MIDTOWN—Last night, Karlie Kloss posed for Dior in the middle of Times Square. Patrick Demarchelier shot her standing amongst the tourists and neon looking very beautiful and absolutely freezing in a pair of tiny little sandals. [Fashion Indie]
PARK SLOPE—The Observer asked a bunch of locals what they think the Gowanus Whole Foods will mean for the Park Slope Food Co-op. Writer Amy Sohn, whose book Prospect Park West satirized the neighborhood, thinks that the chain might help rid the co-op of newcomers who didn't grow up in the city. "They probably come from another part of the country where Whole Foods is very fetishized, and they have been waiting," she said. "They want to replicate their sort of Mall of America experience in New York City, so they love that you can have a Whole Foods in Brooklyn." [NYO]
