KiptonART Rising 2010

Posted in Uncategorized by blogwing on 11/03/2009

Last night we attended the KiptonART Rising 2010 Finalist show at Saks Fifth Avenue. We are members of the committee and therefore showed up to support a cause we lend our name to. We don’t think it proper to put your name to an event and then not bother to show up.

So who was there? Who wasn’t there is better question. We walked in and immediately saw: Kipton Cronkite, Zev Eisenberg, Tia Walker, Melissa Berkelhammer, Sebastian Bland, David Gruning and Stephen Keefe. We then met up with Gillian Hearst Simonds and Christian Simonds. We checked out some of the art work and then started the serious socializing with Anisha Lakhani, Sarah Basile, Ally Hilfiger, Ted Cleary, William Heath, Kim Guilfoyle,Martin Dawson, Emma Snowdon Jones, Anabelle Vartanian, Catherine Forbes, Peter Davis, Jack Brian and finally a disco ball tie wearing Keith Lissner.

We usually attend this event and it is truly one of the most beautiful of the season. We will be in Art Basel this year so unfortunately we will not be able to attend. For those of you who are interested you should check it out.


Leighton Meester Brings Back Big Bulb

We first saw this look on Sarah Jessica aka Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City.  We hate to admit it but we are feeling Leighton’s flower more than Sarah’s.  Probably because it is a little more age appropriate for a teenager than a middle aged woman, just saying…

ACE Awards at Cipriani’s Honors Lady Gaga

Posted in Uncategorized by blogwing on 11/03/2009

Is it just us or does it seem the fashion world just throws awards out at the drop of a hat? To keep things in perspective, Lady Gaga has ONE CD, she makes numerous appearances in her knickers, now she is getting fashion awards? What happened to awarding continuing and longevity? Debbie Harry was around for a decade before she started getting lauded for her fashion sense. Madonna has been showing her bra and panties since Gaga was in diapers and a bib. Regardless, numerous high profile names showed up for the ACE Awards at Cipriani’s 42nd Street (interesting side note-Guiseppe Cipriani was quoted in Page Six saying he is not on the lam and does intend on returning to the United States-stay tuned).

Others at the event-presumably in their underwear-Robert Verdi, Marc Jacobs, Molly Sims, Hillary Rodha, Betsey Johnson and Mickey Boardman.
