Bridget Foley’s Diary: And the Oscar Woes To…

Hollywood can’t get out of its own way.
This week’s news that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will add a most popular movie Oscar not only sent civilian social media into conniptions, but also the Hollywood press and Oscar voters. Reaction was immediate and one-sided, mostly variations on, “what the heck were they thinking?”
Getting less attention, but as important, is the decision that, in the interest of keeping the broadcast to a viewer-friendly three hours, some awards will be presented during commercials, with winners getting their few seconds of fame via edited snippets as at the Tony Awards. That move speaks to an identity dilemma: Is the Oscars’ primary function the acknowledgment of achievement or entertainment? In a perfect world, the two would beautifully coexist, but the world is far from perfect, and Hollywood is hardly a nonprofit enterprise.

Still, it takes a village to make a movie. It’s sad that the organizers of this mega event, supposedly creative thinkers, can’t conjure a better way to reverse the ratings bleed (down 19 percent last year), than to de-emphasize the essential contributions of off-the-radar types. Before the new Popular Oscar gets added, there are 24 awards, which sound

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Ivanka, Darwin and Those Darned Market Forces

Ivanka Trump Inc., the merch brand, is over. Ivanka Trump, the woman, continues to command interest, at least as indicated by the press attention she’s garnered since Tuesday, when she announced the shuttering of her company.
Once upon a time, endless coverage and commentary were a good thing — a way of keeping various celebrities in the public eye, their foibles only making them seem more human, like the rest of us. Not any longer. Today, the omnipresence of social media, not only as used by extremists of all stripes, but by thoughtful people determined to function as unofficial watchdogs to those in the public eye, make it harder for bold-faced types to skirt accountability for actions perceived as problematic by significant segments of the population.
Trump is not a self-made person, but one born to having it all. It’s to her credit that from a young age she set out to achieve, and if she did so in part on the strength of the family name and access, so what? So have other accomplished people as diverse as Chelsea Clinton to a generation of the Kardashian-Jenners. Something of an anti-Kardashian (once her teen modeling aspirations passed), Trump didn’t aim for overt look-based

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Sunday, a Day of Dress

Remember the 40-hour work week? Even if you don’t, you’ve probably heard of it. Much of the employed world has left it far behind, and much of the world’s employed now take an approach somewhere between philosophical and pragmatic — whatever it takes to get the job done; constant connectivity has won; lucky to have a job.
All of the above duly considered and acknowledged as legitimate, fashion nevertheless seems extreme in its can-do/will-do gusto. Case in point: this Sunday’s official lineup of CFDA-sanctioned presentations and shows. The Fashion Calendar lists three: Lorod, from 2 to 3 p.m.; Victor Glemaud, from 4 to 6 p.m., and Alexander Wang, at 8 p.m.
In the big picture of a world in turmoil, a random working Sunday may seem a small matter, and as a societal class, show-going fashion employees make poor victims. But given the reality of this industry — the 24/7 relentlessness of the primary show schedule; the parameters of this endless, whatever-it-is-we’re-in-now season that began in early May and will carry on at least through July couture week, encompassing clothes characterized as fall, resort/cruise and spring — was it essential for the CFDA to add a summer Sunday to the schedule? A perusal

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Don’t Ask, Just Sell

‘Leadership, social consciousness, corporate vision. One could spend eons pondering their components. What wouldn’t cross the frontal lobe: burying one’s head in the sand in the face of uncomfortable questions.
Yet that, it seems, is the retail way, at least across broad swaths of the industry. In preparing a piece on the current state of the fur industry, published last Thursday, WWD approached 22 retailers around the world for their points of view. Only nine were willing to address the subject. Subtracting out the fur-free contingent, that number fell to four.
Those out of the fur business: YNAP, David Jones and Myer, by choice, and Maxfield and Fred Segal, by West Hollywood municipal mandate. Chief executive officer Allison Samek noted that Fred Segal has expanded the fur-free ethos to its other outlets as well. Dropping fur, everything from handbag charms to trimmed parkas to major outerwear, is a huge move. Whatever each organization’s specific arrival process, it must have also been a tough one that involved some loss of business. Yet all made and are at peace with their decisions. For those who sell fur, the topic is more challenging to discuss. Holt Renfrew president Mario Grauso and Matchesfashion ceo Ulric Jerome

