Mandy Coon doing some correspondence as we set up last night. Sparkling stars of Los Angeles below.
Dear Diane, Dear Shaded Viewers,
I'm reporting from our beautiful place above the Chateau Marmont, just before the sun sets on day one. Corinna Springer from Nouveau PR is here from NY, and I caught her taking a lovely little stolen moment to meditate.
Young designer Stacey Clark of Odilon, and her sister Stephanie Clark, an accomplished equestrian,are with us as we wait for a few more editors to arrive. Designer Mandy Coon has been DJing all day.
Clearly we need more of Corinna Springer in LA.
THVM denim after set up last night.
Odilon designer Stacey Clark talking about her Fall 12 collection while wearing one of her summer 12 knit skirts.
Amongst many guests today was my dear friend, stylist Ezra Woods, who brought sweet actress Jena Malone by for a visit. Jena tried on a lot of great pieces by A.F. Vandevorst, Edith Palm, THVM, Odilon, Barbara Briones, Dream Collective, and Mandy Coon.
Its been a very busy day, but I did take a moment to enjoy the sun for ten minutes.
We cannot get enough of the outdoor space on days like today! (I am wearing an Odilon silk dress, Eddie Borgo for Odilon bangles, Giuseppe Zanotti heels, and vintage sunglasses.)
The lovely Refinery 29 West Coast Editor Brenna Egan tries on an Edith Palm raw silk jacket. Brenna almost always has some unexpected vintage piece as part of her ensemble, and of course I love that.
Dream Collective and Kathryn Bentley jewelry on the piano. Barbara Briones shoes on the table.
After our last appointments, we are headed to the Chateau for Eddie Borgo's trunk show, then to The Last Magazine launch party at Milk Studios.
Back to the final press days appointments on Thursday.
Come on in, the water is warm.
