Arrivederci Milano et Bonjour Paris! It’s so nice to be back in Paris once again for the final stretch of fashion month. I wasn’t in my best form in Milan — I was sick for the entire week. I can’t believe I still went to the shows in spite of me having a flu. I was a germ carrier. My oh my, I’ll never forget sitting there, sweating my butt off from all the hot flashes I had because of all the pharmaceuticals I took. I’m starting to feel much better now (oh look, I’m holding a ciggie!) but it doesn’t help that Paris is cold and rainy. Ah well. Summer is officially over.

Fun times are always guaranteed whenever I’m with my friends Kyle and Simon. Simon, who is a male model, also makes chic accessories by hand (SIMONN by Simon Nygard) in his spare time. He gave me a white feather necklace, which I’ll post on my blog in the next few days. Kyle, on the other hand, was very excited about his recent acquisition — a shark’s tooth necklace from Givenchy.
Hello my dearest readers! I’m currently in Prague waiting for my connecting flight to see the boyfriend. A few hours after the Miu Miu show yesterday afternoon, I ended Paris Fashion Week fashion month this season with a drink at the now infamous La Perle bar at the Marais.
Hope things go back to normal. I’m all fashed out!!!
Thought I'd take a break from the full-on fur looks, tone myself down a bit and wear earthy colours at the shows today. My friend Andy from StyleScrapbook took these shots after exiting the Lanvin show.

As you know, it’s been a crazy fashion month. Come to think of it, I only did three cities this time around (New York, Milan and Paris). Hopefully I’ll do London next season. Here are some photos from the ‘Front Row‘ sections of Style.com/Style.it (the Italian version of Style.com). This entry was inspired by the entry I did during the fall/winter 2010 shows.
Mademoiselle Agnès Paris Restaurant Recommendation
I'm sure you're familiar of Mademoiselle Agnès. In my opinion, she's the best woman coming out of French television. I'm a big fan of her work and her sense of humor. Mademoiselle Agnès andlegendary fashion documentarymaker Loïc Prigent filmed me in Paris.
We had a chat after the Valentino show and because I didn't have a pen and paper at the time, I used my camera to take note of her restaurant recommendation: Thoumieux.
Speaking of Valentino, omg, Mademoiselle Agnès had a really funny idea before the show. She wanted to find a French intern for me so we both trolled faces on the front row. She then approached the super chic Virginie Mouzat and asked her if she's willing to intern for me. It was hysterical! Virginie then replied by saying I should work for her not the other way around. My oh my. I wonder what the footage looks like on cam.
Wherever I go, I do my best to live by this question: when was the last time you did something for the first time?
The Paris collections are in full swing and in between shows, I added another "first". The very kind folks of i-D Magazine, Terry & Tricia Jones, invited me to have lunch with Edward Enninful. I've always wanted to meet him as I'm a total fan of his work — for i-D, for American & Italian Vogue, for Lanvin, etc. He's one of the most talented and creative tastemakers and I have nothing but sheer admiration and respect for the man behind the inspirational images I've seen in fashion over the years.

Thank you to the Joneses and to Edward for your kindness. It's such an honor to be in your presence.
