Whip-appeal: 2010 Wiesmann Roadster MF5

"The Wiesmann Roadster MF5 takes even experienced sports car enthusiasts into a brand new dimension of driving enjoyment, delivering a top speed of 310 km/h and completing the sprint from standstill to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds. This exclusive open-air experience will only be available to a select few because the spirited power package is only being produced in a limited edition of 55. Equipped with a V10 engine, 507 HP and 520 Nm torque, it's a car that appeals to all the senses. It also literally hugs the road as a result of perfect weight distribution."

"Not only does the Wiesmann MF5 have a lot to boast about under the bonnet, it also has an impressive exterior: the low body, the typical retro-style Wiesmann design and the wide tires communicate exclusive driving enjoyment at first glance - a promise that is also made by the car's purist interior fittings. No superfluous driving actions are necessary and everything that the driver needs to operate the vehicle is within perfect reach." Source:

And now, a word from El Jefe... Vol. 2

Who’s the devil that wears Prada?
I doubt that it was Anna Wintour…

I don’t know her, but after watching her documentary The September Issue last week, she didn’t seem to be quite the monster that she’s made out to be in the movie Devil Wears Prada. One thing that I did notice is how far her word permeates through the veins of the fashion world.
Anna Wintour is the editor in chief of Vogue Magazine USA and when it comes to fashion, she is GOD! Designer big wigs like Oscar de la Renta and Marc Jacobs have their lips securely pressed against her ASS at all times! And these are the same people shelling out millions of dollars in ad money to be in her magazine!
Why? Because she determines whats considered “in” and that very power can make or break brands. Wintour creates trends and celebrities communicate those trends to the masses . She controls the 600 page Fashion Bible … Vogue Magazine.

My question is ….. who has that kind of influence in the world of fine jewelry? Can you point your finger to an individual that can single-handedly legitimize a trend in diamonds? I know I can’t….
Elizabeth Taylor, Liberace and Diddy are all ambassadors and trend setters of diamond jewelry but none of them had the same power of Anna Wintour. My take on this is ….GOOD! Why should one person have that much power? Why should we let a single person determine what's “hot”? DAMN THAT!!!

We should wear what best communicates us as an individual. If I want to wear a black diamond remote control Lamborghini on my neck like Soulja Boy, I’m going to do it!

"The Septmber Issue": Special Screening at LACMA

After a greatly received premiere in New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Arts hosted a special screening of "The September Issue"; a lively documantary who's focus is the editor in chief of American Vogue, Anna Wintour.
Although comparisons to Meryl Streep's character, Miranda Preistly in The Devil Wears Prada seem to illude me after watching the film, you can bet your Lacroix that Ms. Wintour is indeed the HDIC (head diva in charge).

Here's a few more familiar faces:
Lisa Ling (Journalist, Former co-host of "The View")

Doir Joaillerie: Kings and Queens

“As we are temporary, the jewels we wear last through time and centuries” - VOGUE FRANCE

Dior Joaillerie released the morbidly delicious Rois et Reine or "Kings and Queens" collection earlier this year.

Designer Victoire de Castellane, descendant of the France Comtesse de Provence, might have pulled from her royal lineage for inspiration on these intricate pieces. With colorful skulls carved out of precious stones such as jade, obsidian, quartz and jade, they make for an interesting accessory.

It isn't a surprise that Kings and Queens has become an instant hit for Dior, as their abstract pieces are often sought out for their artistic quality. I hear that lovers of the collection have even considered presenting them as engagement rings. Imagine that; "till death do us's a nice reminder".

Still a pretty fab look.

I'd like to think that this is what I'd look like if I could take it all with me. ~vK

Birthstone: September

Known as the "Stone of Saturn", the alluring Sapphire is said to represent wisdom and nobility. In earlier times, it is said that lovers would exchange these gems as gifts in order to assure the faithfulness for their partners. In other words, if you were living foul, your deep blue nuggets would be as dull cobblestones. (Pre-historic polygraph tests?)

The earliest recordings of sapphire mining goes back to around the 7th century. Most quality stones can be found in Sri Lanka, Australia, Thailand, Tanzania and Kashmir.

They come in a wide range of colors such as yellow, black, white, orange, pink, brown and of course blue. Red sapphires are considered rubies and should not be confused although chemically and structurally the two are one and the same.

When heat treated, their color is greatly improved by the reduction of cloudiness caused by inclusions. It's rare to find large specimens of sapphire, however, the largest known stone is the grayish blue "Star of India" which boast 563.35 carats and is housed at the American Museum of Natural History. It was cut specifically to reflect light from its inclusions producing an odd six legged star pattern.

Another very popular sapphire was one worn by Princess Diana. Although she kept an impressive collection of family jewels, she chose an engagement ring with a huge sapphire surrounded by 14 flawless diamonds. A perfect choice for a princess, as these gems were worn through out history by kings and queens.

True diva.
