American Royalty - Matchstick from LA + amazing Brooklyn artist Jeff Scher I give the song an 8 - and the video a 10!


Elie Saab - you're too much.

Spring 2012 Couture - perfectly ethereal pastel sparkles.

Sundance Movie Roundup 2012

Beasts of the Southern Wild - An epic, magical film that has been the buzz of the festival about a girl named Hushpuppy and her courageous attempt to save her family and community in the Louisiana bayou.

Black Rock - I was lucky enough to have been involved in the production of this film (ok, only a little bit, but I'm still repping it hard), and got to attend the premiere here!  My friend Katie Aselton directed and starred in this babe-thriller that was incredibly pleasurable to watch.

A Cadeira do Pai - aka "Father's Chair" is a Brazilian film by Luciano Moura about a boy who runs away on a horse named Lightning, and his father's journey to find him.

Safety Not Guaranteed - This feel-good time-traveling film starring Mark Duplass and Aubrey Plaza is incredibly heart-warming, and will leave you rooting for the underdog like never before.

Teddy Bear - This was the final film I saw and it was the perfect ending to the festival.  This Danish film directed by Mads Matthiesen is a quiet and sincere portrait of a lovable bodybuilder (played to perfection by non-actor Kim Kold) through his attempts to grow up (at age 38) and find love.

There were so many more films that I would have loved to have seen, and am particularly bummed I didn't see any documentaries, since I tend to love docs more than narratives.  The documentaries that looked most interesting were Queen of Versailles, About Face, and Detropia - but I'd say this was a pretty full week of movie-watching!


Sundance 2012

In Park City, Utah for the week of festivities that surround Sundance, enjoying great movies, meeting talented people and playing in the snow.  More to come on some fabulous films!


Auguste Rodin

Grés-inspired Gown

1930s French couture has always stood out in my mind as quintessential for impeccable tailoring, exquisite craftsmanship and use of the best materials.  In April 2011, I happened upon an exhibit at the Musée Bourdelle in Paris of designer Madame Grés where I became convinced that my wedding dress was to be inspired by this era, and by Grés's designs.  But I couldn't find any contemporary designers doing dresses like these within my budget.  So I met with a seamstress here in LA and it looks like we are just going to create it ourselves!  
I can't wait to see what we come up with...
