My darling friend photographer Frederico Mendes invited me to come to the launch of Arpoador, a photograph book about one of the most beautiful beach areas in Rio de Janeiro, with articles by writer Gilberto Braga. The event was at the Arnaldo Danemberg Antiquario; located in the uber chic Chopin building in Copacabana. It was a super packed cocktail party with the beautiful people of Rio de Janeiro. I had the best time dressed head to toe in the Brazilian label Neon. Yes, I even made it to the second book of Globo; the biggest newspaper in Brazil…fun, fun, fun !!
