Has Victoria Beckham quietly become a caped crusader for what smart, busy, chic women want to wear? The cape jacket and cuffed capris that I can't stop thinking about. You know how much I love a tailored capri and if it has a sky-high cuff and a pointy shoe attached, all the better. Her...

In a presser put out by the company, DB was quoted as saying: "Working with a team has always been a key part of my life and I found that to be the same when developing this range. Collectively with my design team we spent time working on the feel, fit and style to ensure the product is not...

Those eyelashes seemed to be the only faux thing about her. Loved her glammed-up, vamped-up look in Armani Privé, last night. And she's not naked - imagine that! A true reality star! Isn't it nice to actually see authenticity when so many others are talking about it? The whole lot...

CJ Chenier marches forth on the red carpet in black and white attire, fitting of a Love Boat captain. Diane Warren does a little '80s musical military. I can hear the strum of the guitar in the background. Speaking of '80s, Cyndi Lauper keeps up her quirky style, time after time. (Had...

In this corner, we have Amy Adams in Valentino – her Italian hustle number came draped with a little-seen cape. And in this corner, we have Lupita Nyong'o in Ralph Lauren, giving cover-ups the cold shoulder. Dynamic Duel. Oh, and in the third (first?) corner, we have the Queen of...

Apollo of Versailles Schiaparelli Cape, from the Metropolitan Museum of Art's collection. Khan's Deco design was breathtaking. Like I said, why follow, when you can leave a trail. A golden moment, captured in black and white. I have a few, but I am cape-able of loving a few more....

The editor who started it all – working at Harper's Bazaar for a quarter century, then taking the (Hermès?) reigns at a little publication called Vogue, had an eye on the world of culture, design, fashion and art – that changed the way we saw those things. Smoke and mirrors - a mirror of...

I have always loved the works of art created by Canadian milliner, Karyn Gingras of Lilliput Hats. An accessory like this upgrades your LBD tout de suite. They add the perfect amount of whimsy to the carousel of endless holiday parties. Peacocktail party? Perfect. And don't fall...
