A WALK DOWN MADISON AVENUE IS ALWAYS INSPIRINGWindow shopping on Madison Avenue is always a treat. . .especially with seductive windows like the La Perla store. They make the greatest swimsuits. . .and, of course, lingerie.

CATCHING UP WITH THE BRILLIANT PHOTOGRAPHERTunisia, Turkey, Argentina, Thailand, Portugal, Tahiti, Maui, the Adirondacks…and, oh yes, Apalachicola, Florida, are some of the fabulous locales I was fortunate enough to travel and shoot with the fantastic Stewart Shining for the Swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated. He always made our gorgeous girls more gorgeous and his photographs are timeless and beautiful. We had a lovely lunch at The Lambs Club in mid-town Manhattan while the Columbus Day parade marched down Fifth Avenue. I always learn so much from Stewart and am dazzled by his talent.A perfect place for lunch in mid-town Manhattan is The Lambs Club.The closest way to feel like a starlet from old Hollywood (in mid-town Manhattan) is lunch at The Lambs Club…is that Carole Lombard in that corner booth?
A GREAT DAY ON LONG ISLANDWatch for gorgeous photos that we shot in Greenport, L.I. last week with spectacular newcomer Kim Riekenberg, photographed by Ernesto Gonzalez.A surprising location that we stumbled upon was the charming Silver Sands Motel. It is directly on the beach and the owner makes it one of the most comfortable places to stay on the North Fork.
