An Evening To Remember

8th March, 2013

I often feel like my life exists only in extremes: I’m forever having either the best or worst day ever ~ either schlepping around town with 10 garment bags in the sleeting New York hail-rain or… you know, donning a Marchesa gown to have dinner with Elton John on Oscar Night. He told me I looked ravishing and gave me the sweetest kiss and it beat everything ever. And we wore Chopard diamonds and watched the sun rise with the stars|JAMIE + KELLY| both wear Chopard jewelry, Marchesa gowns, Kotur bags, and Jerome C. Rousseau shoes

    Kelly, you inspire me every day with your life. Whenever I feel stressed at school or I loose motivation, I come to your blog and peruse the seemingly endless beauty with which your life is filled. You are a true inspiration for me! Someday, I hope to be able to create and live just as you. Thanks so much for the posts! 🙂

    When I was in high school on my way to London for the first time with a choir group, there was a man in the airport in Chicago with regal white hair dressed in all black with a huge garment bag and all of us sleep deprived high school kids started guessing what was in the bag. When we boarded I was standing right next to him and decided to just ask him — he told me it was a dress for his wife and they were flying to London for the weekend to see a show and attend a party thrown by their friend Elton John. Annnnd I felt ridiculous for asking. But it makes for a good story!

  • Oh my god, THE GLAMOUR! I love this so so much. You look like you’re in a fairytale

    I keep forgetting how truly special nights like the one you described above are – and you truly show the magic. When you live and work around these events, you become a little jaded – even bored. These pictures of you and Jamie bring back what these nights are supposed to be : ) Thanks for reminding me! You brought back the faith – at least until awards season starts again – then I will look to you again for the same inspiration! xo

    You are beautiful and the dresses special!

    The photographs in these amazing green are perfect, love them definitely!

    beautiful as always!

    I wish you’d give easier access to your archives…I remember when I first found your page (maybe two years ago), I went back to your very first post. I loved seeing your style evolve and also just how crazy you used to be. I understand you might not like to look back at some of those outfits but I really think they bring personality to the blog, which can help counter some of the complaints that you’ve gotten more commercial.

  • petra lorietta

    Lovely pictures! 🙂 The dresses are stunning!

    Dear Kelly, I love your style and think you’re gorgeous but would love to see you ease up more and look more natural in your photos, given this is a blog, not a Vogue cover shoot. x

  • Two beautiful and glamorous Hollywood sirens! Indelible memories, I’m sure…

  • Jel Love
