Remember that quick-witted 10th grade teacher who had awful style but knew just the way to simultaneously put you in your place while making you look up to her? That’s exactly how I feel about the stern demeanor from security guards and their occasional fun-crushing in the name of something you respect, like art. (photo by Xavier Aaronson)

Finding the measure of a babe is as much about the intangible charms that light up an interaction as the clothes that keep them incandescent.

Janelle was leaving the museum just as we were entering it. She offered us a generous u-turn after asking if she’d join us on a whimsical stroll through the Maris Lassnig exhibition. Who would have known our brief encounter would be crowned with an impromptu tango.

Janelle is a writer and when the computer screen make her eyes feel like their melting, she punches bags until her hands hurt.

In large, anonymous cities there are moments when being open to an unexpected stranger promises an encounter that’s routinely brief, largely banal and occasionally unforgettable. Rachel was one of those fortunate meetings that we have all too rarely but that linger with us for longer than we expect. It was a lazy Sunday afternoon and we crossed paths at the MoMA PS1 in Queens, NY. It’s hard to explain what lured us to her; it could have been her flourishing yet holed-up sweatshirt or perhaps her vibrant choice of lipstick, which contended well with Maria Lassnig’s intensely hued artwork. Only lasting a handful of minutes, our bracing interaction with Rachel was like a vivid blur. Soon after, she excused herself, explaining that she should hurry back to her studio, where she planned to use that day’s museum stimulation to work on some new designs for her lingerie label. (photo by Xavier Aaronson)

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Pari is kind of like our muse.  On her own blog, she’s taken the intersection between fashion and art to another level by putting her own stunning twist to dressing for the arts.

Pari pairs her style with the exhibition she plans on visiting. Last weekend, we stretched our own rules that narrow down who we babe’out with. Instead of bumping into some art-gawking style maven by chance encounter, Pari and I actually scheduled a rendezvous at the MoMA PS1. 

I’m not proud of our code-breaking orchestration but sometimes you gotta bend the law for an opportunity to achieve something exquisite. And in this case, Pari is too ill for the law.

I was freezing my tail off in Olafur Eliasson’s immersive  and subzero installation “Your waste of time” at the MoMA PS1 when my vision  stumbled upon an equally shivery museum-goer by the name of Samantha.

After exchanging a few teeth-chattering words and snapping a quick photo, I learned that she had just returned to Brooklyn from a harrowing adventure with some teen exorcists. Don’t worry, she filmed the whole demon-evicting process for us to enjoy.  So… ENJOY!

I was pretty much hooked after that.

The more I asked Samantha about the documentaries she had up her sleeve, the more this voracious producer was transforming into a blonde swiss army knife of the film world.

Check out her website. It’s an eyeball parade of fun and brilliance.

Debra at MoMA PS1 Warm Up photo by Xavier Aaronson

Debra was spotted at the MoMA PS1′s Warm Up party wearing what’s commonly referred to as a “playsuit” in England. Considering Debra’s sprightly demeanor, it’s a superiorly fitting term than our American “summer dress” appellation. Also, up front and center, is her well-traveled yet vibrantly spiffy Venice Biennale tote bag.

In a bland hallway, I saw a wandering pile of flowy confetti. Phyllis was spotted in the foyer of the MoMA PS1. She admitted that her jacket was scooped up at the dollar store and I loved her that much more for it. Good style doesn’t need to come at an exorbitant price. Plus, it’s probably best to save your loot for the museum entrance, anyway.

Often times, girls will inspire a guy’s keen sense of style; especially if that girl shops in the men’s section of vintage stores. Donning his steady’s psych-African print shirt and cracking a slight Peter Pan grin, it was hard to relinquish the impulse not to photograph Chris during visit at the MoMA PS1.

Some dudes get that funny foliage feeling when October rolls around and without warning, they get all dapper on us. Timothée is a graphic designer and was spotted on his way out of the MoMA PS1. (Photo by Xavier Aaronson)

A Babe Behind The Babe: An Interview With Jessica Tom

A Babe Behind The Babe: An Interview With Jessica Tom

Share on FacebookShare on TwitterPin it on Pinterest+1Share on TumblrShare via email

What we liked most about Jessica was her indulgence. Within a few seconds of spotting Jessica glide through Frances Stark’s My Best Thing exhibition at the MoMA PS1, her sniper-like focus on the exhibited words and full disregard for anyone around her completely fascinated us. Without breaking her concentration too much, we asked to take her photo and then off she went. The memory lingers in a way that’s more vivid than other babe encounters at the museum.

We managed to track Jessica down and ask her some things about herself that we didn’t get a chance to delve into during our initial 15-second interaction back in January. We interviewed Jessica about what artists excite her senses the most, the exciting madness of Yayoi Kusama’s Fireflies exhibit, and how museums could loosen rules a tad bit more to make visits more relaxing. Full interview here.
