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.

All the world is rapt by Kim Kardashians horrifying pregnancy outfits. Truly atrocious and all around bad it’s a whole lotta style ‘don’t’ for Fergie and other mom’s to be.

However I am pleased to bring some really good news. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West found out that they are having a girl! Props to the parents.

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.
