Sir Marc Jacobs

Yes you read it right, designers Marc Jacobs and Nathalie Rykiel were honoured with knighthoods by France's Order of Arts and Letters. Marc is recognized as the artistic director of Louis Vuitton and Natalie as the president and creative director of the label started by her mother, Sonia Rykiel. Culture Minister Frederic Mitterrand presented the two with the honour, praising their contributions to the fashion world.
The Order of Arts and Letters is an Order of France, established in 1957. Its purpose is to recognise the contributions to the arts, literature, or the propagation of the fields.
You may be interested to know that Marc did not wear his typical kilt to the ceremony, but opted for a dark blue business suit.

Directorial Debut

One of the loves of my life, Mr. Tom Ford has made his directorial, writing and producing debut in the new film A Single Man. To which he got Golden Globe nominations in the following categories: Best Performance by an actor in a motion picture, Best performance by an actress in a supporting role in a motion picture, and Best original score. Although the film didn't win any, getting three nods for a debut is not too shabby!!

Hello lover

Will you see A Single Man?

Closet Raider

I love snooping in other peoples closets!..with their permission of course. I was browsing on the internet and came across some celebrity closets. Wouldn't they be the best? I have 3 closets designated for clothes, but they have 2 or 3 ROOMS. Here are some snaps of a couple celeb clothing gallaries. Rachel Zoe:

Paris Hilton:Eva Longoria:

Christina Aguilera:

Personally, I would either go for Rachel Zoe or Christina's closets if I could choose. Rachel is so fashionable but Christina is very old Hollywood glamour. It would be tough! But, I know I wouldn't choose Paris' closet, too many tight, short and hoochy clothes for me!

Whose closet would you rather raid?

Rachel Zoe

Christina Aguilera

Eva Longoria

Foxy Lady

Beckham is out and the Fox is in! This message hits the news as the new ad campaign for Armani underwear and jeans hits magazines today.

I will say that I am a bit disappointed that my girl Victoria got the boot as the face of Emporio Armani, but after seeing the new campaign I do love the switch from hard and edgy to sultry seduction. I have always thought that Megan Fox was hot. Back when she was on the sitcom Hope and Faith I always wondered, why is this girl on here? When is she going to realize that she is too gorgeous to be on this show? Not long after the show was cancelled she was staring alongside Shia Lebeouf in transformers and was the sexiest woman ever on the red carpet. Because of this I was not surprised when I heard that she was going to be doing an ad campaign for Armani underwear. The debut today of the campaign was no disappointment. The spread is great. Very sexy, very alluring. Megan always has this hardness about her, but she was able to leave that behind in these photos.

Tie Me Up

I was taken cross-country skiing for the first time yesterday! It was actually pretty easy and fun once you get the rhythm of pushing and gliding down. Being a down hill skier myself, I thought cross-country skiing would come naturally to me, but I didn't take to it like a fish in water. At first I didn't like that your heels moved, or that you couldn't use your bindings to steer. It took me 1 hour to go 1.63 km up and down the hills, but by the end I was doing pretty well! I will be back tomorrow for the 3km trail...maybe I should pack a lunch.
Anywho, while not shimmying along the ski trails, I busied myself trying to make a tie-belt. I love tie belts because there are no holes! It doesn't matter how big you are, you can always make them fit. I also love them because they can potentially go with anything from outter-wear to fancy to casual. Here was my end result:
