Just In Time For Your New Year's Eve Revelry, a Simple Chignon

Recently my very hip friend who runs a very hip company called ironically enough Hipguide invited me to a most swank affair. Rather then stress about what to wear, which I have taken care of thru the many sample sales that i recently patronized (more on credit card debt later) I stressed about what to do with the hair. In a moment of divine providence I remembered a video from Nexxus, I
clicked my way to Nexxus online, where a short instructional video gave me the equivlant of Jimmy Choo's at $50.00, a chic but simple hairstyle!

Argentina and MUG

Argentinean Dossier as written by MUG

Not to pull a Latina version of the recent Gwyneth faux pas, but it is no secret that I love Argentina and all things Argentine. And it turns out I am not alone. MUG -- tops on my list for smart daily reads -- shares my love. Check out their Argentinean Dossier for a review of Argentine hot spots in the city.

And here comes a teaser……be sure to check back into to Casa Naranja later this week for our ultimate gift giving guide.


A noteworthy group of Argentinean artists have work on exhibit at the Consulate General of Argentina, 12 W. 56th [5th/6th] that leads up to an event this week. On Wednesday at the Consulate, 6pm-9:30pm, an evening of art, wine, and a silent auction. Tickets are $20. Auction items will include a trip to Buenos Aires, Catena and other wines, and Proenza Schouler clothing. The artwork has been donated by the artists and all proceeds will go to artist scholarships at ProyectArte, a NYC-based nonprofit that, among other things, helps educate and develop promising teenage artists at its school in Buenos Aires. You can see the auction catalogue here.



Major Latin music producer Gustavo Santaolalla is behind the Bajofondo Tango Club, a group whose sound is a mashup of musical styles, including tango and electronica. They've got two albums out and the sound will just keep growing on you.



Through December 14th, "Landscapes: Urban, Interior, and Natural" at Susan Eley Fine Art, 46 W. 90th (by appointment). There are works from three artists, including Leando Artigala, born in Buenos Aires, who shows his 2003 images of the Perito Moreno glacier in Patagonia.



Fans of suspense films should catch The Aura, directed by Fabián Bielinsky, who died earlier this year at the age of 47. Much of it is set in a Patagonian forest, where an epileptic taxidermist finds himself isolated and confronted by mystery and violence. Bielinsky's masterful technique is to ratchet up tension without increasing the pace. At the IFC

• Azul Bistro, 152 Stanton [Suffolk] 646.602.2004

A fabulous and French winter destination

As told to us by our favorite Dominicana who resides in Milan, Mrs. Arlene Ventura-Valentini:

For all you ladies who have spent one too many restless cold nights in N.Y. wondering about what the French do in the winter....well, ponder no more. I have been asked to quench your thirsts with my neo-European know how and escapades…and well, if you MUST know, they go skiing in Magical Megève. Forget that whole American-French rivalry thing, its ALL about the French Alps over here.

Doing the Mountains, French Style

Yes, they are fierce, they are fabulous, they refuse to speak English, have major attitude and have no qualms about showing you their distaste in tourists but Megève is worth the experience.

Megeve was one of the earliest ski resorts to be created – a French answer to St. Moritz. Tucked neatly at the toes of Mt. Blanc, Megeve is very accessible by plane (Lyon or Geneva) or by car from Italy, Switzerland and all major French cities. It took us about 3 hours from Milan by car and the sights along the way are beautiful, although a bit claustrophobic if you are not into 360° panoramic views of mountains.

Megève is 599km (372 miles) SE of Paris and 72km (45 miles) SE of Geneva.

Set amid pine forests, foothills, and mountain streams, Megève offers history, ambience and altitude that differ from any other French ski resort. Here you will find cozy chalet homes with smoky chimneys, ancient agricultural farms and luxurious 5 star hotels all together in harmony. Better known for its “glamorous” atmosphere, much credited to royalty, elites and celebrities the likes of Porfirio Rubirosa, Frank Sinatra, the Benettons and Baroness de Rothschild who constructed five resort hotels, which include the restaurant La Taverne Du Mont D’Arbois, great for grilled meats and regarded as Megève’s most fashionable address, have made Megève the “It” place in France .

Megève is undisputedly the most complete cosmopolitan ski resort; with more than 290km (190 miles) of downhill runs plus nearly 81km (50 miles) of cross-country trails. It is the home of the world’s largest lift-linked ski areas that includes neighbouring Chamonix, Combloux, Saint-Nicolas-de-Vèroce and St. Gervais, completing the Evasion-Mont Blanc ski area. Today it boasts one of the best ski schools in Europe (not that looking cute in a snowbunny suit requires any lessons) and is home to one of the world’s best spas, Les Fermes de Marie. In summer, Megève offers a number of activities including water sports on Lac de Javen (ok, Im guessing this is the lovely frozen lake I saw), hiking, horseback-riding, mountain-biking, golf and my favourite, horse-drawn carriage rides through its narrow, medieval-style cobbled streets. The driver even gives you a warm fuzzy blanket that soon matches the feeling you get while taking it all in.

