I am so mad today....

A lot of what happens in NYC is insane. It is amazing what people will do to protect their little social bubble, ( without knowing the other person in this case ) including subtle digs that are so obvious to the more sensitive soul. Exclusive versus Inclusive Attitude.
It is fine, I always say live and let live, but when I witness this kind of stupidity and narrow-mindedness, it just makes my blood boil.
I always have been about extending a hand, connecting people and creating an environment that is inclusive, no matter if you are a school teacher, cab driver, butcher, artist or the richest, most beautiful person in the world, whatever it might be.
It is about helping, generosity and mutual understanding in my world.
I am happy that I was able to create the way I live on my own terms, never having to care about other peoples opinion. I have been very blessed in that way, coming from nothing and being able to still do what I set out to do, creating a life on my own terms.
And I am not saying I am perfect, all I am saying is that I recognized a long time ago that life is fair in a way, everybody gets dumped, dissed, talked about, fired, looses loved ones and so on and so forth... the list is endless. We are all people with our own problems, so to treat some people that way and someone else another because they are not on the social register or your last name is not "good enough" is disgusting to me.
Fake, Fake, Fake.
No matter what your last name is, good manners are free, they don't cost you a penny.
So you guys go here and I stay where I am, this too shall pass, I can't help you because stupidity doesn't discriminate.

You talking to me...?

Me for Titiana Inglis

My friend Titiana Inglis asked me to model for her new lookbook A/W 2010. She presented them tonight in a gallery space in the East Village and so many people turned up. I am really flattered she chose me to be a part of her vision. I admit, stood in the middle of the room and enjoyed the moment... who wouldn't?
She is a really talented designer and has such an amazing vision. We had less than 2 hours to shoot these images, and that's how I like it. No wasting time and messing about; pose, point and shoot. I love the pictures. The photographer was Red de Leon.
