ON MY MIND

The master list

SO C I E T Y | FA SHI O N | HO ME | D I NING | ART VOLUME 32, NO. 2

By Bill Macomber There’s a pattern with this year’s Trendsetters I’ve noticed every year we’ve asked our honorees to name people in the Valley who have most inspired them. The 2014 Trendsetters you’ll read about inside this issue are amazing. They are women who have truly given back to the community. Many came here from different places and have found a way to make a contribution in their new home. A few are from Arizona. (This year includes Paradise Valley as a birthplace/hometown – read on and find out which one.) They have worked in a variety of careers. Some are situated so that they don’t have to work and so have more time and energy to dedicate to the causes they care about. From their picks of favorite movies, books and dinner guests, you can see a wide variety of personality types and tastes. We ask Trendsetters each year to list which fundraisers and charities they have supported. Those lists show diversity, too. Some of them favor charities that help women and children. Others support medical causes. The thing I notice in common is a pattern when they answer the question: “Who do you most admire in the Valley’s philanthropic scene?” Year after year the same names show up in the answers to this question. I’m not going to list the ladies who get mentioned here. You can see them for yourself inside. But believe me, I’ve seen years of these names, and the same ones keep showing up. I call it the master list. These are the women who have inspired other women to great things. They’re the reliable ones who stand the test of time. They can be counted on to be there for the community. I know some of our 2014 Trendsetters will end up inspiring future volunteers. I tip my hat to all the 2014 Trendsetters for their service. I tip it twice for anyone who ends up on the master list of inspiring women. All of which leads me to a conclusion about this kind of thing. Hopefully everyone finds something to do in life that takes them out of themselves and into the bigger picture. It’s so critical to a happy life to find this, no matter how small it may seem. It helps other people and it helps us. Often we see the immediate benefit of this kind of action in the life of the person who is being helped. But don’t forget about the thing you may never see: The impact your giving may have on someone watching you. The master list is living proof of this. Others may not say anything, but they are watching and learning from you.

La Dolce Vita People are talking about Celebrity Fight Night and all the splendor and money it brings to our Valley. The sold-out event will be held on April 12 at the J.W. Marriott Desert Ridge. But they are also talking about a little side gig Jimmy Walker and Sean Currie have arranged with Andrea Bocelli next fall in Italy. Apparently the Italian tenor, a huge Muhammad Ali fan, wanted to bring the world-famous event to his native country, and it’s no secret that Mr. Walker and Mr. Currie are better connected than a light bulb. Anyway, a private 767 holding only 80 seats will depart for the Italian coast next September with a whirlwind first-class tour of the country and its amazing heritage. The party will conclude with Mr. Bocelli at the famed Palazzo Vecchio in Florence. The world-famous Romanesque building has not been open to the public in some time and is sure to please the most discriminating of tastes. The guest list, which reads like a who’s who of Phoenix, Beverly Hills and New York, is quickly selling out. You won’t want to miss this one. Stop me if you’ve already heard this. We have 10 new Trendsetters, and they will be presented along with Bethenny Frankel, our guest speaker,

By Bill Dougherty on April 25 at Montelucia Resort. This year’s well-accomplished 10 lovelies are Kimberly Afkhami, Carol Clemmensen, Chrissy Donnelly, Natalie Gaylord, Lisa Handley, Linda Herold, Susie Muzzy, Renee Parsons, Lauri Termansen and Pam Ward. The event, which is sure to be a sellout, will include some of the most prestigious ladies and gentlemen in the Valley. Since the Trends Charitable Fund combines forces with our magazine, the event is sure to blow everything else out of the water while raising a ton of money for local charities. You get the picture. Several years ago Vanity Fair magazine wrote a great article on ladies and gentlemen who used to lunch. At the end of the article it was concluded that the famed lunching of the rich and famous was dead. I disagree. Lately, I’ve been taking clients and socialites alike to Vincent’s Bistro on Camelback. There I’ve spotted the movers and shakers of our community along with some of the most beautiful and hard-working fund raisers in our community. Just the other day, I saw Cionne McCarthy, Lois LeMarr, Niki Robertshaw, Penny Gunning, Trisha Anthony and on and on. The other day I settled into a cozy corner table with famed model and real estate agent Susie Wesley. Corner tables are always best for the perfect vantage. We decided to meet with the equally beautiful Carolyn Jackson of Barrett-Jackson fame, who just happens to look like a Ralph Lauren Continued on page 16

