NY Fashion Week FW10

So New York fashion week FW 2010 has kicked off and no you won't be seeing me. It's the first one I've missed since I started backstage but, I'm sorry, I can't imagine adding three feet of snow to an already crazy-busy stressful week.

So, in lieu of posting a pic of me laying in the sun on the beach down here in Miami, I'm giving you a shot from two of my favorite sweeties- Abbey Lee Kershaw and Kasia Struss (from one of their many fittings) who are just two of the many girls who have said they will send pics down throughout the week (we'll see how long that lasts.)

Miss all of you and hope you're staying warm!

Lee McQueen 1969-2010

Like everyone, I too was shocked and saddened yesterday morning to learn of the tragic and sudden death of the designer and artist Lee McQueen. I found out on my way out the door and wasn't able to watch the news unfold throughout the day, so it wasn't until late last-night, in bed with my laptop, I was able to take it in and hear all the lovely tributes pour in from around the world from those who knew and admired his work.

Calling him simply a "genius," or a "visionary," or even "fashion's brightest star," seems almost cliche in light of all he did and meant to the world and fashion, but the truth is, he was all of those things. And so much more.


There is not enough that can be said about Lee Alexander McQueen. Except that there has never been and will never be another like him.

The Red Carpet Issue

There's an amazing documentary running on the Sundance Channel (which has suddenly gotten all fashiony) that discusses the relationship between fashion and the red carpet. The Red Carpet Issue features interviews with some of the biggest players from Paris to NY to LA and captures amazing footage with firsthand accounts from those who's work directly impacts both worlds.

Click here to learn more and a list of future show times. And shout out's to my girls Mr. Mickey and the lovely and talented Mary Alice Stephenson, who appear throughout.

From Rio with Love

While all you NY'ers were freezing your twats off over the weekend, and I was here avoiding all the Superbowl trash, my buddy Mitchell Healey was in Rio taking this beautiful photo. I love it!

Betty White for SNL

Has everyone joined the "Betty White to host SNL (please?)!" page on Facebook? Last week a friend sent it to me and when I joined there were about 20,000 members and it's now up to 80. Glad to see I'm not the only Betty White fan. And I'm sorry, Betty White on SNL is a no brainer.

How To

The new VMAN is a "How To" issue and I love this cute little story by Hedi Slimane and Nicola Formichetti. It's called "How to dress like your hero" and it stars two new faces Colter Johnson and River Vilperi, both with Major.

PAR-TAY

So I popped over to the Mondrian Friday night for Wilhelmina Miami's big season-blowout, and lemme tell ya, the kids were givin it! SO much fun. In fact, I had such a good time I couldn't even make it to the second (late-night) half of the evening which was over at Liv at the Fontainebleau Hotel, and apparently went late into the night.

Brooke Hogan was there and is very sweet, however, has NO gaydar whatsoever. Explaining to her who was there for more than to find out who she was wearing, and who was not, made my night. Matthew Coatsworth and Myles Pimental showed up so I threw 'em all together and grabbed a shot. The whole night was a total blast! Thanks Willy! Pics up on Facebook.
