Gigi walking Balmain today.
Fashion. Ahhh, fashion. Sorry, but I have a lot to say about this…
I have a little secret. When I was living in New York in 2010/2011 I lived in a fabulous apartment building on the Upper East Side. We called it Paris in New York. My upstairs neighbor happened to be Fern Mallis. Madame Mallis was the Executive Director of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) and created New York Fashion Week. In the fashion world, it was basically the equivalent of having Anna Wintour of Vogue living above me. Every day, Madame Mallis’ Women’s Wear Daily newspaper would arrive at 6 AM. I would walk my dog at approximately 7 AM, grab her newspaper, walk to Central Park, sit on a bench sipping my coffee and I would read her entire Women’s Wear Daily. I would do so ever so gingerly without spilling my coffee on it and then I would ever so carefully refold the newspaper, walk home, and plant it back on its exact spot in the lobby of our building on the black Chinoiserie table. Shhh,… Don’t tell.
My take on fashion is basic. I don’t want to look stupid. I don’t do trends. I don’t want to look like a clown. I like the classics with a little bit of edge thrown in. I appreciate tailoring. I know what colors look good on me and yellow is not it. I don’t like flash. Sexy is good, whore is not. I do not follow fads. I like femininity with a hint of masculine.