La Dolce Vita – Continued from page 14 model as well. I’ve been told she is doing amazing things at the behemoth auto auction company, adding her own touch of class. I can’t think of a better person to have married Craig Jackson. Just watch them soar! I still owe Nanci Burner lunch once she returns from Palm Beach and I know just the place to take her too. My hat is always off to Vincent Guerithault and his lovely wife, Leevon, who is one of our Trendsetter Ambassadors from the class of 1994. That evening in which Leevon and nine other fine ladies were presented just happened to be one of my first outings at this publication as a reporter. It’s hard to believe that was 20 years ago. But it’s not hard to believe that 20 years later Vincent on Camelback is still one of the finest restaurants in the Valley and one of the best places to have lunch and dinner and be spotted, too. You should have been there! Erin Gogolak and Jim Ballinger must have been quite pleased with the triumphant success of “Hollywood Costume” in conjunction with the pARTy and the Arizona Costume Institute a few nights ago at the famed Phoenix Art Museum. Although I was not there, I’ve been told by my reporters that it was one of the best ever! I know how much work was put into this year’s festivities and I know how much Ron Miller, the savvy and witty development director of the museum, was counting on its success too. Dennita Sewell, one of the museum’s greatest assets, must have been thrilled that Arizona Costume Institute has such a wonderful collection on exhibit as we speak. But what you didn’t know is that the costumes Trends Magazine sponsored had perhaps far more history than people thought. We selected the costumes William Travilla created for the 1967 blockbuster-novelturned-film “Valley of the Dolls.” Although Jaqueline Sussan, the author

TRENDS MAGAZINE

of the 1966 international bestselling book, got up and walked out of the film premiere in total disgust, the movie became the biggest hit of 1967. But what most don’t realize is that after Judy Garland was finally fired from the film and replaced with Oscar winner Susan Hayward, she stole Mr. Travilla’s creations and embarked on a worldwide tour! Sadly it would be the last film for Ms. Garland and one of last for the tragically beautiful Sharon Tate. But costume theft would also serve as Judy Garland’s middle finger to an industry that had pumped her full of drugs and alcohol since she was a teen and stole most of her money. Both actresses would perish tragically two years later. However, I doubt there are few if any Hollywood costumes that have such a florid history. Don’t miss this exhibit. In Cocktail Polo News You Should Know: That someone who was so mean to so many when she once had money has only a liquor bottle left as a friend, and that’s truly karma at its finest … That a philanthropist who wishes to remain nameless just wrote a huge check at a dinner party to a guest whose charity was in danger of closing … That a once very high-profile man who stiffed a lot of people has no plans of ever returning to Phoenix … That someone who once hired a PR agency In Cocktail Polo that News you only should know:as the person to do her bidding has realized you’re as good you truly are … That the social swim wishes no ill will to an in-your-face couple, but just wishes they would move … That the karma police have finally arrested a soft-spoken socialite who just so happens to be a snake in the grass … That a beautiful and much-adored socialite has very quietly been gifting several local charities enormous sums of money, and they don’t even know it. Now you’re all caught up for the next 15 minutes.


