Have you seen the new Gucci fall winter 2014 menswear collection? Watch the full-length fashion show below. I’m living for the skinny trousers, the boxy, jewel-neck sweaters (my favourite is the dark teal shearling number on look #4), the ultra lux caramel brown leather jacket with a fur collar (look 20) and of course, the textured beige coat (look #11). I also love the idea of using a really light gray turtleneck as the base layering piece. Clean, chic and polished.
Hola mamacita! Hola papi chulo! Despite all my world travels, I had never been to Mexico. It seemed appropriate that Mexico City be my introduction. I’ve heard so many things about this megalopolis — glorious food, terrible traffic, and plenty of pollution, but to be honest, as I stepped off the plane, I had absolutely no idea what to expect.
I had a long list of places to visit in the city, but at the top was the Centro Historico, or the historical center of Mexico City. At its heart was the Zocalo, a plaza lined with immense buildings with ancient facades stained by the pollution and hundreds of years of rich history. Standing at the center of it all, listening to the bells of the cathedral, I felt as though I could have easily been in some other old-world European city.
Queenie and I left our hotel, the Condesa DF in Condesa, at the crack of dawn to beat the crowds and traffic. We spent the entire morning wandering around and paid our dues at some of the old, very old fixtures, such as the Palacio Nacional, Cathedral Metropolitana, Palacio de Bellas Artes, Museo Nacional de Arte and Palacio de Correos. We got back to the hotel just in time to make the last call for breakfast. We couldn’t have had a more productive morning!
On me: Saint Laurent Paris polka-dot button-down shirt (click HERE to buy), 3.1 Phillip Lim shorts (click HERE to buy), patent leather brogues by Gucci (click HERE to buy). On Queenie: Theory shirt, Prada backpack, All Saints jeans.
Thought I’d share some shots during my final days in Los Angeles. I can’t believe taping Cycle 20 of America’s Next Top Model has gone by so quickly. I remember bolting for the airport after the Calvin Klein show on Valentine’s Day during New York Fashion Week… and now it’s April all of a sudden! The past month and a half disappeared in a flash!
I have to say, I’ve developed a strong sense of familiarity with the production team and crew that are a part of the show. I’m so happy to see most of them this time around. Even though I’ve worked with them for such a short amount of time, they’re all really starting to feel like family. I’m gonna miss all of them so much once we wrap taping.

A wee bit late in the game but I’ve just finished watching the fall/winter 2012 Gucci menswear fashion show.
The kind folks at Gucci recently sent me a monogram silk scarf.
Gucci, established in 1921, celebrates 90 years old this year.
Gucci Spring Summer 2011 Final Walkthrough Video
Here's the view from my seat at the Gucci spring/summer 2011 fashion show.
The show was divided into three parts. I personally loved the stellar collection of heavily-embellished (think beaded and feathered) dresses as seen on this video. Absolutely stunning. Hair and make-up looked great, too. Super slick, super Gucci.
