Bulgari beauty


At the 2008 Rose Ball on Saturday night, as featured here yesterday, DSB wore a beautiful multicoloured gems necklace and earings by Bulgari.

This must be one of her favourite items of jewelery, because she wore it at the 2003 Rose Ball.


You can’t keep a good piece of bling down!



Gowns Guru speaks




for it is he, our Guru (not really)

A welcome observation from Ian, our gowns guru, but not about gowns…

 It’s about the new pictures from Saturday’s Rose Ball…

“Wow! Dame Shirley has lost the weight which is usually a sign she is doing something big with the career!

The big hair of the early 90’s is back!!


Let’s all hope Ian is right.

For he has spoken 🙂

“Kenny ‘Dope’ Gonzalez is one half of the Masters At Work musical production team with Little Louie Vega. Born in 1970, Kenny started his DJ career in 1985 organizing neighborhood block parties in his home of Brooklyn, New York with his then partner, Mike Delgado. Under the Masters At Work moniker, the parties became quite successful and attracted Todd Terry who later borrowed the M.A.W. name for 2 record releases. Terry returned the favor at a later date when he loaned Gonzalez a drum machine which began his interest in producing beats.”

C’est magnifique
