“I spent $ 40,000 on shoes and I have a place to live. Literally I am become the old lady who lived in a shoe, as in the fairy tale. “

It is impossible not to think back to this quote from Carrie Bradshaw ringing the bell of the beautiful New York apartment by Candace Bushnell. From his pen came the star of Sex and the City, made famous worldwide by bestseller, television series and movies. Almost fifty-seven years, the writer has bundled her collection of Manolo Blahnik and sold the apartment of crazy parties. But the similarities end there.
“Everyone asks me how much there is of me in the characters that I created, but I only brush: it draws on personal experiences, then you work with the imagination,” says Bushnell a bit ‘annoyed, because the parallel between her and his heroines does not stop at Sex and the City. His latest book, Golden Girl (Piemme), starring PJ Wallis, a divorced writer who can not leave behind her alter ego: the golden girl Monica and the actress who made her famous.
Hard not to make comparisons with reality. “Absolutely no. Unlike P.J. Wallis, I had an easy divorce (in 2012 by Charles Askegard, dancer of the New York City Ballet ten years her junior, ed) and in all my books there are characters who are actresses. It is a type that fascinates me: sit in front of a mirror for hours, surrounded by makeup artists and hairdressers working on your image and change your connotations, I have deep psychological repercussions. All this has always intrigued me. ”
It does not happen that way for most of the women who every day, before facing the day, carefully choosing clothes and makeup? “It is true. We live in a society obsessed by appearances. Everyone would like to be the Monica Golden Girl: beautiful, elegant and happy. I think there’s a Monica in all of us: the women – and not only – we build an artificial image showing the world through social sites or to find a soul mate. But it’s a shell, an empty shell, a game of appearances without substance. In the US, for example, are fixed with big breasts, but it is an aesthetic ideal imposed by men, we must have the courage to reject it and remain themselves. If I thought about plastic surgery? Of course, but personally I do not care to waste my time to please men. ”
Indeed, the Bushnell that opens the door – without a trace of makeup, colored leggings and boots blacks, nervous energy seeping from every pore of the small body – is very different from Candace in designer clothes of glossy magazines. “I do not like labels. You can be at the same time, a city girl and a country girl, all dressed for a gala, sloppy the next day. The important thing is not to worry too much about the external assessment. It is a freedom that I won after reaching fifty. Doubts, insecurities and self-criticism are the lifeblood of every author. I still spend most of the day to re-read what I wrote and then shout: “But how bad is this sentence.” By the time I learned to be a little ‘less hard on myself. I have no children and now, at the threshold of the 57 years I find myself single again, and yet I do not feel alone or incomplete. I came back to live in Connecticut where I took the passion of my youth, the horses. I lead a retired life, work, sports and some dinner with friends. ” In short, the Manolo Blahnik, Mr. Big and holidays Studio 54 thing of the past.
“As a young man, passing in front of this building, where Richard Gere had an apartment, I said to myself:” One day we will live too. ” I did, but this is the apartment where I lived with my husband and now it’s time to change: I just sold. I’m looking for a pied-a-terre in New York for the social occasions. I still like to dress for a party and I love fashion as an art form, but the popular favorite shoes of Carrie Bradshaw (in this case fantasy and reality coincide: the Bushnell owns a hundred, ed) are no longer topical. Even New York City has changed. Do not get me wrong, for those who want to have sex there are opportunities. But people really cool, creative people can no longer afford this city, biodynamic growing vegetables in the gardens of Brooklyn, certainly not sipping Cosmopolitan. ” Candace’s phone continues to report incoming messages. She gets up, walks nervously back and forth on the floor of the house of the Village now empty and exclaims triumphantly: “They have accepted the offer for the ideal pied-a-terre.” And so Candace Bushnell turns the page.

