Hot pink just rocks! This past Thursday morning, I listened to Maxwell Anderson— Director of the Dallas Museum of Art, Gabriel Ritter—The Nancy and Tim Hanley Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art, and Eva Respini—Associate Curator at MOMA articulate full disclosure on artist Cindy Sherman and her enlightening disposition, at the exhibition preview at the Dallas Museum of Art.

Ask for a character reference on Sherman, and you will become bemused with the utter array of eccentric characters that she has portrayed throughout her career. The exhibition, a huge success in New York is now exhibiting in Dallas replete with macabre and perplexing portraits of insidious characters that represent the very cultural identity of today’s pop culture.

The Founder’s Cut: vbeauté, in it to win it.

Lifestyle Chat: I interviewed Julie Macklowe founder of vbeauté back in December, and finally posted the story vbeauté: The ‘It’ Kit on PinkMemo this week. Evidently cloning oneself is still not available, so yes; it took a month to get this published, oh well. Better late than never!

Brian Bolke owner at boutique Forty Five Ten asked me to meet with Julie and sample her new beauty line vbeauté. So I headed to the boutique with Starbucks in hand, iPad ready, and Julie and I got beautifully acquainted.
