Sophisticated • Refined • Elegant 
I grew tired of not finding blogs about opulence and luxury and intelligent musings.... so i decided to share my collection of nice things with some eccentric, ecclectic elements with an additional touch of being different that you will not find in any other blog.
And more important I want to tell you many things you do not know.....I feel I am.....thanks so much for all the support from all around this beautiful world....

and when i like something I tend to accumulate many of them(smiles)

The King of Collagen, the Baron of Botox, the Svengali of Skin Care, and other alliterative epithets signifying style and flash and glamour and hullabaloo and general hot-stuffness.

Remembering the late Dr Frederick Brandt............

 Dr Fred Brand'ts practice was crazily, freakily, out-of-this-worldily fancy. Glitz galore. -Movie stars, rock, and pop-television personalities and fashion models and professional athletes, round-the-clock talk-show hosts-morning, afternoon, and late-night-princesses from small, oil-rich countries, tycoons who jetted around in, well, jets, whispered in presidents' ears, owned vineyards in Napa Valley, castles painted by Monet, Monets. Tycoons' dependents too, naturally. It Seemed like you were only eligible to fill out a form if patient Jacqueline Susann, G-d rest her soul, could've swapped out a few vowels in your name, you stuck in one of her written-in-lipstick-and-eyebrow- pencil roman à clef lives-of-the-rich-and-tucked jobs. And speaking of names, I could drop dozens on you here, but I'm just going to drop one, since it's big enough to knock you out, and since it's so famous it's become virtually synonymous with the word: Madonna


"his flawless public façade masked private despair"

Dr Fred always wanted you to look like you—just fresher. 
As a patient and dear friend he is missed as he was one of the kindest persons I have ever known.

Beyoncé may appear infallible, she’s had to apologize at least once for accidentally leaving her red underwear in with his white tees thus turning everything pink.

An armful of Giorgio Armani spells success

Lampi e tuoni all'orizzonte. Il vento che cambia e soffia più forte. (Ma quanto sanno essere belli i temporali estivi? Quelli che ti ritrovi a stringerti nella maglietta a maniche lunghe, con le gambe nude e i fichi d'India a tavola) 

Here's Dorothy Wang, one of the stars of E! reality show Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, headed into Dan Tana's restaurant in LA, carrying a bubblegum pink Hermes Kelly Bag and a shopping bag from Barneys. The show,  it's a great hate-watch, and  Dorothy is really funny.

and Dan Tana is one of my favorite places....it is for the cognoscenti to know

Beige or Black?

French women and their hair is the subject of many conversations.
What is it about their hair that makes us pay so much attention? Is the French way of hair 
styling something we can adapt and work?
Simply put, the French way is the messy way.
French girls encourage volume and wear their hair in a relaxed fashion. The blow dry is tussled, 
never slick; the cut is longer and not severe, falling ragged on the ends.

Sold Out

Just wondering.....what woman doesn't get tingles when she buys her first Alaïa dress, tries on the perfect Prada coat, or the most devastating Saint Laurent boots?

Sheikha Mozah swears by her........

Less than 2 years ago, I stumbled upon the work of Ulyana Sergeenko . I hadn’t seen anything quite like it. Definitely Russian, yes, and playful, sexy and prim all at once. A defiantly aristocratic approach to dressing.
Ulyana herself cuts a dashing, high-society figure.

In respectful remembrance.....if you follow this blog you have heard this song many many
times.....my late father would play this song and it stayed in my mind forever...

Another obsession I seem to have acquired is an affinity for collecting different versions of the Sukiyaki Song, the legendary Japanese pop song by Sakamoto Kyu that reached the #1 spot in the Billboard Hot 100 in 1963. It's not called that in Japan, of course: there the title is 上を見て歩こう ue o mite aruko, meaning "I Look Up As I Walk," and although it's got an addictive toe-tapping beat, it's actually a sad song about a man whose just lost his love and is walking with his face upturned so his tears won't fall. It's sad for another reason: 30 years ago today singer Sakamoto was killed along with 519 others when Japan Airlines Flight 123 suffered a hydraulic failure and crashed into a mountain in  Gunma.

Princess Ameera bint Aidan bin Nayef Al-Taweel Al-Otaibi - "Say Alhumduillah, because you always have more than you think you have."

Sheikha Mozah is the definition of this quote from Edith Head.
Edith Head who won a record eight Academy Awards for Best Costume Design, dressed Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face, Sabrina & Roman Holiday; Elizabeth Taylor in Elephant Walk; Grace Kelly  in To Catch a Thief; Sophia Loren and Katharine Hepburn.

How would you dress if you were the First Lady of an oil rich nation with the highest GDP per capita in the world? With OPULENCE!

a chic and beautiful girl that i know that lives in Coral Gables often wears a tennis skirt after leaving the court while she runs errands. So, it’s no surprise that she  embraced the sport-inspired trend. These pictures of Julia Bergshoeff are from the August issue of Vogue Paris.

Some norms:
 Don’t smoke.  Smoking is no longer considered glamorous–that is soooo 
démodé !!!and so unhealthy, it will kill you!!!!and stay away from second hand smoke for it is worse than smoking itself!!!

Speaking of coffee, you must drink  Macchiatos.  Glamorous people do not drink coffee with milk and sugar!!!Really(smiles)...and now you must drink flat white

This dress was the “it dress” last summer 2014 but in 2015 still desired.
But that doesn’t mean it’s now dead! Not at all! I keep on seeing it everywhere and I love it.
Such a beautiful dress, it sucks your stomach in like crazy and giving you that cute yet sexy silhouette.
Totally worth a few $k’s! ;)

The adventures of Peepy and Lady Lee..........

