It is no secret to you all that I am obsessed with Balenciaga, aka Nicolas Ghesquière, the man behind the label. I admit: I am groupie and I am proud of it. Nicolas turns out the unexpected in a surprisingly chic, fresh way. Yeah. He’s pretty much amazing.

I’ll play with his toys ANYTIME. This show, for me, was a veritable treasure chest of goodies.

I mean, it just kills me.

Nicolas (is up there with Chloë): I love you. Will you be my fwend?
