Ten Films: 2014
As an avid list-maker and film-lover, it is no wonder that I keep several different lists to keep track films I want to watch and films I have seen. Admittedly, researching developing films, directors, and actors is one of the most exciting prospects for me every year, and this activity alone results in a collection of Film Festival catalogs, endless Google searches, and movie-trailer binges on YouTube.
As the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival takes place in New York City this week, I have once again taken to updating and creating more lists.
These are just ten of the films I am most excited for this year:
To all of you Lula magazine lovers, especially those of you lucky enough to live in the UK… Violet by Leith Clark launched today!
Now adding editor-in-chief to her lengthy resume, Leith Clark launched Violet Book S/S 2014 this morning. Of the name of the magazine, Clark said, “I called it Violet for a lot of reasons… Namely because it’s a strong word, my favorite scent, my favorite Hole song, my goddaughter’s name, and also the name of my mysterious great-aunt who I only met once—she wore a kimono and pink lipstick and had naturally shiny silver hair. I was very little and she made quite an impression on me.” Clark had help conceptualizing the magazine from her fashion-savy friends including Luella Bartley. And just as Leith’s Lula magazine became a staple in the fashion industry, Violet Book will undoubtedly make a similar impression.

Kate Moss for Topshop
Kate Moss first created a line for Topshop back in 2007, and her return as supermodel turned designer has been highly anticipated. Describing the range as more sophisticated than her first, the supermodel has debuted key pieces of the collection in this month’s issue of British Vogue.
