Film Noir Photoshoot!

ArseniaAimeeShootB&W

On Christmas Eve, I stopped in to see my amazing friend and genius hairdresser Arsenia Barias at her salon, Altagracia Unisex. I decided I wanted to try something new for the upcoming year and after watching the film for “Water For Elephants” (one of my favorite books of all time), I was very inspired by Reese Witherspoon’s 1920’s/1930’s chic bob!

Hurricanes, Floods and Power Outages, Oh My!

 

Oh, Sandy! If only you could be as kind and gentle as your Grease counterpart. But no, it seems you are a nasty, relentless beyotch hellbent on wreaking havoc on us poor, unsuspecting East Coasters! Sigh… Continue reading

Just A Girl: Gwen Stefani, Fashionista Fatale!

When I was a teenager in the mid 90’s, there was this awesome music video channel called “The Box”. Unlike MTV, this network charged viewer’s to select a video that they wanted to see. Well, one fateful day in 1995, someone had requested No Doubt’s debut video “Just A Girl” about 25 times in a row. I was completely transfixed on the television. While the song was amazing (and still gives me goosebumps to this day), there was something about that energetic blonde with the pinup perfect hair and unique sense of style that I just could not get enough of. From that moment on, I had become a die-hard “Gwenabee”! Continue reading

Mila Kunis Goes Retro: Miss Dior Fall 2012 Ad Campaign

Following in her “Black Swan” co-star Natalie Portman’s footsteps, Mila Kunis is now the new face of Miss Dior. While her Spring 2012 campaign was beautiful, she really knocked it out of the park with this surprisingly retro look for fall. 

I’ve loved her ever since I saw her for the first time on “That 70’s Show”, (one of my guilty pleasures).  While her character Jackie Burkhart was a spoiled, bossy and often times mean-spirited teen, she has since showcased her acting versatility in major motion pictures like “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and  “Friends With Benefits”. Not to mention being the voice of Meg Griffin on Family Guy! 

These amazing black and white  photographs, taken by Mario Sorrenti, depict Ms. Kunis as a glamorous 1950’s starlet being hounded by photographers. She looks oh so chic in her jeweled sweater, pencil skirt and of course her classic crocodile chain link handbag! 

Just gorgeous! Mila, you are pin up perfection 😉

Katy Keene: America’s Queen of Pin-Ups and Fashions

Exactly who is Katy Keene?

That’s what I wondered aloud to myself the first time I saw her comic books next to my usual Archie titles in the newsstand at LaGuardia Airport. I was 7 or 8 years old getting prepped for a family flight down to Florida. She reminded me of Veronica but much more flamboyant and fashionable. I asked my mom and she purchased the book for my in flight entertainment. Sure enough, by the time we landed in sunny Florida I had read that first digest cover to cover and I was hooked. This girl was awesome! Smart, beautiful, kind and spunky! Little did I know she had been around long before I discovered her in the 1980’s. Continue reading
