:: The new place ‘mmhmmm’ (or is it mhhmmm?) has been open for a bit inside the Standard on Sunset — a few party fliers w odd ball people attached have been floating on Facebook but nothing substantial to note.

:: Ford Motor Company and MILK Studios are teaming up for an “exhibition showcasing five artists, through sculpture, painting, music, photography and choreography”, the event is called “Wall to Wall: The Fusion Collective.”

Vogue’s New Book ‘The Editor’s Eye’

A new book, Vogue: The Editor’s Eye, celebrates the work of Vogue’s boundary-pushing fashion editors. Throughout its 120-year history, Vogue has been creating arresting images intended to make the reader’s eye stop. These are images that evoke desire—for something as real as a dress or a lipstick, or as intangible as a whole new body language, attitude, or paradigm. Some are images of stately, introspective calm; others make the heart leap with an adrenaline charge of energy, reflecting a century of change in fashion, society, and culture. Pre-Order “Vogue: The Editor’s Eye” by Conde Nast, Foreword by Anna Wintour, Introduction by Hamish Bowles for $45 at
