After an exhausting day in tents at Lincoln Center covering Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, we ran into Paper Mags adorable teletubby Mickey Boardman. He graciously invited us down to Beauty on Essex (our groovy neighborhood lounge) to an event launching super model Karen Elson‘s line for Nine West.
Following previous fashion soirees earlier that evening , we waltzed in and enjoyed lobster pizza and signature house sliders. The crowd was the usual mix of wannabe fashionistas and tattooed fabulosas.
We waited with baited breath for a musical performance by Ms Elson who in her spare time fronts a blue grassy acoustic quartet ( who knew she had musical abilities).
The former Mrs. Jack White finally emerged sporting a 1910 Gibson model 0 (a guitar i’d give my left nut for). Channeling Loretta Lynn, she belted out a credible set featuring tunes by the Everly Brothers and Leonard Cohen.
On our way out, we witnessed a fracas with hot mess Lindsay Lohan who’s been causing quite the stir at this year’s fashion who predictably objected to a house photog shooting her. She insisted that the shutterbug delete the image. He complied and peace was restored. Chill out girlfriend!