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Fall 2018 — A Look Back

It seems forever ago, but it wasn’t. As it was happening and now, with hindsight of less than three weeks, fall 2018 resonates as a transitional season — a bellwether of changes essential to what has become an oversaturated and too-often underwhelming show circuit. Then again, one could say that about the past few years of runway seasons, and yet the changes don’t happen, and the shows go one. Happily, every season has its high points and its oddities.
Your Head in Your Hands — We’ve all heard the expression, but whoever expected to see it for real? Gucci’s show-opener, model Unia Pakhomova carrying her own head (for accuracy’s sake, it was a fake), proved the defining visual of the fall 2018 season. Presented within a brightly lit, antiseptic operating room installation, the show was compelling, confounding, weird and wonderful. In a post-show press conference, Alessandro Michele talked about being “post-human” and your own Dr. Frankenstein and parenting dragons — all whimsically heady stuff. Yet the best thing about what Michele is doing right now is that the clothes stand up to the shtick. To walk into a Gucci store is to come upon a retail derivation completely faithful to the promise of the

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Ronan’s Right (Again): Thank You, David Remnick

Ronan Farrow is grateful to David Remnick. He shouldn’t be alone. All who believe that traditional journalism must continue in its role as society’s guardian, holding the powerful accountable, should share Farrow’s gratitude to The New Yorker editor in chief.
This is not to downplay Farrow’s remarkable fortitude, guts and journalistic audacity in sticking to, and finding an outlet for, his brilliantly reported, real-life Harvey Weinstein horror story after it was passed on by NBC. (On Tuesday, Farrow got at least one write-in vote at the polls, for Manhattan district attorney, from yours truly, galled at the notion of Cyrus Vance Jr.’s unopposed candidacy. In his initial piece, Farrow reported that Vance could have charged Weinstein and didn’t, to the chagrin of some NYPD types.)
That Farrow jumped into the story and refused to let it die testifies to his belief in his profession and his own mettle. “To not run this story would be a dereliction of my ethical duties,” he told CNN in one of his many television appearances since his original story broke. That, in a series of tweets on Tuesday, he addressed the reality — that he couldn’t have done it alone — speaks to his professional character.

Bridget Foley’s Diary Harvey Weinstein: Just Disgusting

Oh, Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna. Your words were not taken out of context. You spoke them into the camera, the entire gist there for the viewing. People who know you and your career and your four-plus decades of dedication to women’s empowerment find it hard to believe that you meant what you said, but you said it: “You look at everything all over the world today, you know, and how women are dressing and, you know, what they’re asking by just presenting themselves the way they do. What are they asking for? Trouble.”
Your comment implies solidarity with Harvey Weinstein’s “apologetic” view of his sleazebag activities: The culture made him do it. Yes, you released a clarifying statement, but that’s not enough. You’ve got to address this head-on, in conversation. I’d like it to be with WWD and me. But somewhere, with someone. Soon.

The greater issue, of course, is not about Donna Karan’s strange, out-of-character red-carpet comment. It is about vile behavior tolerated by various subcultures within the greater culture.

Bridget Foley’s Diary: When Should Ivanka Cry Uncle Over Dad?

Before the presidential campaign and election, Ivanka Trump self-identified and was perceived as a businesswoman passionate about women’s empowerment. You’d have been hard-pressed to hear someone speak negatively about her, with words such as lovely, hard-working, self-directed and genuine typical descriptives.

 
And then, Dad ran for president and won.
 
Throughout and after the election, and especially since her role in the Trump administration shifted from merely “daughter,” as she said she initially intended, to G-20 Summit-attending formal adviser, Ivanka has taken her hits, critics questioning not only her qualifications but also her motives and her silence in light of various presidential outbursts. Following President Trump’s shocking equal assignation last weekend of “blame on both sides” when white supremacists, many brandishing swastikas, stormed Charlottesville, Va., to protest the planned removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee, the criticism escalated exponentially, with many wondering, how could Ivanka not speak out? 
 
