Fragola Showroom: Upscale clothing … discount prices

So, a couple of weeks ago the ladies of FourPlayGo (@mrsoaround the world @lolastravels and @jetsetextra) and I did a whole glam makeover and photo shoot with some of my favorite West Hollywood Glam Makers.  Maleeza of Fragola Showroom supplied venue, clothes, shoes and campagne;  Charles Hopkins did the photography; Cat did the syling; and Lyric did hair & makeup.  Celebrity jeweler David outfitted us in jewels.  Photos from that shoot are coming … and here are some from the entire trip.

I really wanted them to feel MY West Hollywood … i.e. Vanity Girl For the Day!

If you want in on the action, Maleeza is having an IN-SANE sale this weekend.  Designer names … low low prices.  Tell her VanityGirl sent you and Happy Shopping!  Make sure to Instagram me if you pick anything up @VanityGirlHollywood.

Maxine @VanityGirl at Perez Hilton’s Pajama Party

I love my JetsetExtra family.  Not only do I get to go on location with them, but as their Hollywood Insider I cover a lot of fun events and Red Carpets here in Tinsel Town.

And say what you want about Perez Hilton, he has taken celebrity blogging to a whole other level AND is a personality in his own right.  As a new Dad, he’s definitely showing a kinder, softer side and have you seen the bod lately?  Someone’s been hittin’ the gym in-between midnight feedings!

Anyhoo – we were invited to his Birthday Party which he did Pajama Style.  It was a lot of fun, here were some of the highlights:


The Elmo Onesie was a big hit with the guys.

Adrienne Maloof was Über sexy with a La Perla nod to Old School Hollywood Glam.

Sassy MJ of Shahs of Sunset was in head to toe Victoria Secret and Loubitans.

Jetset Stylist Jeannie Mai wore her pajama pants from Vietnam and a bustier and white jacket.

Jordan Sparks said that boyfriend Jason Derulo always wears his hat (how cute are they BTW?)

Sophie T. Simmons wore Victoria Secret with Jimmie Choo’s.

I rocked Jose Natori and my 1950’s roller do hair by Tanya of Untamed Instincts on Melrose was a hit.


Perez said his next trip was going to be US, probably Miami since he has the little one to consider.

Dancing With the Stars’ Mark Ballas completely charmed me when he spoke Japanese to me (no, I’m not Japanese but I took a post-college Gap Year there and absolutely loved it.)

Sophie just got back from North Carolina, and she says she loved it.

Jeannie Mai said her favorite fashion city is Singapore!

Celebrity Stylist Phu Styles said that her favorite fashion cities are NYC, Miami (lots of love for Miami that night), LA, Paris, Milan and Tokyo.

More later!

AZATURE :: Champagne & Chocolate


This has been a very bubbly week indeed. Tuesday’s girl’s lunch at the Sunset Tower was accompanied by a glass of champagne. Last night we were treated to an intimate dinner at the beautiful Wolfgang Puck private dining room at the Hotel Bel Air by the GM of the Mondrian Oriental Hong Kong (the oldest hotel in Hong Kong by the way) … and champagne flowed freely the moment we stepped onto the gorgeous, torch-lit outdoor terrace.

And what better way to celebrate champagne than paired with fine chocolate? These luxury confections are brought to you by the same designer who plays with black diamonds. They began as a “thank you” for his celebrity clientele, but were so popular that he decided to extend his brand.

And I for one, am really glad he did.


Jetsetting with Johan Ernst Nilson on the Pole2Pole Expedition

One of the things I love my most in my role as the Hollywood Insider and Host with JetsetExtra is all the interesting people I get to meet. This is Johan Ernst Nilson who is literally going from the North to the South Pole on mostly manpower alone (yep, like bikes, kayaks,ski). My friend/producer and owner of JSE MaryAnne (I often refer to her as MB) set up the interview and by the time Johan was done regaling us with his tales, we kind of had hearts in our eyes.

It’s always fascinating to meet people who are doing what they love and blazing new trails. When he left our studio in Burbank, he said, “Gotta go. I’m biking to Mexico.”

Yeah – I’m an LA girl. I think hiking Runyon Canyon is a major feat lol.
