Why are the covers of French Vogue a little more daring than the covers of American Vogue?

Are you guys going to watch the Super Bowl?
“I don't think so. But I do want to see Paula Abdul.”
—Greg K. of MisShapes
We're looking back at 1968 for our 40th-anniversary issue. Where did you hang out then?
“Down in the Village, at the Bitter End. I was a jazz guy, and I would sneak into these jazz clubs when I was 17 or 18 to see Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker.”
Are you going to wear pajamas to the Oscars?
“It's just as easy to wear what I'm wearing right now. In my twenties, I used to get real formal, put on a blue suit and tie, and paint. Go figure, who knows why.” —Julian Schnabel

Who do you think should lead the Knicks?
“I go all the way back to Bill Riley. Who's the Belichick of basketball? That's the question. ”
Will someone cook when you watch the Super Bowl?
“My husband might. He made tacos last night. He kept bragging about how good they were, and I was like, ‛If they were so good, make them again.’”
Who are you rooting for in the Super Bowl?
“My friend Steve Tisch owns the Giants, so I guess I'm rooting for them. ”

Obama has magic. Does Hillary?
“Uh, not so much … I'd like to take her and squeeze her and shake her a little bit.”
When will American Vogue put André J. on the cover?
“I hope that will happen, but I don't think so. She's some gutsy lady, Carine.”
