The Fabulous and the Far-out at FASHION WEEK

There are a lot of idiosyncratic fashionistas on the streets of New York City.  I snapped a lot of them during Fashion Week Sept 2012……and had a lot of fun meeting them.

My friend Ruth………..96 and still dressing to her own drummer.

And my friend, Ilona.…….94 and always fun.  She is appearing on Broadway in November.

Mary ROSE……FASHION STYLIST……..certainly has her own style.

Love the bald head……love the robe.  I too am going bald……now I just need to get that robe?

I am sooooooo tired of the “DROPPED DRAWERS” look.

Tim Brown expresses himself every day of the year with a different look.

Must admit……….without the purple gloves it would be nothing.

Tziporah Salamon dresses like this every day………..each day being more fab than the one before.

Now we’re talkin’…….POLKA DOTS!

The “TWINS”…..wrapped in black garbage bags………..or…………but always fun.

SHE …. is always a knock-out.

Got her license plate………….but not her name.

Lynn Dell………..owner of “Broadway”………Manhattans most love boutique for the fabulous and the far-out clothes.

Lynn had her own fashion advice show on TV for 10 years.

Ilona Royce Smithkin………came to lunch on Wednesday….we had a glorius time.

He was my fave boy of the day.  Gotta love Kim.

I love the way she put it together.

An Alexander McQueen original………..or is it own fantasy?

The glasses….the hair……..the feather……..but the lace shirt makes it happen.

Armani can be yours too……….for $2200.  So this kid has a rich daddy!

There is a law in NY….Men can be”TOPLESS”….and so can women.  Some brave ladies are exercising their legal rights !

DIFFA………Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?

The New York Design Center created a sensational room at DIFFA’s Designing by Design.  “Guess Who”s Coming to Dinner”.   Designer Alexa Stevenson invited several design houses to choose two dinner guests that they would like to dine with…….in a glamourous haunted mansion kind of feel. ONE STIPULATION:   All of the dinner guests must be dead!

 ELVIS, …… MICHAEL JACKSON, ……  MADELEINE CASTELING……..MARILYN MONROE……..ANDY WARHOL……..CHANEL……….EMILIO PUCCI………. GYPSY ROSE LEE……….HIROSHIGE………. FREDDIE MERCURY……….TINTIN……… FARAH FAWCET…….. ELIZABETH TAYLOR………STEVE JOBS……… TONY DUQUETTE……… ALEXANDER MC QUEEN………… CLEOPATRA……….SALVADOR DALI.

My choice of two guests I would like to dine with [from this group] would be HIROSHIGE {because I own some of his art}……….. and TONY DUQUETTE………..a  costume designer and decorator of fantasy.  I love Tony’s whimsically baroque sets. What a fab and stimulating evening that would be.  And then I would ask Tony to redesign my terrace.

MERCEDEZ-BENZ Fashion Week……..Spring Fashions of 2012

These are the looks for Spring 2012………..and will be seen in the streets [and Clubs] of  New York……….and any other city in the world  where the women can afford them.

FIVE PAINTED LADIES

FASHION NIGHT OUT in New York was a roaring success.  1000 stores took part.  Down on 14th Street near the Alexandre McQueen Boutique……..I ran into these fabulous ladies.

Semi-nude and painted………”Walking Art”.

This Great Dane’s name is Titan-Harlequin…he has his own facebook site.

Titan-Harlequin Great Dane (3

This famous photographer was also shooting the hound….AND the ladies.

“Hey bud….enuf with the photos already.”

On their way up onto the Highline.

Love the eyes on her boobs.

These lovely “ladies of the night” were a delight for the eyes.

THE MAD HATTER

Dropped in at  Housing Works Thrift…………spotted  some “vintage hats”.

Minnie Pearl……eat your heart out!

So many to choose from !

Ragtime Tommie.

Don’t think I look my best!

Could have worn this to the Royal Wedding.

There are NO WORDS for this one !

A hat is a piece of magic………….so says Martha Sliter.

Alexander McQueen would have LOVED this one.
