very vera

today we attended the launch of vera wang's first fragrance called, er, vera wang and vera wang for men. it was held at the glorietta 4 hallway beside bon apetit. that's an actual vera wang gown, left, described as "oyster duchess strapless satin A-line gown with side gather at bust at bodice and back tie train." so we got to try the fragrances, both for men and women, and they both smell good (someone even said she actually uses the men's variant).





and we listened to the requisite speeches of the principals...

and we watched vera on video talk about the fragrances...
and patiently waited as the model in vera wang unveiled the fragrance, walked around and spritzed our wrists (there was a male model too...)...
but the most bizarre thing was this man we met who looked like he didn't belong there. too bad we didn't take a pic of him (and why would we ??) because we would post it and say to all PRs and events people: ban this man! apparently he is a professional gatecrasher. he lurks the different malls and attends launches held at malls and eats and drinks and schmoozes (more like mooches) like he belongs there! this time he was wearing a bright green floral shirt (you would think he would dress more inconspicuously) and mingled with the "lady guests," but as soon as he would turn his back, we would all ask each other, who the hell is he?? well, we forget his name (why would we remember it??), but he's probably in his late 50s/early 60s, with gray hair and a paunch (parang pulis), and he said he works for mettro magazine. no, that's not a typo. before we could ask, oh, so you work with so-and-so, he specified, "it's spelled with a double T." double T?? "it stands for trash and traffic." we swear, he really did say that!! beware!
