Last night, Chic hopped over to FAO Schwartz for the 20th annual Bunny Hop charity carnival, hosted by The Society of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Surrounded by an avalanche of playthings, Chic wondered about a few toys of note for the stylish attendees and their tykes...

What type of toy did you want the most, but weren't allowed to have?
Tina Fey:
The Barbie dream house with the elevator. I haven’t bought it for my daughter… not yet, at least.
Nina Garcia: A bicycle, I guess my mother didn’t want me to be out in the streets.
Shoshanna Lonstein-Gruss: Barbie. Now my daughter has one, or two, or a few. I only wanted them because, but I survived. I’m fine now.

Which toy drives you absolutely crazy?
Tina Fey:
My daughter has a little piano that plays songs, and sometimes I just want to smash it.
Nina Garcia: The trumpet. My son doesn't play songs, he just makes noise on it.
Shoshanna Lonstein-Gruss: The ones I wish would disappear? They do disappear. All of them.

AttentionAndy Cohen! We have found the ultimate audition tape for your next hit Bravo reality show starring... Daphne Guinness. The eccentric socialite was interviewed by a reporter from Brazil backstage at Gareth Pugh, and this is pure brilliance. When the show goes to series, we implore you to keep the bumpy camera work seen here, the wacky sound-bites ("I try to put on weight, but I can't. I either have to go to Baby Gap or Gareth.") and don't change a thing about this woman. She carries around a crystal ball? This is heaven. Trust!

Our look of The Daily belongs to designer, southern sweetheart and Chic columnist Wes Gordon in a YSL suit and Tom Ford shirt. Somebody knows how to work that camera! Judy Dimon threw a cocktail party in the designer's honor last night. We're loving the toned-down locks, loves.

Brother and Sister Brother and Sister

Philip and Courtney Crangi are not only brother and sister, but they also work together, so they seemed like the perfect duo to answer our first "How well do you REALLY know him?" quiz. Can Courtney answer even the most bizarre questions about her CFDA award-winning bro? Her answers astounded us!  

 

What was Philip's worst subject in school?

Philip: Math! 

Courtney: Math, spelling, waking up to even get there. He’s always had the gift to see past the b.s. That, combined with being infinitely smarter and wiser than most of our teachers, led to a general disinterest in school.  But he’s always been an avid learner. His ability to retain, recall, and apply information has blown my mind since we were kids. He’s one of the smartest men you’ll ever meet.     

 

What item of clothing does Philip wear the most?

Philip: I've been totally committed to my Comme/Doc Marten boots in ox blood. I haven't taken them off since I bought them in September. Also, my Canadian army parka because it been so f***ing cold!

 

Courtney: He doesn’t repeat much: old APC jeans, but that’s a little cliché to say jeans. He goes through cycles.  This winter he’s been wearing a beautiful chunky, red Prada sweater, his Comme de Garcons/Dr. Marten boots, and always one of his vintage handkerchiefs.  

 

What is Philip's favorite thing to order at Pastis?

Philip: Chicken paillard salad

Courtney: Chicken paillard salad

 

What is Philip's favorite magazine?

Philip: World of interiors, Fantastic Man

Courtney: That’s a hard one. World of Interiors & The New Yorker?  As a kid it was Omni & National Geographic.  

 

What is Philip's favorite Stevie Nicks song?

Philip: "Bella Donna"

Courtney: "Bella Donna"


What is Philip's favorite movie?
Philip: Star Wars and anything from Woody Allen
Courtney: Stardust Memories

 

Who was Philip's best friend in second grade?

Philip: I guess Jeremy Jones.

Courtney: Our neighbor, Jeremy Jones, but really Mrs. Jones – Jeremy’s mom.  

 

Where did Philip meet his boyfriend?

Philip: The Pines, Fire Island. I know, it's hard to believe.

Courtney: Fire Island

 

Who would Philip like to meet?

Philip: Charlotte Rampling

Courtney: Charlotte Rampling? 

 

Who is Philip's favorite hero in fiction?

Philip: Somewhere between Sherlock Holmes and Anna Madrigal.

Courtney: Mrs. Madrigal, from Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City.

 

How does Philip groom his beard?

Philip: With some very sharp scissors and a lot of patience.

Courtney: With scissors, always leaving natural edges.  

 

What time does Philip set his alarm clock?

Philip: Ugh, I hate that phrase, "set your alarm." I'm not much of a morning person.

Courtney: Whatever time it is, he’s hitting the snooze a lot. We’re vampires, not morning people.
