“How to be a perfect gentleman” Could have been the title of this post. There’s no other way to think about Derek Blasberg when you encounter him.
Watch Derek hanging out with women and you know what it means to be a perfect gentleman :
– Make women feel self confident
– Listen to them more than you talk to them
– Make them laugh
– Respect their opinion
– Be honest even if you hurt their feelings
– « Put your feet in their shoes »
– Hold their arm
– Open the doors for them
– Let them chose for the sit
– Pay for the restaurant (even if you had to take a loan, lol)
– Entertain them through your culture beyond sport, be curious !
All those qualities must not be misinterpreted with being a servant. Your honesty and respect is what makes the difference.
I don’t post That many pictures of men on Style and the City and I should correct this.
If a « Gentleman Award » existed, I would give it without an hesitation to Derek Blasberg. And I know that Poppy Delevingne and Jessica Seinfeld would agree without a doubt.
Firstly : I virtually never saw him without a gorgeous woman holding his arm. Secondly : they look so happy with him. They smile, they laugh, they feel empowered. Just check out his Instagram account to see it by your own : http://instagram.com/derekblasberg
To me, he is like Don Draper without the flaws, lol. No wonder why he has so many female friends.
Derek, have you ever considered writing a book about being a gentleman in the 21st century ? Because when I take the New York subway, it is obvious to me that millions men should read this book before taking thé subway. Dear women, don’t you agree ? Shouldn’t Derek write this book ? Derek, you have your first reader (Can I have an autograph ?) . Have a great Paris Fashion Week Derek.
At Ralph Lauren, I was more than happy to see the naturally beautiful Spanish stylist Barbara Martelo. Someone on Instagram used her name to create a fake account. I am happy that she was able to get her name back. You can follow her on Instagram here : http://instagram.com/barbaramartelo
Alexandra Pereira, the pretty stylish fashion blogger from Lovely Pepa was here too. After photographers took millions pictures of her, I just ask her to relax a little bit. That’s when I took her in picture to capture her natural charm. You can follow her on Instagram too here : http://instagram.com/lovelypepa
Ho Many time I told you that pregnancy was making women gorgeous, shining. Want another prove ? Just enjoy Eva Chan‘s smile ! You can follow her too on Instagram her : http://instagram.com/evachen212
Some brands try to take opportunity of the Fashion week to promote themselves. It was quite funny to see a sunglasses brand ask the great Bill Cunningham to wear on some crazy sunglasses. I was their and watching him wearing them made me ask if Bill was not an X-MEN !
“Look at Me Bill !”
I’ll post way more pictures in the coming days rom Ralph Lauren and other shows where I had the opportunity to meet the gorgeous Ilona Selina that you can follow on Instagram here : http://instagram.com/routelondonnewyork?modal=true
