Vain World

I often like to say, “I told you so”, but I do not. In this case, I did say, “you should have trusted your instincts”. One of my friends from Kuala Lumpur has bought, against his better judgment, a copy of The World In Vogue: People Places Parties, and regretted it.

I am a judge of covers; I cringed at the sight of Giselle, and I do turn away from anything with Plum Sykes in it.

Shortly after lunch, I received this SMS from him:

“Bought Vogue People Places parties this morning. Finished in 5 mins. Same chapters on Babe Paley, CZ Guest, Ali MacGraw, Jackie, etc; Capote’s black and white ball. Can’t one escape them? And, of course, no-hopers Aerin, Eliza Borden, who have done nothing. Just realised Hamish has absolutely nothing new to say about Vogue or fashion and, worse, has no originality. At least Andre looks forward despite his crassness. Koda is a genius compared to them both!”

Well, who do you expect to see if HiSoParty were to produce a book?

The World In Vogue: People Places Parties is now available at Kinokuniya for 2510 baht.
