More than ever, there seems something dated in the existence of these people, publicists who glory in their task as guardians of precedence. Like the eunuchs of the Ming dynasty, they tend to forget their place as servants of the imperial luxury goods industry. And, like the eunuchs of the Forbidden City, they may wake up one day to find that those with real power — in this case, Bernard Arnault, Robert Polet, François Pinault — have noted that the bottom line is not being well served by lackeys with attitude.

TI has got to give Polaroid purveyor Jeremy Kost props for his genius self-promotion. That boy is simply always at the right place at the right time with the right people. Voila his email RE: his Miami Art Basel bash:
I'm super excited to invite you all to a preview of new work to be installed and shown at the newly renovated RokBar at 1906 Collins in Miami on Friday, December 7th from 8pm to 11pm.
The preview will feature new video work (What You Need is In the Limo, 2007) and the debut of my FAME series of silkscreen paintings, which can also be seen at Conner Contemporary's (my gallery's) booth at the Pulse art fair..
The event is being presented by Le Baron (Paris), Grand Life (New York), Conner Contemporary (DC), with generous support from Zune and Belvedere. There will be an open bar from 8pm to 10pm and an after-party (12pm onwards) hosted by Purple Magazine....
Please try to come on the early side as its a small space and it will be crowded. That said PLEASE RSVP to my gallery at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can expect a fun filled night with lots of surprises and some really amazing things to take home with you ;-).
If you can not make it, but would like more information, please also contact the gallery.
Hope to see you in Miami!
PS : Other events to be held at the Le Baron space include parties for NADA/Matthew Marks Gallery, Colette, Tokion, and Rivington Arms... so it will BE the place to be.

True quote of the day:
The mobs may have been screaming for Carrie Underwood, Jessica Alba and Nicole Ritchie at Fashion Rocks but a clique of cool kids kept it really real on Grand Street as 3 gallaries had simultaneous openings. Marilena Borgna's "Rock n Roll Diaries" launch at the Dactyl Foundation got premium young fashion points . Probably because of Marilena's past stint as casting director of sorts for Vogue Italia, many a model was there. The photographs (which were incidental to the kids assembled) were actually color xeroxes taped to the wall. Very teenaged bedroom reverie. There were two A-list Italian Vogue cover girls in the house (Adina + DJ Agyness jacking the decks with co-hort Jacky)
