Rock in Fashion: My Night with John Varvatos & KISS

Posted: Updated:

Aren't I the lucky one? It was a night of rock and fashion at the invite-only book signing party for designer John Varvatos' awesome new coffee table-style book, John Varvatos: Rock in Fashion. (Seriously, it's a really cool book.)

The action took place at Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills and I spent about 15 minutes in one of the men's dressing rooms that was turned into a makeshift interview area where I chatted up John, Gene Simmons (who was feeling a bit under the weather, so we greeted each other with air kisses), Paul Stanley and the hilarious photog Mick Rock.

I'd worked with the KISS frontmen on "Good Day LA" before, but it was my first time meeting John and I was so glad to find that in addition to being extremely talented, he is such a down-to-earth gentleman. His looks are truly timeless and capture the rock aesthetic so perfectly. So I had to ask: "Are you going to design for women any time soon?"

Unfortunately, he said not a chance. Oh well, I'll settle for the book!

    How about a little lesson on conservation from Willie the Cat. Willie starts unrolling all of the paper until it is all on the floor. But you have to watch what happens next in this viral video.

    In 2013 the HTC One (M7) was one of my favs, so I was excited to see what the next gen model would be have in store. One word, "impressive!" Beautifully crafted, possibly the best on the market. Behold: HTC's One (M8)
