Happy Birthday to me!
Many thanks to all of you who sent me greetings and birthday wishes over the past few days. Today is actually my birthday. But yes, it's nice and very sweet of y'all to include me in your thoughts.
Here's to a healthier, happier and more prosperous 2009-2010!
Loïc Prigent: “Yeah, at last, some sex!”
Yes please. OUI S’IL VOUS PLAIT. I have a new crush and his name is Loïc Prigent.
Many of you will remember him as the one who made Signé Chanel and the Marc Jacobs/Louis Vuitton documentary.
YES, my dear readers, it’s true. Marc and Lorenzo are engaged. Marc’s in Brazil now and he’s meeting his mother-in-law in a few hours. I have no idea what time it is over there but it must be early in the morning.

Jeanne Beker, Fashion Television
Before FTV (as in "I love FTVDOTCOM"), they had Elsa Klensch. Remember her? I don't know about you but I used to piss my pants whenever her show came on CNN when I was very young. Ditto with MTV's House of Style with Amber Valetta and Shalom Harlow. I also grew up watching Behind the Velvet Ropes with Lauren Ezersky. God I love that woman. I must have been what, twelve years old and thinking, "who is this outrageous and flamboyant rich Jewish lady with salt & pepper hair? I wanna be like that when I grow up!" All she did was go to fashion shows, showrooms, studios and interview designers (whatever happened to Zang Toi). At the end of her show, she'd pop a bottle of Moet & Chandon champagne. What about Tim Blanks? Years and years before he got his Style.com gig, I used to watch old re-runs of Fashion File in third world cable TV thinking wow, just wow.
Then of course, there's the highly-respected Jeanne Beker (Fashion Television) who I truly admire.
