"I'm awesome because I am not afraid to fall,
nor ashamed to stumble.
Because I never wanted to be beautiful,
and I never pretended to be."

Highlight of the CFDA Awards:

The Alexander McQueen tribute at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards 2010 was definitely the showstopper of the night. After Jessica Sarah Parker did a little shpeal, a harem of models donning all of McQueen's last collection appeared before the CFDA audience and wow, I'm definitely beyond jealous. What a sight! Maybe one day I'll get serious about my blogging career (hah!) and be asked to vote and attend the CFDA (this year was the first time they gave such honor to bloggers; Bryan Grey-Yambao aka BryanBoy and  Rumi Neely from Fashion Toast)- a bro can dream.  

And congratulations to all the winners of the CFDA Awards too!
