As some of you guys already know, I recently went to Singapore to take part in the Charles & Keith festivities at the newly-opened flagship in Ngee Ann City. My beloved Yoshiko Kris-Webb (who I haven’t seen in ages, flew in from Tokyo), Liu Wen (who looked MAJOR in Calvin Klein Collection), Daniel Henney and K-POP Girls Generation were also there. In addition to the store opening, Charles & Keith held a runway show and an after party. Fun times!
It’s been quite awhile since I last obsessed over a designer collaboration. I must say Junya Watanabe Comme des Garcons’ capsule collection for Loewe is nothing but spectacular. I love the rendition on Loewe’s iconic Amazona bag and of course, the jeans — a delightful melange of leather, denim, suede, and different textures and fabrics.

You must be living in a different planet if you haven’t seen Miuccia Prada’s blockbuster spring-summer 2014 collection. Her usual venue, Via Foggazzaro 36, turned into a museum of all sorts, thanks to the murals on the walls featuring artists she cherry-picked. Talk about a visual and sensory feast! Don’t even get me started on the colourful, intarsia furs. Or when Britney’s latest track, “Work Bitch”, blared through the speakers. This is definitely one of those Prada shows that you get so high from watching and everything else after that is a downer. Bravo!
The legendary and iconic Kate Moss is the star of Stuart Weitzman’s fall 2013 campaign dubbed “Made For Walking”. I love how Kate was styled in her usual self — the hair, the big, chubby coat (so Kate Moss), the pea coat and the turtleneck in conjuction with selection of Stuart’s boots. So effortless…

As you guys already know, I’m currently serving as a judge for H&M’s latest ’50 States of Fashion’ social media contest to promote the launch of H&M USA’s e-commerce site.
I represent the North East region, which covers 9 states, my home state New York included. Some interesting stats — we’ve received over 1,500 photo submissions from my region and over 16,000 votes were submitted on those photos. My job is to pick the finalist representing my region from a group of “well-liked” semi-finalists. Not an easy task when the submissions represent a wide variety of personal styles, aesthetics, etc.
I’m proud to announce Francisca (Ala Mode Wearhouse) (instagram: alamodewearhouse), from Massachusetts, as my personal choice for finalist representing the North East region. As a finalist, Francisca will receive a $250 H&M shopping gift card and a chance to win the grand prize (a trip to NYC + a major shopping spree).
Visit http://www.50statesoffashion.com to view the rest of the submissions from all regions in the USA.

It’s been quite awhile since I last attended a fashion show that’s open to the public so when American retail behemoth Express invited me last weekend to attend their ‘Rock the Sidewalk’ show, I thought, why not? It was a massive event held at the legendary Times Square here in New York City — just look at the aerial view of the crowds. Pure insanity! The show featured looks from their upcoming Holiday 2013 collection. Some of my favourite girls, Frida Gustavsson and my beloved Kasia Struss walked the show. I thought many of the menswear looks were terrific. I also loved the red lace dress Kasia wore towards the end — a very sexy, wham glam bam, frock perfect for the endless holiday parties this fall.
Many of you asked on Twitter and Instagram what I wore at the show. Both the sweater and the shorts are from Express. Click HERE to buy the striped sweater online.
To kick off their Fall 2013 project “Life Your Life” initiative, the lovely folks over at American Eagle invited some of their favourite friends to take part in their Rock Your Walk video project. I went to the launch party at their Times Square flagship store a few days ago and bumped into my lovelies Leandra Medine (of Manrepeller) and my fellow ANTM colleague Johnny Wujek who DJed at the event. Vanessa Hudgens and Jessica Szohr were also there. I also had so much fun taking over American Eagle’s official instagram account that night!
I love American Eagle denim. They’re so easy to wear, the price points are terrific and I could wear them with pretty much anything! It’s so hot here in NYC so, at the very last minute, decided to cut off my American Eagle jeans and turn them into shorts!
Why don’t you take part in the festivities and submit a video of yourself walking in their jeans? The best videos will be added to the an ongoing runway video and will be featured on American Eagle’s major LED billboard on Times Square! Visit www.ae.com/RockYourWalk for more information or to submit your videos!
