Who handled Project Blue’s PR? Barneys and Elle, anyone?

Earlier this morning, I read a tweet from Timothy Elliott, Men’s PR Director of Barneys New York, pointing his followers to a charity auction on eBay.

This ought to be interesting. How is it possible for a custom, one-off
Bottega Veneta dress end up fetching a paltry $306 at an auction?

Reflective Sunglasses (Agyness Deyn and Jack McCollough)

Reflective Sunglasses

Speaking of hideous “Duty-Free Spectacular Specials”, please don’t tell me this is the new trend in eyewear: reflective sunglasses

I first spotted it on Ms. Laura “Agyness Deyn” Hollins last month…

and earlier last week, I saw them on Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCollough after that whole Kiefer Sutherland head-butting saga. Here’s a pap photo of him wearing a pair of Oakley (shock horror) sunglasses.

I am begging y’all do not, under any circumstances, bite into this
reflective glasses trend or else — marc my words — a baby unicorn
will die somewhere.

Natalia Vodianova's Moscow on CNN My City My Life

Natalia Vodianova’s Moscow on CNN

After that adorable feature on Carine Roitfeld, CNN features another character from the fashion world. This time it’s Russian model Natalia Vodianova. Although she’s not necessarily my favourite model, I think it’s great (baby steps y’all) that an enormous international news organization is showing interest with some of fashion’s key players. I’m just disappointed that they don’t have a dedicated fashion or style-oriented show. I remember speaking to a journalist friend about this a few months back and it seems that a lot of these networks still consider fashion as “fluff” when it reality, the fashion industry generates billions and billions of dollars of revenue and employ tens of, if not, millions of people around the world. Ah well. Enough rambling from me. Watch Natalia give a quick tour of one of my favourite cities in the world. Moscow. Russia silly, not Idaho.

Part 2 after the jump.

Optical Shop

Optical Shop

I have poor eyesight. I don’t wear glasses often because I’m near-sighted. It’s such a bitch to wear specs. After all these years, I still have only one pair of eyeglasses. I guess this is why I always fail every time I play ‘spot the cutie’ with people because I all I see are walking Monets; cute from afar but up close, well… whatevs. I also don’t like wearing contacts either because they are troublesome. The thought of putting foreign objects in my eyes is enough to send chills down my spine. Remember those crazy “tiger eye” contacts that were all the rage back in the 90s? Well, I had a traumatising experience with those so never again.

I recently went to the optical shop.
