Pirelli Calendar 2011 by Karl Lagerfeld

Pirelli 2011 calendar created by Karl Lagerfeld has launched today in Moscow. Lagerfeld took inspiration in Homer's writing, as well as in ancient Greek mithology. The result - a set of stunning black-and-white photos of the world's most famous models like Baptiste Giabiconi,  Natasha Poli, and Daria Werbowy. One of my favourite Hollywood icons, Julianne Moore, was cast as Hera.

Esprit De Corps at the National Ballet of Canada

Last week Fira&Capa were invited to a private reception held by the National Ballet's Esprit de Corps  - a non-profit group supporting the ballet's Apprentice program. The reception was held at the Four Seasons Center for the Arts and the guest list included principal dancers Guillaume Cote and Heather Ogden, along with other members of the National Ballet. The catered event was followed by a dressed rehearsal of  Prokofiev's Cinderella - a breathtaking performance choreographed by James Kudelka. As usually, the production was beautiful, as were the costumes and stage decorations.

Andrei Kovalev - Solo Show at Kodiak Gallery

images from

I remember seeing Andrei's paintings for the first time... I was deeply moved by the beautiful, heart-felt works that were equally relevant to me, an inexperienced 20-year old, and to a seasoned art lover. I often think of Andrei's house filled with his and his wife's art work and warmth and kindness that surrounded these people.

Andrei Kovalev will be exhibiting his paintings at Kodiak Gallery in the Distillery District. The opening night is this Thursday, November 18th, 6-9p.m. Visit the event's Facebook page or his website for more information.

I’ve got two tickets to see Wicked from one of my suppliers and was thrilled to have my first musical experience! I’ve read countless reviews on-line – most of them beyond positive. I’ve research Wicked on Wiki, I’ve listened to the best songs on YouTube… I was super exited!

We got to the theater just on time to have a pre-show Coke and a cookie (they have amazing shortbread cookies with a Toblerone on top).  There were no empty seats and the excitement grew by the minute…

In Heaven...By Kilian

Those who know me well know that I am prone to obsessions… My latest one is by Kilian, a niche collection of mind-blowing fragrances that define style, luxury, and impeccable taste.

Kilian comes from a family of cognac-makers (this is probably another reason why I am so in love with his fragrances – they are as noble as cognac). He’s been working with the best perfume houses in the world, but preserved his individuality.  I am wearing his Straight to Heaven scent now and I am totally smitten by it. I can’t stop smelling my wrist… Too bad I only have a sample of the fragrance – I wish I had a gallon, I wish I could swim in it, I wish I could smell it every minute…

You can find Kilian fragrances at Holt Renfrew on Bloor. They retail for $250, but you can get the bottle refilled at half the price. There are 9 scents in total, and each of them is intense and rich and sophisticated. Straight to Heaven is on my Christmas wish list this year, but I am determined to own all Kilian parfumes one day.

Perfume as an art...

GotStyle's Red Light Affair SS11

Images Fira.
The Red Light Affair was my last fashion party of the season. I’ve decided against the Holt Renfrew afternoon show that day, and focused my energy on getting to the GotStyle event and a B-Day party later the same evening.

After having a few shots of brandy at my moms’, we took a cab to 62 Bathurst street. To my surprise, the building was dark and looked completely empty. I’ve checked the date – correct, I’ve BBMed Capa – she had no idea…After 15 minutes of cursing and frantic e-mailing, we’ve realized the show was happening at the Amsterdam Brewery, 21 Bathurst. I remember the brewery being mentioned in the invitation, but for the life of me I don’t recall seeing the address. I am not saying it wasn’t there, but next time let’s make it BOLD and PROMINENT to avoid confusing tipsy and absent-minded bloggers.

Discount Shoe Shopping and Must-Have Winter Booties

Miss 60, $39

It's time to do some discount sandal shopping and, of course, get this years' most wanted short bootie. I love shopping on-line at the Little Burgundy - free shipping, free returns, great deals.

I am torn between the two Miss 60 sandals, and tree Diesel Fall/Winter styles. I am leaning towards the last pair of boots - most expensive but so-so hot.
