First item. Is it just me, or is it kind of lame that both Vanity Fair AND Vogue went with his and hers Annie Leibovitz Obama covers for March? Not to take away from how totally stunning Michelle Obama looks on the cover of Vogue, but couldn’t Graydon and Anna have mixed it up a little? Same photographer? Annie Leibovitz? Really?
Speaking of Vanity Fair, my favorite feature each month is the Proust Questionnaire on the back page, in which everyone answers that their greatest extravagance is wasting time. The wicked women over at DeepGlamour have a great glamour-centric version; today’s features a Q&A with….The Foodinista! Thank you, DeepGlamour! So much fun. For those of you not familiar with the blog, a really smart take on fashion, beauty and all things glam.

Yesterday my friend Jill hosted a red carpet arrivals viewing party, for which the dress code was “tiaras and sweats mandatory.” (I dusted off my wedding tiara, but we ended up two tiaras shy so she found a couple of fezzes in her attic.) She put out a fantastic spread of cheeses, including Humboldt Fog, which always reminds me that even though I think I don’t like goat cheese, in fact I do. I love the vegetable ash ribbon running through the middle of Humboldt Fog. Jill had picked out a perfectly ripened piece, which was so tangy and creamy with oozy edges. It was particularly pleasant with the Perrier Jouët Grand Brut (toasty, spicy) served in these totally great Faberge flutes from her mother-in-law.
