Renaissance Boss

The woman who coined the word “Fergalicious” has inspired me to coin the term “Renaissance Boss.” As someone who is successfully dominating so many fields, Fergie is a true inspiration and powerhouse. She is a singer, songwriter, fashion designer, television host, actress, and now she is expanding upon her...

Kia Pedersen

This Shelter Island cottage, built at the turn of the century, is the weekend getaway and winter retreat for artist Kia Pedersen. The original house was a lugubrious affair of dark weathered shingles. Small rooms crowded the two floors until a renovation turned a three-bedroom house into a one-bedroom hideaway with a...

Bee-stung lips, usually painted a girly, mod pink, pursed into an impish half-grin that sets off mile-high cheekbones. She might wear a costume, and, if so, it will be frilly and festive and...

Berlin on Art

Your chance to dance under the stars at Lincoln Center is over. Beyoncé is sold out at Roseland. You just missed the Asia Society’s stunning exhibition Ai Weiwei: New York Photographs 1983–1993. But do not despair. Hair will be on Broadway until September 10, in case you missed it the first or second time....

Eric Braverman, MD

  Patients of Eric Braverman, MD, should expect to go back to the future at his luxe office on Park Avenue South. The integrated medicine specialist is equal parts ancient healer and high-tech physician. He uses an arsenal of computers to scan and probe deep into patients’ brains before invoking nature’s power to...

  Vivid memories resemble the kind of snapshots that are difficult to recreate. Think of the beach on a slightly overcast day — the waves tumble forward, catching any white glow that breaks through the clouds.
