It is always amazing to see design objects that look so fresh and inventive now as they did when they were made by a a still today living artist . Maria Pergay is 83 years old and she arrived in France as an émigrée in 1937. She then studied costume and set design at the Institut des Hautes Etudes Cinématographiques in Paris and took sculpture classes with Russian-French artist Ossip Zadkine. She makes the most beautiful sculptural furniture out of stainless steel.

With the incredible Dolores Chaplin sitting next to me at our table. Such an incredible woman! Thank you Sophie for inviting me!
Out of focus due to …late night and a couple of glasses of champagne…. Karl Lagerfeld and Alber Elbaz in deep conversation.
I really hope that we made this Xmas a little bit brighter for Rwandan children. Thank you Numero’s Babette Dijan for organising this great initiative. You can read more and join the association here: http://www.associationaem.com/association/ . Remember what Winston Churchill said: “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”
Of course I forgot to take pictures of myself (DUH) but thank God for photographers. I have too many pics of myself and it’s really getting boring…. Wearing Dior black tuxedo.

Recently in Rome I met with the elegant Sole Torlonia, one of the three girls responsible for the Milanese label Blaze http://blaze-milano.com . I really like what they do- they make incredible blazers for women. Exatly what every girl needs! Think Katherine Hepburn , Bianca Jagger, think YSL woman – a woman is sexy in a blazer. Powerful. We all know and agree. But their blazers are not just as I love to call it “here today, gone tomorrow” moment in fashion. They are in fact made to order , made from top materials ( not synthetic, beurk) and incredibly tailored . They are here to stay as they are timeless and forever pieces in your wardrobe.( hand it down to your kids!) On top of this I found out that you don’t really need to carry a handbag whilst wearing this blazer- I never do anyway! I hate wearing large bags at night- I would take a small pochette that fits my credit card, keys and Iphone…. max. Inside this blazer there are a couple of secret compartments where you can put your phone, key , money, etc…Smart no?
Adopt – don’t buy! Think of al the little darlings that are looking for a warm home and loving owners. I adopted my dog Dragisa 2 years ago . When we got him he was extremely skinny,frail scared of people (God only knows what he had been through) and sad – and now he is healthy, pampered and loved by all my family. A true treasure!
Here we are going for a morning run in Belgrade
Loved like a son!
Healthy happy dog!

I don’t know if you remember but I mentioned this fabulous brand to you a year and a half ago and I am so happy that they are killing it at the moment! No wonder…they really are the most comfortable high heeled shoes on the market and their design is impeccable. I only wear their shoes at night now…. King Manolo dethroned?

Boccaccio’70- Le tentazioni del dottor Antonio by Federico Fellini (1962) restored by Dolce&Gabbana @ Rome Film FestivalLeave a comment
During the Rome Film Festival I was invited by Dolce & Gabbana to the screening of the Federico Fellini film they restored to perfection. Boccacio ’70 is an Italian anthology of four episodes each shot by a different director from an idea by Cesare Zavattini. The theme that unites all four films is the different aspects of morality and love in modern times in the style of the Italian Renaissance author Boccaccio. I had the pleasure of seeing The temptation of Doctor Antonio shot by Fellini. It was magical watching Anita Ekberg in vivid colours on the big screen – and don’t forget ….bevete piu late! Have a look at these two short extract of the film here
Regarding my outfit – I was inspired by the film Malena and the quintessential Dolce & Gabbana woman. Think Sicily, think Monica, think churches, think veils, think Semana Santa, think celebration of femininity….but a bit more daring. Let’s say ….that woman but X-rayed! Needless to say that it is a total Dolce & Gabbana look including the 50′s style sous- vetements. After the screening I was whisked off to the Dolce&Gabbana and Vanity Fair dinner at Villa Medici. Thank you for a wonderful evening!
Absolutely in love with the Chloe Baylee bag (in the photo) – it’s useful in the city and also when I travel. It fits most of my “gadgets” that I need for daily meetings and it’s the perfect size when you need to quickly pack and leave the country for a short trip . The French Vogue team came to my flat where we shot the story. I had a long chat with Eugenie Trochu and the photographer Herve Goluza before we managed to catch the last minutes of light for my portrait. I am wearing a Fall 2013 Chloe dress and Aquazzura shoes. If you are curious to see what is in my bag – have a look at the following link :

He is equally the Winner of the Who’s Next Vogue Italia accessory category. I went to see his second collection during Paris Fashion week- and the shoes are amazing and very comfortable!
Master at work….
