Who hasn't seen this video? When I first heard Lady Gaga's music I didn't quite comprehend what the fuss was about. Then I saw her stunning videos and saw this. The style is off the charts, which brings me to a project by my dear friends Ron & Jaime of Woodson & Rummerfield.
It's like the video was shot at the project below. It wasn't, but it's ridiculous how similar the locations are! This is the Esquire House in Beverly Ridge with Versace's furniture line. The house is jaw droppingly beautiful. So unbelievably chic.

So normally Luke Chueh's work is a bit too dark for me. Those creepy teddy bears remind me of scary clowns. But when I saw this print I fell in love. The big bunny really really wants that carrot and he can't get to it. It's appropriately titled, "Reach."
The original is sold, but if you're interested in a print, it's pretty reasonable at $135.

Julius Schulman captured this iconic photo in 1960. It is Case Study House No. 22, one of the most famous photos of American architecture. Architect Pierre Koenig and homeowner C.H. Stahl created the fabulous Stahl House, which is perched on a dangerous looking (and thrilling) edge of the Hollywood Hills.
Robert works behind the scenes at Channel 4, so imagine my surprise when I learned he'd be on the news tonight with one of our local weather legends - Fritz Coleman!
Those in the know are already aware Fritz is also a standup comedian, so get ready for some silliness if you click on the photo! He and Robert poke fun at the competition's weather device called "The Doppler."
Do ya like Robert's bandaged thumb? One day I'll tell that story too.

Onto this show! Natalia Fabia had a smashing opening this weekend at Corey Helford Gallery.
From afar.Up close. Love!The detail is beautiful.
This is Pink. I like her tough attitude. Natalia paints her friends and I think this group might be sisters. At least that's how people were referring to them.The sisters working it in front of their painting. Rightly so. Natalia got in on the action. Love her dress and hair!

Here's the recipe for one of the drinks that will be served at the Governors Ball. If you don't drink alcohol, I'm sure this would be great with pomegranate and blood orange sodas.
The Red Carpet Fizz
1/2 oz Pomegranate Juice
1/3 oz Orange Liquor
Add Fresh Raspberries
Top with Moët & Chandon White Star Champagne

I love this surreal concept! Cozy wool stones. Perfect with SoCal's grey skies and crisp weather. I'm up for another nap.
Catching a view from a tabletop at Tryst.
Feet firmly on the ground, really wanting to jump into the waterfall. If it had been warmer...
Remember those fuschia YSL shoes I posted just a few days ago? I spotted them paired with rubberized stretch pants everyone seems to be sporting and couldn't resist a quick snap. They are incredible in person.

When I was 21, my friends & I gambled at cheap slots for free drinks. Waitress?
My parents used to drop us off at Circus Circus, just like these tots. They'd hand us each $20 and pat our backs as they left for the casino. The best year was when my brother and I pooled our money and spent every cent scoring a stuffed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.
Dean Martin running a table. Classic.
