Uomini by Mariano Vivanco and Dolce & Gabbana

Uomini by Mariano Vivanco and Dolce & Gabbana

I quickly popped by the gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana menswear boutique (more like mansion) at Corso Venezia yesterday evening to visit my buddy Mariano Vivanco's UOMINI book party. I'm a big fan of Mariano's work and his new book, published by Dolce & Gabbana and Rizzoli, makes a great addition to my ever-growing collection of coffee table books. Now all I need is a table... and perhaps some coffee as well.

Bryanboy at the Spring/Summer 2011 Shows

Bryanboy at the Spring/Summer 2011 Shows

As you know, it's been a crazy fashion month. Come to think of it, I only did three cities this time around (New York, Milan and Paris). Hopefully I'll do London next season. Here are some photos from the 'Front Row' sections of Style.com/Style.it (the Italian version of Style.com). This entry was inspired by the entry I did during the fall/winter 2010 shows.

About The Other Night...

About The Other Night...

I found this cute photo of me at the Matthew Williamson for Bvlgari event at the Bvlgari Hotel the other night.

Jacket, necklace and fur bag from Dolce & Gabbana, sunglasses from Prada, t-shirt from Theory which I bought during Fashion's Night Out in NYC.

I've been here in Milan for over a week now and believe it or not, I haven't been partying that much. Compared to other seasons, I've been going home a wee bit before (or after) 12 midnight. I'm so swamped with work. Gone are the days of me staying OUT (there's a big difference between staying out and staying up) until the wee hours of the morning.

I've been complaining to a lot of people lately how I need someone to help me with my tasks. I can't do it all on my own. I know I need to step my game up but it's not that easy especially when you're on the road the whole day -- on your own.

We'll see how I evolve over the next few months.

I'm off to Paris later tonight. By overnight train.

I'm very excited.

Letizia Moratti, Mayor of Milan

Letizia Moratti, Mayor of Milan

Klaus Wowereit who is the Mayor of Berlin, is not the only European politician I've met in the past few weeks. I've also had the pleasure of  the honorable Letizia Moratti, the Mayor of Milan, at the Dolce & Gabbana menswear 20th year anniversary.

Check out this video of this beautiful event. Fast forward to 10:00 and you'll see me make a cameo appearance. LOL LOL LOL! :-)

I can't wait to share photos I took. I must say it was probably the most glamorous event I've been in my entire life and I don't think any would top that. For now at least. Haha!

Anna Dello Russo's Home

Great news! After 21 years, the adoption agency called. They finally traced my fairy godmother and it's time for reunification. It turns out, it's streetstyle blog darling, the ravishing Anna Dello Russo, who is also Vogue Nippon's Fashion Director at Large.

Prada Menswear Backstage Spring Summer 2011

Prada Menswear Backstage Spring Summer 2011

While the rest of the fashion pack went to Moncler, I went to the Prada venue an hour before the indicated show time. I was early so I walked to a nearby cafe for a snack. When I walked in, two editors from a Chinese magazine recognized me and we had a quick chat. They wanted to take photos backstage. They invited me to join them but I didn't have a backstage pass.

I decided to join them anyway. What the heck. I don't normally sneak in, in fact, I don't go anywhere unless I'm invited but Prada is Prada. It's one of the biggest shows in Milan.

I also added a "Show Invitations" category. I'll post pictures of show invites there when I have the time.

I know, right. I speak as if I have lots of time. It's true what my dad taught me when I was a kid: free time is the most luxurious thing to have in the world.

Never Let The Rain Get In Your Way

Never Let The Rain Get In Your Way

It's summer in Europe but it rained in Milan when we were there. The super chic Denni wanted to change her outfit for the Dolce & Gabbana menswear 20th anniversary event so we went to her hotel. We took some snaps for memories.

Trattoria Bagutta Milan

Trattoria Bagutta Milan

I joined my good ol' friend Sonny, Anna and Harper's Bazaar backstage honcho Sean Cunningham for dinner at Trattoria Bagutta last night. It's always a pleasure chatting with backstage photographers about models, freelance work, the state of the industry especially with these tough economic times, budget cuts at traditonal media houses and more.

Meanwhile, streetstyle-blog staple, the absolutely stunning and ferosha Kate Lanphear was also there. First one to spot her shall win a kiss on the cheek from me and an oreo cookie.

Naughty Sonny!! Oops. ;) I love you Kate!!!

NATASHA POLY YOU BETTER WERQ!

NATASHA POLY YOU BETTER WERQ!

Back in June, I swore to myself I'll never get photographed beside a model again because I'm not comfortable with the huge disparity between looks... but the inevitable happened. SUPER POWER WONDER TWINS ACTIVATE! Backstage at Dolce & Gabbana, holy moly it's Natasha Poly! 

Natasha Poly and Bryanboy backstage at Dolce & Gabbana spring/summer 2010

Me and my favourite model in the history of all time. The most ferocious walker ever, ever, ever, EVER! I'll never apologize for saying I love her more than I love Gisele, Kate and Naomi COMBINED.

Now, can we please go to WERQ?

That's all.
