I idolize this woman. Her work ethic is unparalleled and what she and her brand stand for is powerful. Whether you want a career and/or kids is your choice, but I like what she says about identity. Up to you to interpret identity in your own way, but think about this one. Read more here.

Tonight, the 1% of everyone who is anyone in fashion/film/music/Silicon Valley/Wall Street (etc) is going to be on Fifth Avenue for the Met Gala to celebrate China: Though the Looking Glass, the Costume Institute’s Spring exhibition. Goes without saying, we all must bow down to the leading lady behind all of this, Ms. Anna Wintour. The LA Times about Ms. Wintour: “The event has become a testament to the unmistakable power of it’s co-host.” Yes, power.
I am as excited about the red carpet tonight as I am about the exhibit.

The Artist is Absent is a documentary that sheds light on the one and only Martin Margiela, the genius behind the Maison Margiela label. This 12 minute short is showing at Tribeca Film Festival this week and I am anxiously awaiting its full release on April 27th.
He is mysterious. He wants you to know him through his works of art. I get that. But, this docu will give us all a chance to learn more about the artist who keeps his personal life out of the limelight but manages to keep his label in the spotlight.
A preview of the short can be found here.
