An Interview With Marissa

An Interview With Marissa

By stupefying chance, I bumped into Marissa twice.

Once at the Whitney and once at the Met Museum. Each time she seemed to be working, like wearing-a-badge-and-on-the-clock working. From these two accidental encounters, one thing was crystal clear, when Marissa is around music should be playing. Metaphorically or actually, whatever is fine, as long as it’s nothing fustian, just a melody that sticks in your mind.

To happen upon Marissa once was most winsome but crossing paths with her twice caused me to have those cartoon stars in my eyes and dreamy half thoughts like, “Who is this enchantress that has the time, let alone the courage, to work at every museum in New York City?! Is she in fact, real? Could she be…”

In this interview, Marissa, museum employee, NY native and babe among a myriad of other things, graces us with her own sorta song… Full interview here

Sunday at the Met Museum is basically one big obstacle course of feet-dragging tourists. But after spotting a babe in the distance, it makes all the human slaloming worthwhile. Here is New York fashion designer Emilie Ghilaga whose style colors outside the lines of the Upper East Side uniform with a suede vintage Bogner ski jacket, snakeskin leggings and an irreproachable pair of Chucks. You can check out Emilie’s own collection here(Photo by Xavier Aaronson)  (more…)

A Babe Behind The Babe: An Interview With Amanda

A Babe Behind The Babe: An Interview With Amanda

Nevermind laughter; hypnotism is contagious.

The last time I caught myself really struck by another museum-goer was a few months ago, at the MET in New York. There was someone in standing so still in front of Giovanni Battista Tiepolo’s The Triumph of Marius that I myself was stuck in a competing stupor.

Her motionless concentration was as beautiful as the museum’s own four-corned majesty. Her name was Amanda and she was at the museum doing research for her latest novel.

Months had passed and echoes from our random encounter remained as vivid as ever. To quench our curiosity, we decided to track Amanda down, ask her a few questions about who she really is, in order to trade in our ephemeral hypnosis for a more permanent attraction.

Please tell me we’re in a museum and not some fat cat’s garish living room because I absolutely need to post this photo. Luckily, we’re at the Met, so it counts.

To be honest, this is getting embarrassing. Yet another lens crush on a girl plucked straight out of charm-ville. I hope I never see Alexandra again. It’ll save me the embarrassing spectacle of nervousness.

I’ve always loved the bleary eyed look on girls. It tells me they’re pooped from doing lots of awesome things but that they’re holding it together and down for whatever’s next. At the museum, even though I’m just walking around, slowness can be exhausting. Yana here has that syrupy look that hints that she would do it all over again, but perhaps only after a stiff drink. I like Yana and I’ve also heard she’s damn good photographer. (photo by Alex Serio)

Spotting a babe in rest mode proves that museums can be tiring and that perhaps more seating is necessary. The special thing about this encounter at the Met was her classic and unassuming outfit: all white everything with a splash of pink in the foot area.  Meagan is a fashion illustrator based in NYC and working on a line of illustrated scarves and handbags. She likes macarons and her tiny West Village apartment. Check out some of her illustrations here. (photos by Xavier Aaronson)

Amanda was spotted in a motionless gaze in front of Tiepolo’s 220 x 128 behemoth of a painting: ”The Triumph of Marius.” After snapping her out of her daze, Amanda was kind enough to let us take a few photos of her in full style mode. Hard to believe, but this was indeed a chance encounter. We later found out that Amanda spends a lot of time at the Met because she’s doing research for a novel she’s writing that’s set in the basement of the Met. So if you see her at the museum one day, make sure to wish her luck on her novel. (photo by Xavier Aaronson)
