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.
