Kanye West Shows @ Paris Fashion Week

2 Oct

The West man went East – but not for a concert.

Kanye West landed in Paris not as his rapper self, but as a fashion designer. His much anticipated fashion line finally hit the Parisian runway last night.

I personally feel like the 23 pcs shown were rather confusing – is this his AW or SS line? (Psssssst its SS12 Kanye) The use of leather and fur definitely threw me off season-wise. I must admit I’ll only be buying his albums for now. I think he needs a few more seasons before he can enter my closet!

Truly A MUST Watch Documentary

28 Sep

My husband often spoke about his excitement that Universal Pictures was making a movie/documentary on Aryton Senna, a Brazilian Formula 1 three-time world champion who died at the age of 34. I’m going to be honest and say that a) I did not share his excitement and b) Aryt— who? How do you pronounce his name again?

Well let me tell you one thing – after watching this documentary I felt like I had slept through 1994.  Given I was only 10 years old at the time, I cannot believe that until I watched this I had no idea who Aryton Senna was.

You don’t have to like Formula 1 to watch it. This documentary is an intense look at a remarkable F1 champion’s life seen through (never before seen) real footage. He is seen as strong, articulate, and fearless but you’ll also catch a glimpse of how  sensitive  and vulnerable he was. It is filled with high emotion and real intensity.

“Senna” broke the record for the highest grossing opening weekend documentary film in British cinema history.

Why, cuz Gywneth Paltrow says so!

28 Sep

I’m a fan of goop.com a website created by Gwyneth Paltrow. She started this website because of how often her friends would ask for recommendations. She lists her favorite hotels she’s stayed in, restaurants she’s eaten at, and stores she’s been to. F-U-N!

So since I had a London trip coming up I thought to myself well why not try one of her recommendations!

I chose the River Cafe. Aside from its lovely location which overlooks the Thames river, the food and the ambiance was divine!

A visit to Lucy in Disguise

27 Sep

Lucy in Disguise is a vintage store owned by famed Lily Allen and her younger sister. First of all can I just mention how STRIKINGLY COOL their shop front is. You can literally spot the gold glitter a mile away!

Walking into the store I was surprised with how organized the store looked. It didn’t have that typical London vintage store feel to it – nor smell at that matter. I started going thru the clothes and quickly realized, this isn’t your everyday vintage store – this is high-fashion-couture vintage! HELLO! CHANEL. DIOR. YVES SAINT LAURENT.  In between my gasps I managed to speak with the store manager who basically told me that Lilly Allen and her good friend Karl Lagerfeld (oooh laa laa) travel the world to scout for these pieces from different collectors. And because of how rare the pieces are, some are on a rental only basis.
