At last! AT LAST! Tavi Gevinson's first contribution for xoJane.com has finally arrived. America's girl next door gives us her take on "What's in My Bag"—but the locker edition, loves. OMG! What do we learn? Tavi keeps tap shoes, a blue wig, Play-Doh, baseball cards, and a veil in her locker. We repeat: A veil! There are also some "normal" items in there like a French dictionary and a copy of A Midsummer Night's Dream, but we know you don't care about that. Tavi shares: "You know that kid in movies who opens their locker and stuff just falls out and knocks them to the ground? That's me!"  Someone call Hoarders! P.S. Do those books look read to you? Study up, darling!

Vanessa Minnillo isn't our usual turf, but we're making an exception today because this press release revealing all the details of her Vegas bachelorette weekend is too hilar to keep to ourselves.

 

"Hi there!  Let me know if you can get in a PHOTO of Vanessa Minnillo celebrating her bachelorette party in Vegas this weekend!  Link to download FREE PHOTOS below!  Most important thing to mention is Marquee Dayclub!  Thank you!

 

Vanessa Minnillo celebrated her upcoming nuptials with a weekend in Las Vegas.  The bachelorette party began on Friday at LAVO with dinner and dancing at the hot spot.  After a round of shots and a feast of signature Italian dishes, the bride-to-be and friends took over a VIP table where they danced to the sounds of DJ Politik.  She jumped into the DJ booth, taking the mic and telling the crowd, “I’m about to get married.  I’m about to get a ball and chain…but not yet and tonight’s my bachelorette party!”  She also invited the first person who came to her table and showed an ID proving their birthday was Thursday, Friday, or Saturday could come join her table – an offer she made good when a club patron celebrating his birthday approached the table with his girlfriend.

 

Surprises were in store when Minnillo was serenaded by a midget impersonating her fiancé Nick Lachey.  The pint-sized performer sang a song from Lachey’s former band 98 Degrees while removing his shirt.  She was a good sport and donned the traditional bachelorette sash and crown while celebrating.

 

The party continued on Saturday at Marquee Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas as Minnillo and the group commanded a cabana at the roof deck pool party.  Always the gracious hostess, she found a bachelor celebrating his own upcoming wedding and invited the groom and his friends to take a dip in her cabana’s infinity Jacuzzi.  The future Mrs. Lachey was treated to a cake topped with a sugar ring from Gimme Some Sugar as she danced around with her friends and posed for photos, showing off make up from Violet Hour Hair | Nails | Beauty at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas."

Chic popped by Persol's shade-y soiree to toast "Magnificent Obsessions: 30 Stories of Craftsmanship in Film" at Center 548 in Chelsea. So did the likes of Elise Overland, Sir Ben Kingsley, Lance Bass, Famke Jenssen and Monty Python comedic mastermind Terry Gilliam. The event marked the opening of the "Magnificent Obsessions" installation. So Chic asked around for a few au courant obsessions among the partygoers--besides their new pairs of Persols, of course. 

What are you obsessed with—right this minute? 

Rebecca Minkoff: Voluminous dresses. 
Shanae Grimes: Wedge shoes. They've been saving my life in New York City. Wedge shoes, literally, have been saving my life. 
Genevieve Jones: I'm obsessed with everything. Whatever I love I'm obsessed with. Okay, I'm obsessed with boys!  
Vincent Piazza: You know what? Lately I've been obsessed with my work. I'm in the middle of shooting season two of Boardwalk Empire.  
Dree Hemingway: Mexican food is my personal obsession, right now and always. Maybe guacamole is my obsession. And watching bad movies on airplanes.
