“I’ve been on the cover of 50 magazines over the last twelve months. Some supermodels are lucky to have one, and look at me.”
This comes from one of the biggest douchebags to grace the world since Kevin Federline. We speak of none other than Jon Gosselin. Yes Jon, you have been on the cover of 50 magazines, we can not dispute that. But unlike supermodels you are on magazines with names like the National Enquirer and Star. To hear more of his musings check out New York Magazine’s article.
We meant to do an Art Basel wrap-up but the minute we got back we were just too busy. What to say. More parties than New York fashion week, more New Yorkers than the island of Manhattan and more champagne than is probably legal.
The Highlights? The Nars cocktail hour at the Standard, The Interview Magazine dinner, The Box at Nikki Beach (we co-hosted on Friday with Kipton Art and Whitewall Magazine), the cabanas at the Mondrian and EVERY night at Le Baron. The lowlights? the surprisingly spare use of air conditioning almost everywhere and the bitchy doormen. We wanted to go back there this weekend and laugh at all the empty clubs.
We usually take pictures like maniacs but honestly took very few this week. We are just stealing some images from the Interview Mag site. Is really just borrowing since the pictures were shot by Artwing’s own Eric Ray Davidson.
special thanks to Susan Kilkenny, Renata Merriam, Marie LaFrance and Ranya Johnston. Our Interview girls who made it all happen.
Talk about hot! Check out Eric Ray Davidson’s fashion portrait in this week’s LA Times Magazine. The picture is a part of the Magazine’s “ist” list. This shot is pretty obviously titled the Eroticist.
Last night we attended the ACRIA Holiday dinner at the Stephen Weiss Studio. It is our last benefit of the season and it was an amazing one. We were guest of Christian Simonds and the lovely Gillian Hearst Simonds and shared our table with designer Jason Wu. The event featured an amazing silent auction of world renowned artists including Ross Bleckner, Julian Schnabel and Herb Ritts. Donna Karan spoke about the founding of ACRIA and the night was dedicated to Claudia Cohen, one of ACRIA’s founders who passed. Others seen at the event included Ron Perlman, Tim Morehouse, Jackie Astier, Patrick McMullan, Nicole Miller, Carolina Herrera, Andrew Saffir and Daniel Benedict. [All photos by Billy Farrell for PMc]
