Ralph Lauren, Outside His 2015 Resort Show

Well, this was definitely my favorite shot of the day. Ralph Lauren exited his 2015 resort show impeccably dressed in his own label. It’s hard to deny his star power. Even Condé Nast editors are starstruck by him, especially when his son David charmingly introduces him by saying, “Meet my dad.”

Peche New Orleans

So what is it like to dine at the best new restaurant in the country? Thanks to our New Orleans in-laws, we paid a visit to Pêche in New Orleans just before it won the James Beard Award. Book your dinner reservation around the same time you book your plane tickets to New Orleans, and you too should have no problem getting into this friendly, democratic but still fabulous institution.

Eva Chen at Dior Cruise 2015

I have been struggling with what to do about crop tops. Memories of Jennifer Aniston in red carpet appearances past have clouded my judgment somewhat, because this generation of crop tops is not the navel gazing version that plagued us in the early 2000s. Instead the new crop tops are often paired with high waisted pants and skirts, revealing just the tiniest bit of sexy skin, as Lucky editor Eva Chen did so effortlessly at the Dior Cruise show. I also love her work clutch, the sort of bag you see so often on fashion editors now.

Olivia Palermo at Dior Cruise 2015

Olivia Palermo looked beautiful as usual at the Dior Cruise show on Wednesday. A Spanish style fringed bolero jacket is a great topper for evening over a sheer white top, but Olivia added a little edge to the outfit with a black leather skirt with a slit up one side.

Nina Garcia at Dior Cruise 2015

The fashion world turned out for the Dior Cruise show yesterday in Brooklyn. Nina Garcia, fashion-forward as always, sported one of my favorite trends for 2014: cropped, wide legged pants. They looked great in floral quilting with heels and a black top.
