While I love some of today's young designers, I've always felt Giorgio Armani's appreciation for classic lines and aesthetics will keep him at the forefront of dressing sophisticated women everywhere. No matter what the occasion, you'll never be out of step--or out of fashion--with his pieces as part of your ensemble

April In Paris

Paris is fabulous anytime time but it reaches a zenith in April when Spring flowers are in bloom and the heavy scent of love is in the air. Nanette Lepore has done her part to make sure every lucky lady who arrives in the Fashion capitol of the world looks the part, whether its day or night. Her gold short trench is elegant and dramatic, yet simple enough to flatter most figures.
I can't wait for glorious weather on the Champs Elysee!

Love Zone

Zone Chef is the one of the ways that I keep myself fit and trim. They are the premier diet-delivery service in America, offering meals that are delivered to your home either on a daily or weekly basis. Their choices are based on the Nobel Prize-winning science of the Zone Diet 40-30-30 formula (40% carbs, 30% protein and 30% favorable fats). Deliveries are determined relative to ultimate weight-loss goals. With bikini season fast-approaching, now is the time to make the transition from winter-weight doldrums to that summer glamorous sun-worshipper physique. Visit

Bully For El Bulli!

If travel happens to take you to one of my favorite countries, Spain, you must visit one of my favorite restaurants, El Bulli. Run by one of the best chefs in the world, Ferran Adria, this must-see in Roses is an acknowledged mecca for foodies. The 35-course grand tasting menu is a complete symphony of tastes,textures and wonder, as evidenced by the oysters topped with smoked Iberian pancetta above. From start to finish, the dining experience revolves around intimacy, topped with an air of exclusivity. The restaurant holds only 50 people, has just one seating per night and limits its operation from the months of March through October. That means make your travel plans well in advance--out of the 400,000 requests they receive for reservations, only 2,000 per season are filled--unless, of course, that special someone in your life has the right connections.

Maldives Paradise

When winter is in full force and I really need to get away from it all with someone special (beyond a quick jaunt to the Caribbean or Mexico), my preference is the Maldives. Located in the Indian Ocean and comprising over 1,000 individual islands, the white sand beaches and crystal clear water have served as fertile settings for more naughty thoughts than I care to divulge. If times call for a really relaxing and romantic getaway, aim for the resorts located on Soneva Fushi and Soneva Gili. As the photo above shows, they promise the utmost in quality, attention to detail and, of course, total pampering.

Spring Fashion Is Just Around The Corner

Flirty, bouncy, sexy.....these are operative words for catching (and keeping) the man of your dreams.....and for Spring Fashion 2007. Zac Posen does a great job capturing this feeling througout each design in his wonderful collection. The designs are fun, but with an understated quality that allows plenty of room for your individual personality, attitude and assets to shine through. With plenty of places to go, so many wonderful things to do, and so little time to waste, it's important to look smashing....especially when the man of our dreams could be lurking around the next corner!

Fireworks in Florence

Ladies, what better way to spend a romantic getaway than to head to Florence? If you're not spending your waking moments nestled in a sumptuous retreat, do the next best thing and stay at Villa San Michele. Conveniently located minutes away from the main galleries, sightseeing and shopping that annually make the city a world-class destination, this glorious 15th century former monastery (in nearby Fiersole) offers top-notch service, breathtaking vistas and an understated ambiance guaranteed to satisfy the most discriminating of tastes. With only 46 rooms and an outdoor restaurant (pictured above) gently caressing the rolling hills of Tuscany, what more could a girl ask for?
