Fam Irvoll‘s Spring 2011 was  fantabulous, as usual! I love when colorful-meets-cute-meets-effed-up. I did a post a while back on Fam and I raved about her 3-D mouse sweater. She is definitely the best thing to come out of Norway. Actually, I don’t know anything that came out of Norway , except Vikings and that nasty fish dish called Lutefisk. So yeah, Fam Irvoll takes the cake. What I love is the models’ makeup looking like a Roy Lichtenstein comic book girl. Click here for directions from MAC to recreate that look. You’ll need instructions so you don’t look like the 186th  Duggar child. Anyway, I wish I could wear a conversation bubble on my head. I would keep several for any situation, like “Eff you” or “STFU” or “Can I haz your wallet?” or “Are U Serious??” or… I’ll stop. This way I don’t have to waste my voice, you know? And yes, I went to the School of Beeatch– my counselor was Naomi Campbell. I still don’t have the heart to throw my precious iPhone at anyone , though. *sigh* I love all these looks except the buck-teeth on the dress needs to get sanded down. I think buck teeth are suddenly in, though. Exhibit A. In any case, I wear them all!

Check out these teabags from German company, Donkey. Each teabag comes with a fashion figure  soaking their crotches in your tea.The team includes:

Karl Lagerfeld (will he call you fat?)

Jean Paul Gaultier (probably pissing in your tea and finds it hilarious!)

Donatella Versace (does it taste like hairspray, tanning lotion and ciggies?)

Naomi Cambell (will she throw the lemon back at you?)

Kate Moss (She prefers lots of sugar).

There are so many jokes (mostly inappropriate- MY FAVORITE!) involved with these teabags that I’m going to step slowly away and let your dirty little minds take over. In case fashion figures are not your cup of tea (oh, yes- pun intended!), try the soccer legends teabags, pirates, animals, and even royalty!  Eight Euros will get you a pack of five, which can only mean that you have to double dip to get your money’s worth in American dollars. Check out the site for other stuff including Porn Confetti (because we all need Porn confetti) and this – which I still can’t figure out what you’re supposed to do with it. I mean, is it a candle or something??

Swedish designer,  Emilie Steele, showed a magnificent knitwear show called ‘Towers and Pinnacles’ last month. I tried to find out about her , but my stalking skills have waned since I bore my son. Anyneedtoquititwithfacebook,  her collection was actually cool especially, the dress in front that’s shaped like a house. I like that. It’s like the only house I could afford! I would wear it all the time and say ‘wanna see my house’ and twirl around. People would think ‘awww, she’s being cute’, but that would REALLY be my house because I’m THAT broke. Those shoulder pads at the end look dangerous. That’s something Naomi Campbell would wear- because it’s dangerous. Or better yet, Grace Jones!

Sir Ian McKellen at DPA gifting suites

 

 

I had the pleasure and delight to attend the DPA Gifting Suite produced by Nathalie DuBois-Sissoko at the ritzy Peninsula Hotel in the heart of Beverly Hills, CA.

 

I have attended past DPA gifting suites for the Oscars, and Golden Globes in previous years and it seems every year it gets better and better. What makes DPA better than all the other gifting suites around town during awards season? It is DuBois-Sissoko’s attention to detail, most unique gifts and experiences and the magnitude of luxury that exudes from all of her suites throughout the year and throughout the world. She hosts suites in Cannes, France, Venice, Italy and Dubai during their respective film festivals creating a timely momentum for the hottest and chicest stars to attend.

 

This year’s Golden Globe suite boasted the whimsical, Austrian jewelry designer, HENRI J. SILLAM. His elegant creations included a delicious ruby encrusted, gold strawberry ring (my favorite!).  Some more fantastical pieces include a diamond and pearl encrusted swan, a deer necklace, frog brooches, and rhino rings all encrusted in rare and precious stones, like Black Diamonds, Green Persian Turquoise, and Lavender Jade. Some pieces at the suite were specially made for a special celebrity to wear on the Golden Globe red carpet.

Designer, EVA VARRO, unveiled their casual chic dresses in retro prints that Pucci would adore. Her fun, fresh designs have graced the bodies of many TV and movie stars, including Eva Longoria- Parker of ‘Desperate Housewives’.  Her collections are available at Nordstrom’s and select Boutiques. As well as being travel friendly, the dresses are made in the US using high quality slinky fabrics perfect for the beach, a day of lunch and shopping or dress it up with accessories for a dashing evening about town.

Ever hear of elixir of Quartz Crystal being incorporated into your daily skin regimen? SPHATIKA prides itself on this unique line of products for any skin type. These ‘high quality pure, natural ad chemical-free botanical products’ are available as facial cleansers, facial toners, milk bath oil, and an intriguing ‘gold finish serum’. You may view all their wonderful products

Online. If you are lucky enough to be in my favorite city in the world, New York City, SPHATIKA has a beautiful spa near Columbus Circle offering probably your most tranquil time in the city that never sleeps.

DPA offered a most unusual beauty treatment provided by LONGMI LASHES BY DANIEL.  Lash extensions that are so real that I couldn’t tell if they were real lashes on one his models. Hollywood’s most sought after lash expert, Daniel, has provided Naomi Campbell, Miss Teen USA and Shannon Tweed, as well as many more celebrities with lashes to die for. Once each and individual lash is applied by hand, they will last about 4 weeks. Well worth it for not having to risk the Tammy Faye effect with mascara.

 

One exquisite gift that is truly unique to DPA gifting suites is the fabulous Tahiti, French Polynesia vacation provided by PEARL RESORTS and LA TAHA’A private island and resorts. This remarkable exotic escape is a signature of every DPA gifting suite.

Other notables at DPA were PUPPERAZI, a super stylish boutique for the most chic dogs and cats, who also give a charitable 5% to fight against puppy mills. BAMBOO HUGS, a great eco-friendly line of bath towels made with one of the most sustainable sources, Bamboo- for babies and children. One of her creations includes a cat-hooded towel made of a cuddly, soft purple bamboo. Colorado designers, VAMP BAGSshowed off their animal friendly and Eco-friendly stylish handbags- my favorite was a red clutch with a bracelet attached, just so you never lose that pocketbook.

Another jeweler was present called HENDERSON DESIGN, which is designed and run by a mother and daughter from Houston, TX. They’re signature is being able to mix and match necklace strands of delicate gold and faceted stones creating the most personal, unique look of your choice. To go with the gorgeous necklaces, DPA introduced Cindy Renée Mathieu for SODALISCIOUS for enchanting handmade gowns perfect for the avant-garde actress walking the red carpet.

Ever wanted a shirt the exact color of the Mona Lisa’s eyes or Hyams Beach sand or the earth as seen from Apollo 17? French designer, BLUEBRETZAL specializes in those mythical colors translated into the most luxurious shirt you will ever own. The shirts are made from fair trade cotton mixed with either bamboo or cashmere for the softest touch.

 

As luxury is the focus of any DPA suite, beauty products were the highlight with treatments and products from the exclusive skincare line, NATURA BISSÈ with $1500 luxury gift boxes from their Diamond Collection; LEONOR GREYLTHE MASSAGE EXPRESS, along with SPHATIKA, and LONGMI LASHES BY DANIEL.

As I wrapped up my pampered visit to DPA’s elegant gifting suites, I left recharged, informed, and ready for my close up. I look forward to the next gifting suite that DuBois-Sissoko produces bringing talented new designers and unique products to the full attention of the Hollywood’s discriminating elite.
