It's the little things, you know...


From the Cameron Diaz article in June's issue of Vogue by Robert Sullivan:

"Among her friends on hand is the makeup artist Gucci Westman, whom the fashion familiar know as the wife of David Neville, fashion director of Rag & Bone. Gucci is also the global artistic director of Revlon"

Not to be picky here, Mr. Sullivan, but I'm pretty sure the "fashion familiar" would know Gucci Westman for being an accomplished makeup artist and artistic director for many world renowned makeup brands first, and THEN because she is married to a man who a few years ago started his very cool fashion company.

JUST SAYIN'

Tell it, sister. How does this stuff slip under the net? Your blog is one I visit daily, by the way. Thanks Laia x

UGH. I'm so glad you're around to catch peeps up on this! Like her being the wife of someone with a cool career is nearly as important as her own career. GAH.

Vogue is like that. Remember the 'women in power' issue? all of them were in power because of their husbands. lame effort, vogue.

paganharlot: well, im gonna have to disaagree with you there. for the last power issue, with the exception of carla bruni, they are all indeed worthy of being included. I always saw it as them carrying out sort of first ladies theme throughout... but to say that queen rania or melinda gates have done nothing other than be married is ... not right?

Claire said...

yeah, I have to agree with you here. I had no idea who her husband was until I read that article.

uuuuh i totally agree home slice.

that was quite presumptuous of vogue to make such an assumption.

between you me and the fencepost i didn't even know she was married never mind to the fashion director of rag & boone.
