I had a glass of water and a cup of coffee. I like El Pico coffee; it's one of those Spanish espresso coffees that's well-priced and always flavorful. I have a little Krups thing at home and I get busy and steam my Coffee-Mate. It's more of a latte. I had a bowl of Fiber One cereal with skim milk.
For lunch, I ordered from Hale & Hearty, as I do every day. I had a small vegetable soup, and a spinach salad with carrots, red onions, and craisins — I just love them. And there were walnuts and Cajun chicken, with vinaigrette on the side. I had a glass of water. It's hard for me to remember to drink water during the day, so I have to have a regimen.
I went to dinner with Thelma Golden, from the Studio Museum. She invited me to cocktails at her condo building, where a friend of hers has an amazing penthouse with views of Manhattan. We were up there as the sun set, and we had some lemonade-spiked cocktails. We went on to dinner right on St. Nicholas Avenue in Harlem, to a restaurant called Mojo. I had a really great salad, and then some sea bass that was on a bed of beautiful vegetables. Thelma had some homemade doughnuts for dessert — petite people can do these things — but I just watched. I had a glass of Chardonnay.

“I know that the French Open outfit look caused a stir, but I think the one I will wear in the next couple days will be better yet—it’s all about lace and fringes, a lot of fringes. I’m thinking about Tina Turner here. I am not sure how that is going to go over, but at least I can say that it will catch everyone’s attention.”

If you view less than 10 Resort 2011 Collections you will soon notice one trend that will certainly jump right out: Jumpsuits! Every chic woman knows that it takes a very confident woman to pull off a one piece such as a jumpsuit. Luckily the designers gave us options from old classic/Bill Blass, metallic rocker/Malandrino to comfortable drape/Donna Karan. Take a look and tell us which one you would dare to wear!

New designer co-signed by Andre Leon Talley - Laquan Smith
Joe Zee the Creative Director at Elle may be hungry for publicity to put up with Olivia on the popular MTV reality program The Hills. But on Elle.com he has some sound advice for new designers:
The #1 point I always stress to young designers is POINT OF VIEW. I’ve seen so many young designers come and go because they were busy trying to chase the trends of the moment versus doing something that was innately their strength. If you are true to yourself, others will take note. Otherwise, everyone can smell a fake a mile away. I have to believe the clothes I see. Take for example, someone like Marc Jacobs. (Yes even he was considered a young designer at one point.) When Marc showed his infamous grunge collection for Perry Ellis, it was a turning point in his career. He may have lost his job over it, but by sticking to his point of view, he gained a legion of loyal fashion followers instead, and that collection remains one of the most talked about today, even 20 years later---and that collection was ultimately very Marc. Then you have someone more recent like Jason Wu, who has taken his refinement and elegance to a new level, doing important, history-making dresses for the First Lady. You can always tell when Mrs. Obama is wearing a chic Wu. Again, point of view.
