In flight, alight

This morning, Michelle Obama wore a dress by Isabel Toledo. A few years ago, I had the deep honor of sitting with Rachel and listening to Isabel and her husband Ruben talk with equal parts humor, grace, and irreverence about the process of creating. The magic carpet that they sail on, fueled by deep, pacific love and admiration was palpable and led me to crown them, along with Rachel Feinstein and John Currin: caped crusaders, modern day champions of old-fashioned, elusive matrimonial bliss. For more thoughts on creativity, watch the joyous Sonia Rykiel in the above video, by the Toledos.
