THINK PINK!

Photo of the day: THINK PINK!
Think pink! Think pink! when you shop for summer clothes.
Think pink! think pink! if you want that quel-que chose.
Red is dead, blue is through, Green’s obscene, brown’s taboo.
And there is not the slightest excuse for plum or puce or chartreuse.
Think pink! forget that Dior says rust and black.
Think pink! who cares if the new look will set you back.
Now, I wouldn’t presume to tell a woman what a woman oughtta think,
But tell her if she’s gotta think: think pink!
“Think Pink!” sung by Kay Thompson in the 1957 Audrey Hepburn film “Funny Face”

From the gallery: PAUL NEWMAN

PAUL NEWMAN: I can say that I have been kissed by Paul Newman – can you?!

I was attending a dog fashion show, thanks to an invite from my dear friend Susan Godwin, at the (soon to be torn down) Pennsylvania Hotel opposite Madison Square Garden. It was quite a show, sequins and feathers everywhere. Dazzling gowns, crisp tuxedos…and the people looked good too! At the entrance there was the usual reception line with the photographers, celebrities and celeb-wannabe’s. Then in walked Paul Newman, the all white basset hound with ice blue eyes. Paul took a liking (or, er…licking) to me, rolling on his back to have his belly scratched, then came the big wet tongue. As I got up from our little love fest, I looked down and got this shot. No matter how down and out I feel, how bad a day it has been, I look at this photo and I can’t stop laughing.
