LISA: I was introduced to ACI through the annual Holiday Luncheon many years ago. The Holiday Luncheon has been a fun and festive tradition with friends at the beautiful Phoenix Art Museum.

It is an opportunity to gather during the holidays while enjoying a fashion-related speaker. DONNA: I was first introduced to ACI through the Holiday Luncheon about a decade ago.

TRENDY ETIQUETTE

Gift Giving Nuptial Know How By Heather Wagenhals

Weddings are one of the grandest celebrations of love. And this year, thankfully, they are in person again. Here are some suggestions for you to commemorate the newlyweds’ special day. To give, or not to give. A wedding invitation is a request for your “presence,” and not for your “presents.” Even if you RSVP “no,” you are not obligated to give a present. Nor is it required if you are in the wedding party, as there are usually additional costs associated with participating at that level. No minimums. The prevailing myth is that you must spend the minimum “per plate” reception cost. Your socioeconomic background has little to do with why you are on the guest list. You’re invited because of your

14

connection to one or both individuals. They want you to celebrate their deepening commitment. Feel comfortable giving at whatever level is appropriate for you and your finances, even if that’s simply a personalized card. Registries are suggestions. Giving is about you, the giver. Feel welcome to deviate and commemorate the lovers’ union in a way that reflects your style and budget. When to give. Gifts should ship up to two weeks before the wedding, though it’s acceptable for up to one year afterward. Sooner is better while it’s top of mind.

INTERIOR DESIGN FOR HOLISTIC LIVING

His-and-Her Rooms Make a Comeback – Man Cave & She Shed!? By Barbara Kaplan, www.BarbaraKaplan.com Everything cycles. At the end of the 19th century, husbands and wives had separate bedrooms. Men had libraries or smoking rooms they retired to after dinner, and women had their own drawing rooms. Women also had sewing rooms and hobby rooms, and men later had their garages and workshops. Separating the sexes was common. During the 20th century, men and women joined together in their activities and interests. So, sharing space became comfortable. Now especially, the pendulum is swinging again. Because we are spending more time at home and together, spouses are often looking for separate spaces for self-expression. It is not a means of isolation as much as a way to get in touch with ourselves and how we would like to live and not have to compromise. Not only is it his-and-her sinks; now it’s his and her bathrooms, dressing rooms, bedrooms, project rooms and kitchens for more than one cook. This is happening so that everyone can express their personal needs and wants. You really can have it all – just the way you want it, with a few changes. No more disagreements. You can have what you want and enjoy it in peace. There is much to consider when people have different habits, interests and ways of doing things. Of course, these homes and rooms will cost more, requiring remodeling or take longer to build. They also require more decisions, research and self-exploration. But the rewards may be worth it. Take a moment to give it some thought and answer the following questions. With your tastes today, how would you create your own personal living spaces? Would you change what you have? If so, how? What would you keep the same and what would you do all over again? Consider the activities you enjoy and how you like to appreciate them. Such as are you outgoing or a loner? What is comfortable for you? What is beautiful for you? Next, talk with your partner and see how he or she would answer the same questions. You may be surprised! Through sharing your answers, you can determine where your tastes can be joined and blended. It’s also an opportunity to decide if creating separate spaces could benefit you. Last, is a question of family living. Include everyone living in the home. It’s a matter of how you want to relate and share with one another. These decisions take family discussion and exploration. Here are some things to think about when deciding on the holistic look and feel of your home. If both of you have definite ideas about how you want to live and what you like, it works well to consider the following:

16

HOW YOU WANT TO LIVE? • What activities are most important to you at home? • Are they activities you enjoy doing by yourself or would you rather share the experience? • How important is self-expression to you? • How important is sharing your interests with your significant other? WHAT DÉCOR DO YOU LIKE? • What types of wood do you prefer? (Dark or light color, heavy or light grain?) • Do you like harder surfaces like metal? (Chrome or brass, shiny or brushed?) • Colors are important. What colors do you want to see every day? (Bright or subdued?) • What do you want in the way of textures? (Delicate or heavy?) • Do you like patterns? (Bold or subtle, geometric or floral?) These questions are just a beginning – a way to explore the preferences for you and your partner. For parents this may be an important, even self-esteem-building exercise for your children. No matter what questions you ask or answers you give, make sure they are from your heart’s desire. You can do anything you want in your own home, so don’t miss the opportunity. Remember, rooms have no feelings, YOU DO!

