It’s Cate Blanchett’s birthday! We wanted to wish her a beautiful day. She is one of our favorite actresses and people in the world. She is a great example of a star. She puts her family first, her craft is more important than the hype of hollywood, and she dresses elegantly and fearlessly. Cheers to her!
Nicole Kidman will be playing Grace Kelly in a new biopic. It will show her first year as a princess, as she has left Hollywood behind and embraces her new role. Although Nicole is 45, and Kelly was 32 at the time this movie is set, I still will be front row for the movies premiere (date still to be determined). Nicole is a great actress and will most likely do the roll justice. The web is full of haters, big surprise, but at the end of the day who could really be better? No one comes to mind and in my opinion, no one has a more complete package than Ms. Kidman.
Start your weekend with a little music. I have been loving Thao and the Get Down Stay Down.
I love glamour, I love the twenties, I love sequins, I love glitz, I love Gatsby. Or at least I am pretty sure I’m going to love the motion picture, The Great Gatsby, starring the ever charming Leonardo DiCarprio, the lovely Carey Mulligan and directed by the talented Baz Luhrmann. Will you be getting in line Thu night?
I always love finding new ways to wear scarves. Marc Jacobs gave me another reason to keep those scarves out of my closet and onto my head, neck and waist. Are you adventurous enough to copy this accessory trend?
The black and white trend is still going strong. I especially love these two looks from Marc Jacobs, because it shows the wild side of black and white and a more classic way to mix the two hues. Which do you prefer?
