As we all know, 2017 has been quite the year. But in spite of the constant onslaught of bad news, on the lighter side, there were some memorable red carpets looks. Like I do annually, here’s a look-back at some of the year’s most impressive or talked-about style moments. Celine Dion, Tracee Ellis Ross, Nicole Kidman and (my girl) Cindy Crawford all had a solid style year. Continue reading
My girls are back! By now most of you have seen the photos. Donatella’s brilliant tribute to her brother Gianni during Milan Fashion Week, 20 years after his death, included a finale the fashion world is still buzzing about. Uniting original 1990s supermodels Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Helena Christensen and Carla Bruni, Donatella created one of the best and most memorable fashion moments in years. I still can’t get over it (when I first saw the photos I squealed – loudly). All five legendary models looked as amazing as ever (if not better) and reminded us there’s a good reason why they will forever be credited for term supermodel. Continue reading
After more than 40 years, TIFF has proved to be a major force in terms star power – and style statements. Practically everyone shows up. They all seem to love Toronto. As the importance of the festival continues to skyrocket, so do the memorable fashion moments. Although I didn’t get to see many stars in person (except for Drake), here’s a rundown of some of the most talked about looks. Once again, Nicole Kidman remains the one to watch. That Valentino retro multi-patterned dress was killer. Continue reading
Some years are more exciting than others, and this year’s Emmy red carpet definitely impressed with many memorable looks. For example, as if we don’t be talking about Jane Fonda’s ponytail for years. And I loved seeing so many legendary veteran actresses totally slay it on the red carpet looking better than ever. Along with Fonda, Susan Sarandon, Jessica Lang, Michelle Pfeiffer and Judith Light all stunned and showed their much younger acting counterparts how it’s done. A great dress paired with experience and confidence is hard to beat. Here’s a rundown of some of this year’s most talked about looks.
Claudia Schiffer (one of the original supermodels) lives in a castle. Of course she does. And whenever legendary models and interior design collide, I feel it’s my duty as a design and supermodel-loving fan to cover it. After all, when I was younger, my wonderful dad used to buy me Vogue and Architectural Digest (AD) every month. I’ll never forget the day he came home with the AD issue featuring Cindy Crawford in her impressive Madison Avenue pad in 2001. Now Claudia’s centuries old English countryside Tudor mansion is featured in AD’s special fashion-related September issue. Continue reading
As a life-long jewelry lover (and serious) bracelet fan, I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the launch of the new men’s collection by Dean Davidson. Trust me – it’s going to be HUGE. A celebrated designer, Dean has been designing women’s jewelry for over 10 years. The idea to do a men’s collection has been in planning stages for some time and as you’ll see, it was well worth the wait. Modern, masculine and well formed – this is a jewelry collection stylish guys are going to love. Continue reading
Always one of the best red carpets of the year, the Cannes Film Festival is like no other. The French Riviera is all about excess and this is a place where the stars aren’t afraid to play dress up and are willing to look extra luxurious & extravagant. The only rules at Cannes are that subtlety is not allowed and to always think of Joan Collins (in her Dynasty days) and Elizabeth Taylor as inspiration. Next to the Met Gala, this is the most exciting red carpet of the year. Continue reading
It’s the party that costs $30,000 a ticket and even if you an afford a ticket, that doesn’t mean you can necessarily attend. It’s invitation only and there’s a famously long waiting list – just to get on the invite list. Anna Wintour carefully oversees every detail and has to approve everyone who attends – of course she does. So even if a company buys a table, she still has the final say whether your guests can attend or not. Pretentious, right?! God, I want to go some day… Continue reading
One of the best parts of working for Dean Davidson (a growing Canadian jewelry company), is the chance to work on many cool projects. And one of my favourites is being involved in shooting the new campaigns. It’s fun – and you feel fancy, in a behind-the-scenes kind of way. As Dean’s brand continues to grow, this season’s new campaign was designed to represent the elevation of his brand and how the line, which began in 2007, is entering a new era. Continue reading
I once again had the pleasure of being part of the annual Oscar red carpet recap on CTV Morning Live with three talented and beautiful ladies – host Aisling Tomei, stylist Taylor McDonald and photographer and publicist Aldona Barutowicz. As always, we had blast. There are few things I enjoy more than talking about fancy dresses. Check out the full clip here. Looking forward to next time! And check out my full blog post on many of the most talked about Oscars looks this year.
