Take the la-di-da of The Wedding, add a little (okay, a lot) of OTT-addict ADR, and it seems everyone is suddenly fascinated with fascinators. They were top of mind (sorry) during the Little Shilpa show at Lakme Fashion Week recently, from the Summer Resort 2011 collection. The fascinator -...

Last night's Met Gala, celebrating the opening of Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty was an occasion to rejoice and reflect on the designer's contributions to the visual world. In a much-lauded exhibit curated by Andrew Bolton (some say his best project to date), and a night of fashion's best...

There are some things in life we cannot seem to get enough of. Ice cream and Uncle Karl would be two things that come to mind immediately. Well now, you can have a double dip, with Uncle Karl's latest career as an ad-mad man. It only seems fitting, after his many professions and creative...
