People are little scared of Miuccia. Nobody understands the female zeitgeist 
quite like Miuccia.

Molto megglio dei sesso....sono d'accordo(sorrisi)

 it is confirmed the lady in the picture was not Sheikha Mozah, it was her younger sister Sheikha Shaikha Bint Nasser Al Missned. According to the source, they both look a lot like each other and have very similar style. They both love to wear Chanel, Dior, Jean Paul Gaultier and Stephane Rolland Couture. So the mystery is solved

no competition , the Sheihka even at her age runs circles....runs roughshod around Kardashian...........

In a perfect world, every trend, cut, and piece looks amazing on every single person—but in our world, where trains arrive late and our computers self-destruct, not all fashion is created equal.

"It is not chic(kosher) to divulge one's spending habits" says Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery managing partner Christine Chiu.

Qu’est-ce que tu manges ?
C’est peut être l’une des phrases qui revient le plus souvent dans nos conversations.

3 is a party! Bravi ragazzi, fino alla fine!!!!


O envelhecimento é inevitável, mas podemos dirigir este processo, mantendo a pele jovem e saudável por mais tempo. Ouvir a frase, “ a beleza vem de dentro”, nunca fez tanto sentido!!
Aging is inevitable, but we can drive this process, keeping the skin young and healthy for longer. Hear the phrase, "beauty comes from within," never made much sense !!

"   The key question to keep asking is, are you spending your time on the right things? Because time is all you have.   " 

Non, sérieux – on passe notre temps à parler de nos fringues, mais à quel moment on s’occupe de notre allure ?
No seriously – we spend our time talking about our clothes, but when do we take care of our allure?

Daddy Yankee - Sígueme y Te Sigo

Yankee, haciendo que el reggaetón siga sonando y sobre todo que no se escuche vulgar, como muchos lo consideran. Creo que todos los géneros tienen algo de picardía, si embargo al reggaetón lo han crucificado, ya que gente de barrio que escuchan también este género se han encargado de hacer cosas que haga que la demás gente lo vea como escoria, cuando tenemos a Yankee, que siempre ha hecho de su música algo bailable y cool.

Taking notes or writing lists is not something I generally do. I remember.

I have been blessed with a proficient memory and I don’t forget too much, too often. I hardly use 
a diary or an appointment schedule, I put dates and ideas in my mind and that’s that; locked in. 
I have never been one for lists, although I understand the benefits and I am sure they would 
enhance my sometimes chaotic life. As the pace grows here on the blog I am starting to feel 
that I should become more organised and planned instead of writing about what I feel like, 
when the mood strikes. An editorial agenda if you like. I will try.

Puerto Ricans often call the island Borinquen, from Borikén, its indigenous Taíno name, which means "Land of the Valiant Lord". The terms boricua and borincano derive from Borikén andBorinquen respectively, and are commonly used to identify someone of Puerto Rican heritage. The island is also popularly known in Spanish as la isla del encanto, meaning "the island of enchantment".

Marilyn Monroe was doubtlessly one of the most loved famous people of all time. Men wanted to be with her, women wanted to be her. The queen of pin-ups never stopped astonishing us. Even 50 years after her mysterious death, people still talk about her dramatic life, her imperfect but impressive beauty, her attitude that could break every single heart... She was an inspiration to many, in fact she still is. Famous and less famous women around the globe, such as Madonna, Christina Aguilera, Nicole Kidman and many, many more, are still trying to impersonate her, to act like her, to look like her. But we had only one Marilyn.

"What makes Norma Jean, a.k.a. Marilyn Monroe, so special?" someone might say.

* First of all, she had a really difficult childhood, she was sexually abused, without an actual home and family to support her. Her father left her when she was a baby and never in his life accepted her, and her mother suffered a massive mental breakdown. She got married at only 16. It is pretty impressive how she rised above all that!

* At a time when photos exposing the female body were rarely available she was an exciting
newcomer to the scene. She was on the cover of the very first Playboy in 1953. No other actress has ever been able to be so incredibly sexy on the photos while also retaining an innocence and vulnerability.
Marilyn had a sensual, sexual attraction for both men and women and generated envy in the rest of the female population.
She revolutionized the way sex was viewed- in the uptight 1950's sex was viewed as something dirty and shameful, Marilyn made it fun and funny, she could be sexy while still being proper enough to bring home to mother and it altered society in such a way to make the sexual revolution of the 1960's possible.

*Apart from being a great actress, Marilyn was well read and highly intelligent. Her favorite authors included Dostoevsky, Proust,Freud, and Whitman.

Marilyn was sweet, kind and perhaps naive, care-free and almost child-like. She loved kids and animals.
She was rich, but she cared nothing for money and lived very modestly.
Her combination of beauty, intelligence, sexiness, and vulnerability continues to inspire legions of fans to this day, nearly 50 years after she died.
 This is why she continues to appeal to men while not being threatening to women. In fact, men find her attractive and often feel protective of her, women have empathy for her, relate to her, and also feel protective of her. Girls identify so well with her because she was very open about her nervousness and insecurities, and they feel that if the most glamorous woman in the world can be self conscious then it's okay that they are too.


