RIP Catherine di Montezemolo

I was sad to read that former Vogue editor Catherine di Montezemolo passed away this week. For those of you who don't know she spent an unbelievable thirty-five years at American Vogue and then Lord & Taylor. At a time when many women didn't have "careers" she paved the way for them in publishing, and retail. She truly lived an amazing, inspirational life. My most sincere condolences to her friends and family.

Here is the obituary via The Huffington post:
"Di Montezemolo was a striking platinum blonde known for her grace, personal style and unpretentious manner. Described by friends as a woman who always had a smile on her face and a generous heart, di Montezemolo had a varied career that started at Vogue, where she spent 35 years and became a fashion editor in the Sixties covering European fashion. She later spent 12 years at Lord & Taylor, where she continued to review ready-to-wear shows and the European couture as well as American fashion."

A Model Moment: Arm Pitt Farts?

Ford Model's Anna K in VELVET---is she making arm pitt farts?! Checking to make sure her antiperspirant is still working?! Well, whatever, she looks just beautiful!

Bostonista's 1st Birthday!

I'm a terrible blogger! I forgot my blog's first birthday!
April 16th marked the 1 year anniversary of my blog! While my inspiration and passion has ebbed and flowed over the past year Bostonista (and its amazing readers!) has become a huge part of my life that I wouldn't trade for anything in the world!
348 posts, hundreds of comments and over 77,600 visitors later I just want to say thank you for all of your support!

A Celebrity Moment: Camilla Belle's Elle Italia Cover!

Until quite recently Camilla Belle has flown mostly under the radar. I've been following her for a few years now thanks to her amazing personal style but her acting career has been shaky at best. Sure, she's graced the covers of a few magazines here and there and she's even won herself great reviews (specifically The Ballad of Jack & Rose) but most of her career seems to have been less than wisely thought out. The obligatory Disney Channel movie (Rip Girls) and teen horror flick (When A Stranger Calls) did little for her reputation as an actress and the big budget disaster that was 10,000 BC should probably never be mentioned again. But she's an achingly beautiful girl and I think she deserves a chance to prove herself beyond being the girlfriend of a Jonas brother, after all, she's IS the girl in Bostonista's banner!
So I was super excited to see her on the cover of May's Elle Italia! Check out the pictures and if anyone can translate the Italian into English I'd be eternally grateful!

A Model Moment: Stam is 23!

Supposedly her party is being held at the brand new, super exclusive (it's invitation only- you get a fake key that can be worn as a bracelet. Only 125 New Yorkers got them! Stam, apparently, being one of them!) club, The Gates.
Also, some super exciting Stam news...she'll be wearing Rodarte to the Costume Institute Met Gala in just a few weeks for the opening of Model as Muse!

Loomstate for Target

Just in time for Earth Day Target celebrated the launch of the Loomstate for Target collection last night at Big Red Sun in Venice, California. Rogan Gregory had a successful run with his high-end organic line, Rogan. So it isn't surprising that both he and Target were anxious to work together again-this time on his lower-end eco-friendly line, Loomstate.
The Target collection maintains Loomstate's signature California cool aesthetic with cute pelican printed shorts and tops plus amazing t-shirt dresses. Hopefully, the line maintains the quality of fabrics as well since they told Racked LA back in December that many of the 100% Certified organic pieces are silk & cotton or linen & cotton blends with soft-washed finishes.
There are a bunch of pieces that I think look great but there is a part of me that has to wonder--how eco-friendly can this line really be when its being mass-produced in much lower quality (based on price points. Loomstate starts at $200 while the Target version will top off at $44.99) by one of the biggest retailers in the world?

A Model Moment: Kate May Eat But She Doesn't Cook...

A few days ago I mentioned the rumor that Kate Moss planned to write a cookbook (some reports even thought a kosher cookbook!) but her rep told People magazine today that,
"There is no cookbook. We do not know where it came from but it is definitely false."
Kate recently also joked that if we believed everything in the tabloids then she'd have been pregnant for the last two years!

BTW--the picture above is the recently released campaign for Just Cavalli Spring '09 shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot. What do you think? I normally find Kate's campaign work a little boring but there is something about this picture that I'm really digging.

Generation Progress Kick Off Event!

"GP is a Boston-based political action committee that works to raise funds for progressive Congressional candidates around the country; our belief is that young professionals in Boston are eager to be involved, but cannot necessarily afford fundraising gala tickets at $200/plate, and also that our donations can make a larger impact in regions where "Democrat" is not the norm, by being directed toward the campaigns of forward-thinking candidates who are facing conservative constituencies and opponents. Following these ideas, we have set out to host social events through which we generate donations to allocate to progressive campaigns.

Less than a year after its inception, the organization has donated $2,000 raised from young, hip Bostonians to Congressional campaigns nationwide during the last election cycle. Proceeds from our last event, an Autumn Wine Tasting, were sent to the Georgia runoff campaigns in support of the Democratic challenger to the Senate seat. We have hosted a private cocktail event, a wine tasting, debate-watch parties and picnics; we're looking to expand further this year.

Our next event is our first since the election, and is a celebration of the future of Generation Progress. We're very excited to have transitioned into 2009, revamped our logo, website and events calendar, and are gearing up to provide support for candidates in the 2010 midterm elections. The kickoff event (April 4, at The Savant Project in Brigham Circle) will feature live music, and each donation includes one free drink. We're thrilled to be spreading the word, and the event is shaping up to be a fabulous evening."

Blair Waldorf does not wear Uggs.

Someone sent the above photo to Fashionista this week. It shows the cool kids supposedly filming a scene for the show. But would Blair Waldorf, scorner of Tory Burch and lover of custom Valentino headbands, ever be caught dead in Uggs?
No. The answer is no. Never.
Don't get me wrong I live in them from November to March because I have no one to impress and the snow here sucks.
But Blair would never!

Between this and everything about Little J lately I hope my favorite addiction isn't going down the tubes.

More TopShop Party...
