Art Gallery Style OOTD


I went to my first art gallery opening as a junior in high school - that was a long time agoooo. I stood next to artist Larry Rivers, not realizing (at the time) his contributions to contemporary art. I did however pay attention to his style. It was a unkempt but deliberate. Some thought went into his look. I was especially drawn to his shoes. They were sneakers, Adidas maybe, not sure because he had spray painted them with a bronze metallic [and it was more than 30 years ago!]... But, they were so fucking cool.... that, I remember. So, what's my point? The take away is this: break the rules, change it up, mix-n-match, push the envelope, think outside the box, anything goes, express yourself, be quirky, be whimsical and most of all, have fun with style when gallery hopping. Or always.

Haider Ackermann MEN 2015


Boho meets bougie at Haider Ackermann. You can also see the influence of Keith Richards in Ackermann's Spring 2015 collection. Notice the layering of pattern and textures. Only someone skilled with a creative mind can layer so much this successfully. Individually, there are many stand alone pieces too. I love this collection! View:

Cuba Update!


We have officially begun production on my documentary about finding my father in Cuba. Gil Guillama, pictured with me here, alongside this amazing orange 1954 Chevy, spent eight very enlightening and emotional days in Havana. I reunited with my father and currently I am reliving the overwhelming experience as Gil and I go through our footage as we prepare to tell my story. We took this photo in my old neighborhood. It was my first time back since 1970. My house was in front of us, and the park I used to play at, behind us. It was so beautiful 40 years ago, and now, as you can see, is no longer. 

Look for more updates, teasers and its premiere this October at the Georgia Latino Film Festival.

Romantic. Elegant. Goddess. Get lost in fantasy with the Valentino Fall couture show in it's entirety.

I love me some Uncle Karl. No one does haute couture like Chanel. Here is the full video to the latest show at the Grand Palais in Paris. The closing is as always so fabulously dramatic - so if you're going to skip, skip towards the end... just sayin! Psst... I spy Kendall Jenner... can you?


Glamazons Invade Jeffrey!

Oscar de la Renta, Jeffrey Atlanta
As I walked through Phipps Plaza yesterday, working my way to Jeffrey, I spotted a tall, young, beautiful glamazon in short shorts, hair pulled back and holding very high heels in hand. But, that walk ... I can spot a runway model a mile away, or in this case 100ft. Then I see another. And another. They were leaving the exact place I was going to. I thought to myself, "whoa, if these are the models being cast for Jeffrey Fashion Cares, it's going to be one hell of a show!"

Orange Is The New Black's Matt McGorry

I recently got hooked on Orange Is The New Black. And when I say hooked, I mean obsessed. I watched seasons one and two in just seven days!! Wow, when I say it that way I wonder how I got anything else done. (I didn't!)

You just can't help but to get invested in the characters and feel for them. In some cases, one can even relate. Again, in some cases only. I can't relate to knocking up a prison inmate - or anyone for that matter. But corrections officer John Bennett can. Well, at least on the show. Matt McGorry stars as John Bennett. His character is a little green behind the ears. He's kind, compassionate, mild-mannered and totally adorable. He's everything against the stereotype which proves to be a problem. If you haven't watched Orange Is The New Black, I strongly urge you to check it out!! NO spoilers here.

I stumbled upon this very cool interview with Matt McGorry by GQ Magazine editor Mark Anthony Green. It's great. Unconventional. They are both getting shaves at a barbershop and they discuss all sorts of "stuff." It's good. Watch it.
