I just found out that my rapist is dead. Not only is he dead, but he ended up killing a lot of women. I always wondered if he would rape again, but I never thought he would graduate to murder.

I was 10 years old when my mother took me to the movies to see “Dirty Dancing.” I, like so many women, fell head over heels in love—with the movie, with the soundtrack, and most definitely with Patrick Swayze. I loved that movie so much that when I couldn’t sleep at night I used to recite the movie in my head line by line.

This Fashion Week we went backstage at a number of shows, and the makeup artists and hairstylists we spoke to were calm, cool, and welcoming even when there was only an hour or so before the models had to be dressed and ready to walk down the runway. The atmosphere backstage before Threeasfour, however, was a little different. Who knows what caused the storm — maybe the complicated makeup that required absolute precision to apply or the fact that celebrities were involved in the show — but it was tense back there. The lead makeup artist and hairstylist were wonderful once they were able to step away from their work to chat, but they had their hands full. Thirty minutes before the show was to begin, someone came back and announced that hair and makeup was to be complete “AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE” so the models could get into the clothes. And, just as I was leaving, I bumped into Sean Lennon, who was being interviewed and photographed like mad, adding another element of excitement to the scene. (I also thought I saw Yoko Ono, but now I’m pretty sure it was just a cute, middle-aged Asian woman.)
The reason for Sean Lennon and Yoko Ono’s presence was because Threeasfour designers Adi Gil, Angela Donhauser, and Gabriel Asfour were inspired by Yoko Ono’s dot drawings for the spring 2010 collection. Some of the drawings were turned into prints and used on elements of the collection. The dot theme extended to the makeup, too. Check it out, after the jump! Keep reading »
Fashion Week isn’t just a time for crazy-expensive brands that are out of most people’s price ranges to show what they have coming down the pipeline. Besides the fine looks we saw from Snuggie, Ann Taylor also hosted a show, attended by important editors and celebrities, including Elle‘s Joe Zee, Vanessa Williams, Gretchen Mol, Mena Suvari, Amanda Bynes, Kelly Rutherford, and more.
The clothes shown weren’t what the retailer will be selling come spring 2010, like most shows. Instead, they were items that are available right now. While the whole thing was a marketing ploy to get more people interested in Ann Taylor clothes, it might have worked. Vanessa Williams admitted to being a fan of the dress she wore for the event, which fit her off the rack, and Katherine McPhee told WWD she loves their accessories.

Flirting is a body language movement that portrays many sensual words, without words. I learned recently that men and women who look for partners on-line are well schooled in the art of flirting, dating and mating. Even in a relationship or marriage, a little bit of flirting goes a long way. Here are seven tips to get him in the mood for loving.
1. Leave a sexy note in his jacket, briefcase, or on his computer screen if he is working virtually from home. Continue reading… Keep reading »
