Claire's Life: Murakami Exhibit

So last night I made my way to the Murakami opening gala at the Brooklyn Museum. I live *really* close to the venue, so basically there's no way it was going to happen without yours truly in the house....
It was a pretty cool event, full to the brim with Francophiles and the requisite Japanese socialites. I had to snippy snap a few pix:
Marc Jacobs loves the Fashion Bomb...
So does Kanye (who performed!)....he was the sweetest man, even though this picture makes him look sad...
And I had to take a picture with man of the hour, Takashi Murakami. We know of him for his rainbow colored Louis Vuitton bags, but he's so much more than that. I hope all of you check out his exhibit in my backyard, the Brooklyn Museum. He's so so so dope.
Um. That does it!
I'm gonna rest up for the weekend:) I'm a mess.
Smootches!

I love Takashi Morikami! His work is full of life and playful. Colorful as well. Kanye speaks for himself. And Marc Jacobs is amazing!! You are one blessed lady!

I know it's way too presumptious to assume just because you took a picture with him, but do you know how to get in touch with Marc Jacobs? I am interested in a career in the fashion industry after I graduate from college next year, and I love Marc! It would be sooooo great if you did and could hook me up. Smootches!

P.S. I'm a part of your Facebook group if you wanna leave me a message.

Ebony said...

OK...so, I'll just reiterate everyone else's sentiments- MARC JACOBS!!!!! Btw, ladies, his new fragrance, Daisy, is a killer!

IDK, Claire...girl, you might be fashion elite!
