If you don’t already know Prabal Gurung, you’re gonna beat yourself up for not knowing when you finally do figure it out. Not only is he a personal confidant, but he also dresses the First Lady (and I don’t mean Prabal himself) AND he just won the CFDA’s Swarovski Award for Womenswear just last week.
Check out the first look below. So major, PG!

There are very few moments when I step back from my world, and think “Okay…it doesn’t get better than this.” But tonight, the pendulum swung in a different direction because Lady Gaga herself came knocking on my door, and of course I had to let her in. Wouldn’t you? And she didn’t come alone. Miss Patti Labelle joined the madness for a duet with the Lady herself (check out their rad duet here).
After the CFDA Awards, everyone came down to the Boom. It was beyond epic. Everyone from Uma Thurman, Terence Koh, Karolina Kurkova, Nicola Formichetti and Marc Jacobs. I could go on and on but that would be uncouth.
I’m giving you a sneak peak now, but you know there’s always more to come, so check back in soon. All my love always….
The recent news for the best and brightest of this years Fashion Designers is the equivalent of filmmakers getting their phonecalls in the middle of the night for the Oscar noms.

Last night, The Standard, New York hosted the first in a series of panel discussions which you will begin to see more frequently within our hallowed halls. The CFDA pulled together retailing’s top masters for a discussion on the future of the industry. Panelists included my personal favorite Roopal Patel of Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman, Jeffrey Kalinsky of Jeffrey, Alexis Maybank, Founder of Gilt Groupe, Jan-Hendrik Schlottman, CEO of Derek Lam and Paul Birardi of Odin.
When one thinks of American fashion icons, it’s very difficult to think of anyone but one person. Yes, my Stan D’arlings, that icon can only be Diane von Furstenberg. The most revered woman in the industry, and coincidentally, The Standard, New York's chicest neighbor (her studio is right across the street), has indulged moi in a rare one-on-one interview where she fills me in on her royalty, her legacy and her non-carnivorous diet.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the supreme reigning Queen of American Fashion, Madame von Furstenberg.