Whether or not she knew just what she was getting into in accepting her White House role, surely Ivanka knows her father, and she is accustomed to life in shared spotlights, his and her own. Though thrust into the former as a child when her parents’ public marital woes made for tabloid grist, she chose the latter early on. An adolescent flirtation with modeling crossed over to television; at 15,

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Vuitton, Koons, ‘Mona Lisa’ and the Changing Status of the Big-Brand Designer

Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Titian and “Mona Lisa” herself — coming soon, to a handbag near you, if you happen by the Champs-Élysées, 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, or any of the 150 Louis Vuitton outposts where the brand’s new, flashy Jeff-Koons-has-his-way-with-the-Masters collaboration will be housed beginning April 28.
In a big, splashy, celebrity-laden party at the Louvre on April 11, under the gaze of Mona herself, Vuitton formally presented Koons’ collection of handbags and small leather goods, which had been on full view on the brand’s web site throughout the day. In pictures, at least, the bags look amazing. They’re a lot of fun, a little outrageous and beautiful — if your idea of beauty veers somewhere between bucolic romp and steely eyed Leonardo da Vinci diva, and whose doesn’t? They’re all marked with a little bunny charm indicating, “Koons worked here.” As for the rights to the paintings, just like “Happy Birthday” and “Hamlet,” these masterpieces fall under public domain, including the 500-year-old “most famous painting in the world,” whose legally co-opted image graces everything from refrigerator magnets and T-shirts to endless artists’ homages and satires. Still, the cost of this enterprise to Vuitton is unimaginable — and its anticipated returns,

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Fashion in the Shadows

What a year! This issue is WWD’s annual distillation and evaluation of the year’s news. Typically, we compile candidates for Newsmaker and the Top Ten stories, winnowing submissions down to the final edit, often the result of intense debate.
This year in fashion — and out — was dominated by the presidential election that soared to an unprecedented level of ugly, creating rare unanimity for news supremacy. No matter how any U.S. news organization frames its year-end assessment, it will be driven in some way by the election drama that led to the stunning current employment status of President-elect Trump. That reality blindsided the entire fashion community, leaving its deep and vocal pro-Hillary contingent devastated. Here at WWD, we’ve focused not on the industry reaction per se, but on the greater cultural phenomena that created the upcoming Trump presidency, represented by The Angry American.
Fair enough. No fashion theme could compete with the cataclysmic upending of the traditional American political structure, and the parallel movements across the West in Britain, Italy and France. That explains our Newsmaker of the Year. As for our Top Ten stories, most are more acutely industry-centric, beginning with Number One, instant fashion. Could it have generated more

Turtle Diary (New York Review Books Classics)


Life in a city can be atomizing, isolating. And it certainly is for William G. and Neaera H., the strangers at the center of Russell Hoban’s surprisingly heartwarming novel Turtle Diary. William, a clerk at a used-book store, lives in a rooming house after a divorce that has left him without home or family. Neaera is a successful writer of children’s books, who, in her own estimation, “looks like the sort of spinster who doesn’t keep cats and is not a vegetarian. Looks.like a man’s woman who hasn’t got a man.” Entirely unknown to each other, they are both drawn to the turtle tank at the London zoo with “minds full of turtle thoughts,” wondering how the turtles might be freed. And then comes the day when Neaera walks into William’s bookstore, and together they form an unlikely partnership to make what seemed a crazy dream become a reality.

Bridget Foley’s Diary: New Work Order

Employment — it’s a changing world.
Two recent media stories suggest just how much it’s changing while a third indicates that a considerable portion of the potential workforce may be in for a rude awakening.
The cover feature of the July/August print issue of The Atlantic proclaims: “The End of Work” with the subhead, “Technology will soon erase millions of jobs. Could that be a good thing?”
Derek Thompson wrote a provocative “what if” based on what is — the ongoing replacement of human labor by technology. His analysis is a big-picture look at the greater societal ramifications of a trend certain to continue, focused on the United States: “Industriousness has served as America’s unofficial religion since its founding.…What might happen if work goes away?” Citing academic experts, he lays out and examines three schools of thought: an enlightened-leisure utopia dependent upon “the right government provisions”; a revival of the artisan spirit and, the most bleak, a “precariat” working class going from task to task.
The New York Times feature (Aug. 15) examining what it’s like to work at Amazon.com had the entire working world abuzz. According to the piece, “Inside Amazon: Wrestling Big Ideas in a Bruising Workplace,” by Jodi Kantor and David

