Hail Victoria

March 30th, 2013

Why is it that the rest of us look frumpy and dumpy when we arrive at an airport, and Victoria Beckham has on the very best in pajama dressing. Have no idea how the photogs know they are coming, but someone sent me this shot of the divine VB. She so happens to be wearing shoes by Casadei at LAX on March 28 it is the the iconic “Blade” pump in tan leather with black trim.

Michelle Williams Wears Urbanears

March 22nd, 2013

DownloadedFileFirst of all, Michelle Williams does her own shopping, unlike George Bush Sr. when he was in office. And how does she tune out the world?

Beyonce as Mrs. Carter for H&M

March 21st, 2013

In the eternal debate whether fashion companies should use supermodels or celebrities, Beyonce just put an end to the argument. H&M must have paid a packet to get B to shill their short shorts, but here she is in an ad for their summer line and she has put Gisele, Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford, Daria, Magdalena and all the new models to shame. The ad not only promotes her Mrs. Carter tour, but even makes me want to run over to H&M to shop. WOW!Beyonce Summer H&M

Shaq Attacks Bucatini Carbonara

March 20th, 2013

Dateline Ft. Lauderdale: Shaquille O’Neal’s table at Cafe Martorano basically ordered the left side of the menu. . . fried chicken, Philly cheese steak, bucatini carbonara, veal Sinatra, and red velvet cake. Meanwhile Olympic eater Michael Phelps and famed electro-house music spinner DJ Steve Aoiki (table for 15!) downed shrimp scampi, Linguine and clams, NY strip streak, and chocolate cake. Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte also recently hit the big boite. Both Shaq and Phelps tried the popular meatball recipe of owner Steve Martorano (he’s in the group shot). I must be the last to notice Shaq’s sleeve–that’s a lot of tat!Steve Aoki, Steve Martorano, Michael Phelps and Shaq at Cafe Martorano

Alessandra Ambrosio And Cute Pooch

March 20th, 2013

1174I’m melting. . . . Alessandra Ambrosio sure makes the Mattel “Save Bunny” t-shirt look sexy.  And her pooch is cute, too.  Mattel’s “cause” is to save the Easter Bunny from global warming by, ahem, giving toys instead. Good for kids teeth in any case. . .  Proof that the Victoria Secret supermodel could basically make anything look sensational. ..

      Observer Anniversary Fete Charmed

      March 15th, 2013

      DownloadedFileNew York Observer 25th Anniversary fete tonight was a classic New York soiree at the pool room at the Four Seasons (Restaurant, building Mies Van der Rohe, room Philip Johnson). Donald Trump, Mayor Bloomberg, Katie Holmes and she chatted with press and was really, really fun and nice, and Tom Hooper, Harvey Weinstein, Rupert Murdoch and Wendy Deng, Jay McInerney. I looked over and Donald and Melania were sitting in a corner chatting with Katie Couric. So elegant. And Mr. Trump was telling me how proud he is of this generation taking over the hooplah–Ivanka’s husband Jared Kushner owns Observer. The mayor spoke as if everyone was family. .. it was a room packed with charmed and charming people. Everyone thought that it was a throwback (to a more golden era). Kudos Peggy Siegal. .
