Weekend Reading List

I've got a thick stack of T The New York Times Style Magazine to plow through. My friend who lives in New York sent them to me in a bulky package. He collects them for me and when he judges that it's time, mails them. The last time I saw him was in New York in 2005. He says he will be back soon, possibly within the year. But I'm wondering at the wisdom of this. If he's been waiting for his green card for more than a decade, doesn't it make sense for him to stick it out a little bit longer? Should he give it up this year? And why? I've got old magzines of my own to flip through before shelving. Bazaar Oct 1998 had a couture spread by Patrick Demarchelier of Maggie Rizer in the L'Ile Saint Louis. Remember Maggie Rizer? I have a Vogue UK Feb 1991 with a platinum blonde Linda on the cover wearing Chanel. I have a Jul 1989 Vogue with some really glorious pictures of Tatiana Patiz by Peter Lindbergh. Remember Tatiana Patiz? Lastly, I have a Dec 1997 L'Uomo Vogue with a Brad Pitt cover story shot be Steven Klein, a Deborah Turbeville photo-essay, a painterly Paolo Roversi spread, and a fashion spread with all Chinese models called Oriental West Coast. The good old days!
