Rob Lowe For Crest

Actor Rob Lowe joined Crest to launch the Crest Healthier Smiles Project. Kids with poor oral health are 3 times more likely to miss school and that’s not OK. The Crest Healthier Smiles Project launched a nationwide education program with the PTA and teamed up with Feeding America to donate toothpaste to those who need it most.

The event was held at Innovation Loft, 151 W. 30th Street, New York.


Rob Lowe talked about the Crest Healthier Smiles Project, his experience as a dad of two teenage boys, his mom’s experience as a high-school teacher and his upcoming projects.

A Crest representative was on hand to discuss the Crest Healthier Smiles Project and the importance of a good oral care routine and why a healthier smile is more important than you think.

Representatives from National PTA and Feeding America were also in attendance to provide information about their partnerships with Crest.


Simply take a picture of your smile and upload it to Twitter, Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag, #HealthierSmilesProject and for every photo uploaded by October 31st, @Crest will donate 5 tubes of toothpaste to Feeding America.


The Crest Healthier Smiles Project is a nationwide education program about the importance of a good oral care routine for kids and regular visits with dental professionals.

Kids with poor oral health are nearly 3 times more likely to miss school (Source: 2008 North Carolina Child Health Assessment).

More than 51 million school hours are lost each year due to dental related illness (Source: 2000 report from Surgeon General on Oral Health in America).

Kids with toothaches are nearly 4X more likely to have a lower GPA (Source: 2012 Los Angeles public school survey amongst disadvantaged kids compared to kids without toothaches in the past 6 mos.).

Sean Penn was snapped as he arrived to the Late Show With Stephen Colbert yesterday in New York City. We can see he still hates the photographers, as he just refused to pose. But Sean, we still hate you, just wanted to show how old you got.

Zang Takes Us On a Delightful Detour to Giverny

Story & Photo By: Lieba Nesis

Jean Shafiroff With Zang Toi

Zang Toi held his fashion show the other day at Pier 59 with a supposed starting time of 7 PM. Anyone who has participated in fashion week knows that most shows begin at least a half hour late and Zang's was no different.

What does differentiate a Zang event is that most of the attendees are in love with the man behind the label and that was readily apparent in the boisterous room. Zang entitled his collection the "Glorious Giverny Garden" and from the minute it began I was transported to the Paris of old- where croissants and couture were the reigning preoccupations. Giverny is a village in the Upper Normandy region of France and it is known as the place where painter Claude Monet lived and worked from 1883 until his death in 1926.

Zang, 55, tapped into this beauty for his collection which featured glorious music and a Parisian laissez faire that permeated the evening. Toi is a renowned Malaysian designer who has been in business for over 27 years opening his first atelier in 1989 after arriving in the United States 35 years ago with just $300 in his pocket. His warm smile and infectious enthusiasm light up every room he walks into and he has a loyal following amongst the elite of Asia.

There were numerous luminaries including Carol Alt, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Cindy Adams, Jamee Gregory, Jean Shafiroff, and Jill Zarin who all came to pay homage to the delightful Zang. The show began with a black trench dress with kimono sleeves and a beige headscarf with black flats. This combination was reiterated in the next couple of looks in beige, black and ivory accompanied by flip flops and flats. It was not until the twelfth look that we were introduced to some color in the form of a lavender skirt suit which was then followed by a black dress with lavender silk pansies bordering the top of the dress. My favorite looks of Zang are the long dramatic coats with floral embroidery on the inside and the hand encrusted gem stones that adorned the model's neck and sleeves-these ensembles were drop dead gorgeous. Moreover, the lilac and violet combinations were beautifully executed especially when combined with a kimono sleeve hand embroidered monet wisteria. Toi closed the 35-piece collection with a lilac shrug which was encrusted with hand-beaded flowers-a magnificently elegant conclusion to a wonderful springlike evening.

Paul Gerben And Mike Piazza

Luxury lifestyle magazine Haute Living, helmed by Chairman Robert Farmer and executive publishers Kamal Hotchandani and Seth Semilof, hosted a private dinner party in honor of baseball legend Mike Piazza’s induction to the Hall of Fame and the retirement of his Mets jersey. The intimate dinner took place at celebrity favorite MAMO Restaurant in SoHo on Sunday, July 31st, 2016, and was presented by Johnnie Walker Blue Label and JetSmarter. Piazza was gifted a special engraved bottle by Johnnie Walker Blue Label at the dinner, as well as a special painting from artist Paul Gerben.

