Most Stylish Blogger Award and 7 Things You Didn’t Know About Me

Award Season Starts Early Thanks to Jewels from the Roving Stove . Plus, my picks for The Most Stylish Bloggers!Thank you, thank you to the gorgeous and talented Julie Anne Rhodes, aka Jewels from The Roving Stove for the Most Stylish Blogger Nomination!I'm more than flattered to get the thumbs up for constantly amusing you with the Impromptu Madness videos that Brad Boles and I have so much fun working on. If we had our own TV talk show (hint, hint out there), we would love to have YOU as our resident cooking expert!In lieu of an acceptance speech, part of the the Most Stylish Blogger nomination is to reveal seven things that you did not know about the stylish blogger. The other part of the award is to nominate seven other stylish bloggers.In no particular order, here are my nominations for the Most Stylish Bloggers:1. VagabondNycVintage clothing gurus Andrea Perrini & Naveed Hussain are the real deal when it comes to spot on fashion assessments. The two are like a walking fashion history book with a very stylized edge, and that's what makes editorialized vintage clothing shop and blog so distinctive. The VagabondNyc's are part of our Contributor team. 2. EyePreferParisRichard Nahem left New York for Paris and decided to do what he does best, go to the most divinely unique places and tell you about it! His customized walking tours of Paris are brought live to his blog. Richard is my oldest friend and a team Contributor. Oh, he also stretches a mean pair of shoes but that should have gone under things that you don't know about me. 3. IWantToBeHerAndrea Linnet does what we all secretly do. She sizes up a fab outfit, fantasizes about being that girl for a moment, but then she tells you where to get the goods. If Sybil was chic, she would live on I Want To Be Her! Andrea is the co-founder and former creative director of Lucky Magazine. 4. Humor ChicaleXsandro Palombo's daily society portrait blog is about as tongue in chic as an illustrated cartoon about fashion, style and all it's glamourous players could ever be! Highly addictive satire and very on the mark. 5. Marie ForleoI thought Marie was so spunky from taking her fitness classes at Crunch & find her upbeat, down-to-earth, girl power motivation to make each woman live rich, happy and hot totally inspiring!6. RedCarpet-FashionAwards.comCatherine Kallon has an outstanding photographic fashion memory, bar none! Do you want to know which celebrity wore what and where to get much of it, she's your girl!7. DoIHaveLipstickOnMyTeeth.comKim White is a make up artist who knows how to put the fun in beauty. Whether it's Mugshot Monday where beauty violators are brought to justice or her Bathroom Beauty videos, you'll get your gorgeous on and leave with a smile… and that's the best beauty bonus around.Honorary 7+. Julie Anne Rhodes, Jewels from The Roving Stove so shoot me, I'm nominating Julie Anne back! No only is she gorgeous, glam and totally the real deal but she's the downtown girl's Nigella Lawson without the finger licking.

Bianca Jagger Rocks Roberto Cavalli Like A White Horse

I’ll Have What She’s Having: I’ve been mesmerized by Bianca Jagger’s style since Studio 54. This is post kismet… or some odd coincidence of If You Could Read My Mind.Just as Brad Boles and I were reminiscing about Disco Sally and Studio 54, this photo of the eternally gorgeous Bianca Jagger, dressed in a green caftan by Roberto Cavalli, turns up in my inbox!Please Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood but as a Native New Yorker, 54 and Disco Nights were part of my coming of age.Enough tired Studio 54 music puns, but it is hard for me to not make the association as seeing Bianca on the Studio 54 dance floor or lounging on a sofa are iconic style moments that will stay in my mind forever.

Forget Worst Dress, Miley Cyrus Wears the Stupidest Dress We’ve Seen In a While

We really hate to mean because she is still young and have to admit that in some odd way this outfit is better than a pole dancer’s getup. So let’s just think of this as a fashion courtesy.Afterall, shouldn’t friends tell friends when they have toilet paper stuck to them?At last night’s AMA Awards, Miley Cyrus walked the red carpet in what appeared to look like a mega roll of toilet paper that gathered up in her undies and unrolled itself into a infiniteless train down the the red carpet.We understand that it is the American Music Awards and Miley probably wanted to look a bit more out there, but did she want to look flushable?All we know is that if toilet paper can have softness done right, this dress was done very wrong.Wouldn’t you tell your friend when some TP is stuck to her shoe or her dress is caught in her undies?We would.Let’s just hope she didn’t have spinach for dinner… who would check her teeth?

A REALM is a dominion of a monarch or other sovereign ruler.It is also happen to be the name of the new high fashion boutique that just opened in the heart of New York’s SOHO at 98 Greene Street by Randi Jacobson.The idea of the boutique came to Randi after being unable to get access to less known trendy designers that dwell outside of US.Jacobson decided to represent them in New York and establish her own REALM where she rules fashion.The store is spacious and eclectic. Last week there was an official opening fit to a queen: from the East there was Olga Rakhova a Russian supermodel, from the west Alexandra Richards, the daughter of one of the Stones named Keith, she provided the music for the party.

Fashion Week Roundup- Best of New York, Spring 2011

Naveed Hussain has been taking a breathe and pondering New York Fashion Week- not as piece by piece show, but what stood out above the NYFW fray and complexities of the week. — S.H.We’ve been doing a lot of whining at the pace and scale of fashion in this day and age of globalism and an unsteady economy.Fashion today has become a world-wide beast, it’s everywhere, and isn’t that a good thing? Shouldn’t this mean we are all sitting at home with a closet full of the best we can buy? Okay well, that is possible, but we think it’s coming at a great cost in the long run.Most importantly, there is too much fashion too fast.Fashion is now rotating on a two month scale and frankly, by the time the items hit the shelves, we cannot even remember them. There was a time when we could spot something a mile away and tell you it’s label.Today, we look at the calenders each season and cannot pronounce half of the names on it, and now you can supposedly buy fashion on the Home Shopping Network & at J.Crew. This was not possible ten years ago and it is still not today.>> MORE: Fashion Shows and Runway Reviews
