Electric Zoo 2014 (Day 2 x Zedd)

02/09/2014, Current Affairs, Electric Zoo, Events, Music

I thought I’d share some of my fave highlights on Day 2 of Electric Zoo 2014 Music Festival. At first I was like, hmm, should I go back for another round? Maybe, maybe not, maybe, maybe not. I ended up going on Day 2 and I have zero regrets because Day 3, like last year, was cancelled PREMATURELY by the authorities because of this so-called “severe weather forecast”, which, btw, didn’t happen. Just a few minutes of drizzle (YAASSSSS!) and pretty much this side of the Atlantic comes to a complete halt. Americans, especially in the East Coast, are particularly paranoid when it comes to weather.

I loved Dyro, Zedd and Armin’s sets. I had so much fun hanging out with the kids. I think I’m gonna maximize this moment before I reach that point of no return. I don’t wanna be one of those 40 year olds who look like 40 year olds but act like a bunch of 16 year olds, ya know? Not a good lewk.

I can’t believe summer is almost over and fashion month (PLEASE DON’T REFER IT AS “FASHION WEEK” BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW IT AIN’T A WEEK) begins, well, on Wednesday. Going all out over the weekend was a good way to remind myself that I’m human, I’m capable of letting my hair down and have lots fun.

Jason Wu x 2014 Young Friends of Acria Summer Soiree

13/06/2014, Current Affairs, Events, Fashion and Style, Jason Wu, Models

I had fun the other night at the Young Friends of ACRIA’s second annual summer soiree hosted by Jason Wu. I love going out especially for a good cause! ACRIA held an auction, featuring work by Steven Klein, Steven Meisel, Juergen Teller, Inez and Vinoodh and more, to benefit people living with HIV. Highlights of my night? Jason, as always, gave a beautiful speech and catching up with my lovely Jaime King who looked so beautiful in Jason Wu Fall 2014. Oh, Adriana Lima looked like a billion dollars. She’s flawless! My earliest memory of her was back in the day when she did all those Dior ads — and now she’s a woman!

All Aboard The Brooklyn-Bound Christian Dior Ferry

09/05/2014, Celebrity Gossip, Christian Dior, Current Affairs, Events, Fashion and Style, Rihanna

Ladies and gentlemen, the next Brooklyn-bound Dior Ferry will arrive in 2 minutes. The next stop is Brooklyn Navy Yard. Please mind the gap between yourself and the models.

I texted my friend Jane, Glamour Magazine’s new Fashion News Director at 2PM: “Let’s meet at 6:15PM, 35th street pier, if you can. I want to be there early.” We both decided to take the logo-emblazoned chartered ferry (complete with all-white seat covers and cocktails served) to Brooklyn Navy Yard, the venue of yesterday evening’s Christian Dior 2015 cruise fashion show. As we got out of our cars, an army of handsome all-American male model ushers greeted us. They looked cute in double-breasted navy blazers, some dressed in complete sailor ensembles with the Dior insignia patch. I had a hard time stopping myself from using the guys as a backdrop for an instagram shot. A staggering amount of magazine editors, as well as a slew of impeccably-dressed, Dior-clad clients ditched their cars and took that ferry ride with us. I guess people are traumatized (and smarter) from their experience after that major Alexander Wang show in February.

Everyone Was There

07/05/2014, Celebrity Gossip, Events, Fashion and Style

“I have NOT seen you in a year,” the formidable Naomi exclaimed when I greeted her after she walked in with Riccardo Tisci. Monday night was one big blur. A few things I remember happening from that night: dancing with the very pint-size and pretty Reese Witherspoon, admiring Lupita Nyong’o’s dress (looked amazing in real life), stroking Olivier Rousteing’s bare chest, Rihanna coming up to me and shamelessly asking her for a ciggie on the dancefloor (her bodyguard opened a fresh pack from his pocket and lit it for me), sitting on Riccardo’s lap, Anne Hathaway introducing herself to me “Hi, I’m Anne” while I cozied up with Jason Wu and Diane Kruger. Everyone was there. I can’t even! I didn’t wanna be the loser who took photos left, right and center so after a few photos, I kept my phone firmly in my pocket and enjoyed the night.

2013 INYT Luxury Conference Singapore

03/12/2013, Current Affairs, Events, Lovegold, Singapore

Earlier this year, the formidable Suzy Menkes contacted me to participate on this year’s International New York Times Luxury Conference at the Capella Resort in Sentosa Island, Singapore. The theme focused on luxury’s new frontier — South East Asia. I’m really glad I went. It’s my first time to attend Suzy’s annual luxury conferences and boy I learned a lot. I loved Wen Zhou’s (Phillip Lim’s CEO) humor! Although my session was quite light (it was a Q&A) compared to other key speakers, some complete with powerpoint presentations, I must say my nerves got the best of me. It’s not every day that I get to speak in front of over 500 luxury executives! Before my session started, I spent about four hours sitting on the front row watching other speakers with my partner-in-crime in Singapore, Anna Sui. I wanted to go to the bathroom so bad to do number one. However, because the event is being filmed, taped and livestreamed, I didn’t want to stand up and be taped walking out of the room so I held it together.

Because it’s a conference and not fashion month (when everyone looks like a Christmas tree), I ditched the usual accessories and went for this gold flower pin from David Thomas’ collaboration with Jason of Beverly Hills called “Gentleman”.
