Universal just announced they are developing a Madonna biopic called, “Blonde Ambition!” The script is by Elyse Hollander which details Madonna’s efforts in the early 1980s in New York City to get her first album released while navigating fame, romance, and the dismissive attitude of the music industry at the time. As we all know, Madonna broke out in 1983 on her first album, “Madonna,” followed by 1984’s blockbuster “Like a Virgin.”

I've been doing a lot of thinking about women in my industry. Perhaps, it has something to do with the recent meetings I've been in, and the fact I was the only woman in the room. Is this something new? Not really. My female peers usually encounter the same kind vibe. Being an entrepreneur has its own challenges, but being a female entrepreneur, a boss, and owner - is a whole other nugget.

Los Angeles has a pretty specific reputation. You either love it or you hate. The City of Angels is not for everybody. However, I will say it is the place to go if you are a doer, dreamer, risk taker, and the type of person looking to challenge themselves. In the world of design, fashion, and architecture, La La Land has been known to be one of the most prominenent places in the country for opportunity and a chance to shine. Below are a few extremely talented female architects who have made their mark in a town that is filled with competition and hurdles. Bravo to them and to any person in the creative world who is in the process of carving out their dreams (especially in Los Angeles!).

Diane von Ferstenberg has been an idol of mine ever since I slipped into my first wrap dress. She arrived in New York with a suitcase full of jersey dresses that she had made at her friend Angelo Ferretti’s factory in Italy. Encouraged by Vogue editor Diana Vreeland, Diane began to make her everlasting imprint on the fashion world and designed the now-iconic wrap dress in 1974.The instant sell-out was an international success, and put DVF’s name on the fashion map. Today, her signature dresses (including her lip print dress!) has been worn by thousands of women and hundreds of celebrities.

They say there is no such thing as a coincidence right? Well, that seemed to be the case when I was sitting at one of my favorite Parisian cafes last summer. While sipping my favorite glass of red wine over a tower of oysters, I ran into a friend that frequently visits the cafe each time I am there. She had briefly told me there was an event in the shopping complex across the street and that she would be attending. I really did not think anything of it and continued to go about my lunch.
