The Granddaughter of Ernest Hemingway

Everyone is familiar with the works of Ernest Hemingway, but what about the lives of his offspring? Dree Hemingway, Ernest Hemingway's granddaughter, is a fashion forward chica who is making her own print on the industry. This 5'9 skinny mini has graced catwalks and the pages of vogue with her striking features.

Black is Back

by: Jade Jorda



It may be "2000 and late" but black lips are my current obsession. If you're gonna go with it, make your eyes as natural-looking as you can otherwise you'll over do it and look like one of the KISS band members. Use light silver, white or nude eye shadow, and a dash of mascara to complete the look. You can also use a little bit of eyeliner but keep it minimal.

NO!! YES!!


Here's a couple lipsticks that'll do the trick. ;-)


1.2.3.

1. Yves Saint Laurent Gloss Pur Black, $28, available at: www.sephora.com
2. Lipstick Queen Black Tie Optional: Black Sinner Shine, $22 available at: www.henribendel.com
3. Lancôme Color Fever Gloss in Piha, $48, available at: www.bloomingdales.com

Zadig et Voltaire Musique

by: Jade Jorda

To prove that fashion and music are in sync, the well-established brand Zadig et Voltaire has started to sell music exclusively online through their own website. The first of a series is Nightology by Playground, which has the similar indie-rock/electro sounds as Cut/Copy. To make that band even more special, the man behind the beats is Firouz Farman Farmaian, a descendant of the Kajar Dynasty that ruled Persia until the mid-Twenties. Well well, that ought to be royal. ;-)

available here.

Here's the music video of Nightology's "Maravillosa".

Sex and The City 2: The Movie

by: Jade Jorda

Yes! My favorite friends quartet is back and I am so excited! Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattral, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis star as the four inseparable, fashionable and remotely different friends (respectively) Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte in the sequel of Sex and The City: The Movie. If you loved the series and haven't seen the first movie, GO BUY THE DVD NOW! If you have never seen the series, GET IT NOW!! I highly recommend. Now enjoy the teaser trailer of the upcoming sequel (will be released in the summer) from www.reserveresult.com:


Who's excited about this summer ? Me, me, me, me, me! ;-)

----------------------------------

...and if that didn't put you in a sexy mood, you can go get your sexy fix at Voyeur. A club with an erotic S&M feel I've been hearing about from many people and I finally checked it out last night. I will definitely go back! The crowd was not the usual Hollywood trash and most of the people were relatively classy. I would recommend going on Mondays because there is enough people to have fun with and it's not a Friday night hassle. Topless Go Go dancers are putting on shows everywhere around the club. There's one hanging from a swinging chair, one dancing on stage, one in a glassbox, one rolling around above in a net, and maybe more that I didn't pay attention to. It's quite entertaining in there.

Voyeur
7969 Santa Monica Blvd.
Los Angeles, 90046
(310) 255 110
www.voyeur7969.com


You would think, by the name of the place, that it would be some sort of gentlemen's club, but trust me it's not and it's fun! Even for a girl. ;-)