Notable attendees included: Mike Piazza, Alicia Rickter, Kamal Hotchandani, Violet Camacho, Paul Gerben, Rita Cosby, Tomaczek Bednarek, Alisa Roever, Norisol Ferrari, Unik Ernest and Ronn Torossian.

Mike Piazza And Amanda Monti

Guests were served a selection of MAMO’s Provencal dishes, including starters such as Carpaccio di Salmone (fresh salmon carpaccio), Peperoni dolci Grigliati con Farcia el Tonno (grilled red peppers stuffet with tuna), and off the menu special Pizze Focaccia al Tartufo (parmesan, cantal cheese and truffle pizza). Main dishes included the popular Raviolini at Tartufo (ravioli with black summer truffle), Tagliata di Filetto al Vino Rosso (beef filet with red wine glaze and ratatouille), and Filetto di Orata alla Griglia, Verdure All’Olio for seafood lovers (grilled gilthead seabream, mixed vegetables).

Guests also enjoyed delicious signature cocktails from Johnnie Walker Blue Label, including the “Aberdeen,” a smooth mixture of Johnnie Walker Double Black with honey syrup and grapefruit soda, and the “Of Fathers & Men” cocktail, made with Johnnie Walker Black Label, coffee liqueur, cherry herring and mole bitters.

MAMO restaurant continues to draw celebrities, locals and visitors alike to New York’s bustling SoHo neighborhood. MAMO New York is the transatlantic sister to Cannes film festival go-to restaurant MAMO Le Michelangelo, a two decades old French Riviera staple and favorite among movie stars and socialites alike.

 Kamal Hotchandani With Mike Piazza, Alicia Rickter And Violet Camacho

MAMO, the younger SoHo sibling, is run by Italian restauranteur Mike “Mamo” Mammoliti (son of MAMO Le Michelangelo’s Herve Mammoliti) and maintains the same authentic feel and dedication to Provençal flavors as its Antibes namesake. Just like MAMO Le Michelangelo, MAMO New York attracts a wide array of celebrities, including Rhianna, Magic Johnson, Alexander Wang, Diane Kruger, Samuel L. Jackson, Gigi Hadid, Beyonce and Jay Z.

Heading up the kitchen and the brand new menu is Michelin-Starred Executive Chef Massimo Sola, formerly of Eataly Roma and Ristorante Quattro Mori, and winner of the best pasta at the 2016 Il Primo Manhattan competition. A native of Italy, Sola grew up surrounded by the flavors and cooking style of the Italian/French Provençal cuisine. Drawing on colors and nature as inspiration, Sola is known for his simple yet eye catching dishes.

To complement the flavorful dishes, MAMO also boasts an impressive cocktail menu from which diners can enjoy specialty cocktails such as the MAMO Negroni, the MAMO Spritz and the one-of-a-kind Martini Al Tartufo (truffle martini). In addition to the cocktail program, MAMO also has an extensive wine list of carefully selected French and Italian wines to complement the cuisine.

MAMO offers diners traditional southern Italian/French cuisine in an intimate yet elegant setting. The bi-level restaurant includes a casual lounge on the ground floor and a formal dining room upstairs. Both spaces capture the Riviera’s “sense of home” with original family photos and oversized vintage movie posters. The decor also incorporates classic New York-inspired touches such as exposed brick walls.

MvVO ART and Accessible Art Fair, held a Summer Soiree with new partner, microblogging platform and social networking website Tumblr. Tumblr is an important media partnership, in addition to primary media partner Artnet. Guests enjoyed sumptuous cocktails by Stoli Elit Ultra Luxury Vodka, mixed with refreshing and flowery Belvoir Fruit Farms lemonades, while mingling with the artists of the upcoming Accessible Art Fair inaugural New York edition. Tumblr hosted MvVO ART (US partner) and Accessible Art Fair at their New York Headquarters. The Stoli Elit team brought along its stunning ballerinas to entertain guests. Additionally, Brussels Airlines provided a Sharingbox customized photo booth to offer guests a fun and memorable experience.

MvVO ART and Accessible Art Fair celebrated the addition of Tumblr as their latest partner, providing a major social media platform and press coverage for the November 2016 Accessible Art Fair New York edition. Other partners include Neuhaus chocolates, who offered guests delectable pralines, and BelCham (the Belgian-American Chamber of Commerce in the US).

