.. But first she needs to attend a fabulous pool party..
And she needs to bring her friends, dress like it’s Ibiza or St. Tropez, get a Sunday-Funday type of buzz on and then go home to pack before she jets off to far away shores.
I’m off to Nicaragua tonight for a week. I booked a modeling gig that shoots down there, but we are not going to be shooting every day so there will be plenty of time to do sight seeing, read the 2 new scripts that I just got and shoot my own pictures. I got this new fish eye objective from Willoughby’s Camera Emporium in NYC that I’m going to test out down there. I always buy my camera equipment at Willoughby’s simply because they get me the best deals and I love them.
And it’s probably going to rain cats and dogs down there too since the rain season just set in. But I think tropical rain is sexy as hell, besides, the sun is out every day in LA so I’ll be fine…
I’m wearing a tunic from one of my trips to India, gold belt from my grandmother, gold hot pants from Dolce&Gabbana, shades from Versace, bangles are either my grandmothers or vintage, leopard sandals from Steve Madden and Purse from Chanel.
Last night I was in a fashion show here in LA. It was for a young designer who makes amazing dresses. The kind of dresses where you feel like a million dollars. I will post the pics from the show here when I get them.
These pics are shot on my way home after a long nigh out. After the show I caught a second wind and went to my friend Nate’s bday party. He is a club promoter and throws some pretty rad parties.
Do beauty and politics mix? If you take a glance at France where president Nicolas Sarkozy stunned the world when he wed ex super model and singer Carla Bruni in February 2008 it seems that the ‘B’ and the ‘P’ are compatible. Here in Beverly Hills it’s a bit different. But nevertheless I had a ‘when beauty meets politics’ kinda experience the other day. Maybe not on a so glamorous scale as ‘Le French almost royals’, but still.
When I’m feeling in the dumps and in desperate need of a quick pick-me-up fix I don’t go to the gym, which I probably should (damn it’s been almost 2 months with no gym.. and it shows…) But no, I go and pay my favorite Beverly Hills spa called SPA 415 a visit. Here I’m introduced to something called a ‘photo facial’. I don’t know exactly what it is, but it doesn’t hurt and it works. The skin looks so much better and plumber after one of her treatments. The owner of the spa, Liza is a genius when it comes to ‘pick-me-up’ sessions. (oh and PS – last time I was there ‘Lily from ‘Gossip Girl ‘AKA Kelly Rutherford was there and she looks stunning in real life. XOXO)
So the other day Liza had an event where she invited a bunch of ladies who are all deeply involved in Politics and who are supporting Meg Whitman in her campaign to be the new Governor in California. And when I say ladies, I mean ladies. Usually I work with and hang out with film, fashion people and artists. This was different and very inspiring to discover very well educated women living in the big ’90210′, who like to discuss everything from international politics, immigration politics to Finish literature.
Apparently Meg Whitman used to be CEO of EBay and Time ranked her among the world’s most influential people as well as Fortune ranked her the most powerful woman in business in 2004 and 2005.
Here are a couple of shots from the event.

Last night was the Party of S Magazine. Last time I went to S’s party was in New York 2 years ago and I ran into a bunch of peeps I hadn’t seen in years. Same thing happened last night. It was an eclectic and very good crowd. Très ‘fashion’ at least in LA terms..
I had just come from a casual meeting with a director and a producer down on 3rd street and hadn’t had time to go home and change. Happy that I always have a pair of xtra heels in my Ford Bronco. A girl gotta be prepared in this city. In New York I’d carry my heels in my handbag, here I have them in my car. That kind of gives you the showdown of the difference between New York and Los Angeles. Yes, LA is the sunshine state where life is comfy and easy. No bite and no nerve, but plenty of palm trees and broad smiles.
Here are a couple of snaps from last night:

Like the bag
OMG! This bag ‘Fjällräven’ is the epitome of Scandinavia! We all carried it to school when we were kids. Stuffed with heavy books, smelly lunch bags and color pencils. Mine was light blue. Such a blast from the past.
2 black leather jackets leaving the scene and moving on to Roxy for some rock’n'roll… and interestingly enough the guys in the band performing this night all used to play with Juliette Lewis – the cover girl of this issue of S Magazine. Talk about a small world.
Every Sunday the vintage store JETRAG on La Brea has their weekly 1 dollar sale. It’s not far from my house so this Sunday I went. Tip: It’s best to go early in the AM when the good stuff is still around.
You will roam through huge piles of junk and diamonds in the rough in the company of super dolled up fashion stylists browsing for the next ‘it-item’ and homeless people just looking for a cheap outfit. It’s pure madness, it’s hilarious and definitely worth a visit. Everything is 1 dollar…
I found 2 shirts, a cardigan and a dress. 4 dollars. Yezzziiir!
I don’t know what is up with this mad obsession I got with reggae all of a sudden…..? However, I rediscovered this track with Estelle and Sean Paul on my Ipod and dig it big time. But somebody should consider giving Sean Paul a make over… sorry… Just putting my 2 cents in…
