fashion fix

I can’t wait for the J. Crew store to open up in Vancouver.  In the meantime, if you’re a fan of J. Crew, you probably know the creative director is Jenna Lyons.  Even people who aren’t that into fashion, heard about her when there was the story of her painting her young son’s toenails hot pink, which by the way ignited a huge clamor for the color.  Anyhow, here is a profile in NY Mag on her.

Elizabeth Taylor may be gone now but her beauty and her legend still live on.

Models? Food? Yes, on Lookbook Cookbook, models give recipes for some of their fave foods.  Quite a few of them seem to be dessert.

No one can deny that Anna Wintour is influential and was even the inspiration behind the book turned movie, the Devil Wears Prada but just how much influence does she really wield? The Wall Street Journal will tell you.