Juvederm Voluma

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is a facial filler made up of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that helps to bind water to cells. Its extensive cross-linking helps to provide an excellent lifting capacity, making it an excellent choice for restoring volume in the cheeks and midface.

WHAT IS JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC? As you age, the cheeks may flatten and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin's surface, which provides lift and contour to the cheek area.

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC provides natural-looking and long-lasting results that last up to 2 years with optimal treatment.

Shark Allies Works to Protect Sharks Worldwide By Stefanie Brendl Why would anyone care about sharks? That is a question many people ask when they find out about the work of Shark Allies, a non-profit based in Los Angeles. The answer is simple – because they are important for the health of our oceans. And all life, including ours, depends on healthy, functioning ocean systems. If you care about food security, biodiversity, and the survival of coral reefs and fish stocks then you must care about sharks. Research tells us that 70-100 million sharks are taken every year, globally. The number may be even higher considering the magnitude of underreporting, unregulated and illegal fishing. Sharks evolved to be predators and are late to mature and reproduce slowly, with small numbers of offspring. Even though they are fish, their life history looks a lot more like that of mammals. It is easier to understand when comparing sharks to predators on land. Wolves and tigers reproduce differently than prey animals such as rabbits and deer. We could never rely on commercially hunting top predators on land and that is no different in the ocean. That is the reason why sharks are being decimated at a frightening rate. The past 40 years have done so much damage that many shark species are now considered endangered or highly threatened. Some of them have been reduced by 80 to 90%. The reason Shark Allies exists is because sharks are the underdog of conservation causes. While they are a critical component of our ocean eco systems, they are still largely misunderstood and feared by many. There are only a handful of groups around the world that are dedicated to sharks and

38


sharks need a committed team of champions that will fight for them. It is a lot easier to fundraise for pets and cute animals than it is for an apex predator. This is a major reason why much of the work falls to smaller grassroots organizations such as Shark Allies. The work of the organization is focused on campaigns that reduce the worldwide overfishing and senseless slaughter of sharks as they are being taken to meet the demand for products such as shark fin soup, ­cosmetics, and meat. The goal is to raise awareness of the issues within the public and increase the community of allies to match and overcome the influence of the powerful fishing lobby, change commercial industries, and motivate reluctant governments. If you are interested to find out more about campaigns and projects, visit the website www.sharkallies.org and @SharkAllies on social platforms. Donations to Shark Allies can easily be given via the website. As a grassroots organization, they depend on donations, grants, and the help from the public.

DESIGN AND STYLE

New York, New York By Christopher Coffin

New York’s Upper East Side landmark the Hotel Pierre rises high over Central Park. It has been a quintessential monument to New York City grandeur since the day it opened in 1930. The Pierre became a residential hotel when, in 1959, then owner J. Paul Getty sold 75 apartments as co-op luxurious hotel residences chock full of amenities. Among the first permanent residents was Elizabeth Taylor and over the years it has been a home for a variety of “who’s who” in both the silver screen and design world including Tory Burch and Yves Saint-Laurent. As a cornerstone of Manhattan glamor life, it has hosted guests like Audrey Hepburn and Barbra Streisand and it is a popular setting for movies. I was honored to have been given the opportunity to design one of its amazing apartments for my clients who wanted a permanent East Coast pied de terre. Because it had not been remodeled since the 50’s, you can imagine how wonderful it was to go on shopping trips to NYC showrooms for furnishings and fabrics and various antique stores for accessories. Our outings to art galleries resulted in finding the perfect piece for over the fireplace – an original Marc Chagall.

