This trip was a combo of Amfar Gala, Halloween and Basketball.
A RIDE FROM NEW YORK TO LOS ANGELES
My fiancé and I got a ride from New York to Los Angeles on Diane Vonfustenberg’s private plane, invited by Alex Vonfustenberg (her son) there were only friends and family, great company and an amazing catering…
As we landed we headed to the Beverly Hills hotel and next stop was *Karla Otto’s show room where my beloved Salvo Nicosia took care of me finding me an outfit for Amfar, an amazing jump suite from BLUMARINE, accessorizing it with shoes from CASADEI and a clutch from PAULA CADEMARTORI, the hair was done by my dear friend Alvaro at the hair salon at the BHH.
*Some of you must ask your selfs who is Karla Otto? Well, It is one of the biggest PR fro brands agency in the world, and Salvo works there and is loved by everyone in the industry, specially me.
Once ready my fashionista friend Erica Pelossini, who was shooting for the magazine L’Officiel Italy, picked me up on my way to Amfar L.A.
Julia Robert opened the event with a great speech followed by Gwyneth Paltrow to introduce and honor the amazing Hollywood screen writer and director Ryan Murphy, who I personally didn’t know so well, but after his words on stage, I was introduced not only to an incredible talented person, but I had just gotten to know someone who had used his talent to open doors for acceptance and diversity in this world, I feel real honored to have been there that night.
After we enjoyed a magnificent performance from Lady Gaga for almost two hours! Invoking Hollywood’s jazzy glam. I feel real lucky to have had presence such a moment.
Next day was my favorite day of the year; Halloween!
Since few years now we are having weekends Halloweens, don’t know who started but I guess economy loves it and it allow us to have few days of fun.
My fiancé wins for creativity, first night he did not have an outfit so he asked the hotel concierge for a bed sheet, I cut two holes for the eyes and he became ”Beverly Hills hotel ghost”!
Second night we went to few parties and ended up at 1Oak where Alessandra Ambrosio, who was hosting the party, kept throwing kisses at Ted… my fiancé dressing as a naughty teddy bear of over 6 foot tall.
The first night I dressed as one of my favorite characters of all times; ”Pretty Woman”, and since I was in LA it was kind of obvious I had to go for it, and for the second round of Halloween I dressed as a tiger. I did my own make up which I have to say was pretty well done. The boots and bag that I wore were CHRISTIAN LABOUTIN, I felt like I had to wear something a bit more chic having such a cheese outfit on me.
Next morning my fiance woke me up with a Rose asking forgiveness for being such a Ted the night before.
BASCKETBALL, Los Angeles LAKERS/Dallas MAVERICKS
We were giving as presents from Alex Vonfustenberg and his wife Ali Key, the best seats at center court! OMG! what an amazing experience. Seeing Kobe Bryant few feet away and my family most favorite player Chandler Parsons, seriously! he is my nephews favorite and now mine as well.
During the game my fiancé wore the Ted mask from his costume the night before, but security didn’t think was that funny and almost threw as out of the building, but fortunatly people that were watching the match seating next to us stood up for us and told them to calm down and they did, thank you guys!
After the game we got to hang out for a bit with the gorgeous and sweet German super model Toni Garn and her boyfriend the american basketball player Chandler Parsons, they are such a beautiful couple of two gentle, smart and funny people, wish them to have at least ten kids!
Stroll in Beverly Hills.
Before we left LA, Milutin and I went for ice cream on Rodeo Drive and on the way I hugged my favorite tree in town.
We got a lift back to New York with another friend of us, who is one of the greatest man alive, having giving half of his fortune to charity, Patrice Motsepe and his wife Precious from South Africa, such wonderful people!
