Ten Things Wednesday

  • 1. Avion Feminin — a small, quiet and brand new line showing by appointment only in the West Village. It's exactly the pared-down cool that girls who really live and work in New York want. We're crossing our fingers that some clever boutique will snap it up.
  • 2. The exploded high-tops and collared hoodie at Y-3.
  • 3. It was a little bit warmer today. We liked that.

Delusions of Celebrity Grandeur at Anna Sui

Joan Jett and Amber Tamblyn
She may have just decried all the Fashion Week runway shows as "bullshit," but that apparently hasn't stopped Amber Tamblyn from frolicking in this fetid dung heap. She and a friend soldiered through the shallow experience of sitting front row at Anna Sui on Wednesday night, even going so far as to waltz to their seats in what looked like chipper moods. Perhaps when they pre-partied backstage, they upgraded to absinthe from the weak-ass bourbon she reportedly swilled before Max Azria.

You might have seen yesterday's news that Time Warner chairman and CEO Dick Parsons, speaking at the Reuters Media Summit, did not explicitly reject the possibility that he might run for mayor in 2009. ("[W]hile saying he was not running for the job, he suddenly sounded a lot more like a man who wants to keep the option open," is how the Times put it.) You might also have seen Cindy Adams told-you-so-ing that "I told you this months back, at which time Mr. Parsons said no-no-a-thousand-times no." We'll just quickly point out that Ms. Adams's item, from April 19, merely said "Time Warner big mouths … [were] salivating over boyohboyohboy what a shot this African-American multimillionaire businessman would have." And we'll further point out, while these told-you-sos are being told, that Geoffrey Gray reported in August 21 issue of New York, that "[i]nsiders say that it's all but official: Richard Parsons, Time Warner's chairman and CEO, will run for mayor." That's all. Business Chief Hedges, a Bit, on Running for Mayor [NYT] A Movie Star Goes for Moore on B'Way [NYP] Is Parsons the New Bloomberg? [NYM]