Monsoon Diary

Monsoon Diary


MONSOON DIARY weaves a fascinating food narrative that combines authentic vegetarian recipes from South India with tales from Shoba Narayan’s life, stories of her delightfully eccentric family, and reflections on Indian culture. Shoba recounts her childhood in South India, a portrait of small-town life richly populated by characters like the flower woman who brings jasmine for the gods, the milkman who names his cows after his wives, and the iron-man who picks up red-hot coals with his bare hands. Food is so important to her family that when Shoba wins a scholarship to study in America, they only agree to let her go if she prepares a successful banquet. She returns home to an arranged marriage – to her surprise, the family have chosen well – and later there are visits from her many relatives, old and new, to her home in New York City. In MONSOON DIARY, Shoba Narayan’s culinary talent is matched by stories as varied as Indian spices – at times pungent, mellow, piquant and sweet. Her characters, like Shoba herself, have a thing or two to say about cooking and about life.

The Diary

The Diary


BECAUSE IT WAS A TRAGEDY THAT CAME AT THE END OF WORLD WAR TWO, the infamous Black March conducted by the German regime against Prisoners of War has been largely ignored by history. Nonetheless, during 87 torturous days in the blizzard-like, frozen days of winter 1945, beginning from Stalag IV in western Poland, 8,000 American and British airmen were forced to march as much as 40 miles a day across nothern Germany. They were not supplied with proper clothing, sanitation, water or food. Night after weary night they slept on the frozen ground in open fields or crowded into ramshakle barns. Those who died along the way were left behind on the side of the road – never with the dignity of a burial. Sergeant James B. Lindsay, of Kokomo, Indiana, was one of the survivors. Under the very noses of the German guards he maintained a daily diary of his experience. More than that, his miraculous fall from the sky when his 9 other crewmates perished in a mid-air collision is breathtakingly exciting. Then, to have survived that tragedy only to be betrayed by Italian farmers and sold into the hands of the Germans was the start of his thousand-mile journey to incarceration in Poland.

The Teenage Diary — The Original Blog

There are so many reasons I feel lucky to have grown up in the low-tech generation that was the late ’70s/early ’80s.

I love the fact that my music came from vinyl and cassette tapes and that the only thing I was able to do on my telephone was talk on it.

And blogging was done the old-fashioned way, handwritten in one of these relics:

2015-05-18-1431972749-17570-Diaries80s.JPG

I was a little fanatical about writing in my diary. I got my first (and still my favorite) Hello Kitty Friendly Diary when I was 7, and I talked to it like it was a person. A friend. A confidant.

But it’s the books from my pre-teen/teenage years that tell the best (and worst) stories — love, lust, passion, fashion, music… it’s all there in these volumes.

The books are like little time capsules; open them up and find much more than you ever could from staring at a computer screen. Feel the pages and feel the love (and angst) of childhood.

Here are five reasons I am so grateful that I never pitched these precious books.

1. Handwriting
Childhood scrawl and my big, bubbly handwriting take me screaming back to high school.

2. The Occasional Collage
Jason should feel pretty special that I’ve hung onto this homage to him since 1987.

2015-05-18-1431973008-727131-Collage1.JPG

3. Mementos
Matchbooks, ticket stubs, napkins, notes and photos are all stuffed within these pages.

2015-05-18-1431974306-5119679-Diarystuff.JPG

4. Song Lyrics
I painstakingly wrote out the lyrics to a Richard Marx song — what is more dramatic than that? NOTHING.

2015-05-18-1431974234-9675386-RichardMarx.JPG

5. What I Wore
The outfits! Day after day of all the the outfits!

2015-05-18-1431976137-1653855-whatiwore.JPG
2015-05-18-1431976881-1054106-whatiwore2.jpg
2015-05-18-1431976190-8592960-whatiwore3.JPG

These are the books of my life. From the mundane, like “today in class we had a “subatoot,” to the major “today we are moving, they are coming to take everything away and I don’t want to be here and Brian asked me to marry him.”

I did not marry Brian.

We were 17 years old.

In retrospect, it was all very sweet.

It’s all there in these pages. If there was a fire, yes, I would grab these.

As I get older, I want to continue to turn the pages, to touch the napkin from my prom night and get all nostalgic.

I want to show the R.E.M. ticket stub to my children and tell them how it was one of the best shows I ever saw and show them the entry where Mom took me out to brunch so we could talk because she knew I was struggling in school and in life. I want to smile, wince, laugh and cry as I remember who I was.

