Carine is back!

After being lost in London for a good hour looking for Dover Street Market, I finally found what I was looking for....

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!

Frieze me baby...

 More beautiful and bizarre images of Frieze.

Frieze Art Fair 2011

My friend scored two Preview tickets for the Frieze Art Fair in London. This was such a treat since during the preview days the fair  is hardly full thus the 'art' experience is less claustaphobic.  The 303 Gallery from NYC had special Karen Kilimnik  images for me to drool over. I think they may be a bit out of our budget but at least I have something to dream about....

A day at the Doctor's

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.

Martine Sitbon's Floating Models

I went to the RUE DU MAIL fashion show with my  husband in tow. We were all wilting in the  Parisian heatwave while watching the beautiful RDM creations float past us.