Yves Saint Laurent’s Fall Winter 1976 collection began production with the petite mains- workshops who specialized in embroidery, passementerie, lace, feather work, and Jewelry. The 1976 collection has often been referred to as Ballet Russes,Opera et Ballet Russes, Rich Peasant, The Russian Collection, or simply as YSL’s 1976 collection”. The garments drew from an assortment of Russian influence, starting with Russia’s infamous Cossack warriors. There was also inspiration found in Russian peasant wear, and by the bakst costumes featured in the actual Ballet Russes. Of course Yves made sure to add a bit of functionality in his work, to make his fall/winter Haute Couture collection more suitable for the street.

Alors en Vuitton, Fendi ou encore Alexander Wang, elles mixent, mixent et re remixent, les pièces phares de saison avec une touche d'élégance parfois, 
et de baby doll d'autres fois...

a little take on Japan-日本,

It's fun to try to understand Japan by thinking about its culture from new directions, for example through the aesthetic concepts of 侘び wabi and 寂び sabitranslatable as "sober refinement and austere serenity," which in practice mean appreciating things that are old and imperfect, like a well-used green tea cup or the sad loneliness of a rural train station in Hokkaido. You can even seek to understand Japan from the bottom up, so to speak, by thinking about shoes. The Japanese famously remove their shoes at a lowered area called a 玄関 genkan before entering a home or business, which keeps most of the outside dirt from coming in. Shoes are always considered&#27738 ;い kitanai (dirty)


Plástica é coisa do passado! (Foto: Shutterstock)

Que plástica, que nada: a atual onda novaiorquina de rejuvenescimento é um mix de vários tratamentos dermatológicos que, feitos em sequência rápida num único dia, garantem anos a menos por um preço mais barato e um pós menos traumático. Batizada de facial face-lift em alusão a um simples cuidado facial, a novidade pode ser composta por injeções, lasers, microdermoabrasão e ultrassom, tudo dependendo de cada caso. “É um passo a menos de um face-lift”, disse a Dra. Debra Jaliman ao The New York Times, que oferece um pacote do gênero por US$ 3 mil 

That plastic, that nothing: the current New Yorker rejuvenating wave is a mix of various dermatological treatments, made in rapid succession in a single day, ensure years less for a cheaper price and a less traumatic post. Called facial face-lift in reference to a simple facial care, the novelty may consist of injections, lasers, microdermabrasion and ultrasound, all depending on each case. "It is a step less than a face-lift," said Dr. Debra Jaliman The New York Times, which provides a gender package for $ 300

"What makes Christy Turlington [Burns] such an icon of virtually perfect beauty is a long oval divided face almost perfectly in thirds," "Forehead to wide-set eyes and high cheekbones to full, wide lips." Yep, it's that simple.

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

Although the season for the big coat is over, I still want to do a post with Royal ladies in Camel Coats. Queen Letizia of Spain, Princess Charlene of Monaco, Sheikha Moza of Qatar, Queen Rania of Jordan, Princess Mary of Denmark and Queen Maxima of Netherlands all wore different types of camel coats. These ladies showed that camel coats are versatile and can be worn with almost everything and at any event. It can be body-fitting or oversized depending on your own style, which one is your favorite?

yves and his muse Lucienne

“The modern woman is artistically literate, well traveled, and a sexually liberated being”. It was no secret that Yves Saint Laurent fell under the spell of beautiful women, whom he often made into his muse. Each of the women had their trademark in both beauty and individuality, including Victorie Doutreleau, Catherine Deneuve, Betty Catroux, and Katoucha Niane. Yves first muse was his mother Lucienne, who consistently presented herself as this sort of maquillaged creature in his eyes. During the day Lucienne would wear blouses with fresh, crisp laundered skirts, and by evening she would change into full bodied gowns, to be paired with high heels. It was Lucienne who encouraged her sons interest in fashion, often taking him with her on trips to pick up the latest edition of Vogue, or bringing him out to the theatre. It was also Lucienne that gave Yves all his support that would make him a success in his not so distant future.

Spring Fever And Vintage Dresses

Vintage style floral dresses have always resonated with me.
M. Givenchy must have felt the same when he dressed Audrey Hepburn in the 1957 film, Funny Face.

the idea of cruising down the PCH

If you've ever had the pleasure of driving in Los Angeles, you'll know that traffic is just a part of the game. There's no avoiding it. However, there is a way to make it all the more enjoyable - music. Whether you are traveling alone, or you are being driven by a chauffeur, this mix will not only keep you entertained, it will have you discovering new music, reliving memories through some golden oldies and just enjoying the sunny weather and tall palm trees as you breeze down the coast.

Beauty Pose -Cavity Pose......'mushiba no poozu' or 'mushiba poozu'

the new fad that comes from Japan there is a "cavity pose", which is nothing more than putting your hand pressing the cheeks out in the most beautiful selfie. According to the Japanese, the "trick" thins and decreases the size of the face, and there in Japan, small faces are considered more attractive. 
The position that looks like you're feeling a toothache, is called by the Nipponese "mushiba poozu" 

The Apple Watch is a winner – but to the same degree of 
the iPhone or iPad? 

And I got the red band watch long before hoi polloi(smiles)

Were you wooed?
