For the first time in years, I left New York right in the middle of Fashion Week. I’m writing to you from Milan, where I’ve come to celebrate the OMEGA (it’s all caps, apparently!) exhibit, as well as the beginning of a collaboration with the brand.
Wednesday was a big day. I visited the exhibit, which tells the story of OMEGA watches (many of them are real works of art), I spoke in front of an audience (again!), I gave interviews — and I also met Nicole Kidman, who has been OMEGA’s ambassador for nearly ten years.
During the interviews, I was asked how I choose the brands I collaborate with. It’s an interesting question, and the answer is quite simple. My team, my agent, Delphine, and I, we choose brands we believe in, brands we use every day, or brands we find interesting and that give us the opportunity to do new, never done before, different things. And, with Omega, that was certainly the case.
I can’t wait to tell you more but, for now, we are going to start with the launch of their website, Time For Her. I wrote for the site, and it’s going to highlight the world of OMEGA women — artists, athletes, astronauts… Women who are totally fascinating.
What about Nicole?
Well, how to put it. She’s a real superstar — probably one of the last of her kind. She’s sweet, mysterious, veeeeery tall, very elegant, very professional, and everyone loves her. I had the opportunity to have dinner with her at a gala celebrating the exhibit, and I found her to be very down to earth and kind.
On that note, I’m already about to leave for New York again. Two days in Europe and I’m off on another flight? Probably a tiny glimpse into what Nicole’s life must be like…
