The Kin hit the Troubador with Josh Kelley and the Pat McGee Band

November 24, 2007/22.55

[Cross-posted] It’s not all the time I hit the clubs. There are musicians who can attest to that—mostly because of deadlines or time frames of when they are going on and the distance I have to drive.    Recently the Kin toured with Josh Kelley and the Pat McGee Band for well over a month […]

A long weekend in te Waka a Maui

/11.32

It was a pleasure bumping in to former Lucire cover girl Amber Peebles (above, posing cheekily while eating salad), newly engaged to TV personality and entrepreneur Brooke Howard-Smith, at Style Christchurch last week.    Also present was Lizzie Gray, Miss New Zealand 2006, and both girls were more than ably looked after by producer extraordinaire Andhy Blake.

Heidi Klum nuts over knockers

November 23, 2007/23.22

Heidi Klum, the German supermodel (I believe we may use that term) stars in a commercial for the telecast of the Victoria’s Secret show next month. The promotion sees Klum joking about her breasts, referring to them as ‘great knockers’, perhaps showing how British colloquialisms have crossed the Pond.    The show, which airs on […]

Glamour comes in sixes

/10.46

When sur?ng the Lucire Facebook group yesterday, I noted the six ladies that showed up in the members’ box were particularly glamorous. And not nobodies: Victoria Bunton of Sequel Events organized the Fashion on Q show last weekend at Peregrine Winery outside Queenstown and is a former model; Mary HD, whom I do not know, is, […]

Stephanie Chaves-Jacobsen: the next actress of note?

/4.22

I’m thinking ahead to 2008, as many folks in my shoes would. And I have had some thought about future celebs and who I wouldn’t mind securing for our pages.    When Lucire editor Laura Ming-Wong chose Bruna Tenorio as one of our faces for 2008 in issue no. 24, I noticed that models and actresses […]

The Tesla Roadster is ready

October 13, 2007/23.29

Here’s Lucire’s Car to be Seen in 2007, in production and available to the public. The Tesla Roadster might not sound throaty and grunty but for those of us who grew up with Knight Rider, I suspect we will not care. And the rich environmentalists and celebs who will buy one certainly won’t. You may […]

Monica’s back, in a new shoot with Florin Radu

/13.17

In the last 10 years, we have broken quite a few stories: Zac Posen had his first in-depth interview with Lucire, we take credit for the first pieces on Christina Perriam and Kathryn Wilson, and over in Romania, Monica Colombeanu (née Gabor), who was famous in her own right, became a cover girl for the […]

Her exhibition, When Philip Met Isabella, a tribute to milliner Philip Treacy and the late Isabella Blow, is on at the New Dowse in Lower Hutt, New Zealand, after dropping by in St Petersburg and Melbourne, and I would seriously […]

When fashion and beauty magazines bore

October 3, 2007/0.27

A designer, who shall remain nameless, recently said that Lucire was the only New Zealand [fashion] magazine she knew of that had any real journalism in it. I was very happy to hear that feedback, and it seems the concern of fashion magazines lacking depth is something shared by others. Stevie Wilson, Lucire’s former US […]
