MMM..Narciso Rodriguez Perfume..Oh, and Some Celebs
I attended a fashion show last week that was pretty typical of an L.A. celebrity event: A DJ spun the soundtrack, which ranged from Nikka Costa to Hall & Oates and back to some funk and soul from Soul II Soul and Dwele (it was pure genius!). Every trend that is on the "Hot for Fall" list (or will be by the time you finish reading this) was represented - from skinny jeans paired with puffy bombers and up-to-there leather boots to white mini frocks with black beading and studs (which I'm lov-ing, by the way). On a couch in front of me there was a certain celebutante powdering her nose before the photographers had their way with her; and milling around were dozens of (oddly) good-looking cocktail servers offering up drinks mixed with the alcoholic sponsor of the night. And then there was yours truly, sitting alone on a couch, wrist to nose, inhaling the intoxicating scent of the Narciso Rodriguez for Her I'd sprayed on before leaving the house that evening. I'm not even kidding! I was completely unaffected by the chaos that ensued when cast members of a popular NBC series started showing up and I couldn't care less about the photographers' bulbs flashing at the L.A. socialites seated next to me. I was in a deliciously delirious state of olfactory ecstasy, transfixed by the soft, velvety musky-yet-somehow-clean-and-floral fragrance perfection. Seriously, I couldn't get enough of myself. Oh, and the fashion show was great too.
