Alison Brie Gets Her Fashion On in ALEXA

Thursday, March 17th, 2016

This week’s latest is a feature I did for The New York Post with the gorgeous, quirky and hilarious Alison Brie. We met at a cafe by the Hollywood sign to talk about fashion, love and work. And there was a lot of work to talk about.

Alison has been in so much it’s almost hard to keep track of her: Mad Men, Community, The Five-Year Engagement, How to Be Single, Get a Job, and the one I’m most looking forward to: the new ITV British period drama from Julian Fellowes (from Downton Abbey) called Dr. Thorne, in which Alison will play an American character.

And she shared some funny memories about growing up and some insights to her engagement to James Franco’s younger brother Dave Franco.

You know what? I’ll just let the feature story tell you all you need to know about what she’s up to these days. You can read the whole fashion ALEXA special on the New York Post site: Alison Brie: The Biggest Misconception About Me is That I’m Wholesome. It was pure fun chatting with her. Hope you enjoy.

Shai Anything: My InStyle Magazine Interview with Shailene Woodley

Wednesday, February 17th, 2016

The March 2016 issue of InStyle magazine has a lot of cool things going for it: It’s a big, fat, juicy issue full of new spring fashion; the magazine has a brand new re-design; and it features a cover story I wrote.

I sat down with actress Shailene Woodley—star of the upcoming film The Divergent Series: Allegiant Part 1—to talk about her upcoming film, her new projects (she’s currently filming the HBO series Big Little Lies with Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman for which I’ll promptly be hitting that binge-me-now button) and all things life, love and happiness.

Over dinner at Akasha in Culver City, we talked a lot about travel, fashion, confidence, and learning to appreciate the small moments to reach the ultimate goal: contentment. You can get a taste for the story in this excerpt from my Shailene Woodley interview on InStyle.com where she explains that “happiness is not something I need to achieve.”

Here, she also talks about her recent travels through India and gives a short video interview on the InStyle.com site.

You can pick the issue on stands now or grab the full digital edition of the March 2016 issue. Here’s a taste of what we talked about so you can see why it’s worth it.

Talking Weddings with Adorably Gorgeous Fashion Star Jamie Chung

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015

I had a new kind of topic to delve into recently: weddings, for the New York Post ALEXA Weddings issue.

And I couldn’t have been luckier with the first celebrity to grace its cover: Jamie Chung. Actress. Fashion maven (you must check out her site whatthechung.com, which will make you drool). Cool-ass woman. And fiancé for just a little bit longer, until she marries fellow actor Bryan Greenberg this fall. (I’m counting the days until their film It’s Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong is released.)

Eva Mendes: Hey, Girl

Friday, March 13th, 2015

My other cover story this month was Eva Mendes for the April 2015 issue of Women’s Health. And the story has been garnering quite a lot of press because the actress/fashion designer/new mom is a believer in keeping her private life private.

Lucky for us, she did open a window into her amazing life, and we got to have a fun chat at the magazine photo shoot in Venice, CA!

Rachel Zoe’s Fun Fashion Tales

Fashion

I simply could not have enjoyed chatting with stylist Rachel Zoe more for the September 2012 issue of Glamour. She’s like a savant of fashion, full of spot-on advice for women’s bodies and—as you already know—an absolute hoot.

Here’s my four page feature with Rachel as she tells her own story of how she got the styling bug (it’s pretty cute), her ultimate fashion Dos and Don’ts, and how she feels about haters, judgers and taking the high road. Read Rachel Zoe’s full piece on Glamour.com.
