ISIS Destroys 3000 Yr Old Artifacts

261DB11500000578-2970270-image-a-1_1424957194042The Dark Ages are almost upon us. It breaks my heart to watch ISIS members take sledge hammers to 3000 yr old artifacts and relics at Mosul Museum in Iraq. What really baffles me is why couldn’t they just gather the collection and sell them to the highest bidders in the Western world since they sometimes hold people at ransom for money over their deaths? Everyone is entitled to their causes but why take it out on stones that can not speak but simply to educate us of a time gone by? As an art lover, my heart feels heavy with sadness to watch an era come to an end –literally.

Brace yourself, the video footage below is disturbing.

Mirror, Mirror On The Wall…Oscar 2015 Disasters!

Julianne Moore & Eddie Redmayne

The Oscars as usual brings out the glam and the glum of Hollywood and last night was no different. As expected, both of my favorites took home the golden dudes. It’s long overdue for such talents as Julianne Moore to score one and a fairly newcomer Eddie Redmayne also took home the top acting honor. Their respective performances in their roles moved me to tears at the theaters.

Ok, now on to the fashion. Everyone looked razzle dazzle and I applaud. But I must be honest. How many more times is JLO going to play the deep plunging V necklines on red carpets? YAWN….I quite prefer the number she wore to the Vanity Fair Oscar afterparty. Perhaps it’s time her glam team start revising their formula or risk more faux pas like what happened last night when Robert Duvall’s wife was seen waltzing the red carpet in similar garb as JLO. And again looked like the one on Katie Cassidy on the red carpet!!! OY!

Lady Gaga had a fair share of risk appearing in what looked like she was wearing a full apron and gloves to scrub off some dead bodies in the bathtub. And Lupita’s Calvin Klein dress must weigh a ton with all of those 6000 faux pearls sewn on her little frame. Scarlett Johansson overkilled her Versace gown with the necklace. Chrissy Teigen bared too much chest and legs at the same time, over done. While many others need to fire their stylists, Zoe Kravitz needs to hire one fast!

The only outfit that really had me salivating? Well, Rosamund Pike of Gone Girl. Overall, Elie Saab, Zuhair Murad and Givenchy killed it with Oscar gowns this year!

Well, there’s always next year. Now back to work!

Cinderella Like No Other!

Cinderella_2015_official_poster I just got back from a private screening of Cinderella movie. Gotta to say it’s the MOST well produced and well acted movie of all Cinderella movies I have ever seen! So emotional, realistic and convincing! 2 thumps up for Game of Thrones actor playing the Prince and 2 actresses from Downtown Abbey playing Cinderella and one as the step sister. And you can expect nothing but the best from Cate Blanchett as the wicked step mother. She NAILED IT! Oh the fashion, to die for!

It’s a must see for all adults and kids alike. I might be seeing it again when it hits theaters on March 13. Did I mention the glass shoes? Very unique. A must!

Kanye West Promises A Fan His Sneakers!

Screen Shot 2015-02-09 at 7.51.24 PMIt’s not everyday you get to hear Kanye West down play Nike high top sneakers to promote his own line of sneakers to admiring fans who just happened to be at the airport. One lucky fan could very well get a brand new pair of sneakers from the hit maker if he keeps his words. Watch the video footage to witness Yeezus make a fan’s dream come true. Gotta say, that’s mighty sweet of him.

Daring & Gasping Moments At The Grammys

The Grammy awards brings out the naughtiest and fashionably daring moments in the music biz. The images below say plenty without me having to yap too much about nothing here. Some even left me gasping for air (thanks Madonna), while others had me wondering why in God’s name they gave their stylist a day off on a big night like this one. Sigh…I suppose it can happen to the best of us.

Alas, I must say kudos to such risk takers like Rihanna for trying something new and daring for the red carpet in an enormous pink tulle dress by Giambattista Valli. My hats off to her.
