Seen and Heard at Fashion Week ’08

Posted by cher on October 7th, 2008

The Real Housewives of New York City’s Ramona Singer on meeting Governor Paterson: “He’s not as blind as he says. He didn’t have a cane or a dog when I met him and I was shocked. The way he acted, you would never know he had a sight problem.”

Governor David “No-So-Blind” Paterson.

Project Runway’s Santino Rice on mass fashion: “I hate trends. There are times I see a look that I like but it’s usually something I already thought of that I am pissed I didn’t do. I wish I had invented Crocs because every tacky f–king American has a pair.”

BOOOO. EWWWW. BURN THEM ALL.

Victoria Beckham and Jennifer Lopez at Marc Jacobs. Sometimes Posh scares the crap out of me. Especially when I saw that she was in People Magazine’s 100 Most Beautiful People issue for her new, ultra-short, ultra-creepy ‘do.

Nicole Richie and Kanye West at Marc Jacobs. He’s like a cross between Urkel and his alter-ego Stefan.

Jessica Simpson and Anne Hathaway. Random ass combination. Is Anne fasting until Raffaello Follieri gets out of jail?

Blake Lively. You know you love her. Xoxo

My beautiful colleague and dear friend Zulema George is opening her own store, Anavaa Kisasa, this Saturday, September 13th. This is a special day because not only is it her grand opening, but it is her birthday as well. This grand opening will be a fabulous way to celebrate her life and special talent as a designer. Zulema’s creations are a personal reflection of her unique style and eye for colors, lines, and versatility that every woman desires.

Her store will include her own handbags, and thanks to other designers’ additions, after you choose the perfect handbag for yourself, you can pick an amazing dress and piece of jewelry to accompany it. (And guys, this store is for you too – she offers men’s clothing as well!)

Under my Nubrella, ella, ella

Posted by cher on February 26th, 2008

DailyCandy was kind enough to inform me of a new invention called Nubrella – a bubble-like shell that protects you from the rain. It frees up your hands so you can chat on your cell and even eat a sandwich, all while staying dry as you stroll through a hurricane. You no longer have to worry about the wind flipping your umbrella inside-out or possibly being sued when your umbrella spoke pokes someone’s eye out.

According the website, this is the story behind the invention of Nubrella:

“Back in December of 2002, Alan Kaufman (inventor and founder) was standing in one of his wireless stores in lower Manhattan. On this day the weather was very windy, rainy and down right miserable. Mr. Kaufman began to observe people’s umbrellas inverting and the constant struggles to maintain their umbrella in the proper position. It was at that moment an image popped into the mind of this inventor. Immediately he ran over to a desk and drew that image and thus nubrella was born!”

For $59.99 it sounds like a fabulous product that will make your life easier and dryer, right? Oh wait, I forgot to show you what it looks like.

Ok, so for $59.99 your life will be easier, you’ll be dry, AND you’ll be the target of ridicule! Seriously, if you walk down the street ensconced in a bubble, everyone will make fun of you. If I have $60 to waste anytime soon, I’m going to buy one and blog about the stares/heckling/harassment that I incur.
