A brilliant night at the 92nd Street Y with Fern Mallis and Amy Fine Collins, both masters of their many crafts, discussing Amy’s life and her newest book The International’s Best-Dressed List—The Official Guide, and the List itself which came out Saturday. The audience was almost as interesting as the talk!
@madamefaleshill @williamiveylong @alexhitz @thombrowne @thonbrowneny @bettinastake @carolinaherrera and others, all very well dressed I might add!

Captured this in our driveway coming back from town this morning. According to @powerofpositivity .com :
Hawks scan their environment from high above the ground, looking for potential threats and sources of food. If you see hawks showing up in your life frequently, it may be a call to see things from a higher perspective and focus on your observation skills.
Of course if you live in the country you see hawks all the time, but I still get a thrill from watching them and they do somehow seem to speak of a higher, sharper vision, which gives me pause—particularly as we seem to get caught up in the chaos of holidays … .

Acknowledging the extraordinary life of Felix Rohatyn, immigrant, financier, “fixer”, philanthropist, ambassador, advisor, husband of the late, lovely Elizabeth Rohatyn; and stepfather to dear friend @ninaggg, to whom the sympathies of the legions who love her go this day and in the days ahead. Mr Rohatyn’s obituary in @nytimes is a fascinating read summarizing a remarkable era in our history and in New York City’s saga of near-demise in the 1970s. RIP #felixrohatyn Photo @gettyimages via @nytimes.
