Double the Fun with House of Eleven. SS 2014 Preview at the Falls in DTLA #PrivateShowing #CelebSightings #Bespoke

Bespoke Listeni/biˈspk/ is a British English word that means a clothing item made to a buyer’s specification (personalised or tailored). While the term historically is applied to only men’s tailored clothing, it now generally includes footwear and other apparel, implying measurement and fitting.

Welcome to the world of House of Eleven. A bespoke clothing line that has not only won my heart, but is now No. 1 on my Xmas shopping list.

Started by the Silva Twins, Darcey and Stacey, around 2 years ago, this line has coming out as a ‘cut’ above the rest. They are winning over the fashion industry at large, but also, a HUGE celebrity clientele.

The event was at the historic downtown LA bar/club, The Falls. When I arrived it was already packed. So much for being fashionably late.

The crowd included everyone from local reality stars, to buyers, fashion TV and agency photographers. Some of the admirers and celebrities present were  Angie Everhart, Vianey Arana(Miss California Latina)and  Apollonia Kotero.  Caroline D’Amore showed up earlier and I missed her. She is the runway model who notoriously flipped off reality trash Scott Disick and a Jenner, for being drunk and disorderly in the front row of a runway she was walking recently. Besides being gorgeous, I love her for that, and wish I could have told her so.

I caught Jennifer Jimenez, RHOBH friend of Brandi Glanville, with my cell totally by accident.

Caught off guard, I see you Ms. Jimenez!

However the reason I go to these is not the celeb heavy crowd. That is an easy draw in LA but I truly came for the clothes.

House of Eleven is beyond what I hoped. The Spring/Summer 2014 collection consists over piece’s with breathable leather in creams, grays, blacks, and some really nice splashes of coral pink. Everything is well-stitched, tasteful with an edge, includes sexy and playful leather trim and made for all body types. The thought of wearing leather during a hot day or night in Los Angeles seems unbearable. Yet, looking at the make of the design you see House of 11 has made it light and breathable, without sacrificing design.

I did get to corner the fabulous twins, Darcey and Stacey Silva, for a moment to grill them about the their line. Turns out this line is a true LA story.

Born and raised here in LA, they began House of Eleven just a little under two years ago.

After only three fashion seasons, they are bi-coastal, with boutiques in LA and NY. I am beyond impressed to find out have incredible backing by; fabulous celebrity clientele, international recognition, work with amazing PR representation and are busy, busy, busy.

Here’s where the story brings the ‘awwwz’. They are single, hard-working moms, with NO previous design/seamstress experience, and are completely self-taught. With incredible designs that are double stitched, bespoke with perfect designs(leather can buckle and get wavy if seams are done badly) and lines for Women, Men and Children, you have to wonder how they do it.

Obviously, quite well.

After talking to Darcey and Stacey they handed me a lovely packaged ‘Hof11’ gift box with their cards. Way to sway this blogger ladies. I love gifts!

Thank you ladies. You are amazing.

I met one of the CEO’s, Michael and we talked business,’Hof11′ background, and how badly I wanted his ‘Hof11’ shirt. Last, but never least, I was given a drink and double kiss from my fav PR peep’s at Genevieve/HSMPR.  If you haven’t heard of them you should. They are responsible for creating events for clients like VOGUE/CFDA FASHION FUND Finalist Presentation, Philanthropic Society Los Angeles’ (PSLA) 4th annual Autumn Party with Stella McCartney, and of course presenting these two bombshell designers from House of Eleven SS 2014 collection.

I have to thank them for putting on an amazing event and introducing me to the talented Silva twins. And House of Eleven my newest addition to my wardrobe this spring/summer.

Lady Gaga Continues Her Epic Fashion Fail #BadDay #BadMonth #BadOutfit

With an epic performance at the VMA’s and ‘Applause’ kicking the charts in the nads I would expect a crazy, fun, pop art, gay friendly Gaga to bring the greatness to her persona. A new Andy Warhol-esque diva perhaps? Something that is totally ‘ArtPop’?

Instead the Huffpost revealed this.

And This;
Lady Gaga seen leaving her apartment in New York City

Oh, snap with a side of incredi-fail. Gaga is starting to look like a drag queen at 2:30am, after partying at The Abbey in West Hollywood, on Halloween night, aka, not so pretty.

I’m not sure what’s worse. Is it the smushed wig under a turban only Elizabeth Taylor could pull off? It looks akin to something that grew under my fridge a couple of months back. Her boobs are so squished, it literally is starting to give me sympathy pains.

Maybe it’s the dress that is screaming K-town $5 special? Perhaps it is the stoner glasses left over from the Lennon does acid while doing Yoko era? Maybe it’s just the ‘I did to many drugs and need a 14 hour nap’ face? Perhaps, it’s the fact my roommate thought I was showing her another picture of the 50-60 something year old Angelyne (at least she has style). The only redeemable thing here is the shoes. They are plain and simple and truly DO NOT match the outfit and that’s why they work.

Yes, Gaga has truly hit the ‘Diva down for the count’ look. Didn’t she just tell Miley Cyrus that drugs ‘eat your soul’?

I remember the days of new, young, hot and svelte Gaga. She was wry, witty and uber, uber fierce with a side of fucking awesome. She made videos with hot piece Alexander Skarsgard and worked it in rubber better than any bitch.

