‘Soul Survivor’ interview feature talking about my ‘Affairs of The Heart’ –when magazines were interested in what you had to say about your music, writers cared enough to do their homework.. and focus was not celebrity gossip or how many social media followers you had.
It’s been a while since I had a girl’s night out with my longtime friend Jeannine Braden. Jeannine is a stylist, designer and entrepreneur (she once owned one two of the hottest boutiques in Los Angeles, Flair in Fred Segal) as well as other businesses and ventures. Her recent venture is called ‘Say The Sun’ going to her Venice Beach, California roots with a line of chic and whimsical flipflops.
She invited me to attend Cindy Crawfords ‘Becoming’ book celebration party. The book is full of classic and never seen images and insightful anecdotes. It was a gorgeous setting and event. Hosted by Eric Buterbaugh Florals and Guthy Renker’s Meaningful Beauty by Cindy Crawford.
Cindy was so kind and approachable; engaging with all of the guests along with her two children and husband, businessman Randy Gerber. It was a family affair. I might add her daughter Kaia is truly uncannily a twin of her legendary model Mom.
While there, it was nice to reconnect with Peter Savic, one of fashion’s most brilliant and respected hair guru’s. Peter and I collaborated on several notable style moments along my journey a while ago including the iconic image from GAP; a trendsetting celebrity ad campaign in 89. It was actually Peter’s idea to go short for this campaign..I wanted a change and didn’t want to be trapped by long hair. “Darling, we must go short, very short..” in his distinct accent and tone..I loved it. I was so happy to see him after so many years.
The journey is never long in the company of good friends and colleagues. It’s nice when you’re happy to see people!
