I'm On The Cover of Paper!
First of all, let me say what an amazing job the mag's Kim Hastreiter, David Hershkovits, Mickey Boardman, and Drew Elliott did in pulling together a beautiful people-filled gala at the New York Public Library that was true to the spirit of the long running style magazine, down to the entertainment, the bartenders, and the cake a la mode. (I'll have more in the column.)
And it was also fun getting to pose with pals for the cover--so here I am with cultural historian Brian Cummings and publicist Meryl Van Meter, doing sultry, too-cool looks on my instruction. ("Don't smile!" I ordered. "Look really bored!") We come off a little bit like the '80s group Shalimar crossed with a still from an indie film about a dysfunctional family, and that's just what I was going for.
Now to get on a REAL cover.
