Recently they had an art reception for Urban AV artist Levi Maestro on Melrose Avenue in Hollywood. Maestro moved to LA in hopes of starting a film career.

Maestro showcased his art spanning from 2006, when he came to Los Angeles to 2013. The artists brought out everything from limited edition run jackets, mugs to wall art and framed t-shirts.

Levi was joined by artist such as;

Anwar Carrots, Josh Peas, BJ The Chicago Kid, Dianne Garcia, Dom Kennedy, DJ SourMilk, Eli Reed, Gavin McNeil, George Wayne, Hayley Marie Norman, Javier Nunez, Jeff Staple, Kellen Roland, LEP Bogus Boys, Polyester the Saint, The Mac, Tino, Trashhand

The urbanesque art was really impressive and definitely repping LA proper. Levi is an amazing artist, and it was beyond PACKED. Despite the lack of breathing room everyone left happy, full of food and wine with something they loved (hats, shirts, watches, art), including our crew member Ms. Prince.

I was stuck at home with a brain full of NyQuil in fever land, but HUGE thanks to ScionAV for inviting HeathyrWolfe.com crew to this. We can’t thank ScionAV enough for inviting us to this showing of Levi’s work and talent.

The Indomitable Gareth Pugh – #PFW #RunwayReport

This years collections have been over run with blasts from the pasts in design and color from the 20’s-1960’s. Colors have mostly been light blue, Cobalt blue, Persimmon and Burnt Umber with a dash of lime and forest green (Calvin Klein collection).

Thankfully a break in the horizon of fashion has come with the always dashing and daring, Gareth Pugh.

His collection steps out of the norm to bring non-traditional minimalism. Full of monochromatic modernist beauty with a dash of midnight blue. An ethereal quality to his designs based more on draping and material instead patterns, and flashes of 60’s jewels and glitz.

As always his collection sets a futuristic tone that has dominated Paris Fashion Week.

After all he is the indomitable. Gareth Pugh.

Anne Hathaways Prada Oscar Dress Or: Are Those Darts Or is it REALLY Cold in Here? #WardrobeMalfunction #2Times #Nipples? #DARTS

Last minute decisions in the entertainment industry can make or break your career. Unfortunately lately it seems Anne Hathaway is the queen of wardrobe malfunction and bad choices. Last night’s choice to wear a pale pink Prada gown over Valentino may embarrass her for the rest of her Oscar life.

Although the pale pink flattered the beauty the choice to go with a dress that had unfortunate darts will stay to haunt her. Unfortunately placed, like to pale pink perky nipples or guides to them, Twitter was a buzz with Anne’s dress.

I’m surprised Seth McFarlane didn’t make an off-color joke about them, but last night he was strictly business.

 

 

The column gown was gorgeous, well made and looked lovely except one unfortunate and again devastating issue.The placement of those damn darts. I can’t stop looking at the darts!

Anne has had two major wardrobe eff-ups. My hope is that third time is a charm and she’ll stop wearing dresses commando and with nipple guides.

 

 

We wish you luck and congrats on your Oscar hunny. Maybe its time to step it up from ‘Princess Diaries’ and embrace your elegant ‘Les Mis” side. AKA quit giving us bloggers fuel for the fire!

Things to Watch: L.A. Frock Stars on The Smithsonian Channel #Brash #Sass #Fashion #Celebs

I admit that most vices in life I have given up. However there are two things I will never let go of. Chocolate and television. And wine. And….oh blast let’s get back to television.

If you are like me you are addicted to every fashionably interesting show out there. I am still fuming there isn’t more ‘It’s a Brad, Brad, Brad World’ and am addicted to the new show The Face. I’m rooting for Coco seeing as she is sassy and quirky. Well Gods be praised a new show has popped up and it looks fabulous. And it’s set in L.A. which makes me an even bigger fan.

Enter Frock Stars L.A. with the ever wicked and cool owner Doris Raymond, owner of The Way We Wore. One of the hottest vintage shops in L.A. County which dresses some of the hottest celebrities (Adele, Dita Von Tease).

the-way-we-wore-1

How can I describe the owner? She’s fashionable, savvy and a vintage GODDESS. She knows whats up and down and she should be interesting to watch.

FrockStars

Add a fab staff of vintage divas in the know. Styles and designers they carry and hope to find range from the 1920’s to the 1980’s. And with a constant search for ‘the holy grail’ of vintage, it’s a super win.

Check out the teaser for the show here.

L.A. Frock Stars: Sneak Peek

Premieres  March 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Are you watching? I will be.

Temperley Goes Art Deco for London Fashion Week #Retro #Modern #LFW #FW2013

Starting out London Fashion Week full force, Alice Temperley took a classic 40’s inspired look adding dashes of golds and blue to accentuate the long linear figures. Drawing heavily on Art Deco and early sixties chic, Temperley still managed to present a very modern look including the ever trendy over sized jackets, boatneck and high collars we have seen all over runways this year.

Her full length gowns wrecked the runway this year with elongated silhouettes. I can see Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton or some other ethereal goddess wearing these to award season. They are chic in design, geometric shaping and linear quality making any woman look tall and lean.

Bravo Miss Temperley.

Amanda Bynes has Topped the Britney Spears Episodes #UsWeeklyInterview #Accutane #WeightLoss #Wigs #RedLight #Eviction

Dear Lord. As if we don’t have enough celebrity gossip.

Haaaaay! I'm Craaaay!

Haaaaay! I’m Craaaay!

Amanda Bynes is fueling the fire. Seem’s someone has joined the it’s not drugs its just mental instability train. With a recent move to NYC Bynes crazy that was limited to DUI’s, and club nights in Hollywood have escalated to eviction notices, wig changing and drugs that are illegal in the US.

That’s right. Let’s start at the beginning of some of the erratic behavior. First we had the ‘I’m retired, no I’m not’ stint. Then we moved on to MULTIPLE car crashes and a big fat DUI. Feeling judged Ms. Bynes decided to up and leave the land of LALA to go to NYC. Then she really fell down the rabbit hole.

 Ms. Bynes moved into an Manhattan apartment where she frequently left her door not just unlocked (asking to be murdered in NYC is leaving your door unlocked) but wide open. There, her neighbors saw she had changed all the light bulbs to red. Her apartment was also constantly filled with smoke. If you say just cigarettes I say liar. Hard rugs always make you chain smoke if you are a smoker so my guess is she liked to ‘party’.

An eviction notice was to be served but she moved before the landlord had a chance.

Then, the star had kept mostly to her Twitter posting photos of her in every wig known to drag queens. Unfortunately she recently moved her crazy to a profile with US Weekly listing the 25 things you don’t (want) to know about her.

The 5’8 star says she has a goal to lose weight because gains it quickly. After all she is a HUGE 121 lbs.

I moved to New York City and I love it! I lost 4 lbs. since I moved. I’m 121 lbs — my goal is 100 lbs.Read more: http://www.usmagazine.com/entertainment/news/amanda-bynes-25-things-you-dont-know-about-me-2013152#ixzz2LCzfwQSS 

Wait, what?

Her goal is 100 lbs. Yeah, really. Wigs and car crashes may be ‘funny’, but the rest is out of control.

Ms. Bynes is on the health afflicted ‘Accutane’ for her skin, which is illegal in the US.

Not that many remember but this stuff was so damn bad for you it was YANKED of the shelves for causing birth defects, rectal bleeding, purple spots under the skin, jaundice, bloody stools, bone fracture and in more severe cases Crones Disease and ulcerative colitis.

It also has some side effects that include erratic behavior, depression and suicidal thoughts. You have to wonder if all this is hard drugs or may just be an illegal acne medicine.

Either way, I’ll take blackheads any day over looking like this.

