Olympic’s 2012 FASHION GOLD

 

For all us fashion folk and Gen Xers: As if the all-awaited rumors of the Spice Girls reunion wasn’t enough- we got all the fashion/supermodel bonus!

It was as if the Gods of Fashion, Gays, And Girl Power all came and united- Who doesn’t love Models at a Party???

First- George Michael sings, “FREEDOM”, the 90’s anthem to EVERYONE- just watch the music video- every supermodel from the 90’s was in it!

As the different English bands were featured, all of a sudden, David Bowie’s “FASHION” song came on while HUGE trucks featuring large photos of some of Britain’s iconic models. Then… when all trucks were entered- the photos dropped to reveal the actual models inside, dripping in gold designs!!! Oh LORD- it was AMAZING! First Naomi, then Kate, Stella… it was brilliant.

A Fashionable Olympic Closing Ceremony

Kate Moss of course being my ALL TIME FAVE EVER looked SO F’ING AMAZING, and with her, Naomi Campbell- who (look below- WORKED that walk!!!) ¬†Lily Donaldson, Stella Tenant, Karen Elson, Jourdan Dunn, and the always handsome David Gandy.

The different designers worn were: Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, Erdem, Burburry, Christopher Kane, and of course our lovely newbie; Victoria Beckham. ūüôā

And now… lets hear it for the Spice Girls!

SPICE GIRLS OLYMPIC CLOSING CEREMONY 2012

This moment was THE one I had been waiting for- to see all 5 girls back up there, and of course, KNEW they would sing “Spice up your life”… Brilliant Fun. Of course they all looked great, but because I’m obsessed with Posh, I had to throw in an extra shot of her…

I MEAN….. GODDDAAAAAAAMN!!! HOTHOTHOT!!

As for the breakdown of who/wore/what:

Posh- Giles Deacon black (duh) dress showing LOTSA LEG!

Ginger- Suzanne Neville red bustier dress (w/ Union Jack of course!)

Baby- Maggie Cooke pink dress with crystal shoulders

Scary- Zuhair Murad sequined bodysuit

Sporty- (unknown sporty jumper)

Needless to say- Best part of the night!!!!

 

AND THEN…….

to finish the evening, my ALL TIME FAVE Victoria’s Secret Model ALESSANDRA AMBROSIO stepped out dancing to honor/participate in the passing of the torch to next games city of RIO!!!!!

OSCAR 2012 FASHION!!!

OSCAR FASHION 2012- HERE IT IS!

Rooney Mara in Givenchy Oscars 2012

Rooney Mara wearing Givenchy. THANK GOD- She’s wearing WHITE!!!!! Finally, something other than BLACK! She says she chose it “just this morning”. Well, it looks like it- it looks wrinkled, and frumpy. ¬†Like her stylist just took it out of the garment bag from the back of the trunk, and put it on the rolling rack. No jewelry, just red lipstick. And those BLUNT BANGS. She looks like a goth teenager. NEXT……….

Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton Oscars 2012

Michelle Williams, in Loius Vuiiton. same hair, same whispy look. There is nothing here that I care about. Boring. I’ve seen it. I’m over it.

Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji Oscars 2012

Octavia’s picking the same designer she’s been wearing to all award shows this past season. True, the rule is “if you know what fits you best, stick with it”, but since it’s Oscars… I just expected MORE. Step out of the comfort zone, you’re up for an Oscar, there are so many designers out there… I’m sure at least ONE of them would have made an amazing special dress for you…. SAFE…..

Stacy Keibler in Marchesa Oscars 2012

So, basically, if George Clooney doesn’t go home with an Oscar, his gf can substitute as the statue? There’s gold, and then there’s replica. The fact that the gold is so matte, makes it boring. Had this been shimmery with sequins, nude cutouts… anything… would have upped the ante here…

Melissa McCarthy in Marina Rinaldi Oscars 2012

This is horrible. Choosing a flesh/skin/rose colored dress on a VERY large figured women is bad bad bad….. She looks big, she looks bloated, nothing here is complimenting anything. Horrible choice. She needs to stick to dark colors for a long time. People are saying that they like it. Listen people: just because she’s big, doesn’t mean you have to fake that she looks good. If she’s skinny, tall, short, black whit- she still looks the worst.

