Jennifer Siebel Newsom
When San Francisco native Jennifer Siebel Newsom arrived in Hollywood, pursuing an acting career after her time with the U.S. women’s junior national soccer team was cut short by injury, the fair-haired Stanford alum had little trouble landing recurring roles on the CBS hospital drama Presidio Med, and later NBC’s 24-inspired Life.
Congrats are in order for first lady Jennifer Siebel Newsom, whose documentary, Miss Representation, has been selected as part of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival's U.S Documentary competition. Miss Representation, which officially launches this January, closely examines the media's representation of women. We chatted with Jen a few months ago about the film, and she shared with us her inspirations, goals and advice for young women today. Check out that interview here and the Miss Representation trailer below.
We always hit up La Boutique when we're in the mood for a unique fashion confection, but tomorrow gives us an even better reason to stop by. First Lady of San Francisco, Jennifer Siebel Newsom and funny girl Margaret Cho will be there to celebrate Jennifer's documentary, Miss Representation, and it's not just any party.
We suspect an opportunity to shop in the name of women’s empowerment and mingle with First Lady Jennifer Siebel Newsom and New York-based designer Behnaz Sarafpour on Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. may prompt more than a few local fashion fans to table their workday obligations in favor of a lengthy lunchtime excursion.
Actress-filmmaker Jennifer Siebel Newsom and her husband, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, welcomed the arrival of their first child today.
Weighing in at a healthy 7 lbs. 12 oz. and 20.5 inches, Montana Tessa Siebel Newsom was born at 12:39 p.m.
Their daughter is named after the state where the couple's July 2008 wedding was held on the grounds of the Siebel family's Bitteroot Valley ranch. Her middle name honors the Mayor's late mother, Tessa Newsom, who died of breast cancer in 2002.
A little bit of Paris alighted on Union Square Tuesday at the opening of the first free-standing Cop.Copine boutique in the U.S.
Located at 343 Powell Street along the ground floor of the St. Francis Hotel, the chic space features the sophisticated, yet eminently wearable, stylings of the French fashion company founded by designer Leon Nedelian.
His biggest fan in San Francisco? Ophthalmologist Dr. Lillie Mosaddegh, who with her husband, Ahmad Bayat, purchased the exclusive U.S. rights to open Cop.Copine boutiques around the country.
Housed prominently in Baccarat's former space, Cop.Copine officially opens today in Union Square. The Parisian fashion label is looking to bring a taste of French Bohemian style to San Francisco with their beautifully draped dresses, cutting-edge fabrics, a youthful edge and of course, a certain je ne sais quoi. With their grand opening party (celebrating Jennifer Siebel Newsom) still over a month away, you have just enough time to assemble the perfect ensemble for what's sure to be an affair to remember.
Leigh began her jewelry company in 1986 and is proud that all the pieces are made locally. Crafted from semi-precious stones such as baroque pearls, amethyst, turquoise and moonstone, and set in silver or 24-K gold, Leigh’s work has long boasted of a star-studded following (Madonna, Melanie Griffith, Uma Thurman).
As you already know, Monday was a heady day of power politicos who parachuted into San Francisco.
And the majority of these players (minus First Lady Michelle Obama, though she was, of course, invited) ended that day at an intimate dinner hosted by Protocol Chief Charlotte Mailliard Shultz and her husband, Former Sec. of State George Shultz in their Russian Hill aerie.
