From my previous entry, I wrote about Lanvin's amazing clutches for the men's spring 2012 collection. In addition to my Celine clutch family, I added a camel and green color combination to my growing collection. Mimi of Barneys New York watches over me. As soon as a Celine clutch hits the floor, she sends me an image for my approval. These clutches are hard to get. It is very addictive to collect all the color ways of the inevitable piece from Celine. I won't be surprised if I reached the dozen mark. Mystery man buys me Celine. It's my turn to purchase one for myself. I am the proud father of 3... more to come.


Lanvin's Spring 2012 Men's collection was a hit. What caught my attention? There were so many clutches on the runway. I can't wait to get my hands on these magnificent accessories. My addiction hasn't stopped.

Charlize Theron may have an Oscar award, but she hasn't done good movies lately. I cannot wait to see her portrayal as the evil queen in "Snow White and the Huntsman" this coming Spring 2012. She is the best fit for the role. Her beauty, height, and charm is an added value to the character. Unlike Julia Robert's movie "Mirror Mirror", Charlize is the queen of all evil queens. I have seen the official trailer on You Tube. She bathes in milk. She absorbs the spirit of the youth. What more can you ask? I believe this is her come back role after her under rated, non box office movies. It's time to remove the curse of Oscar winning actresses of not having a come back movie. All I can say, "Mirror mirror on the wall. Who is the fairest of them all?" It's up to you to judge. Wait till the summer approaches in 2012. Right now, we need to feel the cold.

This past Tuesday, Anna Wintour together with Chanel hosted a party in honor of famed director Pedro Aldomovar. Her arm candy for the evening is Karl Lagerfeld. Aside from Prada and Marni, Anna favors Chanel. She wore the latest ensemble from Chanel's Fall Haute Couture Collection. Anna has the habit of repeating her wardrobe. Last July, she was honored by the French government by giving her the highest award... the legion of honor. She wore the outfit fresh off the runway. There is no crime in repeating an outfit. She is also telling the world that there is nothing wrong to do a repeat performance. At the end of the day, Anna was wearing couture. She has a great body for her age.

Aside from Prada and Chanel, Vogue editrix Anna Wintour loves Marni. At the recent CFDA/Vogue Fund award, she wore an ensemble from Marni's Spring 2012 collection. The designer had to tweak the wardrobe. Instead of a V-neck line, Consuelo changed it to a round neck. Only Anna can command and dictate designers to create custom made ensembles for her. Most editors-in-chief are jealous of Anna's power. If there is an order in Anna's church, she is the Messiah of the fashion world. She remains the queen bee of the industry. No one can beat Anna. As long as she lives, she will remain supreme. Get the picture.

The highly anticipated Christian Louboutin sample sale began yesterday for VIP clients. Tomorrow will be devoted to the press. Last year, you can bring a guest to the sample sale. This year, you cannot bring anybody. The list is very tight. I can't wait to see what they have. I love buying shoes for my mom and my two sisters.

After having brunch with Claudia and Zander, I decided to see the movie "Immortals". Ever since I was a little boy, I've been fascinated by Greek Mythology. Henry Cavill plays Theseus. A mortal trained by Zeus. He defends Greece against an evil king. King Hyperion played by Mickey Rourke seeks the bow to release the titans. I don't want to give the whole story. You have to watch it. Henry Cavill exudes charm. The body is just to die for. I enjoyed watching it. It gave more inspiration. See it for yourself.

Last Wednesday, I had a chance to see my very good friend Anne V at the Victoria Secret after-party. The celebration was held at the Dream Hotel. I haven't seen her in the longest time. She splits her time in New York and Los Angeles. As soon as I saw her, we gave each other a long hug. I missed her so much. We've known each other for so many years. I am glad I had the chance to chat with her for little bit. All I can say, Anne has the moves like Jagger. Get the hint. Even though we don't see each other, I know our friendship keeps on getting stronger. Love you babe.

Donatella Versace knows how to throw a party. It was the global launch of the collaboration of H&M with the house of Versace. Prince and Nicki Minaj performed at the after-party. Jessica Alba, Kesha, Uma Thurman, Chase Crawford, Blake Lively, Emma Roberts, Tinsley Mortimer were some of the celebrities present. They transformed the hall on hudson into the world of Donatella. The fashion show was amazing with all the greatest hits of the Versace. I stayed the whole night to party. It was worth it.

Last night, Gucci was the proud sponsor of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art Gala. Celebrities like Reese Witherspoon, Leonardo DiCaprio, Amy Adams, Kate Beckinsale, Cameron Diaz, Kate Hudson, Drew Barrymore, Uma Thurman were some of the big A listers who graced the event. There were 3 women who caught my attention with regards to their fashion ensembles: Camilla Belle, Evan Rachel Woods, and Zoe Zaldana. They all wore different variations of Gucci's Spring 2012 flapper dresses. As mentioned in one of my posts, it is one of my favorite and the strongest collections in Italy. The art deco inspiration with a reference to the architecture of the Chrysler building became a sure hit. I am glad these ladies chose to wear these gorgeous dresses last night. Bravo.

As usual, Howard from Barneys New York loves to sell me statement shoes. The last purchase I made were these amazing Burberry Prorsum combat boots. I had to charge it with my secret credit card. Howard showed me these amazing boots from Alexander McQueen. I told him that I am done buying shoes for Fall/Winter 2011. He knows my taste. The boots are hot. I love the brush gold detail from the front and the back. I don't know if the shoes are comfortable. It is very tempting to buy, but I will save my money for something else. My addiction to shoes does not stop.

It's been 2 years since I have been dating mystery man. Our relationship is quite complicated. Why? I don't see him a lot. He travels so much and loves to explore the unknown. I believe he was a gypsy in his past life. Finally, it took a lot of convincing for him to come to my sister's wedding. He keeps coming back to New York for his fitting at TF. Aside from Paul Smith, he loves TF's designs. He asked me if I already got my tuxedo. I told him I bought it from Jil Sander. He was laughing because I was impatient. At the Tom Ford boutique, he told me he could have bought my tuxedo. Well! I did not know. Alas! The baron will come to Manila to attend my sister's wedding. It is a big step for him. I am very proud of his efforts. It is tough, but he has to face the music. I am glad he is a part of my life. I told him that I'd wear Tom Ford for our wedding. Indeed, it is an awakening.
