This Week
On The Avenue

  • Girl of the Week

    Our girl of the week is 70s icon Jane Birkin, who last week requested that her name be removed from the Birkin Bag after watching a PETA documentary about the alleged inhumane production practices at two of Hermès’s crocodile skin suppliers. We love her for her style, for her coolness and especially for not backing down from her beliefs. Go Jane!

  • Eyes Wide Open

    If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then eye lashes are curtains, and seeing as it’s summer, we’re sure you want those curtains as open as possible. NARS Audacious Mascara has a unique plastic comb that with over 200 bristles, will allow you to bring length and fullness to your lashes, all while not venturing into clumpy, smudgy, raccoon eye territory. Go ahead, let people look in.

  • Between Sea and Sky

    A new exhibition of Roy Lichtenstein’s work will open August 8 at Guild Hall in the Hamptons. The exhibition, which is titled Between Sea and Sky, will focus on the artist’s fascination with land and seascapes, and will be comprised of 30 paintings dating from the 1960s to the 1990s. Sponsored by Larry Gagosian and the Broad Art Foundation, the exhibition will give Hamptonites a glimpse into Lichtenstein’s opinion of their gorgeous beaches and will celebrate “the artist’s abiding relationship with the East End of New York and all that it inspired”.
