I recently did a little project with the Independent Film Channel where they filmed me out and about using the very awesome Canon 7D camera. I had boat loads of fun shooting at my friend Jennifer Behr’s hair accessory studio in Brooklyn, and at the vintage clothing and accessory rental resource Early Halloween in Manhattan. Click on the arrow to watch the 60 second profile. :)
Here are a few of the things I wore in the spot. Click on the photos for shopping info.
Black velvet Current/Elliott tux pants
Jennifer Behr headwrap. Mine was black leather, but here is the taupe suede version, also nice.
I have been super busy over the last couple of months, so I thought it would be cool to show you a visual diary of what I have been up to. These are photos from my everyday life; work, art, and things that catch my eye. Click on the images if you want to see the whole photo.

My dear friend Rachel Feinstein has an amazing art installation up at the Lever House in NYC. It’s up until April 22, and is a must see. It’s titled “The Snow Queen” and Neal and I tromped through the piles of snow and attended the start-studded opening recently. Inspired by the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale by the same title, Rachel created a gothic extravaganza inside the Lever House, a mid century modern glass building in midtown.
Standing outside on Park Avenue, your view through the floor to ceiling glass walls is a white paneled room, empty but with sculptures in the alcoves. One imagines that only the snow queen has a key for the door.
Another view from outside is a broken-down, gilded carriage, complete with flickering gas lamp. (Side note, Rachel told me that due to stringent NYC fire laws, a gas line had to be run all the way from the building, underground, and up through the carriage).
Once you enter the building you are faced with the other side of the white gothic room, and can really get a good look at the sculptures in the alcoves. Here is my husband, Neal, standing in front of one.
Next you are greeted by a wall of colorful wooden soldiers, folded like paper dolls and hinged with gothic metal. That’s me poking my head through.
Continue on and you spot the character Gerda, “picking” flowers in one of the Lever House flower boxes. Rachel made the model for this out of sculpty, which her children often play with. To make this life size, she originally had the model scanned and computer built out of resin. When the results were not as expected, she had to don a hazmat suit, and build upon the structure herself with hand colored clumps of resinous material. A nasty business which left her with rashy hands, despite wearing gloves.
Here is Rachel explaining how she made Gerda:
To complete this fairy tale is a room of painted mirrors, all done in shades of grey sign paint. It’s a country scene, complete with decaying stone walls, and swaying trees. Here is the room on the night of the opening:
And here is the back corner of the room, sans people.
Here I am with my friend, hair accessory designer, Jennifer Behr. She lent me the super cool black turban I’m sporting.
Our friend Sean Hoess, Neal, and Rachel, looking gorgeous in an ivory L’Wren Scott dress.
Rachel’s stunning (I think) 68 carat aquamarine cocktail ring.
In true Chrissy Styles fashion, I’ve made an outfit inspired not only by Rachel’s look, but by a modern snow queen herself. Oh yeah, I tried to find a ring comparable to Rachel’s, but I didn’t see anything even remotely as stunning. So instead I am featuring a lovely cocktail ring by Roberto Cavalli.
NY Fashion Week has been in full force, and I wanted to take the time to talk about my favorite shows so far. I know Spring 2011 seems far away, but it is exciting to think about what you might want to wear as the first green shoots are reaching for the sun.
First up is Alexander Wang. Spring is my favorite time of year, and I love to see the more organic fabrics and fresh color palettes that he has focused on this time around. Normally he is the king of black, but this season he took a more spiritual, new age approach and sent his girls down the runway in flowy coveralls with criss cross backs and canvas jackets, and a sea of white white white, with some seafoam and terra cotta as well. He also explored some small doodle-like prints which were interesting, and used metallic foil so it looked like duct tape slashed across a dress or pants.
Ah Derek Lam…this season he did a California cool girl, relaxed and confident. He added a touch of 70′s, but not so much as to make the collection look retro. He also used some chambray denim, which seems to be all over the runways for spring. I am crazy for his wooden wedges, and am hoping to snag a pair come springtime, even if I have to beat every other devotee over the head with a shoe box at Barneys.
