LINCOLN: Carrey vs. McConaughey

If you haven't seen this Saturday Night Live spoof, reward yourself with a laugh and watch it now. I'll admit, the first time I saw the Matthew McConaughey commercial for the 2015 Lincoln MKC crossover I was a little baffled. In the first few seconds, I remember thinking it was (possibly) the trailer for a thriller. When I quickly realized it was an ad for Lincoln, I thought, "oh. really? okay,"... An Oscar winning lead actor just gave an Oscar worthy performance... and then Jim Carrey happened! It's all in good fun. Thanks SNL!

OSCAR 1932-2014


I may have shed a tear or two while putting together this tribute for one of the greatest American designers, Oscar de la Renta. The legendary designer died Monday night at the age of 82. He dressed celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker [pictured above at this year's Met Gala] to first ladies like Jacqueline Kennedy. But one of the facts that impressed me most about the designer was that he trained with Balenciaga - tutelage under one of the greatest couturiers in the world set the foundation for the house of de la Renta. Oscar de la Renta was the personification of style, elegance and sophistication. He will not be forgotten. R.I.P. View Photos:
