OUT WITH AARON K: Nutty-Acting

OUT WITH AARON K: Nutty Acting

I’m always surprised at how busy and nutty-acting everyone gets during Fashion Week prep. Everyone is in a huff. I’ve seen a lot of models in Soho, they’re almost all in huffs. Except for the “It” models, you know like Ash and Jethro. I bet they’re never in anything like a huff, they’re only in magazines. Is Cole Mohr still “It”?

Anyway, I got invited to the model casting for Duckie Brown. It made me feel a little special, but whenever I told anyone they sort of laughed. Everyone thought I was trying out to be a model, I wasn’t. Duckie wanted me there to cast models, and pretend to DJ. I really like pretending.

It was self-defeating though. The casting, I mean.  I was the short, pasty, black-clad kid with grandma glasses and bad hair. Everyone around me was 6 foot tall, healthy, fit, and beautiful. It was awful, and amazing. Amazing because they were changing and naked and trying on great clothes.

Two boys I party with came on a go-see. Is that an official term? Go-see? Or did Tyra make that up for America’s Next Top Model? But, right, Jace and Harvey came on a go-see. It was nice seeing them out and about during the day. And I think both of them were cast, because they have amazing walks and are so handsome.

Oh. Did anyone see that Craiglist missed connection from Tuesday? A friend posted it to my Facebook. I think someone I know, a boy, gave a man a blowjob at the Box while his girlfriend watched. It all happened on the balcony, I mean, I must have been a few feet away. Was it you? Tell me the truth. I need the scoop.

I think it’s a good nightlife when things like this can still happen. It reminds me of Studio 54.

It’s so sad that the Ruff Club is ending. I don’t know what else to say. It’s the end of an era, or something. There’s a rumor that Peaches Geldof and Jethro Cave will be there. That they’re going to DJ. I love Nick Cave, and his son Jethro is amazing. I didn’t know that Peaches is still around. Can I have her job? What is her job?

P.S.

I forgot to mention I met Christopher Sauve and Julia Frakes yesterday while creeping Soho with Alex. Chris was the nicest, like so pleasant. Julia was a button, but I kind of think I squeezed her hand too hard. Alex thought her pants were a great Beacon’s find, but of course they were Erin Wasson. Nicollette said Julia was a downtown luminary.

I guess she must be if she’s curating a collection at Screaming Mimi’s for Fashion’s Night Out. I’m jealous, wish I was curating a collection.

Did you know that even the Disney Channel changes its New York programming before and during Fashion Week? I told you, nutty-acting. Everyone.

STREET HERO WOULD SMILE BUT SHE’S STARVING

STREET HERO WOULD SMILE BUT SHES STARVING

Above is Julia Frakes from Bunny Bisous & Paper Magazine standing in front of Popeye’s, weird choice for a photo considering how thin this girl is (just look at her legs).

”Julia’s vegan though, and is actually carrying a CHANEL vegan satin bag, with a scarf also from CHANEL. She’s wearing a lovely white and green PROENZA SCHOULER dress with FALKE leggings and black and white heels from STELLA MCCARTNEY, and a cute LANVIN pearl bow necklace.”

Fellow Blogger Knows How to Flaunt Balenciaga

Fellow Blogger Knows How to Flaunt Balenciaga

Julia Frakes is officially our favorite little bloggette. She wore an amazing $8000 Balenciaga dress to the front row of Christian Lacroix and it’s officially the only time I’ve seen the now iconic dress without hating it. (The mags have a tendency of making it look more like armor than it needs to be, Julia tones it down).  The 18-year-old whiz has been making a few headlines in fashion (me jealous, you better believe it) after landing a covetted position as Paper mags fashion blogger.  The recent Wyoming Seminary graduate wore the dress to her Senior Prom and made a connection to Paper mag after budding up with co-publisher Kim Hastreiter on Facebook. Officially on the list of ones to watch and a trendsetter with the smile of an angel.
