Mick is a guy’s-guy and is still somehow connected in an uncanny way to all things female and fashionable. He brings a unique perspective to everything from laptop reviews to fashionable home decor. In his spare time, he gives image consulting advice on products, accessories, fashion, decor (and the occasional dating tip) to his Hollywood celebrity client list.

    Gosh Mick, these are very useful. I can put my stalker skills to use 😀

  2. ….or get your agent to call for you. If you’re a model it’s so easy to get in anywhere. Too easy – it gets boring!!

  3. I must say, those are some pretty cool tips. Never really barged into any such event, but would surely love to give it a try. 😉
    Also, will have to be prepared if I fail to carry out the super cool attitude and finally end up stuttering in front of the doorman… hehehe!!
    It must be such fun though.