TRENDY READING

‘Empty Mansions’ by Bill Dedman and Paul Clark Newell Jr. By Bill Dougherty No one really even knew who Huguett Clark was until just a few years ago. Not seen in public since the mid-1960s, the heiress who was reportedly worth up to $300 million had stayed out of the public eye. An accomplished artist and doll maker, Ms. Clark had spent most of her life since the passing of her entire family in total seclusion in a tawny, sprawling Fifth Avenue apartment in New York. The apartment, like Ms. Clark, remained frozen in another century. However, when Huguett Clark died at well over 100 years old, it was revealed to the world that the daughter of one of the 50 richest men in America, W.A. Clark, a copper baron, railroad builder, art collector and U.S. senator, had her share of secrets, too. “Empty Mansions” explores the world of the very, very rich and privileged Americans from the turn of the 20th century to the present. Huguett Clark remained one of the very few people left living from an era when American self-made wealth dominated the world. Yet as the book probes further into the life of the reclusive and eccentric women, you become even more spellbound. Ms. Clark spent her days painting and preserving the family’s grand mansion in Santa Barbara, Calif., a mansion she had not set foot in since the mid-1950s when her mother was still living. So meticulous was its care that one could walk into the stately manor’s garage and turn the key of a vintage Cadillac and its motor would start right away! No attention to detail was overlooked at the empty home as well as another located on the East Coast. They were kept in first-class condition according to Huguett Clark’s wishes. This fascinating read is a must for anyone interested in American wealth, its players and the greed associated with corrupt employees, medical professionals and their respective institutions. “Empty Mansions” is such an incredible read that it often plays out more like a grand mystery novel that non-fiction.

“I don’t think about art when I’m working. I try to think about life.” – Jean-Michel Basquiat

E Matthew Boland

very adventure begins with preparation, execution and passion. “I always say to potential clients at our first meeting that if each member of the design team does not learn something through the process, whether they be the client, the architect, the builder or the interior designer, then it was not a successful project.” Designing and building a home is truly a journey and you should always travel with people that you know will watch out for you and protect you on your journey. I am very proud to work with so many talented architects, builders and landscape designers; each one brings their own expertise and passion to each project. Interiors are such a personal and intimate facet of a home, they reflect to others how you would like to be viewed, what your interests are and how you live your life. A successful interior is like a successful outfit that makes you feel amazing, but an interior allows you to live your life wrapped in that atmosphere. Exposure is such an extremely important part of design; it allows you to consider all options with an educated eye and a thoughtful mind. When a client is passionately engaged in the process, their fire is my fire and I love to experience all of their ideas. Every idea leads to another.

I am very proud to have an amazing staff, “my team.” We work very hard to bring the best level of service to every step of the process and to deliver a timely result to any request. Thank you Andrea, Sara, Jennifer and Barri for your endless and much appreciated efforts, you are my esteemed colleagues, thank you for your professionalism and dedication to making dreams come true. I believe wholeheartedly in a collaborative creative process and I am so proud to be currently working alongside such amazing local talents as DeBartolo Architects, Candelaria Design, Tennen Studio, Stoffel Design, Truform and Douglas Architects. We also have the honor of having Desert Star Construction, Tennen Construction, Construction Zone, Kitchell Custom Homes, GM Hunt Builders and Benhart Landscaping executing our designs with precision and with the upmost professional expertise. We are currently working on projects in Arizona as well as many out-ofstate projects including Toronto, Canada; Beverly Hills, California; Aspen, Colorado; St. Louis, Missouri; Palm Beach, Florida and Manhattan, New York. Our clients take us all around the world.

Spotlight on the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art SMoCA is presenting something to engage all your senses this spring: “The Five Senses.” This exhibition includes five top artists whose work is presented so you can see it, hear it, feel it and, in some cases, smell it. Janet Cardiff’s audio installation features a 40-voice choral composition from the 16th century. Her “Forty Part Motet” uses 40 audio speakers in a large space, each projecting an individual choral singer. The experience is reportedly quite moving. Ernesto Neto, a Brazilian artist, is represented by “Cai Cai Marrom,” parts of which include turmeric, pepper and clove. The spice-filled artwork is reminiscent of food, markets, fields and flowers.

Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson’s work, “Beauty,” is an example of his experimentations with light and water. Eliasson constructs an installation of sensory contrasts – acute shifts between darkness and light, warm and cool, dry and damp – to amplify the visual experience of standing amid water and a beautiful spectrum of fractured light.

Artist Roelof Louw’s “Pyramid of Oranges” is just that – 6,000 of them. And Spencer Finch’s artwork titled “2 hours, 2 minutes, 2 seconds (Wind at Walden Pond, March 12, 2007)” crafts an intermediate space between nature, technology, physics and art. SMoCA’s Assistant Curator Claire C. Carter describes what is so special about experiencing this art. She was amazed, she says, that “the thoughtful combination of humble materials could inspire me to perceive the world in a fresh way.” This exhibition at SMoCA is the first time these five artworks will be exhibited together. It will remain at SMoCA through May 4. SMoCA is located at 7374 E. Second St., Scottsdale. 480.874.4666 or www.smoca.org.

ARTIST PROFILE

Jeweler Jesse Monongya This Navajo jeweler is doing some of the finest inlay work anywhere. Raised in New Mexico in the famous Navajo rug center of Two Gray Hills, he learned by watching weavers in their pursuit of artistic balance and technical expertise. With his jewelry, he added the gorgeous color combinations that echo across the Southwest. He has worked in simple designs of silver and turquoise, but is also known for intricate inlays of lapis, jade, malachite and diamonds set in gold. He says the patterns of the stars his tribe’s elders talked about when he was a boy came to be used later in his classic bracelets and pendants. The bear, in particular, has played a large part in this artist’s work. It’s a symbol to him of the strength and power of his Dine culture. His intricate bear pieces take so much concentration he must take time between pieces to recover. Jesse now lives in Scottsdale, and he has been active for a long time in advancing the cause of art in the Valley. He was the artist in residence at the Heard Museum in 1986-87, demonstrating the centuries-old art of Navajo jewelry making. He also helped in the placing of contemporary and historic Native American jewelry in the permanent collection of the Heard. His jewelry has been a part of many group and one-man exhibitions. It is represented in corporate and private collections. He sells widely, and is a steady presence at Santa Fe Indian

Market, the annual extravaganza of Native American art held each summer. His work must be seen up close to appreciate it fully. To do that, admirers can contact Jesse through his Web site, jessemonongye.com (Monongye with an “e” is an alternate spelling of his name). He can also be reached by e-mail at monongye@cox.net. Or call 480.991.2598.

FA S H I O N

Norman Norell and the mermaid dress By Dani Bennett Although many of the names that appear in fashion history originate overseas, there is still a wide range of notable fashion designers from the United States. Among these successful American designers is a man named Norman Norell. You might call him one of the early visionaries of American high fashion. Best known for his elegant “mermaid” dresses and perfectly tailored silhouettes, Norell is often considered one of the most influential American fashion designers, and is partially responsible for shaping fashion into what it is today. Born Norman David Levinson, he later combined “Nor” from his first name and the “L” from the first letter of his last name. The Roaring Twenties is arguably the most innovative era in American fashion history, and coincidentally this is the era when Norell began to emerge into the designing industry. After studying briefly at a military school during World War I, Norell made a complete 180 and decided to pursue his nagging penchant for fashion. In 1918, he enrolled in Parsons School of Design in New York. Initially, Norell attempted to fill his artistic void by majoring in illustration, but later decided to transfer to Pratt Institute in Brooklyn to follow his fashion aspirations. Almost immediately after graduating from Pratt he got involved with the behind-the-

scenes of show business. He was hired at Paramount Pictures in New York and worked on costuming for some of the biggest stars at the time. For the next four years, he designed for multiple silent films, then made costumes for some very prominent Broadway shows. It wasn’t until 1928 that Norell really got his big break. Hattie Carnegie, a fashion entrepreneur with a knack for finding young talent, recognized Norell’s potential and

decided to hire him. While working for Carnegie, Norell really began to develop his personal style. His philosophy was that an article of clothing should draw attention to the wearer, not the garment itself. Given the time period, Norell believed that there would never be a better time to start integrating more practical clothes into the industry. The stock market crash encouraged and challenged designers to make more affordable clothing without compromising the quality. For Norell, less is more, so he excelled. Norell specialized in translating the unattainable high-fashion of the French runway into practical, ready-to-wear garments.

