This was my first time meeting Catherine Malandrino, who said she was a big fan also, with (my big sister in my head) Mary J. Blige. I love her! She always gives me nothing but love! I can see why Catherine and Mary work together; they both seem very much alike. Malandrino’s collection was based on tribes—fantastic colors and amazing accessories.
Mary J. Blige, Russell Simmons and I at the Gucci/FFAWN party. Another great event endorsed by Mary J. Blige and Gucci. I support a number of great charities (Virgin Unite, DAA) and this is one benefit that is great because the proceeds go to community projects specifically for young girls from the Bronx and Yonkers (where Mary’s from). That’s a great way to give back.
