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.
