oh that I could have this sculpture designed by Stella McCartney–I am now stuck on the idea of a recessed living room, plush with a lambskin rug, lucite table and this sparkly guy swinging over it.  Imagine the party?

the woman is a goddess.


“Lucky Spot” was on loan at the spot which inspired the piece, where else but Belsay Castle in Northumberland…

now featured in her new Las Vegas shoppe.

For the full interview –> here.

My fave of her responses:

On what she looks for in a guy: “I want a guy who is masculine, good with his hands and able to build stuff and who has survival skills. Facial hair is a big turn-on. Most of the kids I hang out with in New York are hipster arty types, but I like a stronger, more physically imposing man–like a lumberjack. I’m also into a little hair pulling. I like boys to be aggressive and allow me to be a little aggressive back.”

On her texting relationships: “I’ve been texting for a year with a couple of guys without ever going on a date with them. The other day I got a text from a boy, but it wasn’t hot. I mean, if you’re going to text me every day, you haven’t seen me for months and you’re trying to seduce me, you’d better spice up that text and make it more exciting than ‘How was your day? I hope you’re having a beautiful one.’ Sadly, I haven’t been doing a lot of kissing lately.”

I got my copy of Bazaar December a few days ago and only recently flipped through it…really, though, all the joy came from the cover shot of Lily Donaldson.  I mean…it’s so beautifully composed.  Has nothing to do with the baby leopard btw.  I’ll also be swiping up this lip color…

also got a bit of joy from this Lavin dress…

I’m currently obsessing over images of Anastasia…

as well as photo spreads she has styled.

The woman is an expert at rocking menswear…and I’m missing my bangs just looking at these…she may very well be the death of me…

This is beautiful and all sorts of sweet.  I don’t how Yoko survived.  As my good friend Sasha said, she’s a f*cking WARRIOR.

From the New York Times:

JOHN and I are in our Dakota kitchen in the middle of the night. Three cats — Sasha, Micha and Charo — are looking up at John, who is making tea for us two.

Sasha is all white, Micha is all black. They are both gorgeous, classy Persian cats. Charo, on the other hand, is a mutt. John used to have a special love for Charo. “You’ve got a funny face, Charo!” he would say, and pat her.

“Yoko, Yoko, you’re supposed to first put the tea bags in, and then the hot water.” John took the role of the tea maker, for being English. So I gave up doing it.

It was nice to be up in the middle of the night, when there was no sound in the house, and sip the tea John would make. One night, however, John said: “I was talking to Aunt Mimi this afternoon and she says you are supposed to put the hot water in first. Then the tea bag. I could swear she taught me to put the tea bag in first, but …”

“So all this time, we were doing it wrong?”

“Yeah …”

We both cracked up. That was in 1980. Neither of us knew that it was to be the last year of our life together.

This would have been the 70th birthday year for John if only he was here. But people are not questioning if he is here or not. They just love him and are keeping him alive with their love. I’ve received notes from people in all corners of the world letting me know that they were celebrating this year to thank John for having given us so much in his 40 short years on earth.

The most important gift we received from him was not words, but deeds. He believed in Truth, and had dared to speak up. We all knew that he upset certain powerful people with it. But that was John. He couldn’t have been any other way. If he were here now, I think he would still be shouting the truth. Without the truth, there would be no way to achieve world peace.

On this day, the day he was assassinated, what I remember is the night we both cracked up drinking tea.

They say teenagers laugh at the drop of a hat. Nowadays I see many teenagers sad and angry with each other. John and I were hardly teenagers. But my memory of us is that we were a couple who laughed.
