My definition of the American Dream is the New York Fashion Week. I loved the two-piece belly top concept in the Calvin Klein Collection, either in blue with a knee-length skirt or in black with ankle-length pants. I loved Ralph Lauren as well, because of its unmistakable fidelity to the RL style. Moreover, the use of velvet was very elegant, baroque somehow. But what I loved above all, was the return of Mr. Galliano. Though unofficially, he is there. He is collaborating with Oscar de la Renta and this was high time for him to return and it was high time for us to have him back. Fashion needs Galliano.. Urgently. Looking forward to London.

However, if you do not expect absolutely nothing, there is where things change dramatically. An usual trip might be one of the best you had in a long time.

What an elegant, breathtaking and terrific place! I wish I could move in there immediately. The spirit of greatness, attention to de…
St. Moritz. Top of the world. Well, in fact I think it's somehow even over the top. Is there any other place I would like to spend my winter time? Definitely not. Beautiful nature mixed with extraordinary luxury and champagne climate: best hotels, best restaurants, the quality of life - just magic. Insane, yet stunning, crazy, but super peaceful. What reality? This is real.

I am crazy, and by crazy I mean crazy, in love with the Carlton Hotel St. Moritz. Besides the amazing Carlo Rampazzi interiors, breathtaking suites, all with lake view and awesome spa, another Carlton pearl is Da Vittorio. A restaurant with 18 Gault&Millau points and one Michelin Star. My dinner there was definitely one of the top highlights of the past season.
There is probably only one right ingredient when it comes to food and life. It's PASSION. Whatever you do, if you have no fire burning inside you, you're a dead man Babe. And if you are very lucky you …
