After Stockholm, I stopped in Paris for another celebration of the “GLOSS: The Work of Chris von Wangenheim” fashion book by authors Mao Padilha and Roger Padilha. The Padilha brothers reunited a small group of friends – Maripol, Gia Genevieve, Emily Elicia Low, Allanah Starr, Victor Osborne…- for an early cozy dinner at the legendary Castel, followed by a dancing party at the basement of this iconic private club where other fans of the MAO PR brand joined in to the continuing celebration that started in New York City with the big bash, during New York Fashion Week, thrown by Marc Jacobs, to honor Mao and Roger’s formidable work.
I had a lovely time during dinner with Emily and Gia, who sat next to me. It was a fun evening. The next day Mao and Roger had a book signing at the Bookmarc store in Paris . I wonder where will be the next party stop? 😀

It was indeed a lot of fun the small party at the Jane Hotel where some of the beautiful people from downtown NY got together to celebrate Mao Padilha ‘s birthday. Models, artists, socialites, icons…it was just pure glamorous chaos. I even got dressed up as you can see it on the photo below (yes, I was taking a bathroom break). Amanda Lepore performed for the birthday PR boy…and what a monkey cake !!
