With the launch of Karl Lagerfeld’s Olympic-themed collection at Selfridges in London Tuesday night, Karl calls this an exercise in laughing at himself. But that did not deter some of fashions finest from coming out to support the notable designer and his collection.

“The drama of this collection isn’t a drama,” the designer said. “It’s a joke. It’s an inspiration. In a way, it’s me. So I have to be careful not to get too much into it, because I don’t expect everybody to dress like me. That’s why I like this collection with the t-shirt to make a joke out of me, because I think I’m a cartoon.”

Not going to lie, I have the biggest supermodel crush on Erin Wasson ever. She is the ultimate bad ass both on camera and off. This all American girl has proven that she’s so much more than just a pretty face, this multi talented model is a successful designer, entrepreneur, and actress in her own right. Wasson always brings tones of attitude in all her shots and this Bullett Magazine shoot is no exception, it’s very high-class hooker with a whole lot of edge.

Over the past weekend I had this great encounter with a San Franciscan. We had one of those conversations where our souls connected and we covered a plethora of topics but the most profound was our talk on art. We discussed the power of art and how it goes deeper than just the physical act of viewing a piece. Art is something you experience and feel within you. It evokes emotion and speaks to you. You may love or hate a work but a least  you felt something and next time ask yourself why you felt this way.

One quite riveting exhibition suggested to me by the San Franciscan was The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk at the De Young museum in SF. The technology and hologramming on top of Gaultier’s parade of fashion through the ages makes this exhibit a MUST EXPERIENCE.

Here’s a sneak peak of the special exhibition going on now until August, 19 2012.