42


Because the hotel describes its own style as French Classical combined with New York chic, I also used that esthetic for my own inspiration. The entryway brings the immediate feeling of opulence and sophistication with a stunning chinoiserie style secretary and dark green marble flooring. It is a small one-bedroom apartment but in­cludes charming spaces, like a dressing room and a butler’s pantry. The living room windows have breathtaking views straight down 5th avenue and a full on view of The Plaza Hotel. To not compete with that, I kept the color scheme on the neutral side with pops of soft green. There is toile fabric on the chairs, linen velvet upholstery for the sofa and the faux bamboo benches are covered in Fortuny tiger velvet. It has a custommade coffee table and vintage multicolored Murano blown glass pieces. We transformed a nook in the butler’s panty that housed a built-in ironing board into a special area with glass shelving to hold a collection of French opaline glass. The final result speaks for itself. The Pierre hotel apartment is now lovely, functional and well-worthy of being tucked inside such an iconic historic landmark.

CONGRATULATIONS SALLY! WELL DESERVED. BILL POPE


To my darling bride, this year has been a tremendous milestone in our lives. From becoming a best-selling author and now named a 2021 Trendsetter, you set the bar for what we should all aspire to – excellence, munificence and grace – trends which will never be out of style. Cheers to many more years of “trendsetting”.

With all my love, Ricardo


FABULOUS SOCIETY HOSTESS

The Most Fabulous Society Hostess and Greatest Rothschild of Them All By Spoiled Serena When you hear the name Rothschild, two things come to mind for most people. Those two things are extreme wealth and very outlandish conspiracy theories. However, this article will focus on the most memorable and fabulous Rothschild of them all, Baroness MarieHélène de Rothschild. She was part of the French branch of the Rothschild dynasty, who used de in front of their last name to differentiate themselves from the various other Rothschild family members in England, Germany and the United Kingdom. Marie-Hélène’s reign over Parisian society lasted from the 1950s-early 1970s. Baroness Marie-Hélène de Rothschild is born as Baroness MarieHélène Naila Stephanie Josina van Zuylen van Nyevelt van de Haar on November 17, 1927, in New York City. Her father is Baron Egmont Van Zuylen van Nyevelt, who is a Dutch aristocrat and a diplomat, and her mother is Marguerite Marie Namétalla, who is an Egyptian born Syrian immigrant. Her father also owns their family’s ancestral home, the De Haar Castle in Utrecht, Netherlands. Marie-Hélène goes on to be educated at Marymount College in Upstate New York and then sets off to Paris.

As soon as she arrives, she becomes involved with a French aristocrat and horse breeder named Count François de Nicolay. They wed in October of 1950. The union produces one child, a son named Phillippe de Nicolay in 1955. However, by 1956 their marriage is over and they divorce; as Marie-Hélène begins seeing Baron Guy de Rothchild, who is a banker and head of the French branch of the Rothchilds. They go on to wed in a small civil wedding in New York City in February of 1957. Marie-Hélène also happens to be a blood Rothchild herself through her paternal grandmother, Hélène de Rothschild van Zuylen who is disinherited from the Rothschild fortune for marrying MarieHélène’s Catholic grandfather, when the Rothschilds are famously Jewish. Marie-Hélène and Guy are third cousins once removed as they both descended from the founder of the French branch, James Mayer de Rothschild. This union also produces a son named


