Meet Audrey Gelman, the woman of the hour. While Gelman’s not a textile designer, digital strategist or anthropologist, she’s quickly and quietly defining a voice and a vision for New York. Through her job as Scott Stringer’s press secretary, Terry Richardson’s partner, Esquire’s obsession, and Lena Dunham’s friend, she’s a fascinating dichotomy of opposites, and a clear example of the witty, intelligent, transparent, stylish set of gen Y’ers making their mark on culture (and social media) today.
This picture (from the NY Times) is a favorite- it’s authentic, charismatic and not overdone. Gelman’s wearing her sister’s dress, holding her beloved cat and standing beside her Payton Turner wallpaper. Thumbs up for a fun shoot, a beautiful pattern and bright future ahead.
