Karl Lagerfeld Watch Launch Party
Gregory’s Beverly Hills hosted a party last night for the launch of designer Karl Lagerfeld’s collection of watches for Fossil. Decked out with a martini bar and a super chic candy station, the high-end boutique drew a fashionable crowd to come out and celebrate.
The line features 15 watch designs and they each embody the true essence of Karl Lagerfeld and his iconic designs. Detailed with chains, leather, zippers, and his lucky number, seven, this collection is nothing short of luxury. The best part is that they range from $150-595. Affordable chic!
Christmas Came Early!
My friend Tashah, who’s one of my closest friends, is spending the holidays in Miami so we had our own little early Christmas celebration at my apartment on Sunday.
How fucking rad is my new crown!?
She also got me new Karl Lagerfeld x Carine Roitfeld book, The Little Black Jacket, which she snatched for me at the official exhibit in London during her visit there last month.
If you’re not familiar with it, this book is Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld’s reinterpretation of Chanel’s iconic little black jacket. Lagerfeld redesigned the jacket and transformed it into a modern, adaptable garment that can be worn by both sexes and people of all ages. The Little Black Jacket contains Lagerfeld’s photographs of celebrities wearing the jacket with individual flair - sometimes classic, sometimes irreverent, but always Chanel - and each styled by Carine Roitfeld. A range of accomplished actors, musicians, designers, models, writers and directors gets the little black jacket treatment, including Claudia Schiffer, Uma Thurman, Kanye West, Tilda Swinton, Baptiste Giabiconi, Yoko Ono and Sarah Jessica Parker. This book shows the astounding versatility of Chanel’s vision in Lagerfeld’s hands, and ensures the little black jacket’s future as a timeless classic.
Seriously, the best gift ever!
Karl. Anna. John. André.

An interview with Robert Verdi
By Reinaldo Irizarry
For those of you that don’t recognize him immediately, Robert Verdi is a New York staple, known for his TV work on Full Frontal Fashion, Surprise by Design, and a little movie called The Devil Wears Prada. Verdi is also a highly sought-out personal stylist for celebrity clients like Eva Longoria, Hugh Jackman, and Kathy Griffin. This self-made machine has his hands on everything posh and his name is synonymous with all-things style.
Some people say they are fashionably late just to say it, while others actually live by it. Let’s take Robert Verdi for example, who was 20 minutes late to our scheduled interview. He walks in, making an entrance as the casual fab-god that he is wearing designer denim jeans with an intricate pattern shirt, a navy jacket, his signature sunglasses on his head, and an eye-catching “look at me” diamond encrusted necklace. It was so worth the wait. Although he doesn’t visit San Diego often, he obviously loves looking fabulous when he does.
Reinaldo Irizarry: How did you break into fashion? Did the industry select you?
Robert Verdi: It did select me. I was featured in a cover story in The New York Times’ Style Section on a Sunday in 1998 and a regional cable channel called me and asked me to come on as a guest. They kept bringing me back and ultimately asked me to host a regional home design show called Metro Home. This all happened in a really short window of time, probably a ten-week period. Then I became interested in the industry and then, I guess, it expanded.
