Yesterday, I went to High Line to to kick-off the summer at the 3rd Annual “Summer Party on the High Line” presented by Coach. 100% of the proceeds from the ticketed event went to the maintenance and operations of the High Line.
If you remember, last year I was Coach’s guest and I’m so happy to be invited back again this year. About 800 VIP guests gathered on the High Line which was transformed into a vintage inspired Carnival featuring fortune tellers, jugglers, magicians, a dunk tank and best of all an amazing sunset backdrop. You can also play carnival games and win prizes from Coach. Oh and I got to see Katie Holmes, how fun! I’m a big fan of carnivals and I had an amazing time, Thanks COACH!
This past weekend I was in Miami for Lil Wayne’s kick-off party for his new footwear company, SPECTRE by SUPRA. At the event BJ Betts was giving free tattoos to guests and at the end of the night Lil Wayne tatted BJ Betts with his signature. The event was packed with friends and guests to celebrate the award-winning artist’s latest footwear venture. Some of the guests included Bun B, skaters Chaz Ortiz, Stevie Williams and Chad Muska, etc. Lil Wayne showed up rockin’ his new Chimera mid top, the first shoe from SPECTRE by SUPRA (release date May 18th). To top off an evening of unexpected moments Lil Wayne announced that Chaz Ortiz would be riding for SPECTRE. Fun times!
For the fifth year, I was honored to be invited by Coty to be their guest at the 7th annual Coty-Delete Blood Cancer/DKMS Gala (note change of name). The gala was held at Cipriani Wall Street, and was hosted by TV personality and celebrity designer Nate Berkus and co-Founder of Delete Blood Cancer, Katharina Harf, with special live performances by Grammy Award–winning artists Jill Scott and Lady Antebellum. Celebrity and designer guests included Katy Perry, Anja Rubik, Coco Rocha, Georgia May Jagger, Vera Wang, amongst others.
It was a magical night, especially when the donor meets the person whom he/she saved for the first time, it brought tears to many eyes. Definitely an unselfish act, very emotional. And how gorgeous was the atmosphere, the stage setup was so amazing especially when the light changes!

Last Thursday, Opening Ceremony and American Express invited me to an exclusive preview and shopping event at Opening Ceremony’s four-story flagship store in New York. At the event OC’s co-founder, Carol Lim talked about her inspiration and design process for the Fall/Winter 2013 collection. Guests were also able to pre-order FW13 pieces as well as get a special 20% discount off to American Express Cardmembers for all items in the store (excluding the FW13 collection).
I love the women’s FW13 collection, inspired by the City of Sin – Las Vegas, the collection channels the radiant Strip and its high-energy decadence through opulent fabrics, such as lush furs and satins, exuberant embellishments and eye-catching graphic prints. The color palette includes jewel tones of crimson, bordeaux, indigo, plum and crystal blue. If you didn’t attend the event, be sure to check out the collection at Opening Ceremony and select retailers beginning in August 2013.
American Express made this event possible. Opening Ceremony is part of a program at American Express where they celebrate Cardmembers and their sources of inspiration and follow the creative process.
