The art of parties and beyond

Another magazine, Jodie Foster
Sep. 11, 2005: While we could gush about her for days, who could have have guessed that uber-shy, double-Oscar-winner Jodie Foster would be the latest cover girl of Another magazine, that stalwart of indie publishing? (Fun fact: She dubs her own lines in all the French versions of her films.) Yet there she was, first on the cover of the biannual British magazine's ninth issue, then in the flesh at its U.S. release party at Accompanied Library, the members-only-club-within-a-club (and, more importantly, the library-with-a-bar) at the National Arts Club on Gramercy Park. According to our sources, she contacted the mag after seeing the Drew Barrymore spread in the last issue, and what editor wouldn't run with a cover coup like Jodie, clad in Armani? Another pleasant surprise for the eyes was host Eric Villency, president of the posh furniture company Maurice Villency, who's not only the grandson of its founder but also an ex-Calvin Klein and Abercrombie superbeef. But the most shocking sight of all was Pete Doherty on his best behavior for the duration of the party—who ever would have expected it unless he'd mixed up his meds? He even sported a few more healthy pounds than we'd previously seen. Among the other sixty or so guests pondering what was obviously some rare alignment of stars and fashion celebs were Jeremy Scott; Another's editor, Jefferson Hack with model-girlfriend Anouck Lepere; Kate Moss, Hack's ex- and the mother of his child and Doherty's current flame; Camilla Nickerson; Mario and Francesca Sorrenti; and Terry Richardson who, contrary to reports, did not see a worm on his plate, but rather a shriveled pepper. All the while, models Natalia Vodianova, Jessica Miller and Angela Lindvall vamped for the cameras—like we've said before, one good (three-quarter) turn deserves Another.
