You’d think that a man who could get Tom Wolfe to accidentally wander in a side door on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange on B-Day, the day his private equity firm went public would get some attention in St. Tropez but apparently you’d think wrong. Oh yes, you’d think wrong (you’d also think: Es ist mir scheiss egal).
On Saturday, Tommy Hilfiger—TOMMY HILFIGER, not Ralph Lauren, but TOMMY HILFIGER— reportedly “drew a bigger crowd of admirers” at Club 55 than Stephen Schwarzman and his wife Christine. We don’t know about you, but we can’t think of anyone we’d rather gawk at/fawn over/ask for an autograph from/tell we’ve loved since he acquired Prime Hospitality and converted thirty-seven Wellesley Inns to the Extended StayAmerica brand than old crab hands. Or can we? Can we list some? What about: Christian Bale, Eric Bana, John Kraskinski, GOB, Paul Rudd.
Actually, that was our LIST. But, really, gets lets serious for a second—you would gladly trample Stephen Schwarzman for a moment with ______?
