Black is always elegant. It is the most complete color in the whole world, made of all the colours in the palette.

Is ‘Chivalry’ dead?

Man. Oh Man.
Is ‘Chivalry’ Dead?


The qualities idealized by knighthood, such as bravery, courtesy, honor, and gallantry toward women.

I am not part of the ‘throw-away’ FASHION generation. I have a RESPECT for quality. I like things that get better as they AGE -(Brioni dress coats, Missoni, Gucci horse bit loafers, Prada techno collection, anything Louis Vuitton)

I can never have enough praise for Mozart. You could say that I am a Mozartphile. I am forever surprised, astounded, delighted and intrigued by his music. Recently, I have been listening to Dvorak and Sibelius, and they surprise and astound, but they never really delight like Mozart.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Piano Concerto No. 21 - Andante

 Class is not just something one is born with. It comes with the way you move, the way you dress and the way you speak. It flows with your actions, reactions and decisions

If not for Monsieur Louis Vuitton...there would not be a Marc Jacobs....or a Bernard Arnault.

Don Draper is Don Draper which means he is it!!!!!

Because it's pure drama, it's based on real life, what happens in a person's life, the emotions, the growing up, love, lust, greed and introspection. It's by far the best series on television because it shows how much life has changed since the 60's and kind of shows the whole thrill of living in that period, the whole attitude and how much we're missing in life due to technology

and yes, you read correctly....JG takes three showers a day..........

Lilly Ghalichi vs Zahia Dehar

Barbie’s ethnic cousins. Persian Barbie  Lilly Ghalichi is a law school graduate, turned swimsuit maker, turned reality star turned eyelash designerZahia Dehar‘s claim to fame came courtesy of a sex scandal with the French soccer team, and she’s been living the Barbie dream ever since. Ok they’re not technically similar, but both are petite, love plastic surgery and will do anything for fame! Lilly claims her eyelashes sold out before they even became available. Zahia’s meteoric rise in fashion is endorsed by big names in haute couture. Christian Louboutin and Jean Paul Gaultier are regulars at her Paris Fahsion Week lingerie shows labeled Zahia Couture. Karl Lagerfeld declared “there is not one ounce of vulgarity in her” and likened her to an 18th-century courtesan.

a little take on Japan

One of the most powerful symbols of Japan is, of course, Mt. Fuji, the beautiful volcano that sits astride Shizuoka and Yamanashi prefectures and is visible from Kamakura, Yokohama and (when the weather permits), Tokyo. Known as 富士山 Fuji-san in Japanese(remember, never call it "Fuji-yama," an error foreigners commonly make that has become an embarrassing cliche by now), the mountain has been a part of Japan's culture for millenia. 

There are interesting ways to gain an understanding of a society through its language. Two words that speak to Japan's rule-oriented approach to behavior are the words chanto("properly") and chanto shita ("proper"), which are used to grant a higher status to "the way things should be done."



Dr. Gervaise Gerstner, Dermatologist - based in NYC

and the good Doctor says about skin-care tips:

It’s all the same old boring stuff: not smoking, wearing sunscreen every day, even when it rains and snows(but you must). And New York women in general are very skinny, but the skinnier you getthe more your face gets hollow and sunken and needs fillers and things. You should have monthly glycolic peels in the hands of a dermatologist, though there are wonderful little kits you can have at home. I have patients in boarding school and in Dubai, so I send them little kits and they send me pictures.



This week again I was asked: 
-”Mr Goldstein,
should I fix my nose?”. Often my answer is: YES! 
If your nose isn’t your best friend, then check these pictures. You might find a nose that looks like yours, and see how it could look if you had it retouched. 

Two of my best friends had their nose redone lately, and they look so much better even though nobody can really spot where the difference comes from, but they for sure look much better.

And there is no one in the world that does beautiful and asymmetrical noses like Dr (Prof.) Ivo Pitanguy in Brasil

some of the best, some of the chic and some of the beautiful in the world!!!!

I am completely smitten with these knotty pony tails from Michael Kors, they are perfect for the spring! And I like how they look on chic women.....

Caroline Issa is stunning. 

Let's start by pointing out all the wrong things in this look... nothingzeronada! It's the casualness of the denim, the intricate boots and the stripey sheer top all put together combined with red lips and sharp shape sunnies that makes my head spin.
