W Magazine: 40 Fabulous Years

Jenny Wu Attends W Magazine's 40th Anniversary Party at Saks Beverly Hills

Saks recently sent me on assignment to cover a fabulous fete at the Beverly Hills store, celebrating W Magazine’s 40th anniversary and the book release of W: The First 40 Years. Catherine Keener and W editor-in-chief Stefano Tonchi hosted the festivities. Guests got a glimpse of a stunning exhibition, showcasing photography by the likes of Bruce Weber, Steven Klein, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. I’ve always admired W Magazine for its visually stunning and artistically inspiring images so it was such a treat to take a walk down fashion’s memory lane. As I was nibbling on a mini beef Wellington, admiring an intimate portrait of Jackie O from the Seventies, my eyes locked with Catherine Keener — so I went over and introduced myself. We…

Saks recently sent me on assignment to cover a fabulous fete at the Beverly Hills store, celebrating W Magazine’s 40th anniversary and the book release of W: The First 40 Years.

I’ve always admired W Magazine for its visually stunning and artistically inspiring images so it was such a treat to take a walk down fashion’s memory lane.

As I was nibbling on a mini beef Wellington, admiring an intimate portrait of Jackie O from the Seventies, my eyes locked with Catherine Keener — so I went over and introduced myself. We chatted for a few minutes about my career transition from fashion lawyer to fashion blogger. She was warm, beautiful and thoroughly engaging and encouraged me to continue working for my passion for fashion.

Passion. Fashion. Those are the words of the night. Passion for fashion is W Magazine’s past 40 years of dedication to their sartorially enriching, avant-garde works of art. Passion for fashion is Saks Fifth Avenue’s quest to make all of us look and feel fabulous. And passion for fashion is what l’m living for…perhaps for the rest of my life or at the very least, the next 40 years.

Any event with Saks and W called for fabulous footwear.

Jenny Wu Takes Europe!

Greetings from Europe!  I’ve been traveling to London, Paris and Milan! The past two weeks have been a whirlwind of discoveries, new friends, and many new memories. It’s also been an endless fashion feast for my eyes as I peeked into the unique style sensibilities of each city. London is truly the capital of street style.  Parisian style is all about channeling one’s inner confidence, translating to a look that’s well coiffed and très chic! In Milan, the streets brimmed with glamorous fashion lovers attending fashion week. I’m deeply inspired by what I’ve seen and hope to bring European fashion inspirations into my personal style.

Jenny Wu Celebrates American Design!

“I’m jetting off to Europe to bask in three glorious weeks of fashion, food, and culture. I’m so excited and so ready to take off! My life has been speeding on fast forward mode for the past couple of months and has been completely devoid of any breathing time or breathing room. So, I’m hoping a breath of fresh air in the world’s most glamorous continent will re-calibrate, re-energize and re-align my life a bit. Before taking off for my extended fashion vacation, I stopped by Saks Fifth Avenue Beverly Hills to try on five fabulous fall outfits from my favorite American designers. Europe may set the stage as the world’s fashion inspiration, but USA will always be my style muse.” Marc by Marc Jacobs chambray shirt and jeans and…
