2014 Whitney Museum Art Party

10/05/2014, Art, Current Affairs, Fashion and Style, Max Mara, Valentino

I had so much fun at the 2014 Whitney Museum Art Party at the Highline Stages the other night. “I need to find a birthday gift for my boyfriend. What should I get him?” asked the lovely Nicky Hilton, who I had dinner with the night before at my friend Tina Craig’s Snob Essentials x HSN bag launch. In attendance are Jane Keltner de Valle, Zoe Saldana, Dree Hemingway, Natalie Joos — her date was really tall and really handsome, Harley Vera-Newton and Maria Giulia Maramotti, all in Max Mara. My favourite highlight of the night, aside from always being outbid by random art buyers, was the photo booth. My friend Eva Chen, in a fabulous MSGM dress, joked that I have a PhD in photo booth posing. Fun times!

Back In Beijing For BOSS Black

15/05/2012, Art, Beijing, Hugo Boss

I’m currently in Beijing for the upcoming Hugo Boss BOSS Black fashion show on Friday. It’s my third time in the city. I’m constantly amazed how Beijing changes at a very rapid pace — power of China and all that. Anyhoo, I landed around lunch time and after a lovely room service meal of chicken and mushroom soup , I went straight to Dashanzi aka the Art district. I visited a few galleries followed by a quick pit stop at a cafe for a cupcake and lemonade. Hugo Boss will post the video over the next few days. Fun times!

Prada Parallel Universes

24/04/2012, Art, Fashion and Style, Prada

Prada recently commissioned Armenian illustrator Vahram Muratyan to create these animated GIFs (the project is called ‘Prada Parallel Universes’) featuring accessories from the blockbuster spring/summer 2012 collection. It’s interesting how Vahram saw such pieces — the handle of the Pyramide bag was used as a steering wheel, the men’s golf shoes (dubbed ‘Rocket shoes’) were used as skyscraper toppers, or, a chic earring, with the case of the rhinestone-studded version. Even the bi-color, saffiano envelope clutch was used as a diving pool.

My fellow blogger colleagues Style Bubble, Pelayo Diaz, Anna Dello Russo, Diane Pernet and Know Wear, will post the rest of the images. Be sure to visit their respective sites.

Louis Vuitton Marc Jacobs Exhibition At The Louvre

08/03/2012, Art, Fashion and Style, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs

Last night was the avant-premiere of the Louis Vuitton Marc Jacobs exhibition at the Louvre’s Les Arts Decoratifs. It was well-attended and fun event. In spite of the very crowded venue, I had so much fun going through Marc’s work at Louis Vuitton. I even had goosebumps when I saw some of the displays, especially Louis Vuitton’s collaborations with notable artists such as Takashi Murakami, Stephen Sprouse and Richard Prince — I can’t believe Marc has been at Vuitton for fifteen years. It felt as if it was only yesterday that I lusted over the silver Stephen Sprouse graffiti bag. I want to go back when it’s not super crowded to thoroughly enjoy the exhibit. But, given the number of Louis Vuitton-obsessed fans in the world out there, I highly doubt this glorious display of creativity will have a private moment of its own.

The Light Installation At Alexander McQueen Fall 2012

08/03/2012, Alexander McQueen, Art, Fall Winter 2012, Fashion and Style

This spectacular light installation greeted showgoers upon entering Salle Wagram, the venue where the Alexander McQueen fall/winter 2012 was held the other day. I have no idea what it’s made out of but it looked like a couple of hundred (or a thousand) Christmas tree ball ornaments lit up with some sort of fiber-optic cords. So breathtaking and enchanting.

Bryanboy by Darcel/Craig Redman at Colette

29/02/2012, Art, Current Affairs, Fashion Bloggers

After the Gareth Pugh show earlier this evening, Anna dello Russo gave me a lift in her Merc to go to Parisian institution Colette for the Darcel x Marc Newson event. New York-based artist Darcel (aka Craig Redman) presented 150 portraits of 150 people (fashion people, celebrities, editors, etc) for Colette’s 15th anniversary. It’s an honor they made a portrait of me — it’s funny how people came up throughout the day telling me about it. I thought it’s so cool! My portrait was displayed beside my beloved Anna and of course, with my fellow internet people, Tavi, Scott, Garance, Tommy, Susie et al. Anna and I had a blast! Such a shame I had to leave the party early because someone has to run to the Apple store at Opera to buy a new external hard drive, pop by a Paris apartment to switch memory cards before rushing to Mugler. And that someone was… moi!

Vienna Photo Diary (70+ Pictures!!!)

05/01/2012, Art, Current Affairs, Fashion and Style, Vienna

I’ve always wanted to go to Vienna but because of my ridiculous schedule, I’ve never really had the opportunity to do so until now. What made this visit even more ridiculous was that I wasted five whole days of our trip in bed because I was sick with flu. I could barely walk and I had the worst fever and sore throat. I didn’t even get to ring the New Year — I was asleep! Talk about a harsh year-ender… it was only until two days before my trip ended that I started to feel better. So, here’s forty eight hours in Vienna, as documented through my lens. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I do. Vienna is one motherload of an enormous museum. That’s how beautiful it is. I am astounded how dedicated Austrians are when it comes to art, history and culture. They spend vast amount of resources, from money to city space, to celebrate art in different forms.

Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo

10/11/2011, Art, Current Affairs, Fashion and Style, Louis Vuitton

I was a few minutes early at my Louis Vuitton appearance so instead of waiting with the throngs of Japanese shoppers, fan girls and the Fashion’s Night Out mob, the kind folks at Louis Vuitton brought me to the seventh floor of their Omotesando flagship, also known as the Espace Louis Vuitton. What a great, calming oasis to take a break from the camera-wielding public for a short period of time. The current exhibition, Geometry of Light, features American artist Alyson Shotz.

Oh, let me say their water bar is absolutely divine! Ginger-infused water tastes sooo good!
