Yesterday, I went to visit what is announced as one of the major design events this year for the Salone del Mobile: the EDIT exhibition by Design Junction.
EDIT is an exhibition of 25 international design brands atLa Pelota, a very cool exhibition spaze in the Brera district of Milan. The event is very laid back, with a big table tennis to play with in the middle of the venue and the designs proposed over there are very “hip”. My favourite? The gorgeous OverNight lamps from Odd Matter and some very strange sheep chairs!
Visa is a partner for the event and, just so you know, in case you have a Visa Premium card, there is a lounge with free cocktails just for you (you will also have priority access and a guided tour to the exhibition as well as special tickets for Salone del Mobile events).
Ever dreamt of looking like a movie star just for one night?
The other day, Make Up For Everdecided to celebrate the night of the Oscars and organised a very fun tutorial at its Make Up School here in Milan to show us some evening make up techniques and made us look like true movie stars.
Many of my Beauty or Fashion Bloggers friends were there.. and Sephora was also recording the event for its new online Beauty Tv Canal BeauTv! How intimidating ;)
The evening make ups (and hairstyles) that were done that night were absolutely amazing. I still don’t know which one I preferred.. Maybe the one of AudreylikeAlice for the makeup and me for the hairstyle! What do you think?
If you ever wondered how these stars can look so good.. the answer is totally their makeup! ;)
Which Fashionista did not dream of becoming a Stylist one day? At the same time, while this profession of course always appealed to me (this means free clothes and bags right? ;), I always sort of wonder what does a Stylist really do… put clothes and accessories together? Pfff.. how difficult could this be? Don’t we all do it everyday, some of us in less than 5 mn?
Well, the other day, Italian Designer Paola Frani and her team had the great idea to arrange a day for us to come play the Stylist at her Showroom in Milan with all the clothes and accessories she designed for her new Spring / Summer Collection. Everything was there: 2 gorgeous models, a professional photographer, a shooting set, the whole Spring / Summer Collection.. all waiting for us me to “make it happen”: Continue reading →
A very special Fashion Night took place in Milan last Tuesday for the occasion of the UN Universal Children Day (taking place each year on 20 November).
Entitled “Models for a day“, the event selected 10 chic and kick-ass professional women from Milan to model for the night with dresses from emerging Italian designer Laura Mancini and precious jewelry from jewellery maker Rubinia. All profits were sent to the foundation Bianca Garavaglia which fights children tumours.
Sumptuous feather masks, evening gowns and precious stones where mixing with hard professional skillsContinue reading →
Yesterday night was the Campari Calendar Reveal Party, i.e. the party which Campari organised to reveal their new calendar for 2013. What I knew was that Penelope Cruz was the “star” of the calendar.. what I did not know is that she was going to come to the party as well!!

As promised, here are the pictures of the afternoon I spent at my friend V who has one of the coolest shoes closet and collection I have seen in real life (as opposed to on my sad TV). The door handles are Swarovski.. and inside is a little bit like Alibaba’s cavern. Except better. Here are all the pics as well as a quick 5 mn interview with their lucky owner! Continue reading →
This week is a bit mad here in Milan cause it is what I call “Press Day Week”: the week where showrooms decide to present the new Spring Summer 2012 Collections.. almost all together at the same time! ;) So I have been running between one showroom and the other, uptown and downtown, in heels, ok I jumped in the car of my friend Valentina from Zagu Fashion at some point but still.. trying to squeeze in everything in one day Continue reading →

One of my favourite place for an al fresco drink or dinner in Milan is in the very cool restaurant and bar of 10 Corso Como, Milan’s most important fashion store (sort of the equivalent of Colette in Paris)! Continue reading →
