These pics are from a few years ago, when I went to Milan to be part of the art fair Miart as a gallerist, the story was published by some press, you can check one article on this link (although it’s in spanish).
But more than the art, I was amazed to see the style of the women and men… all the fashion was amazing, and people are so elegant and confident, women are beautiful and men are so hot!! It’s too bad that most of my pictures from that time were lost when my notebook was stollen… so all I’ve got left is a few pics, but not enough to show some street style, so I just chose these about some styles I was wearing.
This was at the Cavalli bar, and the story behind it is: this guy is also a gallerist, and he went to the barman and said “give me the best drink you have”, and the barman just took a small glass and made him a gin tonic. Then I went to the same barman, playing sexy I smiled at him and said “give me the best drink you have”, he took this huge glass and started mixing and shaking all kind of drinks to impress me…
My friend was laughing so much about it, he told it to everyone for days, and he actually tells it better…
So I guess the moral of this story is girls always have more fun, unless the barman is gay..!!
Also at the Cavalli bar, I love that Versace bag… I was posing with my drink as a trophy!!
This was at the opening of the art fair. I love this outfit, I’ve had this leggings since the 80′s, there actually for skying, I think my mother got them at that time and never dared to wear them, but there perfect for me, I’ve always loved neon colors!!
There’s another story behind the shoes, I got them In New York and it was winter, so it was freezing!!! And I had a lot of layers, and like 3 pairs of socks, and it was a mess to take that all out to try the shoes, so I only tried one, it fit perfect and I bought them. But I didn’t wear the shoes until this time in Milan, when I realized the other shoe was from a different pair, like 2 sizes bigger!!! I wanted to kill myself, in the end I had to change to other shoes that didn’t look so good because it was too hard to walk… So I hope I learned this lesson!!!
This is a simpler look for the day. I used to love that skirt I got at a vintage store in NY, but it got ruined with white paint at a performance in London :-(
Actually that pink camera got ruined on the same performance, it blew on the air and crashed, with many of my stuff… Here’s a link to an article CNN wrote about that project I did in London, for Frieze Art Fair, and in the pic you can see I’m all covered in white paint…
I dont think I can learn this lesson though, when I’m having fun or doing some project I believe in, I forget about everything, so at that moment I dont care if my clothes get ruined, if I loose my bag, anything can happen and I just get carried away with the moment like there’s no tomorrow!!
