With Diana Vreeland, who Liberman fired as Editor-in-Chief at Vogue

On Thursday night, I was part of a panel discussing the life of Alex Liberman, who was Vogue's art director for twenty plus years and then the editorial director of Condé Nast for another thirty-two years. I met Lucy Sisman 30 years ago when I worked with her designing the first issues of Paper magazine and she was later my boss as Allure‘s ... See the Rest

Video thumbnail for youtube video Drone's Eye View: Trust. You NEVER Seen Fireworks Like This Before! - World of Wonder

Well, I missed the fireworks in New York City Friday night, I was invited to a rooftop party but I couldn't be bothered to drag my ass out. The Macy's (televised) Fireworks have been on the Hudson River years now but (I guess in fairness) they will go back and forth from the East Side to the West Side. Well, that won't matter anymore. THIS the ... See the Rest

Erykah-Ba-Don’t!: Badu Tries To Steal An On-Air Kiss

BaduDiaz

Erykah Badu tried to kiss her way onto a New York TV on Friday, but got the old "push-back". For some reason, the singer snuck into the shot while Pix 11 news reporter Mario Diaz was doing an on-air on Shia LaBeouf's recent arrest for disorderly conduct. Badu sneaked (snuck?) into the frame wearing a giant white hat and a big grin but was pushed ... See the Rest

As you may know, the Whitney retrospective of Jeff Koons is the last exhibit to be mounted at the Breuer-designed, brutalist location.

The first thing I noted when arriving last night ... See the Rest

For the last commuter rail bar car in the US, it's the end of the line. Last night, the 7:34 train left from Grand Central Station to New Haven – that bar car’s final ride. The cars, which have dwindled to one or two a day at most, are now gone, as the rail line continues its switch from the old M2 cars to new M8s. Built by Kawasaki Rail Car of ... See the Rest

Art-Tee: Visionaire & The Gap Team Up At Frieze

gaptee3

Yes, yet another artist collaboration. I've done them myself and I'm getting a bit bored of the idea – but this one is affordable and looks cool. The Gap (yes, THAT Gap) and Visionaire magazine are reuniting again, after last December's Art Basel Miami Beach, for Frieze Art Fair which opens on Randall's Island this week. The collection includes ... See the Rest

The first US cat café is up and running and by all accounts, it's a hit. Two hour lines to get in yesterday for all the pussy your can get your hands on. It'll entertain both cat and coffee lovers from 10 to 7pm until it closes this tomorrow, April 27th. I'm allergic so I won't be heading over to 168 Bowery to visit the kitties, but you can. If ...
