    luc-carlnightlife issue.jpgLuc Carl, Lady Gaga's ex, muse and St. Jerome's regular, was profiled in the New York Times today, and among other things, reveals that his hairstylist "is the stylist for the cast of 'Chicago,'" and that re: Gaga, "I was madly in love for a long time." The story's Lada Gaga focus (the headline is "Lady Gaga's Muse Tests His Poker Face) had us wondering whether the piece's author Steven Kurutz received an email this morning like the one we got when Alex Catarinella profiled him for our nightlife issue back in 2010. The story, which you can read here, is quite harmless. But it drew the wrath of Luc. Here's our post-article correspondence.


    Everyone in the world wants me to do interviews. I turn them all down. I thought I could trust you.

    I thought I made it perfectly fucking clear that my relationship was not to be mentioned in the article. I will be posting on twitter that the article was not authorized and a bunch of bull shit.

    I read the first two sentences and was disgusted.

    I've never read you magazine. Never even heard of it. I asked around and heard nothing but good things so I said yes to you. You really let me down.

    I might as well write star mag zine back. I had no idea you were a tabloid.


    Hi Luc --
    Sorry to hear you're disappointed with the piece. We didn't write that you were in a relationship with her one way or the other - just that there is speculation, and kept things intentionally vague. But i am curious - when did you say we couldn't mention her? Did you tell the  
    writer? Me? The photographer? I am looking through my old emails and can't find anything where you say that.



    You never asked me about it so I assumed you didn't know. Nice try but I think you and I both known it's bull shit. As you can imagine every magazine in the country is after me. You are the only one I agreed to meet with because I thought you had class. I guess I was wrong.

    For so many of us nowadays, news comes courtesy of Twitter and that's why we're bringing you a new feature looking at what's trending across the country and around the world.  Each day we'll highlight a new batch of cities and a new batch of odds and ends having their (sometimes brief) moment on the news feed.  Here's what we've found today...

    We are officially obsessed with Grey Area, Kyle De Woody and Manish Vora's new online portal for the "best of art meets object." The site features a whole slew of artist-designed objects, clothes, jewelry and nickel-plated plastic cucumbers -- both commissioned by the site, and sold in partnership with organizations like Creative Time and Art Production Fund. And the roster of artists is quite impressive -- from Megan Whitmarsh to Zaha Hadid to Bruce High Quality Foundation to Julian Schnabel. Tonight they're throwing a party to celebrate the opening of their showroom. So before everyone snags up all the goodies, take a peek at some of the finest finds we sniffed out on the site.

    "Sharpies," by Megan Whitmarsh, $800.

    proportional_940_david_foot_i.jpg"Shrimp Pin," by Anne Koch, $65.

Engaging the mind as well as the eye, the exhibit will focus on the cultural and technological forces that shaped each designer's work just as much as they, in turn, shaped the fashion industry.
    Les Arts Decoratifs, 107 Rue de Rivoli, Paris. Mar. 9 -Sept.16.

    rudiexhibit.jpg"Rudi Gernreich is responsible for the birth of modern fashion," explains Cameron silver, the owner of L.A.'s vintage couture utopia Decades. silver has curated a show at MOCA devoted to the late, great L.A-based designer and his relationship to model/muse Peggy Moffitt and her husband, photographer William Claxton.

    My vanity plate photo project, which has now become a full-blown hobby, began when I saw a plate that read RIP KURT. After that, I think I just started to notice them everywhere I went. Here's my second installment of some of the best plates I've spotted recently.

    It wouldn't be a fashion week after-party without a fun but totally random mix of celebs showing up, and Humberto Leon and Carol Lim of Kenzo delivered with their Paris Fashion Week bash last night. Party-goers included Diddy, Susanne Bartsch and Robyn. Oh to be a fly on the wall as those three mingled. Check out these photos by Billy Farrell Agency.

    Man-about-town Peter Davis is a longtime contributor of Paper and a general pal, having been part of our family since he had green hair and was our clubs reporter in the mid '90s.  We can't, therefore, think of a better person to be editor-in-chief of the new society magazine SCENE. The magazine, whose inaugural issue features model Eletrra Wiedemann on the cover, plays with the increasingly loose concept of celebrity and society in Manhattan, combining downtown, uptown and everything in between. Check out theses shots of Davis and friends at the magazine's launch last night at Desmond's. Go get 'em, Peter!

