Game On for GRAMMYS

 Since Thursday morning at 6 a.m., green tea latte in hand, Mercedes Benz Fashion Week has been front and center on my MacBook Pro.

It wasn't long before texture/pattern/color overload kicked in while I listened, in between shows, lanky fashion types live streaming and lying about "how busy they've been".

Yeah, sure.


Friday morning, day two of runway reality was barely underway and then...

 DEFCON FIVE ( meaning least severe - at least to me )

my FB inbox was blowing up.

"Grammys" this, "Grammys" that, was the theme of most messages - and then I realized:

 "Oh shit! The Grammys are this weekend?!"

My deep distaste for red carpet styling has me in deep denial the entire duration of awards season.

Fed up with the fake smiles of former A-now-B-/listers ranting about why she "isn't 25 anymore", ( which only leads to violent thoughts for me - a serious house plant killer ).

So, when I see the desperation of a newly hired assistant who won't be eating until she finds a stylist to resuscitate her boss' red carpet style ( aka comeback couture ) via private message...

Well let's just say, you don't need to know someone to know someone.

You know?

Needless to say, the couture gods intervened, apparently my work was not yet finished ( as a stylist ) and I was suckered into last minute, red carpet styling.


So now, my Malibu mantra is to play my cosmic cards right and hopefully I will never have to style another awards event in this lifetime.

I  will actually burn sage over it.

 The Universe did reward me for my styling sacrifice with a surprise pre Grammy lunch on the ocean the next day with my good buddy Bill.

He caught me up on star studded stories from Sundance... and further enlightening me that there is indeed six degrees of separation between me and Kurt Cobain ( read about it here and here )...

...and now Courtney Love

 Bill continued to tell me about his late night noshin' ( at Mel's Diner on Sunset only hours before ) with Grammy greatness, music legend Quincy Jones.

and now this Malibu P.R. Gal is set up for a cool collab with hip hop legends Naughty By Nature.

So I guess I'll be gettin' my naughty on...

Can you Feel Me Flow?
