The Week That Was, 5.14.2022

May 14, 2022

ARE WE officially in spring yet? Like two months ago? Cuz so far it doesn’t feel convincing, not more than an afternoon at a time. Nonetheless, MyLittleBird barreled through the week.

LittleBird Janet jump-started the season of renewal with an eyelift, and shared with us the kinds of details we all want to know about plastic surgery (just look at all the comments she got!).

How Not to F*ck Up Your Face columnist Valerie Monroe favors doing what makes you feel better about the way you look. But she also makes an argument for simply falling in love with what greets you in the mirror (and has ideas about how to combat “resting bitch face”).

Meanwhile, LittleBird Mary plunged into the unknowns of AFib and the limits of current heart-health tests, Green Acre columnist Stephanie walked on the wild side with her controversial approach to plant “litter.” And Little Bird Nancy toured the extensive American fashion exhibit that opened last week at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.

See you all back here again tomorrow.

The most modern of the Met rooms is this 1912-’14 living room by Frank Lloyd Wright for the Francis W. Little Prairie Style house in Wayzata, Minnesota. Storied director Martin Scorsese explained he was challenged to mesh the FLW room with the midcentury gowns of Charles James. His inspiration? To stage them as if they were in the 1945 noir-genre psychological thriller of John Stahl’s adaptation of “Leave Her to Heaven.” So, underneath the glamour, mystery and even danger. / Image © The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
