I Want To Look Like Colin Firth (in a Mr. Porter suit)

6 Dec

Kingsman: The Secret Service, starring the dashingly handsome & foxy Colin Firth, will have a chic line of mens clothes based on the movie. The Matthew Vaughn directed secret-spy film looks like an interesting mix of street and high end mens fashion. The films Costume Designer, Arianne Phillips, worked with Mr. Porter to create dapper & stylish looks inspired by the film that you can buy online. Arianne is the brilliance behind fashion inspired projects from W.E. to Hedwig & The Angry Inch (film & broadway), with a lot of Madonna in between. I eagerly look forward to anything the dreamy Colin Firth does and I really want one of those handsome double breasted suits to look very posh out and about in London fighting crime like Colin.

Madonna’s PopUp Personal Collection @ Macy’s in LA!

23 Apr

I wish I was in LA right now, not only for the margaritas at Marix, or the sun shining down on me as I hike Runyon Canyon, but to see Madonna’s personal costume collection at Macy’s in Century City! There is a short 2 hour pop up show of her outfits this Thursday April 25th from 6-8pm. She apparently chose the pieces with a little help from her stylist/costumer and old friend and boss of mine, Arianne Phillips. This is all to boost and promote the Material Girl collection, which is a pretty brilliant idea if you ask me. Let me know if you go and see the show. I’m sure it will be jammed packed at Century City all day, but it will be worth it if you’re a Madonna devotee (i.e. the gays).

Nom’s for Costume Designers Guild Awards! Trish! Arianne! Lou!

19 Jan

The nominations from the Costume Designers Guild are in and 3 friends are nominated! My girl Trish Summerville is nominated for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (Category: Excellence in Contemporary Film)!!! Woo hoo! Who else could have made Rooney Mara into the deep & dark Lisbeth Salander?! I have to say , she had an awesome crew 😉  Arianne Phillips is nominated for W.E. (Excellence in Period Film). Ari did a magnificent job recreating that elegant fashion period of the super chic 30’s. And Lou Eyrich is nominated for Glee w/ her co-designer Jennifer Eve-who I don’t know but congrats Jennifer (Category: Outstanding Contemporary Television Series)!!! Every episode of Glee is a major event and these 2 ladies have done a superb job making this exhausting task look effortless. Go girls! Thank goodness they are all in separate categories because I did not want a high fashion cat fight to break out! I am really proud of my friends who are all hard working, super dedicated, incredibly talented and most importantly, very loving people that are amazing in every way. I can hardly wait for the plus 1 invitations to roll in…or at least a detailed report of the festivities. Good luck ladies!

watch: W.E./Madonna Video w/ the Amazing Arianne Phillips Costume Designer

18 Jan

I am a big fan of this 30ish vintage fashion that I’m sure will be making a huge comeback. It already is being seen on the runways like in Miu Miu’s Fall 2011 collection and some elements in Dior. My old boss and friend and also the movies costume designer, Arianne Phillips makes her debut in the first scene of the video with M looking at her laptop. By the looks of the clips I’ve seen, Arianne did an amazing job creating this complex and magnificent look for the film. I’m already in love with so many outfits in the film like that vertical zigzag pattern suit…amazers!! Hopefully she will be recognized by the big wigs with an Oscar nomination and win. Arianne  has a few Oscar nominations (Walk the Line & A Single Man) and I hope this will be “the one”. Team Ari! So excited for W.E. to come out! You are a Star Ari!
