Inspired by my sports meeting today, I thought I would share some cool sports faciliy designs from my girl Zaha Hadid. For further information about ZH and all of her “only woman to win the Pritzker Prize” greatness – check out her website where I pulled these photos and project summaries: http://www.zaha-hadid.com/home London Aquatics Center […]Read more "Chicks in sports ROCK!"
The Daily Mail reports today on a controversy over M&S lingerie ad campaign. Folks are saying these images are too racy and (of course) are inappropriate for children. One thing – see the ad here? Imagine that blown up on a billboard. Although I understand that it is incredibly annoying to be reminded on a […]Read more "We boobed…Controversy over M&S Ad Campaign"
About a month ago, the Menil Collection opened a new show — Upside Down : Arctic Realities — and GAD and I decided to visit. I am going to preface this by saying I am not terribly keen on indigenous art and don’t necessarily seek it out unless I am with GAD who adores looking at wooden totems. Additionally, […]Read more "I love wearing booties in the summer…."
Two positive articles I found today about the glamour of getting older. Jane Fonda showed up in an amazing Pucci gown at Cannes this week. Don’t forget, folks, she is 73. Now, Fonda has been very open about how pairing her active lifestyle with plastic surgery has helped her maintain her looks. She thinks that there is no […]Read more "She doesn’t look distinguished — She looks hot!"
Julia Fullerton Batten’s “In Between” photos have been on my mind since 2009 Art Basel. Coming from my dance training in younger years I was reminded of what my teacher told me – the in between moments are more important than the final pose. Highly narrative yet hauntingly minimal, her images suspend us not only between movements […]Read more "“In Between” Julia Fullerton Batten in Madrid"
Just wanted to share this article posted on Daily Mail today. “Thousands of scantily-clad women to march in London as ‘SlutWalk’ protest reaches UK” To sum up — A Canadian police officer walks into a college classroom to discuss health and safety issues. When the topic of rape came up he advised, “You know, I think we’re […]Read more "SlutWalk UK"
I greatly appreciate HBO’s unending compassion. First for vampires, then Jersey Mobsters and now for Lady Gaga. For those of us who did not have the money, patience, or outfit available for Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball tour, we were given a glimpse of her last show at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night in our own […]Read more "Lady Gaga – The Opera?"
Saturday was a perfectly lovely day. I went to yoga. I went to the bookstore where I spent an ungodly amount of money on art magazines. I read – ate lunch – read – took a nap – read and went to the opera. However, I did find myself steeped in urine. Seriously. When I […]Read more "Am I living in Urinetown?"
As tweeted earlier, I am very excited about the new Alexander McQueen exhibit at the Met I was at the American Woman exhibit last year and the Superheroes exhibit in 2008 and I am sure that this show will bring in a whole host of fashionable viewers to the Costume Institute – those that think oohing […]Read more "daphne guinness – a work of art?"
There are two things I learned in Rome today. First, it is colder than I thought. So pleased with myself that I had packed the perfect clothes in my one suitcase, I did not anticipate a drop in temperature – even though I had been watching the weather. What does this mean? I walked around […]Read more "Roma, Day 2"