Jessica Chastain in Alexander McQueen Oscars 2012

Jessica looks great, we like her, she’s cute… this dress though- not my favorite. I don’t think it’s “OSCAR”. Yeah, her body looks great in it, but the gold detail ¬†getting larger on the hips just makes her look bigger- in the area NO woman wants to look bigger!!

Viola Davis in Vera Wang Oscars 2012

We all love her, and are rooting her for her amazing Role in “The Help”, however- The Oscars are not for making political statements about race. She decided to wear her hair “au naturale” – ie: not wearing a wig, because she’s trying to tell the world that being African American in Hollywood doesn’t mean you have to “hide who you are”, and not have to “be someone else”. WE GET IT. IT’S 2012. If anyone is judging you for that- THEY are the ignorant ones. White, asian, latina, every other race where extensions, hair pieces, etc…. You can too. I don’t need a public statement to appreciate who you are. Your acting is proof enough- don’t shove it down our throats.

Emma Stone in Jean-Baptiste Grenouille

Emma- why? I love you, and you’re adorable!!! But this dress looks JUST LIKE 2 other dresses we’ve ALREADY SEEN!! It looks Like Nicole Kidman in Balenciaga:

Nicole Kidman in Balenciaga...

Jennifer Lopez in Gucci at the Met

SEE EMMA??? PROVES MY POINT!!! Your Stylist isn’t doing her homework…. Fire her.

Shailene Woodley in Vera Wang Oscars 2012

Shailene Woodley in Vera Wang Oscars 2012

Shailene’s dress is WAY TOO MATURE for her here! She is too young! Have fun, look like a princess- not an old maid!! Valentino is beautiful and classic, but here- looks like aged and dowdy. This is a dress for Helen Mirren, or Meryl Streep….

Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford

As much as we all know Tom Ford is God, I’m still not 100% sure of this. On one hand- Her body is AMAZING- The column part of this dress is a perfect fit. The cape I love…. but as an ENTRANCE piece.. I’m not sure if I like it as an all evening dress. Think of her having to sit down, go to the bathroom, etc…. I just feel like it could be a nuisance- not an accomplice. I’m on the fence here…

Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace

Can she get any more perfect? Just a simple black dress, with high slit- PERFECTION. that smile, that face. All she has to do is wake up, and put on a dress. Amazing. And, as always….. Best Dressed.

Meryl Streep in Lanvin Oscars 2012

Meryl is golden- literally. The first Oscar she won, she was wearing gold, so is she wearing again for good luck? I HOPE SO! She can do no wrong (acting – wise) however, she is dressed a little dated- it looks like they dug through the costume dept of…. can you say “Death Becomes Her?” Also- bra is showing. ūüė¶

Sandra Bullock in Marchesa Oscar 2012

Pretty and demure in front, backless in back…. we know she is not nominated, but as an A- list Oscar winning actress, …step it up a little. This dress is ill- fitting in the bust, and it looks like its worth of SAG awards. Or Emmys. Not OSCAR!

Grammys 2012, RIP Whitney Houston, Foo = Poo

First off, “Thank You” to LL Cool J for giving a great start to the awards, and offering kind words to Whitney Houston- the prayer was heartfelt. To Jennifer Hudson; Great job…I’m sure it was a difficult feat to tackle, and she did Whitney proud.

Best performance of the night goes to ADELE!!  WOO HOO! Her voice is BACK! And she can SING!!! Congrats to her many wins!

But then the Grammys went SH***Y.. WTF is with 2 performances by Chris Brown and 2 performances by Foo Fighters? Chris should just be a backup-dancer/ choreographer, and The Foo Fighters need to disappear. They sounded like garbage, the looked like garbage.