Rihanna Creates ‘Slutwear’ Line for her Debut at London Fashion Week, Jeopardizes £800,000 Contract #LFW #Rihanna #Tragic #Horror #WeedTweet

Defined as a ‘horror’ and worse Rihanna’s fashion debut at London Fashion week is a terrible fail.

‘The Daily Beast’ described her line as a ‘horror show’, and they were right!

According to the Huffpost, Rihanna was over an hour late starting. Making a crowd wait isn’t unheard of, but an hour?! Everything was badly simplistic. TV-esque, 90’s style, with one piece Baywatch Swimsuit & SJP LA Story, off-shoulder outfit with mini skirt. No flourish or trim and 97%  see-through, gauzy material fit for a romance novel cover. She was off-season, presenting in London late and not scheduled as part of ‘Official Fashion Week’.

If I were Rihanna right now, I would be hiding somewhere in a bottle of rum.

There are too many reasons Rihanna’s line was a failure but let’s highlight a few.

Involvement; Rihanna’s direct involvement with River Island creating her line, was small at best. She sent texts and emails, choosing the material samples and giving the OK on design via phone. Nothing more. Despite her sad choices in design and material, the real credit to the line goes elsewhere.

Her line created, sewn and draped by designer Philip Green. Green created the Kate Moss line ($$$$) and brought TopShop from a zero to multi-million dollar hero of retail. Philip Green’s collaboration with rock stars and models have ALWAYS created money. However Rihanna is a a fail and a flake. Why?

Professionalism: River Island directly works with ASOS, Primark, Zara and of course Topshop, all of which Rihanna could have had a stake in with a £800,000 contract. Then she jeopardized that.

Two days before her London debut Rihanna was stupidly bold enough to post pictures of a marijuana bud putting her line and professionalism at question with River Island and the fashion community. Mostly, River Island, who very much said that her tweet of green could kill her contract and to keep things under wraps about her love affair with weed. In the fashion community we don’t care what you do, but don’t let everyone know about it.

Over all the line was simple, sad and see through, I can’t even wear it to bed. The blatant 90’s rip off wear is too much for any serious designer to stomach. Rihanna gets a D- for effort, and if possible an F- for the line.

Back to the drawing board RiRi.

Happy Valentine’s Day from HeathyrWolfe.com! A Little History Lesson #History #ValentinesDay

love-u-valentines-day-19080940-1024-768

Ah Valentine’s Day. A little slice of Hallmark hell. Every year you are damned if you do, or damned if you don’t. Wil it be enough to please her? Will she please you? Will he give me a ring? Will he remember or just hit the local 7-11 for some cheap stand-by gift? All these questions, and more, are answered on this day? But Why?

Originally this day was to celebrate St. Valentine’s courage, and stoning to death of course. So if you feel uneasy and slightly unpleasant today it’s ok. Here is the reason why.

Compliments of Wikipedia;

St. Valentine’s Day began as a liturgical celebration of one or more early Christian saints named Valentinus. The most popular martyrology associated with Saint Valentine was that he was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire; during his imprisonment, he is said to have healed the daughter of his jailer Asterius. Legend states that before his execution he wrote her a letter “from your Valentine” as a farewell.

Poor guy. See how much trouble marriage causes? Kidding.

So today is honoring a man who was dedicated to, and killed for, LOVE. Don’t forget that. It’s about Love people. Not jewelry. Though that’s always a nice painkiller.

Happy Valentines Day to you everyone. And here’s to all the love in the world.

Punk is NOT Dead! MET Costume Institute Displays Punk Coutoure. #McClaren #Westwood #McQueen #ROCK

Who say’s Punk is dead? Not the NY MET Costume Institute. Recently Anna Wintour, Riccardo Tisci and several others put their best punk foot forward at a gala to display a full array of punk wear. Original Vivienne Westwood/Malcolm McClaren, McQueen, Lagerfeld and Galliano’s outfits are displayed in this diverse look at punk influence.

