Last week I was busy preparing for Fashion’s Night Out and the week of fashion, friends, and fun. What girl doesn’t love dressing up and getting a sneak peak at the latest fashions?
Thursday, Sept. 6
Fashion Week kicked off on Thursday at Fashion’s Night Out. My good friend and producer, Kim McCoy and I attended the benefit event at Dior.
The New York City AIDS Fund in the New York Community Trust was the charity benefiting from this spectacular evening. We had a great time at the Dior event and were photographed together enjoying the night’s festivities.
I stopped by the Donna Karan store in Manhattan after the Dior event to say hello. Donna had a signing of her new book honoring her late husband, Stephan Weiss: Connecting the Dots, Portrait of a Man, and I couldn’t resist picking up several copies for gifts. (Donna looks fabulous by the way.)
Sunday, Sept. 9
On Sunday, I had a front row seat for Chado Ralph Rucci, and it was amazing. I’m excited to share that color is everywhere— fuchsia, hot yellow and every color to make your heart leap with joy when spring 2013 hits. Even the models had a touch of raspberry on their eyelids and it was super-sexy. Loved that shiny back vinyl and I never get tired of it. Chatted it up with Bravo TV’s new starlet, Julia Allison, on “Miss Advised.” Super sweet and gorgeous in person! Saw everyone from Martha Stewart to Paula Abdul!
Monday, Sept. 10
On Day 6 of Fashion Week, I am on my way to the Donna Karan show held in Soho instead of Lincoln Center. I love that she bucks the system and goes for her own venue. The line is wonderful. Sexy and practical at the same time and it was infused with subtle colors. Seafoam green and a pale, pale Italian orange was a chic surprise. Oh yes, I marked several I’ll be rocking this next spring!
Monday night was very special because I got to celebrate my dear girlfriend Lee Woodruff who had a book party for her new and really incredible novel Those We Love Most. The weather was fabulous, and we visited and connected with truly incredible people who all came to support her latest book.
Please go buy several copies! It’s a page-turner you’ll want to curl up with on your sofa along with a glass of wine.

Party in the Shoe Salon at Saks Fifth Avenue on Tuesday so I got in the fashion mood and tweeted pics of my favorite seductive shoes!
Wednesday, Sept. 12
Wednesday was a fabulous day at the Michael Kors show. Michael’s show is always the hottest ticket during fashion week, and I think this was one of my favorite collections that really crosses many age demographics!
From super short and flirty hot pants with jackets to ladylike coats with matching skirts and slacks! Color, color, color! The stars were also out in full force, Michael Douglas and wife Catherine Zeta Jones, Rachel Zoe, Camellia Belle and many more. MK is truly Americana.
Thursday, Sept. 13
It’s Thursday and a way too early morning for me today. I arrived at CBS studios at 6:45 this morning for a 7:40 appearance on “Live From the Couch.” I was so excited to share some affordable changes to a space that will make a big seductive difference in your life.
This week of fab fashion has NOT disappointed. It’s been a busy but exciting week for me in New York, and I cannot wait to share more fashion finds with you this season.