Foo Fighters = trash... or at least the end of civilized music

Also, something to mention: certain commercials.  the CHIPOTLE ad featuring Willie Nelson was AMAZING. Good job to them- their first ever commercial- and with a message (please youtube it everyone!). Chevy and Target also had an uplifting message to the younger generation, featuring singing youth enjoying music, and singing for their dreams.

So, without further ado- lets get to the FASHION!

The BEST of the night:

Rihanna in Armani

This is AMAZING. She said she collaborated with the designer on this dress, and they NAILED it. Her skin is OUT OF CONTROL PERFECTLY GLOWING. A lot of people are not fans of the new ‘do- but I love… you can never go wrong being BLONDE! ūüôā

Taylor Swift in Zuhair Murad

FINALLY, stepping out in something more regal than a princess prom dress. Adding the updo- a nice change from the wavy long hair, or blunt bangs- she is channeling Nicole Kidman in Galliano from the Oscars!

Fergie in Jean Paul Gaultier

She looks AMAZING. The COLOR is “WOW” on her… however, I’m not sure of the peek-a-boo underwear… It’s very fashion forward, but I wish it was nude- creating the illusion of “what’s IN there? However, she looks great. It’s refreshing to see COLOR!

Kate Beckinsale in Zuhair Murad.

Who knows why she’s there (presenting)- she is one of the HOTTEST women in Hollywood, and the world. She got to be a little more sexy, however I would have preferred a cream strappy shoe that matched the dress- elongating her legs- rather than the ¬†closed toe chunky heel that grounds her. EVEN SO- One of the best looks.

 

***********************************************************************

The WORST of the night:

"Sasha" ??

…Whoever the HELL that is. Everything about this is disgusting. Can you say, “Armenian girl from Glendale?” with that hair & makeup???? And the guns? GROSS.

Robyn

AKA UGLY. Nothing about this is worth talking about. Except this image proves even more dislike for her.

Bon Iver... WTF?

This creature BEAT OUT Nicki Minaj for Best New Artist????? REALLY??!? this is like last year’s upset with Esperanza Spaulding… WHO???? If noone has heard of you, then what the hell is going on? A BIG MESSAGE to this crazy looking “artist”: If you’re up for an award- DRESS like it. This belongs at the bottom of a swamp.

 

Cyndi Lauper in Jean Paul Gaultier

At first, I thought this was Christina Aguilera!! I mean, realllly?? We know she’s a “legend”, but this is a VMA outfit… not a Grammy outfit. The hair? Like 10 years ago. And she isn’t a young woman anymore… No need to be showing any leg. This is an Aadams Family Halloween costume.

Lady Gaga

The new Queen of Pop, Mother Monster, quite DOES in fact look like a Monster. This is too much.. ¬†I know, even for her. We expect this craziness from her, but I feel the tone of this years awards garners a need for something a little more subdued. Sometimes it’s about the night, not the person.

Nicki Minaj in Versace

I love Nick, but this is a little odd. And she showed up with an old man dressed up as a pope… hmm. ¬†People were saying it was “so amazing as a fashion moment”, but really- why? Because it has a huge Medusa/Versace logo on it?? ( I LOVE VERSACE, and have since Gianni was alive), but this is just dumb. What’s the point? ¬†It’s not amazing, it’s just A LOT of fabric. ¬†ūüė¶ ps: that performance was THE WORST thing I have seen in a long time. It is NOT what she should be presenting to America… how is she supposed to get any new fans now???

Katy Perry in Elie Saab

I will sum this up with Kelly Osbourne’s quote, “This is the perfect dress to match her blue hair”. BARF. Katy- go AWAY! Dress like a singer, not a Smurf. This is the UGLIEST hair. How does she keep a straight face thinking she looks “good” or “hot”???? YOU LOOK STUPID KATY!!!!

Jessie J in Julien Macdonald

The hair is too severe, the makeup is too much. The dress is too busy. This is another disaster, who let’s these people out their hotel like this? Is she moving into goth culture?

