1. Alice Burdeu is LOVELY TO THE MAX!!!! Fashion journalist Patty
Huntington gave me a quick preview backstage at the Alex Perry show and
the moment I walked into the room, there she was, Alice in flesh! She’s
super nice and accommodating! I seriously felt like a starstrucked
15-year old girl! Here’s a quick photo I took. I have no idea how to get rid of the red eye so
whatevs. She’s soo tall and beautiful. Love, love, LOVE Alice!

2. I spent most of the night at this lovely place called The Piano Room for Camilla & Marc’s after party. A lot of the fashion folk were there, from stylists, loads of PR people, this chap named Grant Pearce (who is EVERYWHERE and BFFs with Kirstie Clements!) and of course, Kate Bosworth. All the bars in Sydney are non-smoking so I stayed at the balcony to smoke and Kate friggin Bosworth was 2 feet away from me the entire time. Literally! Now… don’t ask me why I didn’t come up to her. I’d rather pretend I’m “cool” (my ass haha) and not be bothered by her but deep inside I wanna go like “OMG KATE BOSWORTH!!!” Hahaha! I’m sure she’s lovely but it’s gonna be so weird if I came up to her etc.

3. There’s this guy buyer from one of the most exclusive stores in the world who I think is quite possibly one of the most severely-refined fashion person I have EVER, EVER seen in my entire life. Well him and Martin Webb (who is 104% hardcore but more on him later) are fierce. The buyer guy is quite a looker alright and he’s also impeccably well-dressed. Put anyone next to him and they would probably look like a scruffy peasant. Yep!!! But yeah… me and my new OZ friends (oh wow!) were talking about him because he was REALLY hardcore FASSSSHHHHHHHYONNNNN. It really made me think — how do these refined people do it? Maybe you’re born with it, maybe it’s maybelline? I cannot picture all these chica folks do random pedestrian things like wipe their butts off with toilet paper or what have you. Do they sleep at night in oversized tattered t-shirts? What do they wear lounging around the house? Juicy Couture tracksuits? Hahaha! What what what?

4. What is up with all these Australian strangers asking me/people for cigarettes? Culture shock much? They really just go straight up to you as if you’ve known each other for a long time, do some chit chat and then bam they ask you for a cigarette!! I think it’s cute but a bit odd at the same time. I’m not being selfish at all, no no, I just find it weird that you can actually come up to someone and ask for a fag. Just. like. that. Do that in the Philippines and you’ll probably get shot on the kneecaps. Just kidding! Hahaha!

I’ll try to do it tomorrow and see if someone will give me a ciggie. Haha!

Front Row at Alex Perry

It's 2AM… I should be sleeping right now but I just got back and I'm SERIOUSLY backlogged. Let me do a couple of quick posts. It's been KERRR-AZZZY today but it's all fabulous and good!

Bryanboy, Alex Perry

Alex Perry is fantastic! I sat front-row at his show earlier tonight. Alex is Australia's most glamorous designer. He's the ultimate go-to guy for frocks built for the red carpet. His dresses are exquisite and absolutely incredible. More pics to follow! I think he should step up his game further, i.e. show overseas and go up, up, up and away!

Remember Jonathan from Australia’s Next Top Model? Oh dear. Hahaha! I saw Jonathan Pease and Alex Perry at this cafe a few hours before Alex’s show started and then I saw him again after the show. He’s super nice!! This photo doesn’t give him justice AT ALL but whatevs. He’s GORGEOUS! They all are here in bloody Australia!!!

Fern Mallis @ Australian Fashion Week

I love Fern! She’s totally my new BFF! You probably live under a rock or in a cave if you don’t know who Fern Mallis is.

Fern Mallis

Fern is the Queen Bee of New York fashion week and she’s also here in Sydney for the shows. She’s soo friendly and nice. We had quite a chat and I LOVE her!

Welcome to Sydney!

28/04/2008, Australia, Australian Fashion Week Spring 0809

Welcome to Sydney!

It's not just Mischa Barton who's gone Sydneyside. Guess who's in town for fashion week? Y'all know I am not capable of keeping secrets for too long and now that I'm here, let's BRING IT ON. THIRD WORLD REPRESENT!

Welcome to Sydney

Rosemount Australian Fashion Week (Spring/Summer 2008-2009) kicked off today and I missed the first day of shows because of the last-minute flight but we're going full throttle tomorrow! I'll do my best to attend a lot of the shows, meet some of the models, designers and the rest of the lovely Aussie fash pack. I have 39-40 shows on my list. CRAZINESS!! This is gonna be fun, fun, FUN!

PS. Can I just say something? I've been here for the past five hours and let me tell you, Sydney is brimming with gorgeous guys! Major eye candy EVERYWHERE! I'm not even talking about fashion faggots (hopefully I'll see some of them soon)  but man, all these Sydney commoners, from the average guy to your suit-wearing city slicker walking around the CBD (Central Business District?), well, a lot of them are friggin GORGEOUS!!!!! The moment I got out of the airport right down to strolling around town, all these tall, hot, blond guys with funky haircuts are everywhere. I swear it's like Sweden all over again!

Obsession du jour: Sydney Harbour Bridge

21/04/2008, Australia

Obsession du jour: Sydney Harbour Bridge

I’ve been watching far too many videos on YouTube recently and the Sydney Harbour Bridge caught my eye. Climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge… who knew?

Holy kangaroo drunk on BYOB sheila jackeroo batman, can you imagine the photo opportunities? I have a fear of heights but OMG, I wanna climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge! For realz! The only thing that’s turning me off is that hideous jumpsuit. I bet that jumpsuit stinks like hell. I bet they stink like sweaty poms fresh from Heathrow airport. You see, I have major problems with rented "sports" things. In my short lifespan of 19 years (thank you Conde Nast), I found myself in numerous situations where I had to rent smelly "gear". For instance, when I got my scuba diving open water course card back in the ages, the jumpsuit I borrowed stank like onions. And when I went ice skating two years ago, the roller skates I had were so awful I doused my feet with rubbing alcohol before and after I skated. I don’t see myself climbing the Harbour Bridge anytime soon but if I do… what would I wear?

Well, click click click for the answer!
