Fern Mallis and One Criminally Dressed Designer | Dishing With a Global Ambassador

LunchAtMichaelsIt’s been somewhat of a mixed bag at Michael’s this month with plenty of the famous faces usually spotted on Wednesdays having already hightailed it outta here for the Hamptons, Nantucket and other chichi vacation spots. Between TCA, Allen & Co.’s recent summit for movers and shakers and the seemingly daily announcements touting seismic changes in publishing, we’ve also noticed it’s been a bit quieter (in terms of bold face names, not decibel level) at 55th and Fifth in recent weeks. Still, in service to our faithful readers, we kept our weekly date to check in on those intrepid power lunchers who are still dishing despite summer’s siren call.

Mickey Ateyeh, Diane Clehane, Bisila Bokoko and Judy Agisim.

Today I was joined by fashion industry insider Mickey Ateyeh, fresh off her vacation in Italy, who, it must be said, knows everyone who is anyone. Mickey put together today’s lunch to introduce me to her longtime pal, PR maven Judith Agisim, who, in turn, brought along her client Bisila Bokoko. I’d seen Judith in this very room many times but never had the occasion to meet her. And, as you already know, in certain circles, all roads lead to Michael’s.

Anderson ‘Not Good Fit’ for WPIX, Leaving for WNYW in 2012

Anderson Cooper is leaving his New York syndication home. Cooper, the popular CNN prime time host by night, who started his much anticipated talk show by day this fall, will say goodbye to WPIX/Channel 11, and hello to WNYW/Channel 5 in September.

WPIX, which debuted a 5 p.m. newscast anchored by Jodi Applegate on the same day Anderson launched, clearly was banking on inheriting the audience from his lead-in.

“We’re big fans of Anderson, but unfortunately the show is not a good fit for the station,” a WPIX spokeperson tells FishbowlNY.

Expounding on not being the right fit for Channel 11, the spokesperson added that with the various “conflict talk shows” in the morning, it wasn’t a “good fit” for their “daytime structure.”

The New Yorker on Bill Cunningham

2009_03_16_p154.jpgAs part of this week’s Style issue — featuring none other than Michelle Obama on the cover (David Brooks will no doubt be thrilled to note that the illustrated version of “thunder and and lightning” have been “put away”) — the New Yorker profiles the city’s original sartorialist Bill Cunningham, who is as much a staple of the Sunday Styles as the wedding announcements. (Also, this is sort of genius.)

The full article is only available to registered users (meaning! if you have a subscription you can access their digital reader online. Go here. Also, not that long ago we would have complained heartily about this, now it sort of just feels like practice). But here’s a taste…in case you were wondering how he decides on his colors.

A few summers ago, on upper Fifth Avenue, Bill Cunningham spotted a woman in her seventies, with a corona of laundry-detergent blue hair. Every day for a month after that, whenever he saw something cerulean or aqua or azure, he snapped a picture of it.