Édouard Étienne Alphonse de Rothschild in November of 1957. The marriage is quite controversial and not for the quasi-incest, as incest is the historical Rothschild way to protect their fortune from getting too widespread. It usually begins with first cousins, so Marie-Hélène and Guy are not scandalized for that; it is for religious reasons. As this is the first time a head of a Rothschild branch marries a non-Jewish person, as Marie-Hélène is a Catholic, Guy is forced to resign from being president of the Jewish community in France. By 1959, Marie-Hélène and Guy begin reno­vating a Rothschild family castle outside of Paris named Château de Ferrières. Moving into Château de Ferrières takes the Roth­schild’s socially to the next level. While here, they throw legendary salons and parties throughout the 1960s-early 1970s. Their guest lists include royalty and aristocrats like the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and French Countess Jacqueline de Ribes; as well as artists and designers like Audrey Hepburn, Andy Warhol and Yves St. Laurent. During the late 1960s-early 1970s, Marie-Hélène is invited to all the grandest balls and parties in Paris like the iconic, but in today’s world highly controversial, Le Bal Oriental; thrown by her good friend and fellow French aristocrat Baron Alexis de Redé in December of 1969. The party is held at Alexis’ Parsian townhouse, the Hôtel Lambert; and the guest list is filled with aristocrats, reigning royals, exiled royals, artists, musicians, actors, etc. The courtyard features giant elephants made completely of papier-mâché. The party lasts from 10 P.M. until 5 A.M. the next day. Marie-Hélène comes dressed to Le Bal as a Thai Siamese dancer. However, Marie-Hélène’s personal hostess peak begins in 1971. When she throws the Proust Ball at the Château de Ferrières to celebrate what would have been the 100th birthday of French writer, Marcel Proust. The ball is called her greatest social triumph. Some of the guests at said party are Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Audrey Hepburn and Princess Grace of Monaco. The guests are instructed to dress in Proust’s time period of the late 19th century.

FABULOUS SOCIETY HOSTESS – CONTINUED The party of all parties that Marie-Hélène throws, and that is still talked about almost five decades later, is one that is plagued by many conspiracies: the Surrealist Ball held at Château de Ferrières in December of 1972. The party theme is based on the Surrealist art movement, and is probably an homage to her good friend, Dalí. Marie-Hélène’s costume consists of a stag’s head that is “crying” real diamonds. One guest wears a gramophone on her head, another an apple in front of her face and Audrey Hepburn puts her head in a bird cage. The invitations are an ode to surrealism; to read it correctly one has to hold it up to a mirror. The guest list for this party consists of the exiled Italian princess, Princess Maria Gabriella of Savy, actress Brigitte Bardot, supermodel Marisa Berenson, artist Salvador Dalí, and various European aristocrats. Marie-Hélène’s last memorable fête is the Battle of Versailles; think of what the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is; but with actual clothing, couturiers, and a cause. The cause at hand for the fashion show gala is to help restore Versailles and fix its various problems. MarieHélène helps organize and hosts the event at the Palace of Versailles. The idea is a little competition between the American and French courtiers. The fashion houses represented are the likes of Dior, Yves St. Laurent, Halston, Oscar de la Renta, Stephen Burrows, etc. MarieHélène’s lime green gown decorated with ostrich feathers has been designed by Yves St. Laurent, who is in her inner circle and a fixture at her well-known salons. The guests include Princess Grace of Monaco, Gloria Guinness, Christina Onassis, Countess Jacqueline de Ribes and Andy Warhol.

The fashion show is revolutionary, as there are plenty of black models and a black couturier. Stephen Burrows is able to showcase his designs, and it marks the start of racial diversity in fashion. For entertainment, the guests gather in the Royal Opera of Versailles and listen to the music of Josephine Baker and watch the ballet dancing of Rudolf Nureyev. After the early 1970s, Marie-Hélène’s reign over Paris comes to an end. She is still a glamorous French socialite and society figure going to dinner parties, fashion shows and galas. Her salons and parties are just not the same anymore. Not to mention that by 1975, she and her husband Guy donate their iconic home, the Château de Ferrières, to the University of Paris. They then relocate to the Hôtel Lambert in Paris and share the townhouse with their good friend Baron Alexis de Redé. From the 1980s-1990s Marie-Hélène and Guy bounce between Paris and the Upper East Side in New York City. Guy is reportedly upset that France, under the Mitterrand presidency, has nationalized Banque Rothschild. At this time, Marie-Hélène faces various health issues from severe arthritis to cancer. She dies on March 1, 1996, at her French country home in Touques, France. Her funeral is fit for a former reigning queen of Parisian society. The mourners include the likes of Gianni Agnelli, Yves St. Laurent, former first ladies of France, politicians, etc. Marie-Hélène de Rothschild can easily be named as one of the most fabulous and memorable society hostesses in history.

