EDITOR’S NOTE

School Ties

guess we must’ve done something good, because my baby girl is now nonchalantly cruising those hallways by herself. I’m fighting back tears, because suddenly I feel like the sand in my life’s hourglass is flowing in a rush. That said, here’s a letter for Sabina and Maxine, in the hopes of imparting some old school knowledge:

Dear loves of my life, I miss you every hour you are in school, but I will always be excited and available for anything you want to talk about. If I am late for picking you up, or do not pack the most appetizing lunch, please forgive me. Here are some pointers that will hopefully guide you through your early scholarly days.

If it’s a full house you’re looking for, then that’s what you get with both our cover models’ families. Firstly, Candace Cameron Bure, her husband Val and their children, can be readily described a model family. All golden-haired, blue-eyed, down-to-earth, it just goes to prove that sometimes blondes do have more fun. In their case, a God-centered kind of merriment—without being corny or preachy. You can see they’re living their faith, through their simple, easy-to-please manner, and the quiet grace and politeness of both the parents and kids. Perhaps one of our most enjoyable shoots to date, we were surprised not only by Candace’s radiance and toned bod, but to see a different, ‘fashion’ side to her brood—and that they can groove to Rihanna and Michael Jackson and look smashing at the same time. Gracing the other cover is Joely Fisher, who is a free and kind spirit. With her wit and charm it is easy to see why she has enjoyed a long career on TV. She captures you with her contagious laugh and sweetness, which she has evidently passed on to her daughters. Apart from her looks and enviable taste in decorating her home, her expansive shoe collection is also displayed in our feature, while she and her family guide us through the season’s best finds. You will also fall in love with her 3 girls who were so cooperative and lovely throughout the day, which makes it hard to imagine that this family has been swimming in old Hollywood circles. If you look closely at TV reality star Jason Mesnick’s photos, you will see how high up he got on his crazy jumps and stunts that his publicist was getting a little nervous during the shoot. At present, he is a single dad hopelessly enamored of his son and girlfriend, and is the kind of guy that makes you wish they made ‘em like this in high school—handsome, fun, loving, with biceps that can carry you off into the sunset like the princess that you are. If only… Speaking of school, we have now reached the inevitable—my daughter, Sabina, has officially started Kindergarten. I never imagined that I would have a little breakdown while my child marches confidently to the classroom. Thankfully, no one around tried to hug or console me, because that kind of behavior only encourages my waterworks to flow full force. I

• Do your homework in advance, and do not be a crammer like your parents. It has not served us any good, and in fact has contributed to very tight knots on our shoulders. • There will be kids who will like you, but some will scare or annoy the hell out of you (and vice versa), but just remember that you cannot please everyone. • Do your best in everything, and remember that you win some and lose some. You can always try again if you fail. • Even if you are a smart, good person, and respect your teacher, the rewards don’t necessarily turn out to becoming the most popular or having straight A’s—the prize is in a form called “karma”—which you will learn throughout your life. • Cover your mouth and nose with your arm or hand (whichever is free) so you won’t spread germs, and hopefully other kids will return the favor. • Stay away from people who are not nice, or may be nice to you but just want something. The sooner you learn this, the earlier you will be able to practice avoiding bad influences. • Being polite is never outdated. Offer your elders a seat or kind word. • You are siblings, so watch each other’s back in school, especially if one of you is less outgoing or popular than the other. • Turn your back on a fight—it’s a waste of time and energy. But if a battle cannot be avoided, fight back or it might haunt you. • An ugly disposition is worse than an unattractive face. Smile and be pleasant. • Do not judge a book by its cover. The quietest kid in class might be your best friend for life. • The Golden Rule: and it’s NOT he who has the gold makes the rules. Don’t expect people to treat you right, if you don’t do the same. • Nobody can love you more than me (to prove it, I willingly gave my body and soul carrying you). If you need to confide in someone, I am the woman for the job because I will never judge, nor post embarrassing photos of you on the Internet. • In line with that, do in photos only what you will not be ashamed to see 15 or 50 years from now. Respect yourself. • We will be measured in love and the kindness we give to people around us, so be forgiving, generous, and gracious to those around you, especially to the less fortunate. I love you both to my very core. God bless always, Mama

kandi lightner The inventor of pettiskirts talks about being on Martha, how she almost shut down her business, and how dakota Fanning helped get it back on track How has Kaiya Eve grown since it started?

