SKYY Vodka just announced an exclusive partnership with Chef Marcus Samuelsson as he is the brand’s first-ever culinary ambassador. They have teamed up to create “Captivating Cocktails”, a program designed to alleviate consumers’ fears about creating sophisticated cocktails at home. By utilizing classic, beloved recipes and giving them simple, sophisticated twists, Marcus created a roster of cocktails and dishes using fresh, seasonal ingredients inspired by his exotic travels. Marcus teaches consumers through these recipes—there is nothing to be afraid of. These recipes are a great way to gather with your friends and family to enjoy the fall season and might I add -- they look rather tasty! The ingredients are ultra-fresh using basil, grapes, coriander and other interesting twists. What a great new take on fall drink recipes! Cheers, everyone!

When I heard that socialite Olivia Palermo modeled the latest Jill Stuart bags featured in Vogue Girl Korea for Fall/Winter 2012, I couldn't wait to see the steller pictures for the September feature. Palermo is a staple in the fashion world as someone that exudes a sophisticated style that a true fashionista couldn't help but admire. The photoshoot for the Jill Stuart handbag collection showcases similarities to Blair Waldorf, the wealthy, socialite portrayed by Leighton Meester in the CW’s Gossip Girl along with elegant cuts and prints.
She’s still got it. In the saucy September travel-themed issue of V Magazine, Nicole Kidman reveals much more than the plot to her upcoming movie, The Paperboy (where she pees on Zac Efron in a scene). The 45-year-old actress literally bares all in a bottom-bearing black skirt and a pair of sexy black stilettos on the fold out cover. Styled by Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele, the mother of three seems more than confident channeling a retro 1980's-inspired look that totally reminds us of a gorgeous Meg Ryan pre-fillers. The exciting photo shoot with famed photographer, Mario Testino, is already generating buzz on the internet, a week before the issue hits stands on Aug. 30.
Seeing Stars: It looks like one of the latest fashion crazes is wearing stars! It’s fun, flirty, cheery and a nice way to show off your patriotism.

This must-have piece retails for $220 and is available at Lesters.com.
I have always admired the sparkling, exquisite designs that Judith Leiber has created for countless celebrities on countless red carpets for countless events and premieres! Glenn Close, Heidi Klum, Jennifer Lopez, Sophia Bush, Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift are just a few celebrities, models and actresses that have been seen carrying decadent Judith Leiber purses. Now, life can be your runway! I'm really excited about this new line of contemporary Leiber bags because it means that more of us have the option to enjoy something special from this timeless designer. Not to be without the certain dazzle that she's well-known for, each bag has an extra-special clasp at the top. Many are adorned with attractive crystals and stones! There are interesting textures that tie into the latest trends, but these bags are statement and investment pieces that can last a lifetime.
One of my favorite media personalities, Bethenny Frankel, is searching for models to take part in her Skinnygirl Solutions “Real Woman” Fashion Show at Macy’s on Fashion’s Night Out. The best part? She wants real women!
Bethenny Frankel is searching for three lucky ladies to model in her Skinnygirl Solutions Fashion Show, taking place at Macy’s Herald Square in Manhattan on Fashion’s Night Out. If you’re chosen, you’ll receive a styling session with a Macy’s fashion expert prior to the show, and get to keep the piece of shapewear you walk in. Plus, you’ll get to meet Bethenny who will be emceeing this exciting event. People travel from all over to experience "Fashion's Night Out" in New York City and now it's your chance to actually be a part of it! I think it's great that Bethenny created this new line of shapewear for all of the ladies out there! I had the opportunity to preview the collection and try some of the pieces on. They are both flattering and comfortable (key elements to smoothers & shapers). Obviously, because someone like Bethenny created the line, the pieces are also stylish and might I say, sexy!