The China Diary of George H.W. Bush

The China Diary of George H.W. Bush


Available in print for the first time, this day-by-day diary of George H.W. Bush’s life in China opens a fascinating window into one of the most formative periods of his career. As head of the United States Liaison Office in Beijing from 1974 to 1975, Bush witnessed high-level policy deliberations and daily social interactions between the two Cold War superpowers. The China Diary of George H.W. Bush offers an intimate look at this fundamental period of international history, marks a monumental contribution to our understanding of U.S-China relations, and sheds light on the ideals of a global president in the making. In compelling words, Bush reveals a thoughtful and pragmatic realism that would guide him for decades to come. He considers the crisis of Vietnam, the difficulties of détente, and tensions in the Middle East, while lamenting the global decline in American power. He formulates views on the importance of international alliances and personal diplomacy, as he struggles to form meaningful relationships with China’s top leaders. With a critical eye for detail, he depicts key political figures, including Gerald Ford, Donald Rumsfeld, Deng Xiaoping, and the ever-difficult Henry Kissinger. Throughout, Bush offers impressions of China and its people, describing his explorations of Beijing by bicycle, and his experiences with Chinese food, language lessons, and Ping-Pong. Complete with a preface by George H.W. Bush, and an introduction and essay by Jeffrey Engel that place Bush’s China experience in the broad context of his public career, The China Diary of George H.W. Bush offers an unmediated perspective on American diplomatic history, and explores a crucial period’s impact on a future commander in chief.

Bonking Billy’s Thailand Diary

Bonking Billy’s Thailand Diary


Bonking Billy’s Thailand Diary (Part I) reached No.1 in Amazon’s bestseller list under the Asia category within a couple of days of its release, so there better be Part II out to the people who bought it as quickly as possible, so here it is.Bonking Billy Essex has been coming to Thailand for a long time now and although he is realistic enough to realize he will never understand the mysteries of the Far East, he sure knows how to have a good time.Bonking Billy unashamedly visits Thailand and Pattaya for the bars, the girls and the infamous nightlife that throbs and pulsates beneath the flashing neon lights of one of the wildest cities in the world. Billy couldn’t tell you much about the history or culture of the country he loves so much; he doesn’t know a chedi from a wihaan, prefers fish and chips to exotic Thai cuisine and thinks that karma is some kind of an Indian curry. But boy; does he know his way around the night-streets.Peter Jaggs has written several best-selling books about Thailand and Pattaya and he rescued the dog-eared, torn copy of Bonking Billy’s Thailand Diary he found scrawled in an exercise book from where it had been discarded behind a wardrobe in a cheap hotel room. At once, the author recognized that the jumbled, almost illegible tome was not just the hilarious, drunken ramblings of a sex-crazed, hedonistic libertine, but also a brutally accurate historical account of the characters, attitudes and ways of a city that in the early years of the new millennium was finally in its death throes as possibly the craziest place on earth. Jaggs tweaked Bonking Billy’s Thailand Diary a little, changed a few names of places and people to protect the guilty, and the result is an extraordinary journal that gives the reader an accurate and amusing insight into the Pattaya of days gone by; at a time when the city was just coming to the end of its reign as one of the raunchiest destinations ever known to man.

Turtle Diary

Turtle Diary


Life in a city can be atomizing, isolating. And it certainly is for William G. and Neaera H., the strangers at the center of Russell Hoban’s surprisingly heartwarming novel Turtle Diary . William, a clerk at a used-book store, lives in a rooming house after a divorce that has left him without home or family. Neaera is a successful writer of children’s books, who, in her own estimation, looks like the sort of spinster who doesn’t keep cats and is not a vegetarian. Lookslike a man’s woman who hasn’t got a man. Entirely unknown to each other, they are both drawn to the turtle tank at the London zoo with minds full of turtle thoughts, wondering how the turtles might be freed. And then comes the day when Neaera walks into William’s bookstore, and together they form an unlikely partnership to make what seemed a crazy dream become a reality.

My New York Fashion Week Diary: Carolina, Tommy, Zac, Donna and More

New York Fashion Week, the biannual whirlwind of runway shows and presentations (the culmination of months that American designers have spent to create their vision for the next season), is upon us, and the big questions are too: what to wear in the snow? How long will it take to get to Brooklyn Saturday night? And, will the Marc Jacobs show start 3 minutes early as usual? As buyers, editors, bloggers, stylists and celebrities descend upon New York City from all over the world, it is a clear reminder of the energy and excitement that fashion creates on both the runway and the street. It’s February, which means we’re seeing fall 2014 collections, and at ELLE, we are already planning for our big September fashion issue. Here is a look at what I saw and did on Monday.

