Azzedine Alaia's outspoken words about Anna Wintour ("Anna runs the business [of Vogue] very well, but not the fashion part. When I see how she is dressed, I don't believe her tastes one second. I can say it loudly! She hasn't photographed my work in years even if I am a best seller in the U.S. and I have 140 square meters at Barney's. American women love me; I don't need her support at all. Anna Wintour doesn't deal with pictures; she is just doing PR and business, and she scares everybody. But when she sees me, she is the scared one.") and Karl Lagerfeld ("Karl Lagerfeld never touched a pair of scissors in his life") inspired artist aleXsandro Palombo to, ahem, cook up this little sketch that was just delivered to our inbox. We're working on a Friday in summer, so thanks, darling. We needed this.

Marcalicious! So delicious. Don't tell Josh, but Fergie had her paws on her pal Marc Jacobs last night at the amfAR Inspiration Gala champagne reception in Paris last night. Mrs. Duhamel is wearing Louis Vuitton from the autumn/winter 2011-12 collection. Boom boom pow.

If you are sticking around the Big Apple this weekend, we have something for you to do besides ride on a rainbow float.

Look who we have here! While current Mugler creative director Nicola Formichetti was releasing his latest collection on Xtube, Thierry Mugler was on the town in New York partying it up. The still muscley designer snuggled Eva Mendes at the IAC building to celebrate her new campaign for the perfume Angel by Thierry Mugler. You won't be able to miss this campaign starting in September. Clarins is expected to spend at least $5 million on print and TV ads in the next 12 months. Zut alors!

Yesterday, we reported that Heidi Klum is baring (sorta) everything in order to promote the 32,125th season of Project Runway. But why should Heidi get all the publicity? Chic dares to dream of a day where her co-star Michael Kors gets the pin-up treatment. Darling, at least consider it!

Susannah Hoffs had it right—Sundays are fun days. My BFF Courtney and I spent the afternoon brunching with our friend Melissa, originally from Snookiville, but who’s turned into a Valley girl since she moved to L.A.-la land for a PR gig a few years ago. Our destination: PS 450 in Midtown. I had my usual five Bloody Mary’s and some genius concoction called Hangover Fries (huge plate of french fries covered in melted cheese, bacon, steak and two eggs), AKA a delish heart attack on a plate. A few hours later we had moved on to paradise, called 230 Fifth, a rooftop bar on 27th Street and 5th Ave. Apparently it’s THE place to go to for out-of-towners (don’t judge!). I’m glad this was the one time I wasn’t such a typical New York snob. The place was amazeballs—palm trees, cabanas, sunset, amazing views of the Empire State Building, great food and drinks. Who knew that something this perfect existed in what definitely ranks as my least favorite part of the city. After an endless number of Stellas and some finger-lickin’ good shrimp crackers, I was pooped and rushed home to watch Jerseylicious.
Monday, 3 p.m.
Hot blonde alert! Just met Anna Faris. First off, she is soooo Britney’s doppelganger—seriously, she could go on the road as BritBrit and no one would ever know! I totally ADORE her, and she made me laugh my ass off. After SJP practically begged me to be in the next Sex & The City movie last week, I was emboldened and offered up my Oscar-worthy acting skills to Anna. “How about a role in House Bunny 2?” I asked. “Sure, who do you want to play?” she answered. “Picky I am not, just make sure I’m not in drag—I’d make one busted lady!” We talked for a while, and she told me about her obsession with bees and her dreams of becoming a beekeeper someday (not kidding), her love of Doritos and Cheetos (there’s that Britney connection once again). And when I asked her if she prefers Bieber or Timberlake, the decision was too tough for her, so she chose to make out with Timberlake while holding Bieber’s hand. (This bunny’s funny, right?) Careful, Anna. Those Beliebers are not to be messed with.

At Bowery Ballroom watching Foster The People in concert. Doesn’t ring a bell? Trust me, you’ve likely heard their killer single Pumped Up Kicks. These guys are kick-ass live, and the venue was jam packed. I just wish the place wasn’t so full of too-cool-for-school hipsters who take credit for the band’s mega-popularity, nevermind those annoying frat types with beers in hand, singing along with the band like 15-year old girls.
Wednesday, 8 p.m.
Live from the Ed Sullivan Theatre… It’s Beady Eye! (a.k.a. Liam Gallagher’s new band). I was one of the lucky few who got the chance to see Liam & Co. devour the stage for almost an hour for the webcast series of Late Show with David Letterman. I brought my other BFF Vivian (I have three!), who, it’s worth noting, is a bit pissed at me for not mentioning her in the 14 weeks my column has been live. Hey, Viv, better late than never! (Your new official Sergio Says nickname is ‘Rican Viv!) Tonight’s concert was the place to be. After all, this is the same legendary theatre that welcomed The Beatles to America back in 1964. Fans waited outside for hours, and Beady Eye was so worth the wait. Liam sounded incredible and had the audience on their feet for the entire time. Check out the band’s debut, Different Gear, Still Speeding, a rock-out-loud, in your face album which will remind you why you fell in love with Oasis. PS—Liam Gallagher is the coolest rock star on the face of the planet.

Picture it: The Ritz Hotel, I’m in the lobby of one of New York’s poshest hotels waiting for my one-on-one with Liam F***** Gallagher. As expected, he pimp-walks in with his manager and publicist, and we make direct eye contact. Somebody wake me—I’m about to meet someone I’ve been a fan of since I was a teen. “I feel like a 12-year-old girl meeting Justin Bieber,” I say, shaking his hand, and explaining the dawn of my Oasis obsession—catching their Live Forever video on VH1 and how that essentially turned me into a complete anglophile. “And now you’ve turned into a pretty 35-year-old woman,” he laughs—I guess there are worse things in the world then being called a chick by Liam F**** Gallagher. Spying the three CDs he has clutched in his hand, I asked him if he always walks around carting various Beatles albums. “Just putting my list of my favorite Beatle songs for Rolling Stone. How the f*** am I supposed to do that when I like them all?” Dropping lots of F-bombs, we talked about his love of New York, touring and his new clothing line Pretty Green, which is finally available in New York City at Any Old Iron. He only designs stuff he would wear himself, so the collection is full of classic British threads—and since I’ve always wanted to look like Liam, now I can literally have the clothes off his back. I only wish I had his pretty locks.

ThisWeekImCompletelyObsessedWith.com: First off, JoJo, who I interviewed a few weeks ago. She no longer a 13-year old kid, but a grown up 20 year old who just recorded the most explosive single of her career. “Marvin’s Room (Can’t Do Better)” is a cover/response to Drake’s Marvin’s Room. Chills down my spine, on repeat all day, you must download now! Next up is Florrie, an English singer-songwriter, drummer and model. She has worked with Girls Aloud, Pet Shop Boys and Xenomania, the production team responsible for some of the biggest pop hits ever from Kylie, Bananarama, Sugababes, Texas & Cher. Her current single Experimenting With Rugs is pure pop bliss and I guess being drop dead beautiful doesn’t hurt either. The video looks like it was inspired by my fave, Madonna. My final obsession of the week is from Rye Rye featuring Robyn called Never Will Be Mine. Rye Rye is a dope Baltimore rapper and Robyn is MY ALL TIME FAVE Swede. The song samples Be Mine which was originally performed by Robyn back in 2005. Robyn’s original is A-MA-ZING and the 2.0 version is pretty damn hot too! If you haven’t heard it either, do yourself a favor and download them both. You’ll thank me later!
