The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From Sidewalk to the Catwalk

While in Dallas last week, I had the opportunity to visit the Dallas Museum of Art to see the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit. This fashion exhibit was one of the most inspiring collections of art that I have seen in person in quite a while. As you enter, you will quickly notice that the mannequins have digital, screened faces that talk quietly in French or sing in unison with the mannequin beside it.  As you move throughout the exhibit, you will see JPG himself having a conversation with his own reflection.  It is both realistic and eerie.  In another room there are mannequins moving along a conveyor belt to portray a runway.  Aside from the exceptional presentation, JPG’s collection is breath-taking.  Overall, this exhibit is a MUST-SEE!

Here are some highlights:

Home of the Week – What’s on the Market?

This San Francisco estate seems to go on forever.  Built in 1910 and fully restored in 2002, this mansion boasts 3 rooftop terraces, 6 fireplaces, 2 kitchens, a basketball court and a commercial speed elevator, all of which are in pristine condition.  It is located in the prime neighborhood of Pacific Heights and has views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay Bridge, and the city skyline.  I love the orange and yellow decor and the playful basement area. It is currently listed with Redfin Realty.

Post-Thanksgiving Dream Vacation: The Greenbrier

I had such a wonderful Thanksgiving break.  However, sometimes after all of the activity of going on vacation, I feel like I need another vacation.  After dining on boatloads of cranberries, potatoes, turkey, and pie I would love to escape to a spa for some true R & R.  The Greenbrier in West Virginia would be my dream vacation right about now…

House of Turquoise

I love the calming effect of this gorgeous sea foam-y turquoise that has become a staple in the design world.  It looks so beautiful when used as paint, decor accents or major pieces of furniture.

Turquoise looks great with neutrals, but I also love it when paired with a bold color like orange or red.

Home of the Week – What’s on the Market?

There are so many selling points for this property that I don’t even know where to begin.  I guess I’ll start with a little background on the Yellowstone Club.  Located in Big Sky, Montana, YC is the world’s only private ski and golf resort.  Every inch of this club is in pristine condition with every amenity you could possibly imagine.  The staff is incredibly kind and attentive and the members are down to earth and laid back, which creates a real sense of community.  In addition, because this is a private ski resort, you will never wait in line at a chair lift.

This property is designed by Reid Smith Architects and inspired by the French country mountain homes found in the Alps. It is a technologically advanced ‘smart home,’ with two specialized air purification systems, humidification and heat recovery ventilation systems, which ensure a completely allergy-free atmosphere and an easy adjustment to the altitude change. It has a stadium seating home theater, a massive children’s playroom and a temperature controlled wine cellar. Another special quality is the unique powder room boasting Rojo Alicante marble. 

Visit the Yellowstone Club website for more information on this property.

Western Union: Lauren Bush + David Lauren Wedding Photos (Just Released in Vogue)

Vogue has just released a few wedding photos of America’s Royal Couple – Lauren Bush and David Lauren.  I am literally dying over her stunning gown and the breath-taking backdrop of their nuptials.

She is SO BEAUTIFUL in this lace dress and headpiece!… and he looks equally as dapper.  Both dressed in Ralph Lauren.

What a spectacular Western-style horse-drawn carriage. It transported the bride along the Lauren family’s Double RL ranch in Telluride, Colorado.
