Your Turn ...

And a chance to win a copy of Valentino: The Last Emperor ...

What with the holidays and everything, Style Sessions simply can't make it to all the fabulous parties and events going on around town.

So we're looking for a few roving reporters.

Send us a picture of someone you think would be good for the Style Sessions blog and you'll be in the running to win a copy of Valentino, a documentary about the last year or so of the legendary fashion designer's career.

(Of course you can send us a picture of yourself. It's fashion! Fashion loves self-promotion.)

You (or your friend) can wear your favorite dress, your go-to black pants, something new, something old, something trendy, something retro, something formal, something casual, whatever. As long as it's a Look.

Send pictures to, as well as a short description of who the person is, what they're wearing, and anything else you want to include about their sense of style.

Each picture will result in one entry. We'll pick a winner when we get back from skiing in Gstaad for Christmas.

If you're interested in fashion, Valentino is worth watching.


The couture alone — just imagine 100 seamstresses sewing on thousands of sequins by hand — boggles the mind. But the interesting part is the relationship between Valentino and his longtime business partner Giancarlo Giammetti, and the way fashion has gone from haute couture to commodity as fashion houses have been bought by investment groups.

You can watch the trailer here.

Also, here is a picture of a pug. If you see the movie, you will see tons of pugs. And, if you are anything like me, you will pause the movie whenever the pugs come on, make your pug look at the TV, then press play just to see her reaction.
