Respect. Queen Bey served it.
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.

It’s 5AM here in New York City and I couldn’t sleep. I can’t decide whether it’s the jet lag from my recent trip to Seoul or the fact that I’m trying to get caught up with all my work deliverables. I find it amusing how I constantly talk about “work” blah blah blah… yet at the same time, a huge bulk of it isn’t visible on a computer screen. Ah well. I guess what happens behind-the-scenes is for my personal pleasure only.
I always think of the beach whenever I get stressed. What about you? I think I need a proper beach holiday. The idea of spending a week in a remote island with blue skies, crystal-clear waters, gorgeous sand, no internet access or cellphone signal sounds sooo heavenly right now.

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!

안녕하세요! Anyeong haseyo! Hello my dearest readers. I’m currently in Seoul, South Korea for a television project. I can’t share the details for now but you’ll find out in March when it airs. I’ve always wanted to go to Seoul for years but never really had the opportunity to do so until now. My mom (god bless her) is a huge fan of Korean soaps. She’s just as excited as I am that I’m here. I love this city so much! It’s one of my favourite Asian cities — the food, the shopping, my gosh, I don’t even know where to begin. I’ll update you guys later. I’m late for my haircut. I love you all!
Here’s the full-length video of the fall/winter 2013 Valentino menswear fashion show. It’s one of my favourite collections for fall this year. Obsessed with the capes and the outerwear. Luxe, luxe, luxe to the next level!
