Catty Shack

If, like Calvin Klein, one aspires to fashion demigodhood, it is probably not a good thing that Guy Trebay's New York Times article on one's way-over-the-top house warming party for one's way-over-the-top re-cycled Southampton Dupont mansion summarizes itself with pristine, minimalist, mortal efficiency with its last sentence:

[Bruce Weber] ... was wearing his characteristic knotted bandanna and looking blissed out as he piloted past Mr. Klein and his celebrity guests and the many for-hire beauties who all disported themselves happily in a house Mr. Klein named, none too subtly, for the land in classical mythology where the blessed go when they die.

Youch!! It almost makes one feel for Calvin Klein.
