One of the things I love about Germany (and Germans!!) is that everything works here like clockwork. People are prompt and efficient. I accomplished so many things earlier today — had lunch with my lovely friend Graeme who’s visiting from London (haven’t seen him since Copenhagen last year), did a bit of shopping (more like window shopping — DUH) at The Corner and Quartier 206. My late afternoon however was spent at a small warehouse-like venue for my HUGO fitting. I had to pick three outfits for HUGO (by Hugo Boss) events later this week. We’ll see what I end up wearing. I’m excited! ;-)

Remember my amazing black sequined jacket by HUGO? Well, only 250 of these limited-edition HUGO sequined jackets exists and the amazing folks at HUGO BOSS are giving two jackets away. Jacket number 42 was given to me in New York a few weeks ago.
To win one of the jackets, click HERE. Deadline for entries is Tuesday, January 3, 2011.
HUGO BOSS recently held a contest on Foursquare and the winner, Adele Fevrier, flew in from Paris to shop with Chloe Sevigny at HUGO BOSS’ Meatpacking District in New York. Here’s a quick video summary of last week’s experience.
I’ll post the photos as soon as I can.
How do you feel about fashion brands becoming messengers instead of being the message? HUGO BOSS just launched their online TV/video venture called HUGO BOSS TALK. The videos will feature international personalities from different creative and/or professional backgrounds like fashion, music or art.

After the super chic Bottega Veneta dinner at the Nobis Hotel last night, Elin and I popped by the Hugo Boss flagship store opening in Biblioteksgatan. I’ve been told Adrien Brody, Chloe Sevigny and Noomi Rapace were also there but you know me, I was busy swooning over hot Swedish guys (it’s that kid in the candy store feeling) over American celebs, just kidding. What fun!

Klaus Wowereit, Mayor of Berlin
At the Boss Black/Hugo Boss show, I had the pleasure of meeting Klaus Wowereit who is the Mayor of Berlin. He’s one of the openly-gay, major European city Mayors — Bertrand Delanoe of Paris and Ole von Beust of Hamburg.
According to Wikipedia, he coined the famous German phrase ‘Ich bin schwul, und dasist aucht gut so’ which means “I am gay, and that’s all right, too.”
I think it’s fantastic that one could be a politician regardless of their sexual orientation… I don’t think it’s gonna happen in backwater Philippines where the government is still, whether you like it or not, very homophobic.
Jessica Alba in Paris and Berlin
How funny. I saw Jessica "Don't Call Me Latina" Alba at Chanel Haute Couture in Paris just a few days ago…
… and then she sat a few seats away from me at the Hugo Boss show here in Berlin.
Don't call her Latina…
Bruno Pieters – Hugo Hugo Boss Spring 2010 Menswear
I love this shot that I took of Bruno Pieters backstage at the Hugo Hugo Boss spring/summer 2010 menswear show.
Calm before the storm as they say…
Thanks Sonny for introducing me to Bruno!
