Don’t expect a few Vogue covers to guarantee a chummy run-in with Lady Wintour. This was the hard lesson learned by Paulina Porizkova at last week’s amfAR gala, where, after making the red-carpet rounds with Hollywood gentry, the regal-jawed stunner took a powder-room break, only to run into the Queen of Narnia herself. Apparently suffering from fashion amnesia, the editrix hardly registered the model’s greeting, despite Porizkova’s three cover appearances. As the shunned supermodel puts it: “Her large eyes in her large head flickered.”
But all is not lost as it revealed Porizkova’s impressive penning skills, with choices lines like: “And with the slightest nod, one that may have been a twitch, she left me standing at the sinks.” Priceless. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, the scene in the bathroom was rescued by a benevolent Olsen like an episode of Touched by an Angel.
