Gucci in DC: US Air loses $50,000 worth of luggage

CLICK TO SEE STORY ON WUSA9 TV

The heir to the GUCCI dynasty was in DC during his first visit to the US. 83 year old Giorgio Gucci spoke on Capitol Hill on the issue of the black market. He urged leaders to pass stronger counterfeit laws and follow through with enforcement. An unfortunate fashion note… Gucci addressed the crowd in an emergency buy… an untailored, slightly too big Jos. A Bank suit. The designer scrambled to find something to wear after US Airways lost $50,000 worth of his luggage! Gucci himself did not seem rattled. I was impressed with his graciousness.

Highlights from the forum included an outstanding performance by opera sensation Cristina Fontinelli who sang the National Anthem. Rep. Diane E. Watson was honored as well for her push to protect designers and fashion commerce. I was honored to emcee the talk that included great insight from expert panelists Jean Bonilla, Caroyl Miller and Steve Hilson. The Greater Washington Chamber of Commerce and Emperor Brands hosted the forum.

Check out my interview with him about what he thought about his first visit to the Nation’s Capitol.  I’ll be airing more video on the WUSA9 Morning Show Friday. Tune in.

DC Cupcakes Premiere Party & Screening

TLC threw a small affair at the Ritz-Carlton Georgetown to celebrate and screen the latest reality show to come out of the Washington: DC Cupcakes.  Based of the small cupcake business that has made monumental booms in just two years the series is part of the network’s summer lineup. In addition to indulging in the sweet treats which were everywhere you turned… we got a sneak peak at the show’s first episode set to air this Friday at 10PM.  Look for some sisterly tension in the series opener along with some cute ‘mommy’ humor and one particular character Andres who steals the show and has some pretty awesome hair.

SAVE YOUR WET CELL THIS ST. PATRICK’S
Whether you’re trying to survive another year or the biggest drinking day on the calendar I hope it’s a good one.  My gift to you: Tips courtesy of the Geek Squad on saving your wet cell phone after it falls into a mug of green stuff! C’mon.. we’ve all been there.
1) Turn off phone and remove battery
2) Dry the phone (inside & out) with clean cloth
3) Check if you have beef jerky or uncooked rice
4) If Beef Jerky take the silica packet and put it in an airtight container with the phone and leave it overnight. If rice, pour the rice inside the airtight container and put your phone in the rice and leave overnight.
5) Replace battery and turn it on!

Because I know you all look at pictures first anyone who can figure out why Bisnow’s Mike Ponticelli has a personalized Hanky Panky with BM on it please speak up. Boys and girls got their bedroom bedazzle on for Becky’s Fund at the W Hotel. The Pre-Valentine party raised more than brows… it raised a lot of money for Becky’s fight to end domestic violence. Spotted: Nationals President Stan Kasten, Politico’s Kiki Ryan, Style expert  Toni Leinhardt.
