Derek Blasberg comes to Toronto, stirs the pot (not that pot)
Derek Blasberg is to New York what Shinan Govani is to Toronto: the city’s gossip king. So on his recent book promo trip to Toronto (he recently released Classy: Exceptional Advice for the Extremely Modern Lady), the city’s socialite set and PR mavens gave him an upper-classy tour of the city with parties at The Room and LAB. In his regular blog for Vogue, Blasberg shared what he learned about the city, including that Toronto is shockingly close to New York—“Canada ain’t that far away—from my apartment in New York to my hotel room, door-to-door service was two hours.” And, Toronto likes acronyms. Thank you, LAB—a.k.a. Live and Breathe. But Blasberg may have inadvertently stuck his nose down some inhospitable holes when he wrote that The Bay is “Toronto’s most famous shopping mecca.” (We can think of another mecca that might have something to say about that.) And that Suzanne Rogers, who hosted a party for the writer, is the “queen of Toronto’s fashion scene.” (Cough, cough. Stacey Kimel. Cough.)

Rogers is the true Queen of Toronto fashion – no doubt!
Suzanne Rogers rocks! Oscar,Blasberg, Kimmel’s not in her league!
Rogers has a profile outside of Toronto-Kimel doesn’t have one past Amber and Holt’s.
Blasberg did his homework (he’s known for that). Maybe you should too-you can start with the articles on torontolife.com Rogers takes it.
The waters of Suzanne Rogers run far deeper than her unprecedented style. Unlike the vapid creatures desperate for pictorial presence in the latest social pages,Rogers is the real deal..a heart of gold,a quick wit and a sharp mind. Oh and btw …she can fill a room like nobody’s business! Even the almighty Oscar de la Renta was smitten, declaring Suzanne as his Queen.. So put that in your Louboutins and smoke it!
Stacey Kimel all they way! I have never seen that woman look less then absolute perfection!
It is true that Kimel has a sense of style; but unfortunately her delusional sense of self-importance, grand standing and desperation to be noticed by all is also well known in fashion circles. Cough Cough ‘The Joker’ Cough Cough in this case!
Looks like the only one stirring the pot is you !
