The sun shone bright and warm on the new MissoniHome boutique for Thursday’s press preview in South Hampton. Editors were bused in from NYC to join local media for the day to celebrate the brand new flagship with a festive luncheon. The boutique is the first of its kind in the US and will be open year round. Hosting the event were the shops co-owners: Bobby Ginsberg and Roxane Mosleh, along with Rosita Missoni’s nephew, Carlo Torriani -who flew in from Italy for the occasion. I caught up with the gorgeous, Missoni-clad owner, Roxane to find out what it’s like to open an outpost for such a storied brand.

Dolce & Gabbana’s shiny new 5th avenue store opened it’s doors this weekend with a celebration of grand proportions. Giovanna Battaglia hosted in a radiant red dress from the current collection – while fashion’s a-list including Chloe Sevigny, Miranda Kerr, Karolina Kurkova, Gisele Bundchen and Nicky Hilton; mixed and mingled under dramatic glass chandeliers.
My friend, Ed Kavishe of Fashion Wire Press and I sipped basil infused cocktails and enjoyed a surprise opera performance from the balcony of the 3 tiered space. There was a cornucopia of Italian edibles, and guests took home tops screen-printed with the new store’s hashtag and launch date. All in all, a warm welcome for the cool store…
‘Twas a starry night for the Metropolitan Museum of Art who, along with Givenchy’s Ricardo Tisci, hosted their annual Costume Institute Gala in honor of their latest exhibit: PUNK: From Chaos to Couture. There was plenty of both chaos and couture on the red carpet, as celebrities and fashion’s finest rocked their wildest outfits in honor of the theme. There were spikes, safety pins and black eyeliner galore, and even a golden filigree mohawk courtesy of Sarah Jessica Parker.
Unlike other red carpet galas, the Costume Institute ball is about more than just looking great. It’s about standing out, making a statement and paying homage to fashion and art alike. While some played it safe, many dared to experiment with bold gowns and hairstyles that won’t soon be forgotten. Below is a look at some of the highlights from the memorable evening.[+READ MORE]

Of all of the daunting tasks that go into planning a wedding dress shopping may be the scariest of all. You’re up against pounds of unattractively poufy silk, snobby sales people, and price tags that can equal up to 6 months rent. It’s no wonder wedding dress shopping has been the subject of so many reality shows. But where in the wedding rule book does it say that The Gown must come from a stale showroom and look just like a version of every bride you’ve ever seen? Answer: Nowhere. Oh, and there is no “wedding rule book” either.
Now more than ever you can find plenty of gorgeous gowns that may not have been born with the purpose of standing at the alter, but are absolutely up to the task. White is one of this year’s biggest fashion trends, so why not capitalize on the surge of color-free classics on the market right now, and choose something for your wedding day that you actually want to wear? And might wear more than just once?

Everyone loves a reason to get out and about in the spring. So Cinco de Mayo comes at the perfect time; just as the weather is warming up – giving us all an excuse to celebrate at rooftop BBQ’s and al-fresco dining spots around the city. Of course, no Mexican holiday would be complete without a margarita (or 3) so when my friend’s all natural tequila company, La Brujita, asked me to contribute to their CDM guide with some day-drinking approved outfits; I gladly said “si senor!”
Click through the slideshow for some stellar suggestions on what to wear this Sunday. Plus, if you’re in search of where to go, what do do, or what to drink – check out La Brujita’s full Cinco de Mayo Guide.
When asked to describe my personal style, I often say “modern femininity with touch of masculine edge”. So when I discovered newbie designer, Marissa Webb‘s collection, which exemplifies just that, I was instantly hooked. The J. Crew alum is not exactly a new designer per se, but her namesake collection launched this season for the first time – and with great fanfare. Sweet chiffon dresses meet leather vests and shorts, all tailored to perfection – while neon colors breath life into classic blouses and otherwise demure pumps. The designer’s ability to mingle structured styles with unexpected details give her clothes a gamine quality that’s simply irresistible.
Barneys (of course) snapped the line up immediately, and her e-commerce site also launched recently – giving fashionphiles everywhere the chance to sample her wares. My personal favorites include the crisp, cropped Tyler Trench, sleek Binta Leather Shorts and bright red Marina Sandal. But the collection is so filled with natty pieces – that it’s hard to rule out anything. Wanna see what I mean? Click below for my interpretation of some of Marissa’s cornerstone pieces – accented with stunning statement jewelry Iosselliani.
