Just say BOO!

Wearing clothes that wear you is almost never a good idea. Of course, there’s stage (that’s called a costume), an editorial photo shoot, and a very rare bird who knows how to pull off excess extravagance with flair without looking like the crazy cat lady. But for most, wearing outlandish fashion trends is an invitation…

Halloween Dog Costumes Are As Wild, Wooly, And Fantastic As Ever

You know that there is nothing we love more around here than a good dog costume and a fab parade and contest to show them off. It's that time of year again when New Yorkers put their best bark on and go a little experimental and zany in the name of their best friend.>> Try some ready made Pet CostumesThis weekend, the 20th Annual Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade in support of the First Run dog park in the East Village has its share of (un)usual suspects to steal the show all in the name of fun. The Master of Ceremonies was Snooki, see her below.Mom must admit that her boys pulled in a 1st place for their group for a total made-by-kid Robot Who Wrecks the City theme. I have to think that the poodle must have been a fit model in a former life from his his unbrideled patience for the decorating process.

Hamptons Gossip and the Best Early Halloween Costumes- It’s Two of a Strange and Dishy Kind

Brad Boles is still on the loose making and collecting gossip in the Hamptons before the summer season comes to an end. Brad did take some time away from the luxe set to fine-tune some Halloween costumes that are about to hit the stores. It may seem early for you to start thinking about what will be the biggest Halloween costumes trends but if you look in the aisle next to school supplies, you’ll see that Halloween costumes are already hitting the shelves in the big box stores! I always say, you better look good becuase ‘ya never when that costumed photo of you will reappear… Case in point: The costumed photo of Brad and me below. We still look super glam and crazy fabulous too! — S.H.Queen on Queen…Polo finished its sixth week with some Miami heat and that dreadful queen from the Real Housewives of DC. His name fails me, but between the skinny-leg jeans and the flash dance t-shirt, I thought my metrosexual friend Rob Siegel was going to loose it…and he did! I’m not sure if Rob has recovered from this all-to-recent episode. But, we have to talk about the DC queen’s hair thing: think Dionne Warwick! Dark back and frosted front piece combed over, looking a lot like a very fem version of James Brown. And what about shine? Honey, has he ever heard of blotting paper? I don’t recommend you guys out there try this look. It doesn’t work in the Hamptons and sure as h**l doesn’t work in DC! I will say though, that seeing Nacho Figueroa helped to sooth my nerves. He’s the sweetest guy on the planet and his wife Delphinia is so sexy. She rocked the look at polo!The beautiful morning talk show princess…The following day proved to be much softer on the eyes at The Hampton Classics. I ran into Kelly Rippa and her beyond-gorgeous husband, Mark Consuelo. The good thing about going out with a metrosexual is that there’s no competition when one vies for someone’s attention!Kelly is as funny in person as Mark is hot! I ran into them boating a few weeks back with Bravo’s very own Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper (I guess she likes her guests to have matching initials). Just think. They would never have to change the monograms. And how was your weekend!

Fashion’s Night Out from Giorgio Armani to Brad Boles

“The fabulousness never ends…Brad and Sharon having no shame taking their own photo at Valentino Dear Diary: Fashion’s Night Out started out as a must-see stop for me at the Giorgio Armani boutique to hear a special reading by Rosie O’Donnell from “Love, Loss, and What I Wore,” a new play by Nora Ephron and Della Ephron, based on the book by Ilene Beckerman. The evening instead turned into my own version of loving, loss, and what I wore!As I’m trying to find a cab (again), who comes trotting by but Brad Boles?! You may know him from the “The Real Housewives of New York.” But Brad and I go way back.Once upon a time a million and a half years ago when I was a fashion stylist, Brad and I would be booked as a team. I was the stylist, he did makeup, and North Rebis did hair when Brad didn’t do both. There was cast of other fashionable characters too who you probably know, but we’ll save that for another time. There was also lot’s of hijinks on the set and super fun nights out with some rather hilarious photos to prove it. Luckily, the bewigged photo of Brad and I here was from the excuse of a rather glamorous Halloween circa 1985.”
