The Getty | Herb Ritts L.A. Style

One of my favorite portraits featuring 90's top models: Stephanie Seymour, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Tatjana Patitz, and Naomi Campbell.  

If you are a lover of high fashion, bold architecture, and black and white photography; I strongly urge you to make a visit to the Getty Museum for late photographer Herb Ritts, L.A. Style exhibition featuring a lifetime of his brilliant and iconic work showcasing until September 2.

Style Spotlight: Atlanta de Cadenet Taylor

Atlanta is the type of It-girl that oozes more style in her left pinky than we would ever have in our entire existence. Not to sound impudent-but when you call the bassist of 80's pop band Duran Duran, dad, famed photographer Amanda de Cadenet, mom, and co-founder of Juicy Couture Gela Nash-Taylor, stepmom-it's undoubtedly a given you were blessed with fashion flowing in your veins.

Art Exhibit | A Distant Winter

Last night I was suuuper excited to go check out the opening exhibition for 'A Distant Winter' at the Phone Booth Gallery in Long Beach. Since the gallery is located right by my house, we decided to take a nice, evening stroll over there to check out the artwork and meet some of the amazing, talented artists.

Fashionable Staycation: Planet Blue

Staycation: A vacation spent in one's home country rather than abroad, or one spent at home and 
involving day trips to local attractions.

Inspired by Planet Blue's summer lookbook and with the official kick of summer, it's time to start thinking of some fun staycation ideas. No need to worry about what to pack or sit in paranoia at the airport fretting that you forgot to pack your iPhone charger. Instead, venture out to other cities in your state, explore new scenery right in your own backyard, learn to surf, or do something that you'd never, ever do before.

Love our Earth: Beach Clean-Up

Today I participated in our City's monthly beach clean-up volunteer program. It's so important for us to take care of our planet; whether it be riding our bike instead of driving, composting instead of trashing, switching to reusable water bottles and bags, or simply turning the lights off in your home when you're not using it.  I urge everyone to educate yourself on ways you can diminish your carbon footprint on this Earth. We are all renting this space on Earth for a limited time and we should all do our part to make our planet a safer, healthier, cleaner environment for the future.

Best Dressed: Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston can do no wrong in my eyes, and she proved it once again at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards that she's still America's Sweetheart. Clad in a leather Valentino one-shoulder LBD paired with black Giuseppe Zanotti heels, toned physic, glowing skin, and sleek-straight hair; the actress took home the golden popcorn for new category of Best On-Screen Dirtbag Award for her role as Julia, a physically aggressive, sex-crazed dentist in "Horrible Bosses."