Wow! It’s been an amazing journey. When my daughter, Kaiya, was a baby I used to buy vintage petticoats and then cut them up to make her baby pettiskirts and vintage one-of-a-kind dresses, and women would ask, “Where did you get that outfit?” I decided to visit my hometown in Illinois the summer of 2001, when I rented a U-Haul and traveled from town-to-town collecting over 1,000 vintage petticoats! I began making one-of-a-kind vintage pettiskirts upon request. Shortly thereafter, I had to find a sewer to help keep up with my demands and was introduced to the most amazing woman, Tia Phanthip, who is still with me today. I wouldn’t be where I am without her. One day I was at Fred Segal with Kaiya, and Nina Segal stopped and asked me, “Where did you get that outfit?” I told her I made it, was trying to start my own business, and she handed me her card and said, “I’ll take one of everything!” That was essentially my “big break.” It was at Fred Segal in 2003 that Dakota Fanning bought one and wore it to the Teen Choice Awards, and a photo of her appeared in People Magazine. I then enrolled my best friend, Donna, and we hit the pavements and started opening new accounts every day! Couple years later, I was finding it more difficult to locate vintage petticoats so I created a reproduction line of pettiskirts. I had no idea what a worldwide trend it would become! How did you manage starting a clothing line, and being a parent?

Well, I can’t say it’s all been easy, that’s for sure! In the beginning, it was an outlet after my separation with my husband. My divorce was the most devastating experience—I took all that pain and funneled it into my business. I was lucky to be able to work out of my home, so for the most part, Kaiya was always with me. I never had a nanny because I couldn’t afford one, so I just did what I needed to make things work. I believe that when you’re a single mom, you learn to network with other

single moms, so you have support there when you need it. Kaiya is 10 years old today, and I think things might even be a little more difficult now with 2 hours of homework every night! You and Kaiya seem to have a special bond.

Kaiya and I are very close. She was only 2 years old when her dad and I separated. I think because it was just, “me and her against the world” after that, and I loved making her those little vintage pieces when she was a baby, so she was after all, my inspiration. I have a funny story about Kaiya. When she was in second grade, a little girl named Lauren moved from New Jersey. They became best friends—Lauren was the tomboy, and Kaiya was the girly-girl. Kaiya came home from school one day with a bewildered look on her face and said, “Mommy, I need to talk to you and it’s really important.” I said, “Okay…” She then proceeded to say, “Well, it’s just that I’ve been wearing these pettiskirts my whole life and well, I don’t want to be the girly-girl anymore. I want to be the tomboy. But I’ll still wear them every now and then to make you feel good!” I started to laugh. She got mad at me for laughing. And then I just said, “Baby, you’ll see. Some mornings you will wake up and want to be the tomboy, and other days the girly girl, the rock star, or the little hipster. It’s okay—I just want you to be you.” It amazed me though, because whenever Lauren came for a playdate, all she wanted to do was wear Kaiya’s pettiskirts! That’s hilarious! You mentioned that you let Kaiya run around the school and playground wearing pettiskirts...

Ah, yes! We lived in Topanga Canyon (just outside Malibu), and Kaiya went to a preschool where the children ran barefoot and collected tadpoles from the nearby creek. I’d always dress her in these vintage dresses and the pettiskirts I’d made. The teachers said, “Oh

Kandi! You can’t send her to school wearing these pretty little outfits,” and I replied, “Oh Linda, it’s okay. I’ve taught her that if she rips her pettiskirt, to tear it even more, tie it in a knot and keep on running. And if she spills paint on her clothes, to rub it in and make her own design and then keep on painting!” Soon, all the little girls at that preschool were running free in Kaiya Eve pettiskirts! Most fulfilling moment as a designer?

