Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2013

Stella McCartney’s pre-fall 2013 presentation took place in a mansion on the Upper East Side (the Americas Society on Park Avenue to be exact) and the photos have me devastated my invite was lost in the mail. While the pianist played Lady Gaga tunes for Stella’s guests, models played Scrabble, had their portraits painted, and sipped cocktails fireside. Rumor has it there was even a unicorn ice sculpture! Oh to be a fly on the wall…

Miranda Brooks’ Brooklyn Abode

I have been watching like a hawk waiting for big, beautiful images of Miranda Brooks and Bastien Halard’s home to appear and at long last, they’re here! The stylish landscape designer and architect live in Brooklyn with their two daughters, Violette Grey and Poppy (could they be any cuter?). From the bedroom’s custom de Gournay wallpaper to the charming bunny den in the backyard the entire property has me weak in the knees. Someday, Katie, someday…!
