Simply perfect, always leave it to the French. Lanvin’s early Spring windows are stunning, simple, chic and I’m jealous. this is exactly my favorite type of display. The COLORS are luscious, After having done display for years I understand the use of packaging. I cant tell you how many times I’ve resorted to bags or boxes. It’s always been the Display mans last choice [due to lack of budget or concept] Budget was not a concern for Lanvin and look what a great set of window they produced.
Way before Paris Hilton there was Mrs. Zsa Zsa Hilton…The Gabor sisters were a glamour trifecta Zsa Zsa ,Eva and Magda, talk about sister act! It was Zsa Zsa who out shown her sisters, Eva made up for lost screen time when she landed the part in “Green Acres” and Magda was a sensible girl.
Her acting career thrust her into the limelight, she appeared in a number of films the most famous being Moulin Rouge . My favorite The Queen of Outer Space is the lowest budget camp film of all time. The story of a planet inhabited by a race of Amazon women, led by an evil disfigured queen [who wears a mask] She is hell-bent on destroying all the men on Earth. Claiming that it was wars waged by men that were responsible for her mangled face [sounds a bit like a John Waters film] Of course Zsa hates the queen and conspires with the visiting spacemen to over throw her. The perfect part for Zsa Zsa, she just couldn’t help herself when it came to men.
Gabor has been married nine times. She was divorced seven times, and one marriage was annulled. Her husbands, in chronological order, are:
At a social affair, c. 1954 accompanied by international playboy and diplomat Porfirio Rubirosa (behind her, to the left)
- Burhan Asaf Belge (1937 – 1941; divorced)
- Conrad Hilton (April 10, 1942 – 1947; divorced)
- George Sanders (April 2, 1949 – April 2, 1954; divorced)
- Herbert Hutner (November 5, 1962 – March 3, 1966; divorced)
- Joshua S. Cosden, Jr. (March 9, 1966 – October 18, 1967; divorced)
- Jack Ryan (January 21, 1975 – August 24, 1976; divorced)
- Michael O’Hara (August 27, 1976 – 1983; divorced)
- Felipe de Alba (April 13, 1983 – April 14, 1983; annulled)
- Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt (August 14, 1986 – present)
Gabor’s divorces inspired her to make numerous quotable puns and innuendos about her marital (and extramarital) history. She commented: “I am a marvelous housekeeper: Every time I leave a man I keep his house. When asked, “How many husbands have you had?”, she was quoted as responding, “You mean other than my own?” While Gabor was still married to Conrad Hilton, she once admitted to having sexual relations with her stepson Nicky, future husband of Elizabeth Taylor.
I’ve saved the best for last “The Queen of Outer Space” for all you Sci Fi aficionados, The uniforms on the space men are the same ones used in “Forbidden Planet”
Mac celebrates 30 years with a creative approach, designers endorse the infinite possibilities of the tool in thier art. 3D printing is changing everything. Thanks to Fashion and Mash
Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen is one of several fashion creatives to star in a new ad from Apple, a spot filmed using a series of iPhones over the course of just one day.
1.24.12, as it’s called (for the day it was shot), is a celebration of 30 years of the Macintosh. When the Mac was introduced, it promised to put technology in the hands of the people, Apple says, launching “a generation of innovators who continue to change the world”.
Van Herpen is seen in her Amsterdam studio working on one of her elaborate creations at about 43 seconds in. While many fashion designers work on a Mac these days, she is one of a few who also turns her ideas into reality using a 3D printer.
“Iris van Herpen initially saw the computer as a strictly two-dimensional environment. For someone who often begins the creative…

Yesterday it was 48 degrees the snow from previous storm was gone, not so this morning its coming down thick and wet. For a brief moment my thoughts had turned to Spring but now it seems winter is here to stay. Time for the bread and milk run again. off I went to the “Stop and Go” our local 24/7 junk food resource. OK, bread, half and half, a can of coffee and a few packets of ramen noodles, that’s all I need to survive the latest assault. Waiting in line I noticed the cashier unpacking new product. Upon closer inspection I saw it was a local favorite Zitner’s chocolate covered Easter eggs. It’s 20 degrees snow is falling and its Easter? I am fully aware that in my profession pushing the next season is simply a matter of course, but REALLY Easter Eggs? I’m not ready for this, even though their butter creams with dark chocolate are heaven.
I asked for a few when she told me that will be 3.67 I was shocked, these used to be 35 cents a piece, now they are 1.19. Oh man! To add insult to injury they shrunk to half the size, [just like everything has of late, even Oreos] I’m just not meant for this world anymore. I hate sounding like my father in the 60’s complaining that his Chevy new was 2.500. “My first used Oldsmobile sold for 100 bucks” he would exclaim. I can’t even imagine his reaction if he knew that Chevy loaded would be 26.000 today. A price which sounds reasonable to me. Cars are not candy Easter eggs, they don’t shrink with increasing materials costs [just pay more for options you don’t need] To prove my point look at the photo with a quarter next to the egg. Proof positive that a dollar is the new quarter.
