This Week
On The Avenue

  • Girl of the Week

    Our Girl of the Week is Cara Delevingne, who this Friday finally traded the catwalk for the red carpet with the release of her first major film, Paper Towns, and we’re so excited. Not only has the model turned actress always been a favorite of ours with her quirky personality and cool girl factor, but the release of the film means that for the past few weeks we’ve been seeing her and her amazing outfits everywhere! From the classic Jenny Packham she wore in Paris to the bold shimmery Saint Laurent dress she rocked at the New York Premiere, we can’t get enough.

  • Hand to Toes

    The unwritten, yet widely circulated, rule of fashion is that you are either obsessed with shoes or with handbags, never with both. Manolo Blahnik is challenging that rule with this month’s launch of his first collection of evening clutches, inspired by some of his more ornate footwear. Trade in your Hangisi pumps for the night and switch to a bejeweled clutch, to extend your love of accessories a little beyond the heel.

  • One Last Call

    With the end of the month, comes the end of many of New York’s biggest exhibitions of the season. August is a notoriously slow month for the city, so make sure to get your arts and culture fix this week and check out the  “Passing Leap” exhibition at Hauser and Wirth and the group show at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery. On a more positive note, Peter Beston’s exhibition at Remsenburg Academy in the Hamptons opened last week and runs through August 9.
