Moncler’s army of models at Gotham Hall, Saturday, February 9, 2013
I’m no professional videographer, but here’s my view from the front row at Carolina Herrera’s Fall 2013 show. I felt like I was in a dream!

Just a few seconds of what it was like to be there in person!
Seeing Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella on Broadway last night transported me back to my childhood. The magical set, pictured above, set the tone for an enchanted evening, while the uplifting story reminded me that dreams really can come true.

A cleverly carved pumpkin at Harvest Restaurant in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I wonder, can it be called a jack-o’-lantern if there’s a lobster carved into it?
This weekend, my husband and I drove to my family’s house in the catskills in hopes of catching the fall foliage and cooking a big meal in a big kitchen. We picked up a rack of baby back ribs from The Smokehouse of the Catskills on the way upstate and used Alton Brown’s recipe for braised ribs. The result was a succulent meat dinner followed by an amazing night’s sleep.
Last night in an epic heist of blockbuster proportion, seven paintings were stolen from the walls of the Kunsthal Museum in Rotterdam. The bold thief snagged hundreds of millions of dollars worth of paintings by Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Claude Monet, Paul Gauguin, Lucien Freud, and Meyer de Haan, leaving gaping holes in the museum’s 20th anniversary exhibition and a sick feeling in the stomachs of museum curators across the world.
The joke’s on the Thomas Crowne imitating thief however. The valuable works, including “Harlequin Head,” 1971, a painting made by Pablo Picasso just two years before his death, have all been registered as stolen and could never be sold on the secondary market.
The important questions that remain are who did it, how did they do it, and when will the movie come out in theaters so I can watch it??
A waiter shaving white truffles onto a plate of creamy risotto at London’s Zafferano on October 13, 2012
Until four years ago, I had a love/hate relationship with white truffles. My father, a New York restaurateur, exposed me to them at a young age, making me travel each fall to our house upstate with a canister containing a stinking white truffle on my lap. While the fowl, rancid stench nearly killed me every time, it was the taste of the white truffle shavings over my dad’s creamy white risotto that always won me over in the long run.
This weekend, my sister hosted an intimate 40th birthday dinner for my brother-in-law at a restaurant called Zafferano in London. To our delight, she surprised us all with a white truffle feast.