10 a.m.: If it weren’t so dark in the tents you could make out the army of dashing young men clad in @houseofherrera #herreralive t-shirts greeting us on our way into the Carolina Herrera show this morning. A refreshing way to start a Monday! A beautiful collection full of rich, earthy tones, pops of red, geometric prints, the most gorgeous opening silhouette and hints of transparency from someone who is truly the most elegant woman I know. She’s so smart, charming and funny, and really understands what women want when they get dressed.

The finale walk

11 a.m.: At Tommy Hilfiger. The skirts are short, the jackets are long and everything, everything, is plaid. Including the long finale blanket dresses. The set is piney and snowy and I had the charming company of Michael Clinton (President, Marketing Publishing Director of Hearst Magazines) who told me he’s training for a marathon — in Antarctica, in three weeks! I was also happy to see my good friend Heather Vandenberghe from Tommy, but realize it’s definitely time for a drinks date with her as you can only cover so much territory standing next to the runway before a show. Side note; look for our upcoming piece in ELLE on Tommy Hilfiger’s impressive CMO Avery Baker.

The snowy scene

12 p.m.: Alas, the real snow is tripping everyone up in Manhattan — it’s curtains up at my noon show, which is all the way downtown, but I’m still on 67th and Park, in front of the Armory where Tommy had his show.

12:30 p.m.: At the office since there was no way to make it downtown in time. I work on finalizing our April cover, have two impromptu hallway meetings where we actually get a lot done, answer as many emails as I can, eat a grilled cheese sandwich (in solidarity with my 11-year-old son) and run back to the car to get to my next show.

2:50 p.m. Arrive at 3.1 Phillip Lim, actually early for a 3:00 show, which is at Skylight at Moynihan Station, inside the iconic James A. Farley Post Office across from Penn Station. I love the way Phillip played with proportions; the bold hits of color he injected in the collection and the big vests and belt buckles.

2014-02-12-ScreenShot20140211at8.36.13PM.png

4 p.m.: Rachel Dratch and Alan Cumming open Kenneth Cole’s show with a funny short film in which Kenneth Cole — gasp — invokes the name of another designer. The show was styled by ELLE’s own creative director Joe Zee and I have to say he did such a great job — showing how a little styling can take beautifully cut basics and turn them into something street, sexy and sophisticated all at once. I spot my former neighbors Chris and Christina Cuomo having fun with Michael Strahan and Jon Bon Jovi, who have both coincidentally told us their secrets in our Cherchez la Femme column.

7 p.m.: Zac Posen’s show is in a small, intimate venue: almost hushed in a way. The hair and the styling both send me on a trip to the past of my very glamorous stepmother (the first of three — is a fourth currently in the works? I digress…) who wore caftans to the country club during the day and smoked cigarettes out of lacquered holders and wore her platinum hair as high as possible — but with no visible hair pins. Zac’s dresses all have a sweeping quality to them, the gowns of course, but even the body-huggers: you must sweep into a room if you’re wearing one of these.

One of the dramatic gowns

8:15 p.m.: This show marks Donna Karan’s 30th anniversary in the business, and her impressive body of work over the past three decades is definitely something to be celebrated. The clothes are feminine and sexy, but mixed with that urban edge and grit that is both very New York and very Donna Karan. Our fashion news director Anne Slowey tweeted that it was “the Vagina Monologues.” (The invite said The Journey of a Woman. Being one, I was happy to ride along.)

2014-02-12-ScreenShot20140211at8.32.02PM.png

9:30 p.m.: Barneys New York dinner to celebrate their amazing spring 2014 campaign — Brothers, Sisters, Sons & Daughters, which features 17 transgender models — and the accompanying film, both shot by Bruce Weber. The film is incredibly touching and thoughtful, and lovingly shot. It was inspiring to hear their stories and such a pleasure to be there and support this important project. After watching the film, I sit down to enjoy a late supper with my beautiful and serene seatmate designer Maria Cornejo.

11:45 p.m.: Home. Check the mail, the email, the children, the locks. Goodnight!
