Let's Take a Moment to Talk About Patricia Field

For the edification of Cosmo sippers everywhere, Glamour's style blogger, executive fashion editor Suze Yalof Schwartz, compiled a list of what Sex and the City costume stylist Patricia Field loves and hates. Schwartz writes, "There is nothing better than a stylist who is not only passionate but has a distinct point of view. A great stylist either loves it or hates it and there is nothing in between."


Rihanna Has No Idea What to Do Next

What's 19-year-old Barbados-born singing sensation Rihanna supposed to do next, now that her ubiquitous (and awesome) summer song "Umbrella" has taken her halfway toward total world domination? We saw her at a Paper-magazine party the other day (she's the mag's latest cover girl), and we asked. And, well, she doesn't seem to know. But she's open to things. Movies? "I want to do comedy and action," she told us. "I would love to do my own stunts. That would be fun." Broadway? "Maybe," she said. Then, "Definitely!" A fashion line? "I want to start something. I like mean-girl stuff. I like lingerie. I'm very extreme." And what about the umbrella line? "They approached me. I'm thinking metallic, maybe. Or transparent's cool — you gotta see the raindrops." —Rachel Wolff


Mischa Barton Lives in Hoboken

Mischa Barton
Mischa Barton is currently filming Assassination of a High School President with Bruce Willis in New Jersey, and the apartment she owns in Tribeca is rented out. So instead she's taken up residence across the river, in Hoboken. "Every time I've come recently I've stayed in a hotel, which just feels lame," the former O.C. star told us at Paper magazine's dinner for its September cover girl, Rihanna, last night. "I've been hanging at friends' flats in the city, and it made me want to get a place of my own." Oh, that's right, Mischa, you were born in London, where they have flats. We forgot. (Elsewhere at the party, Paper's Mickey Boardman greeted guests in a sequined blazer, of the Elton John style. He prefers Rihanna's "Breaking Dishes" from her new album over the more popular "Umbrella," if you must know. "It shows a little bit of a rougher side," he said.) "I think I need to be back here," said Barton, who grew up in an apartment in the city. "I'm in my twenties now, and it would be nice to finally have my own place in the city. I like the East Village, Greenwich Village, and the meatpacking. I'm sort of a downtown girl." Which is just as well. We needed a new haughty waif who thinks she's British. Claire Danes is nearly 30. —Rachel Wolff
