This Thanksgiving, I'm thankful for my family of friends and the friends in my family.  And for decent work and a safe home filled with some fabulous clothing in New York City.  Last night I had some post-Priscilla Queen of the Desert Brooklyn Lagers with my dear friend Maeve at the original P.J. Clarke's on 55th Street.  Clarke's is a true classic of a bar that, while often packed with obnoxious people, is manned by true gentlemen who play Motown and classic rock and remember your drink order and place your mobile phone in napkin-lined glasses to protect them from the bar's spillage.

I'm thankful for charming places to imbibe with my friends, that is for sure.  Happy Thanksgiving!

I find the whole thing of Ryan McGinley to be a little annoying sometimes: the Levi's ads plastered all over New York City, the aloof interviews, the ubiquity.  But he does create some magical pieces of photography, and I was quite enamored of this recent work, Purple Beacon, now on view at his current London show Wandering Comma.

de la Mode

Tilda Swinton, in Haider Ackermann, and Haider Ackermann were both recipients of Marie Claire's Prix de la Mode awards at the French Embassy in Madrid last week.  Tilda was one of the first in the public eye to wear Haider, and she wears it well.