***********************************************************************

The “GUYS” … how it’s done horribly… and RIGHT ON!

rick ross

What IS this? This is THE GRAMMYS, this is an AWARDS SHOW. There is also an honoring to someone in the music business who just passed… WHERE IS THE RESPECT??? PUT ON AN APPROPRIATE OUTFIT!! An UGLY a** shirt, jeans and sneakers??? This ISN’T THE F***ING MALL!!!!!

Bruno Mars

This is an example of a horrible execution of a possibly nice look. The pants are TOO SHORT, and the fit is WAY to boxy- if you go with cropped pant- make it a slim fit! ¬†The jacket is also to boxy- the sleeves are bunching around his elbows… TOO MUCH FABRIC!!

Mario Lopez

Perfect example. Sharp suit, fitted well, and a great look for an awards show (when you’re a guest, and not one of the stars for the night). Hair groomed, shirt is nice being color other than standard white. Overall- this is how to dress guys.

***********************************************************************

COUPLES

Wiz Kahlifa and Amber Rose

Look Kelly (Osbourne) – SHE matched her dress to her hair too!!! And Wiz- I’m all for the jacket, but a white tank??? ¬†This dear readers, is how you do the awards show looking trashy. Or at least for the VMA’s. Again- these artists aren’t getting the fact that the GRAMMYS ¬†are supposed to have CLASS. If you’re invited- DRESS THE PART.

Adam Levine and Anne V

And the Best Couple of the Night/ Best Dressed Couple / How you’re suposed to look arriving to an awards show AWARD goes to…. Look at them, this is PERFECTION! His perfectly fitting Prada suit, with tie AND pocket square? A MAN! Her effortless hair, great shoes, and perfect Supermodel body in that “dress”?? ¬†A WOMAN!! If they keep this up, they are going to be one of THE couples to WATCH!

Toddlers & Tiaras is TRASH TV- TURN IT OFF!

I don’t understand why this shit, yes- SHIT, is still available to watch. This is garbage. Trash. The only people ON the shows are trash. Yes, I just called certain people TRASH. (I have a few haters out there, who always rant about how I think I’m better than everyone else), but I think I win this one. In fact, I know I’m right.

Exhibit A).

June Shannon- White Trash Mom aka Disgusting Pig

Alana Thompson, a "star".. (cough, cough)

Toddlers & Tiaras¬†“star”¬†Alana ‚ÄúHoney Boo Boo Child‚ÄĚ Thompson”. And her disgusting trash mother, June Shannon. This “mother” feeds her 6 yr old “GO-GO JUICE” which is 2 parts Mountain Dew and 1 part Red Bull- which she claims “gives her the energy she needs to keep up with the long hours in pageantry”.

caffeinating your child- like pushing crack

First- sorry to say, but that little girl is far too ugly to be in a BEAUTY pageant. Second- you would think all that sugar and caffeine would keep that little girl’s weight down! Supposedly she “eats healthy the rest of the time”, but looking at that June woman… WOOF… I don’t think so!!!!

June says she made this drink because “pageant crack” (pixie sticks) weren’t working. And in defending her decision to feed her child this “Go-Go Juice”, she said, “‚ÄúThere are far worse things. I could be giving her alcohol.‚ÄĚ

THAT’S HER DEFENSE?!?!?!?! REALLY?!!??! WHERE IS C.P.S?????

(side note- I think this mother should be the one downing this liquid crack- because her body is NOT a healthy example for her daughter)

This “woman” has also taught this poor girl to be as ass-backwards as possible, because she calls herself by the nickname, “Honey boo boo child”, ¬†and says, “a dollar makes me holler.”… I guess that’s the going rate for her mother?

Regardless to say, this TV “show” needs to be taken off the air. I know how reality tv works- find the grossest displays of human behavior, and millions will be glued to the show- because for some reason, America is “fascinated” by it.

Not only is it an embarrassment to our country and society, it sets the wrong example to the rest of ¬†America, by making them think they can do anything stupid for “fame”… and thinking they’re going to achieve it. It takes a lot more than a camera crew coming to your redneck town to achieve fame.