Brenda Schweickhardt With Jan Planit

A mix of artists, press, sponsors, partners and art buying public attended the event, with notable attendees including: Maria van Vlodrop (Founder of MvVO ART & Co-Founder of the Accessible Art Fair New York Edition), Stephanie Manasseh (Founder of the Accessible Art Fair), Valentine Uhovski (Tumblr Fashion & Arts Director), Marc Calcoen (Belgian Consulate General in New York), Christophe Allard (Christophe Allard, Director North America, Brussels Airlines), Brenda von Schweickhardt, Ara Ohanian, Genevieve Ohanian, Linda Yaccarino and Claudio Madrazo.

An hour into the event, the three event hosts Maria van Vlodrop, Stephanie Manasseh and Valentine Uhovski requested the guests attention to thank them for attending the event and celebrating their new partnership at the upcoming Accessible Arts Fair New York. Valentine Uhovski highlighted the important media channels that Tumblr look forward to expanding together with MvVO ART for the Accessible Art Fair New York Edition. Maria van Vlodrop mentioned the importance of the new partnership to create awareness around the artists participating in the fall art fair, and Stephanie Manasseh elaborated on the Accessible Art Fair and its dedication to creating an accessible platform for emerging artists of quality to showcase their work. All three hosts thanked guest, partners, sponsors and everyone who helped make the event a success.

Accessible Art Fair New York for top emerging and mid-career artists of quality takes place at The National Arts Club in Gramercy Park, New York, this November. Approximately 60 carefully selected artists will exhibit paintings, sculptures and photography encompassing a variety of styles. The prominent jury which handpicked these artists included experts from Sotheby’s, Gagosian Gallery, Christie’s Collectrium and Artnet. The artists selected will be offered the opportunity to show their art during the Accessible Art Fair’s New York edition month-long fair in November 2016 at The National Arts Club, whose mission is to stimulate, foster and promote public interest in the arts – providing artists with a platform to be discovered by the art world, collectors and the general public.

The Accessible Art Fair, which is a concept originating from Brussels by Founder Stephanie Manasseh, breaks with traditional art boundaries. The artists are in direct contact with an art buying public as well as art influencers. Maria van Vlodrop, founder of MvVO ART, US partner of the Brussels Accessible Art Fair, and co-founder of the Accessible Art Fair New York Edition edition, describes the fair as a unique concept that she felt compelled to bring to New York given the wealth of talent looking to exhibit in one of the world’s most prominent art metropolises: “I am proud to partner with Stephanie and bring this new art fair to New York City and support emerging and established artists of quality in such an intimate venue as The National Arts Club in Gramercy Park.” Notable members of The National Arts Club include Martin Scorsese and Uma Thurman and works by famous artists such as Dali and Jeff Koons have been exhibited at the club.

Keeping in line with the Accessible Art Fair guidelines, artists get to keep the majority of their proceeds for work sold at the fair thanks to corporate sponsors committed to supporting the artists. European sponsors of the Accessible Art Fair have included BMW and Montblanc. All sponsorship or other inquiries for the 2016 New York Accessible Art Fair should be addressed to

Vivid Reviews Ghostbusters

Some of the gorgeous dancers at red hot midtown Manhattan gentlemen's club Vivid Cabaret New York on West 37th Street, site of the city's tallest stripper pole, were invited to the opening of the new “Ghostbusters” film. The movie wasn't as entertaining as they'd hoped.

“To be honest, it was kinda lame,” said Vivid Cabaret NYC Girl Francesca. “It was actually a mess!” 

“I love that the movie was set in New York,” cooed Vivid Cabaret NYC Girl Amy. “But other than that, it didn't really thrill me.”

Vivid Cabaret NYC Girl Ava purred, “I was not impressed. Comedy is never good when it seems forced!”

Not every Vivid Cabaret Girl was disappointed. Busty blonde beauty Veronica liked the film. “It was funny. Not as great as I thought it would be, but I enjoyed it!”

Vivid Cabaret NYC has four stages, the first of its kind “VIP Ultra Lounge,” and a Roof Top Cigar Bar and Garden. It is the New York home of the acclaimed Vivid Adult Movie Stars and the sister club to the world famous Rick's Cabaret NYC, which is located just four blocks away.
