What I love most about LA is the weather and lifestyle, but it’s also about real fun and a huge break from my own reality. It is also about amazing taste in art, architecture and a true passion for design. I landed in LA on Friday night and had the rare opportunity to visit one of the most amazing houses I have ever seen… to say nothing of the art collection which it housed (if that is indeed the correct word). Was the specificity of the spaces built for the art or did the amazing architectural statement inspire the astonishing art installations?? After such a remarkable experience, we raced literally to dinner at Giorgio Baldi’s intimate Italian ‘couture’ Il Ristorante in Malibu where truffles were the treat of the night. Then to my friends Edward and Julie Minskoff’s new beach house right on the water with soaring ceilings, insane views, and tasteful sex appeal!!! Considering I began my day at Rockefeller Center skating rink watching my friend Evan Lysacek skate for the Today show to benefit charity… Friday was kind of an incredible way to begin the weekend!
