Me and Margherita Missoni walking down Sixth Avenue in New York City on March 14th, 2008. This was a fun night, but a sad one: It was Margherita’s last night in New York before she moved back to Europe. I still miss her, but she visits often.
Dasha Zhukova at the opening of the Center for Contemporary Culture in Moscow (also known as the Garage) in Moscow on June 12th, 2008. This was the museum’s grand opening, which was just as fabulous as she is beautiful.

Halloween isn’t my favorite holiday. Too much traffic, too much pressure to whip up a good costume, and the stingy Midwesterner in me has a moral obligation to spending a bunch of money on a costume just for one night. But, all that said, I try and make the best of it. And a few cocktails never hurt anybody, even if I am dressed up like an Indian prince (or princess, considering how much I love a smokey eye) or a player from (this year’s World Series Champion) St. Louis Cardinals. I also managed to celebrate the (non) holiday in two cities: two nights in LA, and one night in New York. The first picture is of Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz, Bazaar’s Glenda Bailey and me at the V party in New York; the second picture is of Ali Larter and Francisco Costa in LA, where the third picture of Emma Roberts and Paris Hilton was taken. Click through for another picture of Paris; me with Nicole Richie; Terry Richardson with V’s Stephen Gan and Andrew Richardson; Kelly Sawyer, Katherine Power and Simone Harouche; Brandon Davis and Barron Hilton; Philip Lim and Richard Chai; and finally, me with my beloved supermodel-in-the-making Joan Smalls.
Me with my Dad at a café near the Georgia O’Keefe Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico, on May 24th, 2008. My dad talked me into this vacation because he was talked into visiting one of those timeshares in Arizona that they try and sell retired people. He knew it was a scam, but we went anyway and tried to scam them back on the buffets.
