JG: some thoughts and actions to think about, and you should

Happy 100th Birthday, Miami Beach

Pourquoi les stars ont-elles toutes de faux seins ?

today is my favorite day. PourquoiBecause it's the day of Mugler's Fall / Winter 2015 fashion show, and that is a reason to be excited.
Models include Karlie Kloss, Georgia May Jagger, Constance Jablonski, Taylor Hill, and Jessica Stam.
Clothes include sleek black suiting, little white dresses, and a metallic gold miniskirt that ellicited gasps from the audience.

If someone was going to tell you something nice which of these two would you


"Just be sure you count on me and when the counting's through
Count me madly in love with you."

or this one...

Here is a picture of Apple CEO Tim Cook wearing the entry level Watch in Stainless Steel with a Sapphire Crystal, Retina Display, Ceramic Back and White Fluoroelastomer sport band. It’s a good-looking wristband, but will it be a game-changing watch? Specifically for collectors of haute horology, the question is: Would you buy one?

From outerwear to fine lingerie, Stella McCartney has shown she knows what women want to wear—even before they do.

The Most Expensive Cartier item is Owned by Sheikha Mozah!
Sheikha Mozah not only knows how to dress, she is also a master of accessorizing. Sheikha Mozah was wearing the iconic Cartier panther bracelet with her Dior couture. This Cartier Panther bracelet was sold for £4,521,250 at the Sotheby’s auction to a “secret” buyer in 2010, it became the most expensive Cartier item to be sold at any auction. Now we know the secret buyer was Sheikha Mozah, she has worn this bracelet only once in public. We are already amazed how much money she spends on haute couture, now we know this money is nothing compare to her jewellery budget. This bracelet was previously owned by Wallis Simpson. 

Dr Frederic Brandt has several claims to fame. He is, for instance, the largest user of injectable collagen and Botox - in the world. 'I just love fillers!' and he loves to be called a Prada junkie...as someone that only wears Prada

He is the Baron of Botox, the King of Collagen
It's the latest must-have cosmetic miracle - the New New Face, wrinkle-free and plump as a baby's. But to get it, you must enter a pact with the eerily smooth Dr Frederic Brandt - the King of Collagen

Dr. Tracy M. Baker (Miami) is one of the most renowned breast augmentation surgeons worldwide
Using high tech instrumentation, Dr. Baker performs nearly all of his breast augmentations endoscopically. This technique requires only a tiny 2 cm incision under the arm, which does not leave a visible scar on the breast. In addition, Dr. Baker's technique is much less likely to cause nerve damage

There are many plastic surgeons but few artists and he is an artist and a great surgeon.

I love this pic........it is a vision of art imitating life........WOW!!

Love is never out of style....but is there real love still out there????

And while on the subject of love....I believe love is a word used too much and much too soon.

An artist is a title that you earn; and it’s a little embarrassing to hear people refer to themselves as artists - it’s like referring to themselves as a genius.

Se habla ingles- If you have been to Miami you will see signs such as this, meaning, we speak English....I always tell people, if someone dropped you off in Miami and did not tell you where you were, you would not believe you were  in USA...Spanish dominates Miami , specially Miami Beach....here are some observations that I will tell you about....... A few moons ago I was having a Cafe con Leche at the News Cafe on South Beach when a woman burst through the entrance- one of those self-assured , beautiful, take-control Miami women who dress in gossamer resortwear like they are stepping off a yatcht of solid gold. She came rushing up and lobbed a question at me in Spanish. I answered immediately and she did not even ask, how come you speak Spanish?, she simply assumed I did, and those who know me, of course know I do.
In the end, it's not the beaches or Deco architecture or world class art and cuisine that make Miami sexy. IT's the Spanish. With such a passionate language on your side, the whole city feels like a giant, seductive VIP room. It also suffuses your fashion sense....of course add all those gorgeous latinas girls from all over South America and the Caribe!!!!.....and yes, Pit Bull sings about the Miami Latina girls in the song, 
International Love!!!

The ushanka is one of Russia’s greatest media icons, and an item that I tend to crush on from time to time.

Los Angeles........LA............


Se dá para aproveitar todas essas atrações e paisagens em apenas um dia, imagina o que você não conseguiria fazer em, digamos, um mês inteiro! Dar um grau nas piscinas com seu carrinho em Venice Beach, depois cair no mar da praia embaixo daquele solzão, em seguida colar no In-N-Out Burger para matar a fome, tirar uma onda no Rodeo Drive, famoso quarteirão englobado em Bervely Hills, e, para fechar, até ir ver um jogo de beisebol no Dodger Stadium. Sim, claro, descobrir também outras peculiaridades locais que as vezes não entram nos roteiros turísticos, concorda? Alias, se já esteve na área, escreva aqui nos comentários sobre outras possibilidades de desfrutar L.A. tão divertidas quanto essas que mencionamos!

Modestia parte I told you so..............

Backless Dresses

If you're not a fan of showing too much cleavage, you'll be happy to know that the back is back to fashion. Backless dresses and shirts are becoming more and more popular as a trend, so our prediction is that this spring and summer the streets and red carpets will be crowded with women showing off their beautiful backs. 

Why the back? It's suggestive and sexy, yet mysterious and subtle. You can strike a unique balance between showing off a lot of skin, while keeping things classy. Also, for those girls who aren't satisfied with their cleavage size this trend can be a great way to show off their best parts, and hide the imperfections.  

Russian Dolls.

