Lydia Hearst Sues Gotham Magazine

Lydia Hearst is suing Gotham magazine and its Publisher, Jason Binn, for allegedly using a picture of her and fabricating quotes in an advert for something called Xante liqueur.

FishbowlNY has reached out to Gotham for a comment, but hasn’t heard back yet.

Somewhere, the people who work at Xante are jumping for joy, because this is the most press the liqueur has received in a long, long time. Maybe they should send her a case.

UPDATE:
We just spoke to someone at FGPR (they represent Gotham) and they had this to say:

To start, the issue is with Xante, not Gotham or Jason Binn. Publications cannot take responsibility for what clients give to them in artwork or ads. Also, at this time, they are not aware of anything formal, and no lawsuit has been brought against them.

Fashion Week: Designer Tara Subkoff Holds Press Screening So She Can Shun Press

Journalists look on as socialite and sometime actress Lydia Hearst seeks… something.

As an aspiring journalist/groveling intern, it’s hard to say which makes better punishment: sorting a million paper clips into piles by color, size and thickness; an hour on the rack locked away in a medieval dungeon; or, attempting to interview Imitation of Christ designer Tara Subkoff and socialite Lydia Hearst last night at the opening of their short film, Fame Fatale, written and directed by the designer to showcase her holiday line for Bebe.

Panty Raid: FBNY @ National Underwear Day

Penal.jpg
The underwear models gathered in some kind of bare-man holding pen, which it took all of two Champagnes to start calling the “penal colony.”

Dateline: 42nd and the End of the World (a.k.a. West Side Highway)
From the Dept. of: I see London, I see France

In these dark, post-Playgirl days, we wander as if in the desert, wondering where we’ll next get to ogle men read it for the articles imbibe in the name of undergarments. Which is to say, National Underwear Day came just in time, fete-ing itself Tuesday night with an unmentionables-heavy runway show viewed by a slew of reality show alums eating the most embarrassingly undersized appetizers we’ve ever had the opportunity to size up. Pseudo-celebs and skivvy pictures after the jump.

Hearst Heiress Gets Nude For BlackBook‘s Room Shoot

‘I can’t think of anything less fun than running a newspaper’

Looking for a magazine that defines random? Simply stay at any Thompson hotel and pick up the 96-page debut issue of Room 100, a custom publication by Black Book produced for … wait for it … the Thompson Hotel group.

In it, you’ll find Hearst family heiress-cum-model Lydia Hearst completely nude discussing the state of the newspaper industry. Naturally: “I can’t think of anything less fun than running a newspaper. I get my news off the internet.” The rest of the profile, though, is tough to take. See, she’s just like us civilians:

Hearst-Shaw has a hereditary work ethic, in evidence beyond getting up at ungodly hours to be primped and photographed for Heatherette, Louis Vuitton, Clinique and the like.

In his editor’s letter, Steve Garbarino namechecks everyone from Andy Warhol to William S. Burroughs to Hunter Thompson to Hemingway to Mark Twain — because, as you know, writers do love boutique hotels.

Also included in the issue: an Adrien Brody poolside pictorial, a Moby-led jaunt through the Lower East Side, an interview with Warhol photographer Christopher Makos, an errant profile of Siberia Bar owner-outlaw Tracy Westmoreland, and an oral history of the Whisky a Go Go.
