New York Post – Page Six Girl Talk

NY Post Page Six Mag February 2007Scarlett Johansson and Alicia Keys star as N.J. girls who toil on the Upper East Side in their new film “The Nanny Diaries.” Although the film may seem to be a fun, exaggerated account of the world of New York kiddes caretakers, real-life nannies say the movie is more fact than fiction.

Meanwhile, I would take the kids on thousand dollar shopping sprees at FAO Schwarz.”

In the “Girl Talk” feature, this season, Fashion Editor Serena French, says it’s all about the coquettish look. In the “Sitting Pretty” section, Alex Woo’s sterling silver Narissa cuff adorns a model at Marseille Restaurant.

Real Simple – Metal Shop

Real Simple December 2006By: Sharon Tanenbaum

All that glitters is, in fact, not gold. Here’s how to tell platinum from palladium and get the most out of your jewelry dollars.

Even if you barely know a karat from a carrot, that shouldn’t stop you from acquiring a shiny new bauble (or two). To get what you pay for, however, it helps to know a bit of jewelry jargon. For instance, what’s the difference between 24- and 14-karat gold? And what’s so “sterling” about sterling silver? Industry pros and top jewelry designers answer common questions about precious metals and compare the merits of the most popular types. Now you can be sure that your jewelry purchases are worth their weight in — well, you know.

In the feature story, Alex Woo’s Sienna rings and circle necklace are shown, along with the white gold Narissa earrings as examples of quality jewelry.

New York Post – All That Glitters!

New York Post November 2006By SERENA FRENCH Post Fashion Editor

IT’S a golden moment in jewelry. In happy news, bling (sequins and beading and rhinestones, oh my) has moved off clothing, replaced by classic accessories that carry both investment and sentimental value. Precious is in style – gold, as opposed to silver – both with stones, or shining on its own. No adornment is left out in the cold. Rings and bracelets have gotten bigger – a cocktail ring as big as your first joint and cuffs or bangles up the arm are de rigueur – while necklaces have become smaller, but are now worn in multiples. An earring with a drop, be it chandelier or a duster, is still hanging on as a trend, and even hair is getting dressed up with its very own jewelry box. Shine on.
