Another day, another party. Interview and The Andy Warhol Museum had a shindig last night at the Standard Spa as Art Basel week continues. This gathering had something we've never seen before: An Andy Warhol flashmob! 30 "Dancing Andys" from South Florida-based Focal Point Dance Studios and Tae Talent flooded the party in white wigs and Andy's signature specs. Guests including Eddie Borgo, Joseph Altuzarra, Jefferson Hack, Jenne Lombardo, Dan Ragone, Tenten Wu, Patrick Duffy, Christopher Bollen and Cator Sparks also got a look at a few minutes of Andy's never-before-seen film, San Diego Surf.

Last night, Socialite turned designer Cornelia Guest dropped into a jam-packed Bloomingdale's to promo her cruelty-free vegan handbag line among fans and longtime friends like James Mischka and Mark Badgley. Currently, Guest is gearing up for the May launch of her vegetarian cookbook Simple Pleasure, and the "I'd Rather Go Naked than Wear Fur" PETA campaign in which the blonde beauty poses au naturel. But, first! A Chic chat with you know who.     

Congrats on your bags. What's the reaction been like so far?
People are so surprised that you really can't tell it's not leather, and most people love that you can wipe it off if it gets dirty. Plus, all the bags are very light. I don't know about you, but my bag is like a mobile condominium!

Do you have any pets?
I have nine dogs, a donkey and a tortoise. Miss Olive, one of my dogs, is traveling with me for the first time. She's looking at me saying, 'I want another biscuit.'

Did you say donkey?
She's actually a miniature donkey--someone gave her to me as a present. Her name is Madonna. She thinks she's a dog and tries to run around and come into the house.

What are your other pets' names?
Socrates is the tortoise. Bear is my adopted Great Pyrenees. Oscar is a chihuahua I found in the dumpster. Then Lily, Roxy, Cassidy, Pansy, and Winston, my Jack Russell...is that nine?

Close! Where in the world do they all sleep?
Winston and Oscar sleep on my bed. Olive does, too. Bear, my big dog, tries to, but the little ones won't let him. The rest of my animals sleep wherever they want, usually in my room. We've got a full house!

Sergio Says! Weekly Musings from Marie Claire (and Beyond...)

Be still, Sergio's heart: It's BETTY! Be still, Sergio's heart: It's BETTY!

From Cyndi Lauper to Betty White, it's a week of kickass lasses for Sergio Kletnoy, Chic's adored chronicler of all things concerning JoCo, Marie Claire, and Brit crooners you need to download ASAP. Our only question is, when is Hearst launching "Sergio Appreciation Day"?! Oh, wait. That's every day around here, darling. 

Monday, 1 p.m.
If only every Monday was as great as today! The Marie Claire offices were closed for “Hearst Appreciation Day” (and boy, do I appreciate it!). So I took full advantage. Within 10 seconds of walking out of my building, I ran into Rick Ocasek, the lead singer of The Cars, who, by the way, is married to ‘80s supermodel Paulina Porizkova. I had to restrain myself from singing, “You might think I’m crazywhich he probably would assume I was. Then I headed off to a boozy brunch with my friend Viv, followed by a visit to the MET, and the incredible Maurizio Cattelan exhibit at the Guggenheim. The provocative career retrospective features 123 works, ranging from politics, history, and organized religion and is not to be missed! Later that evening, on my way to dinner with Ashley Afriye (Nina Garcia’s right hand) and Molly Dickson (assistant to Leslie Fremar, who styles everyone from Charlize Theron to Reese Witherspoon), I ran into one of my favorite supermodels, THE BOSS’ bestie and Project Runway All Stars co-star, Angela Lindvall. We air kissed and gossiped about the upcoming season (don’t believe everything you’ve read). I also tried to convince her to tweet more. Girl’s only got 2,000 followers. Come on, guys, this is a goddamn supermodel! Follow her @angela_lindvall.

