CAMPY WOMEN at the MET GALA 2019

“CAMP” was the theme of last nights GALA at the MET.

You decide if these women actually understood what “CAMP” means in the Fashion world.

 

 

Janelle Monases is the only woman who really understood what “CAMP” means.

The designer Christian Siriano designed her dress……. PICASSO was his inspiration.

LADA GAGA wishes you a MERRY CHRISTMAS

and……she wants to know……if you’ve been NAUGHTY or NICE……...

We can ask her the same question……….

LADY GAGA gone GOTH at MARC JACOBS Fall 2016 Collection

LADY GAGA walked the runway for MARC JACOB’S Fall Collection 2016.  Very GOTH…….very BLACK.  Lights flickered……soundtrack of bells…..and large creepy shadows trailed the models on the runway at the Park Avenue Armory.

I won’t describe the clothes as you can see them for yourself……….

just CLICK ON…….

You spotted LADY GAGA in her wild platforms.

PATRICIA FIELD is closing her iconic boutique.

 

After 50 years in the business……..Patricia wants to take it easy. She has worked on TV shows………..movies.  She owns the property so she is not being chased out by a greedy landlord.  She just plans to “cash in her chips” and live the good life.

Those of us New Yorkers who always thought we could never survive without her store…………well………we will just have to “suck it up” and go on.

Drag queens will feel the loss of her outrageous fashions.

Could you wear this home to MAMA??  Sure!  In New York…….. MAMA would probably already have it in her closet.

And now “Wonder Woman” will have to search elsewhere for her clothes.

Carrie Bradshaw [SarahJessica Parker…….from Sex and the City fame] was a “regular” here.

Lunch at SANTINA on the HIGH LINE

Santina is is a coastal Italian restaurant created by Mario Carbone……….[whose other restaurants I am not fond of]………. but, this new venture is a “hoot and a holler” on Washington Street…..at the foot of the HIGH LINE.

LOTS OF SEAFOOD>>>>>>>>LOTS OF GRILLING

The dishes are beautiful…..the plating is beautiful……..the dining room is beautiful.  When you are in this atmosphere……life is beautiful……….and I want one of those chandeliers for my apartment!

Lady Gaga showed up that night for dinner.

 

Lunch at JOANNE’S without Lady Gaga

It was ITALIAN RESTAURANT WEEK in NYC………..so we decided to give JOANNE’S TRATTORIA another try.  Lady GAGA bought the place for her dad…..and it is rumored that she sometimes eats there.

From the street the restaurant looks like a charming place for dining.

P1060674

This is the only glance we got of Lady Gaga.  A wall plaque.

P1060684

Starting with a glass of the house wine……….bode well.

P1060677

Nice bread basket…..but we weren’t served any!  Strange!

 

P1060683

The Trattoria has a new lunch menu.  Everything is $12.

 

P1060687

The best part of the meal was the ever flowing chilled tap water……tho sparkling was only $6.

 

P1060690

Our waiter was a charming young man………new at this game but trying hard.

 

P1060691

It is strange that the room has no personality……..nothing Italian  for ambiance.

 

P1060692

Yes, the dishwasher missed this bit of someone else’s meal on my fork.

 

P1060696

My “rare” hamburger was as hard as a rock.  The side of Mac & Cheese was delish……….  absolutely the best part of the meal.

P1060695

This was the special salad……….but the chicken was extra$$.

 

P1060698

Meatball parmesan………. rock hard and grey.  Donald ate it anyway.

P1060699

The “Justin Bieber” look-alike at the next table was bored stiff.  His Pizza Bolognese was all sauce and no pizza.  Weird!

P1060701

Coconut cake……….slipping and sliding….was right out the Betty Crocker Box.  We ate it all.  $12.

 

P1060702

Cafe Americano……….$4…….hot but no refills.

 

P1060705

So………ITALIAN WEEK……..and no sign of the PRIX FIXE $26 lunch.  will we return……….NO.  I paid with a $100 Gift Certificate………..which was at first rejected…….the waiter said it had already been cashed!  DUH!  How could that be when I had it right there in my hand?  My change was a credit for 34 cents.

 

 

 

MARGARITA

Margarita Pracatan.…….a Cuban singer with a divine accent.  She sings her own versions of pop classics.

P1040339

She does a one-woman musical comedy act featuring her own wisdom and songs.

 

P1040345

Her take on hits from Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Rihanna are hysterical.

 

P1040349

Lots of energy in those fingers.

 

P1040351

Her toes too………pump those pedals.

 

P1040379

Catch one of her CABARET SHOWS.…………they are irresistible

It was fun to meet her………..playing one of the 88 PIANOS  Sing for Hope.
