A large-scale life

"We want to create works of art of joy and beauty, which we will build because we believe it will be beautiful. The only way to see it is to build it."
- Jeanne-Claude, 1935 - 2009

Well just come right out and say it, then

WWD: Do you have a motto?
KM: There are loads. There’s “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” That’s one of them. You try and remember, but it never works.

Nothing's right, I'm TORN!

Our beloved Daphne Guinness (in McQueen s/s'10) took things from crazy fabulous to just plain crazy at last night's party for NARS. I mean, if anyone... it's her, but I'm a little scared!

Puttin' in work

Whatever do you mean, you don't wear Balmain to work?

You're dreaming.

The Collector

This is Shala Monroque, jetsetting fashionista and girlfriend of a world-renowned New York gallerist. I'm not sure if she really works, other than as a contributor to her friend Dasha Zhukova's POP magazine, for which she and her man hosted one of NY Fashion Week's most exclusive soirees in honor of Tavi. Regardless, she's gorgeous and fabulous and bounces around the world collecting contemporary art, enviable fashion, and best of all, priceless experiences (see her above in Doha). Her blog for POP is really worth your time.

I welcomed her to a work event once, and she barely said hello -- but she looked dreadfully chic, inappropriately dressed in skintight jeans, sky high heels and a shrunken black leather motorcycle jacket.

Some lives need no dress code.

Youth and beauty, man... that's the ticket

The gorgeous, talented, effervescent Daveigh Chase.

Can we talk about me for une moment?

Okay, good.

Soixante est fabuleux!

My dear friend Ms. Wintour turned a very youthful and fabulous 60 years of age yesterday!

Best wishes, dearest!

(I couldn't help but notice nobody here bothered to wish me a happy 60 last month...)
