...and he also adores a good soapy read on the royals. What else really gets the Paper editorial director jazzed, Chic wondered while ambling around last night's Jason Wu for Target bash? Hint: the pattern-happy brand also got the Target treatment recently. Can you make us chortle any harder, Mr. Mickey?! We'd eat truffled fries and discuss upper-crust Brits with you any day, darling.
How are those fries, Mickey? They look awesome.
The French fries are delicious! I think there’s truffle oil on them. I am a connoisseur of few things in life, and French fries are one of those things.
What else are you a connoisseur of?
Royalty biographies are another, and high-fashion sparkly tops are yet another one of my things. I also specialize in clown shoes [points to sequined sneakers.]
Why are you here tonight?
Paper does a lot of work with Target. Also, I'm a shopaholic. I lost my mind over Missoni for Target.
How crazy did you go, exactly?
Online, I bought as many items as you could buy until they wouldn’t let you buy any more. Then I went to the shopping preview and I spent $1,000, I’m not ashamed to say. After that, I made my mother go to the Target in Daytona Beach, Florida, and I’m still not satisfied. I bought an ottoman, I bought a million dishes, several bath mats, shower curtains, sheets…literally everything. Missoni is my favorite, so the Target collab was really my dream of all time. Jason Wu is amazing and the girls I work with are crazy for it, but it’s not for me to wear.

Pining for a touch of karma this weekend? Look no further than Rachel Roy's Kindness is Always Fashionable Clutch, a stylish mash-up of ombre, slightly watercolor-esque textiles overlaid with a pop of tribal patterning. But there's nothing muted or washed about Roy's message, which is emblazoned on the face of the clutch. "The spirit of the children I met while in Ghana at OrphanAid Africa made it impossible to not do what I can to help improve their quality of life," Roy said of the project. Get your Ghana clutch for a reasonable $49 at Roy's website, Nordstrom, or in NYC at the department store's Soho-based retail concept, Treasure & Bond. Roy looks ravishing with the charitable clutchable in reach (or grasp!), non? Keep up the good work, Rach!

Here at chez Chic, we're in full-on NYFW mode: caffeinated, multitasking, and show schedule plotting accordingly! (As if you'd expect anything else! We've got so much delightful Daily-ness coming your way in less than two weeks, it's mildly insane.) So obviously, nothing sounds better than an "Inside Haute" package at The Carlyle, which kicks off on February 15 and runs through the post-NYFW weekend for those of us not bound for London (and then Milan...followed by Paris...). What's on the docket? Cocktails at Zac Posen's atelier, lunch with Donna Karan at her gorge Urban Zen spread downtown, a private tour of the Met's plum fashion archives, tea with Nadja Swarovski at the company's Gotham HQ, and bubbly with Sophie Theallet at her atelier. Divine! We'd probably pass on extra field trips to the tents for a trio of Fall '12 shows also included in the package, since Chic spends enough time hopping from Lincoln Center to MILK and everywhere in between. Just kidding! Let's be real, we'll probably be there, too. The bigger question is, anyone want to finance some much-needed R&R for Chic with a $795 room (or $1,900 suite for the luxe types)? Call The Carlyle at 212-570-7127 to get booking, darlings!

What's the latest from our fave Golden girl? Neapolitan's very own Kelly Golden checks in with Chic.
"I’m thrilled to announce that this February, Neapolitan Collection will become the first U.S. home for Sarah Besnainou’s sensational fine jewelry collection, Eternamé. After I first spotted Eternamé jewelry in Paris, I knew my customers would fall in love with the line just as I have. All of the fine Parisian jewelry is created at the Place Vendôme in Paris. Here, Eternamé is also handmade by top craftsmen and sourced from the highest quality stones and materials. Since each piece is individually produced, no two pieces are alike, even if they are the same design. Our clients will have the opportunity to meet designer, Besnainou, at our launch cocktail party on February 2. Prior to launching her collection in 2007, Besnainou worked at Christian Dior for seven years. Today, her jewelry draws inspiration from haute couture and the name, Eternamé, means 'make me eternal' in Greek. This stunning jewelry is sure to be an 'eternal' and treasured accessory in any fashionable woman’s wardrobe."
