How best to start the week?

Well, with a great cup of coffee from some of my favorite places…
RBC NYC… they HAD a Slayer!
Settle in at Coutume in Paris with their irresistible affogato, sigh.
Watch the world go by with a pour over at SOK Summer Espresso Lab (a pop-up coffee bar… now closed) in Amsterdam.
For the best coffee in Charleston, SC, I (used to) go to Hope&Union (I am sensing at trend here?).
In Rome, do as the Romans do – Sant Eustachio!

Who knew the hairstyle I sported at 12 years old would be part of a designer’s future Spring fashion show?
Obviously I could have posted an image of myself at 12, but I’ll spare you that haunting image. The hairstyle definitely works better on these models at the Rick Owens Spring 2013 fashion show.

One of my favorite features from the NY Times is T Magazine’s Model-Morphosis, which shows before and after images of models through an interactive slider.
Still images below are examples from previous NY Fashion Weeks.
Check out the truly interactive Model-Morphosis feature from T Magazine for some amazing before and afters photographed by Greg Kessler!

Yep, you guessed it. It’s NY Fashion Week! Every fashion oriented blog is inundated with fashion show images for Spring/Summer 2013.
And again, rather than focusing on images from the shows themselves here are images from behind the scenes…
Hair anyone? Seeing the above image makes me realize how much my job doesn’t suck.
Even models have other work to do backstage than staying pretty. I hated geometry!
It takes more than a village to get models fashion show ready.