What happened? We will never know. Here’s hoping Gaga brings back the fierce. Just in case you need to remember what that looks like here is the video for ‘Paparazzi’. Maybe she will read this and it will snap her back into shape.

Damien Hirst x Alexander McQueen Scarf Collab. Beauty in Nature #New #Beautiful #MustHave

amq-hirst_1118x620-1

I make no excuses, nor will I ever lie about my total and complete dedication to the House of McQueen. There is virtually nothing in their collections I do not covet.

The house of McQueen just released a new scarf collection. The collection features a collaboration with iconic artist Damien Hirst. Hirst’s career reigned supreme in the UK in 90s and continues to impress, and be iconic, in the art scene.

The new collection features a nature theme with symmetrical designs in the classic McQueen skull motif. Add the effervescent talent of Sølve Sundsbø who shot the collection AND directed an editorial video for the scarves. He is by far one of the great’s in the industry who constantly produces amazing photography. I am impressed with Burton, of the House of McQueen, to tap such amazing talent.

With such beautiful representation, I am in complete submission, and awe, of this collection.

Cruise Compares Military Combat to Acting, Whalberg Loses It On Him . #Bravo #YouTellHim

If there is one thing I am totally behind in this world of ours, it is out troops. No matter where you stand politically, the men and women over seas fighting for us are beyond brave and deserve every bit of praise they get.

That is why there are so many movies over the years like this.

Lone_Survivor_poster

Stirring, dramatic and reminding us how much we take for granted. They are amazing counts of how everyday heroes save the world.

Unfortunately, Tom Cruise didn’t get that memo.

Once again our winsome not so heroic Cruise has let the Scientology devil take over with a good dose of verbal madness. Recently court documents came to light suggesting Cruise felt his job as an actor, was akin to ‘fighting in Afghanistan’.

According to The Gawker,

When asked by a lawyer if he was aware that his own counsel had “equated your absence from [his daughter] Suri…to someone fighting in Afghanistan,” Cruise said he hadn’t heard the analogy, but agreed that “that’s what it feels like.”

“And certainly on this last movie, it was brutal,” he added.

This of course had to be said during a press Q&A for the new movie ‘Lone Survivor’.

Cruise’s co-star, and leading man of the movie, Mark Wahlberg was not amused. And he flipped out. Very much in the right. Wahlberg cam back at him with a very lengthy tirade telling Tommy Boy, to STFU;

“For actors to sit there and talk about ‘Oh I went to SEAL training,’ and I slept on the — I don’t give a fuck what you did,” Wahlberg exclaimed.

“You don’t do what these guys did. For somebody to sit there and say my job was as difficult as somebody in the military’s. How fucking dare you. While you sit in a makeup chair for two hours.”

“I don’t give a shit if you get your ass busted,” the tirade continued. “You get to go home at the end of the day. You get to go to your hotel room. You get to order fucking chicken. Or your steak. Whatever the fuck it is.”

Ohhhhh, snap. Although it was a bit out-of-bounds, Wahlberg just OWNED it.

Later he apologized for his ranty-rant and said he was ‘proud to be part of the movie’. I figure it was because PR told him to. I think it’s so Scientology, Tom Cruise’s handlers and Xenu don’t hunt his ass down.

Oh Tom Cruise when will you come back to us? Remember the days of ‘Cocktail’ and ‘Top Gun’? You were akin to a sex god. Now, you are riding the Scientology short bus. I guess when you’re co-pilot is Xenu, you are on a fast train, bound to end on the bad end of business these days.

Here’s hoping Cruise learns to control the ‘alien’ in his head, aka his brain. Team Wahlberg for the WIN!

MTV EMA’s – Miley’s Camel Toe & Iggy Azalea Unfortunate Wardrobe Malfunction (w NSFW pic)

It seem’s in you are no one in the industry without a wardrobe malfunction. Whether you spilleth over a la Tara Reid, or you flash yourself coming out of the car a la Britney and Anne Hathaway, everyone has an ‘unfortunate‘ moment.

You also know (or maybe don’t because you have a life) the fabulous, star-studded, music heavy, MTV EMA’s were last night.

Located in Amsterdam (where’s Snoop Lion?), The MTV EMA’s did bring an amazing array of talented artists last night. And some wardrobe malfunctions!

First, Miley tried to steal the spotlight with camel toe…

Miley-Cyrus-2718859

And later at the MTV EMA’s last night by puffing a spliff on stage. We all know the real deal though. She’s rebelling against a country singin’ daddy and is well, she’s just trying too hard. She’s about as ghetto as Ariana Grande and we are getting seriously bored with her twerking.

The real star? Iggy Azalea on the red carpet, and HER wardrobe malfunction.

You all know I have nothing but respect for Iggy Azalea. She is currently my favorite hustler on the scene working with T.I., Pharrel and a bevvy of other hot hip hop stars. She’s got the booty of a goddess, is a gorgeous and very talented model, has a great sense of humor, and has a sick flow, as my roomie says. She also knows how to dress better than 90% of musicians out there having been in the fashion industry.

MTV EMA's 2013 - Red Carpet Arrivals

Wearing a gorgeous gown (still looking for the designer) on the red carpet she dazzled the crowd. Unfortunately as leggy, toned and fabulous as she is in this dress she had very little control over it and flashed everyone her very toned and well coiffed ‘PU$$Y’ (what? It’s a song reference).