Marc Jacobs left the 50′s and 60′s behind and went straight for the 70′s for spring 2011. His models were awash in gorgeous plums, oranges, mustards, and pinks. The halter dresses, frizzy hair and giant flowers reminded me of Diane Von Furstenberg, pulling up to Studio 54 looking fabulous and ready to dance the night away. The satin numbers, especially the hot pants, were straight Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver. The colors were beautiful, but I could do without satin shorts or pants for that matter, which is why I am just showing you his dresses. He also paid tribute to YSL (of course), and threw in some Missoni inspired prints as well. All in all, he always makes fashion fun, and it delivered a mash-up of co-existing influences, delicious colors, and some great textures and shapes.
Sexy sand? Yes that seems to be what Donna Karan is into for spring. Desert colors and sexy, flowing silhouettes floated down the runway, making one dream of faraway lands.
Thakoon Panichgul jumped on the refreshing band wagon, and he too sent crisp white down the runway in the form of sporty eyelet. Now sporty and eyelet might not seem to go together, but it worked perfectly and his clothing was fresh, sporty, and sexy. He even made the bits of black he showed light and airy without a bit of drudgery.
Lastly, we have Vena Cava, and I think they did a really great job this season. Their looks were effortless, chic, and I imagined the girl wearing these clothes would be well travelled and fun to sit next to at a dinner party.
Last night I went to a cocktail party/exhibit sponsored by Harper’s Bazaar featuring hot accessory designers. You can’t beat great people watching, mixed with viewing fantastic jewelry, shoes, bags, scarves, and hair accessories. Standouts included Anndra Neen jewelry and Abraxas Rex jewelry, and I am also really excited about Jennifer Behr’s new feather hair accessories for spring. Pieces included peachy feathers dusted with gold, so ethereal and gorgeous!
My favorite hair accessory designer, Jennifer Behr, is having a sale! Her petite spikes headwrap was $142, and is now $36. Grab one while you still can. Or even better, get two or three, and layer them. You can criss cross them, and the spikes help them stay in place.
Also, her encrusted jet and pearl headband was originally $725, and is now an unbelievable $181, which is just crazy seeing how much hand work is involved in her pieces.
I just love Jennifer Behr’s headbands. They can be subtle or striking, and always jazz up a less than standout wardrobe. I wear a head band to pump up my day or evening look and I wear one when I haven’t had the time to get to my hair colorist. Here is a selection from her spring line, you can purchase any of them here:
Here is the French symbolist artist Odilon Redon’s “St. John” painting. Odilon strove to visualize thoughts and emotions through his work. I have always loved the sense of whimsy he achieves, and the way he transports you to another dream-like world.
And here is the outfit inspired by the painting. I love the chunky Valentino cuff:
I am finally getting around to blogging about my lithograph show which was at Norwood last week. It was a fantastic night and so many people came, saw, and complimented me that I was overwhelmed with emotion. It’s one thing to be working away on your own, with your own thoughts, in your own head, and another to be standing in the midst of your work with lots of people earnestly looking at everything and talking about it.
In preparation for the show, I framed everything myself using framesbymail.com. You put in the measurements of the artwork and it figures out the size of the mat and frame that you’ve chosen. Simple right? Well all the pieces arrived separately and it took me an entire day to figure out what went with what and to put it all together. (And to make sure that no dog hair ended up under the plexiglass!)
Here are a few photos from the truly wonderful night. I am inspired and excited to create a whole new set of prints and do this again in six months!
Here are a few shots of how the room looked before the show started:
Here I am getting my neck sniffed by the very talented musician Vanessa Bley:
Here I am with painter John Currin:

If you are curious, my awesome pink satin and spiked head wrap is by Jennifer Behr. You can get one yourself here.
And if you are even more curious, my dress is by Phillip Lim…
I thought it might be nice to share a few of my favorite fashion items. Time tested things that I wear over and over again. I have plenty of pieces that I ball up and relegate to the back of the closet, but these aren’t one of them.
1) James Jeans. I swear they give your butt a lift, no joke.
