Its been a crazy, busy week, month, fall....
Head spinning like a dream. Still just a little girl from Virginia taking it all in. Carine Roitfeld, my fashion heroine and real woman of all time looked amazing @ the MOCA gala, not surprisingly. Ridley Scott--so cool to talk to. Gore Vidal?! Brad & Angie is all most of the press have talked about..... To me, most exciting is that everyone came to support my favorite Los Angeles museum. The cultural renaissance of LA is growing strong! Larry Gagosian won the pretty in pink Steinway piano painted by Damien Hirst with beautiful butterflies for a cool $450,000.
Growing up as a ballerina, it was a beautiful thing to see the Bolshoi ballet (who almost didn't make it thanks to our American red tape).
Francesco Vezzoli had a hand in EVERY detail of the evening down to the table decor and settings. I love his point of view...It is the concept to utmost attention to detail which truly sets the artist apart.
That week was a whirlwind of Nadine Johnson helmed events and I haven't caught up to myself since. At the Prada party to launch Miuccia's new book, they transformed the entire store into a library. No merchandise....Absolutley fantastic with Ms. Prada there holding court wearing the most lovely genuine smile. The next day was the 30th Anniversary of MOCA Gala fundraiser and the afterparty at the enoromous new Prism gallery hosted by Jeff Koons, Ed Ruscha, a very pretty pregnant Dasha Zhukova and POP magazine amongst others.

Most beautiful and sincerest of thanks to Karyn Kohl and Adam Gross and Jennifer Arcenaux from MOCA!
