2000 2001 2003 2002 >> Arts editor Catherine D. Anspon ventures to Moscow twice for PaperCity — in 2001 for the Glassell Gold exhibition lent by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, to the mighty Pushkin Museum, and again a decade later, trailing FotoFest's Meeting Place sponsored by Russian power art couple Dasha Zhukova and Roman Abramovich. >> It was Chalet Chic and Alpine Madness on our cover. >> Nellie Connally is honorary chair at Saks Fifth Avenue's Fashion Targets Breast Cancer (in the Pavilion on Post Oak). Frenchy Falik calls her Sara Lee: "No one doesn't like her." Bob Mackie is there. >> Ricky and Sandra di Portanova pass away in 2000, and we can't get enough of the di Portanova saga — we shoot fashion in their former home, Sandcastle, which is now offered for sale by Martha Turner for $4.5 million. When we put a mustache on model Hunter Sullivan, >> The first PaperCity Party Book hits the stands with an index of who appears and how many times. >> It's the debut of Social Soup! Money. Power. Fashion. Booze! Twin Peaks: Benjy Levit is Marc Jacobs, Paul Hobby is George W. Bush, Andrew Echols is Julian Schnabel. Still spot on. >> Editors Mia Jones and Karen Sommer Shalett join the SEAL Physical Training Course, with a 4 am start time for 10 days. Guess who drops out Day 1, after 20 minutes. >> Our crew jumps aboard Swiss International Air Lines, flies to headquarters in Zurich and Basel, photographs with Ford model Kristy Hinze (who later marries Netscape billionaire James Clark), channeling Julie Christie in Darling, and flies home. A well-spent 24 hours. >> We shoot designer Michael Dale's Palladian-inspired house just after he retires. We spell it Palladium, as in the nightclub. Anguish. >> Chuck Close is at Blaffer Gallery. >> We look inside the refrigerators of Jackson Hicks and Randy Powers. Why? >> The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston's Heroic Exhibition with 204 works on loan from the Museum of Modern Art, while it undergoes restoration. >> We shoot spring fashion in Marfa. We hardly knew where that was. And in fall we shoot in Venice. >> Bridget Jones Diary launches, and droves of women turn out at Brazos Bookstore, chipped nails and all, to meet author Helen Fielding. >> A model climbs atop stacked-up furniture for a sky- high shoot inside a not–yet-completed penthouse at Giorgio Borlenghi's Villa D'Este high-rise, making for a most memorable issue cover. Is that Milton Townsend in his modeling days, guest-starring? >> Remember Y2K? >> We photograph fashion in the new Beck Building, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, while art is still being loaded in. THE OPPORTUNITY TO IMPART TO THE PAGE — AND NOW TO DIGITAL SPACE — THE SCOOP ON THE ART WORLD AND ITS PLAYERS HAS BEEN HUGE. THE STORIES THAT STAND OUT ARE ALL FIRST PERSON: CHATTING WITH JULIAN SCHNABEL ON TWO OCCASIONS; A TRANSATLANTIC HOUR- LONG PHONE INTERVIEW WITH MICHAEL CRAIG-MARTIN IN 2015, AND EXCHANGING EMAILS WITH NATE LOWMAN AND DAVID SALLE. BUT IF THERE WAS ONE STORY THAT RESONATED ABOVE ALL, IT WAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO ASK, "WHO WAS CAROLINE WIESS LAW?" OUR NOVEMBER 2005 ARTICLE EXAMINED HER TRANSFORMATIONAL $500 MILLION BEQUEST TO THE MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS, HOUSTON, AND FEATURED INTERVIEWS WITH FRANCES AND PETER MARZIO, JACKSON HICKS AND PERSONAL ASSISTANT JO MARSH. THEN OUR PROFILE AND PHOTO SHOOT WITH CHRISTOPHER ROTHKO AT THE ROTHKO CHAPEL, ABOUT HIS FATHER'S LEGACY FOR THE SEPTEMBER 2015 ISSUE, MAY BE THE MOST TIMELESS. — Catherine D.