Actually, come to think of it- maybe this show is a good thing: it will help us find ABUSIVE PARENTS and help us put them behind bars. Because that’s what needs to happen to these kind of people.

Disgusting.

Golden Globes Fashion 2012- HITS!! and MISSES..

Last night was all about 4 things: Versace, Reem Acra, Lorraine Schwartz diamonds, and mermaid tails. Here are the Top 5, the Bottom 5, and all the “ehh” in between. Plus a surprise “like” at the end!

Ps: ¬†Even though I did like Lea Michele’s Marchesa dress, (the dress was gorgeous), I am not posting a photo of her. She and her POSING RITUAL are so desperate for attention.

TOP 5 BEST

Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace

The BEST of the night! SO good, we had to post her pic twice!! That FACE!, the way the dress was PERFECTLY FIT to her body, her makeup, her leg, her poise- Perfection. She is ROYALTY.

Elle Macpherson in Zac Posen

Stunning. HER face!, that HAIR, her BODY…….! She is 47?!?!? ¬†Exquisite….

Kate Beckinsale in Roberto Cavalli

Goddess. Perfection. She is one of the most BEAUTIFUL women EVER! Look at this!!!! I can’t WAIT for Underworld Awakening- I’m Obsessed with her!!

Nicole Richie in Julien Macdonald

Her HAIR was AMAZING!!! (love some good extensions!) Smokey eye- she was like a Disco Barbie- (love that too!). This dress was ALL beaded- photo doesn’t do it justice- dress was phenomenal!

Nicole Kidman in Versace

Usually, she is ok- always nice, but never the best… This dress- Definitely- fits, looks, and compliments her AMAZINGLY. Her hair looks wonderful.. Rounds out the Top 5 Best!

Top 5 WORST!!!!

Kelly Osbourne in Zac Posen

Kelly- as a loyal “ranger”, I’m quoting you when u like someone, but not their outfit: “I’m sorry to say, but this has to be my worst this week”. Really?! This is THE WORST of the night!!! WHAT COLOR IS THAT HAIR??!?! Lavender? Grey? She is a “host/expert” on E! Fashion Police, and THIS is what you come up with?!?!?! And this is NOT a mermaid tail- this is URSULA the OCTOPUS WITCH! Horrendous… !!! Your MOM looks younger than you!!!

Sarah Michele Gellar in Monique Lhullier

NO!!!! I LOVE her!!! Since Buffy, Cruel intentions, Scream, I know what you did last summer… WHY??? She hasn’t done anything forever, FINALLY comes back with one of my FAVE new shows, RINGER, and THIS is the “comeback” dress choice??? NO!!! Her face is SO AMAZING!!! She said that her daughter picked it out for her… THIS IS WHY YOU DO NOT LET YOUR CHILDREN CHOOSE YOUR DRESS! ¬†I was so SAD!

Freida Pinto in Prada

Nothing like wearing your drapes to an awards show. Did they not have time to find a REAL dress? and they just sewed together what was lying around the house? Awful.

Michelle Williams in Jason Wu

I was hoping that she kept her wig from “Marilyn”, so we had a change in THAT hair… but oh well. And this dress…. Purple velvet leopard??? when asked what kind of dress it was, she said, ” i don’t know, some sort of velvet.”…. IT’S CALLED “BURNOUT!” This dress, not so much….

Piper Perabo in... ?

Does anyone know who whose dress this is? More importantly, does anyone CARE? This is HORRIBLE. Like a big trash bag… Boring color, boring design, BORING. There are SOOOO many other options out there!!!!!!!

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Charlize Theron in Dior Couture

Almost made top 5, but something was missing- don’t know what it is. No matter what- she’s GORGEOUS. I think the hair choice is a little young, (Young Adult, anyone?) but overall, Beautiful. Just not the “best.”

Jessica Alba in Gucci

A usual non-fave, she looks GREAT! the color is great, love the details,.. but the best part? her SKIN!!! It was GLOWING!!! Whatever she used- I WANT IT!! Good Job Jessica!