Okay look now. She seems to be saying - I am Lady Lee of the rising sun. Lacquered hair, lacquered face, lacquered lips, lacquered nails, polished bling. Do I need to alert you to the fact that the only thing that keeps my skin youthful and smooth is to wear a jet cloth of the finest velvet from time to time? Do I need to tell you that I will top it with a necklace the size of my gardener's family home? No. Because I'm Lady Lee and you already know that, plebe

a little take on Japan-日本,

One of the more welcome aspects of the Japanese people is their tendency to be humble, a trait you observe a lot of Japanese athletes, who smile in a self-effacing way after winning a great victory rather than running across the field yelling, "I'm #1!" humility is trait for people to have in Japan, and the "correct" way to accept a compliment is usually to deny it, which can take some getting used to coming from the West. The Japanese phrase for a person with a humble nature is koshi ga hikui, lit. "his lower back is low and close to the ground.



Types of breast implants

Saline breast implants

Saline breast implants are filled with sterile salt water. Should the implant shell leak, a saline implant will collapse and the saline will be absorbed and naturally expelled by the body.
Saline breast implants provide a uniform shape, firmness and feel, and are FDA-approved for augmentation in women age 18 or older.

Silicone breast implants

Silicone breast implants are filled with silicone gel. The gel feels a bit more like natural breast tissue. If the implant leaks, the gel may remain within the implant shell, or may escape into the breast implant pocket. A leaking implant filled with silicone gel will not collapse.
If you choose silicone implants, you may need to visit your plastic surgeon regularly to make sure the implants are functioning properly. An ultrasound or MRI screening can assess the condition of breast implants.
Silicone breast implants are FDA-approved for augmentation in women age 22 or older.

Gummy bear breast implants

Form-stable implants are sometimes referred to as gummy bear breast implants because they maintain their shape even when the implant shell is broken.
The consistency of the silicone gel inside the implant is thicker than traditional silicone gel implants. These implants are also firmer than traditional implants, but are thought to be less likely to break.
Gummy bear breast implants are shaped rather than round. They have more projection at the bottom and are tapered towards the top. If a shaped implant rotates, it may lead to an unusual appearance of the breast.
Placement of gummy bear implants requires a longer incision in the skin.

Round breast implants

Round breast implants have a tendency to make breasts appear fuller than form-stable implants. Higher profile options can achieve even more projection.
Because round implants are the same shape all over, there is less concern about them rotating out of place.

Smooth breast implants

Smooth breast implants are the softest feeling. These implants can move with the breast implant pocket, which may give more natural movement.
Smooth implants may have some palpable or visible rippling.

Textured breast implants

Textured breast implants develop scar tissue to stick to the implant, making them less likely to move around inside of the breast and get repositioned.
Texturing offers some advantage in diminishing the risk of a tight scar capsule.
Implant manufacturers occasionally introduce new styles and types of breast implants, so there may be additional options available.
Whether you choose saline or silicone implants, it is important for you to monitor your breast implants and follow-up with your plastic surgeon for appropriate checkups.

   HH Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned

Fabulous Sheikha Mozah has been spotted in Zurich yesterday. Looking beautiful and elegant in her causal clothes. Super!

I have been looking to find the runway sample of her black Ulyana Sergeenko couture dress.  at last I figured this dress from the Fall 2015 collection might be the “inspiration”. Her dress has three layers just like the runway dress and the top part is almost identical. Although I like her version, I think she would’ve looked even more sensational in the runway dress with the pop of colors

Masculine can be very feminine.

Wearing a masculine style and turning it feminine is one of the easiest ways to create an outfit.

There is a theory, that lipstick sales increase as the economy declines. But when you consider the price of a single tube, is there a corresponding indicator? If Christian Louboutin's very first lipstick, in an elaborately decorated gold or black amphora that clocks in at $90, is any indication, it could be a flush fall. Being in the red never looked so good.

Things Rich People Say
I got 99 problems but being rich ain't one

1. "Will we be seeing you in Antibes?"
2. "Buffy, what's an Uber?"
3. "I knew he was the real deal when he suggested we order a bottle of Château Lafite."
4. "Yes we downsized - we only have two vacation homes now."
5. "Fabulous, isn't it? I can give you my contractor's name if you ever need somebody."

Nowadays this is an it sign.............

China's vulgar rich: befriended but unloved

Young and rich: A scene from Tiny Times 2, a popular film which celebrates overt materialism about four Shanghai students.
They have been mentioned more than 56 million times on Sina Weibo, China's Twitter. Everyone wants to be their friend, but no one likes them. They seem to be everywhere, throwing around their newly minted renminbi and well-used UnionPay debit cards; yet they are elusive and shun the media.
Their love for bling has become the backbone of the global luxury goods industry, yet they are also the subject of disdain, the butt of jokes, the punching bag for that which is offensive to good taste.
They are the tuhao - tu means dirt or uncouth; hao means splendour - and they are the Beverly Hillbillies of China. Or something like that: A crowdsourced translation call on China's social media yielded "new money," "slumdog millionaire," the "riChinese" and "billionbilly." When English falls short, French is on hand to help: Tuhao have the artistic sensibilities of the arriviste, the social grace of the parvenu, and the spending habits of the nouveau riche.