    Screen shot 2012-03-08 at 3.15.02 PM.pngWith Mad Men's fifth season premiering on Sunday, March 25th, we're kicking off a feature today that looks back at the cast before they entered the doors of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce.

    First up: Christina Hendricks.

    Before Hendricks slipped into shift dresses and pencil skirts to play sex bomb secretary Joan Holloway, she was a TV regular, with parts on MTV's Undressed, ER and FireflyThough it's clear she kept busy in Hollywood, like many of her Mad Men co-stars, the actress mostly flew under the radar before Matthew Weiner called.  (It goes without saying how high-profile the starlet is now -- even her phone's been hacked!)

    Sorority (MTV Unaired Pilot), 1999

    In this pilot that never made it on the air, we get a Mad Men twofer as January Jones also had a small role. Both MM ladies play sorority sisters at a California school but while Jones' character is your stereotypical blonde, bitchy sorority girl, Hendricks is clearly the Kappa lackey. (Jones appears at 1:22 and Hendricks at 5:47.)

    MTV's Undressed, 1999

    On MTV's late 90s/early 00s "late night soap opera" that focused on all things sex -- the surprisingly still-there-from-1999-website bio reads "Undressed examined every type of sexual relationship imaginable, including those involving different races, sexual orientations and fetishes" -- Hendricks plays a girl who arrives in California for some college visits and gets it on with a guy named Ricky she met at a Greyhound bus station.

    ER , 2002

    Many die-hard ER fans may remember Hendricks' character and harrowing story arc. She  plays the neighbor of Nurse Abby Lockhart (a.k.a. Maura Tierney) who gets battered by her husband. And, eerily enough, that husband was played by Matthew Settle (a.k.a Gossip Girl's Rufus Humphrey).

    Firefly, 2002-2003

    In this sci-fi show about about a group of humans traveling around the galaxy on a spacecraft 500 years in the future, Hendricks plays a woman claiming to be the wife of lead character, Captain Malcolm 'Mal' Reynolds (played by Nathan Fillion).

    Kevin Hill, 2004-2005

    Before this short-lived legal drama starring Taye Diggs got cancelled, Hendricks played an ambitious lawyer frequently underestimated by her peers. (Maybe this role foreshadowed Joan?)

    Jake in Progress, 2006

    This John Stamos vehicle introduces Hendricks as one of two women applying for a dental hygienist job and, for once, the actress is not seen as "The Hot One."  That is, not at first.  All it took was for the gal to let down her red hair and Stamos' co-star, Ian Gomez, couldn't keep his dental pliers straight.

    Stay tuned for more Before They Were Mad Men roundups on Jon Hamm, Elizabeth Moss, John Slattery, January Jones, Vincent Karstreiter and Chauncey.

  • 03/08/12--13:48: Married with Children
  • Jennifer Westfeldt has written and starred in films exploring same-sex relationships (her 2001 breakout hit Kissing Jessica Stein) and couples therapy (Ira & Abby). Now, she tackles children in Friends with Kids, her sincere, deeply funny directorial debut. Westfeldt and Adam Scott play friends who decide to have a baby together but keep their relationship platonic. Jon Hamm, Kristin Wiig, Maya Rudolph and Chris O'Dowd star as Westfeldt and Scott's married-with-children friends. Here, we chat with the actress-director-screenwriter (who's been dating co-star Hamm since before Don Draper was even a glimmer in Matthew Weiner's eye) about her real-life views on the subject.

    Do you and Jon think about having kids?

    We do. It's hard to know if we will, or won't, or if it's too late, but, it hasn't been pressing for us. I kept thinking I'd wake up with some clarity about it and I haven't yet.

    Is that why you made the movie?

    It was born out of just watching the different ways in which our friends handled the transition, and being such a big part of their lives, but also being somewhat removed because we are out of sync with our peer group.

    You also have to realize how much your friends with kids' priorities shift and understand them. You're mourning the loss of your one-on-one time with those friends, but they are too. It's incredible when your friends with kids get a free moment with you and get to go out for a drink or a meal, they can't believe it. Most of my friends all say the same thing, 'It's the most rewarding thing in the world but it's the hardest thing I've ever done.' No one really talks about that as much as they do the joys of it. It's interesting when your friends are really honest with you about it and say, 'It's unbelievable, it's amazing, it's like nothing else but it's the hardest thing I've ever done, I'm exhausted all the time, and I feel like I'm failing half the time.' That's the double-edge of it; it's the richest experience you'll ever have and it's the hardest one too.

