Adrian Grenier Meets a Belle in the Big City

Adrian Grenier
You’re at a party, sitting bored on the couch next to some drunk Indian guy, when a shaggy-haired, twinkly-eyed stranger ambles up to you. He smiles. You smile back. "What's your name?" he says. You tell him, and then you ask for his. "Adrian," he says. He says he's a documentary filmmaker, along with some other stuff. As he says this, his eyes twinkle, and you realize that you have seen these twinkling eyes before, on the hit show Entourage. Why, it's Adrian Grenier! Immediately, you start planning your lives together. Half the year, you'll live in his Clinton Hill brownstone. Winters, you'll decamp to Los Angeles, with the occasional jaunt to St. Barts, Italy, and Cannes. He asks what you do. You tell him you're in fashion. "That's cool," he says. Maybe he'll pay for you to start your own clothing line, like Harvey did for Georgina! Then he leans in and huskily whispers the thing every woman has always dreamed of hearing. "So," he says, "how about we go home, and I fuck the shit out of you?" Adrian Grenier Pickup Lines: A Play in One Act [Radar]

Five Things We Liked on Sunday

Five Things
  • 1. At Michael Kors, we flipped for the pointillist Seurat-print caftan on Angela Lindvall.
  • 2. The light-gray, leopard-esque dot print on blouses, dresses, and even a scarf at Derek Lam. We'll take it. Also, the elegant satin robe over a sequined evening dress. Finally, a chance to call something "soigné."

Life After the Runway: Molly Sims, Hungry No More!

One of the best parts of going to the tents in Bryant Park is chilling in the W Hotel lounge backstage, where celebs sip on mimosas before making their last-minute trips to the front row. Already, the Olsens and Gwen Stefani (and baby) have made appearances, along with Mya and Teri Hatcher. Demi Moore was supposed to come before Miss Sixty but accidentally got swept into the IMG lounge, where she was swarmed by the crowd from a party-in-progress. We caught up with model turned TV host Molly Sims and got the scoop on her shopping habits as well as the meta-experience of watching her former profession from the front row.

At Opening, Phillip Lim Is Hot, and So Are His Guests

20070718lim_sm.jpg
Phillip Lim — fresh off his CFDA womenswear triumph and busy collaborating with everyone from Uniqlo to Birkenstock — is hot. And so was the opening party for his first store, the 3.1 Phillip Lim boutique on Mercer Street, last night. The stylish crowd loves the endearingly bashful designer and his ridiculously adorable wares — the less-than-designer prices don't hurt — which meant there were throngs in his Soho space last night, overwhelming the air conditioning. The only solution? Quaffing plenty of the chilled bubbly, generously provided by Veuve Cliquot. Even so, perhaps the only person whose hair didn't wilt in the humidity was Anna Wintour — but that's because Lim immediately escorted the editor and her perfect bob downstairs and away from the crowd. Designers and social girls and fashion assistants were all there, as was Debra Messing, who had never met Lim before and tried to stay cool by the bar. The actress was adorable in a pouffed black Lim dress, though overaccessorized with a distracting headband also from the designer. Even with beloved Phillip, there can be too much of a good thing. —Nan Wolfe
