Vroom! Vroom! The stunning Alessandra Ambrosio was in Miami yesterday for the Victoria's Secret Bombshell summer tour. Not only was she on the pinkest motorcycle we've seen since playing with our Barbie mobile, she also reminded us that helmets can be sexy--if you know how to hold them. The tour ends on June 9th in Dallas, Texas with an appearance by Doutzen Kroes

This week, Sergio Kletnoy, gatekeeper to Marie Claire's EIC Joanna Coles, seeks solace in Sedaris, gets drenched on Memorial Day weekend, gets a lesson in Tim Gunn's trademark sass and has to (gasp!) pore over a PowerPoint presentation. Check out the Gallery for some great shots of the uber assistant's daily grind!

Saturday, 5 p.m.
Ahhhhh, the Hamptons. I’ve been looking forward to this trip with friends all week. It was a gloriously sunny day, seventy-five degrees, flowers blooming, birds singing— pure bliss. I needed this break. I spent most of the day poolside re-reading my all time favorite book Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris. After a stressful week at work, it felt good to lay out and stuff my face with sweets. Sedaris was so on the money when he said, “When sh*t brings you down, just say 'f**k it', and eat yourself some motherf**ing candy."

Sunday, 8:30 a.m.
Picture it: My second day in paradise, and four of us, plus a 2-year-old infant, wake up to find the water pump busted. I’m not doing it justice. When a water pump breaks, all hell breaks loose. No showers. No running water. No toilets. No cooking. It brought back vivid memories of my childhood in Mother Russia, when taking a shower required visiting the luxurious public bathhouse every week, bar of soap in hand. Who’d have thought that on my five-star weekend in Southampton, I’d be reliving the good old days of Communism!

Monday, 3 p.m.
I did what every red blooded American does on Memorial Day: I shopped my ass off at Target, the greatest store on earth.

Tuesday, 3:35 p.m.
Everyone always thinks that I do nothing but attend exclusive parties, interview celebs and shop 'til I drop. Sometimes, that is the case, but I do manage to squeeze in some real work in-between all of my exciting shenanigans. I spent most of my morning and afternoon preparing a PowerPoint presentation for THE BOSS to present at the Marie Claire Sales Conference. So I grabbed a plateful of spicy tuna crunch rolls, straight from the Hearst cafeteria, and got to work arranging hundreds of slides, patiently waiting for the day to end.  In between prepping JoCo’s presentation, I was finally able to edit my interview with the funniest comic EVER: the in-your-face, take-no-prisoners, Sarah Palin-hating, racy, confrontational, cynical, and best of all, highly offensive Sandra Bernhard. Next week, Ms. Bernhard is performing at Town Hall, with special guests Rufus Wainwright and Liza OMFG Minnelli. This is one show real New Yorkers should not miss!

Wednesday, 2:20 p.m.
Amanda Hearst
and I grabbed lunch at the Hearst cafeteria with Tim Gunn. (Tim, by the way, was wearing the most pimptastic navy suit with purple pinstripes, purple gingham shirt and paisley pocket square, he was definitely making it work!)  Afterwards, I brought Tim upstairs to say hi to THE BOSS and meet some of his fans. But before he left, he was kind enough to school me and Amanda on his trademark this worries me pose. I’m saving it for the next time I get my Amex bill.

Thursday, 8 p.m.
Tonight, Marie Claire hosted a dinner at Desmond’s in honor of THE BOSS and MC’s fashion director Nina Garcia. The room was packed with JoCo’s fabulous fashion friends, including Simon Kneen of Banana Republic, Kenneth Cole, Maria Cornejo, Tim Gunn, and Georgina Chapman and Karen Craig of Marchesa. THE BOSS was decked out in a linen white suite by Ralph Lauren, python-print top by Lanvin and Chloe cork platforms. Usually, I’m the one snapping photos at events like these, but this time around, I was the lucky guy holding THE BOSS’ brand new 2Bag by FENDI the entire night.

We spend a lot of our day looking at pics on Patrick McMullan, Billy Farrell and Getty Images, so we're rather familiar with who can work a pose and who can not. Olivia Wilde, you could teach red carpet school. While this picture of her last night at the Fresh Air Fund's Salute to American Heroes at Pier 60 isn't even on a red carpet (Hello, car in the background!), theThor actress has it all down.

Even the Ruffian boys deserve a break from Chic reporting, so in honor of their hiatus this week, we're bringing back a now (tears) vintage video of our first collaboration together. We hit their studio just over a year ago to get their take on who is and who is not a true Ruffian. Bieber? Efron? Lagerfeld? Do you remember? And...Stay tuned for Chic's very first spelling bee. Must see!

How about something pleasant to digest as the week winds down? Christopher Gorham (AKA adorable Henry from Ugly Betty) reveals to Da Man magazine who the sexiest person he's ever worked with is. Drumroll….Naomi Campbell! "She once was on Ugly Betty (the Season 2 finale, in 2008) for an episode, and we’d all heard the stories, but, you know, she was incredibly nice," he reveals. "She was soooo sexy and didn’t really have this attitude that the press makes it out to be. At least she was pleasant to me, but yeah, definitely, she was stunning." How crushy!

Take this! It's the news we've all been waiting for…Robbie Williams is getting into fashion! (Drop the confetti, Bob!) The cheeky British hottie is releasing a menswear line this fall that's inspired by his grandfather Jack Farrell. The line, Farrell, will be available at House of Fraser stores and online at Shopdirect.com. Sources revealed to Sky News that the line will have a "heritage feel combined with a modern style." Whatever that means.
