Carol Alt's Empowering Quote Will Encourage Older Women To Demand A Little R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Older celebrities are having quite the moment in fashion as of late -- Joni Mitchell just graced the cover of New York Magazine at 71, Helen Mirren is the face of L'Oreal at 69 and Joan Didion is modeling for Celine at 80. The images of those women are a step in the right direction, but '80s supermodel Carol Alt says there's still too much pressure on women to stay youthful. "The issue is the media portrays younger women as more desirable," Alt said speaking to Biography.com. And that needs to change. Alt explained: Goldie Hawn once perfectly summed up Hollywood's attitude toward older women, "There are only three ages for women in Hollywood -- Babe, District Attorney, and Driving Miss Daisy." At least in modeling, Alt says, ageism has gotten better since she hit the scene in the '80s. "When I got into the modeling industry 35 years ago, the life span of a model was like five years... Then all of a sudden I was 27, and I was still doing it. Then I was 30, and I was sti ...

A Holiday Haven for the Shopping-Averse: Park Avenue Garage
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Apparently I am an odd bird -- at least that's how I feel every time I tell my friends I hate shopping. Note that I didn't say I hate new things; I just hate the process of shopping. I used to like to shop, but over the years I've become frustrated by the crazy crowds, the tiresome searching through a sea of products and, in many (too many) stores, crappy customer service. Add the holiday crush and I want to stick a fork in my eye. As much as I can, I shop online. So if I am going to venture into the fray, I make sure to choose my destinations carefully. With that in mind, one store at the top of my holiday shopping list is Park Avenue Garage (PAG). Nestled in midtown Manhattan, this luxury pop-up store will hold court on November 20-23 (11am-6pm) in the former West 56th Street townhouse shared by Elizabeth Taylor and Michael Todd -- sweeping staircases and sky-high ceilings included. Gently used and new fashion, beauty and home merchandise will take over four floors and will include ...

Tom Murro: Girls Howl for Taylor Lautner at Grown Ups 2 Premiere in NYC
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The premiere for Grown Ups 2 was held last Wednesday night at AMC Lincoln Square Theater on the in NYC, drawing quite an A-list crowd. I walked in with, and sat by Taylor Lautner, yes girls, I said Taylor Lautner, who, earlier in the day was filming his newest movie Tracers. And let me tell you, it was hot! I mean, the weather was hot, not the fact that I walked in with Taylor Lautner. Then again, that was kind of hot too, except walking near him made me look somewhat like a barnacle! Taylor was a nice guy (I say "guy" even though I still see him as a kid, but that's just because I'm old...and maybe a little condescending). Taylor dove right into the crowd of screaming girls. Of course he was flanked by some huge Russian finger-breaker-looking bodyguards who, next to me, made me look like a finger -- a pinky to be exact. Taylor spent most of his time graciously posing for pictures, and spent extra time with a young girl in a wheelchair in the front of the crowd. ...

Liz Smith: Mark Wahlberg Delivers Pain and Gain and Just a Little Controversy
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
"God! I need a horse tranquilizer after that movie!" said one patron staggering out of a screening of the new Mark Wahlberg/Dwayne Johnson flick, Pain and Gain. "Oh, how lucky" said the event organizer Andrew Saffir of The Cinema Society, "That's what we're serving." And he wasn't kidding. A towering, crop-haired blonde waitress with the Eiffel Tower tattooed on her calf, offered a drink with fumes so strong, only the alkies could take it. (Horse tranquilizers actually play a vital part in the movie.) The after-party happened at the James Hotel and was studded with 50 Cent, Joshua Bell, Carol Alt, Dan Abrams, Paul Haggis, Carlos Leon, Scott Gorenstein, Ben Shenkman and the usual men and women too beautiful to even bother having names. You can read last week's Hollywood Reporter on the rivalry between Saffir, a relative newcomer to the party scene, and the iconic Queen of the Night Peggy Siegal. Hilarious! "I don't hate Peggy!" said Andrew, when I mentioned the art ...

New York Fashion Week’s biggest gimmick: the ex-supermodel
Ft.com Financial Times Blogs - over 4 years
One of the biggest trends to come out of New York fashion week thus far has been the use of once-famous, formerly-retired, suddenly-resurrected models. Naomi Campbell opened Zac Posen’s show, followed by Isabeli Fontana; Marimekko had Carol Alt, Pat Cleveland and Carmen Dell'Orefice; and Alexander Wang had Liberty Ross, who now lives in California, and recently made headlines when her husband, Rupert Sanders, had an affair with actress Kristin Stewart. When these women appear on the catwalk they generally get lots of applause, but I wonder who actually is benefitting from the relationship? Continue reading »

Regina Weinreich: Documentaries of Summer: Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry, Detropia, About Face
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Is it too soon to think about Oscar contenders for non-fiction films? Several summer/ early fall releases are especially noteworthy. Not only is Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry the story of a major visual artist in China who has felt the wrath of his government for speaking out, but a film that utilizes the social media, as this savvy artist's blogs, tweets, and emails have had a huge impact on his artistic/ political message. If all art is political, making it is more dramatic, brave, and essential for artists in repressive regimes. Alison Klayman, an American and recent college grad in 2008 went to China, not knowing precisely what she would do there. Asked to videotape Ai Weiwei, she fell into a subject much larger than a sculptor and conceptual artist. After the earthquake in Chengdu that caused the deaths of thousands of school children, Ai Weiwei was outspoken about the poor building construction. He criticized the Olympics in China after participating as creative consultant o ...
