Lauren Santo Domingo, Proenza Schouler’s Lazaro Hernandez, Vogue’s Hamish Bowles and Tabitha Simmons at the Carlyle Hotel after the Council of Fashion Designers of America awards on June 3rd, 2008. These are the sorts of creative types that make the fashion industries one of the best businesses in the world.
The lovely lass Alexa Chung celebrated her birthday last night at a karaoke bar. It’s a pretty safe bet that after my mic-hogging performance of both the female and male parts of the Grease medley I will not be invited back to any of her music-themed festivites.

Leigh Lezark and Joy Bryant at Santo’s Party House in New York City on June 7th, 2008. This picture was taken mere moments before we got into the sort of ice cube fights only club rats encounter at clubs. Not my shining moment.
“A lady purchases things she loves, not what’s trendy or expensive.”

My dog, Monster, when he was still a puppy, at my apartment on West Broadway on March 15th, 2007. (It was a hideous, grotesque apartment that I’m so happy to have moved out of, but Monster is still the cutest thing in the world.)
“A lady has a strong, firm handshake. Even if she’s a princess, or dresses like one or acts like one, a good grip is a must.”

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.
