Gisele. GISELE! The term “supermodel” does get thrown around loosely but IMO, Gisele Bundchen, aka “GB”, aka “Number One”, is the last supermodel in my books. I had the pleasure of working with the most beautiful woman in the world for two days last week and boy oh boy, this one is for the books.
As y’all know, I extended in Paris for a few days after fashion week. One day, I got an email from my beloved agent to go to a casting. Nine years of blogging and I’ve never gone to a casting before so naturally I was nervous. I’m no model. I didn’t know what to expect! But, like a trooper, I showed up right on the dot, answered a few questions in front of a camera and within three minutes, done and done. A week later, I got called in to take part in a two-day shoot. I was on set for sixteen hours on the first day.
Trust me, I wish I could tell you all about it. I’m bound to keep my silence until it comes out. NEXT YEAR. For now, why don’t you enjoy Gisele’s supremacy and ferociousness, courtesy of this old Vogue Italia video…
Gisele is EVERYTHING!!!!!
My friends at Valentino recently sent me what I think is the ultimate must-have this season — the “My Own Code” bag. It’s a lovely clutch with a foldover clutch and a handle. What makes the bag extra chic is the fact that you can have your initials stamped on the handle — available at select Valentino boutiques worldwide. I’m all about personalization. In this day and age of everyone can pretty much get anything, having something monogrammed with your initials is what makes it truly and only yours.
