The thing that I found most incredible about Petra is that she is just as beautiful on the inside. She is so warm and sweet and lovely. She divides her time equally between work and her philanthropic endeavors, mainly her charity, The Happy Hearts Fund, which is a non-profit that rebuilds schools and restores hope in the lives of children after natural disasters. It was an honor to get to work with her! You can only imagine how happy I was when she called to have me fit her again for the Fashion Cares Gala in Toronto, Ontario (my hometown!).
New York Vintage is one of my favorite stores in New York City and the owner, Shannon, has become a good friend and source of support. I met her when I was assisting Rachel Zoe and have continued to pull amazing vintage from her for my clients. Lena Dunham wore a 1940s French couture gown to the premiere of GIRLS in New York; Stacy Keibler wore a vintage Alaia to the premiere of Argo. When I saw the vintage Alaia gown on the rack, I knew that Petra needed to wear it, and as you can see in the episode, I was right! It looked sensational on Petra and was perfect for this type of event. When you know, you know!
Watching Hannah with Petra was priceless. I don’t think I have ever seen Hannah freak out so much for someone. Clearly she has good taste in clothes, men (her boyfriend is super cute), and women!
You handled Thomas professionally, direct-without anger and not personal or below the belt. Nice job.
I had the opportunity to catch up on all the shows that I missed, thanks to Bravo. And I must say that I adore you and Gary. Brad, you are so talented. You, Gary and you're team are a class act. I cried when I saw the gift that Gary gave you for your Anniversary. In fact, I saw it twice and it affected me the same way each time. Must admit that I also watch the "Rachel Zoe" show and hope that both of you will succeed in your endeavors. Happy for a new season. Will not miss any of the shows. By the way, it's so refreshing to watch something so exciting, fun and entertaining!!!
