOGUE: Bibhu Mohapatra Sketch to Street Style

Couture season is about to kick off in Paris and Fall 2014 Ready to Wear shows begin in T minus 27 days.  So you can imagine that besides for amping up my fashion week travel arrangements as well as gathering fresh pens & notebooks for my reviews, the other lingering thought in my brain is…(…)

Note to Self

Note to Self

It’s one thing to have the honor of being recognized by Street Style photographers and magazines when heading back and forth between shows in New York, London, Milan and Paris – but it is another sense of accomplishment when a magazine, from China nonetheless, asks to feature you among their top stylers at the moment.(…)

St Barthsing a New Year

St Barthsing a New Year

It’s a new day, a new year and a fresh chapter in life. This year I decided to perform my yearly cleansing on the charming island of Saint Barthélemy, St Barths, St Barts… whichever you choose to call it. Surprisingly enough, this was my first time on the island and yes, it proved to live(…)

Blades of Glory

Blades of Glory

My deep rooted sickness of stem acquirement has pitched a fever… and it’s all due to Casadei’s latest signature stomper – the “Blade Heel.” I remember the moment when I walked into Casadei’s Milanese showroom a couple of season’s back just when the first collection of slicing was born.  The second I stepped into the(…)

Dead Man’s Curve

Dead Man’s Curve

It doesn’t happen often, but when it does…. Dead Man’s Curve is the result. Recently I ventured to Los Angeles where I attended the Inaugural Gala of the Wallis Annenberg Center hosted by Salvatore Ferragamo.  I had initially planned a short LA getaway for one of my best friend’s weddings, but instead it turned into(…)
