[Mischa Barton living "The Beautiful Life" straight out of rehab. Photos via Getty] Models pretending to be actors or actors pretending to be models, in NYC the lines are often blurred, and does it really matter anyway? A constant? The desire to spend time shopping and sulking in the streets of Soho. Ashton Kutcher knows this, which is why he knows there is no better place in the world to shoot scenes for his upcoming show "The Beautiful Life" (set to hit the CW Network this fall). The cast was spotted filming yesterday. More photos below... More»
If you've never heard of Topshop, it's time to get your act together. The British retailer has locations throughout Europe, Asia, and the Middle East--and New York City will be added to that list come this fall when a Soho flagship store has its grand opening. Personally, I discovered Topshop while living in Dublin this spring, where the store was often described (by me) as "three floors of heaven." I was so addicted to their clothes that once, on my way to the cash register to return an ill-fitting swimsuit, I actually had to shield my eyes from the adorable spring collection to avoid further overspending. You see, there are so many things to love about Topshop: More»
Last night the House of Campari hosted an evening for the exhibition "Defining a Moment: 25 New York Artists" in SoHo. The doors opened at 7:30 and curator Simon Watson gave an exclusive walkthrough of the exhibition for members of Artlog. St. Vincent, performed at 8:45 follwing a DJ set from Cat Hartwell, lead singer of Holy Hail and formely of Fannypack. During the set St. Vincent made a point to tell the audience to actually check out the art, which was extremely necessary as I myself notice many people do not look at what an event is about and head straight for the free alcohol!
Yesterday, I journeyed to Soho and went to Moss for the first time. Needless to say, the store put me in sensory overload. The two-floor gallery-esque store has an incredible amount of custom designed furniture and amenities, all done up in an unconventionally funky and intricate fashion. Some of the pieces are just absolutely incredible, ranging from 900 pound intimidating solid boudoirs to a set of plates with various facial expressions on them.
The proof is in the glass; 140 proof that is. Last night rockers, downtown royalty, models, free lovers and Absinthe groopies gathered at Gallery 151 on Wooster St. to fight against the fight AGAINST drugs (LOVE that!). The Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) sponsored the so called Absinthe Legalization Celebration which was a total hit. The DPA believes that “the war on drugs is doing more harm than good”. Keeping in line with “what you resist persists”, the DPA is actually smart. Don’t fight the negative, embrace the solution. And just what is the solution: not punishing people for what they put into their bodies, but only for the harm done to others as a result of putting substances in their body. So what does this mean? BREAK out the Crack Pipe!! Probably not; after all, this was just a classy party for Absinthe.
