Attention: this is not a test; this is a genuine warning to steer clear of Chelsea's Metropolitan Pavilion tomorrow unless you'd like to do one or all of these things: 1- buy discounted Alexander McQueen 2- get cast as an extra in the next Sex and the City movie 3- get clawed and/or trampled.
That's right; Alexander McQueen's first big sample sale takes place at 123 West 18th Street tomorrow from 9-7pm (Wednesday 9-6pm), at the same time as hopefuls audition to be stiletto-wearing, Cosmo-swilling SATC extras (SAG members 10-12:30; non-union 1:30-4). Say your prayers tonight, people.
Sadly, we have no prior SATC open castings or McQueen sales to set a precedent, and thus who knows what sort of shitshow will descend upon Chelsea tomorrow. You can bet we'll be there to cover it with all the yumminess of a liveblog. Now where did we put those trusty
brass knuckles Elizabeth & James rings?
