"D on't you want me baby" by Human League was the grand- finale tune at the Valentino prêt-à-porter show in Paris last month, with Dallas' beloved Owen Wilson in character as Hansel from the 2001 cult movie Zoolander. As he strutted his stylish attire down the runway alongside Ben Stiller, the fashionable crowd giggled at the blatant plug for the Zoolander sequel, slated for release next February. A month prior, Wilson attended the successful Aging Mind Foundation gala, Living with Bob: A Salute to Robert A. Wilson, in honor of his father. In all their glory, Usher and Blake Shelton rocked the house at the AT&T Cowboys Stadium for United Way Metropolitan of Dallas' Unite. Forever. Gala. in celebration of the 90th Anniversary — see our party coverage on page 10 and 12. In this issue, fashion covets the beauty of artful follies in "Parallel Paths," and we chat with shoe genius Giuseppe Zanotti, who recently opened his boutique in Highland Park Village.

But this issue promises to be perhaps the most memorable and collectible of all, bearing Marilyn Minter's Redhead, 2015, on the occasion of the artist's game-changing four-city traveling retrospective, "Marilyn Minter: Pretty/Dirty," which debuts at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston April 18 (through August 2). On page 21, read our exclusive Q&A between CAMH director Bill Arning, co-curator of the show — the museum is a co-organizer of the Minter tour — and learn what went down during Arning's first studio visit in the 1980s, why the concept of "juicy" matters, and Miz Minter's role in "paradoxing the norm" in paintings and photos that bear the tropes of fashion gone awry, depicting the gritty, glamorous romance of beautiful decay, from a model's dirt- encrusted Jimmy Choos to smears of designer makeup in meltdown mode and skeins of baroque pearls bitten and swallowed. Our cover shot is the latest work featured in the survey, the very final image included on the pages of the exhibition catalog. The 72-by-60-inch enamel- on-metal painting can be seen in our photo shoot, left, hanging on Minter's studio wall, paint still wet. Talk about fresh content. Catherine D.

Event is gratis, but reservation is required, DESIGN DAZE: Designer Barbara Westbrook S pring has sprung, although it was hard to tell with the terribly tumultuous weather we had in Texas this winter — how many snow days in Dallas? There was no need to travel far to enjoy a winter wonderland this year, although, yes, we all still made our yearly pilgrimages to Colorado! Hopefully the March showers supplanted the proverbial April showers, and we are off to a beautiful spring. That universal time of renewal has seeped its way into our offices. While one city's loss is another's gain, our amazing Briana Buxbaum — a veteran of the Houston team and a media pro — has set up a new and more senior post in the Dallas office as co-associate publisher of PaperCity Dallas. The Houston office laments her departure, but we know she will do an amazing job heading up the Dallas sales team, alongside 15-year PaperCity veteran Margaret Stafford. Across the board, we are staffing up: a new yet-to-be-announced digital director, new sales reps in each city and a unique find, Farrell Lawo, a marketing whiz with a strong digital pedigree who, while planted in Houston, will rain her marketing expertise across our enterprise, envisioning new advertising and marketing platforms, special events and social media initiatives. Please welcome all of our new hires, and don't forget to visit the new papercitymag. com to get a dose of all things fresh and a glimpse of the stunning Ferragamo ads that will be taking over the site for the month of April. Monica Bickers Publisher Decoration: What's new in the design whirl 28 F or more than 40 years, The Crystal Charity Ball Ten Best Dressed Women of Dallas Fashion Show and Luncheon has cemented its reputation as one of the most highly anticipated events on the fall charity circuit. Seats are snapped up by fashion lovers and philanthropists alike, and this year's coveted event, Friday, September 18, promises even more excitement with a show-stopping runway as Oscar de la Renta's new creative director, Peter Copping, makes his debut for the fashion house at Neiman Marcus Downtown. The innovative designer, whose first collection with de la Renta was shown in February at New York Fashion Week, was selected by Mr. de la Renta himself before his sudden passing last year. With big shoes to fill, Copping is dazzling his audience as he starts a new chapter for the illustrious brand. Modeling these eminent ensembles for the Fall 2015 collection, will be the 2015 honorees — to be announced April 15 — led by Michal Powell, Crystal Charity Ball chairman and Mary Clare Finney, luncheon and fashion show chairman. For information on underwriting and to purchase tickets to the fashion show and luncheon, call 214.526.5868 or visit Jane Rozelle UNVEILING OSCAR AT CRYSTAL CHARITY BALL TEN BEST DRESSED Peter Copping Peter Copping for Oscar de la Renta Barbara Westbrook Art: Multimedia master Daniel Arsham 42 44 33
