Nina Ricci and Rodarte Fall 2009 Shoes

The glorious folks over at New York magazine sent “real” women to test-drive some of the finest fall/winter 2009 footwear down the streets of Manhattan. Watch this video.

I’m begging you — I need, need, need, desperately need, those Nina Ricci and Rodarte shoes NOW! Is there any stylist out there who can hook me up with those? Please? Please, pretty please, with sugar sprinkles on top? I’m a size 40 — model size — just for your information.

Thank you.

President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo's $20,000 Dinner at Le Cirque

And I thought it was only $15k — that's what my Filipino friend in New York told me the other day. This, my fellow Filipino taxpayers, is where the pesoses go. From NY Post's Page Six:

The economic downturn hasn't persuaded everyone to pinch pennies. Philippines President Maria Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was at Le Cirque the other night with a large entourage enjoying the good life, even though the former comptroller of her country's armed services, Carlos Garcia, was found guilty earlier this year of perjury and two of his sons were arrested in the US on bulk cash-smuggling charges. Macapagal-Arroyo ordered several bottles of very expensive wine, pushing the dinner tab up to $20,000.

How time flies fast eh? I spoke to the lovely Michael Angel (who will officially open the New York womenswear collections next month) on skype last night and he indulged me with a quick preview of his Spring 2010 looks.

Michael Angel

He really matured as a designer in spite of him only showing in New York for a few seasons. I think it’s his best collection to date. Sophisticated, well-cut pieces and mind-blowing, colourful prints — potent combination to start NY fashion week with a bang! I took some screenshots but alas, they’re for my personal enjoyment only.

Shoelovers of the world, you’re gonna die when you see his shoes. He collaborated with a prestigious, blue-chip footwear institution. My lip are sealed on this one!
