Amy Winehouse One Year Later In Memory

22 July 2012, 22.43 | Posted in Music, celebrity | 3 comments »


Tomorrow is the one-year anniversary of Amy Winehouse’s death at the age of just 27.  This is one of my favorite videos of her and I’ve been watching it all day today. It’s a live performance featuring Mark Ronson, who backs-up performances by Adele, Daniel Merriweather and finally Winehouse singing “Valerie,” at the Brit Awards in 2008.

The tendency if you’re a Winehouse fan is to skip past the first two performances, but watching the whole video gives insight into the special relationship between Winehouse, Ronson and her fans, which is really fascinating to watch.

If you ever want to experience the living embodiment of chemistry, watch how Ronson, the audience and the orchestra all light up when Winehouse marches on stage at 2:55 and see how Ronson and her connect throughout the performance: her seeking musical direction from him at 3:42, him silently encouraging her along as he mouths the lyrics at 3:56, the way he symbolically shields her and keeps her on track with his guitar and of course the blissful ending when it’s clear they’ve pulled off quite the moment.

Winehouse does that very true artist thing where she just sort of goes to this faraway place when she performs and it seems Ronson knew how to make her feel safe and protected so she could zone out all the more, at least that is on stage. The great ones, after all, possess a certain fragility that is best served by some shepherding though it seems in the end they are destined to walk their paths alone. It’s all very bittersweet and beautiful. Wonderful and a blessing that we are able to witness it at all but sad that we never will again.

Mark Ronson married model Josephine de la Baume this past weekend. She wore a Zac Posen designed dress, he a cheery, red seersucker suit. Love the decolletage on the dress–very apt given her role as the face of Agent Provocateur.

Must have been a day of mixed emotions for Ronson, who less than two months ago in response to Amy Winehouse’s death Tweeted, “She was my musical soulmate,” adding, “This is one of the saddest days of my life.” Hopefully the marriage provides him a bit of a turning point. As SGP has mentioned to me in times of strife…..time is a beautiful thing.

See Ronson’s suit on the next page.

Agent Provocateur ‘Voyeur’ Video

12 January 2011, 15.36 | Posted in advertisement, lingerie | 3 comments »

Supposedly this was initially put out to the world as a voyeur clip of Josephine de la Baume, aka girlfriend of Mark Ronson, hanging out in her hotel room in a bra and panties and high heels. And then Agent Provacateur fessed up and claimed it as its own production. It runs a little long but you could argue that adds to the authenticity….along with the heavy breathing of the guy filming. Found this at Highsnobiety where our partners in crime posted this I am quite sure solely in the interest of helping male readers make educated lingerie gift choices!
