This-is-so-sweet-of-milan

This installment of my weekly #SundayStories is dedicated to my dear friend, Jean Paul Gaultier. Xx

Jean Paul Gautlier doesn’t treat models like they’re just clothes hangers. He knows and uses the same posse of girls in his runway shows because he truly loves them. Usually fittings with designers are rushed and crazed because they are on a count down clock to showtime. When you go for a fitting with Mr. Gaultier, even the night before the show, he always has time to chat and to offer you sweets from a beautiful presentation that even Marie Antoinette would appreciate. Once when I was there, we went up to the rooftop of his atelier at sunset and ate cake. As we watched the sun go down we talked about my week and the inspiration for his latest collection (Jean Paul always has some huge and fascinating story behind his clothing). Ive always looked forward to my stops at JPG atelier. Paris is the final fashion week and so after New York, London and Milan I’d most certainly be tired, overworked and kind of frustrated, and then this nice, bubbly Frenchman is like, “Would you eat cake with me?”

What kind of 21st Century Animals the Companions Would Have?

Random thoughts!

Paladin Danse: a pitbull that’s just like him: tough on the outside, lovable on the inside.

Curie: a cute little hamster! or two. or five.

Cait: a black cat with a “go fuck yourself” attitude

Strong: lol elephant. Or any exotic, large animal.

X6-88: Doberman so well trained you don’t even know it’s there. Like Caesar Milan status.

MacCready: a tiny little poofy dog that’s super cute like a pomeranian

Piper Wright: the sweet kind of tabby cat that makes cat-haters love cats

Nick Valentine: an old bloodhound that sits there as he smokes a cig

Codsworth: fish! Lots of little fish in a fish tank! Easy to take care of

Deacon: one of those dorky cats that hides in boxes and cereal cabinets

Hancock: totally a snake. shows it off as it slithers up his hand snake.

Preston Garvey: FUCKING PARROT THAT NEVER SHUTS UP ABOUT HIS DUTIES!

Dogmeat: lol

“So this is a funny situation. Obviously in the moment, it’s difficult to accept that because you are speaking about a top professional footballer, but the kid was 18 or 19, to have one of these naive reactions…
“So you didn’t laugh at the time.
“Not at the time, but a couple of days later I had to laugh, especially to remember it in a sweet way.”

Chic, and oh-so-obsessed! In February, COVERGIRL’s creative director Pat McGrath hopped across the pond to lend her makeup artistry talent at several runway shows during London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks. Using COVERGIRL, she got models runway-ready with gorgeous looks and even had time to indulge a little in sweet European treats. We can’t wait for this September, when she takes on Summer/Spring 2016 Fashion Week.

“Home Sweet Home” What did it sound like?

This song was reputedly banned from being played in Union Army camps during the American Civil War for being too redolent of hearth and home and so likely to incite desertion

This song that has remained well known for over 150 years. Adapted from American actor and dramatist John Howard Payne’s 1823 Opera Clari, or the Maid of Milan, the song’s melody was composed by Englishman Sir Henry Bishop with lyrics by Payne. The words are as follows:

  • Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam, Be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home; A charm from the skies seems to hallow us there, Which seek thro’ the world, is ne'er met elsewhere. Home! Home! Sweet, sweet home! There’s no place like home There’s no place like home!  
  • During the winter of 1862-1863, Union and Confederate armies were camped near each other at Fredericksburg, Virginia, separated only by the expanse of the Rappahannock River. One cold afternoon, a band in the Union camp struck up some patriotic tunes to cheer the men. They were answered from across the river by a Confederate band. The Union band played another tune followed by the Confederates who also did their best to play the same song. Back and forth the musical duel went well into the evening hours. Soldiers in both armies listened to the musical battle and would cheer for their own bands. The duel finally ended when both bands struck up the tune of “Home, Sweet Home”. It was then that the men of both sides who were so far from their homes, cheered as one.

indiaspalvieri; It was really nice to meet again Dakota. She’s one of the cutest woman I’ve ever met, so sweet and polite with everyone. Her simplicity and sense of humor, always brings joy to everyone. She’s also an inspiration about many things, style, behavior, acting, attitude… 😌 I hope everyone can see her for what she really is: a very beautiful person inside and out 💋💋 #tiredbutdelightedface

callmesarah_; Me and Dakota Johnson in Milan.
To be honest I was there, from Rome, just because of @indiaspalvieri, who is a huge fan of her, but Dakota was really sweet and kind with me too. I didn’t ask anything cause it wasn’t my moment I was there just to support India, indeed I let her go first, and Dakota after taking a picture with her said to me “Do you want a picture too?” and obviously I replied yes. I need to say that she was one of the kindest actresses I’ve never met, she could have say that she was in late or simply ignore me, but she didn’t, I really appreciate that 😊 #dakotajohnson #mfw15 #milan #fashionweek

Okay, I’m finally back on Tumblr. In these last few weeks I had a lot of things to do, but now I’m back here. March was a very important month for me. I had the fortune to meet my favorite band twice (In Marseille and in Milan) and I was finally able to realize my dream after eight years of waiting.

These are the photos of my M&G with Tokio Hotel in Milan. (17/03). This was the best day of my life. The guys are so sweet, kind and cute with the fans. So adorable! I also had a little funny moment with the guys, maybe I’ll post the pictures later, haha. If you have any question about the concert, the M&G, the guys or whatever, you can ask! :)

Later I’ll post the pic of my M&G with Tokio Hotel in Marseille (09/03)

Seeing you tonight has brought me so much joy that I can’t even explain… You are perfect, kind, sweet, strong. And you’re worth it, trust me, so worth it. I love you so so so much. I hope to see you again, but I don’t want to wait 7 years.
