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.

Beth Chose Function Over Fashion

Brad really didn't know which dress Beth Behrs was going to choose until the last minute.

Beth Behrs has been a client of mine since the Tony Awards this past June. We had such a great red carpet moment that night that we have been working together ever since.

I love Beth. She is very open to change, trying new things, and she trusts me 100%. Beth was attending the AmFar event in Los Angeles with the creator of the show she stars in "Two Broke Girls," so we wanted her to be sexy and sophisticated at the same time. At the end of the fitting, I usually know what a client is going to wear, but in this case, we had two very strong Armani options that were very different in feeling, but both appropriate for the occasion.



We had both of them prepared for her, and in the end she chose to wear the black velvet plunging neckline gown. This is a case where function over fashion won! We loved the strapless pearly grey architectural gown, but it was very restricting and would have been hard for her to sit in for the entire event. Some dresses are meant to be worn on the carpet only -- you take pictures and then get in your car and go home! It happens.

In the end she looked gorgeous, chic and sexy. Check!Getting a new house with Gary has been absolutely amazing! We have been talking about moving for about a year now, but I didn’t really ever think we would. First of all because we loved our old house so much, and secondly we couldn’t find a house that we liked enough to move into. Then we found THE ONE! We both knew this was it, and we put in an offer and bought it together. I also never thought I would be a homeowner either. I feel so grown up!


I wasn’t able to be at the move due to the fitting, but let me tell you, I was busy organizing, unpacking, and setting the house up. I cannot wait for you to see it! It's magical!
