This Week
On The Avenue

  • Girl of the Week

    There are some actors who phone it in, and then there are actors who rip the phone off the wall and smash it. Meryl Streep, our girl of the week, is one of those actresses. In her latest film Ricki and the Flash, released August 7, she gives another breathtaking performance as a failed rockstar who returns home to re-connect with the family she abandoned to pursue her dreams. Complete with funky braids, leather pants and mad guitar skills, Meryl proves once again that she can play any role and shows us all, for the hundredth time, why she deserves the title of “Greatest Living Actress”.

  • Summer Shades

    The new Tom Ford Sheer Lipcolor is the perfect match for that gorgeous Hamptons tan that we know you are dying to show off. Light and moisturizing, the lipstick is available in shades of coral and pink that are bright, but subtle enough to look natural and relaxed, perfect for these last few days on the beach.

  • Legend at Work

    If you would like to see a true legend at work, make sure to head over to the MoMA on Friday for a live performance by Yoko Ono. As part of her current exhibition at the museum, Yoko Ono: One Woman Show 1960-1971, the artist will be performing with the Plastic Ono Band, a conceptual project she and her late husband, John Lennon, created around 1968. Ono described it as a band “that would never exist . . . that didn’t have a set number of members . . . that could accommodate anyone who wanted to play with it.” Tickets are $65 and bound to go fast, so make sure to get yours.
