The place to be to support an incredible cause? According to our Lance Avery Morgan, the Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theater is where we’ll be to support the 12th Annual Andy Roddick Foundation Gala that has country music recording star Jake Owen headlining. Since the proceeds of the night’s events benefit the foundation’s afterschool and summer learning programs, we’re on board to encourage involvement in this worthy cause that happens Monday, October 30, 2017, at Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theater.

We caught up with Andy recently, when he was being fitted by Liz...

How does the runway transfer to the red carpet? In so many ways, according to our very own Editor In Chief & Creative Director of The Society Diaries magazine Lance Avery Morgan, who was on the scene today at ABC/KVUE for a red carpet recap with news personality Terri Gruca.

Here were the biggest fashion trends of the evening:

Diversity – as many choices in variety on the red carpet as there is in programming.

White - metallic and white were big draws for all ages....

Let’s face it, literally...we’re all challenged by the elements that can reach our face that aren’t positive. That’s why there’s a revolutionary approach to skin defense: the Chantecaille Anti-Pollution skincare collection.

It reigns in the power of stem cells and skin barrier-strengthening extracts to shield the skin from chemical and radiation-absorbing pollutants, soot, smog
and heavy metals that can be found in the air. The pollutants accelerate aging, damage the skin and cause allergic reactions and inflammation. According to the Chantecaille skincare experts, when used...

The 70s are a big way. Look at current media attention to the decade with series like I’m Dying Up Here on Showtime, This Is Us on NBC and the recent Vinyl on HBO. It’s a major trend and some of the pop cultural fact, the Galleria Dallas is hosting an exhibition of fashion from the 1970s called Night Fever: Fashions from Funk to Disco. It opens on September 20, 2017 and will feature over 75 authentic garments and accessories from this iconic decade. How chic is that?

Curated by Dallas-based Ken Weber of Vintage Martini,...

Problem skin is something we all face, literally. Day and night, each year through and through. Harsh sun, pollution and cold weather can take its toll on a complexion. Then, there’s the aging factor. Of course, we know beauty starts from within and transpires outwardly. But some of us are born with perfect skin (few) and then there are those on a quest to create, then maintain it (most).

The solution, literally, is IT Cosmetics and it’s the brainchild of media personality Jamie Kern Lima, the IT Cosmetics™ co-founder, CEO and original IT Girl™. "I pour my heart and soul into...

We love a curated collection, don’t you? We also love that a collector since his childhood, Gaston-Louis Vuitton (1883-1970) accumulated thousands of objects over his lifetime. His wide-ranging interests and voracious curiosity were intimately bound up with the future of the family business and with travel. The extraordinary compendium of rare objects collected by Gaston-Louis Vuitton, grandson of Louis Vuitton, the founder of one of the world’s most famous luxury brand is seen in the new Cabinet of Wonders tome. Just in time to add to your book collection this fall.