My fond memories of skiing in NY involve Hunter Mountain and manmade snow, standing in line for that hotdog and fries while walking in those boots and trying to look like it was actually easy. In Megève, there is no need for all that façade, if you made it there you are fierce enough to just stand around (very a la Victoria Beckham) and look fabulous. Take a walk in the centre and stop in a café for coffee and croissants (these two things are worthy enough to get yourself over here), window shop or just look at the French do their “thing”. But if you have children like I do, you might actually be forced to do something physical with the snow. In our case it was sledding. We were a bit disappointed Megève didn’t offer the same amenities for some serious sledding but we made the best of it and tore those bunny hills up. Half an hour into this sport and having had entertained all with our originality we were ready for some good ol’ French cuisine (think cheese fondues, chocolate crepes and soufflès, warm baguettes, foie gras, fruit jams with butter and anything with melted Raclette cheese on it). Ok, I absolutely love French cuisine and have to honestly say that this was my biggest motivation for going back to Megève this winter. I recommend Le Ferme de Mon Perè ,with three Michelin stars, it is one of the top restaurants in France. With cooking that verges on the satirical, this restaurant put Megève on the gourmet map when it opened in 1999. They have a 20,000 bottle wine cellar, honey, need I say more? My only advice is that you try and meet a cute local that wouldn’t mind translating all those dishes on the menus for you, since they are not big on English here.

So pack your Versace ski-suit, your Gucci snow-boots, a French dictionary and your Diva alterego and book your next winter escape for Megève, where the French do it better!

Shoes! Té Casan! Tell me More...

1. Raised-seam heel, by Manuela Filipovic, $265. 2. Chain-mail heel, by Gaetano Perrone, $725. 3. Grosgrain bow pump, by Gianluca Soldi, $285. 4. Art Deco hells, by Manuela Filipovic, $325. 5.

(Photo: Courtesy of Té Casan) says
It’s bigger than Capitale! If you have not yet heard of Té Casan, and if you like shoes, you soon will: It’s a 5,500-square-foot, chandelier-hung, glass-staircased Soho store filled with nothing but women’s shoes.

But what is this brand?
The shoes are by seven young designers you’ve never heard of—they were plucked from the obscurity of big-name design studios like Alexander McQueen, Versace, Dries van Noten, and Vivienne Westwood by an Israeli mogul named Yaron Kopel, who made his fortune running the Israeli version of Teleflora, as well as Microsoft Israel. It’s a multinational, hyper-ambitious, and somewhat bewildering project. Kopel installed his shoemaker dream team in Barcelona, for no other reason than that the creative director, Asil Attar, likes the city’s aesthetics. Each designer is supposed to come up with one new style every week—putting Té Casan on roughly the same production schedule as H&M. To further strain the production chain, Kopel claims there will be 50 more Té Casans worldwide in the next five years.

Speaking of H&M, how much are these shoes?
Higher than Nine West, but much lower than Manolo. The prices hover in the $200s. (For comparison’s sake, basic black Christian Louboutin pumps are about $500.)

So what’s the draw?
Original design, for one. Plus, all the shoes are limited editions; no more than 74 of each style will be made, which means once they’re sold, there’s no such thing as a reorder.

How is the design?
It runs the gamut from trendy trainers to bridesmaid-able. But first look says they lack the sophistication of, say, Manolo or Louboutin and the on-trend fashion savvy of Prada or Chloé. And while they may be cheaper, they’re still not cheap: $300 is a lot to pay for shoes by someone you’ve never heard of.

Could this possibly work?
The brand’s kooky “Free to Be You and Me” thing is undeniably appealing. And the marketing plan includes making stars of the designers, in a Project Runway-esque move. “If one of the designers is a schizo or suicidal, we’re going to let you know,” says Ron Pompei, the stores’ designer (and the man who gave Anthropologie its scruffy-cool vibe). But at the end of the day, they’re going to have to move a whole lot of stack-heeled boots to make that Soho rent.

Hours: Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Sunday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

"His dancing can simmer, smolder or
erupt volcanically!"

World renowned flamenco dancer JOAQUÍN CORTÉS - hailed as "the very best of his generation" by Spain's El Pais newspaper - returns to New York City to make his Broadway stage debut with his acclaimed solo show, MI SOLEDAD, in a strictly limited engagement at the Palace Theatre.

MI SOLEDAD (My Solitude) is a unique 90-minute fusion of flamenco dance, music and song. Accompanied by a live ten-piece orchestra and a seven-member vocal ensemble combining the musical rhythms of jazz, classical and flamenco, Cortés takes audiences on an intimate and provocative journey through one man's soul.

Already an international phenomenon, JOAQUÍN CORTÉS: MI SOLEDAD has triumphantly played many of the world's capital cities since its Mexico City premiere last year, including sold-out engagements in London, Venice, Milan, Paris, Tokyo, Lisbon, Lima, Madrid, Kiev, Moscow, Barcelona, Caracas and Buenos Aires.
