Dear Shaded Viewers,

My friend Vincent Gagliostro finally returned from a month and a half stay in New York and he introduced me to my new intern, Valentin Jardinier-Almodovar. Yesterday we met and started working together instantly. I took Valentin with me to the Iris Van Herpen couture show. I thought that was an excellent way to start his internship.

After the show Valentin Jardinier-Almodovar, Philippe Pourhashemi and Paulo Mariotti had dinner in the neighborhood where I ran into a friend I met on my only trip to Hong Kong, Rainbow. She just came back from her hot yoga class and lives a few doors down from the resto.
