>> After making a surprise engagement announcement last week, Marc Jacobs hit Sao Paolo over the weekend to promote his first store in the city. He and fiance Lorenzo Martone spent Friday afternoon at a store press conference, and then moved on to a party at nightclub Cantho that evening, where the two wore matching gold rings on their left hands. Along the way, Marc had plenty to reveal — including an explanation for his current kilt obsession: he likes to show off his calves.
Apparently he doesn't mind all the media attention his relationship with Lorenzo receives — "I love to draw the attention" — and it was Lorenzo who proposed. Together, they're thinking of adopting a baby girl, and Marc confirmed that he did buy a house, as reported, in the West Village last week. It has a garden, so that his two bull terriers Daisy and Albert can be transferred from his apartment in Paris next year, when everything is ready.
In the meantime, Marc and Lorenzo headed to the Txai Resort in Itacare this morning for almost a month, and will end their Brazil tour by staying at the Hotel Fasano in Rio de Janeiro for a couple of days.