Actress Marilyn Monroe 1962


the two men found a way to compromise and the business took off. At this point, Norell had full control over his designs. While crafting beautiful garments, Norell was also crafting the future of clothing. He came up with many timeless looks that would be acceptable to wear today. When comparing his clothing to the styles of modern fashion, it may seem like his clothes are common. During the war years, America was cut off from Paris fashions and

Norell decided to move on to the next chapter of his life after an argument with Carnegie about a dress. He took his fullbody sequined evening gown and looked for work elsewhere.

Norell was active up until the day of his death in October 1970. He was the victim of a stroke on the eve of a retrospective fashion show of all his work. Norell was quintessential to the process of developing American fashion. Recently, his design was worn by Michelle Obama, but imitations and variations of his work are worn by people all over America every day. Although he died fairly young, his work lives on everywhere you look.

Unfortunately he fell short when it came to the business side of things. Luckily, a man named Anthony Traina, with an acute eye for up-and-coming designers, proposed to look after the marketing aspect as long as Norell continued crafting avant-garde garments. Norell insisted on making a name for himself, so he originally refused the offer. Later Norell’s all-American look stood out among designers. Norell finally launched a line of his own called Norman Norell LTD. He made sure every article of clothing was handled with care and ensured quality by inspecting every item after it was made. His line consisted of evening wear and plenty of dayto-day styles. His everyday fashions served to emphasize the wearer, not the article. “Fashion’s function is to enhance the beauty of a woman,” Norell explained. As for his evening looks, he took inspiration from the glamour of his earlier days in Vaudeville. He perfected his full-body sequined gown, nicknamed the “mermaid dress,” which quickly became iconic after being worn by celebrities like Suzy Parker and Marilyn Monroe.

Eddie’s House By Laurie Florence-Manucci My review is of a charming restaurant in Old Town Scottsdale called Eddie’s House. This is an amazing and unique place that truly is like a “house” in every sense of the word. Actually, it is more like a home, and we felt right at home. Eddie Matney is Arizona’s celebrity chef, and he embraces creative, colorful and innovative dining down to the preparation and presentation of the food. He definitely delivers. The place inside is beautiful. I loved the décor, a nice mix of casual and upscale. It also has a nice patio right in the heart of downtown Scottsdale. Inside, you really do feel as if you are hanging out with Eddie in his living room as it is very warm and welcoming. They begin by bringing you bread with blue cheese butter. It is too delicious to pass up! For starters we ordered the charred calamari, which was a nice change from the standard fried calamari that you can get at just about any other restaurant. It was grilled and charred, beautifully served with a spicy heirloom tomato coulis. We also got the Organic Iceberg Chunk Salad with tomato, caramelized onions, blue cheese and bacon. I almost forgot to mention the Sherry Lobster Bisque we ordered. It’s going to be hard to ever have better than that. It was textured and filled with lobster chunks. Now, on to the main courses. Our server, Sarah, was amazing and spent quite a bit of time answering all of our questions and told me about different options I had when trying to decide between two of my favorite dishes, the Seared Diver Scallops or the Chermoula Roasted Chilean Sea Bass. She said instead of getting a regular order of either/or, I could get a half portion of each. That was a great suggestion as now I could have both of my favorite things! The scallops were amazing – plump and perfectly cooked. The Sea Bass melted in your mouth and was served with candied lemon broccoli spears. Absolutely delicious. The other entrée we ordered was the Pan Seared True Atlantic Cod served with tarragon pistou linguini and clams. It was outstanding and very flavorful. For dessert we had the signature crème brulee, which was delicious. Chef Eddie himself came out of the kitchen and socialized several times with the guests. I love a personable chef. Passion is truly experienced here, and he definitely makes an impression. The entire experience was near perfect from start to finish. The food was wonderful, not only for its imagination but also for its presentation. We are already planning a return trip to Eddie’s House for the superior quality, fresh and inventive ingredients, and a comfortable and vibrant atmosphere. Contact Eddie’s House at 480.946.1622. Located at 7042 E. Indian School Road, Scottsdale.

