Sometimes I'm so blase it takes a few days for some things to sink in. Like the other nght after the Heatherette show at the tents in Bryant Park, I went to a backstage area hosted by W Hotels of the Starwood Group, which was showcasing Aloft, their new low cost entry into the chic hotel sweepstakes. While conversing with Alan Cummings about an upcoming feature in Paper we had recently shot, I was interrupted to meet Jenna Jameson (see Kim Hastreiter's account with photo on Fashion Schmashion), who was delightful in a low cut Heatherette. Amid praise for Paper for being the first consumer publication to feature her on the cover, I was distracted by some loud chattering going on in a corner that turned out to be Janice Dickinson whom I had recently seen -- and loved -- in Larry Clark's new movie Wassup Rockers. As her back was turned to me, I chirped "excuse me." Without missing a beat, she turned and made a b-line directly to me, not with her body mind you, but with her LIPS which she proceeded to firmly plant on my own. Thrilled with my compliment and her turn as an aging beauty in Beverly Hills who cavorts with a young stud before getting electrocuted in the bath tub, she proclaimed her scene a modern classic right up there with Janet Leigh's murder in the shower in Psycho. Just thought I'd share this tragic moment with you.