I liked a lot this playful and colorful photo montage. It features world famous Russian “It-Girls”: Miroslava Duma, Elena Perminova, Vika Gazinskaya and Natalya Goldenberg in this ironic yet glamorous set up.

Is this a sign announcing a new fashion era? An era when fashion capitals move East, migrating all the way to Moscow and up to Shanghai. Fashion designers pay more and more attention to new markets, what is especially visible when it comes to China. One thing is almost certain, more changes are yet to be seen. Maybe fashion czarinas are back for good.

a little take on Japan-日本,

The first greeting you usually learn in Japanese is often お元気ですか? o-genki desu ka? which corresponds to "How are you?" (although it can be more accurately translated as "Are you fine?"). The reply is はい、元気ですhai, genki desu (Yes, I am fine). 

 writing kanji, since in our modern era almost no one writes kanji characters by hand anymore, instead using Pasacon and Keitai (personal computers and cell phones). This leads to the loss of kanji writing ability, a problem that affects Japanese people, too, though happily reading of kanji is not affected.

I overheard this at a private party I attended more recently:
An aristocrat lady to another one:
Massage the truth
Admit to a peel when you've had botox
Admit to Botox when you've had fillers
Admit to fillers when you've had a facelift
And never look your age or admit your age!!

Ten years ago women just wanted to look thinner. Now They want their body to look younger too.

Over the past year, Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon Gregory Mueller has emerged as the man to see when you feel bad about your neck. Mueller—is the originator of the Trampoline technique, a procedure that alleviates the dreaded “turkey neck.” During just one hour in a surgery center, with the patient under local anesthesia, he employs his patented LED-lit, knitting needle–like tool to thread nylon sutures in a crisscross pattern through the soft tissue under the chin

Supersmile Professional Whitening System

Supersmile Professional Whitening System is a set comprising a 50 grams whitening toothpaste and a 34 grams whitening accelerator which is transparent and gel-like. It is easy to use; all I need is to squeeze equal amount of the toothpaste and the accelerator on a dry toothbrush and brush away for 2 minutes. No additional effort required!

   HH Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned 

More from the Kuwait visit, at the dinner table.

Yesterday, 08th March 2015 Sheikha Mozah had a one day visit to Kuwait for a royal event. Sheikha Mozah was looking fabulous in traditional bisht which is a traditional Arabic men’s cloak. She looked so charming, I love how she injects her feminine style into men’s clothes and breaking rules in her own way. She was standing with Sheikha Amthal Al ahmad al Sabah of Kuwait. I love this look, traditional and chic.




The Art of the Trench Coat

Charlotte Gainsbourg, Charlotte Rampling, Peter Linbergh, Vogue 2004, Packing For Paris, The Trench, Vicki Archer

It is light, it is practical and it works from day through until the evening. The trench coat looks superb whether it is worn over jeans and a sweater or with a little black dress. It equally relates with sneakers or stilettos, bikers or sandals. The trench coat is an all round really great friend and one of the pieces of clothing that I consider to be a top ten wardrobe essential.

Charlotte Gainsbourg, Charlotte Rampling, Peter Linbergh, Vogue 2004, Packing For Paris, The Trench, Vicki Archer

French women of every age have worn the trench coat forever; they wear it with such style and flair. I don’t believe it is magic just a little know how. To wrap it around the body and knot the belt rather than buckle it in the conventional manner, is the way the trench looks best. A slight push up of the sleeve, hands in the pockets and that’s that.

Wardrobe essentials

Do you sometimes feel like you have nothing to wear despite your stuffed wardrobe? Do you often buy items that you can't pair with anything? If your answer is "yes", you probably have a dysfunctional closet. It is missing some functional key pieces that allow you to mix, match and make basics for amazing outfits. So, what are the all-time must-have items?

1. A quality pair of designer jeans will last for years and it's very versatile. It can be worn with blazer and a tee for a casual look, also with high heels and elegant top for a night out... There are many possibilities!

2.Black blazer flatters all body types and looks great matched with 
any other essential. Excellent for office work and even casual outfits. 

3. Beige trench coat can be paired with jeans, dresses, skirts for either day or evening. The flattering classic belt tie is a feminine component as it cinches your waist and displays your figure. Once you've included beige, feel free to include colors.
4. Little black dress works with anything. For classy girls, a wrap dress will do. But you can also find it in all kinds of styles. It can be worn with pretty much everything else on this page, which confirms its status as a brilliant basic.

5. Black pumps. According to the laws of fashion, when something has been around for three seasons or more it has the right to declare itself a basic.  Black heels are the perfect choice for very occasion. 

6.Leather jacket allows you freedom when pulling together casual outfits. It gives that little edge to sugar-sweet outfits. It can be white, beige, brown or black, studded or simple, it's up to you.

7. White shirt. For whenever you need to wear something sophisticated and cute, a dressy shirt will never fail you. It's flexible to accessorize and can be paired with anything!

8. Large bag serves double duty as a briefcase during the week and a shopping bag on the weekend. 

9. Warm cardigan can be dressed up or down depending on the situation. You can pair it with dresses, jeans, skirts or dress pants, and it will always look perfect.  

10. Pearl necklace. Need I say more? For spicing up your outfit twirl it twice around your neck and enjoy the attention!

Street Style

In Los Angeles, there exists a magical place. It's not much by the way of architectural landmarks, but it is a place where many dreams come true. Well, that is if your dream is of sugar highs to end all sugar highs. I'd like to introduce you to California Donuts. 
California Donuts is an institution in Los Angeles society. Imagine donuts offered in more flavors than Baskin Robbins ice cream.
