If you haven't yet, jump over to Chanel-News and see Karl Lagerfeld's newest short film "Remember Now". It's a hot tale of cool kids in San Tropez. Love a good branded entertainment (double Cs and boucle for days); love a good Lagerfeld cameo.

Even the trashiest of trannies knows that the well-appointed home is key for happiness. But what about the throughly thought-out beach house? With Fire Island looming, our attention turns to poolside entertaining. Face it, FIP is about the beach, the teas, the houses, and the romance (no matter how brief or sandy). But it's also about putting your lifestyle on display. The quarter share crowd can be as uppity as any UES dowager so you can't expect your landlord's standard issue Ikea to pass muster at your afternoon cocktail party. This is why we love LAPlates. The online mom and pop shop rolled out their first collection of monogrammable, customizable, melamine plates 2006 and have grown their products to include super-cool coasters, cups and cutting boards ideal for slicing lemons on the lanai. Most importantly, LAPlates are a green solution to glass-free entertaining; no more wasteful and ugly disposables.

We all love a good Ga! Even the little straight(ish) 6th grade boys. This homage shows off his own style as well as his fairly advanced keyboard skills. Pay no attention to the horrified looks coming from the girls in the background, they are clearly just jealous.

"You can always tell a tranny by her shoes." In "Shoes", TTT gives a stage to the foundation of any fabulous outfit: the boots, loafers, clogs and heels that we all put on each day.With Memorial Day just three weeks away, it's time to start considering white shoes in the city. A white leather lace-up transitions well on summer fridays from the office to the LIRR.
You know summer is well on its way when the new roof installation at the Met has opened. Here is what the Met has to say:
"The monumental bamboo structure, ultimately measuring 100 feet long, 50 feet wide, and 50 feet high, will take the form of a cresting wave that bridges realms of sculpture, architecture, and performance."
It's a great place to meet friends after work. Have a drink, mingle, network and enjoy the beautiful views before the heat was you sweating through your lightweight cashmere.

According to WWD, you can expect to see Gaga on tonight's "American Idol" wearing this little Armani number. The Ga and The Gio have developing quite a relationship; Armani said that Gaga is a, “modern phenomenon who has proved to be fascinating, and whose every appearance is a piece of theatre.” Gaga wore Armani to the Grammy Awards and this week's Costume Institute Gala.

I was at the Boom Boom Room until 4!" . . .

Yes, we are ALL guilty of this, whether it be during a weekday lunch with coworkers or at Sunday brunch with your beau and co.: phones on the table. Up close and personal, they have become the centerpiece of most dining establishments around New York. It's time to put them away kiddies. Really, it only a disservice to yourself; take a break from everyone else's business (including work) for an hour a day. Enjoy a little face time and your chicken salad sandwich. Just think of how many BBMs you will have to look forward to when you get back to the office.

With forecasted highs in the upper 80s, Jonathan Adler could not have picked a better day to celebrate spring than tomorrow. Luckly for him, New York weather will provide a perfect backdrop for his in-store soirées across the city. Pop in for 15% off, plus snacks and cocktails. If you're lucky, you may meet the man himself. Love a cocktail, love a sale!

THE COUNTESS LuAnn de Lessepes' single "Money Can't Buy You Class" is simply painful, not that we expected any better. For all that she's got going for her (the show, her figure, that Kathleen Turner/Marlboro Miles voice), LuAnn should stick to her strengths and avoid her liabilities, such as singing. It's hard on the ears and the heart.
Worst of all, from genre, to beat, to haughty affectation, "Money Can't Buy You Class" is a complete knock-off of one of the best disco songs with a teachable message of all time, Eartha Kitt's "Where is My Man?" If you are new to disco with a message, we suggest you skip The Countess and head for The Queen. Eartha.

Two days after members of the TTT editorial team SPOTTED The MARC's piercing blue eyes from beneath a baseball cap outside Pastis in the Meatpacking District, comes news that the designer and public relation's man Lorenzo Martone are calling it quits. Page Six reports that sources say Martone has vacated the Chelsea love nest and did not accompany Marc Jacobs to Massachusetts for the P-town wedding of his business partner, Robert Duffy, at which MJ served as best man. Moving out of the Mercantile Building and stepping down as your husband's wedding date? All is not well on Bleecker Street!

Listen-up trannies: GUMBO, the Thursday night gay party in DUMBO (which has been lauded as the gay party by Out, Time Out NY, Next Magazine, and, of course, TTT) has moved 24 hours down the calendar to Fridays. Tonight, shamble on down to Galapagos Art Space (16 Main Street, Brooklyn) for a night of boozing and cruising with the most eligible guys in the key 24-36 gay demo.
