The autumn/winter 2015 show that will take place in February will be the first collection that Ford will show in Los Angeles. The relocation will inevitably cause difficulties for show attendees who will have to decide whether to attend the show in Los Angeles or miss the first day of London Fashion Week which is scheduled to take place from February 20th – 24th 2015.

Welcome to #TBT (throwback Thursday for those who don’t have internet), a new weekly column on the Truffle where we will feature our favorite movie and tv show clips that show the most key truths of Los Angeles. To kick it off we want to bring you back to a time when the Beverly Hills Hotel was owned by Jewish people from LA and the only boycott you would see was over who got a Pink Card.
We were recently at a party speaking with a guy who goes to USC (majoring in sociology) who told us he’s currently interning for “the Entrepreneur-in-Residence.” We were like, come again. He explained that Eric Garcetti appointed his boss to work in this position for the city of Los Angeles.

From Kimye’s OBGYN to Morgan Freeman’s ‘medical guru’ Dr. Soram Khalsa to Steve Tisch’s favorite neurosurgeon, The Hollywood Reporter details nearly 500 doctors used by entertainment executives and actors. If posting requests for referrals on Facebook has gotten you nowhere, this may be the read for you. Alongside the list are related topics ranging from a rating of L.A.’s Emergency Rooms (our vote goes to UCLA) to why L.A. schoolkids are getting sick to a couple ways to beat death altogether. #TruffleNotes: It’s not totally uncommon to house a cryogenic machine these days, at least in LA.
What Celebrities have their face on the Palm’s Walls in West Hollywood?? Leonardo DiCaprio, Paris Hilton, Nicky Hilton, Ben Stiller, Rob Lowe, Christian Slater, the Cast of Mad Men, Kirk and Spock, Fred Flintstone, Barney Rubble, and even Yogi Bear. About a year ago, we heard the Palm was considering a move to Canon Drive. Our immediate question was — how are they going to handle all those caricatures of regulars and celebrities layered all over the walls and ceilings — many dating back to the very, very old days.
