Hello, darlings! As everyone knows, I have been working closely with my good friend, Ari Seth Cohen, on his spectacular book, Advanced Style, as well as the exactly-named blog that inspired the bestseller. The unforgettable experience in working on both has inspired him to launch a wonderful project that he has put his blood, sweat, and tears in bringing into fruition over the past three years – his Advanced Style documentary. With over 150 hours of footage that includes yours truly, I cannot wait to see the finished result. Although, if this excellent extended trailer is any indication, I am certain that there will be rave reviews from the 2013 film festival circuit that Ari will be pitching to.
In addition, the high profile that I’ve gotten from being featured in the Advanced Style book and the Advanced Style blog has provided me with the opportunity to meet up with some of the most fabulous people. Iris Apfel is one of these fabulous people and it was such a pleasure to run into her a few days ago at the gift show that I had attended. Not only is the glamorous textile mogul a sartorial inspiration, she has also been a motivator in living my life by my famous credo – I am my own special creation. Iris embodies that very spirit effortlessly, which is why I was thrilled when Ari suggested that we take a photograph together. As you can see by the smiles on our faces, we had such a wonderful time in being a part of the Advanced Style family.
