I have been a road warrior this week. I travelled to los angeles to shoot a W magazine cover followed by a Vogue magazine cover (sorry I cant reveal the identities of the celebs we photographed but I do love them both). Hit a plane to Az ( my home town) to attend the grand opening of the new BARNEYS store in Scottsdale. I hob nobbed with SImon Doonan (creative director of Barneys who is always a hoot and a holler), Robert Black (visited his cool new vintage store FASHION by Robert Black- and yes I will be sending him many bottles of my shade called FASHION) and a host of other Scottsdale fashionistas. I jetted back to LA for a commercial shoot with Ellen Degenerous (cant reveal any secrets about Idol either-- I know- I am just no fun). I had the honor of manicuring Portia and Ellen for their nuptials last year and I also serenaded them. I am going to be singing that tune in my show at FEINSTEINS on November 2nd and Ellen actually suggested that I tell the audience the story. So I have her blessing- pretty great! Then I flew BACK to Arizona for a Nordstrom trend show that was tons of fun. Sunday was my birthday and we arrived in NY in the evening and had a feast with my great friend Kathryn Sumner MacLeod who shares the same bday with me. Phew. Now I am back at work and shooting the spring Yves Saint Laurent campaign. Phew! Life is good, no? My new shades Happy Birthday, Wicked Game , Dont Tell MAMA and the Celebrate set are a huge success. Thank you to all of you for getting behind strong modern colors on your nails and toes!
