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.

Back in Bangkok, I had lunch at the Greyhound Cafe (it’s a quintessential Bangkok institution) with several Thai designers. I told them that the pleasure was all mine. Although I’ve been to Bangkok a handful of times over the years, I never really had the opportunity to get to know the (thriving, if I may add) local fashion scene until now. Fun times!

At long last, we finally met.
Such an honor to have met the legendary, the one and only, the grand master of them all… Mr. Azzedine Alaia!
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

I’m very excited for Donatella Versace’s official online e-commerce store which is going to be launched very soon. I’m a big fan of Donatella’s work. The energy and creativity she brings to the house is very much synch with her brother Gianni’s legacy. Donatella has worked with fashion bloggers in the past and I’m thrilled to be working with them once again this season — I’m very curious what outfit I’ll wear to her show! Anyway, I suggest that you immerse yourself in Donatella’s world — visit their website, subscribe to their email newsletter and visit their YouTube page to watch the latest runway and backstage videos of Donatella’s collections.
Have you seen this video of Karl Lagerfeld interviewing… himself? Thanks for the giggles, Karl!

I love this feature from Harper’s Bazaar. Vera Wang looks AMAZING; same with her gorgeous Los Angeles home. So inspirational, no? Whenever my friend Tina (from Bagsnob) and I see inspirational Asians, we always joke around saying ‘she’s the template’. Well, after watching this video, Vera is truly a template!
Back to my Fashion’s Night Out 2011 Tokyo diaries… it was so nice seeing Mr. Cavalli once again. I simply had to praise him for his smashing spring/summer 2012 womenswear show and of course, his stylist Panos Yiapanis who styled the collection.

Are you ready for the Versace x H&M Collaboration? I am. The collection is going to be released on November 17 in various markets around the world. If you live in the USA or Canada, it’s going to be available on November 19.
For two days, starting today October 25, the iconic Donatella Versace will answer select questions submitted through Twitter from fans. Ask Donatella anything about the upcoming collaboration with H&M with the hashtag #askdonatella.
I rushed straight to Via Gesu after the stunning Prada show earlier this evening. Donatella invited me for a casual meet. I thought it was very sweet and kind of her to invite me to their rehearsal, a full twenty four hours before the show. Models Siri Tollerod and Lindsey Wixson were also there, walking the long, lighted runway in these amazing, skyscraper platform shoes. Versace shows are usually high-energy, with gorgeous girls sashaying to pumping music. Donatella told me there are going to be forty-plus looks tomorrow and she liked the idea of bringing big hair back after several seasons of sleek, straight hair.
In other news, my bf arrived in Milan this afternoon. He, too, met the iconic Donatella. I don’t usually tag him along to my business affairs but I needed someone to capture a photo of me and Ms. Versace.
Are you excited for the Versace show tomorrow night? I am.
