Real (Gay) Househusbands of New York City?

Marc Jacobs with husband Lorenzo Martone

Something great thing in my life happened today, I read in one of my favorite blogs that there might be a gay version of Real Housewives. And guess who is rumored to already be signed on to the show? Marc Jacobs. Let's see, one of the best designers: check. Being one of the only men who can pull off wearing a skirt, check. Being in a reality show that already has a huge popularity and might even be better with gay men and might possibly have more bitchiness and cattiness then all of the housewives combined: check, check and check. The show is said to be a gay version of Real Housewives, which is reportedly said to be named Kept, created by the team who brought us Real Housewives. It will be featured on the gay network Logo sometime in 2010. They are doing open casting calls in New York City for "high-powered (openly gay) playboys" in a few weeks, with March Jacobs (hopefully) already on board. Guess I have to upgrade to Direct TV now.

The September Issue

So this past Friday, me and one of my good friends Corey went to see The September Issue (finally). Okay and before you say, damn you guys are late, it's not our fault we go to school in Tallahassee, Fl! Anyways, we went to see it and we both absolutely loved it. It was such a great perspective on the life of Anna Wintour and Vogue overall. We both agreed that Grace Coddington (the Creative Director at Vogue) may be our new favorite employee over at the magazine. She had such a great personality and her vision is amazing. She is the person responsible for almost all the fabulous photo shoots that take place at Vogue. Her and Ms. Wintour together are hilarious because they are always butting heads and disagreeing on what they believe is right.
Andre Leon Tally was also hilarious (and fabulous) but I thought he would be featured a little more than he was. Especially since you always see him and Anna photographed together. During the movie I was so excited because my boss over at Glamour, Jenny Feldman, was in the movie as well. She's in the scene when they are at the party for Thakoon and Gap I believe. She's talking to Thakoon about how his face is everywhere now. That might have been the highlight for me lol.
Overall I thought the movie was great and really showed some key factors that go in the publishing of a magazine. Although in my opinion, it didn't look as crazy as it really is (or could be). Working at Glamour when they were putting out the September issue was crazy. Some nights I wouldn't leave until like 9pm and would be running around like a crazy person all day. But I guess the focus of the movie was more on Anna Wintour and how she is dealing with the September issue, not the rest of the office.
Has anyone else seen the movie? What did you guys think?

She by Sheree At Fashion Week

So fashion week came and went. I updated on the trends I recognized and loved for the Spring 2010 Ready-to-wear lines, most of them were fabulous. And after looking over them again, I still believe that Charlotte Ronson was definitely one of my favorite. But, I have to add to the list Oscar de la Renta and Christian Siriano; I thought they were elegant and really made a statement.


All of my people who watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta might have known that our girl Sheree had her line, She By Sheree shown at fashion week....pause.

This is another one of those things that makes me mad. There are designers, REAL DESIGNERS, who are fighting and working hard everyday of their lives to one day be shown at Bryant Park. Being that's been their dream since, EVER. And this chica, Sheree, is at fashion week with no ease? Like it's any other week out the year, no biggie. Wow. Shows you money really does equal power and completely ignoring real talent. But, after looking at the garments she put out during fashion week, they weren't all too horrible.

Ironically, I think she looks the worst compared to all the other designs. It ages her like 30 years. And isn't it funny how she talked so bad about Lisa's jumpsuit during the episode when Lisa was revealing her line, and yet she made an almost identical jumpsuit just in a different color? Things that make you go hmmmm....

Fashion Week Spring 2010

Oh fashion week, you do me right every single season. Especially this season in particular. There were colors, prints, basics, lingerie, everything a girl needs to fill her closet with. But now that fashion week has wrapped up and all the fabulous-ness that is Bryant Park has packed up and moved on to London, it's now time to report and check out the great looks from the runway.

With Spring coming along (obviously) SHORTS were huge on the runway. From short shorts to longer, (but mostly short) many designers incorporated them into their lines.

Another trend that hit hard on the runway which I love (and already have a lot of) is BLUE. All different shades were used on all different garments.

I hope you have somewhere to go this Spring, because PARTY DRESSES were also a defining trend on the runway. Designers used lots of colors and prints to make the dresses stand out.

Don't throw away your fall, STRONG SHOULDER blazers out quite yet, they're back! I know a lot of people think Madonna, circa 1980-whatever, but I love them, especially since I was only a baby then :)

Anyone who knows me, knows I love Lady Gaga. This woman went ALL OUT during the VMA's (hilarious) and I thought she was absolutely fabulous. And to prove her fabulousness, designers have started picking up her personal style of NO PANTS.

Not only were people not wearing pants, but there was also a lot of nipple action on the runway. SHEER, with no bra, is back!

When I think of DRAPING and luxurious gowns, my mind always goes back to Rami from Project Runway Season 4. The judges use to ask him, is this all you can do? Well, the trend is hitting the runways and designers are showing what they can do.

All in all, Fashion Week Spring 2010 NYC was a success. My favorite designer from the runways was definitely Charlotte Ronson. I absolotey loved her line and would defintiely wear A LOT of garments she made. Do you have any favorite designers from this years fashion week? I'd love to know :)

Stalker Alert: I'm Obsessed with Carrie Bradshaw

Anyone who knows me knows I am obsessed with Sex & the City, and even more specifically, my boo SJP (Sarah Jessica Parker aka the lovely Carrie Bradshaw). And when I heard they were doing a Sex & the City 2, I.Almost.Died. THEN, while I was in New York this summer, just chillin' at my desk one day at work, I read that Sex & the City needed extras! But sadly, I had to work that day. Nonetheless, it made it oh so real to me that this movie was actually happening!
Anyways, anyone who has seen the first movie saw the fabulous-ness that happened on the big screen in terms of style. Every outfit was perfection and ALL of the lovely Sex & the City women looked absolutely beautiful. But when I came across the picture of Carrie (above) on the set of Sex & the City, I was shocked at the simplicity of her outfit. I absolutely love it. I think it's very now, meaning current trends and how many designers are going back to basics. What do you think of her outfit? Do you think the outfit choices can compete with the first movie?