The Pink Pony Revisited By Bill Dougherty Decades ago I used to tease my father and Frank Brophy once we passed through the doors of the Pink Pony in Scottsdale – the oldest restaurant on Scottsdale Road – “Would you like to sit in smoking or chain-smoking this evening?” That was then, this is now. After being shuttered for more than two years, the Scottsdale legend rides once more. Several owners later and a remarkable facelift, nothing this time will disappoint! The entire establishment has been totally reworked. A new dinning patio facing Scottsdale Road gives diners a La Dolce Vita or Via Vinita European flavor, while preserving the Wild West themes that once made the restaurant so famous. Inside, longtime regulars will be quite surprised by the reversal of the decades-old floor plan. It includes a horseshoe bar, two levels of booths and banquettes, as well as a chef’s table to the rear of the main room. Double doors open to an opulent huge private dining room that no one probably knew ever existed for more than five decades. This private room alone will be a huge draw for society kickoffs and corporate dining experiences. A new menu features much of the old, while incorporating new flavors and cutting-edge dishes as well. Appetizers, salads, woodfired pizzas and Old West staples round out the new and beautifully recreated fare.

The Pink Pony was resurrected from the ashes by a group that refers to itself as the Arcadia Titans. All investors are local gentlemen who grew up dining in the now-gone brown Naugahyde booths of the eatery’s former glory. But don’t be disappointed by that. This new venture made sure that plenty of pony memorabilia remains and is artistically incorporated into the refined digs. Just like the new and improved El Chorro Lodge, the Pink Pony showcases a revamped theme of “change is good.” Look for a whole new generation of discriminating diners who choose to avoid chain restaurants. For more information, call the Pink Pony at 480.945.6697.

Lucky Girl got her name for a reason – she is lucky to be alive. The American shorthair was found after someone had tied her up in a plastic bag and abandoned her in an alley. She was rescued just in time and brought to the Arizona Humane Society where veterinarians discovered that she also had a broken hip. Lucky recovered from her leg amputation surgery. Although she is a limb short of what some would call “normal,” she’s still able to pounce on toy mice, climb to the top of any cat condo and jump onto the bed to snuggle. If any cat deserves pampering, it’s Lucky Girl. She gets along great with dogs, other cats and children of all ages. Her adoption fee is $50. For more information call 602.997.7585 and ask for animal ID number A468369.

Shadow Shadow is an athletic purebred Weimaraner who boasts incredible stamina. Given up because her owner was leaving the state, Shadow would be a perfect companion for someone who lives an active lifestyle. The 9-year-old never skips a beat and can retrieve a tennis ball, squeaky toy or Frisbee for as long as you care to throw them. She also loves to swim, hike, jog or speed walk around the neighborhood. Shadow doesn’t mind sharing the couch or plopping down on a cozy dog bed and chewing a bone. This well-mannered canine is house-trained, crate-trained, leashtrained and has a firm grip on all the basic commands. She’s great with other dogs and kids but may chase felines. Her adoption fee is $35. For more information call 602.997.7585 and ask for animal ID number A473083. Visit the Campus for Compassion located at 1521 W. Dobbins Road, Phoenix. www.azhumane.org.
