Meeting with her boyfriend David Lucado in Los Angeles, CA

Sunday Somewhere is the brain-child of

always stylish from season to season by using premium faux leather, paying
attention to craftsmanship and using high-end hardware and lining. Their mission
is for every woman to “treat herself to a little

world-class stars and filmmakers, transporting viewers behind the scenes of the
world’s most exclusive and glamorous events, providing them access to the most
influential artists who are defining tomorrow’s style and

begin airing mini biographies on the designers that have influenced and shaped
our pop culture, including Tory Burch, Oscar de la Renta,
Carolina Herrera, Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren, J. Mendel, Diane von
Furstenberg, Alexander Wang and Vera Wang. For Carrie
Bradshaw, a hopeless romantic and high-fashion connoisseur, Cinémoi would most
likely have been the only destination on TV.
