Buy a week at VOGUE

Do you want to pay thousands of dollars to work? Charity buzz made that possible.

Ok, to be fair, it's a charity bidding, so you're not really paying in order to work but to help benefit the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights and hey, you'd be working one week with Anna Wintour! Charity Buzz is convinced that "just being near her will make you chic!"

In addition to the week at Vogue the auction winner will also get to attend a fashion show during New York’s Fashion Week.

The bidding starts today and ends on the 1st may.
Minimum bid: $ 1.000,-

Got the money? Bid here.

VOGUE Today I'm wearing: Olivia Palermo

Check out the new VOGUE blog: Today I'm wearing.

After Alexa Chung (February) and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (March), this month Olivia Palermo is presenting her daily outfits.

Olivia Palermo (24) is an Upper East Side socialite, famous through her appearance on the MTV reality show "The City". She's also considered to be the real-life Blair Waldorf, a protagonist in an American teen drama series "Gossip Girl".

Btw, the real-life Gossip Girl was an website called, an anonymous site which manipulated the city's gossip cycle. Statements like "Next time you think about skipping that certain gala, wearing that unknown designer, dating some weird band member, beware”and “We’re watching. And your ranking is on the line!” sound to me pretty much like the fictional Gossip Girl. And Socialite Rank had indeed the power to ruin several socialites and to elevate unknown women to unlikely prominence. And, as in the case of GG, no one knew who was speaking. The website was all on team Tinsley Mortimer (33), another New York's socialite, and therefore against her rival Palermo. After the website had posted an unpleasant rumour about Palermo sending a letter to other socialites, begging for acceptance, she filed a lawsuit against it. Eventually the website shut down in May 2007 after 1 year of existing. More of the socialite gossip here.

So now, my post wound up gossiping as well, which wasn't the point of it at all. All those intrigues are actually completely irrelevant. All I care about (as long as I don't have to actually socialize with people) is someone's style. And Olivia Palermo does have a lovely sense of style. And a great amount of money to afford it. Weather she is a nice person or not,
Frankly, I don't give a damn.

Peek & Cloppenburg Roadshow in Frankfurt

About two weeks ago I attended the Mercedes-Benz Fashionweek Berlin Roadshow by Peek & Cloppenburg. The delayed blog post speaks for itself - the show didn't blow my mind. The whole concept of this roadshow is nothing more but to present some of the clothes lines you can buy at P&C. Those lines were:






Peek & Cloppenburg Düsseldorf didn't show themselves as exclusive as an actual Fashion Show and even offered to perform the Show twice due to the high attendance, which made the models look pretty weary. A nice thing was the late-night shopping with cocktails and the possibility to purchase the clothes right after the catwalk.

Unfortunately P&C didn't offer the "C&C" (chic&clever) cocktails, which I fancied at the Weekday Opening Party. Ramazzotti cocktails were pretty chic, but absolutely not clever, as they can leave behind stains! (Weekday offered Gin Tonic)

And there is always someone clumsy to fulfill the feared.. (Amazing that this time it wasn't me!)

The best thing about this whole event was the goodie bag with, among other things, an illustrated book "BACKSTAGE. Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin" with some nice images made by the leading photographer of the Fashion Week Berlin Claudius Holzmann.

Weekday Store Opening Cologne

On Thursday Weekday premiered in Cologne with a Store Opening Party. Although the weather wasn't very inviting to go out that evening, the store was very crowded and the queue became longer with each minute. But the waiting totally paid off once you were inside the store: great scene, lots of drinks, delicious small cakes, free Weekday bags and many more. A pity, though, that the purchase of the clothes was possible only the next day..

Here are some impressions of that night:
