Chic Report loves to learn so we've asked Norwegian designer Elise Overland to translate a few of our favorite words and phrases into her native language. We'll be fluent in Norwegian in no time. Now repeat each phrase 10 times, and then go drink some glogg.

LESSON 1:  "Snug Rapport" (Chic Report!)

LESSON 2: "Fashion uke." (fashion week)

LESSON 3: Jeg har ikke hatt en kveld hjemme i månedsvis." (I have not had a night at home in months.)

After blowing his art budget at Art Basel, Adam Lippes was back to bid for charity at the 15th Annual Holiday Dinner benefiting the AIDS Community Research Initiative of America (ACRIA) Thursday night. Chic chat!

So what’d you have for lunch today?
I had Manhattan clam chowder and they make these lobster rolls without mayonnaise for me. Not like a roll on a hot dog bun, I love that but I’m trying to lose weight for Brazil, but a lobster roll with rice, like a sushi one at the Fish Market in the Chelsea Market.
When are you going to Brazil?
Over the holidays. I'm going to the north first, then after the New Yorkers leave Rio, I'll go there. I want to move there and open a hotel and just...live. But not while I’m dedicated to our brand. After. But I don’t want to do Rio anymore because all of New York is in Rio so I want to do something where they’re not.
What kind of hotels do you like to stay at?
Luxuries, but really relaxed ones. With a really hot staff. It’s important!
Are you single?
Yes, and totally in the market. I’ve been dating a lot of youngsters in their early twenties, and I’m moving away from that now. I want someone who’s age appropriate. Not more than 10 years younger, someone who has a job, and who is really smart and can expand my world.

Quote of The Daily: Haider Responds to the Karl Love!

The Kaiser! The Kaiser!

I think Mr. Lagerfeld said something that was a really nice compliment. But I think people should take it as he took it: a compliment. No more, no less. And the man is still there, and he’s not retiring. Trust me on that one.  We know each other and we really respect each other. I spent last Saturday with him, and it’s a pleasure to be with such a person, because he is so very generous, and he’s got so many things to tell you. You can only just absorb and observe.”—Haider Ackermann at Thursday night's Bulgari bash in Paris, responding to the Kaiser's offhand comment that he should be the next designer at Chanel.

In today's edition, Resin designer Chantel Valentene shares her obsessions.

1. Black Swan! It made me fall in love with all things Natalie Portman again. Love her in W mag's May 2005 issue, which I pulled out from my stack. Love her SNL spoof. She's my girl crush right now.

2. Veggie burgers and "The Bad Seed" drink from Black Market.

3. I just discovered Role Gold pretzels and nutella. A combination from heaven.

4. Jameson and a grilled cheese with a side of pickles.

5. Walking through Nolita on Saturday afternoon to get the fish sandwich from Cafe Habana.
