Women At Work

Monday, December 23rd, 2013

While there are wishes still to be wished, I’ll throw in for a door with a room of my own on the other side of it. I’d like to join the likes of these amazing ladies and have a creative space to myself. (Perhaps outfitted with a sweet little landline.) Georgia O’Keeffe in her studio […]

Throwback Thursday: My Lunch with André

Thursday, November 21st, 2013

In 2009 I interviewed Vogue editor-at-large André Leon Talley over lunch at his (then) favorite French bistro in the city, Benoit.

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

I used to be a jock. I did ballet, soccer, gymnastics, field hockey, track, ice skating—and in junior high I petitioned to get girls on the wrestling team.
