Lost in the archives of our interview files, Chic dusted off a tape that captured a moment with Mickey Boardman. Behold yet another reason we can't get enough of Paper's creative director. "I just had dinner with Marjorie Gugelmann, who’s also on Twitter. Even though we knew each other socially, we got to know each other a lot better on Twitter. I follow a lot of gay porn stars and I’ll retweet what they say," Boardman explained. "Every time I would be about to retweet one of them, I would think to myself, 'Now, does Marjorie Gugelmann need to read about this muscle-bound porn star?' She ran up to me at a Halloween party dressed as a clown or something and she said, 'Your tweets are so great. The dirtier, the better. I love it! Never hesitate.' So, now the floodgates are open."

In this 1967 interview, Chic's gamine gal crush Twiggy gets bashful about segueing from runway success to superstardom as a singer. The pixie-coiffed waif agrees via an affirming giggle with a newspaper's description of her as "a shy, awkward schoolgirl at morning assembly who hopes no one will notice her." Uber-humble Twiggy acknowledges the many talented songstresses out there, and therefore lays claim to no expectations for her singing success. What else did Chic learn? Well, it sounds like completing the record was a bit of a chore - and a long time coming! Her record deal was inked before Twiggy became the face of the swinging sixties. Curious? Listen in on the modster's musical chops for her one and only UK hit from a decade later in 1977, Here I Go Again.

It's not a bad thing to be besties with John Demsey. Last night, le M.A.C maestro and his pal Alina Cho celebrated their birthdays (reveal their ages? we'd never dare!) with a "2nd Annual Pisces Party" at the former's UES townhouse. The crowd? Kinda fabulous, from Aerin Lauder to Ellen von Unwerth, Arlenis Sosa to Marilyn Minter. But you just want to see the pictures, so without further ado—the Gallery!

What's going on in this picture? Glasses on? Glasses off? We can't tell! The Row's Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen look so serious in this shot, but we're pretty sure this was taken before their nomination for Swarovski's award for Womenswear. Congrats, girls! Not-so-Chic confession: We still can't tell them apart.

Last week, The Daily kicked off "The Assistant Files" with Sergio Kletnoy, the fiercest assistant to ever set foot in Hearst Tower. Want more juicy tidbits and hilarious deets on life as Marie Claire EIC Joanna Coles' gatekeeper? Every week, Chic will be checking in with Sergio about what's going on in the MC offices, the Hearst caf, and beyond.
Sunday, 12 a.m.
My week began early with a birthday roast for a friend’s dad—he’s a dentist to the stars—at the club Kiss & Fly. Before listening to some filthy jokes, I found myself on the dance floor with Julianna Margulies and (wait for it) Martha Stewart. It’s a good thing.
Monday, 7:30 a.m.
My day always starts off with me trying on half of my closet 20 minutes before heading off for work. I settled on a Raf Simons sweatshirt, Mishka baseball cap and a fresh pair of Y-3 kicks. It was Joanna’s first day back in the office after Paris fashion week, and I had to get in early, tea in hand, as the list of new looks and accessories she had to have right NOW will be longer than usual. Sometimes I wish I could be like Bubbles, the notoriously stupid assistant on Absolutely Fabulous. But I guess I wouldn’t have lasted this long at Marie Claire if I just played dumb.
Monday, 11:47 a.m.
The best thing about working at Hearst is our cafeteria. Every single day the staff counts down the minutes until we can race to the third floor and check out the Chef’s Special. I lucked out—it was my fave, the most delicious Asian chopped chicken salad I have ever tasted. I wish to marry it.
Wednesday, 2:14 p.m.
Someone in the accessories department gave me an amazing eco-shopper by Thursday Friday. It’s a basic totebag screen-printed to look like a Birkin. Before I can send it to my mom, Joanna spied it at my desk, and it suddenly become my mission to find one for her ASAP. As it turns out, the "Together" bag already has a three-month waiting list thanks to some legal issues Thursday Friday is having with the real Birkin folks. But even a lawsuit won’t stop me from scoring one for my boss. I was determined to have it on Joanna’s desk by the end of the day and, as usual, I did not disappoint. My telephone charm is legendary.
Thursday, 12:30 p.m.
I still really miss working in music from time to time, especially on a week when three amazing albums land on my desk: Britney, Ellie Goulding and Beth Ditto. My co-workers and I have been obsessively listening to all three on repeat for days now. Late night, my side of the office can get pretty rowdy.
Friday, 10 a.m.
After a crazy week, the thing I’m looking forward to the most is tonight’s screening of the new documentary Bill Cunningham New York. That man is a legend and a true visionary. All I have to do is get Joanna out the door, loaded up with copy to read over the weekend in her new Thursday Friday bag, and keep my Blackberry and iPhone on at all times over the weekend just in case THE BOSS needs me.