Madonna, the concert and the exhibition. Between tears and desire to fight

After the attacks in Paris, the pop star, albeit with suffering, he does not suspend the tour. Tonight is in Turin (concert) and Bologna (with an exhibition dedicated to her)

Before Bob Dylan and his guards in disguise at the Teatro Manzoni in Bologna, today controls a carpet for the long-awaited concert by Madonna. After the attacks in Paris, “The public security authorities are preparing the necessary measures to protect and ensure the safety of citizens,” says the Mayor of Turin, Piero Fassino, in view of the pop star’s concert tonight in the town of Savoy. On 14 November, the Queen of Pop has interrupted the concert in Stockholm for a six-minute speech on the terrorist attacks confessing the difficult decision to take to the stage: “My whole show is a celebration of life, the fight for the rights, and the will to fight for what we believe in. ” But “the show must go on.” And so the opening of the gates of PalaAlpitour confirmed for tonight (only) at 18. At 20 you begin.
For all Madonna fans that instead will not be able (or want) to participate, in Bologna today inaugurated an exhibition that traces the construction of the pop icon.

The gallery ONO Arte Contemporanea presents “Madonna: The Rise of a Star”, a group exhibition that brings together 60 photographs, of various sizes, Peter Cunningham, George DuBose and Deborah Feingold. Among the most curious anecdotes narrated along the way, the encounter between Cunningham and Maria Veronica Ciccone in 1982. The photographer had not I heard of it, but Warner Bros. publicist Liz Rosenberg, her friend, advises him not to miss the occasion: “It will be the new Marilyn Monroe!” he said. The day of the shooting came a disheveled Madonna without makeup dressed as a punkettona. He acconcia itself and looks in the chamber Photo Cunningham. The rest is history.

Ice-Q, the luxury retreat of James Bond

We went to Sölden to retrace the places where it was filmed “Spectre”, the utime film of the successful series of the agent 007. We got confirmation that Bond attends only the best places …

Ok, it will risk life too soon leaves the house, destreggerà well with great aplomb sophisticated weapons that perhaps not even exist, will always defend even the worst killers with a shrug of the eyebrow. But the most famous secret agent in the world ever attended (and women) the best seats. For the 24th film of the successful series of James Bond director Sam Mendes, with a cast of 500 people, he has chosen the Austrian resort of Sölden to shoot scenes of Spectre. Moreover, the father of 007, the British writer Ian Fleming, appears to have been a great admirer of the Austrian Tyrol.

Ice-Q, the gourmet restaurant at high altitude
Seeing is believing
So we went to Sölden and, despite watching the preview of the film in the original language (local …) before going on site, we found that the most breathtaking scenes of the film were shot on the mountain Gaislachkogl at 3,048 meters high. Right there, where there is the “clinic” in which Daniel Craig, the last character of the agent 007, goes to “recover” Léa Seydoux, (the French actress is also the cover girl of GQ this month) in the film Madleine The Bond girl blonde. Truly the “clinic” is a designer restaurant Alpine connected directly to the cable car of Gaislachkogl, considered one of the most innovative projects and minimal environmental impact of recent times. Ice-Q, the name of the luxury retreat, as well as 900 m² of glass facades that glow in the sunlight and offer stunning views of the Ötztal Alps, focuses on wine and gastronomic experience. The menu offers the best of local products accompanied by the best Alpine Austrian and international wines. And it is a particular wine in one of the protagonists of the refuge: a cuvee of pinot noir created by the union of three varieties from Italy, Austria and Germany and aged in wooden barrels. The name? Pinot 3000, as the altitude of the shelter where it is preciously guarded.
But Sölden, in addition to having the futuristic Ice-Q, has an area of ​​three mountains over 3 thousand meters of altitude, the famous Big 3: Gaislachkogl (3,058 m), Tiefenbachkogl (3,250 m) and Schwarze Schneide (3,340 m), all connected systems with the latest generation. However, if your passion is skiing, (let alone that of James Bond, as in Spectre do not see it even skiing tobogganing), well, there’s always the music: from December 30 starts the famous Electric Mountain Festival . Unless you relish the pit, if you prefer to stay to soak in Längenfeld, 13 km away, you will find the famous spa “Aqua Dome”.
And already, James never misses a beat.