Reese Witherspoon in Zac Posen

California girl!!!! Love her hair, love her smile- always ADORABLE!!!!! The dress was a little bland… especially in the bust area: it looked a little DE-flated. But OTHER than that- SO CUTE!!!!! ūüôā I just love her personality, and big Barbie beachy Malibu hair!

Sophia Vergara in Vera Wang

(as Sophia says, “Sophia WONG”) She always looks good- HI, BANGING BODY- but this was a little lack luster… hair was boring and flat, dress was boring color…. I LOVE looking at that body, but now that she’s “somebody”, her stylist could give her a little more, “oomph!”

DISAPPOINTMENTS

Mila Kunis in Dior

She just got signed as a “face” of Dior- ¬†but this face looks like J-Woww… and THIS dress- out of ALL of DIOR’S DRESSES- is the one she chose???? I have 2 words- DROOPY. BOOBIES. As one of Hollywoods most beautiful faces, WHY?? Black Swan was LAST YEAR!!!

Jessica Chastain in Givenchy

She is SKYROCKETING through Hollywood- I LOVED her character in The Help, ¬†but this high neck -blown out hair makes her look like 80’s Dynasty… and NOT young and fresh in Hollywood! This dress DATED her, and made her look old.

Jessica Beil in Dolce & Gabbana

Speaking of “dating” one’s self- this looks like Prairie Home Companion. Or Old Maid. On top of that, this dress made her look like she had 3 tits. Not flattering.

Madonna in Reem Acra

Top half- boobs were so squished in- it was too tight! (Makeup was nice). Bottom half- that’s including the one fingerless glove (we get it already) was too much, to heavy. I know the gothic punk rock look she was going for, but I was less than impressed. ¬†C’mon ¬†Madonna!

Glenn Close in ?

All I have to say, is that top band across her chest looks like the bandaging to flatten out her boobs for her role as a man, she forgot to take it off, so they layered a strip of sequins on it… What IS that???

Rooney Mara in Nina Ricci

We get that she plays a goth girl in “Dragon/Tattoo” movies… that doesn’t mean she needs to keep dressing that way!!! Hasn’t her sister told her acting is ACTING- it’s a role- it’s pretend! Time to get out of character please!

And for EXCEPTIONAL CONSIDERATION….

Tilda Swinton in Haider Ackerman

For some reason- I love this. She is always a little coo-koo… dresses more “fashion”, then “appropriateness”, but This color, and concept, with the hair- I like! I think it’s because as soon as I saw this, I thought of Princess Diana. If she was still living- this would be AMAZING on her.

SOTTO Restaurant: HOSTESS from HELL

No, this is not her after I complained- (funny thought though)… it’s actually a photo on their own website, and Twitter profile. Gross right? (Makes me sure want to go there….)

Last night, we decided to do something nice, try a new place, check out Sotto. First of all, it’s located on Pico, which (if none of you reading live in LA)- it’s a ghetto area. ¬†But hey, if the food’s good, let’s go. Our RSVP was for 6:15- we got there at 6:22- 7 min late. Well, thats not such a bad thing, since tables are never ready, people are always late, etc…. and an rsvp at 6:15? EARLY for a Friday night in the LA dining scene. However- Valet was backed up to drop off. There were 5 cars in front of us, all waiting to get in, and the Valet guys were EXTREMELY disorganized. 10 MIN we waited IN the car for us to drop off our car!!! By the time we get to the hostess stand, it is 6:33.

I tell The Hostess (tall, white, long curly hair) our name and rsvp- she looks at me, and says, “well, glad you made it, we were just about to give your table away”. I responded, “Well, your Valet is backed up about 5 cars, and it took 10 min of us waiting out there.” She said,” ok, well it’ll be a handful of minutes, so why don’t you get a drink at the bar.” J says,”Wait, if you were about to give our table away- then it should be ready, right?” Hostess gives us a seething look. I looked around the dining room: 5 two-tops were ready, 3 four-tops were ready, and about 6 spots of the (12?) at the bar were free. I say to her, “It looks like there are plenty of tables, I’m sure one of them is ready?” She just says, “we’ll get you when one is available”.

