Alexa Chung is the It-est It Girl

Photo: Joe Schildhorn/BFAnyc.com Being an It Girl takes a lot of work. There’s traveling, partying, wearing gifted clothing, and mass attempts on being downright fabulous. It would be hard being Alexa Chung, said no one, nowhere. The British beauty air kisses Karl Lagerfeld’s cheeks regularly and sits front row at nearly every major fashion show. She’s a [...]

Obama To Ease Cuban Embargo–Cigars To Follow!

Foreign relations are a bitch, man. Take the longstanding US trade embargo with Cuba. It’s not unlike New York’s old “no liquor sales on Sunday” statute. Every marginally sane person understands it’s an archaic absurdity—but what politician would have the testicular heft to stand up and call it out? Luckily, the current occupant of the [...]

Recalling Fellini’s La Dolce Vita at the Regina Baglioni

Earlier this year, the Café de Paris, on Rome’s once infamous Via Vittorio Veneto, was destroyed by fire. International newspaper headlines screamed with speculations of arson and organized crime involvement. (Back in 2005, the property, valued at approximately €6 million, was mysteriously “sold” to a barber for €250,000). But it hardly scandalized Roman society, who are [...]

Happy Birthday, Liv Ullmann! Take a Look Back on Her Incredible Life and Work

Best known for her visceral and beautifully vulnerable performances in Ingmar Bergman classics such as Persona, Cries and Whispers, Autumn Sonata, and Scenes From a Marriage, there’s always been far more to the actress than her piercing blue eyes. As both a brilliant artistic and intelligent filmmaker in her own right, Ullmann’s career has spanned [...]

Lily Rabe Set to Return to Tomorrow’s Mid-Season Finale of ‘AHS: Freak Show’

Photo courtesy of Owen Kolasinski/BFAnyc.com The always amazing Lily Rabe made her face known to us in the last seasons mutation of American Horror Story: Asylum. At first she played a nun possessed by the devil, and then as the third Conven season approached she dazzled us with her best Stevie Nicks impersonations and free-spirited Wiccanness. And now, she’s back, [...]

The Rise of the Moneyennials?

Courtesy of Money.net The influential Pew Research Report on Millennials lists three defining character traits of the generation: Confident, Connected, and Open to Change. Not surprisingly, “Money Hungry,” didn’t make the list. Nope, Pew pretty much parrots the lore that the next big generation harbors a positively Panglossian view of financial affairs. “Despite struggling (and [...]

We Tried It: Haven Spa’s Peach Smoothie, Er… Vajacial

Here’s the question–or one of them–can a spa treatment designed to pamper a small triangular patch of skin (that’s the area above your vagina, I’m talking about), be, in any, way, shape, or form, non-anxiety producing, and even relaxing? Oddly, yes. We live in a world in which, though I imagine it will seem strange to time-capsule [...]

Ten Reasons To Make Merry At The Waldorf And The Plaza

As expected in 2014, we’ve done all the DJ-whatshisface, emergingartist-whozit, designercocktail-whatever at the rotating “cultural” party that is our fave Downtown hotel hangouts. But it’s holiday time, and we’re unapologetically headed Uptown to swaddle ourselves in holiday cheer and attempt to wish away the particular stresses of another year of living in New-York-Bloody-City. It hardly [...]

Buon Natale! Behold The Most Fashionable Christmas Tree Ever

Despite being a significantly Catholic country, Italians are rather ambivalent about displaying Christmas trees. In fact, the decorations in general are quite more subdued than those one might find in America or Germany. Italians still think of it as a Christian holiday more than a commercial one–even as a significant portion of the populace considers [...]
