Terry Richardson is really taking things up a notch in the self-impersonation department. The photographer, who has never met a thumbs-up he didn't like, got none other than Kate Moss to don a Terry mask (!!!) for her recent appearance on his online diary. Color us impressed. How will he top that? Stay tuned!

More birthday antics ensued for Sergio Kletnoy last week (though, surprisingly, not to belatedly celebrate his own this time around!), followed by a bit of babysitting, a new British music obsession, and hobnobbing with a Housewife. The week wound down with a rummage through The Boss' purse. All part of the job, of course! The Daily's "The Assistant Files" kicked off with Sergio, and each week we're following his escapades as Marie Claire EIC Joanna Coles' gatekeeper. As always, don't forget to peruse the Gallery of Sergio's fantastic photographic evidence!
Saturday, 10 p.m.
The Marie Claire fashion crew will use any excuse to party, and tonight, we partied till the sun came up. In honor of associate market editor Abby Kalicka (or as I refer to her, ‘My Munchkin’) turning the big 3-0, we converged on Toro Lounge in Tribeca for the first stop in a long night of debauchery. After waiting for a drink at the bar for 45 minutes alongside preppy banker dorks and Jersey Shore castoffs (the things I do for friends), I was quickly over the place. I talked the crew into leaving Toro for Monster, our fave spot in the West Village. The club was packed with shirtless boys, drunk girls and everything in between. Five minutes into arrival, the birthday girl found herself in a dance-off against some of Manhattan’s burliest drag queens, which looked a lot like that dance scene from White Chicks. With our drinks up in the air, we cheered Abby on and danced the night away. Next stop: a private room at Karaoke Boho at 2:30 a.m. for an hour of really bad off-key singalongs to some of the cheesiest songs ever made. (My take on "Puttin’ on the Ritz" was roundly booed by all of my so-called friends. Haters.) So much for my dream of becoming the next American Idol. Cut to 4 a..m.—we’re wolfing down countless slices of the best pizza in NYC, at Bleeker Street Pizza, and wondering where we lost the birthday girl.
Sunday, 10:30 a.m.
Jogged the Central Park loop in a desperate bid to sober up before my babysitting gig this afternoon. By 1 p.m., Baby Graydon and I were crashed on the couch watching the Jim & Pam wedding episode from The Office while he rocked out to Chris Brown’s “Forever”. Who said white boys can’t dance?
