ABOUT THE CARLTON HOTEL

The Carlton, an Autograph Collection hotel, blends old world luxury and Beaux-Arts flourishes, with stylish modernism. The Carlton hotel is managed by Gemstone Hotels & Resorts, LLC, and features one of the city’s most beautiful hotel lobbies.

Originally designed by Harry Allen Jacobs, and completed in 1904 as The Seville Hotel, the Carlton serves as a historic reminder of New York’s elegant past.  An inspired fusion of old-world elegance with distinct contemporary energy and glamour, the century-old Carlton’s blend of historic and modern design perfectly captures the city’s spirit. The Carlton is the second New York City hotel to join the Autograph Collection, a growing ensemble of hotels selected for their distinctive style and ability to provide exclusive experiences to guests. Millesime, deriving from the French word for vintage, is the new restaurant in the Carlton Hotel. An organic collaboration not just by namesake, Millesime is built within the historically landmarked details known in the space, including the exquisite 1904 Tiffany-style glass dome skylight and the extraordinary mosaic floor. Millesime, accessible from the Carlton hotel’s lobby, exists on two floors and offers a menu which draws its inspiration from the classic seafood dishes found throughout France complimented by a variety of specialty cocktails.

Shenae Grimes Lion Sweater

Shenae Grimes was photographed wearing Signorelli while out in Los Angeles. The former 90210 actress and fashion blogger looked effortlessly cool as she posed for pictures with pals in her Signorelli Roaring Lion Pull Over Sweater ($75; www.shopsignorelli.com). 






Isla Fisher in Pheel Go to Pants

Isla Fisher was spotted wearing Pheel while picking up daughters, Olive and Elula in Hollywood. The Australian beauty looked cute and fit in her Pheel Go-2-Pant ($82, www.pheel.com).




Isla Fisher is apparently enjoying one of the most fruitful periods of her life.

Her latest project sees her as one of the leads in the romantic comedy Definitely, Maybe. Produced by the team behind Love Actually and the Bridget Jones movies (and, coincidentally, Ali G Indahouse), Definitely, Maybe tells the story of political consultant Will (played by Ryan Reynolds of Smokin' Aces fame), bringing up his ten-year-old daughter Maya (Little Miss Sunshine's Abigail Breslin) in Manhattan.

Brooke Burke Moving On and Looking Good

Brooke Burke-Charvet was spotted wearing Tees by Tina two days ago in Los Angeles. After confirming that she is not returning to Dancing with the Stars, the mother of four stepped out in her Sorbtek Tie Dye Capri in Cobalt, a style from Tees by Tina's brand new Active Lifestyle Collection ($48, www.teesbytina.com).  




Burke-Charvet first made her mark on the ABC series as a competitor in Season 7, where she and partner Derek Hough ultimately took home the mirror ball trophy in 2008. She then went on to join Bergeron as co-host in Season 10.


Did you know that the reality series fired its longtime music director Harold Wheeler and the 28 members of his live backing band earlier this month?  With these changes (possible mistakes), one has to wonder what is going on at Dancing with the Stars.  Brooke certainly looks very happy that she is moving on to bigger and better things.  Happy, and stylish...

Fast Fashion or Fast Food After the Runway

Moschino is pleased to announce the launch of a new capsule collection to be released on the evening of Thursday, February 20, 2014 after the debut of Jeremy Scott’s second collection as Moschino’s creative director. “Fast Fashion – Next Day After The Runway” will provide consumers with a set number of items which will be available for immediate purchase after being shown on the runway. These purchases will be both online at moschino.com and in the fashion house’s mono brand stores.  The collection will also be available at a select group of stores from around the world: Opening Ceremony (New York, Los Angeles and online), Browns (London), Colette (Paris), 10 Corso Como (Milan and Seoul), Hudson Bay (Toronto), and Luisaviaroma (Florence).

Inspired by the catch phrase “fast food, fast fashion,” the capsule collection favors reds and yellows. A new pop-look Moschino logo in these colors adorn both a smooth nappa leather shoulder bag and a quilted nappa leather shoulder bag, a belt, a sweatshirt, T-shirts, and a wool maxi-sweater.


Also “straight off the runway” is a T-shirt with the phrase “I Do Speak Moschino” and a tee-dress with a cartoon print of Mr. Funtastik, a light-hearted allusion to the images on the packaging of the snacks consumed by the fast-food generation.
Finally, the new cult accessories include a rucksack in leather and printed nylon and an iPhone cover called “French Fry Case,” designed to look like a real take-away box of French fries.

 

These new designs from Jeremy Scott favor the new pop culture generation and will resonate with them on a worldwide scale.

Moschino Makes Statement for Autumn/Winter 2014-2015

Food, fashion, irony, joy, glamour and couture!

Jeremy Scott designs his first collection for Moschino and declares:

THIS IS THE NEW FLAVOUR!


The brand’s creative director brings a playful collection to the stage inspired by fast food, cartoons and the fun characters with a nod to the packaging of chocolate bars, candies, pop-corn and cereal boxes with a special appearance by SpongeBob.

The iconic ingredients of Moschino are mixed together to create an exciting new recipe, which pays homage to the brand’s heritage while also looking to the future with energy and enthusiasm.

Tailored suits, quilted leather jackets, trench coats and furs are featured in pop colors of red and yellow with unexpected slogans like “DRINK MOSCHINO”, “FUR REAL” and “CASH COW”.

Make room for Moschino’s logomania, where the “belt goes wild”. Scott celebrates and transforms the famous lettering into a sexy decoration on jackets, bustiers, boots and accessories.

The evening is Pop-Couture! Snack packaging inspired ball gowns in organza and silk duchesse, embellished with made to measure prints with a nod to nutritional facts, prices and bar codes featured on snack packages were major components of the show.

With this group Jeremy Scott creates a series of new comic characters: Mr. Funtastik, Cheesy Bits, Froggy Loops, Dandy Candy who make their first appearances on these package inspired evening gowns.
