Day to Night with AX

Day to Night with AX

It is somewhat of a bizarre feeling. Usually I am the one behind the scenes, prepared with a full belt of styling tools to make sure the model or artist looks flawless.  Or I am the one giving an interview, taking notes and making sure I capture the designer’s personality and emotion to the utmost degree.(…)

Aperlai: New York Post

Aperlai: New York Post

  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(…)

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…(…)

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(…)

Jean Paul Gaultier et Moi

Jean Paul Gaultier et Moi

Since I was a budding teenager, one of the first fashion designers I ever gravitated towards was Jean Paul Gaultier. Besides for the fact that I have been wearing his ‘Classique’ fragrance since the age of 18 (and yes I still wear it now), his aesthetic has always felt like an adrenaline pump, rushing the(…)

Shine Bright Like a Diamond

Recognized most recently in the fashion world from her collaboration with Louis Vuitton, Yayoi Kusama is now presenting her latest exhibition “I Who Have Arrived in Heaven” at the David Zwirner Gallery in Chelsea, New York through(…)

Beet it Down

Beet it Down

Initially you may have thought I was yet another rampling off about The Great Gatsby and 1920′s style.  But in fact, this picture was snapped in March during Paris Fashion Week and I was having a time-warped moment.  It wasn’t until I saw the pictures that I realized how 1920′s my garb appeared. The main point I(…)
