Music Notes. GRAMMY 'Rewind' To 30th Annual GRAMMY Awards

In the two weeks leading up to The GRAMMY's Nomination's concert which will air on CBS on Dec. 1 at 10 PM ET/PST, the academy will highlight special moments in the history of the show. It was nice to revisit that year from not only because it's the year I won 'Best New Artist', but to be reminded of the great company I was in musically. Releases and nominees that year ranged from U2 and Michael Jackson to Whitney Houston, Terence Trent D'Arby, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Prince and Paul Simon.

A Touch of Lace. Update Your Holiday Look

Nine West

A great way to add a bit of elegance to your evening or holiday party look is a pair of lace pumps; currently a trend in fashion though actually quite timeless. Lace shoes are available at various price points. The Nine West 'Expoze' peep toe is a current bargain for under $50.00. I'd wear any of these with either a simple cocktail dress or leggings and a great top. You could totally wear lace pumps to even to dress up a pair of dark wash jeans. Elevate your style and always wear what works best on you!

Couture In Manhattan. Lanvin For H&M - The "Haute Couture" Show

I loved watching this presentation of "Hearts H&M Collection" from Alber Elbaz.  Full of whimsical Parisienne chic, there are so many looks and pieces I'd rock. The Pierre Hotel in Manhattan last night was indeed the place to be.

Du Juan For VOGUE China Beauty

I'm a longtime admirer of the 50's make-up aesthetic, especially the strong brow and mouth. Some of my most memorable looks channel that era, because I always want to keep things classic - this was true for me even in the 80's.

Ralph Lauren Celebrates With 4-D Light Installation

This seems like a pretty spectacular way for designer Ralph Lauren to celebrate the 10th anniversary of it's U.S. e-commerce business and the launch of its e-commerce site in the UK. I would have loved to see this in person this past Wednesday.