ATLAS BISTRO

The Valley’s Best Kept Secret By Nicholas D. Butler One of the best restaurants in the Valley is tucked away in an unsuspecting strip mall. Entering its 20th year, Atlas Bistro is an intimate BYOB dining room adjoined to a boutique bottle shop in south Scottsdale. Guests are encouraged to bring their own wine for the cost of a modest corkage fee or spend some time with their zealously knowledgeable staff for tailored recommendations to pair with the restaurant’s seasonal five course tasting menu. Currently, the Late Summer menu at Atlas welcomes diners with Barbados-born Chef Jabari Corbin’s version of a Bacalao fritter bursting with Caribbean spices. The first course features black bass from San Diego-based fishery Chula Seafood in a Mexican agua chile featuring tomatillo and serrano peppers. The second course highlights Chef Corbin’s versatility as a baker: a warm tart with black truffle, goat cheese, and Vidalia onion as well as foraged lobster mushrooms from Flagstaff decadently shaved tableside. The third course showcases earthy hazelnut-finished pork tenderloin from Oregon with purple sweet potato and pineapple relish. The evening’s entrée is an elegant portion of Linz prime New York strip with consommé, rosemary oil, heirloom carrots, and a warm summer salad. Finally, the Crepes Suzette resting in a navel orange and Grand Marnier broth finished with kumquats and Marcona almonds concludes the meal with a sweet note on the palate.

The character of owner Todd Sawyer’s unpretentious space is limited to approximately 30 guests per evening seated at traditional bistro tables with white linens, butcher block paper, and polished glasses reminiscent of a neighborhood haunt for Parisian diners looking for the perfect place to open a few bottles and converse with friends without feeling the pressure of turning tables. Within moments of arrival, Sawyer strikes up a disarming conversation with guests as he


masterfully manages bottle service. Meanwhile, his staff – often only a single assistant – swiftly initiate the parade of courses that follow. With few questions for guests to answer, such as whether to add the supplemental Hudson Valley foie gras course or what temperature one prefers their steak, there’s rarely a moment of intrusion during the meal; aside from the detailed descriptions of courses as they’re presented. There are several reasons Atlas Bistro is celebrating its 20th year. Foremost, Sawyer’s supervision of the quality of the cuisine’s ingredients as well as the progressively evolving format of the menu embody the dedication of a labor of love. After closing for several months during the pandemic, reopening with a skeleton crew wearing masks for several months, and continuing to navigate the evershifting landscape of the hospitality industry; Sawyer’s restaurant is a shining beacon of hope for small independently owned and operated businesses. Moreover, the legacy of chefs who have led or served in the kitchen at Atlas speak to the level of ambition and energy that drives the restaurant’s continental cuisine. While there are locations throughout the Valley that feature more opulent spaces, extravagant ingredients, and legions of staff, there’s a charm that emanates from the personal commitment of everyone at Atlas Bistro that makes it a landmark in the local dining landscape. Atlas Bistro 2515 North Scottsdale Road #18 in Wilshire Plaza Scottsdale, AZ 85258 Tel. (480) 990-2433 Accommodations are available for dietary restrictions or allergies with advance notice.

SOMETHING DIFFERENT • Liz and Ryan met 9 years ago at ASU’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism, where they were in the same, student-run news program and anchored an election night show together. The rest is history! • The wedding, set for March 21, 2020, was cancelled days before the event. A year later, wedding 2.0 was dramatically smaller and different than originally planned, but was more special and magical than Liz and Ryan could ever imagine! • Memories of the bride’s grandparents who have passed were tied onto her bouquet: her maternal grandparents’ wedding bands and paternal grandfather’s Air Force ring, which has a blue sapphire. The tradition of something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue were beautifully captured in this floral arrangement.
