New York City style gets a lot of attention, especially during the holidays -- Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, Rockefeller Center's Christmas Tree and ice-skating rink, lavishly decorated shop windows and New Years Eve's Swarovski Crystal Ball drop in Times Square. It is a sparkling city of romance, ambition and lore. We combed through author Jeryl Brunner's My City, My New York for celebrity style tips from midlifers.
Tony and Emmy-winning triple threat (actress/singer/dancer) Bebe Neuwirth had scarily crisp style as Lilith on Cheers, wildly sexy style in Chicago on Broadway, and was sort of crisply sexy as Morticia Addams.
In real life though, Bebe Neuwirth (here at Chicago's 15th anniversary party) needs good walking shoes (these leopard loafers?) because in My City, My New York, she says, "I love to walk in neighborhoods that I don’t know very well. My husband is a very serious photographer ... the two of us will just walk and walk and take pictures together. And we’ll look at something and he’ll take a picture of it ...and then I’ll take a picture of it. He likes to say, 'One camera and four eyes.' It’s nice for the two of us to discover a new place and share what we see, how we see, and know each other that way. ... it doesn’t matter where you walk. In New York City, there’s a photograph to be taken."
