A Great Night in Harlem hosted by The Jazz Foundation of America

Quincy Jones celebrated his 80th birthday (March 14 was his actual b'date) with the likes of Macy Gray, Jeffrey Wright and Elvis Costello as they honored the career of legendary trumpeter Clark Terry at a memorial for music maverick Clause Nobs at Apollo Theater for the annual "Great Night in Harlem." The event hosted by the Jazz Foundation is dedicated to saving the homes and lives of elder jazz and blues musicians in crisis.

A Quick Visit to the Sean John Showroom

We visited the ever-evolving brand's midtown showroom last week, and we were delighted to see the diversity of wears. From pops of hot-for-fall mustard color to camo-print sneakers, the line will surely continue to laminate itself as a fashion powerhouse.

Kohl's Fall 2013 Preview

The home and fashion super-store hosted a Fall 2013 preview for its style-based brands, including LC Lauren Conrad, Rock & Republic and, of course, Jennifer Lopez's line, which the diva herself was on site to interview about. This season we were wowed by the use of  interesting prints, like bold camo and leopard.

Ralph Lauren Men's Fragrance Launch

So the name, scent inspiration and bottle design are still "hush, hush" until its pending release. But we can say that editors were not only delighted by its captivating smell, but also by the sweet sports rides that whisked them away to the event launch. Vroom, vroom!
