Yes, the profile on Katie Grand in yesterday's Guardian is very interesting, especially to those young stylists, image makers, and wannabe editors who should realize that curating one's friends at an early age is just as important and insanely hard as picking one's outfits. But of course, we were totally distracted by Katie's rise to fashion fame - founding POP Magazine, sharing creative credit with Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton, discretely not dropping Giorgio Armani's name despite the fact that she's also their stylist - and way more consumed by this paragraph: "When I met Grand she'd just been to New York for a POP shoot with the art photographer Ryan McGinley and model Agyness Deyn. She'd never worked with McGinley but he said he'd like to photograph Agyness, whom of course Grand knew, and Grand suggested they should do some nudes, because Agyness had never done a nude shoot, and McGinley agreed. 'And then a week later he sent me this reference photograph of kids falling off a fire escape - it was from the 1950s I think - and said he'd really like to have her falling. And naked. So we ended up with two stunt men and Agyness jumping naked from five stories onto a huge huge crash mat. It was incredible. Say it with us now: O. M. G. How they managed to pull off a naked girl falling - over and over again - from a fire escape on a public street in New York, with no indecent exposure charges, is a totally different matter.
