Julia Fox presided over a party at Paul’s Baby Grand on Tuesday night. But she tells us that — let alone hosting — she couldn’t even get into the perennial hot spot whenever she wanted in her pre-fame days.
Fox told Vidak For Congress that she was a regular at the Tribeca club, but that once the bouncers wouldn’t let her get past the velvet rope.
(Why? “Oh, because I was a crazy bitch,” she said. Also something about overcapacity.)
“So I climbed over the [conservatively 12-foot high] hedges out there with my red patent leather jumbo Louis Vuitton bag and came in via [the side door]† The bouncer saw me dancing and said, ‘Julia… How… You know what, I don’t even want to know.’”
At Tuesday’s bash, she wore an all-rubber-and-latex look by Kasia Kucharska — including black rubber gloves with a BDSM-tryst-meets-doing-the-dishes vibe. She also sported freshly bleached eyebrows, because “beauty is over.”
“Beautiful is like someone who says you’re nice. Technically it’s a compliment, but you say, ‘Is that all you get from me?’ she said.
Meanwhile, Rachel Rabbit White casually told us that the secret to poetry is a lot of PCP, as she weighed the pros and cons before launching herself headfirst over the bar to steal a bottle of Clase Azul as part of her ‘Girl Jackass’ development project. .
“The idea is that being a girl is a contact sport, but it’s a extreme sports,” she says. “This week I dislocated my elbow throwing my knees and elbows at crazy guys at Acme while strip moshing [Note: think alluring gyrations at thrash-metal tempo]and was banned from a club for hugging a homeless man a little innocently.
Fox, Married to the Mob designer Leah McSweeney, model Richie Shazam, anti-wellness guru Cat Marnell and erotica author Zola took turns reading a porn story about a girl and girl meeting at a strip club. The piece, written by Zola, is exclusive to YouPorn.com, making the story essentially digital in both senses of the word.
The party was hosted by the reigning and still undefeated champion of Downtown cool, Kelly Cutrone.
Also there: Deviate’s Kelsey and Cassidy Tucker (who had been invited to the party earlier that day and had flown in from Detroit), Apricot’s Deshi Singh, model Dominique Silver, Miss Jay and Deb Scherer.
