See this by SUNDAY! Calder Jewelry

Necklace by Master welder/jeweler Alexander Calder

I saw this before I went to Africa and was STUNNED. Each and every piece was amazingly detailed. Could you imagine being the wife–or friend– of a jewelry master?

THE MET: ‘CALDER JEWELRY,’ through March 1. Concurrent with the Whitney Museum’s “Alexander Calder: The Paris Years,” this exhibition is the first museum show to focus on that American sculptor’s fanciful jewelry. The works in “Calder Jewelry” are made of the same materials as his wire sculptures — mostly brass and steel, with bits of ceramic, wood and glass — and are just as self-consciously clever. Among the highlights are oversize necklaces with flared and barbed shoulders, pendulous earrings worn by Peggy Guggenheim and the simple spiral of gold wire Calder gave his wife as an engagement ring.

And don’t complain about the Met’s price. The $20 donation is suggested. You can literally give 5 cents and they will let you in…

Taraji P. Henson’s Oscars After-Party Look


Fashion critics are saying Taraji P. Henson’s Oscars after-party look was an Oscar no-no. Though I would not have chosen this dress, I don’t think it’s a total loss. I love the color and fabric, but not the train. Taraji’s other look

I wouldn’t have chosen this dress either. Though she didn’t choose to-die-for dresses for the Oscars or the after-party, the necklace is definitely a real winner here, and so is Taraji, style aside.

Baby Phat: Urban Class


Top tiers, lovely lace, and more fine fabrics dominated the Fall 2009 runways of Baby Phat.

I’ll admit, Kimora Lee Simmons is one of my favorite designers because she knows the true meaning of street couture. She merges the two styles together successfully, creating a hybrid of urban luxe looks. My favorite from the fall line were the ultra feminine tops of lace layered over soft satins and sheer silks, paired with imperfect jean. Perfect! This look is for the young and funky as well as the grown and sexy. And as always, Kimora adds her signature opulence in the form of furs and jewelry upon jewelry to each look. It wouldn’t be Baby Phat without that touch of class.