Being invited to appear on the Martha Stewart Show! And truly, just seeing any little girl putting a pettiskirt on for her very first time, especially if they are a little shy, because once they put it on they just light up and start twirling and giggling—and it’s just magical to watch the transformation. I was the first person to name this vintage petticoat reproduction a “pettiskirt” because I wanted little girls to be able to wear them out in the world, and not just for dress up. When I first decided to call them a “pettiskirt,” I Googled the word and it popped up maybe 5 times. Today, you Google it and there are hundreds of pages! Everybody and their grandmas are making pettiskirts, but I can proudly say that Kaiya Eve is the original! I get some pretty nasty emails from women saying, “You didn’t invent the petticoat, they have been around forever!” I’ve never claimed to have invented the petticoat. There’s no doubt that the vintage petticoats were my inspiration, but calling them a “pettiskirt” put them in the world in a whole new fun and funky way! What’s the greatest challenge you’ve ever encountered, and how did you overcome it?

In the beginning it was financially. That’s when Little Miss Molly came on board with her father to invest in my business. She was my little angel, I didn’t even know her. She saw a photo of Dakota Fanning wearing a vintage one-of-a-kind pettiskirt and she sent me an email saying, “Dear Miss Kandi, I would do anything to have a skirt like the one Dakota is wearing.” I told her I wasn’t making those anymore so I sent her a new pettiskirt. She loved it! Soon she created a Kaiya Eve website and attached it to the Dakota Fanning fan site, and little girls from all over the world were wanting one. She lives in Atlanta and would email me from time to time. We kept in touch and once she caught me on a sad day. She was 11 years old at the time and I start pouring out my financial woes on this sweet, little girl, telling her I’m going to have to put my business on hold because I’ve run out of money from my divorce, and then she says that her dad wanted to talk to me about investing in my business! He called and said, “Hi, I’m Molly’s dad. How much money do you think you need to get your product out there?” He didn’t even know me! He wired money into my account the next day! We have also recently brought in another partner to help grow the company to the next level. She is truly an amazing woman, and I feel so very fortunate to have been blessed by her wanting to help as well. We also brought Denise Leslie on board as our Director of Sales, and she has been on a mission to get Kaiya Eve back on track! Do you wear your pettiskirts as well?

Yes! I like to wear them with a little T-shirt and flip flops. In the winter, I’ll wear them with my beat-up boots and a jacket. I feel they’re a part of who I am and who I’ve become. I just wore our red pettiskirt

Did you know Kimora went to the NY showroom recently and picked out a couple of pettiskirts for her girls to wear in the photo shoot introducing her brand new, beautiful baby boy? That’s really a compliment considering she has her own amazing line of clothing for girls! Thank you, Kimora! I’m always honored to know that there’s a little celebrity following. Advice for upcoming designers, and for moms who want to style their little girls?

Follow your heart and dreams. Listen to your intuition (don’t trust everybody in this business!). Have a vision, wisdom, and a real plan. Know your niche, and make sure you have the financial backing necessary. Enroll all the necessary people to help make it a success. Start out slow, learn the ropes, and take it one day at a time. Try to stay in the moment, and always remember why you wanted to start your own business in the first place. And for moms, try really hard to let them develop their own style. When they come out of their room wearing something that you wouldn’t dream of letting them walk out of the house in, just smile and say, “Wow! You look incredible! I love your sense of style!” and then immediately tell your husband to do the same thing (if you have one, that is)! bc

ditteke ederveen

This dutch artist has every reason to design in full color: her artwork is not just showstopping, they are highly functional, too What does the word “Dpoppen” mean? Who inspired the Dpoppen girls who appear in your products?

“Dpoppen” stands for “Ditteke’s dolls.” And “D” is the first letter of my name, and “poppen” means “dolls” in Dutch. Most of the Dpoppen girls are inspired by my friends’ children. How do you manage being a mom (since you also just gave birth), and running Dpoppen?

One day at a time. Since I love my job and being a mom, it does not always seem like work. I’ve always loved kids, animals, art, and using my imagination—so to be able to use all of that is a blessing. My work is all about inspiration, and that always comes at the right time. And for the rest, it’s a question of organization. We know you graduated from UCLA. Why are you now based in Miami?

