Well, it happened. A day after I came face to face (well, from four feet away, and the other side of a restraint and a wall of photographers) with Jennifer Lopez, I chatted up the other person I have parodied regularly on this Web site:

Rodarte - Front Row - Spring 2011 MBFW
In fact do you see that lily-white hand clutching the red iPhone? That is my lily-white hand, and my red iPhone (turns out that Voice Memo function is a lot more useful than you’d think). This photo explains a tremendous amount about why I am not the world’s preeminent hand model.
I am not sure what came over me — like, who do I think I am, talking to Kanye at Fashion Week when usually we just sit back and ogle? — but Kanye was very pleasant about being approached at Rodarte by a total random with tired eyes and really bad hands. I hope you enjoy the article it yielded, wherein I ask him if he has an equivalent of Sasha Fierce.
We also saw Gabrielle Union bringing it on at Badgley Mischka, and Serena Williams laughing it up with Anna Wintour at Vera Wang. Also, Gossip Girl’s Jessica Szohr was pretty much the only boldface name at Herve Leger, the bebe show was a complete logistical nightmare brightened only by the presence of two NBA stars who surely could have saved us if the entire place went up in flames, and we closed the night with another Fug Nation favorite: Courtney Love. We still have two more days left here in New York, but how could they possibly top this one?
