Dior Cruise

Raf Simons showed the Dior cruise 2016 collection in Pierre Cardin’s bubble house which is tucked into the cliffs above the French Riviera. I love this pic from Virginie Mouzat’s Instagram account.

On My Mind

Closet Clean Out

Hermes Birkin

I love the fickleness of fashion—in, out, in, out, in, out. Just last year, I was ‘over’ the Birkin but, now, it looks kind of good again.

It all started when I found a moth in my closet (any advice on this would be much appreciated) and decided to take everything out. In the process, I’ve unearthed items that I don’t currently wear but, hold on to. My Birkin falls firmly into that category. In a moment of synchronicity, I saw these pictures on Self Service the same day that I started my closet clean out. Maybe it’s a sign.

My Super-Duper Wish List Topper

Verdura

I may not want a gift from my husband on Mother’s Day but, we do have a big anniversary coming up and, for that, I’d like something special. A Verdura Curb-Link Bangle tops my super-duper wish list. The small size would be lovely stacked with my watch and other bracelets.

Made With Love

My clever daughter makes me the best cards for Mother’s Day, I’ve kept them all. We have a homemade-presents-only rule and I don’t expect anything from my husband, I’m not his mother. Lobster rolls and a long walk are all we’ve planned for today.

Happy Mother’s Day everyone!

Happy Birthday

Linda Evangelista

One of the original supermodels, Linda Evangelista, is 50 today. Our careers were closely intertwined all those years ago and she gave me my first French bull dog, Otto. Linda wasn’t just a supermodel, she was a superstar, one of the very best.

My Paris Dream

Kate Betts

When Kate Betts came to Vogue in the early ’90s, Anna Wintour tucked her into a tiny office next to mine and asked me to welcome the new fashion writer. Kate had just come from Paris where she had been the associate bureau chief at the fashion industry bible, WWD. Smart and pithy, the ambitious new editor and I did not, despite our close proximity, become good friends until years later when I went to work with her at Harper’s Bazaar, where she was the editor-in-chief. The brief stint with Kate at Bazaar was the happiest time of my magazine career.

Paris in the late ’80s-early ’90s was the epicenter of the fashion world. I went often to scout models and buy Azzedine Alaia pieces from Azzedine himself. After reading her new memoir, My Paris Dream, I now realize that Kate had been at the forefront of all the seismic changes that were taking place in the industry at that magical moment in fashion history. It was a time that “saw a changing of the guard—from Yves Saint Laurent and legendary Paris couturiers to the explosion of street style that gave rise to a new generation of talent: Martin Margiela, Helmut Lang, John Galliano, and Christian Louboutin, and from fashion as an industry steeped in tradition and craftsmanship into big business.”

A poignant coming-of-age tale, in My Paris Dream Kate shares why she was so determined to live in Paris post graduation, her apprenticeship at WWD to the fashion arbiters of the day and, most importantly, how she became one herself.

New Shades

Tom Ford While on the topic up updating summer items, I could use a new pair of shades. My friend Lisa bought these Tom Ford Carla sunglasses and they look sensational on her. Can I be a copycat?

Chic & Sleek

I wore a version of these point-toe flats in the ’90s and they look fresh again, today. Simple and bit elegant, a pair would take my summer run-around uniform up a notch.

It’s no secret that I’m a green fiend—in my home and in my closet, it’s one of my favorite colors. I’m on the hunt for a piece in a rich, dark shade.

Malgosia’s hair and makeup are lovely.
