Vicki Iovine Interviews With Marta Walsh

Vicki Iovine is now facing her own new horizons as a recently divorced mother of four after 27 years of marriage. As Vicki embarks on a journey that she’s coined her “next 27 years,” she plans to not only continue sharing kindness with others, but also taking the time to be kind to herself. With this commitment to spreading kindness and giving back, Vicki is thrilled to be an ambassador for the My Expressions of Kindness campaign.

Through a quarter of a million dollar donation from Allergan, Inc., the maker of BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA), the campaign benefits three deserving charities, including Dress for Success, an organization with a mission that’s very close to Vicki’s heart: providing women with the tools they need to succeed. Allergan will make a $25 donation on behalf of each consumer who shares their acts of kindness online.

NARS Q&A With Daphne Guinness

Celebrity Inspired Makeup. NARS Q&A With Daphne Guinness!

When it comes to describing fashionista Daphne Guinness, the passion of Founder & Creative Director François Nars knows no boundaries. And when it came to designing and photographing this futuristic makeup look for Fall 2010, François created a look worthy of his leading lady. It was only fitting that Nars chose to name an eyeshadow after his muse, Daphne, a color that is as bold and beautiful as the woman for whom it was named. To magnify the arresting impact of the magnificent Ms. Guinness, Nars designed and photographed her in a kaleidoscope of mirrors, creating a virtual funhouse of reflective images.

Alber Elbaz About Lanvin Winter 2010 Collection

Alber Elbaz is one man that inspires me greatly. He’s designs for Lanvin’s fashion house are bigger than life, exquisite, a work of art. I stumbled upon this video and thought to share: New York Times’ Suzy Menkes interview with Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz. Menkes discusses with Lanvin’s star designer putting women first and the Winter 2010 collection.

I visited the FENDI website last night on my APPLE laptop (now you know what I do on my down time, I study fashion, my other passion:) and discovered three fascinating interviews with: Silvia Venturini Fendi who represents the third generation of the family founder. Michael Burke who was appointed Fendi CEO and Managing Director in 2004. And, Karl Lagerfeld who is is the creative director. My favorite quote from the interviews was by Lagerfeld: “I’m in the mood for Italy like I’m in the mood for love…”. Makes me really want to visit Rome again. Last time I was there was in 2000!

Interview With Lanvin Designer Alber Elbaz

I stumbled upon a brilliant interview with Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz who is a big inspiration of mine. The interview is titled The Future Of Fashion, Part Six: Alber Elbaz and it was written by by Dirk Standen for

Here’s an exert:

Talking about instant successes, have you followed the rise of the fashion bloggers?

I have to tell you, I love bloggers. And I’m not telling you that because I’m [trying to] bribe them. Every morning I wake up and I see the blogs. There is something very innocent. There is something very honest. You can say, OK, they didn’t have the experience of seeing things. But again it’s another medium. That’s their opinion and it’s interesting to see how politically incorrect they are. Of course, when they say, “Oh my God, I love it,” I’m extremely happy.
