Backstage at the Brian Reyes Spring 2010 presentation I introduced myself to Becki Newton.
Her eyes widen as she asked “You’re the one who shows everyone one the red carpet That’s you? Oh my god.”
I started to search through my memory bank wondering if I had said anything bad about Becki, but I assured myself that I hadn’t and she continued, “Oh my god, you do such a great job.”
She introduced me to her stylist Annie, who also works at Elle, as Becki informed me that she introduced Annie to my blog. Annie told me that everyone in her office reads my blog.
Wow. My mind was blown. It was a real OMG moment.
Becki had said to Annie that my blog is a good way of tracking what everyone else is wearing.
Just when I thought she couldn’t compliment me anymore Becki said, “We love you. Do you understand that it’s the go to reference, you do an absolutely great job.”
“It’s dignified, but it still has humour which I really like because it’s funny, you don’t take it too seriously.”
With a twinkle in her eye she said, “Even when you’re not feeling it, you’re usually right…even when it’s me, so great job.
