Gucci of the Past and Present

A few years ago, then Creative Director of Gucci, Frida Giannini, designed the Jackie Soft shoulder bag which first came out in pink, mustard, and sky blue. I loved the pink version, although it was not a bag that I carried often because I worry about getting it dirty. But each time I take the...

A Quick Paris Fashion Week Roundup

A Quick Paris Fashion Week Roundup

Filming has overtaken my time, along with dinners and work- related meetings so by the time I get home, I am pooped beyond comprehension (it’s age, I tell ya). Tonight though, I had a real strong cup of coffee and my mind is still hyperactive even if my body is already asking for my bed....
"I Do" with Jimmy Choo!

“I Do” with Jimmy Choo!

Years ago while working for a weddings magazine, I remember mentioning to a colleague that it would have been nice if the premium footwear labels came out with custom- made bridal shoes.

Sandra Bullock’s Fashionable Minions

I couldn’t help but gush as soon as I saw the minion- inspired pumps of Sandra Bullock a.k.a. Scarlett Overkill! Do you still remember when Angelina Jolie a.k.a. Maleficent wore those movie- inspired pumps as well? Her Louboutin shoes were cool *and quite badass* back then but Sandra’s Minion pumps have to take the cake...