Hmm. So we go to the bar, not satisfied with the service or her attitude. We pick up a drink menu, and after a couple min, decide what we want. The 2 bartenders are taking their time making nice drinks, no acknowledgement, or “hi guys”, or “I’ll be right with you”. About 5 min go by before the BARBACK takes our order, seeing as we haven’t even been acknowledged. He asks what we want, and then asks for a credit card. REALLY?? ¬†This isn’t some SBE club, is it? Where drunk punk kids order drinks and run off? I thought this was a reputable place. When you take my card, it better be after my order, and after my meal- NOT BEFORE.

So as he takes the card, a different Hostess comes to tell us our table is ready. We tell her we just ordered drinks. She says, “ok, close your tab with them, and come get me. I’ll show you to your table.” We wait…. and wait…(another 10 min) for our 2 drinks. Yes they are “libations” made my “mixologists”, but clearly- they were taking TOO long- because Hostess #2 comes to us AGAIN and says, “are you ready yet?” We tell her, “we’re STILL waiting for our drinks!” She replies, “really? ok, I’ll be up front whenever you’re ready.” We tell her,” well, so far, 0- for- 2: bad valet service, and bad drink service”. She shrugs and walks away.

WE WERE READY WHEN WE WALKED IN THE DOOR! (AND SO WAS OUR TABLE!) WE DIDN’T NEED TO GO TO THE BAR AND WAIT ANOTHER 15 MIN FOR A DRINK- WE WERE THERE TO EAT!

We get our drinks- 15 min later- NO JOKE. So it is now almost 7. We get shown to our table, and finally, try to enjoy the rest of night. We sit at 1 of the 3 tables I saw empty for the last half hour, between ¬†a nice young couple, and a pair of nice women- ALL who we saw waiting at the bar along side us, and ALL of us got seated at the same time! Since the tables are so close, we all got to talking about coming to this place, etc… ALL OF THEM SAID SAME THING! The Hostess was the most RUDE person! The couple on our right said, “she was so rude, I had to just walk away, I’ve never been talked to like that, I felt like I was going to explode!” The ladies on our left: “Us too! She’s horrible! She gave us such attitude!” The rest of our dinner was fine- food was good, portions were good, service was good- overall: pleasant. Maybe they redeemed themselves in the food? The young couple left, and the women next to us were so friendly, we were talking about life, food, etc… enjoying a new friendship. We passed on dessert, got our checks, and as the 4 of us are finishing our glasses of wine, we see The Hostess walk ¬†over.

She leans down between our tables,” are you going to be ordering anything else tonight?” (I HATE BEING RUSHED). All of us say, “no, we’re fine, thank you.” She says,”Well , then I need to ask for your tables, I have people waiting… “(then, looking at J, says without a pause) “I like your ring…. nice watch too”. ¬†We all look at her in disbelief- Is she REALLY kicking us out, and trying to make up for it by making CHEAP comments on our jewelry? We just spent $160, and our ¬†new friends next to us, the same! J said,” well, great, because it’s the last time you’re ever going to see it.” Hostess stands up and walks away. We all look at each other (the ladies- they both exclaimed, “oh my God, I’ve never been asked to leave!”). We get up, all leaving in silence, I think out of shock. As we pass Valet stand, J says to Hostess,”We won’t be coming back.” Her reply- “Great!”

As we gave the ticket and money to Valet, he said,” just the ticket- you pay the driver.” We ask, “does the driver have change?” Valet says, “yes”. 1o min later, we get our car, and hand driver money. Driver says, ” hold on, I need to get change”.

R U F***ING KIDDING ME?

Another wait while we get change….. finally out of there.¬†The last time we’ll ever see that place. ¬†There are too many GREAT Italian restaurants in LA without attitude and AMAZING service- MOZZA, MADEO, TERRONI’S.

To sum it up, (and to quote a friend I told this story to), “You shouldn’t have an attitude if you are located on PICO!”