Tuesday, 2:45 p.m.
Not every day do you get to witness JoCo schmoozing with hip-hop royalty Reverend Run of—like I need to say it—Run DMC. I had to do a double take when I came back from lunch only to find THE BOSS mid-convo with the Godfather of Rap. She has officially become the coolest editor-in-chief in town. (I only wish she was wearing her Adidas.) Still reeling, I grabbed MC senior editor Jessica Henderson and rushed off to SD26 for the annual TV Land party. Three words: Betty. Fu*****. White. I never, ever, ever do red carpets, but this was my only chance of interviewing Sue Ann Nivens, aka Rose Nylund, aka Elka Ostrovsky. I thought I’d gone to heaven: I made her laugh, she touched my hand, and asked me my name. Do I need to go on? Oh yeah, I do have proof. Once inside the party, she took only five photos, and I was in one of them. As if that wasn’t enough, I also got to interview Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Donald Faison, and Wayne Knight (Newman on Seinfeld). The best part of the night was standing next to Zach Braff, and listen to him tell his date that he wanted Betty to be his Nanna. Get in line, buddy.

Wednesday, 9 p.m.
Any time I can hang with my friends, I drop everything. Case in point: MC’s Zanna Roberts-Rassi hosted a “Girls Night Out” at the flagship Benefit boutique in Soho and invited me and MC bookings editor Jeremy Spears for a night of champagne and makeovers. Obviously, this face does not need a makeover, so I came for the free booze. (Jeremy, on the other hand, had a face mask on within three minutes of our arrival.) The room was packed with Zanna’s friends: Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman of Marchesa, Coco Rocha, photographer Zoe Buckman (David Schwimmer’s wife), designer Misha Nonoo, and, to my surprise, my favorite redhead on the planet, the ying to my yang, Taylor Tomasi Hill, (newly appointed style director of my favorite fashion startup Moda Operandi). Our gang capped the night at a dive bar around the corner with lots of fried food, cheap drinks, and an amazing jukebox. ‘Tis the season.

Thursday, 12:30 p.m.
After last week’s Page Six-inspiring visit to the Hearst cafeteria, where she ladled her own squash and sweet potato soup, Cyndi Lauper was back for a visit with yours truly. I’d been waiting for this moment since 1984. We talked about everything, but most importantly, about her benefit concert “Home For The Holidays” this Sunday at the Beacon Theatre with Norah Jones, Amy Lee, Debbie Harry, Rosie O’Donnell, Cassandra Wilson, Wanda Sykes, and so many others, to help raise awareness about LGBT youth homelessness. I could gush for hours about Cyndi’s music, about how I listen to “Change of Heart” at least once a day and how it makes me want to run down the street and dance without a care in the world, how I own every album, how I’ve seen her live on countless occasions, and how close she comes to matching my passion for the Queen of the Universe, Madonna. But I’d much rather tell you how incredibly kind, sweet, generous and REAL this woman is. (So real, in fact, that she even rides the subway. So if you’re a fan, get on the 1 line!) She is the epitome of class, and it’s meeting people like her that reminds me of how lucky I really am to be able to work with such amazing people.

Friday, 11 a.m.
This week’s mixtape: Finally on the Drake bandwagon and his latest, “Crew Love," the collaboration with The Weeknd. The song is so smooth, you can spread it on bread and serve it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I’m obsessed with French music, and this week I discovered a French-Canadian female singer by the name of Coeur De Pirate, who’s new single “Adieu” is super catchy and sounds like something straight out of the catalog from French pop royalty, Francoise Hardy and Vanessa Paradis. Next up is “Dedication To My Ex” the latest from Lloyd and Andre 3000. Lloyd sounds like a young Michael Jackson and the infectious tune is a hybrid of Cee-Lo and Jackson 5. Ever since seeing Ellie Goulding opening for Katy Perry, I have been playing her debut album non-stop, and the one song that is on constant repeat in my head is “Lights." Trust me, you’ll LOVE it! And finally, “F*** With You” by Bob Sinclair and Sophie Ellis-Bextor, this is the ultimate dance tune, the beat is hot, the vocals are flawless, and how can you go wrong with Sophie singing dirty words? Find it by any means necessary!