    Do you worry about how kids would affect your relationship with Jon?

    Sure. We've been in such a long relationship and it's been such a successful one and such a romantic one and we have the luxury of going wherever we want. There aren't a lot of limitations on what we're able to do and what we're able to do as a couple. Obviously that shifts and changes if you have kids. You have to kind of give up the old life and reign in the new, and that's a big decision.

    Adam Scott is so great in this. Is it strange to be in a movie with Jon where you're not playing opposite him?

    Adam, Jon, and I have been friends for fifteen years, so it was sort of a no-brainer to cast him. I think he embodies the part and I can't imagine someone filling it in better. I don't think Jon was particularly right for that role. But also, I don't think anyone wants to see us play opposite each other.

    Your production company with Jon, Point West Pictures, produced Friends With Kids. What was it like working together in that sense?

    It was so exciting to be a part of something together from soup to nuts. We had a say in every decision. It's our first project through our company and I think, given that, we were left with a real sense of accomplishment. We got through this indie shoot in the dead of winter in New York in 25 days, which is insanely fast. It was really like being shot out of a cannon and just problem-solving every day when the lenses would be frozen because of the weather, or because your key crew members would be stuck in New Jersey snowed in. That brutal winter made making the movie even more challenging and, not to mention, having babies and toddlers on your set. Every day, there was a child-related or weather-related crisis of sorts.
    Last winter in New York was really bad.
    I was like, 'Really, New York? All I do is defend you, and this is what I get for it? And Jon's like, 'Exactly. This is why we live in LA!'

    You mentioned having children on the set. What was it like working with the kids who played your son?
    Adam and I were so in love with the child who played our son for the bulk of the film. He was just this ray of sunshine on our set. He would arrive and everyone would smile and be so happy. We definitely had discussions about just kidnapping him, like, 'Maybe they won't notice.'

    Friends with Kids is in theaters March 9th.

    Big K.R.I.T.'s video, "Boobie Miles," was all over the Twittersphere today and, after watching, we realize it has more merit than just its goofy name (which is in homage to the character from the Friday Night Lights movie).  Directed by DJ/filmmaker/gal-about-town Va$htie, this thoughtful black-and-white video shows Big K.R.I.T. rapping words of encouragement as a trio of guys practic basketball, soccer and BMX.  With jazz sax in the background, this slow-paced rap video feels almost like an elegy.

Tonight, Tom is in the hospital, and too ill to go on with the show. His friends are gathering in celebration of Tom on this Full Moon Day from 9 to 11 p.m. at PS 122 on First Ave. and 9th Street in the East Village. Bring props, snacks, costumes and good vibes. To get a sense of what an amazing and interesting guy he is, read this interview we did with Tom in 2010, timed to his one-man show at PS 122, "The Talking Show: The Magical, Ridiculous Journey of Alien Comic."  For more info on Tom, and to add any of your own memories of his past Full Moon celebrations, click here. See you tonight. And all hail Luna Macaroona.

    Designer/illustrator Anne Sofie Madsen recently turned heads at Copenhagen Fashion Week with looks featuring phantasmagoric drawings of ethereal faces both female and animal. The rest of the collection -- with its striking geometric cut-out shapes, tactile textures and asymmetrical silhouettes -- reflects the immense talent of a burgeoning designer who got her start working for Galliano at Dior and Alexander McQueen. She clearly took good notes. Check out her looks on models in the gallery above.

    Diet Coke is one of those perennially "chic foods," (or, rather, drinks), which is why we're not surprised that they've tapped Jean Paul Gaultier to be their next Creative Director, taking over from Karl Lagerfeld.  As part of his official duties, JPG will design a limited edition collection of bottles and cans, develop online content, retail concepts and ad campaigns throughout Europe and, apparently, star in some cute-bordering-on-weird videos alongside puppets.

    Diet Coke worked with the designer on three videos in which he appears in different guises--therapist, journalist, detective--and gives makeovers to one of the "Diet Coke girls" a.k.a. marionettes.  They've unveiled two of three videos already with the third going up tomorrow.

    Check out the first two videos below and let us know what you think about JPG having a romance with a puppet that looks like a cross between Brigitte Bardot and a Bratz doll.