Punk art & street influence began to show its distasteful head in the mid-1970’s and still has a rough handle on the fashion industry to this day. Ricardo Tisci of Givenchy, Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm Mclaren embraced it around 1976 and never looked back. To this day Westwood’s punk influence is still pretty heavy in her collections. You don’t get to be a well-known designer of 30+ years by playing it safe. And punk, has NEVER been safe.

Checkout the display in New York City from the MET evening of Punk.

Eva Mendes Dives into Fashion with New York & Co. Deal #NewLine #Sexy #FashionDiva

eva-mendes-met-gala-2011-Stella-McCartney
I love Eva Mendes. She is spunky, sexy, knows how to smile, takes things seriously but not too seriously. She is hot, has curves and is just plain gorgeous.

It makes perfect sense having all these attributes that she would go and start her own fashion line.
According to Women’s Wear Daily, Eva has partnered with NY&Co. Known for their simple and clean work styles, to create some bombshell gorgeous evening wear. It will be called (of course), Eva by Eva Mendes. Nothing like adding star quality and name to your brand.

“This could be significant for us,” said Greg Scott, chief executive officer of New York & Co. “We like to think big. We’ll see how the collection can grow.” Bridesmaid dresses are just one of the opportunities, Scott said.

Eva by Eva Mendes will consist of a large dress component and accessories. “We don’t address day-to-evening and real cocktail looks today,” Scott said. “There will be pants and jeans because that’s what our brand is known for. Eva is excited to pursue that also.”

I’m glad Eva is pursuing casual wear. We need more pants and jeans to fit our curvier girls. My roommate is 24/7 hell trying to find cute jeans to fit her booty. Eva’s style is amazing and she knows how to put something together is always unique with class. CEO Greg Scott of NY&Co. agree’s;

“We want her influence in the collection,” Scott said. “She has amazing red carpet style and also has a very unique style off the red carpet. She has a real sense of self, which will help us in terms of the design aesthetic. When we look at her, she really is confident.”

Hell yes she does. And she’s smart as a whip too.

I’m looking forward to see what miss thing can put together. I think Eva is beyond sexy. Any attire she helps them create will be too. With such a great sense of style, how it not be a win?

Th collection should have quite a few LBD’s and is full of print’s. Worried it’s ANOTHER celebrity brand with no Eva behind it? Ms. Mendes is 150% involved.

Mendes has already participated in a few creative meetings. “The other day, I went to the office with half my closet,” she said. “Part of the fun is coming up with the designs and looking through my closet. There are a lot of prints and lots of color. Black can be very chic and very New York,” but Mendes realized that her wardrobe is comprised mostly of color and prints.

You go sexy bitch!

I’m looking forward to seeing what she can do for the industry. If she can’t do it, no one can.

Don’t disappoint Eva. We are rooting for you.

Rihanna is Sucking My Will to Live – New Video Unedited ‘Stay’ w Mikky Ekko #Rihanna #Tub #Stay #Snooze

rihanna-stay

Look. It’s Rihanna. In a tub. Not doing anything. Still not doing anything. Look it’s Rihanna’s tattoo. Look its—zzzzzz.

Yes we have the new unedited version of Rihanna’s ‘Stay’ With Mikky Ekko. Rihanna is usually mad talented so I thought I would watch it. I even thought hey Michael K. over at Dlisted might just be a little bitchy when it comes to this. Nope.  I have to say after the first 15 seconds I started closing my eyes and letting my head fall to one side. Let’s just say ballads are not Riri’s strong point. And the video? It really is….something.

Check it below.

Lana del Rey ‘Blue Velvet’ for H&M #Sexy #Artistic #Chic #No Pants?

