The first Formula One is upon us and everyone in Austin is a little paralyzed in fight or flight mode / standing by the side of the road to watch the carnival roll in. Ooooh, that's a good idea, we will call the Formula One crowd "CARNIES." What I know about the Formula One crowd: my kinda mean, extremely generous hedge fund manager EX was super into it, so was the Arab oil lawyer who lives in Monte Carlo that I met at Brasserie Lipp in Paris, AND so is Richest man in the world, Carlos Slim. One of my sources tells me Carlos "HAS ARRIVED"
Whole Pretty readers, Carlos Slim. Carlos Slim, Whole Pretty readers.
Carlos is worth....WAIT FOR IT...69 BILLION according to Forbes March 2012 issue.
Point being, these people live such rarefied lives & roll with such MASSIVE BANK they don't take piddly SUV's with tinted windows from their $300,000/weekend house to the F1 track, NO they take helicopters. I am nervous about any preparation at for all the helicopter traffic, seeing as the city of Austin can BARELY make an extremely dysfunctional & dangerous left turn lane at 6th and Lamar.

Look! Carlos and Shakira! OMG, this JUST came to me, if I ever have a BOY pug, his name is gonna be Carlos "CHAZ" Slim. Moving on, whenever I have ruminated with friends about the type of crowd, I have ALWAYS, FOR MONTHS, said THE W HOTEL WILL BE THE BEATING HEART OF THE WEEKEND AND IT WILL BE HEMORRHAGING HERVE LEGER BANDAGE DRESSES AND PATENT PLATFORM PUMPS. To me, F1 and The W are congruous brands. FLASHY. NOT SUBTLE.
I was researching hotties of F1 (girlfriends & wives) and goddamit, look what IMMEDIATELY popped up on google image.
Jensen Butler & his GF Michelle Michibata
Boom!!! model/girlfriend Michelle Michibata ROCKING AN HERVE LEGER BANDAGE DRESS (toooooooooooold you!) and boyfriend, Brit driver Jensen Butler. Try saying MIchelle Michibata three times fast. Her particular brand of hotness is 1/2 Argentinian, 1/2 Japanese - NATCH. So what I am going to do FOR YOU, is muster ALL MY STRENGTH to go down to THE W and plant myself on a bar stool and WATCH. Eyes wide open. CLEAR EYES FULL HEARTS CAN'T LOSE. You should probably follow me on twitter @thewholepretty.
