Be The Wonder Woman You Can Be…


Who says that comic books are only for nerds?  Fashion mogul Diane von Furstenberg has teamed with DC Comics to produce a limited edition comic based on the designer’s life.  Proceeds from the $25 comic benefit Vital Voices a nonprofit organization that trains emerging women leaders, who in turn pay it forward to their entrepreneurial sisters here and in 150 other countries.

In a feature in this month’s Marie Claire von Furstenberg also offers a surprising revelation:

“So my mother, she was in her early 20s; she was arrested and went to a concentration camp—she went to Auschwitz and other ones for 14 months.  And went she came back, she weighed 40 pounds".

Whose That Girl?

Did anyone see last night’s premiere of America’s Next Top Model?  I was shocked to see a young woman who was featured in a popular photo taken by The Sartorialist back in Feb. 2008 was the same woman on ANTM last night.  The 25 year old Kentucky native and aspiring Top Model, Celia, worked in the men’s department at Bergdorf Goodman’s in NYC.

News just surfaced that celebrity stylist Chris McMillan was paid $56,000 per week to do Aniston’s hair while she was filming ‘Marley and Me’.  According to other celebrity stylist’s this fee isn’t out of line.  Fellow celebrity stylist Edward Tricomi defends the rate, "My days [at his salon] are more than $10,000," he admits. "It’s significant to walk out when you’re booking days like that." [NY Daily News]

That is one pricey week’s worth of blow outs!


Speaking of Hair…

According to the latest issue of Vogue, the newest trend in hair is the collar bone length.  It seems that Gisele Bündchen recently took the scissors to her own long mane (requiring a frantic call to and touch up by her hairdresser) and now some of the catwalks biggest names and Hollywood has followed suit.  Kate Moss, Helena Christensen, Christy Turlington, Gweneth Paltrow, Ann Hathaway and Ellen Pompeo have all been seen recently with a lighter look.

So now you know the story behind the scenes. 

That’s it for this week.  Have a great weekend everyone!!  doll-with-white-back