We all know I have BIG love for Lana Del Rey. Despite her odd little lip augmentation fluke, bitch is perfect. Sexy, sultry chanteuse who knows how to work every angle of the camera from near or far. Especially in no pants wearing a pink angora sweater. Add some cool looking retro people and a little man in a swank suit (midget, dwarf? I am so not PC) and we have a win. AGAIN. For H&M. Is there nothing they can’t do these days?

Valentine’s Gift Guide – What to do for Your Man in LA. #GiftGuide #FilmGuide #ValentineforHim #LosAngeles #MustSeeMovies

We all know how to work Valentine’s Day for the woman in your life. Chocolate’s, lingerie, card’s, romantic dinners and the favorite, Jewelry. Let’s face it, buying for the woman in your life is easy. Valentine’s Day is 90% geared to the feminine persuasion and we get happy and romantically stupid over the smallest things (see jewelry).

This real question for the ladies. What do you get your boyfriend? A tie (see NO)? A geek toy (they already own it and haven’t told you)? Golfing lessons with Tiger Woods? Ok, he might like that one. Real dedication and love are none of these things ladies. What he really want’s is a date night involving a totally ludicrous, sexual, violent guy flick. And I have just the thing.

Sushi Girl is everything he ever wanted.

Gratuitous violence. Yeah there is plenty of that thanks to Tony Todd, Andy Mackenzie, Sonny Chiba and the most AWESOME Danny Trejo. Sex? A hot Courtney Palm leads as the ‘Sushi Girl’ laid out as myotaimori (a sushi table/girl). Witty Banter? Add Mark Hamill as the toady, simpering and wicked smart Crow. A secret knight in shining armor with a penchant for nose candy, James Duval. And our hero? Fish played by the ever awesome Noah Hathaway.

What happens when you put together a crew of seasoned professionals like Tony Todd who has a masterful career spanning 20+ years, Andy Mackenzie who has been in over 70 film and TV features ( from The Mentalist, CSI, True Blood), Mark Hamill who will forever be known for his awesome portrayal as young Skywalker, James Duval who will forever be Frank the Rabbit from Donnie Darko in my mind and Noah Hathaway who known his portrayal as Atreyu in the Never Ending story?

Mother-effing-magic.

How do I know ‘HE’ will like it? I was lucky enough to catch a screening at the Directors Guild. It made me squeamish, happy, sad and scream bad ass at the end. It’s been called Tarinto-esque and it really is. I’ll describe this feature as a ‘happy slice of hell’.

But why trust me? Check out the trailer here;

So ladies what do we do here in LA for the man we love? Take him to a rocking, socking, blow ’em up, hit you where it counts feature. The great part? It’s at Mann’s Chinese Theater and you can buy tickets online. And guys…if she doesn’t buy it…go now before it’s too late.

What are you waiting for? It’s a limited engagement playing from the 2/8-2/14.
Go buy here.

Kimye Poses as Jesus Christ in Brazil #Tacky #Tactless #StuntQueens

There comes a times when incredible egos do incredible stunts to be incredibly tacky to incredibly tabloid news. This would be one of them. Oh Kimye, What in Gods name are you doing?

Pregnant reality TV star Kim Kardashian wears a pink dress while her and boyfriend rapper Kanye West visit the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio De Janeiro

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No. Literally. What in Gods name are they doing?

Recently Kim Kardashian and her baby daddy Kanye West went to Rio De Janeiro to explore the wonders of Brazil. While at the ‘Christ the Redeemer’ statue, they decided to pull a trashy tabloid photo for the Brazilian paparazzi. Like only a stunt queen can they posed together as Jesus Christ.

Not only was this in bad taste (hey, it’s Kimye) but also blasphemy  Seeing as Kanye has a long history of likening himself to Christ I suppose we shouldn’t be shocked. Annnnnnnd, we’re not.

The reason being is when eg-ho’s this big crash together, OF course they think they are bigger than JC. It’s alright to be disgusted by it. They are clueless and tactless.

This photo proves all of that. Note little boys look of disgust in background and Kanye’s look of herpaderp.
