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”.

Giorgio Armani One Night Only New York City

25/10/2013, Celebrity Gossip, Current Affairs, Events, Fashion and Style, Giorgio Armani

Yesterday night belonged to Giorgio Armani. Actually, scratch that. October 24, as decreed by Mayor Bloomberg, is Giorgio Armani Day in New York City. I spent most part of my evening at his “One Night Only” event, featuring a retrospective of his Privé collections on a runway show and an exhibit called “Eccentrico“. I’ll share more photos on a separate blog post. Still gobsmacked how Mr. A’s team transformed the massive SuperPiers into a really chic venue. No detail was spared, from the carpeting to the scent wafting in the air! Yesterday night was definitely a night to remember. Bravo!

After attending Anna Wintour’s intimate cocktail at Armani Hotel’s Bamboo Bar in Milan for my beloved Lucky Magazine Editor-in-Chief Eva Chen, I rushed to the Stuart Weitzman’s new boutique (designed by Zaha Hadid) in Milan’s ultra chic Via Sant’Andrea. The iconic Kate Moss, the star of Stuart’s Fall 2013 “Made for Walking” ad campaign, was also there.

In Manila, Philippines, the Stuart Weitzman flagship store is located at SM Aura Premier.

Rita Ora x Calvin Klein at BaselWorld 2013

28/04/2013, Basel, Calvin Klein, Celebrity Gossip, Current Affairs, Events

Oh Rita Ora. Not only I was impressed to see her perform in person, I must say that I was truly impressed by her personal style transformation as well. She looked s-t-u-n-n-i-n-g in Calvin Klein.

Celebrating Jason Wu at Beatrice Inn

03/02/2013, Current Affairs, Events, Fashion and Style, Fashion Designers, Glamour USA, Jason Wu, Models

Cindi Leive, Glamour magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, hosted a very intimate dinner at the Beatrice Inn to celebrate my beloved Jason Wu. As you already know, the First Lady of the United States of America, Michelle Obama (aka FLOTUS), wore Jason’s dress once again at President Barack Obama’s Inauguration Ball.

I don’t know about you but I always, always get teary-eyed whenever I hear other people toast other people for their achievements. Cindi gave a heart-warming speech about Jason. She also wore the floral dress version of the top I’ve been eying online.

It was a good crowd. The ultra gorgeous and iconic Stephanie Seymour, the star of Jason Wu’s new ad campaign sat across me, Vogue’s Valerie Boster was the perfect seatmate, Chanel Iman showed me photos of her new car (I died) in California and encouraged me to finally get my driver’s license, my gurl Hilary Rhoda who I haven’t seen since we filmed the Rebecca Minkoff Christmas video was there and of course, I love Martha Hunt! She’s a knockout stunner.

Balmain & Vogue Celebrating ‘The Pierre’

13/12/2012, Balmain, Current Affairs, Events, Fashion and Style, Karlie Kloss, Models, Vogue USA

125th Street in Harlem? Why not? Balmain and Vogue Magazine celebrated the launch of ‘The Pierre” handbag the other night at the amazing Red Rooster restaurant. Kicked off by meeting Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing who flew in from Paris just for the dinner, had a few cocktails before feasting on the best cornbread I’ve had in AGES. The lithe Russian Editor Anya Ziourova was one of my seatmates and we both LOVE the chicken. Ended the night with the gorgeous Kasia Struss dropping me off and stopping by at my apartment for a quick vodka nightcap before she went home. I must say it’s one of the best dinner parties I’ve been to in ages, hands down.

In other news, I really love this photo of Constance Jablonski, moi and Karlie Kloss. Even I can’t deal with the fabulosity of this image…

Max Mara x 2012 Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center Fall Party

26/11/2012, Current Affairs, Events, For A Good Cause, Max Mara

There are very few reasons for a downtown guy like myself to head uptown — Barney’s, Bergdorf’s, the shops along Madison Ave and of course, good causes. For instance, cancer-related causes have a special place in my heart. I’ve lost my aunt Cynthia to the disease a few years ago. The Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, along with the fabulous folks at Max Mara, recently held their annual Fall Party at the super chic Four Seasons Restaurant. I had so much fun at the event. Thank you Max Mara for the experience!

Carine Roitfeld’s Ball, Paris

08/10/2012, Carine Roitfeld, Current Affairs, Events, Fashion and Style, Fashion Designers, Fashion Editors, Karlie Kloss, Models, Paris

I know it doesn’t sound very me to say I haven’t gone to many parties the past month. When you’re staying far from the city center and have early morning appointments and shows to attend, you have no choice but to tuck yourself under the sheets as early as possible. But when Mama Carine invites you to her ultra chic black-tie ball to celebrate her collaboration with MAC Cosmetics, you better put that mink bow tie on and go where the fashion flock goes. Where else could I dance with the legendary Mr Alaia, shake my booty on the dance floor with Mr Ackermann, have Mr Testino tell me “I looooooove your fur!” and freak out with Rachel Zoe at the courtyard because of a mystery man going nuts with the fire extinguisher? Only at Carine’s ball where fashion stars align, let their hair down and have lots of fun. Best party of the season. #NUFFSAID
