The Life of Elizabeth Taylor

Posted on November 25, 2012

Lindsay Lohan will star as Elizabeth Taylor in the upcoming movie “Liz & Dick” on the TV channel Lifetime. When Taylor passed last year, I had never really heard of her until then and when I saw the morning news speaking of her, I decided to look her up. I can now understand why so many people consider her to be an intriguing woman – from her exotic looks, her jewelry collection, her many marriages and for the fact that she is looking at Richard Burton in this photo instead of her newborn child. Many have compared Lohan and Taylor for their similar, chaotic lifestyles. Both were child actresses, both struggled with addiction as well as relationship woes and while I will not tune…

NARS Cosmetics has just released a cosmetic line in honor of Andy Warhol and they are celebrating his life in a beautiful way! I am not much for color when it comes to make-up. However, I think everyone knows that Mr. Warhol’s art left the world a little more colorful so I found this collection to be really fun and appropriate. The cosmetics collection is available for purchase at Sephora as well as on the NARS Comestics website. Here are my favorite picks from the limited-edition collection: Images are via. &

      Hurricane Sandy has impacted the lives of New Yorkers, New Jerseyites, those from Connecticut and others from all over the Northeast. I would also like to take this time to acknowledge those who have been impacted by this Hurricane in Jamaica, Haiti and Cuba as well. After watching the telethon last night which featured Bruce Springsteen, Christina Aguilera, Steven Tyler, etc. I thought that there had to be a way to donate money online as well. I started searching some of my favorite online stores and here’s a list of a few stores who are donating money to the Red Cross in an attempt to aid in disaster relief… If you’re going to spend money, you might as well spend it on…

I have ended my work with Object Collectors Item and will, once more, be focusing on my own work here on YOU ARE WHO YOU WEAR. Despite my not having actively blogged on here for over two years, I still get plenty of “hits” and comments – you all are a delight, thank you! I’ve had such a wonderful few years with Object and I will never forget what a privilege it was to work for a fashion house like Object. Thank you to those of you who presented me with the opportunity. I will truly never forget it. It’s been a hectic few years, folks! I just moved to New York City a few months ago and I am now contemplating a move…

Fall RTW 2010

Posted on March 3, 2010

I firmly believe that Fall/Winter runways are always much more intense and interesting than the Summer/Spring runways. The opportunities that designers have to incorporate layers, heavy colors, dramatic make-up, etc. always allows for a more interesting show. I have chosen the top five Fall RTW 2010 runways. Take a look: I had never heard of Iceberg until today. What fantastic designs! Alfred Hitchcock is the brilliant mind behind these designs. A mix of menswear and voluptuous furs allowed for a youthful, fun runway.  I did not see one ensemble that did not look ready-to-wear. At Iceberg it was all about the length. The checkered blouses were worn with calf-length pencil skirts, long ribbed cardigans were paired with ankle-cropped pants. Men’s shirts were worn suspended…

Forrest and Bob Pt. II

Posted on March 3, 2010

There are certain types of media that can’t really be described. Media that makes you speechless, blush and quite frankly raise your heartbeat just a little bit. This type of media was found in my inbox, just a few days ago. Sent from designers Forrest & Bob, I got a sneak peak  at their new lingerie collection as well as their S/S 2010 collection. The campaign was shot in Los Angeles and features three models and Carlos Leon. For the first time, Forrest & Bob are creating menswear. The Danish designers are well known for their basic tank designs and after having posed the question, “what do I wear underneath these tank tops?” Forrest and Bob offered me the perfect answer. The lingerie featured in…
