Episode 6: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor breaks down Brad's best pearls of wisdom.

Holy sexy, shirtless swimsuit models, Batman! Admittedly it was hard to focus on anything like lessons about life or fashion when that kind of Italian beef is being paraded about. But somehow I've managed to scrounge together a list of some learnings from this week's Milan adventures.

So forget the museums and restaurants when you're in Milan, just head straight to the DSQUARED2 offices. That's evidently where they're keeping the true treasures of Italy. And by that I mean hot Italian models parading around in what may be the world's skimpiest swimwear. Now I understand why Brad wanted to swing by Dan and Dean Caten's studio (besides networking and building a relationship, etc.). And while that blazer Dan and Dean gave Brad was awesome, I kind of would have died had they given Brad a matching swimsuit set for him and Gary. Nothing says Europe quite like a good Speedo.

Don't let Gary take photos. Or at least don't let Gary drink tons of Italian espresso and then try and take a photo. He must have taken about twenty of the same photo of Brad. And while I could see that maybe Brad would be a bit more picky about how it comes out since it was for his Details blog, I can't imagine that it would have taken so many shots get one decent picture. It did make for yet another cute couple moment between Brad and Gary though.

A Real Kick

In addition to stopping by the DSQUARED2 offices, you should probably take in a DSQUARED2 fashion show as well. Brad went to a number of great shows in Milan, but only DQUARED2 had sexy swimwear and a choreographed dance routine involving high kicks. And that's really how you leave a memorable impression. You want people to think that in your clothes you too will be ripped and be able to perform incredible acrobatic feats with the greatest of ease.

Sheer Terror with Coco Rocha

Brad dishes on his minor panic attack during Coco's fitting.

Let me start off by saying I love my new house so much! We have now been living in it for almost six months, and every day I pinch myself to see if it is real. I have been busy decorating with the help of our friend and interior designer, Sal Messina. The house is really starting to take shape and we are so happy here! Penelope especially!

I have been a big fan of Coco Rocha’s for many, many years. I have seen her walk in runway shows, pose like no other in photo shoots, and naturally follow her every move on Twitter and Instagram. When I got the call the she needed some help selecting her look for the premiere of her TV show The Face, I pretty much jumped up and down. I wanted her to have THE best choices to choose from, and I kid you not, when we were pulling we couldn't believe how many things were sheer, but we thought that would be right up Coco's alley. Boy was I wrong! I usually have a good gauge for what people are going to love, so when she said she didn't wear anything sheer, I almost passed out. One thing I have learned in this industry is that you cannot be part of the problem, you have to be part of the solution. So I presented all of the options that I thought were the strongest and went from there. We ended up finding options not only for her premiere, but also for press appearances.She stunned on the night of the premiere! It was a really amazing red carpet moment! Not to mention I have been doing A, E, I, O, U since we filmed in November, and it has changed my life! It was an absolute honor working with Coco. I adore her!

As if that wasn't enough excitement for this gay Canadian boy, I got a call from Noot Seear who is also Canadian, also a top model, and also an actress. She has launched an amazing line of headphones called FRENDS! They are fashion meeting function at its finest! She wanted the shoot to look high fashion, but also look like her, so it was a fine balance to match all of those things together. I wanted to show different styles to reflect the different types of women who would be wearing the headphones, so we had the bohemian girl, the indie girl, glamour girl, rocker girl, and girlie girl. It’s so fun to work with new clients and see their reaction to what you have pulled for them and want to see them in. Noot was so incredibly happy with the job we did, and the shots turned out AMAZING! It was a pleasure working with her and I wish her tons of success with her headphones!So much Canadian love! Can you handle it?

On next week’s episode of Brad World, we go to Dubai! It's NEXT LEVEL!
