As I walked the stairs into Rose's Bakery, I saw the back side of a very elegant woman. I said to myself, 'Damn, those Londoners are chic'. But as the woman turned around, I realized it was Uber French Stylist and ex Vogue Editor, Carine Roitfeld. I decided to buy her book, IRREVERENT which is like a scrape book filled with personal and professional photos from her career in the fashion world. Ms Roitfeld was so generous and warm with every fan waiting to have their booked signed by her, moi included. And no, she did not remember meeting me at Fred Segal's cafe in Los Angeles in 2006. And did she remember introducing Sofia Coppola to my husband at Karl Lagerfeld's party for Baz Luhrman's Chanel 5 commercial? No, Ms Roitfeld could not recollect that either....Moi, je n'ai pas jamais oublie!

Olympia Le Tan decided to show her latest collection of hand made embroidered bags, "Still Ill" at the Musee de la Histoire de la Medicine.
Hidden amongst skeleton frames and pre WW1 medicine paraphernalia, Le Tan's new 'It' bags were shining like jewels waiting to be discovered. Looking around the museum, all I could think was that we are all so lucky not to have to endure 18th Century medicine cures with all those scary tools.

Due to the gracious invitation from 303 Gallery in NYC, I was invited to the cocktail for the artist Karen Kilimnik then a night at the Ballet De L'Opera, PHEDRE choregraphed by Serge Lifar and PSYCHE choregraphed by Alexei Ratmansky. Karen Kilimnik's artwork was used in the set design for the PSYCHE ballet.
I found Kilimnik's art romantic yet haunting. It is rare when I feel drawn to an artist's sensitivity. I am curious to learn more about her short films and installations. But it is her dark awkward paintings that pull me into her world.

I know I am a little late with this. Here are a few photos of Avenue Montaigne for Fashion Night out. I was a bit disappointed with all the lines to get into the shops ( who needs that)

Last night, Claudia Schiffer, the German top model presented her first collection of knitwear at the Uber cool Colette's in Paris. Large cozy sweaters in cashmere that cry 'cocoon me' will serve well on damp Paris winter nights in front of the fire. Lucien Pages invited a whole crew of fashionistas to baptize the event. Carine Roitfeld, Suzy Menkes, Milla Jovovich with her family in tow all came together to support 'the Claudia'
