I had fun the other night at the Young Friends of ACRIA’s second annual summer soiree hosted by Jason Wu. I love going out especially for a good cause! ACRIA held an auction, featuring work by Steven Klein, Steven Meisel, Juergen Teller, Inez and Vinoodh and more, to benefit people living with HIV. Highlights of my night? Jason, as always, gave a beautiful speech and catching up with my lovely Jaime King who looked so beautiful in Jason Wu Fall 2014. Oh, Adriana Lima looked like a billion dollars. She’s flawless! My earliest memory of her was back in the day when she did all those Dior ads — and now she’s a woman!

“You’ve been wearing a lot of white lately, you’re gonna love our gift,” my friend Gustavo squealed as he handed me my present when I celebrated my birthday dinner at the Monarch Room last month. He was right. This gorgeous ivory laser-cut leather “Daphne” clutch by Jason Wu is the most perfect thing ever. It’s slightly roomier than most clutches; it also functions as a chic day piece! I love a good bag that can fit way more than a credit card and a lip gloss tube.

Behold yet another major sweatshirt (Resort 2014) from one of my favourite British designers, Christopher Kane. Picked up this piece from Luisa Via Roma yesterday. There’s something romantic yet perverted about it. Obsessed with the lace-style, sheer, embroidered cobweb white floral on the front. Perfect for a little bit of nip exposure from time to time…
I don’t know what it is but lately, I’m obsessed with simplicity. I love the idea of keeping everything to the bare minimum. Why carry a bulky bag when a small, clutch will do? Why bring a heavy wallet when there’s the lizard case option? Why wear a bangle when you can sport a chic, thin, gold bracelet? Why carry a packet of cigarettes and a lighter when you can get your nicotine fix via NJOY e-cigarettes? There’s something about well-chosen little things that pack a lot of punch.

Two seasons ago, my friend Jason Wu gifted me with my very own Daphne Bag in a rich, cherry red color. It’s become one of my favorite and most practical bags. I really love how you can turn this shoulder bag into a really elegant clutch by just tucking in the straps. It’s very roomy and the leather is oh so buttery soft and smooth. Despite its compact size, it fits all my essentials. How chic is this version, in pastel mint?
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.

Avenue Montaigne, I love you so much. I could spend the entire afternoon mincing around the area. It’s all about Marni and Montaigne Market, followed by a late lunch at L’Avenue and a quick run-through of all the new things at Celine and finally, go off the beaten path by visiting Balenciaga and Givenchy. Don’t you just wish life was this easy? Oh to dream… I suppose Avenue Montaigne is best at small doses. That’s what luxury is all about. Just a teeny, tiny, scoopful. It loses its value if you serve too much…
