Mr. Mickey Meets Mr. Alaïa and His Many Pets


Some fashion writers really have the life. Going to shows, parties, dinners galore, hobnobbing with design's greats. Like Mickey Boardman, who recently had dinner at Azzedine Alaïa's place in Paris. It was a merry old time, with Alaïa telling tales about his supermodel pals Veronica Webb and Stephanie Seymour.

Color us green for envious. But it's this little tidbit we find out about the designer that had us in stitches: "Mr. Alaïa said he, the St. Bernard along with four cats all sleep together in a pile!" Oh who says fashion has strange bedfellows? Don't you pile into bed with a giant dog and four cats? We just hope the bed is king-size.
