All Aboard The Brooklyn-Bound Christian Dior Ferry

09/05/2014, Celebrity Gossip, Christian Dior, Current Affairs, Events, Fashion and Style, Rihanna

Ladies and gentlemen, the next Brooklyn-bound Dior Ferry will arrive in 2 minutes. The next stop is Brooklyn Navy Yard. Please mind the gap between yourself and the models.

I texted my friend Jane, Glamour Magazine’s new Fashion News Director at 2PM: “Let’s meet at 6:15PM, 35th street pier, if you can. I want to be there early.” We both decided to take the logo-emblazoned chartered ferry (complete with all-white seat covers and cocktails served) to Brooklyn Navy Yard, the venue of yesterday evening’s Christian Dior 2015 cruise fashion show. As we got out of our cars, an army of handsome all-American male model ushers greeted us. They looked cute in double-breasted navy blazers, some dressed in complete sailor ensembles with the Dior insignia patch. I had a hard time stopping myself from using the guys as a backdrop for an instagram shot. A staggering amount of magazine editors, as well as a slew of impeccably-dressed, Dior-clad clients ditched their cars and took that ferry ride with us. I guess people are traumatized (and smarter) from their experience after that major Alexander Wang show in February.

Christian Dior Cruise 2015 Collection

08/05/2014, Christian Dior, Fashion and Style, Resort 2015

One doesn’t need a magnifying glass or a pair of prescription glasses to see how crystal clear and precise Raf’s vision is. Christian Dior cruise 2015 was mostly inspired by scarves. It was all right in front of you — angular hemlines, usage of folds, subtle geometric cuts and pattern play. Some of my favourite looks from the very modern collection include the very light, yellow, orange and olive green embroidered organza scarf dresses, the embroidered and printed floral cotton dress worn on top of a black and white silk skirt, the floral-printed, waist-cinching silk basques and of course, the multi-colored tweed (woven so fine and tight) coat with the fringed hem. I also loved the sporty chic silk scarf sandals that was used sparingly throughout the show. J’adore!

Everyone Was There

07/05/2014, Celebrity Gossip, Events, Fashion and Style

“I have NOT seen you in a year,” the formidable Naomi exclaimed when I greeted her after she walked in with Riccardo Tisci. Monday night was one big blur. A few things I remember happening from that night: dancing with the very pint-size and pretty Reese Witherspoon, admiring Lupita Nyong’o’s dress (looked amazing in real life), stroking Olivier Rousteing’s bare chest, Rihanna coming up to me and shamelessly asking her for a ciggie on the dancefloor (her bodyguard opened a fresh pack from his pocket and lit it for me), sitting on Riccardo’s lap, Anne Hathaway introducing herself to me “Hi, I’m Anne” while I cozied up with Jason Wu and Diane Kruger. Everyone was there. I can’t even! I didn’t wanna be the loser who took photos left, right and center so after a few photos, I kept my phone firmly in my pocket and enjoyed the night.

Aristocrazy Headquarters Madrid

01/05/2014, Aristocrazy, Current Affairs, Givenchy, Jewelry, Madrid

The very wise Anna Dello Russo once proclaimed, “gold, gold, gold, gold, it’s all about gold, excess! Nothing succeeds like excess!” And she’s right. I know I’ve been obsessing over white garments and accessories lately but we all know my roots are firmly planted in the land of all things shiny and excessive. I love a good bling! I visited the Aristocrazy headquarters in Madrid not too long ago and played with several pieces from their latest collection.

Jason Wu Laser-cut Leather Clutch

29/04/2014, Accessories, Fashion and Style, Handbags, Jason Wu, Spring Summer 2014

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.

I first met Brooke Candy over dinner in Venice the night before she performed at the Diesel fashion fashion. She briefly went to me (around 1:00) during her performance and I was glad to cheer her on.

X Marks The Spot

23/04/2014, Alexander Wang, Barbara Bui, Current Affairs, Dubai, Theory

Y’all know me and my taste — I usually love anything AND everything colourful and embellished but lately, I’ve been toning it down big time. I’ve been stockpiling a rather disturbing amount of white items in my closet over the past few months. My obsession started last year but now it’s gone full force. It’s mildly disturbing actually. Whenever I go to stores, I usually make a beeline to the white section if they have it. Before leaving for Dubai, I bought this nifty “X” Alexander Wang sweater. I feel like there’s something chic about white clothes. It makes you look clean, pristine and of course, effortless. Yes, I know the white memo arrived late in my inbox, in any case, I’m loving this ‘new’ look on me.