I have always loved Miami and its energy. I had been to Miami before for modeling and just decided to stay. The beaches have been a wonderful inspiration for me and my line. You are a self-taught artist. How do you encourage selfexpression and the arts at home?

We know you are a model and an artist—how did turning your hobby into a business start?

When I was a kid, I always loved drawing, painting, and going to museums to see the great masters. During my modeling jobs, I started sketching a lot more and writing ideas down during breaks. I got a whole book full of ideas: children’s books, cartoons, paintings, and my own line. One day, a friend of mine took me to a paint store and bought me some paints and a canvas and told me to go for it! Not really knowing what I was doing, I just thought of the things I liked most, which were children and bright happy colors. I felt really connected to my “childlike” persona, which is a great feeling. Later on, I implemented those portraits onto my towels. What’s the greatest challenge you’ve ever encountered in this business?

To find a way to keep up with the recent demand.

When my son is older, we’ll go to museums and art exhibits. I will definitely expose him to as many different art mediums as possible, and then he can decide what he enjoys most.

Is it hard to choose which artworks to use for your towels (that convert into bags), dresses, etc.?

You like to draw children. Is there something that you find particularly challenging about it?

It is a hard decision because all my paintings and designs have a special meaning to me. So I showed it to lots of kids, and they decided for me.

Every painting is a challenge. I never know how it’s going to turn out, but that’s the fun part! Using your imagination to create something special is a great feeling. The portrait slowly comes together as I am painting, and then I get more and more focused on the child’s uniqueness. Painting the right colors together harmoniously is like therapy—it brings about a happy feeling. I

24

like to draw kids especially since there’s a kind of innocence and happiness, which I hope my whimsical paintings bring to life. When the kids see their painting, they usually get happy and have smiles on their faces and that’s the biggest reward of all.

How is your next collection coming along?

It’s all the same wavelength: beach accessories and dresses—all fun, colorful, happy designs. It’s the customers that decide what’s next. They tell me what they would like, and I try my best to make it happen! bc

ALL THE SINGLE PARENTS

Jason Mesnick made noise for being the first single dad searcher on the hit TV show, The Bachelor— and for breaking up with Melissa Rycroft, the girl he proposed to on the hit show, so he can be with runner-up Molly Malaney. Now, everyone’s happy (Jason and Molly are still together, while Melissa has found a new love). Jason’s still making waves—on the worldwide web this time, through an online community for fellow single parents that he recently put up. The handsome dad discusses fatherhood, exes, and his new ‘baby’ called Jason’s Place (in between cannonball jumps and handstands, naturally).

EARLYBIRDS Established after the 10-week premature birth of her son in 2002 (he was 1.276 kgs.), founder Lynda day found it difficult to find clothing that would fit her tiny darling for the first couple of months. Because of that, she created this adorable Australian line which ensures maximum comfort and ease of dressing for preemies and smaller babies. earlybirdsbabywear.com MOOShu TRAINERS After founder and designer debra Bishop gave birth to her daughter and discovered there was a lack of shoes available for wide, thick baby feet, she stumbled upon a shoe that squeaked, which was the only one that her baby could comfortably wear. This inspired her to create Mooshu Trainers in 2005, a stylish footwear line that addresses 3 important needs for children: width, thickness, and flexibility. mooshutrainers.com

M

ost look at Australian actor Russell Crowe as a macho man. Having starred in action films such as “Gladiator,” “L.A. Confidential,” and “American Gangster,” plus the reputation of a bad temper (see ‘flying telephone’)—it is difficult to imagine him being anything but a guy’s guy. We’ll again be seeing him swashbuckling in a remake of “Robin Hood,” with director and pal, Ridley Scott. However, all those controversial perceptions disappear when one is reminded that he is a loving dad to 5-year old Charles and 3-year old Tennyson, his sons with Australian actress and singer Danielle Spencer. Looking at the photo above, the Academy-award winner shows us a softer side, and doesn’t mind looking wacky as Tennyson puts a dog beanie on his head. Are you not entertained?
