LIFE via INSTAGRAM - February 10th to 13th, 2013

In this installment of Life via Instagram I struggle to balance NYFW with some heavy media promotion for The Face. I start out at DVF,  go on VH1 with Nigel and then a radio tour with Karolina. The Face mentors and coaches ring the NASDAQ bell and finally I wrap up Fashion Week by taking my Team Coco girl Stephanie Lalanne to her first runway show, Rachel Zoe.

DINNER WITH GAULTIER - via Instagram.
March 17th, 2012 

Last night my dear friend Jean Paul Gaultier asked me if I would join him at a gala for Lycee Francais de New York (literally meaning: The French School of New York). At the event I bumped into Linda Evangelista (her son goes to the school), who told me she was wearing my look from Jean Paul’s S/S 2012 runway show. I was thrilled she even knew who I was, let alone what I wore 2 seasons back! Linda gave a lovely speech and handed Gaultier, the guest of honor, an award from the school. I had an absolutely lovely time and sat with the amazing Hannelore Knuts and Jean Paul Gaultier - we all made a pact to join next season’s ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ though Jean Paul sadly backed out at the very last minute. 

  1. Wearing Jean Paul Gaultier and heading to Les Années Folles where my dear Mr. Gaultier is being honored!
  2. Look who came to pick me up!
  3. This is a lovely moment - Jean Paul Gaultier chatting with Bill Cunningham.
