On Wednesday evening, all I could think about was how I would love to visit the mothership—Apple. As a mac user for 15 years I didn’t need to be asked twice if I wanted to attend the pre-screening for the movie JOBS, featuring Ashton Kutcher as the visionary, entrepreneur Steve Jobs.
For the last five years, I’ve supported the crazy shopping frenzy that happens throughout Dallas and the metroplex every Fall, and now that PinkMemo rests deep within the Internet cemetery, I’ve decided that I will continue to support my favorite charities—especially Partners Card that benefits The Family Place.
I couldn’t attend this event, but I am happy to share photos of all the charitable peeps and friends that celebrated the 21st Annual Partners Card kick-off party at Galleria Dallas on June 5th. This year, co-chairs Annika Cail, Katy Duvall and Sara Friedman will face the challenge of beating last year’s $1,115,854.00 achievement, no small feat I might add.
February seems like a bygone era, once a fleeting moment of New York fashion week hysteria, hindered by the drudgery of blizzard Nemo. But, one cannot complain too much, with a schedule of shows saved on my iCal, stiletto boots switched out for sensible ice-breaking, slush-stomping Burberry wellies, I was not going to miss a show.
Its hard to get into shows, it’s virtually impossible to attend with a friend, but as luck would have it my good friend Pamela Martin Duarte invited me to attend the Jason Wu show as her guest.
Born to be King, and third in line to the throne as the 43rd British monarch, it will be quite a while before newly born; HRH Prince of Cambridge George Alexander Louis takes the throne as King of England—Charles and William still have much to do!
The Haute Couture Fall 2013 shows unveiled in Paris this week amidst Chanel announcing the date for the Métiers d’Art show in Dallas. Every Chanel swooning fashionista will be chasing the hottest invitation in Dallas this century on December 10.
Wearing his directorial chapeau, Karl Lagerfeld plans to mesmerize the audience at the Métiers d’Art show with a mini-movie, which he begins filming mid-July in Paris. Geraldine Chaplin (daughter of Charlie Chaplin) will portray Ms. Chanel with actors Rupert Everett and Arielle Dombasle taking small parts. The mini-movie will depict the successful arrival of Coco Chanel to America in the mid-fifties, (note quote from Karl in my announcement post earlier this year) which Lagerfeld describes his technique as “old Technicolor—like Paris photos.” The excitement and anticipation is simply exhilarating, palpitating….I could on…
Watch this behind the scenes video taken from the Paris Edimbourg Métiers d’Art 2012/13 show, last year held in Scotland.
Dallas is ready for a monumental treat of decadent proportions. Watch the fur fly for this invitation!
Copious amounts of champagne overflowed at the Veuve Clicquot bar on the terrace of Arlington Hall to celebrate Derby Day at Lee Park in May. The philanthropic professionals at Lee Park Junior Conservancy certainly know how to great dressed every year for the annual Day at the Races—this year themed “Run for the Roses” was a tribute to honorary chair Caroline Rose Hunt.
Men arrived in dapper suits and donned hats and bowties, and the ladies looked lovely in summer dresses and hats of all proportions, especially fascinating fascinators. I attended as a “Best Hat” judge, along with my fellow judge cohorts Blake Stephenson, Rachael Abrams, and Cynthia Smoot, and mingled through the crowd critiquing each stylish ensemble.
